ASK the EX­PERTS

Weddingbells (Toronto) - - EDITOR ’S LETTER -

wed­ding sea­son has been in full ef­fect in our of­fice over the last few months. Be­tween our sis­ter magazines FASHION and Glow, we had five brides in our midst whose cel­e­bra­tions were sprin­kled through­out high-wed­ding sea­son (July to Oc­to­ber). See­ing our col­leagues’ gor­geous and unique events come to life was a spe­cial treat for us at Wed­ding­bells, as we of­ten play the un­of­fi­cial role of wed­ding plan­ner, sug­gest­ing ev­ery­thing from venues and ven­dors to dress styles, and act­ing as a calm­ing force in the busy days be­fore wed­ding go-time. That’s our job. As Canada’s lead­ing wed­ding-me­dia ex­perts, con­sider us your plan­ner and best friend—some­one you can reach out to any time to help with each and ev­ery mo­ment of your wed­ding day. We’re here to be an ear and to pro­vide guid­ance when it comes to chal­leng­ing tasks like man­ag­ing your wed­ding bud­get and guest list, cre­at­ing a menu to please ev­ery palate, and con­trol­ling your event’s so­cial me­dia pres­ence. Of course we also aim to in­spire you with cool and exclusive ideas for your party—find inspo daily on our web­site, across all our so­cial chan­nels and here in the mag­a­zine in the pages that fol­low.

In this is­sue we have tons of amaz­ing bridal fashion in­spi­ra­tion. Check out the top haute gowns fresh from the New York run­ways (p. 56), then read on to see how we’re styling some of the best dresses. If you favour clas­sic ele­gance with a dash of drama, you’ll love “Ethe­real Girl” (p. 47). For a more re­laxed vibe, see our take on mod­ern boho in “Field of Dreams” (p. 136). Round­ing out the fashion finds is “Tak­ing Flight” (p. 144), where we show­case our eight favourite bridal-gown trends, each dra­matic and equally state­ment mak­ing.

Other faves in this is­sue in­clude ex­quis­ite bou­quets that smell as good as they look (“Aro­mather­apy” p. 100), a su­per­sweet cake trend that’s crys­talline cool (“Rock It” p. 95), and 37 beauty essen­tials you need for your wed­ding (p. 71). Also see four of our of­fice’s brides fea­tured in this is­sue—look for the real wed­dings of Caitlin, Emily, Ni­cole and Beth!

We’d love to see and share your real wed­ding— visit wed­ding­bells.ca to sub­mit. Fol­low us on so­cial @wed­ding­bells­mag so you don’t miss a minute of daily inspo; and #BTS looks at what we are do­ing, where we’re go­ing and what’s in­spir­ing us.

Happy plan­ning!
