ED’S LET­TERS

YOU Weddings - - ED’S LETTERS - Danél Kim

THERE will prob­a­bly never be an­other day in your life when you go to as much trou­ble with your ap­pear­ance. And per­haps you’ll never again or­gan­ise such a big cel­e­bra­tion where ev­ery­thing re­volves around you, your groom and the cel­e­bra­tion of your love – all in the pres­ence of your near­est and dear­est fam­ily and friends. To help plan this spe­cial day, we fea­ture 20 in­spir­ing wed­dings of celebrities such as Lwazi and Stephanie Mvovo (page 8), Hlubi Mboya and Kirsten Arnold (page 22), Roxy Burger and Neil Shraga (page 28), as well as the most beau­ti­ful read­ers’ wed­dings.

We also in­tro­duce our fab­u­lous panel of ex­perts who pro­vide use­ful and prac­ti­cal tips through­out the mag­a­zine. I hope you en­joy ev­ery step of plan­ning your wed­ding day – be cre­ative, think out of the box, dream big and let love tri­umph.

THE thing brides tell us they re­mem­ber most about their wed­ding day is the look on the groom’s face as they walked down the aisle to­wards him. This mem­ory is likely one that will stay with you for­ever, along with mem­o­ries of your dress, cake, the flow­ers, food and the en­joy­ment of your guests. It’s with this in mind that we put to­gether YOU Wed­dings – and have in­cluded ev­ery­thing of the very best so you can have the most gor­geous day, one you’ll be happy to look back on years from now.

Our 10-page wed­ding dress fea­ture starts on page 74 and we’ve grouped them ac­cord­ing to price, bear­ing in mind that ever-im­por­tant wed­ding bud­get. Our grooms on page 102 wear al­ter­na­tives to the tra­di­tional tux and we hope you find in­spi­ra­tion from our top picks of cakes (page 110), shoes (page 94) and brides­maid dresses (page 98). On page 106, ex­perts re­veal the latest wed­ding trends that’s all about in­ti­macy, green­ery and all things sparkly – what’s not to love?

Here’s to your big day – we hope it’s ev­ery­thing you’ve dreamt of and more...
