have learnt a lot about love over time by looking at my parents. They do not always see everything eye to eye, but I know for sure that they love each other. As I have prepared many editions of MAXXbrides, I realize that what’s most important for a wedding is never the party. Yes, you do want that special moment when you both start the first day of the rest of your life together to be unforgettable but what’s most important is the life that you are going to have together as husband and wife. To be there for each other in ‘sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, in good times and in bad, till death do you part.’ I have learnt by observing my parents that what matters the most is finding someone who will stand by your side, who will pick you up when you are down, who will be your strength when you are weak, who will always believe in you even when you do not believe in yourself.
Another thing that I have learnt is that it takes an army to prepare a wedding, so let’s get the preparations started. This edition is packed with ideas, inspiration, and tips to turn your wedding dream into reality.
A perfect wedding is everyone’s dream, but everyone has their ideas about what their dream wedding should be. Some people might want an intimate affair with relatives and close friends, while others may dream of an extravagant party to celebrate their special day. When it comes to preparing for your perfect wedding choosing the right venue plays an important role. In this edition, we take a look at some of the best venues around, from luxurious five-star hotel ballrooms in big cities in Indonesia to romantic wedding chapels in some of the world’s most romantic islands.
Understanding that choosing the perfect chapel goes a long way towards creating that romantic wedding of your dreams, we traverse the country in search of “Chapels of Love.” Sweet memories are meant to be kept in your heart and beautiful frames. “Capture the Best Moment” and let the world see the beauty of your love.
After spending months planning the perfect wedding, it is all over in a few hours. Now it’s time to relax and enjoy your first days as a couple before real life intrudes. The only thing better than a perfect wedding is a perfect honeymoon, a time to luxuriate in the newness of coupledom. Needless to say, a honeymoon is also the perfect excuse to embark on the holiday of your life. Just like a wedding, perfect honeymoons don’t just happen; it has to be planned carefully. If you need a little help, “Just the Two of Us” section is filled with gorgeous honeymoon destinations.
As flower blossoms with hope anew, I wish you the same in your married life – a fresh start to eternal bliss, side by side with the one you love.
