To say that COVID-19 threw a monkey wrench into wedding planning is a crazy understatement.
The wedding industry is filled with talented professionals, who can, well, pivot, and do pivot for the benefit of their clients. It’s why it’s even more vital right now to have pros in your corner, helping to guide you through this crazy time, leading up to your big day. We are so lucky to work with many of these professionals—we’re honored to feature their work within the pages of our magazine, website and social media. They want to help you achieve the wedding of your dreams in this new “normal.” So let’s get started, shall we?!
Need wedding planning advice? We have not one, but two, expert advice columns in this issue with one to guide you through planning your wedding in the age of COVID-19.
Next, you’ll flip over our wedding inspiration photo shoots starting on page 45: “Love You to the Moon and Back,” “Totally Cray in Love,” “Honey Bee Good,” and “The Mountains are Calling.” Then, check out our cover model contest finalist feature: “Sugar Rush” (note, normally we do two cover model features, but with the pandemic we had to push one to our next issue!). We had a great time playing dress up—with gorgeous hair, makeup, accessories, bouquets and dresses—and working with talented design teams to create inspiring décor sets. Oh, and if you want to see more photos from any of our shoots, be sure to tune in to our website for each photo shoots’ blog series—we’ll overwhelm you with more gorgeousness!
From “Plus One” and our “Gift Guide” columns to the 29 featured real weddings and featured wedding pros in our “Style Files: The White List Directory,” and every page in between, this issue is bursting at the seams! Get inspired. Find your vendors. Plan the day of your dreams…all with Real Weddings: the magazine, website, blog and social media.
When you find your wedding dream team through Real Weddings—the magazine, blog, website, mobile app, mobile directory and our social media sites— be sure to tell your wedding pros that you found them through Real Weddings and that you’re a Real Weddings’ reader because without their support, we simply couldn’t do what we do to inspire you!
(Oh, and P.S. Tell them that you’re a Real Weddings’ reader because a lot of our partners have special offers exclusively for our readers. Click Here > realweddingsmag.com/special-offers.)
As always, dear readers, happy planning!
