from the editor

As I sat down to write this, I wasn’t sure of where to start although I knew what I wanted to say and the impression I wanted to leave. I imagine this is how many brides feel when sitting down to plan their weddings. It’s a big job, it’s important and you want to get it right. So to get started with my editor’s letter and make it as meaningful as I could, I decided to speak from the heart and share the things I think are most important for those planning a wedding. 1. Money, money, money. The thing we never quite have enough of but manage to spend in our minds even before it has entered our bank accounts. Despite careful budgeting, many of us get caught out when…

a bridal bazaar

Heather Anschau, editor at Wedded Wonderland, offers her take on this year’s hottest trend — the bridal bazaar: a magical hotpot of colours and patterns perfect for a day with a difference. “At Wedded Wonderland we never do things in half measures, which is why I’ve embraced the bazaar trend with such passion. It’s all about exoticism, romance and mystery, with golds, jewel-toned colour palettes and rich textures. To interpret this trend for a bride, it’s important to layer. Think belts, hand jewels, gold earrings and embellished veils. “This season it’s important to be bold and combine a high-fashion splurge with beautiful one-off bazaar or market steals. The secret to any trend is to interpret it using your own personal style philosophy and never buy anything that doesn’t make you swoon.”…

la vie en rose

I believe that love can be expressed in so many different ways. Think of all the romantic ballads we’ve heard over the years, or notes penned lovingly through the centuries. A wedding is a beautiful extension of this expression of love, but all too often the focus tends to be on the whirlwind of theming packages, costs and schedules that ensue.

There are many elements that set the stage for you to build on with expressions of yourselves. Think music, colour, theming or communication…

Wise words From the word go in a relationship, do little things daily and often, rather than infrequent big grand gestures. That way you create a culture of positivity and a solid friendship. Start with how you talk to each other — every day, check in and debrief. Most importantly, put the stress on listening rather than giving solutions so you are siding with your partner. Throughout or at the end of the day, say three things that you appreciate about them — the clothes they wore, that they picked up the kids or sorted out their phone bill. Make sure there is a lot of fondness and appreciation happening. Fight fair When you raise an issue, do it softly. Good listening comes from good talking. Use “I feel” statements and avoid using…
