wedding fashion for all

When the team and I started talking about our Fashion Issue, one thing was top of mind—it had to be inclusive of all people and styles. While a white dress and black tux are beautiful, they’re by no means your only options. After all, on your wedding day, you should feel like the best version of yourself—and what you wear can play a big part in that. So in addition to our coverage of Bridal Fashion Week (read: stunning white dresses), you’ll find stories of real brides who wore something other than white—from a black gown (p. 44) to a purple suit (p. 46).

Along the way, I love to shop and collect souvenirs, often shipping things home so I don’t feel limited by my luggage. Pro tip: Keep a travel folder with language apps or maps on your phone. I also save the locations of recommended restaurants, markets and shops on Google Maps in advance of my trip. I keep those handy in order to…
