editor’s letter

“Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” You’re getting married! Congratulations. We love filling your head with hundreds of inspiring ideas—like destinationinspired stationery (p. 138)—as well as the practical advice you need to get your planning done. From the most effective beauty products for every wedding-related event (p. 213) to a flower primer you’ll want to tear out and take with you to your first meeting with a florist (p. 145), this issue was created to help with all your to-dos and make you feel confident every step of the way. And when it comes to fashion, we’ve got brides and grooms covered. In “Playing for Keeps” (p. 178), we used a carousel, cotton candy and other playful elements to show how edgy silhouettes, unconventional hues and unique accessories can…

Q My wedding band and engagement ring are both platinum, but I’m thinking about wearing gold jewelry for my wedding. Will that work? A You can absolutely mix metals on your wedding day. Your engagement ring and wedding band might be your most meaningful (and asked about) jewelry, but that doesn’t mean they have to stand alone or dictate your entire look. For a little fashion inspiration, let the color and details of your gown point you toward which baubles will work best for your wedding. Gold usually pairs beautifully with creamier ivory fabrics, while silver typically complements brighter whites. RUDE REMARKS Q A friend of ours keeps making comments about our wedding budget, wondering aloud how we’re paying for it—in front of other people. How can we deal with these types of…

6 untamed bouquets

1 BEST BUDS Hold something bold and trade classic white orchids for similar blooms in a brighter hue. 2 BUNCHES OF BARLEY A cluster of fresh barley creates a modest, unexpected bouquet perfect for rustic affairs. 3 FULL BLOOM Carry an asymmetrical arrangement of muted florals tied with a chic pink ribbon for a look that’s fresh and fragrant. 4 FLOWER POWER Let loose with an overgrown cluster of moody, fall-inspired florals. (Bonus points if it coordinates with your flower crown.) 5 FOODIE FLAIR Fresh succulents and purple artichokes provide a pop of texture for a bunch that’s good enough to eat. 6 WILD THING This lavish, foliage-filled bouquet definitely makes our hearts sing.
