In the past, Delaware Today and Main Line Today have been lucky. As we were planning Bride, someone on staff was either planning her own wedding, helping a close friend plan hers, or in the midst of organizing her own son’s or daughter’s walk down the aisle. Input from a staffer who was going through it was always real and greatly informative, and it always excited everyone who was working on the magazine.
When we started working on this issue, however, we realized that, for once, none of our writers or designers were engaged or planning a wedding. (Shame on you, boyfriends.) So we thought it was a perfect time to redesign the look and feel of Delaware/Main Line Bride.
Creative director Cristela Tschumy (pictured at left) has brought new life to these pages. Our website also received a facelift.
Inside these pages, Aisle Style has it all, from what flowers will pop in your bouquet to helping mom look her best. Contributing editor Tara Behan shares a sweet story about two Main Line sisters who married only weeks apart. Writer Pam George provides tips on finding the perfect gown and Lisa Dukart, assistant editor, shares experts’ advice on who and what to bring when wedding dress shopping. The pros dissuade brides from bringing a huge entourage. Unfortunately, real life cannot mimic every episode of “Say Yes to the Dress.”
And don’t sweat fitting into that wedding gown. Our terrific editorial assistant, Emma Way, explains the advantages of bridal boot camps for getting in dress shape.
With the hundreds of breathtaking dresses popping up on this year’s runway, we had a hard time narrowing them down to a few favorites. We give you a variety of trends and styles. Whether you are planning a wedding on the beach of Rehoboth or at a Main Line country club, you will find a dress to match in “Anything Goes.”
Prepare to be swept away.
