This issue of TriadWeddings is sure to jump start the planning

gown is a big part of the planning equation. Every bride wants
her wedding to make a statement, and most brides want their wedding
attire to prompt exclamations of “wow” and “how
gorgeous!” Fortunately, it’s never been easier to create
a sense of high fashion when planning a wedding, and area experts
share the latest fashion tips and trends to fit all shapes, sizes…and
budgets! (beginning on page 36).
Many brides like to have that special woman in their life accompany
them as they search for the perfect gown. Wedding planner, Kat
Mendenhall of Merrymaking Events, shares some inspiring ways to
celebrate that special woman in your life. Whether it’s your
mom, aunt, grandmother or a special friend, celebrate the person
who helped you become the blushing bride you are today with these
thoughtful sentiments (beginning on page 26).
And let’s not forget the men in your life, specifically the
groom, who’s in charge of planning the long awaited honeymoon!
We all know that booking your honeymoon on your own is an endeavor
for only the bravest of grooms. We turned to our friends at A Way
To Go Travel to find out why hiring a travel professional can be
the lifesaver you need. Check out their top 10 honeymoon tips to
ensure you’ll have a vacation to remember on page 28.
