Real Weddings, Special Issue 2012
This special issue is all about you! We've picked our favorite moments and inspired ideas from real weddings we've featured over the years, plus tons of brand-new ways to plan your event. It's also the debut of our Big-Day Beauty Awards, where recent brides share the makeup, skin, and hair products that really got them gorgeous and glowing.
As you prep for the aisle, please nominate your own must-haves (email firstname.lastname@example.org), and remember: Whether you're getting married tomorrow or years from now, we can’t wait to hear about it.
