With celebration in the air and family nearby, this time of the year is well-suited for proposals—so much so, it's safe to say holiday season is the unofficial engagement season. Our new issue is here to inspire and inform you from "yes" to "I do."
For big-picture inspo, look to our five real weddings inside. You'll find two destination weddings overseas—one in Kenya and the other in Ireland—and a Jackson Hole celebration set against the majestic Tetons. We also share one couple's holiday-season fête in Virginia (complete with carolers, hot cocoa, and bells), and California nuptials set in a cool SoCal loft.
Turn to the Planner section for the ultimate countdown checklist, plus in-depth articles on navigating tricky tasks (like narrowing down the guest list). Our new issue also has dozens of ideas to outfit your day and yourself: To spark your imagination, we've gathered gowns that nod to iconic movies like The Great Gatsby, The Princess Bride, and La La Land. You'll also find looks that match any venue or wedding style, whether it's a glittering ballroom affair, a sweet rendezvous at city hall, or somewhere between. And when you've found a style you love, get shoes to match: We picked nearly 30 pairs to suit any style. We also share inventive ideas for your day-of décor, from verdant foliage arrangements to textile-inspired cakes.
At last, flip to our Getaways section for dream destinations perfect for unwinding after the planning and celebrating. We share an island-hopping trip in Southeast Asia and flora and fauna-filled escapes near and far.
