If this season’s wedding gown trends are any indication, weddings are going glam. Regal detailing, loads of shimmer and shine and luxe sophistication abounds and we are here for it. As we learn how to live in this ever-cautious era of pandemic protocols, our celebrations have become more intimate, but we’re putting even more thought into how to make them special, memorable and infused with razzle-dazzle. Our fashion spread on page 36 explores this concept of refined glamour and puts style center stage.

Meanwhile, we also have everything else you need to pull off a chic, personality-filled, festive and fun fête to remember — big or small. The weddings of 2022 are born of lessons learned over the past two years. Our cuisine and cocktail trends offer up the most lavish ways to fortify and refresh your guests. Tips from photographers, gorgeous cakes and the hottest makeup, skincare and haircare products will leave no stone unturned as you plan your dreamiest Big Day.

Now more than ever, staying flexible is key. Every wedding has a mishap and nearly every mishap ends up — eventually — being the funniest or most compelling story. We’ve all learned a thing or two throughout the past two years that translates to both wedding and life advice. Such as, to laugh off the small stuff (and most of it is small stuff), worry less about things and more about people, to be kind to ourselves and others and to celebrate everything — especially love.

May your wedding day and your marriage be filled with kindness, joy and love. Cheers!
