Since the last issue of New Orleans Bride, I have been in the craziness of my own wedding planning. My fiancé and I got engaged in August 2013 after a lovely dinner at Coquette, and since then I have been planning my big day. I now have an even better understanding of what it takes to plan a wedding – I never thought I would be so conflicted over the color of my bridesmaids’ shoes.
Wedding planning can be stressful, so I hope the articles in this magazine make it easier for you. I encourage you to get inspired by our fashion spread (page 58), which was beautifully put together by stylist Julia Hohne and Art Director Tiffani Reding Amedeo. It was photographed by Theresa Cassagne, who actually built the swing on page 73. If you’re in the early stages of planning and you’re looking for a spot for your reception, check out our guide to 10 places for a reception (page 80). If you have any questions about where to find the items or vendors in this issue, turn to page 142 for all the contact information. If you have any questions about this issue or wedding planning in general, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Twitter @haleyadams25. I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for picking up this issue of New Orleans Bride and I wish you the best in your wedding planning. Make sure you take some time for a few extra pampering sessions and some champagne sipping. You’re going to be a bride, after all; enjoy your engagement.
