  • from the editorCongratulations! Youre in love. Youre planning a wedding. Youre getting married. And, youve picked up a Spectacular Bride to help guide you through the process. Youre off to a great start.

    While certain rules of etiquette will stand the test of time, such as: never include the bridal registry information on your invitation, always send a thank you card, and avoid the no-host bar, many others are bending to the times. Its all about your style, your statement and your vision. Whether a cocktail lounge theme or a sophisticated formal affair, this day is so totally about YOUit begs for your personal touch.

    Not sure where to begin your journey? Start by visiting a quality bridal show and collect ideas, brochures from wedding professionals and interview vendors. Take the information home and organize it by category. Then agree on the theme. Youll find lots of inspiration both at our shows and in this magazine as you see Real Weddings from other brides who married in Las Vegas or near by destinations.

    I got to experience first hand what you are going through recently as my only daughter got married. It is a huge task, but a wonderful experience. Welcome the butterflies and the tender nervous moments of the day. Fee
