There are many things that make spring so alluring and you'll find several of them - including fresh flowers, colour and romance - all over the new issue of Wedding Inspirations magazine.
The bumper edition (the magazine's largest to date) goes on sale on September 8 and, as with previous issues, looks set to delight brides with its glossy mix of current information and on-trend inspiration.
Grooms are in for a treat this time, too, with a dedicated guy's section that covers everything from fashion options for the big day to planning roles and responsibilities. If you know a stressed-out husband-to-be, point him to the sanity-saving pep talk on page 64 and watch his worries ease!
Highlights of the main magazine include brilliant bridal beauty, breathtaking bridal fashion (blush is clearly the
colour of the moment) and four irresistible new reception themes. The first is a sunny celebration, styled in bright yellow (a hot hue for summer parties), and the second a soft, woodlands-inspired special occasion. There's also a lavish wedding look (note the exquisite flowers) and an elegant Out of Africa
theme. More creative ideas abound in the DIY farmer's market-style bridal shower and features on statement stationery, naked cakes and bridal bouquets.
