Summer is prime wedding season - and prime party season - so it's no surprise the latest issue of Wedding Inspirations magazine is filled with sizzling ideas for stylish celebrations.
On sale from December 3, this leading bridal title covers all aspects of the wedding day, from bridal fashion and beauty to reception themes, cakes, flowers and even honeymoons.
Highlights of the summer issue include a dreamy fashion feature photographed on location in the African bush and an elegant lingerie shoot. DIY pops up in our step-by-step bridal make-up guide as well as in two of the party themes: one a casual country affair and the other a nostalgic gathering featuring candy-coloured patterns and popcorn. If sophisticated is more your style, turn to the main reception theme for a beautiful party look inspired by French toile. You'll also find delectable dessert tables (a key trend for 2013) and four popular bridal blooms styled in various ways.
As always, there is plenty of valuable advice and information. Look out for a groom's guide, full of tips and hints for the man of the moment, as well as a comprehensive article on destination weddings. The latter is essential reading if you're considering marrying abroad.
We also bring you the top wedding trends for 2013 as predicted by industry experts, advice from real-life wedding guests and 20 of the hottest honeymoon destinations right now.
Add to the mix new bridal fitness finds, the latest catwalk looks and real weddings to admire and you have a magazine you simply cannot afford to miss!
The summer issue is on sale for R49.95 at stores such as CNA, Exclusive Books, PNA and Dis-Chem, as well as selected SPAR supermarkets and independent retailers. Alternatively subscribe and never miss an issue. Details are at weddinginspirations.co.za
