Look at the couple on the left. Don’t they look happy? Delaware Bride wants to see you look like that, too. This magazine exists for the exclusive purpose of helping you find what you need to make the biggest day of your life the happiest and, we hope, easiest day of your life.
In these pages, you’ll see nothing that isn’t available here at home. Unlike items in national magazines, every dress, every ring, every cake is made or supplied by a local vendor.
Not only that, every piece of advice is supplied by a Delaware expert. Whether you’re looking for tips on decorating your first home (page 39), wisdom about how to manage you and your husband’s money (page 42), or any number of suggestions about planning, etiquette, fashion, gifts and more, it’s to be had from a planner or other professional here in the First State.
And Delaware Bride is only a starting point. You can find much, much more at www.delawaretoday.com. Near the top of the home page, click the Delaware Bride tab on the menu bar. It will deliver you to a page where you can search for anything you may need: fashions and formalwear, registries and gifts, flowers and decor, photographers and videographers, reception sites and banquet halls, salons and makeup artists, cake bakers and dessert makers, caterers, stationers and invitation printers, limos and transportation, musicians and entertainers, and, of course, wedding planners.
We at Delaware Bride owe a great big thanks to everyone who supplies items for photo features. You’ll see their gowns and jewelry in “Glitz and Glamour” on page 46, their spectacular cakes and table accessories in “Sweet Surprises” on page 56, and their gorgeous diamonds in “Rings of Fire” on page 60. Elsewhere, you’ll find gift items, fashion accessories, dinnerware and more.
So feast your eyes. You’ll find plenty of terrific ideas for your wedding and reception. We know how important they are to you. They’re just as important to us. –Mark Nardone
