FROM THE EDITOR
While planning your wedding, its easy to let the world revolve around gowns, vows and the chicken-versus-fish debate. You can have your head so wrapped in The Big Days details that you forget to pay attention to the everyday ones. But you dont have to become a tunnel-visioned Bridezilla.
First, take off the blinders. Then flip to page 28 for some ideas on how to plan your wedding without losing your job. Theresa Medoff scrounges up some ideas on how to balance wedding planning and your other full-time work load. It can be done without your career suffering.
Bosses arent the only ones who can feel a little forgotten during the pre-wedding frenzy. Remember that man you promised to spend your life with? Hes pretty important, too. Michael Bradley interviews three grooms and gets the dirt on what the wedding is like from the other side. Turn to page 30 to hear the men dish on the highs, the lows and the nerves.
So now that weve jogged your memory on your work and your fiancé, there are some things that you can forgetnamely those funky old traditions that went out of style with shag carpeting. Ignore the guidelines that dictate who wears what and who coughs up the cash. Maria Hess writes that the new rule book is much more flexible. Read page 68 to see how things have changed.
As you flip through our pages, you may notice that Delaware Bride looks a little different. The new style is the work of local designer Leslie Kedash. We hope you like the changes as much as we do. Let us know what you think. Whether youve got cheers or jeers, we want to hear them. Send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And while youre at it, send in a few of your favorite wedding shots. We just might be able to use them in the magazine.
