When I arrived home after work last week & checked my mail, it was like Christmas morning… on a random Wednesday in November! I was highly anticipating and eagerly awaiting the annual release of my all-time favorite magazine, Southern Weddings Volume 7 (V7). Goodness gracious, the mission behind this company and their exquisite magazine is near and dear to my heart, and it resonates so deeply with me! Very little inspires me like the Southern Weddings magazine and brand. This issue is chock full with stunning images, beautiful love stories, inspiring wedding and marriage advice, fabulous florals, exquisite detail, helpful hints and tips, Southern graciousness and goodness, and everything else you’d want out of a wedding magazine. Believe me when I say it’s the best out there, bar none.
This issue of the magazine inspiration was that “we wanted to celebrate the community that surrounds a bride on the way to her wedding day. We wanted to honor best friends, who do so much to get us down the aisle. And we wanted to empower our couples to be confident as they make decisions throughout their engagement, secure in the knowledge that their wedding is only the beginning, and that they can write the story of their life together, no matter what has come before.” (from the SW website)
I already spent an entire evening poring over each and every photo, wedding, and word, taking it all in. What a perfect nod to celebrating Southern weddings and marriages! I couldn’t have been more blown away by the 300+ pages filled to the brim with inspiration and stunning work.
I would definitely encourage you to snag your own copy & prepare to be inspired and encouraged and wowed over and over again!
AND! Not only did the fabulous ladies of Southern Weddings just release V7, they also launched the PERFECT Wedding Planner. If it comes from Southern Weddings, you know it’s going to be the best, truly. Their newest signature product (now available for preorder) is all-around amazing, and it connects deeply to the mission of Southern Weddings – it’s not just about a pretty wedding, but it’s about getting the best information available, the heart behind your wedding, and ultimately planning for your marriage (after all, that’s what it’s all about!).
From the Southern Weddings website:
“From the “First Steps After Getting Engaged” to the “Anniversary Gift Guide,” our planner encourages brides to plan marriages more beautiful than their weddings, but also gives them the tools to feel confident and equipped throughout their engagements. True to the mission of Southern Weddings, it includes a special “Marriage Planning” section that will help couples begin married life in a joyful and intentional way!”
Check out more details about the heart, soul, and mission behind the Southern Weddings Wedding Planner on their website, and order one (for you, for a client, or for an engaged friend!) on the Southern Weddings Shop website! I can’t wait to get my hands on them (not for myself, quite yet), but for my brides and my dear friends who are planning their weddings. I know it’s going to be an incredible investment in the wedding planning – and marriage planning – process!
