From the Editor: Welcome




For years, you’ve probably imagined what your wedding would be like, but now you’ve said “yes” and the planning begins in earnest. To create the perfect day, it seems like there are a million decisions to make — what kind of dress, what kind of flowers, where to have the reception, the list goes on and on. We’re here to help. New Hampshire Magazine put together this special issue of BRIDE, our third annual, to show you how to get started. We hope you’ll see us as a trusted friend who will offer ideas, feed your creativity and help guide you every step of the way. After searching the state, we’ve gathered together some of the most beautiful and interesting bridal accoutrements New Hampshire has to offer — jewelry, dresses, flowers and more. We also compiled a comprehensive list of the state’s best reception sites, with all the contact information you’ll need. We show you how you can make your wedding one of a kind, with sophisticated and interesting themes. Well-known wedding consultant Ann Connell Bergin offers tips on some do’s and don’ts of theme weddings. And don’t miss the new feature “Real Weddings,” where we feature two brides (one of them the assistant editor for BRIDE, Shannon Spiliotis) who got married this past year. Because we can’t squeeze all the information you need into this one magazine, we’ve created a Web site (www.nhmagazine.com/bride) that has much more for your perusal — extra features, etiquette tips and links to local resources. Enjoy this very special time for you and your beloved and, from everyone here, our very best wishes for a wonderful life together. Barbara Coles Editor P.S. We’d love to hear from you — whatever you’d like to share about your wedding. We’re also looking for weddings to feature on our Web site and in next year’s BRIDE. If you’re interested, e-mail me at bcoles@nhmagazine.com.
