Planning a wedding in the Pinterest era has its perks but also its pitfalls. There are so many sources of inspiration out there which gives birth to so many different trends. We believe the amount of trendy inspo on hand is a great thing, but by having a trendy wedding, you also run the risk of creating a look that might date. We devote this issue to taking a step back and looking at classic and timeless weddings with fresh eyes.
The 'Simply Beautiful' issue is filled with ideas imbued with a touch of what is current, but are essentially examples of enduring style. Our cover gown by Goddess By Nature is a perfect example. Traditional lace is cut in a sleek and form fitting style - the perfect marriage of trend and tradition. Pair this with pared-back hair and makeup and you've got yourself bridal look that will stand the test of time.
You classic fashion fix starts on page 44 with our 'Modern Classics' feature which guides you on the art of balancing current and timeless big day looks. Once you're equipped with our top tips, check out one of three swoon-worth fashion editorial shoots; 'Floating On Air' (page 66), 'Making Waves' (page 118) and 'Modern Muse' (page 176). Then spoil your main girls with equally brilliant fashion ideas with our '#Squad Style' story on page 96.
We tackle all the important little details to help you finish your bridal look with our 'Shine Bright' (page 160) and 'Second Life Lustre' (page 150) jewellery features and 'The Best Version Of You' beauty story (page 234).
