Sneak Peek: The Fall/Winter 2011 Issue Is Here!

Here's a quick glimpse before it hits stands on the 25th.

Hello, brides!

Well we are all very excited over here at PW, because the fall/winter 2011 issues just came into the office this week!

We’re always excited when the boxes finally arrive — but this time, probably even more so. See, this time around, we made some changes. There’s a new design across every page — and, if you were an engaged lady when our last issue came out, you may even notice that the front section is expanded to cover even more details of your wedding, and that the number of local real weddings we feature has doubled, to now show you four beautiful examples of how to throw a wedding in this town.

It’s on stands on Monday, July 25th — but until then, we thought we’d give you this little sneak peek. Check it out — and then go pick one up for yourself, and your engaged friends! We hope you love it, too.

Snow Day: We’ll show you nearly a dozen gowns perfect for your cold-weather wedding — and a few ensembles for him! — in our feature shot on location in the beautiful, rustic, and best of all, snowy (!) Poconos. (Though all the dresses are available at a salon near you, of course.) To give you a feel for this story, just check out our cover, above.

The Prettiest Trends: From princess-perfect accessories and jewel-tone flowers to a gown in the softest shade of gray, we show you some of our favorite looks for the season — and throw in a few ideas for him, too.

Honeymoon in Curacao: This gorgeous Caribbean island offers all the lounge-by-the-sea laziness you could want — plus loads of surprising adventures (ostrich riding, anyone?) for when you’re feeling rejuvenated. (The issue also covers ‘moons in Mexico and Bermuda!)

Real Wedding at The Kimmel Center: We just can’t get enough of Christi & Brad’s Center City wedding, and know you’ll love it, too. Check out their personal touches and unique decor — then go grab an issue to see our other real weddings at Cliveden of the National Trust, Merion Cricket Club, and The Crystal Tea Room.
