If you’re anything like us (and we trust that you are), at any given time, a lengthy list of Food Network shows can be found waiting on your DVR. And since we also feel pretty confident that a large chunk of that space is probably devoted to the Italian queen herself, Giada De Laurentiis, you can imagine our excitement when we came across Giada Weekly, a digital magazine that’s filled with recipes, entertaining tips, and advice for healthy living.

Better yet, this week’s issue, which just came out, is The Wedding Belles Issue!

Inside, you’ll find an array of creative punch recipes and easy and delicious hors d’oeuvres for bridal showers, and even a roundup of affordable three-day bachelorette getaways from across the country. Giada also breaks down her top tips for hosting a bridal shower and guides you through what to wear for all of the pre-wedding events and commitments.

Now we have to forewarn you, in order to unlock all of the fabulous features in the issue, you have to subscribe to Giada Weekly. For full access to each of the weekly issues, the subscription is $2.99 per month, or you can simply buy one issue—like, say, this wedding-themed one—at a time for 99 cents, which is easy enough. (And you can read the issue on any mobile device through the Giada: A Digital Weekly iPhone and iPad apps.)

To have Giada as your planning partner, we think it’s worth the investment.
