If you’ve noticed that more and more weddings these days are breaking from staid, stuffy traditions to incorporate fun activities and details, you’re not alone. Ice luges, late-night snacks, bar games … the details couples are focusing on are all about the “guest experience,” and that’s industry lingo for throwing the best party possible.

We here at PW couldn’t be happier about this shift, and that’s precisely why we dedicated an entire magazine to it. Our Summer/Fall 2018 issue is “The Party Issue,” and inside you’ll find everything you need to know about turning your Philly wedding into the raddest party you’ve ever attended.

Here’s a rundown of what’s inside:
