You thought your future mother-in-law's guest list number was big? Just wait until you see our latest issue! The BRIDES February/March 2017 issue — a.k.a. our biggest mag of the year — is about to hit newsstands, and we wouldn't be surprised if one or two collapsed under the weight of these countless glossy pages. So cancel your weekend plans, silence your cell phone, and pour yourself a glass of that champagne you've been keeping on ice (for all those pre-"I do" celebrations, of course!) — wedding planning is a marathon, not a sprint...

BRIDES February/March 2017 may be the heavyweight champ of the year, but what makes up all those pretty pages? We've got 383 — count 'em, 383! — party ideas to inspire brides-to-be. From wedding cakes you can just about taste to fabulous florals that you can almost smell, with these fresh suggestions, every aspect of your big day is practically 3, 2, 1, done!

Need another reason to go out and get your hands on this mag? It's also jam-packed with more wedding dresses than a bridal boutique. There's over 20 pages of gorgeous gowns in our latest issue AND the 78 (yes, there's 78 of 'em) of the best wedding hair and beauty tips to help you complete your big day look. Can you say score?

But wait, darlings! There's (of course) more. Our new budget guide is guaranteed to become your go-to to reference when you're debating splurging on that Oscar de la Renta wedding dress, gold foil RSVP cards, or an extra plate or two at the reception for those last minute guest list additions. Oh, and speaking of that ever-expanding list of attendees, be sure to also check out our top guest list dos and don'ts that'll definitely keep you within your wedding venue's legal limits. (Trust us, the fire department will thank you!)

What? You haven't found a venue yet? Again, we've got you covered! We're profiling the 50 best venues in the U.S. in our February/March 2017 issue, including the country's most beautiful ballrooms, hottest hotels, and gorgeous grounds to tie the knot. Editors and real brides alike are obsessed with these stunning spaces. And wedding venues aren't the only thing real-life brides are dishing on within these glossy pages.

Over 200 real brides are getting real and telling all in this month's mag, resulting in some seriously great girl-to-girl advice everyone can use, including the coolest real bride of them all — Lauren Conrad! Conrad is slaying as our new columnist and is here to answer all of your burning bridal questions (seriously!).

So what are you waiting for? Go out and grab our latest issue of BRIDES Magazine. We promise you — probably — won't need a forklift. Meanwhile, you can find us hanging out with our new BFF, Lauren. (Jealous?)
