Strap on your stilettos and ready your Instagram—wedding season has arrived! Whether you're planning your own nuptials or just have a full calendar of I dos to attend, Brides, as always, is here to help and our June/July 2018 issue is just the place to start. Starring our cover girl Chanel Iman, our newest issue (hitting newsstands now!) is jam-packed with all the tips, tricks, and inspiration you need to make it through wedding season in one piece.
Headlining the newest issue of Brides is the incredibly stunning wedding album of supermodel Chanel Iman and New York Giant Sterling Shepard. After years of walking runways, this model strutted down the aisle in a classic and floral-filled Beverly Hills celebration to wed her soulmate. "I was walking toward the man of my dreams," recalls Iman. "When I saw him tearing up, I almost started bawling myself."
But, while you could spend hours drooling over the photos of Iman's ceremony and reception, which featured the likes of Tiffany Haddish, Chrissy Teigen, and Odell Beckham Jr., you still need to plan your own big day. Time to get to work!
Thinking of tying the knot in the Jamaican sand, a Tuscan villa, or Irish castle? Here's how to decide—once and for all—if a destination wedding is right for you and your boo. In fact, the June/July 2018 issue has everything you need to turn a destination dream into a reality, from the perfect wedding dress for your faraway venue to the fine art of destination guest lists.
But even if you opt for a stateside ceremony, you still have your honeymoon to soak up the sun. Slip away with your new spouse to the next-level vacays that make up our annual Brides Honeymoon Awards. This list of gorgeous getaways include the best-of-the-best when it comes to resorts, affordable hotels, and romantic nature lodges. Sure, your big day will be amazing, but jet off to any of these luxe locales and we're willing to bet that the honeymoon might just be your favorite part of this whole wedding thing.
