Time to say yes to...our latest issue. The Brides August/September 2017 mag is hitting newsstands—and it's our special style issue! With this glossy in your arsenal, wedding dress shopping is about to be as breezy as a late summer day spent flipping through these pages poolside.

Your wedding dress inspiration—found! In our August/September 2017 issue, we're showcasing the prettiest gowns that walked the runways at Bridal Fashion Week. From new designers to the coolest embellishments and unexpected silhouettes, these stunning frocks are rife with fresh, fashion-forward details that are the ultimate in bridal style. We also found the sexiest wedding dresses for plus-size brides—you're going to love these!

Now that you've found your dream dress on these glossy pages, we're going to show you where to find it IRL, thanks to our annual list of the best bridal salons across the U.S. Whether you live in the Northeast, the Midwest, the South, or out West, here's where to go for the most enjoyable experience and the most gorgeous of gowns.

And after you figured out where you want to shop, make sure you read our tips for the how. Check out our Ultimate Guide to Buying the Dress and make those salon visits actually count (don't forget to do your homework!). This is the moment you've been waiting for since you were a little girl (or least since the third date), after all, so follow these steps to find "the one" and have fun along the way.

One wedding dress we're especially obsessed with? That of our cover girl Hannah Bronfman. The founder of HBFIT, DJ, and all-around cool girl recently wed her love Brendan Fallis in Morocco over the course of a four-day party where Bronfman rocked at least eight wedding looks, including an over-the-top princess gown and a timeless custom-made Vera Wang. And from the fire breathers to the camel rides, we have all the deets!

Hmm... Wonder if Hannah stopped by any of favorite bridal salons to score her fab frocks...
