Now that you're engaged (congratulations!), we're here to help you every step of the way toward that big day when you become most wonderfully, happily married. In addition to our regular issues of Real Weddings throughout the year, we've developed this new special annual issue to serve as a complete planning tool for busy couples. As always, we bring you a romantic selection of real-life weddings in venues across B.C. as inspiration for your own day, whether your style runs to rustic and relaxed, or glitzy and glamorous. But we also provide loads of practical advice and expert insights throughout, from how to hire a professional wedding planner to choosing flowers on a budget. You can also stay organized with the help of our handy checklists and worksheets inside, designed to keep your wedding on budget and on schedule. And finally, be sure to check out our comprehensive Resource Guide inside for listings of B.C. vendors, conveniently arranged by category, to help you quickly find the best local supplier or venue for your needs. We hope you'll find our new Planning Guide issue to be an invaluable reference as you take on the exciting task of putting together the wedding of your dreams. And once your magical day has passed, please share it with us — who knows, you just might see it in a future edition of Real Weddings.
