CHICAGO, IL, February 26, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The latest issue of Chicago Bride magazine, both print and enhanced digital editions, is packed with great tips and articles to start off a fresh new year - and new decade - in wedding planning!
Our featured cover story is a uniquely different venue - the Adler Planetarium (which offers five tips to creating a truly Chicago wedding experience that's out of this world).
Topping off the issue is our featured, full-length article "Wedding Trends for 2020" to help you plan the wedding of the decade. This article takes an in-depth look at all of the new trends and movements towards redefining weddings and challenging traditions such as bride and groom attire and everything from wedding size (micro weddings) to trends in sustainability to planning a more experiential event - think experiences and quality over quantity.
One of these trends is changing how couples view their gift registries. Couples are opting to collect for downpayment on houses and honeymoons rather than ask for household items. However, for those who prefer a traditional registry, we've got you covered, too! Find out from previously married couples what they wished they would have registered for, but didn't. This is a very helpful guide for newlyweds to follow.
Chicago Bride considers itself to be the go-to resource guide for planning weddings, so we have articles that answer practical questions and that will be helpful to couples in the planning process. Articles such as "10 Questions to Ask Your Photographer" before you book, tips on how to choose the best hairstyle for you and even, how to choose a ring in "The Four C's of Diamonds" are also included this issue. To take that a step further, we're showing you the top ring trends of the year, including, environmentally friendly engagement rings.
Other helpful articles include what to pack for your honeymoon ("At Last…The Honeymoon: Tips to Help You Get Packing); what's new and sought after for wedding invitations ("You Are Stylishly Invited") and "Unique Gifts for the Bride and Groom" - chocolate pizza, anyone? How about an article from a wedding officiant? Author Christopher Shelley gives some great tips on how to make the serious wedding stuff unique ("Best. Ceremony. Ever.")
What kind of questions should you ask your bridal salon? We have thought of all of them so you don't have to. More importantly, be prepared before you go dress shopping so you don't waste time or get sidetracked with what doesn't work by checking out "Find a Gown That Flatters You" to determine what dress style is best for your shape. We haven't forgotten about the groom, either. We offer tips on grooming your groom for the big day in "Grooming Your Groom". Lastly, our Couples Cooking Corner offers recipes for couples to cook together - because as we know, couples that cook together, eat together!
In Every Issue standouts include: our handy Wedding Planner Checklist to keep you organized and on time with the dozens of details required to plan a wedding. And of course, Real Weddings are the highlight of every issue. We give you a peek into several real Chicago weddings complete with attire, venue and vendors.
We at Chicago Bride know that one must be a well-educated consumer, especially when planning a high-cost event like a wedding. That's why more than any other bridal magazine, we provide our brides and grooms with more practical, informative and useful articles to allow them to make the best-informed decisions before spending large sums of money on their wedding. That is why we are considered the top bridal resource guide in Chicago and locally owned.
