General Inspiration

From The Editor: Dreams Can Come True

Cool-weather weddings are magical, romantic, and provide the perfect backdrop for cozy memories. The season is filled with rich and sumptuous colours, roaring log fires, and hopefully a sprinkling of snow. What more could a winter bride-to-be ask for?

In this issue of Ottawa Wedding Magazine, you’ll discover so many ways to create an event that is simply “you.” Invitations are the first impression. Charm your guests with satin ribbons and romantic hues—the starting point for your event needs to say it all.

Our fashion department features this season’s hottest bridal trends. From high slits and detachable skirts to off-the-shoulder and fluttery sleeves, we’ve got your ultimate fashion fix. We’re also talking accessories and featuring statement pieces that are oh-so-you.

Winter evenings are perfect for twinkling lights, candles, and outdoor lanterns made of ice. The night sky and bright lights can make outstanding images for you to look back on for years to come.
