Brighter Days Are Here
Newly engaged couples, we welcome you to this magical chapter of your life, and to the world of wedding planning—sometimes stressful, sometimes exciting, but always an adventure. As we were putting this issue together, a little over a year into a pandemic that altered our lives, we turned a corner, and can now glimpse a return to normal. While some of you may have gotten betrothed in a not-too-distant era of uncertainty, we can look to a future that once again promises the celebration of your dreams. In this issue, we’ve got what you need to kick-start your vision board. You’ll not only find reimagined historic venues, heavenly cakes, and the freshest floral trends, but we’re also thrilled to present the Minnesota Bride Best of 2021 winners. People just like you have voted for these tried-and-true vendors, so you can feel confident this is a trustworthy resource you can turn to again and again. The brighter days you’ve been waiting for are finally here, dear reader, so enjoy your planning to the fullest, and cheers to your big day!
