Fall 2016 Issue on Stands Now!Words by Courtney Kellar
Whether you’re recently engaged, researching honeymoon locations or looking to rekindle the flame of love with a romantic trip, Destination I Do’s Fall 2016 issue might just be an indispensible resource. Our roving editors and contributing writers set foot on four continents to create well-rounded recommendations. We’re also exploring alternative options for the betrothed or long-time lovers. Our Ask the Expert department focuses on the “Art of Eloping,” while our Adventures in Etiquette department focuses on “The Etiquette of Exclusion.” Learn how to be different without being disrespectful when making out-of-the-box decisions. For a “Dream Vow Renewal in Los Cabos,” check out our Guest Book.
Our Fall 2016 cover features one of our Real-Life Wedding brides. She and her dapper groom said “I do” with a destination wedding on the shores of Big Sur. Our bride is lovely and on-trend with a keyhole-back gown from Stardust Celebrations, minimalist floral crown and blooming bouquet both by Natalie Bowen Designs. Event planning and design by Alison Events Planning + Design. The talented Feather & Twine Photography captured this beautiful photo and sentimental moment. To discover Mary and Tyler’s entire Big Sur, California Real-Life Wedding feature, see pg. 106.
Our job at Destination I Do is not only to provide our couples with helpful and inspirational content, but to foster a feeling of love and adventure. We hope we’ve done just that with our Pick Your Passion feature. With your loved ones boarding flights or enduring family road trips to make it to your nuptials, the pressure is on to pick a destination they will enjoy. To aide in your quest, we’ve rounded up five destinations that each have a particular passion in mind. Explore “glamping” in Montana, wine country in Oregon, a golf haven in Georgia, beaches, brew and high-end history in Florida and bayside fun in Texas. With our Honeymoon Hideaways department, we encourage you to think outside the box with adventurous recommendations like China and Peru.
New to the party is our Marry Here, Honeymoon There feature, which outlines the best ways to say “I do” in Germany and honeymoon in Italy. Sit-up and take notice of our style-inducing Fashion Forward departments with a “Wildly Refined” shoot in California and “A Taste of the Tropics” in Maui. The Honeymoonist is also back with a range of recommendations for couples looking to spend their post-nuptials respite in Nicaragua.
Last, but certainly not least, we bring you a sneak-peek of our reader-favorite Real-Life Weddings. Get your Pinterest pointer finger ready with inspirational events like a chic soiree in Maui, a colorful fiesta in Colombia, a cultural sensation in Wyoming, heartfelt nuptials in Cabo San Lucas, a long-awaited elopement in La Jolla, earthy elegance in Big Sur and destination-inspired details in Mykonos.
Of course, this is just a sampling of what you’ll find between the glossy covers of our Fall 2016 issue. To get the whole scoop, be sure to pick up a copy at your local Barnes & Noble, Target, Safeway, some of the U.S.'s major airports and select newsstands. Can't wait?
