FROM THE EDITOR It’s all about inspiration. Planning your special day begins with inspired ideas and evolves into taking care of each and every detail in a unique and creative way. We aim to be the source for those a-ha moments, wowing you with a ﬂoral bouquet that’s unlike any you’ve seen, or a dress that has just the stylish shape you had in mind. That’s the reason we pack the pages of every issue with the latest looks in invitations, cakes, ﬂowers, dresses, jewelry and more, plus show examples of how other brides created their dream day and what suggestions they have to pass along. And now, we’re pleased to offer you even more inspiration on a daily basis with the Weddings in Arkansas blog and our enhanced digital edition. You’ll ﬁnd both at www.weddingsinarkansas.com, allowing you to: t4FFSFBMXFEEJOHT QSPKFDUJEFBT UIFMBUFTUDPMPSQBMFUUFTBOE NVDINPSFWJBEBJMZCMPHVQEBUFT t'MJQUISPVHIUIFQBHFTPGPVSEJHJUBMFEJUJPO PGGFSJOHFYUSB GFBUVSFTOPUTFFOPOPVSQSJOUFEQBHFT t1FSVTFXFEEJOHSFTPVSDFTBOEBDDFTTUIFNEJSFDUMZUISPVHI MJOLT t4IBSFJEFBTFBTJMZXJUIGBNJMZBOEGSJFOET Join us online and let the idea sharing begin!
