‘Tis the season! Engagement season that is. The majority of proposals take place from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day, so chances are you’re getting ready to start planning your wedding. And what better location could you ask for than New York City? First things first, check out our handy checklist (page 10) on how to pick the right vendors to bring your vision to life. We cannot stress enough how important it is to find a team that is the right fit for you, especially if you're hiring a wedding planner. Next up, your registry! Gone are the days that limited you to tabletop pieces and appliances. Today’s modern wedding registry can include anything from turntables to travel accessories. See our picks for todie-for registry items and where to find them in The Mostest (page 11). Once you’ve picked a date and booked the venue it’s time to shop for your gown. You should start shopping for your wedding dress a year to nine months before your wedding, and order it no less than six months prior. We can’t get enough of the biggest trend for 2017: sleeves! From sheer and sexy to tailored and preppy, we have all the variations of the new sleeved look and where to find them (page 45). Not sure what details to include in your ceremony and reception? This issue is chockfull of creative ideas for your flowers (see some stunning centerpieces inspired by venues on page 27), monogrammed invitations in traditional, modern and whimsical designs on page 21, and delicious menu ideas (page 86) from Cobblestone Catering’s Jeremy Wachalter. And finally, if you’re not sure what type of event you want to have we featured three tri-state area weddings to inspire you, whether you’re looking to get married in a modern city space, a relaxed countryside wedding in the Hudson River Valley, or a seaside celebration out east in Quogue. Cheers to New York and 2017!
