A year of no gatherings, and therefore, no weddings got us thinking: What would our celebrations look like when they return? Now that things are opening up again, we have our answer. It seems they're joyful—and infinitely more personalized. Guest experience is paramount, rules are being broken, and getting dressed for the aisle is that much more fun and free of expectations. Ahead, we've assembled the BAZAAR Bride take on this year and next year's weddings—from the best planning advice to must-have fashion, registry, beauty, and more. We hope you feel inspired to plan a safe, chic, happy, thoughtful event that you'll never forget. Welcome to the issue.

BAZAAR BRIDE PRESENTS:
By Invitation Only
Vera Wang on Fashion
“So much of my brand is about my relationship with women. Certainly when you dress them on their wedding day, that’s one of the biggest responsibilities and connections you have to make.”
Putnam & Putnam on Floral Design
“A specific flower isn't going to make or break your wedding, it’s really about how it’s all put together.”
John Dolan on Photography
“The photographs should be about the wedding. The wedding shouldn’t be about the photography.”
This is the time for bold choices, subtle tones, and romantic pastels—ahead, the wedding color schemes you won’t find on Pinterest.
