Wedding planning, much like marriage — and life in general — requires vision, organization, budgeting, compromise, positivity, love and a sense of humor.

Marriage is a big step — a step that I took last year, down the aisle of the Stowe Community Church, on a beautiful sunny day in June. All the worries after months of planning faded away as we stood there, wrapped in the love of our families and friends, and said “I do.”

Lizzie Post, great-great-granddaughter of etiquette maven Emily Post, says a wedding is about doing what you need to do to feel married on that day. Every couple is different, and there’s no one-size-fits-all formula for the perfect wedding, but we think Vermont is a great place to begin.

No matter what step you’re at in your wedding planning, even if it’s still a daydream, there’s something for everyone in this magazine. From frequently asked guest etiquette questions to the legal nitty-gritty, choosing your perfect posse and expressing your love through sound of music, we’ve gathered information and inspiration throughout central Vermont to help turn your wedding dreams into the best day ever.
