Real Simple Wedding Issue

So the Real Simple Wedding Issue is out at Crate and Barrel’s everywhere and online…to be honest, its not exactly what I was expecting [I think I was looking for a lot of DIY ideas], but a great resource nonetheless. Whats done really well are the checklists, and it answers questions in an easy to understand format. The online version includes some things not in the magazine, like creating bouquets out of grocery store flowers, or hair and makeup styles for your wedding [these are especially good because they show the hairstyles from all directions].

Real Simple also has a bridal blog going by one of the online editors, Margit, for her own wedding. Looks like it just started so check it out.

    Vane, I’m so glad you posted this. I went to Crate and Barrel this weekend – excited to get the magazine – and was unfortunately disappointed. I agree with you about the lists, I guess I was just hoping that it would be more inspiring, the way Martha’s always are. Hmph. 🙂

    Come now… It was crap. I was upset to have spent 13 bucks on nothing more than 4 bridal magazines worth of advice. NO photos, NO instructions, NO inspiration! What was the use of it aside from checklists you can find EVERYWHERE for 4 dollars.

    Lame, Lame, Real Simple…. Take a cue from Martha…

    Is it coming into bookstores at the end of the month or did I make that up? I’m curious to see it, but I don’t want to order it from Crate and Barrel after hearing how disappointed some people were!
