From the editor

Claire Muffett-Reece, Editor

A warm welcome

Hello from your new editor! If you read our January/February issue you’ll know Demelza has since moved on to pasture’s new – we miss her terribly and wish her all the best!

This is my first venture into the trade side of the wedding world, as I was the editor of one of our consumer bridal titles for just shy of three years.

I have to admit I was daunted at first, but now I’ve found my feet I’m loving my new role! I can honestly say the emails and phone calls I’ve received welcoming me has been overwhelming – you bridal lot are a lovely bunch and I can’t wait to meet you at all the 2020 shows.

Speaking of exhibitions, in our latest March/April issue we’ve got nine pages dedicated to the places to see and be seen over the next few months – think London Bridal Fashion Week, White Gallery, Interbride and Valmont Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week.

I’ve also been busy catching up with bridal designers worldwide, from Israel’s Galia Lahav to the UK’s Suzanne Neville and Paul Zeni Bridal.

And let’s not forget our super retailers, including an exclusive chat with TWIA retailer of the year Bellissima Weddings

I hope you enjoy my first issue – please do be sure to contact me with any feedback on how you think I’m doing!

It's just two weeks until Easter Monday, so if you haven't thought about getting eggs-cited about your window display then it's high time you got things sorted! I asked Helen Goodwin from Made You Look Made You Stare for her essential advice… "I like the thought of soft, sugary pastels for your colour scheme – think bridesmaid dresses alongside spring flowers, ribbons and lights, with a few sugared eggs or almonds too. You could even go down the spring greenery vibe with gorgeous vibrant daffodils. Just imagine how your bride might be visualising their spring wedding day and represent that scene in your window and interior displays."
