We are so excited to present the Fall/Winter 2021 edition. Inside this gorgeous issue, get swept away by the romance of 20 remarkable Real Weddings — including four bonus online weddings you can access with a quick scan of your phone. From over-the-top florals and soft femininity to boho vibes and moody themes, there’s something for everyone to be inspired by.

One of the most exciting things about our new issue is the influencer style spotlight. We teamed up with four local Instagram stars—Kyla Soden, Bailey Moses Barger, Jasmine Bruce and Turner Grace Edwards (our covergirl)—to show off their bridal style in wedding dresses and fine jewelry from vendors around the state. From try-ons in the stores to on-set posing, these beautiful women rocked it in gorgeous gowns and delighted our Instagram following.

This issue, we also featured more styled shoots than ever before, creative tablescapes, a runway report, our tried-and-true list of wedding vendors we love and awesome photographers. We had fun shooting posh paper from The Social Type and a creative cocktail from Gina’s Catering and O’Looney’s — as well as stunning statement rings from Lauray’s — The Diamond Center.

Another reason we’re particularly fond of this issue is that it marks our 30th anniversary. Wow, right?! In 1991, Arkansas Bride debuted as the state’s premier guide to planning a wedding. What a journey it has been. I have loved being part of the Arkansas Bride story for 12 years, and have enjoyed watching the styles and trends change so much over that time. I am looking forward to seeing your work continue to evolve with the times and feature it inside our magazine!

Cheers to 30 years and to your upcoming weddings!

Yours truly,

Lindsay Irvin
