On another note, this is my last issue after over 31 years at Bridal Guide magazine and more than 25 years as Editor in Chief. It has been a privilege to have been at the helm of Bridal Guide’s editorial content and to have worked with so many talented editors and co-workers. I have also enjoyed working with the many wonderful designers and bridal industry leaders throughout the years. I retire knowing that several generations of brides and grooms looked to Bridal Guide for inspiration and advice and that future generations will continue to do so. Bridal Guide’s Executive Editor, Mary Clarke, will be stepping in as Editor in Chief — a well-deserved recognition of Mary’s talent, knowledge and contributions. All the best, Mary!
It has been an honor to be part of an industry that celebrates love. And I wish all of you a beautiful wedding day filled with love and joy…and a lifetime of happiness!
Warmest wishes always,
