Bridal Guide 2018
A labor of love
Hello and welcome to our annual Bridal Guide. I love this guide—because I’m really just a sucker for love. And 2017 was a year for it. Here at the RN&R, we were thrilled back in November to learn of the engagement of our sales manager, Emily Litt, to local metal god Mark Moots. And in December, the paper’s editor, Brad Bynum, and his fiancée, Margot Choltco, celebrated the birth of their son, Clyde. But enough about that. Let’s talk about what’s in this guide.
It’s been more than two years now since marriage equality was realized for all of this country’s citizens. Still, a lot of wedding traditions are geared toward straight couples, and this got writer Shaun Hunter wondering which traditions same-sex couples choose to embrace. You can find his story on page 6. And, over on page 3, you’ll find a story from contributor Matt Bieker about the art of writing a good best man’s speech. We also have a story in this year’s guide that’s a little unorthodox. On page 8, you can read Josie Glassberg’s piece on the reasons it may be a good idea to discuss divorce before ever getting married. A bridal checklist is on page 11. Also, check out the cover. That’s local couple Jennifer and Dave Masud. The photo was taken by RN&R contributor Eric Marks.
