Get excited, brides-to-be: The Summer/Fall 2015 issue of Columbus Bride is out this weekend! It's jam-packed with real wedding photos, advice from the pros and more to make sure your wedding day is a memorable one. Some issue highlights:

*We photographed gowns from IVY Bridal Studio (pictured above) at the Short North's newest hotel, Le Meridien Columbus, The Joseph, against beautiful works of art. The results? Stunning.

*Don't forget that your cake can be a work of art itself. We sought the help from Jan Kish of La Petite Fleur, Sauer Cakes, Capital City Cakes and The Angry Baker, who created wedding cakes based on famous masterpieces. They're almost too pretty to eat, but I guarantee your mouth will be watering!

*Looking for a non-traditional bridesmaid dress for your gal pals? We sought out fresh styles from local boutiques that are bridesmaid friendly but can totally be worn over and over again.

Grab your copy at area Barnes & Noble stores, and find more information over the coming weeks on our website, ColumbusBride.com. Enjoy!
