Dear Readers,

Your wedding day is said to be the most special day of your life, but the days preceding it, when the preparation for the big day are underway, are equally important. Planning your wedding takes months, and while this might be fun and exciting, it can often be quite stressful. There’s so much to look into—the time and date, clothes, jewellery, hair and make-up, food, guest list etc. But one of the most important is the venue! And shortlisting the venue is quite the task, especially if it’s a destination wedding. So if you’re looking for the perfect destination to host your wedding, or the wedding of a close one, take a look at this month’s Feature story where we give a break-down on tips to plan a destination wedding. And the icing on the cake is the special guidelines given by ace wedding planner Vandana Mohan.

Dazzling the cover is the gorgeous Aditi Rao Hydari wearing a Jayanti Reddy Label outfit for the Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.

While talking about royal destinations, the Gwalior Deo Bagh in Madhya Pradesh is definitely worth a glance. The palace is the family home of Uma Raje and Sardar Dhananjay that has been passed down for generations, part of which has now been converted into a charming boutique hotel. It is a perfect spot for travellers who love history and those who want to live like a king. Turn to Sensational Spaces for a peek into the royal abode.

Talking about weddings, beauty and skincare is of utmost importance for any bride. And if she’s a winter bride, it is important to take good care of the skin and hair. Mind & Body has tips for winter brides. Check out Grand Getaways where Evelyn Sharma takes us through her solo trip to Budapest. Filled with marvellous sights, delicious food, and pleasant people, this was one destination she would love to go back to.

In People we have Mumbai-based artist Rouble Nagi and fashion designer Aditi Somani who talk to us about their inspirations and challenges in their line of work.   

Lastly, in Wedding Moments we have snapshots of the big day of Ramya, daughter of former Indian cricketer Chamundeswara Nath Vankina, and Rahul, in Hyderabad.
