Happy New Year to you, our readers! I’m sure that for many of you, the dawn of the new year brings the thrill and excitement that it is now the year of your wedding. Winter will soon turn to spring and before you know it, your wedding day will be here. How incredibly exciting!
As the Editor & Publisher of WedLuxe, I traditionally mark the arrival of a new year with a flurry of tradeshows. This year is no exception. This past weekend, I had the pleasure of personally speaking to over 2000 brides in Vancouver at Canada’s longest running wedding tradeshow: Wedding Fair 2008. We were there distributing complimentary copies of our newest WedLuxe Vancouver/Western Canada title – the Winter/Spring 2008 issue (our third Vancouver issue and our biggest yet).
Countless numbers of you told me directly that WedLuxe was your “favourite wedding magazine” and that you were already anxious for our next issue. Several of you also mentioned that the magazine felt “so European,” and that it was “hard to believe it’s published in Canada.”
Overall, the response continues to exhilarate all of us here at the WedLuxe office. Thank you. We are already hard at work with some incredible ideas for our the next two issues which will be available in June ’08.
I’ve been home in my own bed for two nights and have just two more sleeps left before I head to Toronto for my next tradeshow. I just left Ottawa on Friday where we spent the holidays with my sister and the rest of my family. I only wish WestJet (my favourite airline in Canada) had a frequent flyer program. . . geesh.
That aside, I’m just delighted to be heading to Toronto where we will be giving a complimentary copy of WedLuxe Toronto to each of you that will be attending the ‘haute-est’ wedding show in the city… The Wedding Co Show. This annual must-attend event is designed specifically for a WedLuxe bride. The very best of Toronto’s wedding industry are gathered at the Carlu for a three day wedding-inspired extravaganza. The show is simply outstanding and I personally can’t wait to see what amazing products and professionals are in attendance this year.
