It looks amazing! I missed the Southern Living Weddings issues when they went out of print!!! I used to work in consumer marketing at SPC and I would go in our closet and look at back issues of SLW! Ah the good old days!!:) This also will be so helpful! Can't wait to win (ha) or buy a copy and give one to a best friend of mine who is getting married next April!
