Highlights of Brides Today June-July 2020 issue: The June-July 2020 issue of Brides Today is all about love and nostalgia. And on our covers are celebrities who celebrate both. Actors Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal talk about the milestones in their relationship and their promise to each other as they write heartfelt love letters. Actor Athiya Shetty takes a trip down memory lane into her mother and grandmother’s closet and the things that made her childhood warm and fuzzy. The issue is also packed with content—from the latest trend of all things metallic to a special on polki jewellery, a perennial choice for every young bride. We show you how to get the latest trend of high shine, glitter, and gold makeup. Plus, there is an incredible workout that can be done at home to give you a strong, healthy body. In fashion, we find that lehengas get lighter, cobalt blue is becoming a fast favourite, and western silhouettes are finding an Indian iteration. While it may be a difficult time for the world, we, with this issue, celebrate everything that gives us joy, and the spirit will only continue to grow.
India Today Group, India’s premier media conglomerate with over 42 years of media heritage, announces new beginnings with Brides Today, a luxury wedding magazine, which is an extension of the group’s monopoly over the couture wedding space. The publication is a one-stop shop for brides, grooms, and their families to plan and execute luxe weddings. It offers the same high-end look and feel that readers and brands have come to love over the years with the group’s previous wedding publication. Brides Today will publish 10 issues per year, targeting not only the bride and groom, but the entire bridal brigade and all high-life enthusiasts. The content boasts of luxury weddings, opulent bridal-wear and international lifestyle along with the latest trends in destination events, honeymoon hotspots, spectacular soirées, and more. It promises to make nuptial journeys a fairytale for every bride and groom to-be, as well as all attendees, scoping everything from dream dresses to diamonds, haute couture to décor. Each of the 10 issues will have a central wedding theme, which will bind all the sections together. Depending on the theme of a particular issue, all the sections from fashion to wedding planning, from beauty to jewellery, will talk about bridal fashion, jewellery, destinations and planning tips related to executing that theme. In a nutshell, it will be an A-Z guide on that particular wedding theme. “We are very excited to offer Brides Today, a one-of-its-kind content platform, which eases readers into this important category in India. I am honoured to be entrusted with such an overwhelming legacy and such a luxurious title. Being an India Today Group publication is a proud moment and we hope to provide our readers with the kind of content they want,” said Nupur Mehta Puri, the editor of the magazine. The magazine will be an eclectic mix of modernity and tradition, the complete package for the contemporary couple looking to turn their wedding day dream to reality. The brand also addresses a groom’s needs too, with special features on men’s wear, lifestyle updates, and tips on grooming. All in all, the publication has a celebratory vibe to it, while catering to the booming bridal market in the country.
