Highlights of Harper’s Bazaar Bride December-January 2017 issue:
Dec-Jan main magazine: A super-fit and super-fabulous Kareena Kapoor Khan graces the cover of the Dec-Jan cruise and holiday special. While she spills the beans on her diet and fitness regime with us, we ask a few other super-fit personalities from the glamour and entertainment industry about their go-to diet, beauty, and fitness regimes. Packed with the best in cruise accessories for 2017, we track a big fashion story with our special on Lebanese couture. The Big Beauty Haul is for the bride-to-be and her girl gang to stay updated on the latest beauty, hair care, and skin care essentials for the season. The Bazaar Men section gives a getaway-centric fashion window to prospective honeymooners and grooms. Last but not least there’s a jewellery update for the fall bride plus the biggest runway looks for getting the traditional Indian bridal look right.
Dec-Jan booklet: Newlyweds Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge grace the cover of the booklet as they share bits and sparkles of their sweet romance with us. The booklet is packed with a curated guide on themed honeymoon destinations and hotels for dreamy honeymooners. It also brings to our readers a fascinating spread of bridal jewellery and couture from the luxury fashion and jewellery powerhouses—labels which had participated in The Couture Wedding Affair, Dubai hosted by Nupur Mehta Puri, editor, Harper’s Bazaar Bride. There’s a fun page as well, which we really enjoyed doing: The team got down to list their dream honeymoon destination!
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.
