Just as we had done after 9/11, when the coronavirus pandemic first hit, we began helping our wedding couples and our advertisers. We created a highly praised article on Rescheduling Your Wedding, added a new series of Virtual Planning Guides, and then, for the first time since we began publishing decades ago, began creating an All-Virtual & All-Free issue for our family of advertisers and our brides. They've been calling this level of support ... “Rare (as in Non-Existent)” ... “Absolutely Wonderful” ... “Extremely Helpful” ... “Incredible.” Take a look ...
- THERE FOR OUR ADVERTISERS … “We greatly appreciate all you've done for us over the years.”

Much Appreciated ... “I wanted you to know how much I appreciate the stand you took on the article '‘Rescheduling Your Wedding.’ During these pandemic times, when event spaces are hurting, your article reinforces what we are all trying to do, and that’s work with our brides and help them find a new date.” ...
