Last year's Winter Bridal Show was also featured on WISH-TV's Indy Style! Special Sections Editor Laura Kruty talks about trends here, Kimberly from the Bridal Superstore by Posie Patch, Indiana's Largest Bridal selection, previews the latest bridal looks here, and Reis-Nichols Jewelers, dishes about the hottest gems in the industry here.


Indiana Bride is published twice a year, in January and August. A flipbook of the latest issue appears above.

With four distinct seasons, there's no denying that Indiana offers couples unique settings in which to tie the knot. So whether you opt for spring, summer, fall, or winter, local wedding professionals offer their takes on giving your nuptials a seasonal twist—on everything from gowns to food to hair and makeup and more.

Of course no matter the month, you're going to need a gown. And a bouquet. And the groom will need a tux and a boutonniere and a wedding band. Find inspiration for those and other wedding musts starting on page 6.

Then there's the venue. It's probably one of the first things to decide upon. To aid in your search, we provide details on 100 Central Indiana spots, such as country clubs, hotels, barns, gardens, and attractions. No matter your tastes—and no matter the season—you're sure to find the perfect space in which to celebrate with your loved ones on your special day.


On January 19, 2014, brides-to-be and their guests stepped into the most luxurious bridal event of the new year, filled with decadent hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and over 70 magnificent exhibits filling the ballroom of the Ritz Charles venue.
