A NEW ERA - Spring 2017 Perfect Wedding Magazine PWSpring2017 - Page 8

F ROM THE E DITOR “It is what it is” a dear old friend of mine used to always say, perhaps referring to part of that age-old saying “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” With this taken to heart I embrace a new era for Perfect Wedding Magazine as we cease printing this glorious magazine and turn our attention to providing our product as a 100% online magazine for the consumer end users – our beautiful readers and fans. You shouldn’t think this was an easy decision. I had a very difficult time coming to terms with what needed to be done, but the condition of our world took precedence and for the sake of our children, and their children, we all need to vastly improve our behavior and treatment of Mother Earth if we are to survive. I decided to reduce our carbon footprint impact by eliminating the printing and distribution process completely, and I am happy about it. We are still providing, as an industry leader, up-to-date fashion, style, beauty, décor, weddings and luxury travel content. Our focus on bringing the exceptional and beautiful to you will never waver. Enjoy this publication, share it socially with your friends and family, and contact our advertisers as they too are counting on your support. Happy planning!
