Are y’all ready? Sweet V9 hits newsstands in less than four weeks and we’re planning to pour big glasses of sweet tea and toss the confetti. We’re also thrilled to formally and officially invite you to the Southern Weddings V9 Launch Party!!

We’ll be celebrating the launch of our new issue at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, NC on November 10, starting at 7:00 P.M. There will be toe-tapping music, sweets a plenty, snacks inspired by our latest issue, and a few more surprises inspired by our cover that our all-new for this year! But as always, there will be lots of fun swag, a fantastic photo booth, and some of the sweetest folks in Dixie. Rumor has it the Duke/Carolina football game will also be streaming live for the Tar Heel and Blue Devil fans in the house!

The party is open to everyone, but you MUST RSVP and purchase a ticket ahead of time in order to attend. Our last four launch parties (see them here, here, here and here!) have sold out quickly, and we know this one will too, so if you want to join us, please pick up a ticket ASAP!

We like to get a little fancy, so don’t be afraid to wear your Sunday best! In celebration of V9’s cover (which we’ll be revealing really soon!), we invite you to come dressed in your finest light blues, whites, and creams (with a peach accent if you so choose!). Good news for both our gals and guys in the fashion department:

— Our friends at Parlor Blow Dry Bar are opening their doors to any gals looking for a little Southern glam support. You can hop over to any Raleigh-area location and use the code SOUTHERNWEDDINGS for a 10% discount on all products and services the day of the party! You might just see the SW gals at the new Cary location :)
— Any gent looking for a spiffy new bow tie for the party can grab one from High Cotton Ties (may we recommend the SW collection?). Use code V9LAUNCHPARTY for 25% off.

We’re honored that we get the chance to celebrate another love-story filled issue with y’all. We can’t wait to see you in a few short weeks to toast nine wonderful years of Southern goodness!!

P.S. If you are one of our many friends traveling in from out of town, there are plenty of options in the area, including the lovely accommodations at The Carolina Inn. We’d also recommend checking The Franklin Hotel and the Aloft Chapel Hill, both of which are nearby.

P.P.S. Can’t make it to the party? We will be broadcasting live that night! Tune in over on our Facebook page for our welcome and speeches around 8:15 P.M. EST.

    I won’t be there, but at a friend’s wedding who as an engagement gift I gave a copy of v.8 and she used as part of her wedding inspiration! :) Have fun and can’t wait for v.9 to come out for a gift for one of my besties who just got engaged this past weekend!

    One day, I say one day I’ll come to the launch party. I literally Googled mapped where it is and it’s over 5 hours away from where I live, near Atlanta. I’m sure it will be lots and loads of fun!!!!

    […] Weddings announced the details of their V9 Launch Party yesterday and I spent about an hour trying to find a financially feasible way to visit North […]

Happy Friday, belles! Since we just flipped the calendar page again (hello, May!) and Lisa and I have been hard at work with our team of stylists and vendors making Volume 9 magic happen, we thought it was time for a little #MakingSouthernWeddings update here on the blog! We have two editorial shoots under our belts (hooray!), two coming up this month, two in June, and one that is yet to be scheduled – but will likely end up being in June, too! We’ve actually already gotten the photos back from our first shoot, and let’s just say, there were some dancing lady and heart eye emoji texts involved amongst our team. We can’t wait for you to see!! But in the meantime, here’s what we can share…

Our first editorial was staged in sunny Florida. We had the help of two long-time Blue Ribbon Vendors, Ashton Events and Justin DeMutiis, and since I was out on maternity leave, Lisa also had Marissa by her side! (That’s her wearing one of our cute shoot aprons from Oatmeal Lace, above.) This shoot was bright and colorful, with just a hint of gold and citrus :)

Our second editorial took place at the Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta. Yeah, we couldn’t stop staring at that ceiling, either! We were thrilled to take on an indoors shoot – something a little different for us – and hope y’all will love having some ballroom inspiration in our next issue! Of course, peonies arranged by Blue Ribbon Vendor Jacin Fitzgerald, an epic tulle wedding gown, and photos by Sawyer Baird don’t hurt, either. I was back from maternity leave for this one, and it was extra fun to have my little girl and my Mom in tow for the day! But don’t get me started on Atlanta traffic… yeesh!

As always, follow along on Instagram and Snapchat for more Southern Weddings V9 action as it unfolds! You can find everything on our account, @SouthernWeddings, and the #SouthernWeddingsV9 and #MakingSouthernWeddings hashtags. And don’t forget: we will be reviewing real weddings for Volume 9 through August, so send them our way! We can’t WAIT to see your big days!! You can find our submission guidelines here.

P.S. Interested in being a Volume 9 sponsor? There’s still time, and we would love to have you! In fact, we’re running a special deal until May 9, so hop like a bunny and email Marissa!
