Introducing the V7 Cover!!

by in In The Office, News on

Friends! It is with the fullest heart and incredible joy that we introduce to you… the Southern Weddings V7 cover!!!

She charms the dew right off the honeysuckle, doesn’t she??

As we put together this issue, we kept circling back to a few central ideas. We wanted to celebrate the community that surrounds a bride on the way to her wedding day. We wanted to honor best friends, who do so much to get us down the aisle. And we wanted to empower our couples to be confident as they make decisions throughout their engagement, secure in the knowledge that their wedding is only the beginning, and that they can write the story of their life together, no matter what has come before.

Speaking of writing your own story… we couldn’t be more tickled pink about the fact that our cover photographer, Tec Petaja, was none other than the groom on our very first cover, V1!! Tec and his sweet wife Chelsea have always been an important part of the Southern Weddings family, and it’s so meaningful to us to be able to work with them on a cover. As many of you know, the SW story has added so many chapters since that first issue, and this feels like a beautiful full-circle moment.

We had the joy of working with many other talented folks to bring this image to life, including Rhiannon from Hey Gorgeous Events, who graced us with her floral and styling skills. Kate Bryan of The Small Things blog curled our gorgeous ladies’ locks while Makeup for Your Day gave them peachy cheeks and rosy lips. We couldn’t be more proud to have our bride in the dress of a Southern designer (Anne Barge!) or to shoot on location at one of our favorite places, Fearrington Village.

The results of the fun cover poll our newsletter subscribers took – if you’re not signed up yet, do so now!

And of course, one of the most exciting things about this cover is that it features one of our very own gals – yes, that’s Miss Lisa to the left of our bride!! You may recognize the face all the way to the left, as well – Whitney, recently married, was one of our famous bridesmaids for the polo shoot a few years back!

Though our official release day is Tuesday, if last year is any indication, V7 may be popping up on newsstands around the South as early as today–yeehaw!! Be sure to snap a pic of yourself with your copy and tag #SWV7 on instagram or Twitter – we LOVE seeing your smiling faces!! If you live outside the South, you can always find a copy in our store.

In the meantime, we’re DYING to know: What do y’all think??? Are you as much in love with V7′s cover as we are?

    The best thing about being married is having your best friend always by your side. I love seeing his smiling face everyday after work, it makes going home so much better!

    I think my comment got eaten so I’m trying again!

    My husband and I dated long distance for almost 5 years before we got married 2 years ago so my favorite thing about being married is all the time we get to spend together now! Since most of our dating was spent rushing around weekends trying to fit a month’s worth of activities into two days, we now look forward to any weekend that has zero plans and use that time to create a blanket nest on the couch.

  3. avatar Jillian reply

    My favorite thing about being married is having a partner, to help you, hug you and be there for you whenever you need it. My second favorite, a close runner up, is a having a lifelong sleepover with your favorite person.

    The absolute best thing about being married is having an accountability partner in my walk with Jesus Christ. My husband keeps me grounded, and helps me to remember to always keep God first in every aspect of life. He’s also pretty cute to look at!

  5. avatar Whitney M reply

    Knowing that I always have someone in my corner & on my side (: No matter if my hair is a mess or I completely burn a casserole, he’s right there waiting with a hug & kiss. He truly embodies what “extending grace” means, & it’s one of my favorite things about having a husband!

  6. avatar Lauren P reply

    It’s been surprisingly fun to have the same last name. Newly monogrammed things aside :).. When you’re dating you don’t think how it will feel for people to refer to you as mrs-his-name. There’s something about it that feels so fun and special and permanent, connecting you to generations before you and beginning your own little family of two.

  7. avatar Amy Salo reply

    My favorite part of marriage is getting to start and end each day with my best friend. It’s the fact that his home is my home, too.

  8. avatar Lauren P reply

    I was surprised by how much I love sharing a last name. There’s something so sweet and special about being Mrs-his-name. You feel connected to generations before and that somehow it makes your little family of two official.

  9. avatar Lesley Tapley reply

    The best part about being married is having a partner to experience every walk of life with; the highs, the lows, and everything in between.

  10. avatar Melissa P. reply

    My favorite thing about being married is having someone who makes me want to be the best version of myself. Even after almost 9 years, he still constantly encourages me to be successful, loves me like I’m the most deserving person in the world- even when most times I feel far from deserving.

  11. avatar Lacey Rabalais reply

    There’s so many things I love about being married. Besides having someone to take out the trash and kill bugs, it’s wonderful to have a partner in life. Someone to enjoy the big moments along with the little ones. Someone to cheer you on and lift you up. Someone to keep you in check when you’re getting a little crazy. Someone to just truly love you and for you to love back.

  12. avatar Juliana Spivey reply

    I am the luckiest girl in the world simply because I got to marry the man of my dreams. As I’ve grown older, I have had many goals + aspirations added to my “bucket list”, but now I realize that my husband, Clayton, entirely encompasses it. He is my bucket list. He is my glass half-full, if not overflowing, and he makes me a better person because of that. He makes me laugh, he comforts me when I cry, he takes my breath away, & still makes my heart skip a beat. He captured my heart and I gladly threw away the key, and I am beyond blessed to have gained a partner who will walk with me by my side, hand in hand, to wherever our journey leads us.

  13. avatar Meredith Shanks reply

    My favorite thing about married is doing life with my best friend. Whether it’s praying before we go to sleep or making chocolate chip pancakes on a Saturday morning, I love making memories with him.

  14. avatar Jennifer M reply

    My favorite things about being married are Friday date nights, daily runs outside…even though I get passed because I’m much slower ;), traveling to new and exciting places, long chats over coffee on Saturday mornings, nighttime snuggles and best of all…knowing my husband and I are living “OUR” dream together!!

  15. avatar Bryson Kessler reply

    I met my husband in college. My mother passed away the year prior to breast cancer. I knew, when I met my husband, that he was the one – instantly. He felt the same thing. Because I was still dealing with the loss of my mother, I was not emotionally ready for the relationship. I moved to a different college and we both moved forward with our lives. After 15 years and failed marriages, we were randomly reunited. We have now been married for three years. My favorite part of my marriage is knowing each day that, although the path has been broken and painful, by grace, I was given a second chance to walk through my crazy, joyful, flawed and completely beautiful life with my best friend and love of my life!

  16. avatar Jamie Leakey reply

    My favorite thing about marriage is creating and establishing family traditions with my husband! I live for sweet memories and it has been so much fun to share them with my best friend!

  17. avatar Stacy W. reply

    To put it simply, I get to see my favorite person in the entire world every single day. What’s better than that?

  18. avatar Leanne Woodward reply

    My favorite part of being married is continuously learning from each other and growing with each other. We each have our own passions, but are always willing to share those interests with each other. My husband taught me to fish, golf and shoot; I shared my passion for running, yoga and cooking. We love the opportunity to engage in these interests with each other!

  19. avatar Tanya P reply

    There are so many! But my favorite part is falling asleep wrapped in each other’s arms and waking up to sweet, good morning kisses. We’ve been married for 5 years now, and it’s still something we look forward to all day and can’t wait to get home for!

  20. avatar Mandy Volpe reply

    My favorite thing about being married is that he knows me better than I know myself and shows that to me with little gestures of surprises. That moment when he comes home from work with a lemonade in hand because he knows I had a rough day is truly the sweet spot of marriage!

  21. avatar Laura Kittrell reply

    The best thing about being married is never having to say goodbye at the end of the night! I remember hating that when we were dating, and now we don’t have to! I love doing life with my very best friend. He see’s me at my best and worst, and I love that at the end of a hard day or argument he will lean over and say, “You know there is no one that I would rather do this with….right?” For better or worse.

  22. avatar Haley M; Raleigh, NC reply

    The little moments are my favorite part of marriage; fits of laughter, morning coffee, silly dancing, and evening strolls with our dog.

    My husband and I have been married for 3 months and I am a brand new military wife. I still get butterflies when he walks in our door is his uniform. I love hearing him introduce me as his wife, I don’t think that will ever get old. I love knowing that in all of the ups and downs of life, we get to go through them together.

    My favorite thing about being married is two-fold. It’s the pride I feel when I call him my husband and the comfort I feel knowing that I have a companion for life with whom I love more and more every day.

  26. avatar Sally Maxwell reply

    Laughing everyday like I’m in high-school. My husband is mature and serious and but has always made me laugh with a good sense of humour, however it wasn’t until we were married that I saw his real silly side. He is a creative (graphic designer) so he’s forever making up silly but creative on-the-spot songs depending on what I’m doing (like making sandwiches) and turns an otherwise menial moment into hilarity. I love that he tries to make me laugh and loves to see me happy! How nice that it’s someone’s goal each day just to see you happy and laughing.

    I feel like my favorite thing about being married should somehow sound more glamorous. We have been married for 6 years and anytime anyone asks me about marrital advice I tell them you have to want to be married just as much as you want the person. It’s not enough to love the person next to you, you have to love being yolked to them. That is my very favorite thing – that i am connected to my spouse. He makes my burdens lighter, my happiness more happy and my sorrows less cumbersome. He pulls with me everyday. I love how the Savior said, take my yolk upon you…and he shall find rest unto your soul. I think it’s the perfect model for marriage. Commit to one another and pull with all your might through this life. I love that my husband is my dear companion through the good and rough terrain of this life. And that we are not just in love with each other, but in love with being yolked together.

  29. avatar Carolyn G. reply

    My favorite part of being married is witnessing the vulnerable moments, the things that don’t happen around anyone but me, knowing that my husband trusts me enough to be himself without concern for judgement.

    I would love it if you would like to include my quote!

    On a serious note, I love having a teammate. We have such a baby marriage, but it is already the sweetest thing to have a partner to walk through life with.

    On a less serious note? Well, my husband is a fantastic cook, and it’s his turn in the kitchen every Tuesday. So…Tuesday evenings are one of my favorite parts of marriage ;)

    There are so many great things about being married, but my favorite is that I get to start and end each day with my best friend. However, there are simple pleasures about marriage that bring a smile to my face – I love getting my mail and seeing his last name behind my first, and I love sending Christmas Cards from our family to others. I think marriage is about the simple things in life, and just knowing that I get to share my everything with him brings me the greatest joy!

  32. avatar Kati C. reply

    My favorite part of being married is cooking dinner for my hubby each night. Like many Southern women I show love through food, and it makes me so happy to make his favorite dishes and watch him clean his plate!

  33. avatar Marilisa reply

    My favorite thing about being married is having a “forever” date to all of life’s events and adventures! Whether it’s going to weddings, dinners, movies, concerts, work events- you name it- I love that even though we’re married, he’s always my date :)

    Our favorite part of being married is the amazing sense of comfort we find in our relationship. When our lives outside of our relationship get chaotic and stressful we know that our stability at home will carry us through. While we have many things in our lives to question, we never question our relationship.

  36. avatar Tiffany H. reply

    My favorite thing about being married is knowing that – as happy and full of love as our lives are now- the best is yet to come!

We’ve completed our last photo shoot, Nicole and Morgan are hard at work on layout, and we’re dusting off our SWPS uniforms. That can only mean one thing: it’s time to open V7 preorders! Yeehaw!!

Southern Weddings V7 will debut on newsstands around the country on Tuesday, November 4 (election day — easy to remember!). For those of you who are new to the game and wondering what this pre-order business is all about, here’s how it works: SW is distributed in Target, Walmart, Barnes & Noble, Walgreens, and a whole heap of grocery stores including the one and only Piggly Wiggly. However, we’re not in every store in every chain in every town (yet!), and depending on where you live, it might be tough to find a copy (especially because uber fans have been known to buy out a store’s whole stock in one fell swoop!).

If you want to save yourself the hassle and make sure you have your copy as soon as possible, place your pre-order today and come November, your copy will be sitting pretty on your doorstep! Plus, old hands know copies from our office come with a few extra-special surprises :)

We’ve been sharing lots of behind the scenes details on instagram all summer! Check the hashtag #MakingSouthernWeddings for all the fun!

V7 is packed chockfull of all the Southern wedding goodness you’ve come to know and love. In addition to editorials from Tec Petaja, KT Merry, Ryan Ray, Ali Harper, Stefanie Miles, Nancy Ray, Hey Gorgeous Events, Landon Jacob, Blue-Eyed Yonder, and Jessica Lorren, among MANY other talented folks, we are bouncing up and down in excitement that we’ll be sharing SEVENTEEN real weddings in this issue!! That’s 50% more than last year, and each one is downright incredible! You will not want to miss these beauties.

Last year we personally shipped around 750 copies from our humble office in the first few days of V6′s release, and we expect to top that number this year! Craziness, y’all!!

To add to the madness and make sure you have a copy in hand the minute V7 is available, just click here! Remember, even though you’ll pay now, your order won’t be shipped until November! If you order a magazine combo or any other item with your V7 pre-order, please note that your entire order will ship in November, though normal shop orders will continue shipping as usual!

A few other exciting items of note:

1. We have VERY FEW ad spots remaining in V7! If you’re interested, be sure to email Marissa lickety-split, as we know these will fly.
2. Changes to the Collection! Now that we’ve sold out of V4, Collections include one copy each of V5, V6, and V7, and at a slight discount to boot.

Any questions, let us know! We are crazy, hoppin’ excited over here, y’all!! We can’t wait to share all the goodness we’ve been working on!
