It’s that time of year again — UPTOWN has released its 2013 Weddings & Travel issue. From “The Planning Stage” section to “The Big Day,” we have all the details to help you plan a lavish and fun ceremony and reception. Be sure to check out the gowns in “Era of Elegance,” which features old world glamour with a new edge. And even though it’s a big day, everything doesn’t have to be perfect — just peep “Haute Mess,” a collection of wedding day hairstyles that are perfectly imperfect. And since weddings and travel go hand-in-hand, our excursions to St. Lucia, Shanghai, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico will have you salivating for a spring jaunt.
