CONTENTS editor’s letter
We’re very excited this month at My Waterford having thrown ourselves into an 18-page wedding special. Having just been through the wedding process myself, I know how tough but yet enjoyable it can be. So we are here to make life a little easier and give you the knowledge and services you need to create the perfect wedding day.
We had a fantastic day in the sun at Faithlegg House Hotel for our cover shoot and of course spent most of our time oohing and aahing over the stunning dresses from My Dress Bridal Boutique (and the male model wasn’t a bad sight either!).
But it’s not just about weddings this month, we also have all our regular features, interiors, fi lm reviews, health, games and gadgets, gardening and our hugely popular GIY column.
We’ve got some mouth-watering recipes for you and also read about some of the fantastic restaurants around Waterford.
There are competitions too, with Make-Up Waterford and Mulligans giving away teeth-whitening and a trip to the cinema also on offer.
So sit back, relax and enjoy.
