The Knot Fall 2020 magazine focuses on a topic that's captured the attention of the entire country: the Black Lives Matter movement. The cover story features bestselling author, activist and Project Runway judge Elaine Welteroth's stoop wedding to musician Jonathan Singletary. In an exclusive interview with The Knot, they shared the story of their wedding amid COVID-19—and the fear they experienced that day because of racism that has long plagued the US. They also share how important it is to center Black Life and Black Love now and forever.
The issue also covers other topics, like how to celebrate your original wedding date if your wedding has been postponed due to COVID and the much-anticipated, annual The Knot Beauty Awards. Plus, the issue features exclusive details from Pitch Perfect star Brittany Snow's wedding to Tyler Stanaland. Every step of the way, The Knot is here to help you plan your wedding your way. Take a look at some of our favorite stories in this season's magazine, below.
Love Is Not Cancelled
As coronavirus continues to sweep the nation, many couples have either postponed their weddings or they've found creative ways to celebrate their original date. In this section, we round up all the inspiration and advice you need to honor the original wedding date in a special way. Due to social distancing measures and precautions, many couples have opted to elope or host intimate ceremonies (also known as the "minimony"). We spoke to several couples about how they planned their celebration and what it meant to them. If you don't feel comfortable hosting an in-person celebration, we also have tips on how to throw a virtual ceremony or shower. Plus, we have dress shopping tips, as well as real data indicating what couples are planning to do in the future. Even in a pandemic, love is not cancelled. We're here for you—you are not alone.
