For couples that tied the marital knot in 2016, the year is indeed significant and will remain so in the future.

It seems weddings held in 2016 were as unique and special as each bride and groom who took their vows.

Trends fluctuated from a destination wedding at an exotic resort to a simple affair in a quiet little church surrounded by only the nearest and dearest of loved ones.

Bride’s dresses did not seem to follow an established trend either. Traditional, long, short, full skirted or sheath and form fitting all took a role with the main adornment being the bride’s lovely face.

Something old, something borrowed, something new is a tradition that remains wonderful, timeless and will, no doubt, unearth memories in years to come.

And whether the bride walked down a carpeted church aisle ‘Here Comes the Bride,’ or decided to throw tradition to the wind and exchange her wedding vows with her beloved in a hot air balloon, the union of marriage remains the same.

The Rimbey Review wants to help couples share the celebration of their wedding with us.

We are inviting couples wed in 2016 to take part in our wedding keepsake feature and submit a picture to the Review by Feb. 23 to be published in the Feb. 28 issue.

All wedding pictures will receive a special rate for publication.

Anyone who has an interesting story about their wedding that they would like to share may contact Treena Mielke, editor, at 403-843-4909 or email her at
