What are the BONS Wedding Awards?

From cake tastings to dress fittings to venue selections, the wedding planning process can be intimidating! To celebrate the North Shore experts who make wedding dreams a reality, Northshore magazine launched the annual “Best of the North Shore” (BONS) Wedding Awards. The results will be featured in the January/February 2020 Wedding + Travel issue! We have six categories—attire, beauty, details, menu, setting, and the plan—and 40 subcategories.
