A big, messy smacker of a kiss from my daughter. Especially if I haven't had to beg for it.

I savour every one because I know one day she'll be too embarrassed or busy to bother. They're fleeting and already too rare so that's what makes me covet them all the more. And that's what a luxury is to me.

TAKE A SNEAK PEEK AT OUR MAY/JUNE ISSUE HERE...

Something that isn't everyday. Something completely special that you know you're lucky to have. Like a house filled with gorgeous fresh cut flowers or sinking my teeth into a Victoria sponge cake and not giving a hoot about the calories.It's not going to happen every day but when it does you're elevated somehow way above the ordinary.

BROWSE THROUGH THOUSANDS OF WEDDING DRESSES

And as this is the Super Luxe issue, I thought it would be fun to ask the Brides team and some of our favourite designers just what 'luxury' means to them. What I love about the responses is just how many of them cost so little. And that was the feeling behind this entire issue: how to deliver for you an incredibly luxurious wedding day, special in every way imaginable, without it costing the earth...

BE INSPIRED BY REAL-LIFE WEDDINGS

Luxury for me is...

Elizabeth Edwards, Brides Art Editor, said: "Just wearing my fave red Chanel lipstick!"

Laura Burkitt, PA to the Editor, said: "Allowing myself something beyond what I need - a whole pot of tea for one, organic soap wrapped in brown paper, buying silk pyjamas even though they're a nightmare to wash."

Bruce Oldfield said: "The coming together of different elements, the best fabrics and the finest crasftsmanship to create the perfect whole."

Jenny Packham said: "A five-star holiday in the Maldives. The softness of a woollen scarf on a cold day or the smell of a scented candle as you slip into a bath. It can mean craftsmanship or functionality. Something you perceive to be special and have achieved, if only for a moment. Things that carry us forward with a love of life."
