Many people agree that marriage is a leap of faith. This season, brides can take that literally and head down the aisle in the favorite garb of Elvis, Abba and GI Joe: the jumpsuit. The look won’t work for every wedding. Anyone marrying in a traditional house of worship, for example, would probably look as out of place as a picnic-goer in sequins.
Engagement season is just a heartbeat away. For the three months between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, hopeful swains will be hanging cushion-cut diamonds from Christmas tree boughs and tucking them into chocolate boxes, determined to make their proposal the most creative of all. What comes next, of course, is the engagement party. Whether you’re hosting your own or are being feted by family, this when a bride gets to hint about her wedding style.
Unlike the Young Turks of seasons past, today’s up-and-coming wedding designers understand that brides want to be brides. While every woman approaching the altar has a unique sense of style, each also wants to spend their special day looking and feeling extraordinary: the embodiment of grace (or sophistication…or romance). While their outlooks are modern, there’s no question that these talents create frocks that are meant to indulge enduring fantasies. Now, meet the season’s most notable new faces.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
