That’s right it is our wedding special as we take a look at the best ways to prepare to tie the knot with fashion pitfalls you should avoid and how to deal with the big-day blues from style consultant Joshua Heath. Our Grooming expert Will Fennell has suggestions to help you look your best on your big day – from looking less wrinkly to fine-tuning your kissable lips, home facials, and sexy scents. DNA speaks with 10 gay couples about how they planned for and celebrated their big day … some of the stories will bring a tear of joy to your eye! Plus hear how Bollywood flash mobs, colour schemers, an arrest for disorderly conduct, and two deaths all tie into a frenzied lead-up to one couples wedding in London. It’s not all nuptials and rings this edition of DNA, we catch up with Aussie journalist Patrick Abboud to chat about growing up in conservative Arab Western Sydney plus hosting the national broadcast of Sydney’s gay and lesbian Mardi Gras! We also jump in the kitchen of the super sexy Jordan Burno from the Australian TV show My Kitchen Rules. In pictures we catch up with former cover model Willie Gomez and Iggy Goncalve, we also take a look the new trend that see’s muscle men wear womens under.
