Martha Stewart Weddings - - CONTENTS -

This time of year is all about lazy days and leisurely nights . . . right? If you’re shak­ing your head and think­ing about your to-do list, you must be one of the many cou­ples get­ting mar­ried in the next cou­ple of months. In which case you’re very, very busy! It may not be re­lax­ing, but your sum­mer will cer­tainly be spe­cial. And whether your event is right around the corner or still early in plan­ning stages, we’re here to help.

We al­ways like to give you a mix of big-pic­ture in­spi­ra­tion and use­ful info. For the former, if you’re work­ing on your color palette and vis­ual theme, check out our in­vi­ta­tions (page 63) and beau­ti­ful dec­o­ra­tions based on nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als and bas­ket-weave de­signs (page 130). Dress shop­ping? We’re in love with the cool vibe we’re see­ing from so many de­sign­ers, and chose some of our fa­vorite gowns to highlight against the back­drop of the Cal­i­for­nia desert—though they would be gor­geous any­where.

If you’re get­ting close to your date and down to the de­tails, you’ll find easy, breezy ideas for DIY fa­vors, party sup­plies to buy, and much more in Good Things (page 33). Our Plan­ner (page 115) is packed with ad­vice—in­clud­ing the low­down on fire­works. I can’t think of a bet­ter way to cel­e­brate a mar­riage than with an awe-in­spir­ing, lit-up sum­mer sky. And that re­lax­ation you could use? We also have lots of ideas for your hon­ey­moon (page 185).
