martha stewart real weddings issue

If you haven’t had a chance to flip through the pages of Martha Stewart’s Real Weddings Special Issue yet, you’re in for a treat!  From new “good things” (always a favorite of mine!), to enchanting floral design, to real wedding features, the special issue, released just twice a year, is rich with inspiration.

I’m happy to share a sneak peek of one of the weddings featured in this issue –Allison and Tyler’s mediterranean revival affair in Florida. With its pretty peach color palette and a mesmerizing love story (Allison and Tyler met in middle school!), this wedding is the stuff of dreams.

Guided by her father’s philosophy “the more, the merrier,” more than 370 guests feted the couple, while 14 bridesmaids, wearing neutral and blush-colored gowns, accompanied Allison at the altar, and three priests officiated the ceremony. To see all of the pretty details and read more of the story, be sure to pick up a copy of the Real Weddings Special Issue!

"thumbprint save the date idea"

Save the dates can be so much fun. Because they deliver just a little bit of information, as opposed to a wedding invitation, which has much more responsibility, you have the freedom to be just as creative as you want to be! The image above isn’t meant to be a save the date, but it could be — such a sweet + simple design. Below is a design by Cheree Berry. And, beneath it, two from the new Martha Stewart Weddings, which is full of fun save the date ideas.

registry style: whiteware

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

White dishes are to your pantry what the little black dress is to your closet. Don’t get me wrong, I bow at the altar of my china, but white dishes are the everyday, every dinner, every party workhorse. With a new napkin color, a new linen or different flatware, I have an entirely new table. It’s kind of like having neutral walls (big fan, by the way) – with little expense you can give a room (or table) new life with different accessories.

The brilliance of whiteware is that you can mix and match. Here are a few patterns that would be good starters for a collection…

Macy’s: scalloped edge, montmartre & kensington, all by Martha Stewart; antique whiteware by Mikasa; country heritage by Villeroy & Boch

Pottery Barn’s Great White

Queen Anne at Williams Sonoma

Match Pewter and Juliska’s “berry & thread” at Michael C. Fina. Both are also available locally for registry at Fraiche.

Anthropologie: paper pretender

Crate & Barrel: century (originally designed by Eva Zeisel)
