Overview

"Will you marry me?"

If you or someone you love said yes, let America's wedding experts help you create a day as romantic as the day he asked. For more than a decade, Martha Stewart and the editors of Martha Stewart Weddings have guided brides down the aisle, onto the dance floor, and over the threshold with thousands of ideas for making their wedding day unforgettable. In this breathtakingly beautiful volume, brides-to-be — or anyone participating in planning this joyous event — will find ideas and inspiration for every element of a wedding, including decoration, flowers, cakes, food, favors, and photography.

The very best ideas from Martha Stewart Weddings have been organized here in four sections—For the Ceremony, For the Reception, Forever, and For Reference. For the Ceremony is filled with bridal bouquets, boutonnieres, and bridesmaids flowers. There are decorating ideas for every kind of ceremony imaginable — a classic clapboard church, a grassy meadow, or the family living room. For the Reception features exquisite lighting ideas, a selection of drinks and hors d'oeuvres, charming favors for guests, and, of course, cakes. There are more than 30 cakes to inspire you, and there is one to suit every style, taste, and budget. Novice bakers can learn how to make a basic wedding cake in Wedding Cake 101. Forever includes albums, guest books, and keepsakes. In the For Reference section there is information to help you plan the ceremony and reception, select music, chose stationery, prepare hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, and find supplies to make many of the projects pictured.

Designed to evoke the grandeur with which a wedding day should be celebrated,  The Best of Martha Stewart Weddings is the ultimate guide to creating a wedding day as touching as the words "I do."

I just told my aunt she should go work for Martha Stewart. She made the most incredible arrangements for my own wedding. I love how Martha arranges flowers. She has so many creative ideas. If you get her magazine, you will know what I am talking about. She even sells her own flowers now! This woman is incredible. Can you believe she only sleeps four hours a night. I just read that! I can see how she can write so many books and also gets so much done. Her books are always filled with inspiration. If you have missed out on all her magazines, this is a must have. I think it would make a great gift for all your friends who are dreaming of their own wedding. If you are getting married, then you will want to put this on your wish list for your bridal shower.

Very comprehensive. It may make you wish you were a rich----- instead of an average person happy with yourself. I add my own recommendation. Find someone to sing the wedding song from Ken Agori's novel The Defenders of the Holy Grail. It is very romantic and music is available in the back of the novel...Heard Celine may do it! Otherwise, get this from your libaray and save some bucks!!!

Martha Stewart Weddings was so helpful for the planning of my wedding. I got so many ideas for all of the little details that made my special day perfect. I took it with me the the florist, the bed and breakfast I had my wedding and to the caterer. Definitely one of the reasons people have told me that mine was the best wedding they ever went to.

I used this book as an inspiration for my wedding a couple months back. At night I would look at it for hours as it was so beautiful.

This book is filled with a breath-taking photos, elegant weddings, and doable ideas for all events surrounding the Big Day. It has been indispensible to me as I plan my own wedding. This is Martha's loveliest book yet.
