When it came time to get married, our cover stars, actress–style blogger Jamie Chung and actor-singer-songwriter Bryan Greenberg, headed to a rustic lodge for three days of love and laughter—and some pretty amazing costumes with their celeb-studded guest list. We've got the exclusive on all of the details (and photos!) from the couple's Halloween wedding in California!
Stars aside, our annual color issue will help YOU use color in fun, fresh ways when planning and personalizing your day. From the nuts and bolts of firming up your palette to putting it to work in your attire (hello, dresses and accessories that pop and pink and yellow gems that sparkle), your celebration will be as colorful as your love story.
We've also got plenty of etiquette advice in The Planner, including vow-writing know-how, advice on hiring an officiant that "gets you," plus new rules for same-sex celebrations. We even spell out the responsibilities of everyone in your bridal party, so you aren't weighed down with that task when the time comes. You'll also find a chart on alternative bachelorette parties for every type of bride (in case a rowdy weekend in Vegas just isn't "you").
And with our fifth-annual Big-Day Beauty Awards, you'll benefit from the wisdom of former brides who share what hair and makeup products they used for their walk down the aisle and still love today. Plus, we let industry buffs weigh in on what works best. We've curated all of these favorites into a list of 45 dynamite finds to stock your own day-of arsenal, with many of the top earners priced under $5.
Plus, get excited about you and your groom's next adventure: the honeymoon! Our five-page travel feature showcases unique, unexpected wedding venues; gives honeymooners the lowdown on the chic-est, coolest cruises; and names the must-see beaches (both scene-y and secret) in a variety of locales. Happy trails! Pick up the new of Martha Stewart Weddings on newsstands now!
