Darcy's Diary: What I'm Loving Right Now
Our Editor-at-Large, Darcy Miller, shares her favorite new sips, shoes, and registry gifts.
Martha's Latest Launch
Once the wedding is over, you'll need something to fill up all those wine glasses that you registered for. Martha Stewart just launched the Martha Stewart Wine Co., a new take on a wine subscription service that goes way beyond just your monthly wine club box. You can also get specially curated packs for weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays-pretty much anything worth celebrating! Get tasting notes from Martha herself, as well as her passionate sommelier, and you'll be well on your way to a box tailored to your tastes each month.
Great New Gift Ideas
Did you know that you can get pretty much anything from Amazon? Registering for your wedding just got a whole lot easier thanks to the online retailer. You've heard of Amazon's uber-cool Echo (she can control your house by voice alone!) but there's plenty of other great gift ideas on the website. Whether you fancy a cactus or succulents, houseplants are everywhere on Amazon. Bonus: They come from different nurseries across the country and express ship, so they'll be super-healthy when they arrive. If you'd rather escape into nature, consider a tandem bike. It's a fun and active way to spend time with your new hubby. Last but not least, you can now hire someone to clean your house thanks to Amazon Services. Pick your room, the amount of time, and desired service window. If that's not a gift every new couple needs, I don't know what is!
The Perfect Bridal Shoe
Your wedding shoes should look great and be comfortable. If they can be personalized? Well, that's an extra plus. Stuart Weitzman's new bridal shoe collection is better than ever thanks to new customization options. Weitzman was inspired by his own proposal to his wife of 50 years. When he got down on knee to ask Jane to marry him, instead of taking out a ring, he showed her a one-of-a-kind shoe inscribed with "Made expressly for the future Mrs. Weitzman." Now brides everywhere can have that same level of personalization in their big-day shoe, as the designer is offering women the option of adding their new married name and wedding date to the lining of their shoe.
