With summer vacations coming to an end and school kicking into gear, autumn brings an invitation to get to work—and with a wedding on the horizon, you'll be busy in the best possible way. The latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings celebrates the season's latest rings, wedding dresses, floral trends, and more to inspire the design of the day you say, "I do."
If you think an engagement may soon be coming your way, look no further than the cover for a collection of dazzling rings in different shapes and sizes. Like what you see? Turn to the feature for the full round-up—all styled with ring boxes just as precious as the stones themselves.
For this issue's fashion story, our team went west to capture stunning blush, black, and white gowns against the backdrop of White Sands National Monument. You'll find a roster of looks to suit any style, whether you're after a plunging V-neck, an off-the-shoulder silhouette, or a two-piece ensemble. We have the guys covered, too: Our Groom's Guide showcases accessories (and suits, of course) for dress codes from black tie to casual.
Just in time for fashion week, we also have a collection of runway-worthy arrangements created by nine New York-based florists. Use their creations as inspiration for bouquets and centerpieces of your own. Read on for more ideas to implement into your big day: This issue has five real weddings, including an epic Washington, D.C., celebration, a chic black-and-white fête in California, and more.
Last (but certainly not least), we present the results of our Most Romantic Destinations survey. Our first ever travel awards feature our readers' favorite honeymoon spots across the globe (think Turks and Caicos, Riviera Maya, and the Amalfi Coast…), plus highlights of what to see and do in each destination.
The new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is on stands Monday, September 4th!
