Summer Weddings

Summer is the season when most weddings take place in North America. In the United States, 35% of all weddings occur in the summer, 29% in the spring, 23% in the fall and just 13% in the winter. It's little wonder, then, that the summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is the publication's best-selling issue. This summer the editors focus on DIY style, providing the reader with all kinds of imaginative ways to bring a personal touch to your special day. On the cover, the bride is shown carrying a bouquet of paper flowers (faux real!) designed by artist Livia Cetti. There is an entire feature in the magazine about her craft with instructions on how to make your own paper bouquets. There is also a wonderful feature that provides clip-art and inspiration for making a magical photo booth, a "Just-Married" sign and lots of other ideas.  (You can get the clip-art here.) There are cakes by Ron Ben Israel, a beautiful location shoot in Oahu, Hawaii, and a colour palette story with lavender and goldenrod that will have you dreaming of this perfect pairing all day long. It's a gorgeous issue. It's on newsstands now! By the way, here are some interesting statistics about weddings in the U.S. in 2013.
