I would love to introduce one wedding website I love:
Lots of people should be really familiar with the name “Martha Stewart.”
She is very famous for her lifestyle TV shows and bestselling books.
Though she was once in prison for insight trading, this did not affect her status as the No.1 lifestyle guru in the U.S.
The magazine “Martha Stewart Wedding” issued by Martha’s company is a quarterly publication.
It was licensed to Meredith Corp. for any non-editorial operations in 2014.
In the second half of 2014, the magazine had really great performance by nearly doubling its subscription while most print magazines kept losing sales.
In Taiwan it costs NTD 450 for a new issue.
If you do not collect magazines, you can actually get lots of useful information just from its website.
For stylists, photographers, wedding planners and couples who are getting married, this website is really a good reference.
Below are the key factors why it is a good one.
///Back Numbers still Popular in Second-hand Market
You can still find back numbers of “Martha Stewart Wedding” easily in eBay and Amazon.
Some issues with exclusive content such as celebrity weddings can still get really good prices.
///Exclusive and Firsthand Report of Celebrity Weddings
As a celebrity and good friends of celebrities, Martha very often got the exclusive reports of celebrity weddings such as weddings of Blake Lively & Ryan Reynold,Kate Bosworth & Michael Polish and Blaine Lawrence & Carson Massler.
///No.1 Wedding DIY Reference
After all, Martha is famous as a lifestyle guru.If you want to get some ideas of DIY gifts, floral art and clip art, this website is definitely the best resource.
Contents Kelly recommends:
I really like the systematic categories (navigation bar) of MarthaStewartWeddings.com
From “Start Planning”, “Details & Inspirations” and “Bridal Style”, you can easily find information you need no matter what stage you are in(you can even find a topic like “Dogs in Real Weddings” in this website) during the preparation of your wedding.
If you think Taiwanese weddings are really complicated, maybe it is because you have not been through the “whole set” of western weddings.
(Whole set of western weddings: proposal→bridal shower→bachelorette party→rehearsal dinner→the big day)
You can really tell this from the website.
Actually weddings are all the same globally:
Simple or complicated? You can decide it!
Real Weddings in MarthaStewartWeddings.com are my favorite part.
Do not assume western weddings are always filled with twilight and tasteful decoration.
If you have watched TV program “Don’t Tell the Bride”, you would realise not every western wedding is a “tasteful banquet.”
Weddings published in MarthaStewartWeddings.com are selected by editors, and every wedding is a really good reference for your own wedding style and theme.
You can also see lots of tasteful celebrity weddings in this section.
Those who purely like delicate pictures cannot miss Pinterest boards of MarthaStewartWeddings.com.
Seeking some ideas for your wedding?
You can definitely get best inspired by those pictures.
Even if you are neither couples getting married nor people working in wedding industry, to follow boards of MarthaStewartWeddings.com will just light up your mood.
This section is strongly recommended to brides and stylists.
Kelly really likes the simplicity of western bridals styles.
Very often you can see hair styles of western brides are either “boosted root with a bun “or “curled hair with big side parting.”
(A simple style does not mean an easy style.
No matter how simple a style is, it needs real skills to make a well-balanced and elegant one.
Alexa Chung once said “it takes a lot of efforts to look effortless.”)
In this section, you can very often see step-by-step hair tutorials, and they are very useful.
What I love most about the makeup part is that the recommended items are all depicted with specific brand, colour, and masters who recommended them.
If you also love styles that look simple and nature, you cannot miss this part.
Above are reasons I love MarthaStewartWeddings.com.
Hope you enjoy reading it.
See you next time : )
