I didn't even know who Martha Stewart was until she went to jail.
In Australia she isn't really a household name (not in our house anyway)
I really like her Wedding Magazine.
It seems like a breath of fresh air compared to all the others.. They are not afraid of using colour, lots of DIY, and some Variety.. all of which are sorely missing from most other bridal publications.
In the Winter 09 edition there a few ideas which I am seriously thinking of incorporating into our wedding. The first is the cake as seen on the cover and detailed on pg 84.
Basically a plain old cake with fabric butterlies or flowers stuck into it. Lots cheaper than marzipan ones.
The other idea I like is from pg 74 and is the instructions for homemade fabric-backed invites (not unlike this card that caught my eye a while ago). I like the look of a plain and simple front, with a bold textile print at the back.
You could have them as classic or as out there as you wanted.. I am feeling inspired by some of the cool retro fabrics at Posie Patchwork
