Overview of Weddings by Martha Stewart

Nothing is more thrilling and romantic than a beautiful wedding. Here, in a simply spectacular book, Martha Stewart takes us behind the scenes of some of the most lovely weddings ever. Over 40 weddings and receptions, from small, intimate celebrations for 18 to lavish parties for 400, are documented in more than 700 full-color photographs. The settings are as varied as an idyllic country farm in New Jersey, a gracious mansion on eastern Long Island, an elegant townhouse in New York City, a private island in New Hampshire, a ranch in Texas, and the oldest and most beautiful cathedral in Montreal. We see the choices the brides, grooms, and their families made and how they planned every detail of their special day.

All the essential elements of a wedding are discussed in depth in chapters filled with information and ideas: Style, Organization, Invitations, Wedding Dresses, Bridal Bouquets, Ceremony, Music, Decoration, and, of course, Wedding Menus and Cakes. More than 120 recipes are included for varied wedding receptions, from cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to buffets, sit-down lunches and dinners, and even barbecues. Twelve different recipes for traditional as well as nontraditional wedding cakes (including carrot, lemon, and even a cheesecake) are included along with step-by-step instructions for assembling and decorating them.

Weddings are back in style, and anyone who is getting married or is involved in some way with a wedding will want to read and use this wonderfully inspiring book.

A behind-the-scenes look at 40 weddings in a variety of settings.

Publishers Weekly

This is a lavish, oversize album bursting with intelligent nuptial advice and spectacular color photos, although it is unclear whether the book is intended for the bridal couple or wedding professionals. Caterer Stewart (Entertaining, etc.) documents a rich sampling of weddings at home and club, in farmhouse and on yacht, for first and second marriages, and offers tips on organization, invitations, wedding dresses, ceremonies, music and decoration that will inspire prospective brides and grooms. But a professional readership is suggested by the inclusion of instructions (step-by-step and illustrated) for constructing bridal bouquets and wedding cakes, as well as some 120 eclectic, festive recipesfor example, smoked turkey on currant scones, French bread with strawberry butter, wild-rice pancakes with red-pepper jelly and roast loin of pork with prunes. 100,000 ad/promo; Better Homes and Gardens Book Clubs selection; author tour. (April 1)
