Virtual Magazine Shopping with Martha Stewart Weddings and Revel

I’m a major collector of magazines, so you can only imagine the stacks and stacks of magazines that I have piled in my home. The one thing that I find frustrating is the actual shopping of a magazine. How do I purchase that spectacular dress on page 67 if I cannot find a way to buy it?

When I found out about what Martha Stewart Weddings had been up to, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Recently, Martha Stewart Weddings paired up with REVEL so that readers could log on and shop the issue, cover to cover! 

Here are some of the Martha Stewart Weddings magazine spreads available on REVEL:

And here’s  a link to the chic linen napkins that were featured:

It’s that easy to shop now with Revel and Martha Stewart Weddings!  

The Summer 2013 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, currently on stands, is now shoppable exclusively at REVEL.

M+D: The Cocktail Hour

Post Ceremony, we were busy!  First, we wanted to have a few minutes alone. There is a small conference room that we snuck into without telling anyone where we went.  It was nice to be alone (even without the photographer)!

Then, there were family portraits.  Since we had to take photos with four set of families, our Day of Coordinator, Marilyn, got everyone upstairs to take the photos.  We had a quick and efficient system to get all of the photos taken and were able to get 20 family portraits taken under 12 minutes.

Afterward, I headed up stairs to get un-veiled and bustled.  The Catering Manager was kind enough to have hors d’oeuvres and champagne brought up.  It was a fun especially since there was only a half dozen of us.

The veil is off. Thank goodness! It drove me crazy after a few hours.

This photo makes both of us laugh.

Finally, we joined the party!
It was so awesome to come downstairs and see everyone having a great time.

Since the room has a baby grand, we opted to hire a pianist to play during the cocktail hour.

To keep with the black and white theme, the escort cards had a damask border.

I’m totally happy that I bought the personalized napkins and matches from For Your Party! They were pricey but worth it.

Our Signature Drink, the Misselini.  I stole the drink tag idea from Martha Stewart.
