Audra Lowe: All right, everybody loves weddings but no one knows how to throw a party quite like Martha Stewart does. So when it comes to planning the biggest party of all, your wedding, why not ask Martha what she thinks, right? The hottest trends are out this season and we sent designer and bride-to-be, Jen Adams to find out more. Jennifer Adams: We’re at Martha Stewart’s World Headquarters where she’s having a private party for all the who’s who in the wedding industry. We’re going to find out what’s hot with food and cocktails and the bling-bling. And we’re with none other than the Martha Stewart. What makes a wedding a Martha wedding? Martha Stewart: Personal attention to detail. Jennifer Adams: I like that. Martha Stewart: All that little details that just bring it all together. I think that’s really what makes it special. Jennifer Adams: Do you have one detail that you think a bride should never miss? Martha Stewart: Well, beautiful flowers, beautiful dress, beautiful venue and a beautiful bride and groom. Jennifer Adams: We’re with Marie from Spachics on the go and they're featuring SC Nail Polish today. What are the hot colors for brides right now? Marie Scalogna: It’s all about metallic. And SC want’s everyone to know that you don’t have to do a boring traditional French manicure, but you can be wild, you can do metallic gold, metallic silver even metallic blue and really like play with your nail color. Jennifer Adams: Should the bride get her manicure the day of? Marie Scalogna: I'm a big fan of the bride getting the manicure the day before because with the brides nerves and things can smudge and so many things are going on; so I'm a fan of like having a relaxing mani and pedi the day before. Jennifer Adams: I think it goes without saying you're my fave, Randy Fenoli from Yes to the Dress. Thank you. Randy Fenoli: Thank you for having me. Jennifer Adams: I'm so glad you're here. So what’s hot now on Yes to the Dress? Randy Fenoli: Well right now, we actually have a new, which is called Big Bliss which is for the bigger-figured woman. And I'm so excited about this project. It’s really special to my heart because what a lot of people don’t realize is that bridal gowns come in a sample size 10, which really fits like a size 6 or 8. So a lot of women are spending thousands of dollars on these dresses can’t even try them on. So, we’re carrying a very sensitive collection of fuller, bigger dresses. Jennifer Adams: I've found my very favorite thing, a candy bar. Is this a setup you do in a wedding? Female: Yes, this is the Candy Bar that Martha Stewart team designed for us as Sandals Weddings by Martha Stewart in the Caribbean. Jennifer Adams: Now, why would you have a candy bar at the wedding besides the obvious that they taste really good? Female: It’s a great interaction for your guests and it’s something for them to take away—a little favor for them to take away. Jennifer Adams: Oh, so this is not in replacement of a dessert? Female: No. This is in addition to the dessert. Jennifer Adams: So what trends are you seeing for bridal veils? Mark Ingram: You know, it’s all about extravagant this season. Everything is long, luxurious, full and you know brilliant—tool, dresses, gorgeous fitting, veils are long. They are embellished. I think we’re sort of tired of being couldn’t step on the recession and kind of go out and party and have a great time. Jennifer Adams: Now, we have the woman behind it all. The editor and director of Martha Stewart Weddings; thank you for having us here tonight. Are you seeing weddings being more simple right now or are they more lavish? Darcy Miller: I think we’re seeing all different kinds of weddings. I think there’s a much bigger range of weddings because brides are really wanting to be more personal. So whether it’s as I said destination—I mean now, up to 30% of weddings can be destinations. Jennifer Adams: I'm starting to think all the glitters are not gold, but maybe it is. Happy wedding planning, I'm Jennifer Adams and I'm off to enjoy the party.
