Six Things We're Loving Right Now
Style Editor Katie Covington shares some of her favorite wedding finds.
Working at Martha Stewart Weddings means stumbling upon incredible bridal finds every single day. So, each week, one of our editors will spotlight a few of their current obsessions—from a cool stationer to a fresh new baker to an under-the-radar wedding-dress designer to must-have accessories for your rehearsal dinner—to hopefully help inspire your own wedding day. This week, Style Editor Katie Covington reveals what she's loving now.
Justina Blakeney for Wedding Paper Divas
Los Angeles creative Justina Blakeney, author of The New Bohemians
, paired up with Wedding Paper Divas to create a bridal stationery line inspired by plants, flowers, her own wedding. I especially love the shower games that match each suite for a super easy bridal shower activity.

Patches, and Stickers are All Grown Up (Sort of)
All of a sudden, pins and patches are everywhere. Betty White pin? Yes, they make one. Emojis? Obviously. Why not send save-the-dates with an accompanying Champagne or Fingers-Crossed pin? I love the idea of gifting your gals standing up there with you a leather sticker or two to personalize an simple clutch for the wedding day.

Three Potato Four Letterboard
Let me count the ways this old school letterboard will come in handy at your wedding: Guests will know to pick a seat—not a side—at the ceremony, they'll never forget the wedding #hashtag, and they can write you a short note on it. Take their photo and you'll have a mugshot-inspired guest book.
Available in white and black and an assortment of sizes.
12 x 18 letterboard, $90, threepotatofour.com.
Love Is All Card
Stock up on cards for your squad and your fiancé. This bright "Love is All" card from San-Francisco-based Yellow Owl Workshop works for everyone.

Peeping the Paris Shows
Talk about #squadgoals! While I may not be wearing haute couture down the aisle, there is no better place to look for inspiration on silhouettes, fabric treatments, and color combinations.
These Giambattista Valli couture gowns are a sea of tulle. Valentino showed both frothy pleated white gowns with touches of shimmer along with a few more structured architectural dresses fit for a wedding at their Spring/Summer 2016 couture show in Paris.
RMS Beauty Living Luminizer
Ever wondered how J. Crew models get their perfect glowy skin? This is it. Apply a quick swipe along the bridge of the nose, the inner corners of eyes, and on the cupid's bow for a quick, glowy pick-me-up. Made from coconut oil and mica, it's easy to apply just a hint of shimmer. You might not forget your sun hasn't seen the sun in months, but it doesn't have to look like it.
