    Martha Stewart — the reigning doyenne of all things lifestyle — can design a floral arrangement that could bring us to tears. Now, the media mogul's bridal site, Martha Stewart Weddings, is here to serve up some seriously mood-lifting wedding inspiration, whether you're about to walk down the aisle or not.
