    Summer happens to be my personal favorite season! Anyone who knows me, knows I love watermelon- and in the summer, I live off of it! Thats probably what inspired the perfect beach accessories guide: Melon Mix (page 116). And, while Im not really one for camping, I have to admit, I am tempted to test out my rugged outdoor abilities in one of the amazing glamping locations featured in our Gone Camping article (page 102).

    Make your something old the focal point of your wedding with an antique wedding dress! Use our Guide to Vintage Gowns (page 39) to educate yourself on the different styles, fabrics and embellishments available.

    If youre still trying to decide on a color combination for your summer wedding, check out our Summer Color Palettes (page 82) for some of our current faves. Or, if you already have your colors and theme picked out, get ready to doll yourself up for your big day with Primped to Party (page 55), including makeup looks for some of summers most popular wedding themes!

    Now sit back, relax by the pool, eat a piece of watermelon and enjoy the In Bliss Weddings Summer 2014 issue!

  • A No, so long as you take time to greet and thank all your guests in some other way. Having attendees queue up for a 30-second hello can feel a bit like a publicity tour. Add some of the wedding party to the lineup, as is tradition, and youve got a slightly awkward situation for unfamiliar guests. You can kick this old-fashioned custom in favor of a more informal greeting. Your best bet is to visit tables during dinner, when everyone is sure to be seated.

    QQ How much time can I ask off from work during the planning process?

    Q I addressed my invitations using guests full names, but Im getting responses using nicknames. Which should I use on the place car
