Amy Conway was named editor-in-chief of Martha Stewart Weddings in January of this year after serving as an editor-at-large for Martha Stewart Living. Her new position has her traveling a lot on business—often spending almost as much time at airports as she does on the ground. She also attends more than her fair share of weddings, and still gets emotional when she hears the vows.
The St. Louis native, who’s now based in Pelham, New York, has two teenagers at home, son Luca, 15 (pictured with Conway at Maine’s Acadia National Park this summer) and Virginia,13. The family also has two cats and one pug. “Funnily enough,” she says, “the pug’s name is Minerva, or Min for short.” (We just may have to adopt her as our brand’s mascot!) Now that Conway’s free time is at a premium, here’s how she spends it wisely—and how you can spend your money smartly when planning a wedding or honeymoon.
Song that gets you moving: My favorite workout mix is, uh, quite eclectic and includes these gems (don’t judge me):
“Mr. Brightside” by the Killers; “MMMBop” by Hanson; “It’s a Beautiful Day” by Michael Bublé; and the theme song from “Footloose.”
