What If I Don’t Want to Get Married?

This afternoon, I was at my parents’ house for a family friend get-together. I always enjoy these “parties” because they are both low-key and you are able to receive an update on the lives of people that you haven’t seen for years!

The Indifferent Bride

It’s been a little over a month since I got engaged, and other than securing a date and spot for the wedding ceremony (late July in a small Central Park garden), I haven’t done a thing to prepare. To tell you the truth, some days I don’t bother putting on my ring, and…

Though I’ve heard it’s a helpful resource for brides, I’ve never had reason to visit it myself (even if I were engaged, I’d be more of an IndieBride), but I took the news of…

Brides Are Demanding Botox For Bridesmaids

Hiring a hairstylist and a makeup artist used to be sufficient for the big day, but not anymore. Brides are increasingly demanding or strongly suggesting their bridesmaids, mothers and mothers-in-law get all types of cosmetic enhancements, like Botox, Restylane, and even breast implants. In most cases, the brides are replacing the customary mani/pedi bonding sessio…

The 5 Worst Cake Toppers Ever Molded

Bridesmen Are The New Bridesmaids

If you think the premise of the movie Made of Honor (bride’s best friend is a guy, and bride asks him to be her maid of honor) is a bunch of hooey, you thought wrong. Non-traditional wedding traditions, including asking a guy to be the man of honor, are becoming more common, according to WeddingChannel.com…

Wedding Advice: Try Not To Get Tased And/Or Arrested On Your Wedding Night

A couple in Vallejo, CA, had a rowdy party after their wedding on Saturday. The police came twice and, supposedly, the groom took off his shirt and approached an officer like he wanted to fight. The cop pulled a Taser on him, the groom and a cousin were arrested, and the bride was taken into…
