Man Proposes With 99 IPhones, Plan Doesn't Go Well

One man in China’s got 99 problems but his girlfriend … well, she’s not around anymore. Just in time for the country’s “Singles’ Day” today, which is becoming a popular day to propose, a young Guangzhou programmer bought 99 iPhone 6s, arranged them in a heart, and asked his girlfriend—in front of a crowd of friends and onlookers—for her hand in marriage, reports the Nanfang. But in spite of the grand gesture, she said no.

There's a Venti's Worth of Love In This Starbucks Proposal

Five years ago, Ethan Knapp and Kenna Rusk’s love story began at Starbucks when Ethan came in to turn in a job application while Kenna was working.

On October 16, Ethan fittingly popped the question to his girlfriend in front of the original Starbucks location in Seattle, bringing their love story full circle. On Thursday, Starbucks shared a super cute photo of the proposal on their Instagram account, where it amassed more than 100,000 likes from their well-caffeinated followers.

Congrats To The Soon-To-Be Mrs. Cumberbatch, But I’m Not Apologizing For My Impure Thoughts About Her Future Husband

Benedict Cumberbatch is getting married to an apparently incredibly talented, Samuel Beckett Award-winning theatre writer and director named Sophie Hunter. Well SHOOT. Since when was he even involved with anyone? He disappeared his love life like Sherlock disappeared himself at the end of season two (come on, you know that’s not a spoiler).

Instead of getting all irritated about it (whatever, I’ve got a real-life boyfriend), I’m going to list five badass things this woman has done (according to Wikipedia)… Keep reading »

15 Unique Engagement Rings For You To Gawk At

15 Unique Engagement Rings To Gawk At

Ever since that summer vacation when I was thirteen and Jennifer Lopez’s “The Wedding Planner” played over and over again on daytime TV, I’ve been a little bit obsessed with engagement rings. I’m more interested in looking at them online than I am with the idea of getting one (I mean, I want one eventually, but that’s not what this is about), so my obsession has turned me into an unofficial expert on the topic. I love unique, vintage, or different-looking rings — and judging by the results I get when I try to look up pictures on Pinterest, a lot of other women share my taste.

It would take at least a year for me to show you all the great rings I’ve found on Etsy, but you at least deserve a TASTE of my expertise… so here are 15 of the best ones. Please join me in gawking and swooning. Read more on The Gloss…

Why there's no way in hell Andrea Grimes will change her name. Read More »

Andrea is taking a much needed week off from her Hitched column this week, after spending the last few days reporting live from the Texas State Legislature as they attempted to rid the state of nearly all its clinics that provide abortions. (Thanks to Senator Wendy Davis and the rest of the “feminist army,” they failed.) So this week, I’m rerunning one of Andrea’s first Hitched columns, originally published on November 2, 2011. 

Wedding dress shopping. Here’s what happens to me: I walk into a bridal salon and tell the nice maternal saleswoman that I want a tea-length gown with no flowery accents. I am ushered into a dressing room where I am told that they have one tea length gown, it is covered in flowers, and did I want to try on, say, this $1,500 satin gown with a 14-foot train? For funsies? Repeat nine times. Nine. Nine.

“This is your one chance to be a princess!” one saleswoman told me. When I explained to her that my “princess” vision actually, like, seriously really did include a tea-length dress and she was just going to have to see if she could manage to wrap her mind around that, this total stranger looked at me like I had just shot her kitten point-blank in the face in the middle of the dress shop.

So, I went to the custom dressmaker. I told her what I wanted. She said she could totally do that, but she wouldn’t start the dress until next year, even though we’re getting married in April. Why?

“So you have time to get your weight where you want it.” Keep reading »

Although I certainly don’t believe every couple needs to take special photos celebrating their engagement, if you choose to do so, have fun with it. It’s easy to get swept away by all of the elaborate engagement photo shoots and save the date announcements circulating on the web, but the experience should be fun not stressful. Skip all the elaborate hype and consider the following before you begin. Keep reading »
