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…

15 Unique Engagement Rings For You 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…

Hitched: The Wedding Dress Body Project

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.

5 Dos & Don’ts For Taking Engagement Photos

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.

Hitched: You’re Engaged! Now What?

Last Friday night, Patrick and I took a break from drinking beers and talking smack about Mitt Romney to befriend two couples who happened by our neighborhood bar. They needed a place to sit; we offered to share our table. And as many newly engaged couples are, all four of them were a little bit…

Word has it that Jenni "JWOWW" Farley of "Jersey Shore" fame is engaged to her long-time boyfriend Roger Matthews.

10 Perfectly Good Reasons To Postpone A Wedding

Congratulations, you're engaged! But approximately 10 seconds after the ring has been placed on your finger, the interrogation from family, friends and coworkers begins: Have you found a dress? Religious or non-religious? How many bridesmaids? Where's the bachelorette party? How about the honeymoon? How many people are you inviting? And the biggest one of all:…

Hitched: I Love My Dad, But I Don’t Want Him To Give Me Away

I think I just got away with telling my dad he won’t be giving me away at my wedding -- and the world didn’t fall apart. I’d been putting it off, the telling him, partly because I never know whether my dad is going to care. I know he cares a lot about high-quality French…

Hitched: What Does It Mean To Be A Wife?

I’ve been putting off making the trip to the county clerk’s office to see about getting Patrick and I common-law married. In order for me to be enrolled on his health insurance, Patrick’s employers need some kind of governmentally sanctioned proof that we’re not just total liars. The process in Texas for proving you’re not a total liar i…

Hitched: Wedding Planning Is The Worst

I started having emotional breakdowns about a month into wedding planning. Sweaty palms, heart racing, knees weak, teary eyes, total immobilization. I would find myself staring at a web page filled with tiki torches or green bridesmaid dresses or centerpiece ideas, and I would just stop dead in my wedding tracks. It became the worst…

Hitched: Getting Engaged Without A Ring

When you get drunk with your boyfriend at the lake and decide to get engaged while under the influence of a decent-sized bottle of Jim Beam, you don't exactly get the whole kneel-down, velvet-box proposal. No, what you get is peeling your face off a mattress the next morning and wondering where your pant…

Hitched: What’s In A Name?

Last month, my boyfriend Patrick and I drank a bottle of Jim Beam at the lake and decided to get married. When we peeled our faces off a sticky, half-deflated air mattress the next morning, we asked ourselves two questions: first, did we still want to get married, and second, how about some Taco Bell?

I Got Proposed To By Santa Claus

Christmastime always transformed me. It made my heart expand in my chest, placing me in perpetual rapture for at least two months out of the year. I was inevitably intoxicated by the twinkling lights, the smell of cookies baking, our family's annual trip to the tattered Christmas display at Fountains of Wayne.

I Don’t Always Wear My Wedding Ring

I'm back from a girlfriend getaway in paradise. Traveling with a best friend off the beaten path awakened joy in me and soothed my soul, but it also left me wondering: Why can't I capture that sense of fun and wonder in everyday life? Why do I feel so stuck here in Boston, yet I…

I had always been sure I wanted to get married, and the longer I dated Dean, the more sure I was that he was the right one for me. That is ... until I got engaged. Dean's proposal wasn't a surprise. I was too nosy to not know it was happening, and I enthusiastically said…

How To Propose To A Woman

Ideally, a proposal shouldn't only be romantic or intimate, it should be unique. After all, this is the story we'll be telling our girlfriends for the rest of our lives, so it better not bore anyone to tears. Top of the Empire State Building? Yaawwwn. Over a candlelit dinner?
