12 Non-Lame Favors To Give Guests At Your Awesome Wedding

Most of the suggestions that you’ll find online for favors are totally lame (no offense if you’ve bought some of these): Personalized doo-dads no one will use, as if you need to constantly have your guests reminded of the fact that YOU GOT MARRIED!!!!!!; cruddy, also-personalized chocolate bars that no one really wants to eat; booze when your guests are probably already drunk; bottle openers, as if most adults don’t already have one; shot glasses that they can put next to their other shot glasses from, like, spring break, and do you really want to be remembered that way? The only cool, oft-suggested exceptions, in my incredibly humble opinion, are photo booths (which cost so much) and little samples of a signature cocktail from your wedding (which would also cost so much).

Black Wedding Dresses, Six Ways

I wrote earlier this week about my total opposition to white wedding dresses and everything they stand for. Instead, I’ll be wearing a two-piece black dress to my wedding. Black dresses are versatile and re-wearable, always an excellent addition to your wardrobe, and blessedly more affordable than most traditional white wedding gowns. Flip through the gallery for black wedding inspiration!

Which Wedding Planning App Is The Best?

Going into wedding planning, I already know what a lot of my proclivities are as a bride — partially because I’m a neurotic planner, and partially because, well, I’ve done this before. You live, you learn.

One of my proclivities: I hate The Knot. I hate it with a passion. They try to swindle you into buying into the wedding industrial complex. They want you to choose “colors” and “a theme” and hire the vendors who pay to be advertised on The Knot with money that they make by upcharging the shit out of their services. They propagate giant “fairy tale” weddings with all the bells and whistles. Why? All of their advertisers sell those bells and whistles, duh Keep reading »

Hitched 2.0: 7 Details I’m Afraid I’ll Forget To Plan

Hitched 2.0: 7 Details I’m Afraid I’ll Forget To Plan

When I started wedding planning, I wasn’t really worried about much. I’ve always been an extremely organized person, one who has a clearly labeled binder for pretty much every aspect of her life—and our wedding is no exception. Shortly after we got engaged, my sister gifted me with a fresh binder and I wasted no time adding dividers for all the key aspects of our wedding: venue, cake, flowers, music, invites. I created a private Pinterest account with a board for even more categories: bridesmaids, hairstyles, photo ideas, and more. But as the time passed, my attention to wedding details has slipped.

After booking our venue then spending several months doing nothing, we did start to focus on some big, important things, like the photographer, videographer, reception music and my dress. But after taking care of the more “urgent” tasks, I filed many other to-dos under “things that can wait”— and wait they did. I’ve spent little-to-no time thinking of those things, and I accidentally neglect every sort of wedding checklist I’ve signed up for. What I’ve learned is this: No amount of binders, Pinterest boards, or apps will help you do your wedding planning if you ignore them. As we inch toward our wedding date, I’m legitimately afraid I’m going to just forget to take care of a few things… Keep reading »

This “Little Mermaid” Wedding Is Your Fairy Tale

This Little Mermaid Wedding Is Your Fairy Tale

If you dreamed of having a Disney princess wedding when you were little, this Little Mermaid fairy tale come true is for you. Traci Hines, who has a YouTube series where she plays a hipster Ariel, made her mermaid transformation official when she (pretend) tied the knot on the beach. Unfortunately, this wedding was just a photo shoot, which makes sense because I can’t think of a boy alive who would be down for this, unless Ariel was his ultimate fantasy.

10 Things That Would Have Made Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s Wedding Way More Interesting

This past weekend, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally tied the knot in France after nine years and six kids together, and the details of their big day are just being released. As you can imagine, everything about the nuptials sounded magical from the scent of rosemary and jasmine wafting into the chapel, to the magnificent French and Italian cuisine served afterwards. I’m sure it was a lovely day and all, but don’t you kind of wish Jen Aniston delivered them a big, steamy bag of dog poop from a drone right as they were about to say “I do”? I know I do. Here are 10 other things that didn’t happen, but totally would have made the Brangie wedding more interesting.  Keep reading »
