Are These Wedding Dresses Fug Or What?

I’m a regular watcher of TLC’s “Say Yes to the Dress.” Why? I have no idea. If you’ve never seen it, the reality show takes place at Kleinfeld Bridal, a huge bridal store in Manhattan.

The Strapless Wedding Gown—Are You Over It?

Last weekend, at the wedding of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, something of a style statement was made: Ivanka choose to wear a gown with sleeves. (Full disclosure: It was an orthodox Jewish wedding, so sleeves, depending on the rabbi doing the marrying, are sometimes required.) Immediately on Monday morning, Cathy Horyn, fashion critic of…

This Is What A Beautiful Bride Looks Like

I’m not even engaged and I frequently have thoughts like, “I have to tone my upper arms so they look skinny in my wedding dress!” How screwed up is that?!?! A blogger who actually is engaged and “sick and tired of seeing ads for ‘wedding weight loss,'” started up a blog where brides of all…

Bride Spends Her Wedding Night In Jail!

Weddings can get kind of crazy. Sometimes daddy drinks too much and makes an awkward toast, or your great grandmother shows up and misplaces her false teeth while you’re cutting the cake. Other times the bride slaps a cop and spends her wedding night in jail. Wait, what!? I know it sounds crazy, but that…

Would You Marry A Man Who Is Morbidly Obese?

Yesterday, I came across a wedding story in the Washington Post that caught my eye: “In the End It’s a Fairy Tale.” Who doesn’t like a happy ending? It was the wedding story of interior designer Kerilyn Fox, 34, and chef Peter Russo, 38. The bride describes their path to the altar as “part fairy…

New Wedding Invitation Trend: The Save-The-Date Video

Once upon a time, couples got engaged, picked a venue and sent out save-the-date cards. Cards morphed into postcards and magnets, and these days, the trendy way to announce you’re getting hitched (and we’re invited) is a video save-the-date. Usually the videos are set to some sort of Michael Buble song and feature…

The Not-So-Crazy Origins Of Bachelor And Bachelorette Parties

Bachelor and bachelorette parties have become synonymous with wild and reckless nights, the details of which are slightly obscured when describing it to significant others later. Movies like “Bachelor Party” and “The Hangover” paint the occasion as a shame-inducing free-for-all of alcohol and bawdiness, but it hasn’t always been that way. The origins of bachelor…

It’s My Wedding Day And I’ll Sue If I Want To

Wedding planning ’tis always a bit of a hassle. Despite hours upon hours of meticulous planning something is bound to go wrong.

Hey, Hollywood? I Want A Bachelorette Party Movie

I laughed so hard I cried this weekend, courtesy of “The Hangover.” (Did you see it? It was the blood brothers scene. OMG, so funny.) Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper are so hilarious as three friends who lose the groom-to-be during a wild bachelor party in Vegas.

Worth the $12 ticket, sure,…

For our July wedding, my fiancé and I have decided to write our own vows.
