My stomach hurts from laughing so hard. One lucky couple can now include the world’s most iconic photo in their wedding album, and it’s all because of a little miscommunication. Bride-to-be Kristen, who was planning to marry in England, text messaged a group of friends inviting them to a bridal party barbecue and photo shoot,… More »
Getting married at McDonald’s would have been my wildest dream around age five. Apparently some couples in Hong Kong never let go of that dream and are actually getting married with Ronald McDonald as a witness.
The wedding program at Hong Kong McDonald’s locations has become so popular that the website has a… More »
A lot of times, weddings are more fun for the guests than for the actual bride and groom. We basically get to sit back and enjoy the show while everyone else runs things, and when the drinks are flowing and the dance floor is calling our name, life is grand. But when the alcohol is… More »
This weekend, Amelia and I are both attending weddings. As a frequent wedding guest, this particular wedding season has been a challenge. I have worn and re-worn every single dress in my closet. Last weekend, I offered Katie three dresses from my collection to borrow for a wedding she was attending, because she too, has… More »
I’ve missed my calling, and some bitch has beat me to it.
Recently, an entrepreneurial New York woman with extensive experience as a bridesmaid stepped up her game by posting a Craigslist ad offering her services as a “Professional Bridesmaid.” Why I didn’t think of this first will haunt me for the rest… More »
This performance by newlywed Sean Rajaee and his groomsmen is pretty much my favorite wedding video of all time and I cannot stop watching it on repeat. Rajaee secretly choreographed the dance as a surprise for his bride, and lots of the groomsmen lived out of town and had to learn the routine via video… More »
When I got married in 2011, we spent a cumulative $12,000 and called it a bargain. And it was a bargain — the average American wedding costs $25,200 these days. We cut corners, but we did the whole shebang: Big gown, big venue, big meal, big dessert table, photography, videography, DJ, centerpieces, customized everything, tuxes, event… More »
Do you remember being a kid and showing up at your birthday party simply to have fun? The pizza, the cake, crafts, clown, balloons, goodie bags, music, all just magically appeared and your only responsibility was to have a blast? If so, email your parents a thank you.
No party, big or small,… More »
It’s that time of year again — wedding season. If you’re not planning your own wedding, you probably have one or 11 already on your summer calendar.

A Pennsylvania newlywed was sort of amused to see party-crashers at her wedding—at first. Then she decided to hunt them down, ABC News reports. Krista Lamlin spotted the well-dressed pair at her Jan. 18 wedding reception in Valley Forge, Pa., at a table with her cousins. “They were dressed to go,” she tells ABC6. “They were ready for… More »
As a child, whenever I closed my eyes every wedding dress looked the same: a strapless ball gown, with a long white veil. (Maybe that was the dress my Barbie came with?) In reality, wedding dresses (or jumpsuits) come in many shapes, sizes, and fabrics, the unique beauty of each being in the details.

Our open mindedness to friends-with-benefits lifestyles is coming around, once again, to bite us in the bum. A new study reveals that 60 percent of newlyweds have slept with at least two guests invited to their wedding. You might think this is normal enough, considering typically everyone has at least one ex and sometimes people remain friends… More »
This summer, I’ll have the pleasure of standing by my good girlfriend’s side as a trusty bridesmaid while she says “I do” to the man of her dreams. This isn’t my first time at the rodeo, though. I’ve been a bridesmaid several times before, responsible for holding the bride’s bouquet, helping to plan the bachelorette… More »
Passion begets passion. And marrying your bicycle begets an excuse to start an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for your dream honeymoon. As a young adult, Lisa Nelson never rode a bike for more than 5 miles. She took up cycling while working at a non-profit program that “focused on turning delinquent youth on to… More »

It’s high time for American couples to take their cue from the Russians when it comes to their style of wedding photography. The new rules for capturing your big day include: don’t be afraid to rely heavily on Photoshop, draw inspiration from Greek mythology, and spread your legs whenever you feel like it. There’s more… More »
I was traveling last night, so I missed most of the Grammys. I tuned in for about four minutes, in which I caught 34 couples getting married by Queen Latifah. It was like one of those strange, “Wizard of Oz”-type dreams that would be hard to explain: “It was the Grammys and Madonna was there… More »
A close friend chose to wear a jumpsuit on her wedding day, and I cannot tell you how elegant she looked standing beside her husband. Not only was she radiant, she was comfortable in an outfit that reflected her personality. Many women do not feel comfortable in gowns, and that is entirely acceptable. With so many beautiful… More »
As far as we’re concerned, there are no rules when it comes to wedding dresses, but seasons can play a key roll in the type of gown a bride considers. Spring and summer brides seek lighter fabrics, like chiffon, and avoid heavy layers. And the cooler weather this time of year allows fall/winter brides to wear… More »
