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 the wedding because they didn’t look bad, they blended right in.” She had the hotel remove them, and that was that—until she later sat down to go through the wedding pictures and video “and realized that they were all over the media.” Read more on Newser…
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.
I was lucky enough to be invited to David’s Bridal and Zac Posen’s fall previews and I have to say the dresses were stunning. As a married woman, I found myself pining to get married all over again just because of the all the potential fashion moments! Then Katie kicked me in the shin and told me to leave some wedding dresses for the single ladies.
Unfortunately many of our favorites won’t be available until Fall 2014, but here are some examples of our favorite dress trends.
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 with their exes, but the next statistic I’m about to lay on you makes this whole thing a little more scandalous.

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 party, looking for lots of really lacy shit on Etsy, etc. I’m a pro. But along with your run-of-the-mill bridesmaid duties comes the waves of emotion that go hand-in-hand with the roller coaster of being a wedding wing woman.
If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, this may seem familiar. If you haven’t, prepare yourself. Keep reading »
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 positive programing … such as biking.” That’s how she met her strong but silent partner of 15 years, Steele Spokes, who she’s getting hitched to on March 2nd in a Luau-themed wedding.

Who needs a guestbook when you have artistic portraits of all your wedding guests? That’s what film director Suzi Yoonessi and her fiancé Spencer Crossland were wondering as they planned their wedding at the famously colorful Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, where every room is a unique experience. As an unusual gift to their guests, they arranged for photographer Jonathan Grassi to take fine art portraits of everyone in their rooms. Some guests even brought costumes to go with the themes of their rooms. The resulting album, entitled “The Madonna Inn” is a refreshing way to celebrate the guests as much as the bride and groom, and more importantly, it ensured that everyone left with a wedding favor they would truly never forget. No embossed matchbooks for these guests, high art only.
Click through to a few of the arresting images from Yoonessi and Crossland’s January nuptials. Starting with this portrait of the bride and groom all cuddled up in the Carin Room. [Jonathan Grassi] [Photos: Jonathan Grassi]
