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. I have three very different weddings this year and I’m looking forward to each and every one. I enjoy seeing how two people put their unique stamp on the event. As for the bride, I’m always excited to see a friend glowing on her special day. If you’re in the market for a wedding dress, or simply a sucker for a beautiful gown, take our wedding dress personality test! Keep reading »
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.
