Let’s be honest, being on both sides of the bridesmaid game can be super annoying. It’s hard to say no when a friend asks you to be part of her special day and before you’ve even marked the date on your calendar, you’ve been asked to spend $1,000 on an awful burgundy dress and gold… More »
Healthy people aren’t just the happy ones — they’re now the married ones. And if you thought that a significant other was more woe than it was worth, turns out you were painfully mistaken because a mate won’t just keep you happy; they’ll keep you living longer, too.

If brides were to toss kittens into the crowd for all the single ladiez, I would actually make an effort to grab it. Bouquets, on the other hand, are best handled with a subtle side-step away from whatever direction they’re going in. No cats were harmed in the making of this meme, but it does… More »
If you are a bride, you pose for a lot of photos.
You pose for photos to announce your engagement. You pose for photos at your bachelorette party. You pose for photos at your shower. You pose for photos with your groom-to-be, and with your best friends, and with your family, and with… More »
I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drum. Whether it’s what I write about, the clothes I wear, or the choices I’ve made in my career, I’m not one to do things a certain way just because that’s how everyone else does it.

Wedding toasts from the best man usually include a few awkward references to things the groom did while drunk in college, and maybe a couple groan-worthy jokes acquired via a “wedding toast jokes” Google search. Most wedding toasts do not include silver spandex and a shockingly catchy original 80s techno song, and they certainly don’t… More »
Pass the tissues, please. When Fred Evans, a father of four, found out he had cancer shortly after enduring a double lung transplant, he was given only a few months to live. He knew that if and when his two unmarried daughters chose to tie the knot, he likely wouldn’t be there to give them… More »
The New York Times Vows column is truly one of a kind. Week after week, the meet-cute stories land all over the spectrum, from the truly romantic to the strangely political to, very frequently, the totally twee and bizarrely short-sighted. To wit: this week’s tale, titled “Found, A Soul Mate,” which regales the romance of… More »
It all started with wedding picks.
I was cruising a wedding decorations website looking for garlands and lanterns when I came across something called “wedding picks.” What are wedding picks, you ask? Unclear. Are they toothpicks that go in your pigs in a blanket at the reception? Doodads for your bridal bouquet? Who… More »
Many modern brides can’t imagine planning a wedding without Pinterest. They can gleefully pin every detail of their romantic union, from quirky announcements to wedding hairstyles to retro appetizers to the engraved mason jar favors, but as Lexi Petronis recently mentioned over at Glamour’s Save The Date blog, wedding photographers are not as excited about… More »
Every week, one couple is lucky enough to get prime real estate in the Vows section, the New York Times’ wedding announcement page, where their romance is told in a long story, and friends and family contribute adorable anecdotes. I’ve read about many a bride and groom (or bride and bride, or groom and groom),… More »

Most people feel less conflicted about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan than they do about buying anything, anything at J.Crew. The land of the $49.50 T-shirt is a land most of us can only afford to visit — if we can even control our rageface at their excruciatingly painful combination of cute clothes and… More »
That awkward moment when you stand up as the bride starts walking down the aisle, expecting a weepy wedding processional, and instead she bumps and grinds her way through “Crazy Bitch,” a Buckcherry song that was on the “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder” movie soundtrack. … More »

Six bridesmaids seems like a lot. Eight? Ten? Twelve? Now you’re really pushing it. But no bride in the history of pushing it has pushed it quite like Katie Dalby, 26, of the UK, who married with 80 bridesmaids by her side. Eighty. Eight-zero. … More »
Kadie Walsh and Dake Schmidt are both super outdoorsy people who make their living as fishing guides in Alaska. When they decided to get married, it was obvious right off the bat that a traditional church wedding wasn’t an option.
