Looking for a classic wedding band that will also help prevent a “You forgot, didn’t you?” fight on your anniversary every year for all eternity? You might want to check out Alaska Jewelry’s new Remember Ring, which includes a small heating element that heats to 120 degrees 24 hours before your anniversary. It’s like a string tied around your finger, except it hurts (well, according to the company, the ring gets “hot enough to cause discomfort but not hot enough to burn”). If that first flare-up is not enough to jog your memory, the ring continues heating every hour on the hour for the rest of the day, which gives you plenty of time to get to the florist and buy a bouquet. This annual burning reminder of your love doesn’t come cheap: a Remember Ring will set you back $760, but hey, it’s a small price to pay for marital bliss, right? [psfk]

Where did all the toilet paper go?

Cheap Chic Weddings announced Mimoza Haska as the winner of their ninth annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest on Thursday.

Congratulations to the southern hairdresser and stylist extraordinaire. The way you spun those 16 rolls of Charmin into a strapless, asymmetrical matrimonial gown is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. No, really.

Haska and the other two finalists were judged in New York City’s RK Bridal by Project Runway alum Kate Pankoke. Keep reading »

9 Pinterest Wedding DIYs You Can Repurpose For Real Life

As a happily single lady, Pinterest can leave me feeling a little, well, left out. Amongst the $700 heels I lust after from afar and that spaetzle recipe I swear I’l get around to making, there’s one major recurring  theme that has nothing to do with me at all: WEDDINGS!

Wedding dresses. Wedding updos. Wedding invitations. Wedding cakes. Wedding bouquets. Wedding place settings. Wedding shoes. Wedding makeup. Wedding floral arrangements. Wedding photos. It feels like an alternate universe and my (calligraphied, duh) invitation to visit is lost in the mail. But I look. Oh, yeah. I look. And I repin roaring ’20s style gowns and bouquets of purple roses, too. (Not in a scary “she doesn’t even have a boyfriend but she’s planned her whole wedding” way, I promise!)

And it’s come to my attention that there are a lot of wedding DIYs on Pinterest that are “wedding” in name only. I’ve gathered up a few that are perfect for Sunday brunch or a walk down the aisle. Help keep the mason jar industry in business!

Are wedding gifts necessary?

After our wedding, when my husband and I finally got around to opening our gifts and noting who gave what for our thank you cards, we became concerned that a bunch of our wedding gifts might have been stolen. About a third of the 150 guests who attended our wedding did not appear to have given a gift — that seemed a little odd. However, I was aware that wedding etiquette says that you have up to a year after a wedding to give a gift, so I didn’t put too much worry into it. After our wedding, a number of friends and family members contacted us with questions like, “Where are you registered?” and “What is your mailing address?” I answered all their inquiries, but strangely never received gifts of any sort from any of the people who asked.

I’ve never had a wedding. I’ve never planned a wedding. I’ve never even helped plan a wedding. But, as a 30-something, I’ve been attending weddings regularly for the last decade and I think it’s time for me tell about-to-tie-the-knot couples the truth: the things your guests care about (open bar! music!) and the details you’re stressing over (favors! the selected reading at your ceremony!) are completely different. If you were considering making your guests pay for drinks, may I recommend that you skip the embossed matchbooks and focus on what’s important here: ENDLESS CHAMPAGNE. Not that the wedding is for the guests, but just in case you were wondering, here are some things your guests will/won’t remember about your big day: Keep reading »
