Which Wedding Planning App Is The Best?

Going into wedding planning, I already know what a lot of my proclivities are as a bride — partially because I’m a neurotic planner, and partially because, well, I’ve done this before. You live, you learn.

Watch This Cute Kid Dance With Himself At A Wedding

Little Harlan’s aunt and uncle may have been the center of attention at their wedding, but Harlan brought the real party. When the urge to boogie struck, he wasn’t about to wait around for a dance partner to break out the moves all on his own. If only I could be as fierce as him…

Hitched 2.0: 10 Questions To Ask Potential Photographers

In my personal opinion, photography is one of the very most important aspects of the wedding (after the actual getting married thing, of course). Flowers will wilt, candles will be extinguished, and the music will stop—but the pictures are forever. They’re one of the few lasting, tangible things you’ll have from your big day, so…

Hitched 2.0: 7 Guests You Encounter At Every Wedding

We still have seven months until our wedding, but I can’t help but wonder about our guests: how they’ll act, what their reactions will be, how they’ll get along.

Hitched 2.0: 10 Questions To Ask A Potential Venue

When we started venue-hunting, we had literally no clue what we were doing. On the outside, we tried to appear to be a sophisticated, knowledgeable couple touring each potential venue.

Hitched 2.0: Why Both My Parents Will Walk Me Down the Aisle

I’m not one of those girls who started planning her wedding before even hitting puberty. I didn’t create a pre-engagement “Someday…” Pinterest board. Nothing against those girls, but it wasn’t for me. I wanted to wait to plan my wedding until it was a real, tangible thing. (Not to mention, my tastes change on such…

Study: The Cost Of Your Wedding & Engagement Ring Can Predict Divorce

A study conducted by economists at Emory University found that the amount of money spent on a couple’s wedding and engagement can pretty accurately predict whether divorce is on the horizon.

In September 2012, Alexis and Steve Epsey celebrated their wedding at Marineland Dolphin Adventure in St. Augustine, Florida (my former home!), and when their photos were taken, a few surprise guests popped into the shots.

I’m Seriously Obsessed With This Anne Of Green Gables-Inspired Wedding Photo Shoot

Anne of Green Gables remains one of my favorite books of all time (I love the entire L.M. Montgomery series, though I wish Anne-with-an-E didn’t end up being saddled with quite so many children, but I digress) and growing up, I watched the PBS movie adaptation more times than I could possibly count. My best…

Update: Baby Face and I are moving full steam ahead, getting together as often as possible and still having amazing sex (with only a brief hiatus during Aunt Flo’s visit), which is why it’s so typical that one of my exes resurfaced— looking all handsome like he popped right out of a J.Crew catalogue— and…
