  • 5 Ways NOT to Have a Basic Wedding

    25 May 2015 | 10:03 pm
    Editor’s Note: I’m adding a disclaimer just to say that every wedding is beautiful in its own way because each represents a sacred union of two people in love. That said, many brides and grooms are easily lured in to trends (via Pinterest, friends and media) and industry standards (by wedding planners, magazines, blogs, etc.). These trends and standards often do not add any meaningful beauty to their day … they just keep the status quo going. This post is about rallying against those basic impulses and embracing details that will fully reflect your personalities and love…
  • Italian Honeymoon: Florence, Tuscany, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast

    Today was a HUGE day. I can’t express that enough. When we were planning our trip to Italy, we only booked two things to do. We had our plane tickets and our places to stay through AirBnB, but we only had two activities booked…and they were both on the same day. That day was our full day in Florence, although we spent much of the day outside of Florence with our tour, called Tasty Tuscany through Tuscan Wine Tours. In the morning, we had breakfast at the Strange Uncle and then packed a bag for the day with essentials, then walked 20–25 minutes to the meeting point they had given us.

    Plum and gold, plum and burgundy, or just plain (and perfect) plum. I thank the genius who inspired this beautiful blend of blue and red. Blue is as soothing as floating on your back in warm Hawaiian waters and red is radiant like a freshly picked garden rose, but plum and plum themed weddings steal my breath away. See if you can resist these gold painted goblets and candlesticks brimming with beautiful Black Mission figs, blackberries, plums and purple garden grapes. Rich and romantic!  This fabulous white fondant wedding cake with shiny plum satin ribbons  must be what…

    It is time to embrace your already existing personal brand. Yes, you have a personal brand, even if you have never thought about it before. Even if you think the whole thing personal branding is a bunch of crap. You are a walking, talking, living, breathing personal brand. Head Marketer for Brand YOU “Regardless of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called You.”…
  • Change Your Attitude, Change Your Business

    Christine
    11 May 2015 | 6:00 pm
    I have had this conversation more times than I can count recently. It takes place in a number of different forms, but at the core it is always the same. There is a huge change that you want to have happen in your life. However, you are not willing to change anything yourself in order to make it happen. Then you’re annoyed and frustrated because things didn’t work out for you. Changes? They don’t just happen magically. That may seem really obvious, but if you stop and think about it? How many times have you expected magic changes to take place in your life? In your business?
  • Would You Want to Wear Your Website? Branding Thoughts

    Christine
    13 Apr 2015 | 2:29 pm
    If I took your website and made an outfit out of it, and told you to wear it, would you be willing to put it on? Right now, if I went to my closet and picked out an outfit, there is a very good chance that it would involve me wearing either a black top or something with black & white stripes. I’d then add a colorful scarf for a shot of color in there. My website? Based entirely on those colors in my closet. Matter of fact, in my photo for my avatar? I’m wearing a black & white top – with jeans, and my Kate Spade gold glitter Keds. This website needs more Kate Spade…
  • To the Thin Women of the World – I’m Sorry

    Christine
    2 Apr 2015 | 9:42 am
    I am just going to get this out of the way – I am not at my ideal BMI. I have to shop in the Plus section of the stores most of the time. Ok, I’ll just go ahead and say it. I am … Fat. (Ouch, that was hard.) But that is no excuse for how I have treated you, thin women. Weight is not a competition. There is no “WIN” in comparing myself to you. More importantly, it is not your fault that I am fat. I apologize for all the times that I have said horrible things to you because you are thin. I never noticed this phenomenon until I caught myself saying it to a woman I…

  • One-Stop Bride: Finding My Dress, Part 1

    Miss Puffer
    28 May 2015 | 12:57 pm
    What’s the best part of wedding planning? Many brides, I’d venture to say, would name dress shopping as their activity. Not so with me. Being a plus-size bride, I dreaded the dress-shopping experience. I’d read horror stories about women like me going to the bridal boutique with their friends and family, only to discover none of the dresses fit them. I’m not going to lie: The thought of that happening to me kept me up at nights. So if there are any brides-to-be like me out there reading this, listen up: It wasn’t that bad. I survived and found myself a beautiful dress. Confession…
  • Italian Honeymoon: Capri and Rome

    Mrs. Coral
    28 May 2015 | 11:02 am
    On this particular morning when we woke up, we overwhelmingly did not want to head to Rome. We really preferred the smaller stops on our trip to the big cities and did not want two full days in Rome. I’m sure that some people will think that is crazy, but it’s the truth. Our friend Meghan had to leave for work very early in the morning, so we decided to ride with her to the airport and catch the shuttle to the port, where we could catch a ferry to Capri! It was a last-minute decision to head to the island, but we wanted to do it because we really weren’t thrilled with the idea of…

    28 May 2015 | 10:00 am
    One of the joys of being the editor for this site is getting to know the stories behind the photos; to see how our couples came to be, to see how they tick. When so much of the wedding industry focuses on things, it’s an utter privilege to be able to tap into the human side and celebrate the people we feature. Tori and Nano have a great story and it starts (for us) with the winning of a Nice People contest. Photographer Amanda Summerlin of Amanda Summerlin Photography shares the Tori and Nano experience: Tory and Nano were actually the winners of our 2013 Nice People contest, a contest…

    Today, the idea of having a stylist for even your every day life isn’t such a crazy concept, so of course enlisting one to assist with creating “the most important” look of a ladies’ life seems like a no-brainer. A dozen years ago, however, nothing like a Bridal Stylist existed… the closest you would get would probably be your Kleinfeld sales associate. Julie Sabatino, however, saw a need in the marketplace particularly on the luxury side of the marketplace and The Stylish Bride was born.

    The famous quote is of course, Let the Buyer Beware, but in the wedding business, oftentimes many of us feel the opposite- Let the Seller Beware. As most of us own and operate small businesses vs. large companies or corporations, the relationship we have with our clients can have huge impacts on not only our company’s mental health but also on our bottom lines… time suck clients for instance, can completely ruin your profit margins if they take up a disproportionate amount of time. If only you could know going in that a couple was going to emerge as a “problem” and…

    Nearly twenty years ago, Meredith Waga Perez and her mother Marilyn Waga set out to launch a boutique floral and event business. More than just setting up a shop though, Meredith knew that she wanted to create a brand- more specifically the kind of understated luxury that brands like her formal employer, Calvin Klein embodied. No on in the floral and event space was really communicating that message and Meredith saw the chance for their brand, Belle Fleur New York, to fill that space. From a “technically” speaking standpoint in floral terms, Belle Fleur developed a signature style…

I get to see how they work, where they struggle, what their walls are, what their hesitations are, and I also get to share resources that I think will help them improve. Because of all the support I provide, I also like to receive feedback on myself as a mentor, what I offered, and what I provided to make sure that the internships I offer are of the highest value.  Brian…

    Before I was a photographer, I just couldn't wrap my head around why I looked SO different in other people's photos than I thought I looked like in real life.  I felt like no matter who took photos of me, it was never the same person in the photo than who I was used to seeing in the mirror or in selfies!  If you feel this way, you're absolutely right, but it's because you actually never get to see yourself as the world sees you until you look at a photograph.  Scene & a most unflattering portrait from Garbo Dreams by Lauren LoGiudice You aren't crazy, or abnormal…

    As an architectural photographer, I occasionally get requests for aerial views of properties.  The only problem is that most of these requests are coming from individual property owners or small businesses who can't afford the highest quality imagery that comes from a helicopter or cherry picker option.  In some cases, even if they could afford it, certain tightly constructed urban areas make it very difficult to get a specific elevation with either of these methods.  Enter: drone photography.  Depending on the model, drone photography becomes a more affordable, albeit…

    Lina knew that Mario was the one for her on their very first date, so it seems only fitting that choosing their wedding venue came down to love at first sight too. They were immediately smitten with The Glen Venue after attending a friend’s wedding there during their dating days, and once they were the ones with a wedding on the horizon, there was no question where their rustic, romantic celebration would take place. Lina and Mario loved it so much, they did their engagement session there too, adding one more layer of sweet memories to this special place! Thank you so much to J. Layne…

    While they might have hit a little bump in the road when they first met (be sure to read their interview to get my silly pun!), Monica and Jerrod’s wedding day was as sweet as their amaretto cake. Together with their planner, Meagan Warren, and the talented team at Fern, Monica and Jerrod took the blank space of 701 Whaley and turned it into a pretty, preppy celebration full of pink dogwoods and puffy peonies. I love the juxtaposition of the renovated industrial building and the feminine details! Thanks to Joshua Aaron for sending this striped day our way! How did y’all meet? Tell…

Ellie and Nick worked with their florist, Botanica, to take the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts from a monochromatic museum into a romantic reception full of lush blooms, and of course, lots of Southern details! During their wedding planning, they not only focused on planning for their marriage, but on being hospitable and throwing a party guests would enjoy just as much as they did.

    Valerie and Alex took to the Rhode Island coast for their engagement session but decided to shake things up by dressing a bit more black tie than beachy and the results are sublime.

  • 5 Ways NOT to Have a Basic Wedding

    Sarah
    25 May 2015 | 10:03 pm
    Editor’s Note: I’m adding a disclaimer just to say that every wedding is beautiful in its own way because each represents a sacred union of two people in love. That said, many brides and grooms are easily lured in to trends (via Pinterest, friends and media) and industry standards (by wedding planners, magazines, blogs, etc.). These trends and standards often do not add any meaningful beauty to their day … they just keep the status quo going. This post is about rallying against those basic impulses and embracing details that will fully reflect your personalities and love…

And when we heard that her sister Beyonce placed those baby flowers in her hair in the morning so that they could bloom in her hair over the course of her wedding day, we died even more. Flowers are the oldest and most natural adornment for hair. They represent creation and a new beginning.

Of course, Gerrick wore a sword, and Cera had a beautiful corset made by her sister. But my jaw dropped when I saw that all their guests dressed to the nines for a Renaissance Faire wedding. We've got a jester and a knight and… is it weird that my favorites are the older ladies dressed in elaborate gowns and hats? Hell, that's what I want to wear when I'm 60.

    When you both crave and live for an adventure, it is only apt for your wedding to be non-traditional – the outdoors. I love how the nature’s lush made to be part in this wedding, the tall trees, and green grass were already a perfect “decor” or backdrop. While looking at Molly and Brandon’s wedding all I can think about is how seemingly lovely everything was. They cleverly thought that the perfect motif to go for would be red since it is an excellent contrast to the nature’s color. And though the reception was indoors they put wildflowers in vases as…

Yes, you may want that most beautiful and expensive dress on your wedding day but let’s be honest you’re only going to wear it ones. After the wedding, it will just be in a closet collecting dust. There are a lot of up and coming designers that sell beautiful dresses for a “reasonable” price. But sometimes no matter how “reasonable” it is it could be too much. But wait, there is…

Make sure to send out invitations six weeks to a month in advance so that the host has enough time to get RSVPs and plan accordingly. Also if you are having a small destination wedding and not a lot of guests can make it, you can invite them to the bridal shower. Although they cannot make it to the wedding, they might love to be part of this event. Lastly, make sure the host is greeting guests and…

We stayed in Fira for five days and explored the entire island, from Oia to the light house at the opposite tip.” “In Athens we stayed at The Athens Gate Hotel for just a night, it has a roof bar that overlooks the Acropolis which was pretty awesome. In Mykonos we stayed at The Deluxe Mykonian Ambassador Hotel which overlooks the water, has a beautiful pool, and was located in…

    I've been looking through the photos I took last month and tying myself in knots trying to write about what we did and how we felt and how we got on with our first few weeks in France. But the crux of it is that the first couple of weeks here were hard. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times - we weren't in London, there was limitless wine and cheese and we were beautifully looked after by Nye's parents but I was lonely and worried and completely fucking useless.The girls are I were here and Nye was still in London and we missed him more than we ever imagined we would.

    Espresso, by Christopher Reid.Little cup of melancholy,inch-deep well of the blackestconcentrate of brown,it comes to your table without ceremonyand stands there shudderingback to an inner repose.Pinch it: it's still hot.Soon, its mantle of bubblesclears, but the eye –all pupil, lustreless –remains inscrutable.Rightly so. This is your dailycommunion with nothingness,the nothingness within things.Not to be sipped, it's a slug,a jolt: one mouthful, then gone,of comforting tarry harshness.Which you carry now as a pledgeat the tongue's dead centre,and the palate's, blessedby both the…

    Villeneuvette (A quick link to the new shop is on the right hand sidebar on the blog. Or here.) When I came across those little boxes of prints that I hadn't sold and put them on etsy I was reminded of how nice it is to send my photographs out into the world, to see my pictures as physical objects, to hear that people like them enough to exchange them for money and to know that they will be enjoyed for more than the 15 seconds it takes to skim a blog post. I was also reminded however of what a total pain in the tits wrapping, packaging, labeling and posting things is, and that was…

I don't quite believe it.It is the Spring Holiday so W&P have been off school for two weeks. I'm sick, I have a vile virus that has left me completely useless. I have done nothing for weeks. It has stopped being relaxing and started being stressful and depressing.It's asparagus season. I think asparagus is alright but I don't entirely understand it.All of France smells of wisteria and lilacs.This is our local place to walk and play and go to the organic market on a Tuesday night. I've never seen anywhere more French. Four weeks ago it was really…

    2 Apr 2015 | 1:51 am
    It always surprises me how quickly I can settle into a routine, even in the most unfamiliar circumstances. I'm someone who likes to know what's coming next, and when I don't know on an existential level it helps to know on a day to day scale.I had half hoped that as soon as I got to France I would have an epiphany, that the clouds would clear and I would start to have a feeling for what the next steps would be. HA! If anything the clouds have thickened and I've spent the last eleven days in a complete fog of cotton-wool brain and treacle limbs. Despite the epic and inexplicable hangover I…

Meagan traveled to South Africa during her veterinary training and became enchanted by protea, so incorporating the exotic bloom was close to her heart. Maritime accents such as rope and…

And if you're lucky enough to live in Indiana you'll see these sweet scented flowers near hills and highways from Columbus to Crown Point and Lawrence to West Lafayette. So many, in fact, they adopted it as their state flower in 1957.

  • how to cancel your wedding …

    19 May 2015 | 8:35 am
    This week’s breaking news in the wedding world, is Bristol Palin (daughter of Sarah Palin) has cancelled her wedding for May 23, 2015. She did so, only four days away. First, let me say, canceling her wedding is very courageous of her. At this point, everything is already paid for, so refunds aren’t an option. The family announced that they are going to have a party to “celebrate life”. I agree!!! Don’t let those stuff mushrooms go to waste! Now you may think, SURE the Palin’s can cancel their wedding, they have got a lot of money. Listen, we’ve…

In case you think it’s a fluke, here’s another one: photo credit: IQvideography The urge to break that iPad into a zillion pieces is overwhelming. Here’s the PSA to all wedding guests: While anyone can appreciate your zeal to capture a photo, the dear wedding couple who invited you to share their wedding day want you to be a guest, not the photographer or film maker.

When I read back on earlier posts, I cringe. But nine years later, I think I got it figured out. I love to educate and write!

    There are lots of ideas where to put your wedding rings before you walk down the aisle. One of our clients actually had a small little safe, (with the actual rings in it) and the older ring bearer (or “ring security”) walked them down the aisle! Aren’t they precious? here are your tips: do … Leave them in the pretty boxes until you need them and in a secure location. Get them out until just before the ceremony.

    I have this fascination with how people hold hands that I picked up from Jeff. We used to write each other letters during our senior year of high school, and he once told me you know you’ve found the one by how your hands fit together. And while I now think that he mostly just said that so he could hold my hand (haha), it kind of stuck around in my head. It’s a small and innocent gesture, but you can read so much from it. I like it best when they find each other and intertwine with ease, fingers falling seamlessly into place like it’s their natural state, like every minute…

Photographs that make me look twice, not to marvel at how elaborately they were orchestrated, but because they were real, because I found some measure of stillness in them, and because they moved me. My husband took this portrait the other day, and I can’t get it out of my head. This was Isa hours before her wedding.

    I remember like it was yesterday how, as a little girl, I would sneak into my mom’s high heels and try them on, fooling around and imagining I was a posh lady. And even more distinctly I can recall the day when my mom got me my very first pair of (what at that time I considered to be) high heels: finally, my own young-lady shoes! It was like raising my head from childhood for the first time and exploring a premature form of femininity. That protoadolescence moment has helped define the woman that is now writing these lines, as I then discovered my affinity towards fashion and care for…

    So it is your special day, and you want everything to be completely perfect; the beautiful dress, the perfect setting, the colorful flowers…..even the perfume. Will you choose to go with a perfume that is light and floral, with a tones that represent the summer, or will you go with a fragrant and strong scent that makes you see the world through more mature eyes? Perfumes with citrusy scents tend to do better in spring or summer settings, whereas perfumes with dank woody or savory vanilla tones feel like a blanket wrapped around you during a winter day. There are so many different options.

Oh well and the obvious nerve wrecking search for a dress and the perfect, most comfortable heels to go rocking on the dance floor. “What type of heels should I wear at my friend’s wedding?” Is the question I’ve been asking myself for the past few days after I bought my dress, without considering the issue of shoe picking.

    Miley

    It comes a moment in the planning of a wedding when a bride reaches the point in which she starts asking different questions about her makeup. Do I really need a makeup or should I go for something natural? So I do it myself or should I hire a professional makeup artist? Should I choose an airbrushed makeup or should I choose the traditional makeup. All these questions need an answer and the best way to take a correct decision is by doing a little bit of research. The first thing you should know is that no matter what type of makeup you choose, it has its very own characteristics and rules.

    28 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    One of the major fringe benefits of working with insanely talented planners-slash-stylists (like Bash Please!) is the fact that they can help you create a clear visual direction for your day right off the bat. For Lauren + Adam, the first thing the Bash team did was create an amazing inspiration board that got everything started and made the design process that much easier. And we recommend this as a starting point for everyone, whether you’re a DIY bride or working with a planner. It helps so much to get create a clear vision for the celebration.

    First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the realization of all of the traditions that come with it. From wearing white to tossing the bouquet and cutting the cake, there are many “rules” that brides and grooms are expected to follow on their wedding day, some dating back to the 14th century! Let’s take a look at some of them: Brides began wearing white on their wedding day after Queen Victoria donned a white gown in 1840. She wanted to have some lace — a prized possession — incorporated into her gown. The garter/bouquet toss is a very superstitious…

    The Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia was a dream come true.  Just as I imagined, stepping through the doors of the grand entrance was much like stepping back in time.  As An Artist at The Greenbrier I felt like I was walking hallowed halls.  Grand lives had been lived in these spaces and finally I had become a small part of the spirit of The Greenbrier. I literally spent four days walking the property, lingering in every room, peeking into ballrooms and sketching while perched on countless overstuffed, floral print chairs.  I went outside once friends, just once.  Thanks…

It was on Heidi’s birthday when Stephen called asking for her, but alas, she wasn’t there. Heidi’s coworker told her who had called and continued to gush about…

    Some people may not want a wedding cake so beautifully crafted, it becomes too much a work of art, and guests will prefer to gaze, and be reluctant to eat and enjoy it. Then again, a bride doesn’t even need to venture into “bridezilla” territory to want to have her cake and eat it too. And, for that matter, she wants to have her guests eat cake. And if the bride wants a completely complicated cake of her own design, then so be it.

    admin
    27 Apr 2015 | 2:15 pm
    According to Las Vegas 4 Newbies, over 100,000 couples are wed in the city’s chapels every year. The city might be infamously known for spontaneous marriages that end up getting annulled after a month or so, but the truth about Vegas is that it’s actually quite a romantic city to get hitched in. Imagine exchanging vows on a Tuscan balcony in the Bellagio or saying “I do” while overlooking the valley from the observation deck of the Stratosphere Hotel. If it hadn’t been for the rising popularity of online casinos, wedding packages at casinos probably wouldn’t be as expensive as…

    24 May 2015 | 9:01 pm
    1. Make Up The use of bronzer to contour the face can create more angles on the face. Especially when done around the cheeks and chin, this careful shading can make you look up to five pounds lighter. A tan (real or faux) diminishes blemishes like veins, cellulite, and brown spots that break up the clean lines of your arms and legs. This creates a longer, sleeker silhouette and it also makes your skin glow. 2. Body wear Body shape wear can slenderize the figure and make your dress fit more smoothly over your body. It is recommended that you wear shape wear to your fittings. 3. Drink Up…

    Not every girl wants to wear white on their big day but it can be so difficult to find really cool alternatives.

    I’ll never forget the day I met Amber.  I had arrived on a flight to West Palm Beach for a luxury wedding industry conference with plans to share a room with three other women I had never met.  One of those women was Amber Housley.  From the moment I met Amber, I knew I liked her.  She was driven, intuitive, and kind.  A great steward of her time, Amber somehow managed a 9-5 corporate job; an event planning, design, and stationery business; being a mom and wife; and pulling it all off in a colorful frock, pearly white smile, and perfect hair.  Was this lady for real? Well, yes.

Johan and Julia bumped into each other one night at a pizza shop in Alabama while Johan was studying in the states, and things took off from there. Johan eventually moved back to his home country of Sweden, so fast-forward past those years of long-distance Skype chats between Sweden and the US, and Johan decided to once again move across the Atlantic to join Julia in the States. They opted for a traditional Swedish celebration at Tyresö Slott just outside of Stockholm on a sunny summer day. Friends and family…

    It was a wet one. Emma and Jonny wed while standing in the sea on the western shores of Scotland. Their family and friends huddled around them under a canopy of umbrellas. Endearing stories generally have something unexpected within them. The walloping rain played the “unexpected” role in this story, although it didn’t seem to get anyones spirits down at all.

Candice and Johannes flew in from Canada to enjoy the stunning scenery of Johannes’ home town, Bad Gastein in the Austrian Alps, but the weather gods wanted otherwise.

    Toronto, Ontario. The Big Smoke. Robyn and Cam’s Toronto wedding from The Berkeley Fieldhouse was our first venture into Ontario, and it all happened because of an Okanagan wedding some years ago. Robyn’s sister Stephanie had her wedding in Penticton, BC a few years back, and we were there for that. Fast forward a couple years, and many familiar faces were all gathered again. We left Penticton hoping to see all these people again, and Toronto left the same feeling. A great group of people, and hopefully Stephanie and Robyn have more siblings in the pipeline for weddings.

    Bobette Kyle
    12 May 2015 | 6:13 am

Chances are, however, you’ve envisioned a “personality” for your wedding that must also remain intact. Scroll down for ideas on how to accomplish both.

    One of the most overwhelming parts of making your wedding decisions is what others think you should do. A common line of reasoning is “do it this way because that’s the way it’s done.” Well, times change and “non-traditions” flourish in this age of individuality.

    One would think “all” means–well, all— when buying an all inclusive wedding package. Unfortunately, the definition varies for each venue. If you are not wary, your final cost may vary substantially from what you expected. To avoid sticker shock be sure to have a detailed conversation about what is (and is not) included in your package price and any additional fees that may apply. Also, read the contract carefully and ask questions about gray areas. … more...

    Whoever said rain on your wedding day is good luck wasn’t lying! Jennifer and Randy got married at the regal Brantwyn Estate on a summer day, and at one point, they had to decide whether their ceremony would take place outdoors, as originally planned, or safely indoors. The storm lightning alarm at the nearby DuPont Country Club was not very encouraging, but they decided to go all-in and chase their dream of having an outdoor garden wedding ceremony. They didn’t let the weather phase them one bit, and the end result was a surreally beautiful wedding celebration! Bartlett Pair…

I’ll let you research or watch the movie to learn more about Alan Turing’s remarkable, extraordinarily influential, but depressingly short life. Apart from sitting in awe at Alan’s work I finished the movie with so much sadness over Alan’s final years.

Short answer: no. Long answer: in Australia, not at all. Until 1975 not sleeping with your husband or wife was grounds for decree of nullity, but since then the grounds for an annulment in Australia are fairly minimal.

    If there's an issue so critical such as whether a woman will take her husband's last name after marriage, it's holding onto the last name or making a decision to drop it off after divorce. It's an issue that most divorced folks talk about especially if the man keeps on complaining that the ex-wife has stuck to the name and has refused to drop it off even after remarrying. Chances are that the two divorcees might not be seeing eye to eye and apart from discussing their kids, if any; communication is minimized across the board. The man might end up being irritated that the ex-wife is still…

    Name change is a legal process where a person adopts a new name distinct from their name of adoption, marriage or birth. Depending on the jurisdiction, the ease and procedures of name change really vary. Across the United States, changing names is regulated by State laws. If you're not changing your name as a result of marriage, or your name change preference (marriage or not) isn't allowed, you'll have to undergo a court petitioned name change which will involve publishing your name change in the newspaper. Normally, anyone can adopt the name they desire. In fact, by 2009, about 46 states…

It also acted as a sort of bouquet-toss; little girls in attendance gathered up the grains for good luck in finding their own happy marriages. Many cultures have adopted a similar tradition, often substituting rice. Would you like to be showered with something festive at your wedding?

While there perhaps aren’t as many obvious decisions in the area of what the groom will wear – no strapless/halterneck/sleeves dilemmas here – it is essential that he looks his best and is in every way the perfect match for his beautiful bride.

    1. Make Up The use of bronzer to contour the face can create more angles on the face. Especially when done around the cheeks and chin, this careful shading can make you look up to five pounds lighter. A tan (real or faux) diminishes blemishes like veins, cellulite, and brown spots that break up the clean lines of your arms and legs. This creates a longer, sleeker silhouette and it also makes your skin glow. 2. Body wear Body shape wear can slenderize the figure and make your dress fit more smoothly over your body. It is recommended that you wear shape wear to your fittings. 3. Drink Up…

    The concept of asset sharing has been visibly rampant in the Indian society as sports grounds are a favourite of religious groups to hold meetings and propagate their agenda. Even in rural areas, farmers rent out their barren lands for marriage functions and similar ceremonies to make extra cash in the off season.

  • Western Wedding Rings in the Western World

    Shannon
    17 May 2015 | 9:53 pm
    When a couple is getting married, the wedding rings are usually an afterthought – or at best, just one more item on a checklist. The engagement ring is the big ticket item. It’s the jewelry that brides dream about, and that grooms have to find a way to finance over time. On the other hand, simple wedding bands are easy to find online, relatively inexpensive, and rarely “shown off” to family and friends. For that reason, plain gold bands are by far the most common western wedding rings, with millions of them sold every year. But they’re certainly not the only popular style. A number…

    There are few things in life more difficult to figure out than the “rules” that apply to weddings.  It’s perhaps toughest to know what’s proper when it comes to giving presents. Here’s a brief look at current-day wedding gift etiquette. What To Give Many wonder whether it’s acceptable to give cash or checks. The answer, according to the Emily Post Institute, is definitely “yes.” However, customs do vary in different regions, so cash may be more welcome in some areas than others. If you’re planning on giving something tangible, it’s best to stick with the items listed in…

    It often seems that guys have all the fun during the week before a wedding. All they have to worry about is getting their tuxes, while women have a million little details to take care of. Meanwhile, the groom gets to have an epic bachelor party; the bride is usually lucky if she can spend a few quiet hours with her best friends under the guise of a party. Things don’t have to be that way – there are a lot of great bachelorette party ideas that let a woman have just as much fun as her husband-to-be before the big day. Of course, females can celebrate the same way many of their male…

But as much as I love "Twist & Shout" and "YMCA," in my very Mexican experience, those songs were not what I was used to hearing when one of my hundred or so cousins got married.DJs at Mexican weddings certainly have their own arsenal of go-to canciones to pack the dance floor, from huapangos to cumbias, rancheras y más.

    It’s safe to say that there are very few things left once your wedding day is all over. While the food eventually gets eaten and the flowers start to wilt, photography and videography are two of biggest keepsakes you have once it’s all said and done.For this reason, I can’t recommend hiring the best your budget will allow. This is never an area to “cut corners” if it means something special to you and I always tell all of my couples to invest wisely in their photographer and videographer teams. Because of this, the value they give to their clients and about a…
  • The Sweetheart Cake Trend of 2015

    Danielle Pasternak
    29 Apr 2015 | 4:00 am
    With the start of each new wedding season, it’s easy to see what trends will be more popular in our Eastern Pennsylvania area. This year is definitely the year of the “Sweetheart Cake”. A sweetheart cake is more of a “catchy” term, but it’s basically a smaller cake that is just shared between the couple. Often, it’s used for the cake cutting ceremony and then other desserts or treats are served to the guests.Photos from Pinterest: left, middle, rightFirst of all, we have to disclaimer and say that you absolutely do not have to have a wedding cake.

    We’ve talked about wedding rehearsals before. Back in 2012 (WHAT?!), we talked about the 12 Steps to Smooth and Efficient Wedding Rehearsal and in 2013, we talked about some tips for Planning for your Wedding Rehearsal.

    I still remember the day I first met Raven and her mom Diane in my residential studio. Their wedding planner, Tracy Adams with Adams and Events reached out to me to arrange the meeting. They had already made arrangements to have the ceremony at the Church of Christ in Raleigh and their Prestonwood Country Club wedding reception in Cary. One of the things that stood out to me was the talk about the relationship between Raven and her dad. Being a father of two princesses myself, I secretly ate this all up! Well, that beautiful sunny October day came and I finally had the opportunity to meet…

    Last year was an amazing year of firsts. In December 2014, Munaluchi held their first Coterie Retreat at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, FL. One of the events that garnered my excitement was the inaugural Munaluchi Coterie Design Challenge. With Coterie talent from across the country converging at such an awesome venue, I was expecting the Challenge to be beyond elaborate. I immediately threw my name in the hat and sought to build a team. I reached out to Monica Noa of Nouveau Events who readily agreed and began putting a plan together.

    After your awesome wedding day has come (and gone), it’s time for a well-deserved break. In fact, while a wedding is the best day of most people’s lives, it is also the most stressful.   If you don't have the time, or possibly the savings, to destress with a honeymoon then mini-moons make the perfect post-wedding break!

    Earlier RSVPs were not in trend so, the weddings used to end up with oodles of wastage on money and food. But, with the passage of time RSVP cards became a call of the minute.

Sending Wedding RSVP Cards is surely an astonishing idea to get timely replies from your guests. Above all, these cards serve various other purposes as well such as getting information about the songs preferred, dine choice, dietary preference, personal notes, any other…
