9 Brides On Their Something Blue

The Cut

Margaret Rhodes

  1. Sara Blum Sherman, 29

Married: June 2016

“I had been taking dance lessons and scuffed the bottom of my shoes, so painting the bottoms pale blue seemed like a great way to spruce them up for our wedding day and incorporate that tradition. I had it done at our local cobbler on 71st Street.”

  1. Lindsay Peoples Wagner, 27

Married: August 2017

“My mother and my older sister wore this garter on their wedding days. I remember it from when I was 8 or so — I took it out of a white linen drawstring bag on my mother’s dresser and asked her what it was. She didn’t give it to me until my actual wedding day, though.” Continue reading

8 Wedding Etiquette Rules You Can’t Break—Period

Reader’s Digest

Fiona Tapp

ALWAYS RETURN YOUR RSVP

It’s alarming how many guests simply don’t return an RSVP card. Couples base the entire day on their guest count so it really is unacceptable to turn up without notice. ‘Send your RSVP in as soon as possible,’ advises Larissa Banting, wedding specialist and creator of The Lazy Bride Blog. ‘Nothing is more frustrating to a couple than having a number of guests MIA. Once you commit, you have to show up, short of being on death’s door. And don’t forget to write your name on the RSVP card! It’s amazing how many blank cards couples receive and they have no idea who just RSVP’d!’ Ivy Jacobson, planning editor from The Knot warns, ‘Don’t be one of the five percent of guests that sends in their RSVP one week or less before the big day.’ (Find out the etiquette rules every bridesmaid should follow.)

In our Ask the Experts series, New York Weddings gets tips and advice from professionals in disciplines from dress design to elopement planning

Shan-Lyn Ma

CEO and founder of Zola

Zola started as an online registry, but you added some new services this year. Why the expansion?

We noticed people were using six to eight different apps for wedding-planning tasks; we wanted to put them all in one place so you just need one service. We created over 30 wedding website templates that couples can choose from, a guest-list management tool where you can keep track of RSVPs and people’s addresses, and a customizable to-do checklist where you answer a few questions about yourself and then we generate a list of what you need to get done and when.

How To Plan A Wedding In Six Weeks

The Cut

Alexis Cheung

Tips for pulling off a very brief engagement.

The wedding of:  Daniela Lazo-Cedré and Alfred Matérn, plus 50 guests.

Where: The Gramercy Park Hotel.

Why six weeks: “We didn’t want to linger and drive ourselves crazy with details. Plus, Alfred is from Sweden, and his visa was going to expire.”

What they did first: “We picked the date — January 7 — because it gave us time to file our marriage license but was late enough after the holidays that our families’ airfare wasn’t insane. We knew we didn’t want to do City Hall, so we looked for simple ceremonious venues next and landed on the Gramercy Hotel.”

Why the Gramercy Hotel: “We were just lucky. The terrace wasn’t booked, and they even upgraded us to the larger garden space. Plus, after considering catering and chair rentals, it didn’t cost as much time or money as other event spaces. The hotel takes care of a lot of details.”

Who came in handy: “We took up a lot of offers from family and friends who wanted to help. My mom constantly followed up with the hotel and scouted our photographer; my sister found my velvet pumps from Jimmy Choo; my best friend is a florist and event planner and did the arrangements. I wanted some kind of white, aromatic flower, like gardenias or jasmine, but they’re so expensive. She helped me pick a mixture of lilies and green foliage, which is actually really inexpensive. Alfred made a wedding playlist, but his friend also sang for the ceremony.”

How they invited guests: “Until two weeks before, it was a word-of-mouth wedding. We told everyone the date and updated them sporadically; then, once we secured the venue, we sent a Paperless Post.”

How she found her dress“My mom found a minimalist silk dress by Halston online. I was working late, so my sister, who is a similar size, tried it on in their shop on Greene Street. She knew it was the one but set aside other options just in case.”

Every British Royal Wedding Tradition You Need to Know

Brides

Phillip B. Crook

THE PROPOSAL

The Royal Marriages Act of 1772 requires all royal descendants to seek the sovereign’s approval for marriage. But the requirements don’t stop there—the 1701 Act of Settlement prohibits royals from marrying Catholics. Royals may legally wed an atheist or someone of any faith other than Roman Catholicism. The Queen’s eldest grandchild Peter Phillips in 2008, Autumn Kelly converted from Roman Catholicism to Anglicanism so her husband would keep his place as 11th in line for the throne. Soon after Will and Kate’s engagement was announced, officials from Buckingham Palace said the Queen was “absolutely delighted” for the couple, which can only mean she approved of Will’s choice. Sources have also reported that Harry has already asked Her Majesty’s permission to wed Meghan Markle, and the Queen bestowed her blessing. There has been much speculation about Markle’s religious background, and many publications have falsely reported that Markle is Jewish because of a two-year marriage to Trevor Engelson, a Jewish producer, from 2011to 2013. While we’re unsure of Markle’s beliefs, we’re assuming the couple is well aware of the law and we’re hoping it’s a non-issue. Continue reading
