While many aspects of weddings have become less traditional and cookie-cutter over the years, one convention stubbornly remains: In heterosexual unions, the bride’s parents are still writing the majority of the checks. Is this because the parents of females are somehow magically wealthier? Of course not. It’s because many years ago, before women could own property, they were “given away” into marriage with a dowry, which was essentially a way to pay the groom’s family for taking their daughter off their hands.

There are two types of marriage proposal: the total shocker, and the one you can see coming from miles away, as if it’s traveling on a Goodyear blimp.

Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do in life, which makes wedding planners – who take on all that anxiety with gusto – the embodiment of the calm before the wedding storm. When Chrissy Teigen and John Legend hired wedding planner Lisa Vorce to coordinate what would become one of the most high-profile wedding celebrations of 2013, the seasoned pro found herself dealing with the dream dilemma: The celeb couple was so easygoing that they looked to Vorce to help them build everything from the ground up.

“To design their wedding, I first got to know and understand them (amazing!), then I took a look at the venue (Lake Como – also amazing!),” Vorce says. “From there, I created a ‘mood board’ that was a reflection of the colors, architecture, and topography of Lake Como, along with the vibe of John and Chrissy.

8/24/2017

A ton has been written about how millennials have changed the wedding industry — from skipping traditions that don’t align with their values to opting for smaller but still Instagrammable receptions — but they have also revolutionized the honeymoon industry.

Part of this change may be a result of twenty and thirty-something couples forgoing traditional registries and using apps like Honeyfund to raise money to travel (rather than being saddled with a set of fine china that they’ll never use).

There’s also the fact that millennials are more well-traveled than any other generation, particularly since cheap airfare and sites like Airbnb and Couchsurfing have made it easier to travel the world. So when they get married, the typical honeymoon trope of spending a week at a “romantic” all-inclusive resort just won’t do for many millennials. Instead, they are opting for offbeat and unexpected honeymoon ideas, like the ones below. Continue reading
