Why Are The Bride’s Parents Still Paying For Most Of The Wedding?

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.

Rachel Zoe has been a bride once – and a bridal stylist

too many times to count – so she knows what it takes to make sure the big day goes off without a hitch. Here are her eight pro tips for a flawless wedding day.

  1. Make sure to carry a snack.

“Definitely keep a little snack in your bag, along with gum and mints. You’re going to be talking to 700 people that night, and you’re not going to eat for many, many, many hours.” Continue reading

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. Depending on how long you’ve been dating—and how much you’ve talked about marriage with your partner—you can probably guess which type of proposal awaits you.

Regardless, even if you can sense that the big question is imminent, it’s not always easy to pinpoint exactly when it’s going down. So unless your fiancé-to-be is a total master at the art of surprise, here are all of the surefire signs you’re about to get a view of him on one knee—so you can prepare accordingly.  Continue reading

6 Unexpected Honeymoon Ideas For Millennials

Hello Giggles

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

It’s not just the ridiculous cost of weddings these days that makes some couple opt to have a small wedding guest list. Whether you live far away from your extended family or simply can’t think of 200+ people you care enough about to invite, small weddings often make more sense.

However, just because your wedding is tiny in size doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t look and feel as glamorous as a bigger shindig. Here are some small wedding ideas that will make your intimate gathering look and feel as special as anything you might see on Pinterest or Instagram. Continue reading

What You Don’t Need at Your Wedding

Legally, all you need for a wedding is a visit to the county clerk’s office, and whatever else your local government requires. (Check here.) Everything else is optional. Of course, some things are more optional than others. Most weddings these days skip the garter toss; many skip the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and some even skip the flowers. What matters is that you pick the right elements to keep making you and your guests happy. Continue reading

What’s Your Signature Wedding Style?

lighting1In my book, The Big White Book of Weddings, I discuss style in detail. Here, in a nutshell, are four bridal styles to consider. Happy self-discovery!

By: David Tutera

One of my first questions to any bride is, “What kind of bride are you and what is your wedding style?” Now, I’m not trying to find out what kind of person you are at work or at home, or what kind of style you’ve followed until now — the fact is, you as a bride may end up learning that you are entirely different from your everyday persona.

The Classic Bride: Traditional Elegance

Your wedding is exactly what every little girl dreams of. The classic bride has a style that is timeless, elegant, rich, ethereal and romantic, and chooses décor that speaks to that. Opulence is a must here. I love filling the room with dripping crystals and florals hung from chandeliers, tall taper candles mixed into luxurious and overabundant floral arrangements, crystal or precious-metal containers that create a focal point for your tablescapes and candles of all sizes clustered on luxurious linens.
