In planning each of our weddings, we realized that we actually didn't want to have a bridal party. And so we opted not to. Like many wedding traditions, this one is not for everyone -- and that's okay.
Okay brides and grooms: the holiday season is upon us and whether you have a ring on it yet (or not), it will soon be time for YOU to pop the question to your bridesmaids. I see this as the perfect opportunity to curl up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa, take out that glue gun, and get to work.
Being chosen as a bridesmaid is a real honor, but the pressure to throw your newly-hitched BFF, sister, cousin or special person in your life a memorable bridal shower can be the source of a lot of stress.
Sometimes brides and grooms want to do the strangest things for unusual reasons, and it's my job to make it happen. But a 30-year-old ring bearer, or an overgrown 12-year-old girl in a tutu tossing petals isn't always a good idea, despite your best intentions.
While the bride is traditionally the center of attention during the wedding, she should still remember to be gracious and consider the feelings of others during the planning process and even on her big day.
Any bride who's stayed up until 2 a.m. trying to pick the perfect font for her wedding invitations can probably relate to Kelly Clarkson, who just announced that she's scrapping her elaborate wedding and eloping instead.
Well this is a bridal party! Unable to say "no" to all of her nearest and dearest, Katie Dalby, who married fireman Norman Gooch in Harwich, Essex, last Saturday, walked down the aisle with a staggering 80 bridesmaids in tow.
Don't have a date? Don't fret! Going solo as a bridesmaid has tons of benefits -- many of which might make your fellow attendants with dates a little jealous! From paying less to partying more, there are plenty of reasons to embrace going without a date to your friend's or sibling's wedding.
