y ou’ve been crunching all the numbers but nuptial bliss just isn’t adding up – empty pockets refuse to justify designer label aesthetic, not to mention you’ve still got oodles of shoes, jewels, trains and veils to observe, lure, and procure. Stop digging that impetuous tunnel of dubious debt and opt for bodacious bargain basements and cutesy secret nooks instead - world-renowned for glimmering and glamourizing with a surplus of unsung treasures minus the cost of your happiness. blowout bombshell

s urprise weddings are gaining popularity, but the term still incites the occasional raised brow and ‘say what?’ Just think of it as an inverse surprise party, but instead of a room full of those on-the-in crouching behind couches, it’s two hush-hush lovers setting the stage to spill their dirty deets. So cue the shock and awe, because the squealing oh-my-god-ness of the surprise partier is practically a dull nod when compared to guests’ reactions over the surprise newlyweds. surprise weddings understood

t here’s something reassuring about comfort DIY eats, surely triggering memories of dad’s mac and cheese cure for the broken hearted, grandma’s lectures on the correct corn starch to strawberry-rhubarb juice ratio, and your fiancé’s alleged ‘world famous’ buttermilk fried chicken – a romantic, calorific picnic staple.

s ometimes, the most overwhelming aspect of planning a wedding is dealing with a groom who is totally, inexplicably underwhelmed.

That’s why it’s important to understand the psychology behind his lack of attention to detail. Men and women tackle issues and think through situations differently, and neither can be blamed for their intrinsic method of decision-making. the female perspective - a scrutiny

h ome has so many lovely connotations and delightful clichés to its name, the word practically puffs fresh baked cookie scent. If committed love gives you warm, fuzzy feelings akin to those spurred by holiday traditions and childhood photo albums, if you’re a true daddy’s girl or self-described homebody, if you want a wedding that’s vintage in concept without the irony of trend, then a beautiful, intimate wedding ensconced in balmy, familial affection is yours to call home. After all, it’s where the heart’s at, it’s syrupy sweet, and there’s just no place like it.

a common misconception when it comes to solidifying your wedding vision, is that it automatically gives you the go-ahead for a trip to Splurge Town. Not so fast, all you devil-may-care shop-aholics. Alongside your spouse-to-be, make sure to batten down the hatches of your budget first, so as to avoid the old cold-shoulder later on. Once that’s out of the way, you can get down to the fun stuff, thanks to that clean-as-a-whistle conscience and ample pocket book. budget constituents

t he walk down the aisle is the show-stopper so don’t write off procession order as a minor detail. Alright, so it is a minor detail, but it’s the little things that make up and perfect the overall package. Besides, an arbitrary order can be interpreted any way your sensitive cousin or demanding sister feels would help fuel their plight. And there’s more to take into consideration than prospective drama. Procession order can or should be affected by these three factors: tradition, aesthetics and/or creativity. None of these are throw-away rationales for (only sort of) sweating the small stuff, so go wit

y ou’re each other’s Number One fans, but there’s no denying - when it comes to recognizing the higher aesthete, you rule the roost. Don’t expect him to know a Calla lily from a dandelion, or that red and yellow only go together on hamburgers. This isn’t to say he should be bashfully banished to the Hall-of-Shame, and then drudgingly dragged back out come vow-time – but just that compromise and consideration go hand-in-hand, especially when it comes to incorporating the good ol’ groom into the wedding planning foray. a-tisket, a-task-it
