w eddings, and everything that comes with them – the gifts, the shower, the bachelorette party – are all fun-filled, wonderful memories-in-the-making. But when you add up all the good times, (also known as the spa, the supper club, and just enough drinks to keep the bride tipsy all night long) you end up with a pretty hefty bill. As the bride, keep in mind that most women are too shy to confess their financial shortcomings, and that many will be attending multiple weddings in one summer, so try and ease up on your well-meaning girlfriends.

p ink, as in tickled, as in ‘pretty in,’ as in your fiancé’s favorite piece of lingerie, can be as womanly and daring as it is girly and sweet. Painting your wedding pink doesn’t mean you have to stay within the realm of the pure and the poised- (though there’s little shame in channeling your inner Barbie-doll idolizing, tea party-girl) in fact, you’re encouraged to explore all the world of pink has to offer, from the bold to the exotic to the downright sexy.
