t rendsetters winked at yoga a while back, but the discipline has yet to go the way of the jazzercise. Blame it on the lack of hip-high leotards, or the perk of inner peace – yoga’s only gotten hotter. And every run-down bride should consider taking an “ohm” on the sweaty side before popping any sleeping, caffeine or diet pill; it’s the healthy route to total happiness. Though it’s normal to associate hot yoga with the boot camp that is Bikram, don’t let the perils of a light head stop you from joining a toasty little studio. Moksha is your accessible alternative, a branch catering to the novice

a ny wed-vice article worth its weight in straight talk will tell you: your big day won’t be without its little blunders. Even when it feels thisclose to perfection, an emergency kit is still in order. Because glutting a purse full of high-priority bridal trappings is a fun but tricky art, its best to break it down by bag size.
