Wedding season has taken over! Whether you are a bridesmaid, guest of honor or bride-to-be (like me!), it seems like summer has been invaded by those "I do's." No matter the cost or amount of awkward dancing that goes on, it seems like everyone makes it a point to come together to celebrate the bride and groom. So why do we love weddings so much even when they are not our own?
This is the time of year that is considered wedding season and along with the happy couples comes the wedding party. Putting together your bridesmaids and groomsmen can be difficult. You don't want to hurt anyone's feelings if they don't make the cut for your bridal party, but the most difficult decision of all is probably choosing a flower girl.
Unless you have a child-free family, then you know picking your ring bearer and flower girl are huge jobs that you'd only give to the most responsible (least whiny) child. Which brings me to pictures of this ADORABLE 4-year-old, Annabelle Earl who appeared in public pleading to be someone's flower girl.
I read that 27 years is the median age for first-time brides in this country. That means that I have a decade to come up with creative ideas for my daughter's wedding. Not that she'd consider any of my ideas, but I can't help behave like the stereotypical Latina mami I swore I wouldn't become --opinionated and meddlesome. I love creating memorable experiences that can be shared with my entire familia.Continue Reading >
When a wildfire broke out in Oregon over the weekend, one local bride and groom thought their wedding day would be over before it even started. Instead, the fire ended up serving as a backdrop for both their ceremony and the wedding photo of a lifetime.
Michael Wolber and now-wife April Hartley were planning on getting married at the Rock Springs Ranch, just outside of Bend, where the wildfire took place. Though the couple tried to continue with their ceremony as planned, firefighters soon approached the wedding party and asked them to evacuate. After some pleading on the family's part, firemen eventually agreed to let April and Michael (quickly) exchange vows and snap a photo before leaving the location. That photo has since gone viral and once you see it, you'll know exactly why. It's absolutely stunning ... check it out below!
Want to hear something crazy? A Tennessee bride has been receiving loads of criticism for having her newborn baby attached to the train of her wedding dress and dragging her along as she walked down the aisle.
This chick LITERALLY treated her daughter like a fashion accessory. Who does this? Someone who's missing a few screws that's who. Wait until you see the picture of this madness!
Every bride and groom has their own way of approaching their wedding day. Some go big, some go small, some follow themes. But one place that is apparently becoming a popular locale among soon-to-be-married couples? Underwater!
The Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel in Florida is apparently now offering something called "the mermaid wedding package" for pairs who have always wanted to tie the knot while submerged in water. The entire ceremony takes place in the 8-foot-deep end of the hotel's pool, under the guidance of a "mermaid" officiate. And I thought getting married by an Elvis impersonator was weird…Continue Reading >
Well, it's official: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally tied the knot last night in Florence, Italy making it probably the most awaited wedding, like, ever. The build-up to the actual event was helped along with the mystery that surrounded it--perhaps because the Kardashians have never really been private. We didn't exactly know where it was going to take place. But neither did the guests, really, as details of the extravagant affair emerged relatively late into the partygoers time in Paris. The media, of course, had been speculating for weeks, and there were pictures and investigative reports to back everything. But now that it's over, all we're left with are some sparse details. Including a grainy picture of Kim K's dress! Check out all that we know after the break!
Weddings are fun (as long as you're not planning them!), but I especially enjoy when they have one or two special touches that match the personality of the people getting married and their families. That's why I couldn't help but love this video of a groom and his mom stunning all their guests with their amazing mother-son dance!
Check out their unique dance below, along with 4 other unconventional mother-son dances:
If there's one celebrity wedding I'm actually looking forward to its Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's. I've just about had it with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's extravagant Parisian wedding plans, but Angelina's seems a lot more fun and in some ways a lot more practical.
She's decided to enlist her six kids as her wedding planners. How cute is that?
Paul Wheatley was with his fiancé, Donna, for 12 years and they had been engaged for 9 when they found out the devastating news that she had only weeks to live.
The two wanted to get married overseas, but were so busy with their life and child, that they never quite got around to planning their big day. After receiving the shocking diagnosis, Wheatley knew they couldn't wait any longer.Continue Reading >
