Prenups are (obviously) not one of the more romantic topics we discuss here on the blog, but they are nonetheless an important aspect of tying the knot. Whether you and your to-be plan to sign one is completely up to the two of you, but either way, it’s beneficial to at least have an understanding of what these pre-marriage agreements entail.
I doubt we need to explain to you, lovely readers, why bridal manicures are a valuable topic of conversation: We’ll venture to guess that ever since that rock landed on your left hand, your nails have been perfectly painted and at the ready should anyone ask to see your new ring.
And when it comes to manicures for your Big Day, we’re big fans of nail art. A hint of glitter on your ring finger, a subtle chevron design or even your groom’s initials are a few of our favorite ways to mix up your classic pale pink bridal mani.
So your guy just popped the question (congrats!) and you’ve got that gorgeous new sparkler on your finger—now it’s time to celebrate the big news with your nearest and dearest. Your engagement party is just the first of many wedding-related get togethers that’ll happen before you walk down the aisle, and while it’s a great way to set the tone for your Big Day, you don’t want to exhaust yourself before the real planning even begins.
Lauren Conrad’s New Napkin Collection is the Perfect Pop of Color For Your Wedding-Day Table Settings
Lauren Conrad is having quite the year: Not only did the former The Hills star tie the knot with hubby William Tell (see her gorgeous gowns here), but her Paper Crown clothing line also launched a collection of super pretty bridesmaids dresses.
But if that’s not enough to satisfy your craving for all things LC, we just caught wind of another way for you to incorporate her sense of style into your own Big Day: The Little Market—the online shop, which she co-founded, that features artisan goods from around the world—is now carrying a colorful collection of woven napkins.
This morning we came across a headline about a South Carolina bride who got thrown off a horse while posing for her wedding photos, and while I cringed at the thought of such a thing happening, I wasn’t at all surprised.
After all, what can you expect when you hop on the back of a random, unprepared horse that happens to stroll through your photo shoot? And why would you take that risk on perhaps the biggest day of your life when you’re already dolled up and wearing your dress?
Take a look for yourself:
There are quite a few studies out there that compare gender roles and marriage success, many of which revolve around the age-old discussion concerning the division of household chores and how it affects marriage satisfaction and divorce rates. Although most of this research finds that, in reality, women still hold a majority of the household responsibilities, a new set of data shows that both men and women would actually prefer otherwise.
When it comes to wedding party pampering, our first thought is usually the many treatments (hair, makeup, nails, tanning, etc.) that the bride and her girls require in order to look their best on the Big Day. What we don’t often focus our attention on though is the other team of equally important players—led by the guy you’re about to marry—who also need to be as handsome as ever come wedding time.
It’s no secret that the holiday season can majorly derail even the most dedicated of dieters—the cakes, cookies and indulgent hors d’oeuvres you’ll find at every holiday party on your calendar can be hard to resist. And let’s not even get started on the cocktails.
