The couple: Amber Lutz and Brian Leahy, from Philadelphia.
The ring: My ring is a double French-set diamond “V” engagement ring with an oval center stone surrounded. It’s all set in white gold. It’s perfect! My best friend since I was 12 years old helped Brian pick out the ring. He ordered it from Ritani.
Exhibition Ready: Make your entrance in one of this season’s grand silhouettes, whether it’s dotted with sparkling embellishments or cut with the cleanest lines, with you in it, it will be nothing short of a work of art.

If you are a bride who booked your wedding during the holiday season because it’s the most wonderful and cozy and festive and joyous and love-filled time of year—but are now faced with a lineup of family feasts and cookie-laced holiday parties and wondering how on earth you are going to survive the season without diving headfirst into the eggnog like you usually do so you can still fit into your dress (*raises hand*), well, you are not alone. I am frequently dismayed (though not surprised) to find that a pair of pants or two won’t button during the holidays, and safe to say that’s not a moment I’m looking to have the morning of my wedding.
Today I looked back to see just how long ago it was that we first heard wind of a My Big Fat Greek Wedding sequel—and readers, it was May of 2014!
And apparently, we’ll have to keep waiting: The movie is slated for release in March 2016, but at least, at long last, the trailer is finally here—and it looks just as delightful as the first time around, which, admit it, you always stop for when you find it on TV. Here it is—and spoiler: Aunt Voula is back!

After what seems like a five-year engagement (wasn’t that a movie?), style star Whitney Port finally married producer Tim Rosenman this past weekend in California. The good news? They aren’t making us wait that long to see her dress! Behold the fabulousness:
At my bridal shower the other week, my 95-year-old grandmother, who is the classiest and most proper lady around, gave me a silver Reed & Barton cake knife engraved with my and my fiance’s names, and our wedding date. It’s perfect and I adore it—I can’t wait to use it and then have it forever, and I love even more that she’s the one who gave it to me.
The other thought in my head, though, as I packed it up with the rest of the gifts was: Wowza, I’m glad she gave that to me, because I definitely wouldn’t have thought of that! And then we would have been cutting our cake with some rando knife from the kitchen in our wedding venue, and I would have been sad that I didn’t use that opportunity to obtain a special heirloom that we’ll have forever. Details aren’t my thing.
Well, we might have to wait until for the upcoming issue of Martha Stewart Weddings that’ll have all the details of Jamie Chung’s two glorious wedding dresses to really see them the way we want to—though a few outlets have posted some sneak peeks—but at least in the meantime, we can stare at some diamonds.
Leo Benoit, the Vice President of Retail Operations for bridal retailer Alfred Angelo, is a Vietnam War veteran, and it’s one of the reasons the company offers consistent incentives for its military brides year round. (They offer a 30 percent discount for military brides, their spouses-to-be, and dependents.)
And it was also Mr. Benoit’s idea that on Wednesday, November 11th—a.k.a. Veterans’ Day—the 62 Alfred Angelo stores will offering free wedding gowns to any military bride who makes an appointment to come in on that day and find her dream dress. (And psst: We’ve got one right here in Cherry Hill!)
