The news of a celebrity wedding crasher used to be a rare (albeit super exciting) happening for us to write about here on the blog, but nowadays it seems like a common occurrence for our favorite stars to pop up at receptions and wedding events all over the world.
Not surprisingly, we have long touted the benefits of marriage on this blog—including, specifically, the health benefits! Not only does marriage make you want to take better care of yourself—studies have shown that being married literally does translate to good things inside your body.
The latest: Marriage is even good for your blood vessels!
Yesterday, on the Instagram account of Mr. Chris Harrison, who you all know and love and welcome into your home many Monday nights as the host of the Bachelor, posted a picture of a dude proposing to his lady:
Question: I was recently invited to a wedding of an old family friend. I’d like to go, but I won’t know anyone else there, and I wasn’t invited with a date. I have a sense that that’s more because she doesn’t actually realize or remember that I have a serious significant other (we’ve known each other a long time, but don’t speak often)—not because her guest list can’t afford it.
Is there a tactful way to mention my boyfriend to her over the coming weeks, or should I just forget it? I just don’t want to decline the invite just because I won’t know a soul there.
We love this charging station idea from Pinterest!
When social media plays a large role in memorializing every moment of your Big Day, a fully-charged cell phone becomes a vital tool for both you and your guests.
To avoid an influx of dead batteries mid-reception, we’ve been seeing more couples set up a charging station at their venue so that guests can conveniently refuel their phones without having to search for a stray outlet (which, from our experience, usually leads to abandoning your phone in the bathroom or squatting awkwardly in a dress near a floor outlet in a ballroom. Not that we’ve specifically done that or anything).
You’re already well aware that the average cost of a wedding has passed the $30,000 mar—but have you considered that as that number steadily increases, so does the price of being a bridesmaid? Believe it or not, on average it costs a whopping $1,700 to stand next to the bride-to-be on her Big Day, which, we’re guessing, is quite a big investment for most of your ‘maids.

Considering the many inspirational honeymoon posts we’ve written here on the blog, I’ve come to the conclusion that if I start pulling together my list of ideal destinations now, I may have a slightly better chance of deciding on a single spot once my actual honeymoon rolls around in a few years.
