Although bridal gloves aren’t the most common of wedding-day accessories, every so often we see a bride with a pair that really works and we find ourselves wondering why more ladies don’t go out on that particular limb.
Come wintertime, even a delicate pair of gloves can provide a little bit of warmth for your bouquet-clutching hands during pictures (and look fantastic in them!), and even in the spring, sometimes they’re just the most perfect darling finishing touch to your elegant bridal look.
Whenever a particularly fashionable or fun-to-dress celebrity gets engaged, designers inevitably start sketching up the dream dress they would put her in, were it up them and genius-level designs that swirl around in their heads. I always think those are really fun to see, and you know what? I bet these celebs do, too. What girl wouldn’t want to see what these amazing talents would dream up just for them?
Well, what we saw today focused on an extra fun subject for a bride—Lady Gaga!—and featured dozens of designers trotting out their fantastical gowns.
Well, this is sure to brighten your rainy morning: One Pitch Perfect fan got the surprise of a lifetime when her boyfriend popped the question after he and his friends elaborately reenacted the Treblemakers’s finale performance from the hit movie.
Both Lindsay Versage and Max Podell (and most of their friends) love Pitch Perfect and its soundtrack, so it made perfect sense for Podell to incorporate the movie into his surprise proposal. Take a look for yourself:
We know that ever since that ring landed on your finger, the chances that you’ve been making some changes both at the gym and in the kitchen are very high. (Especially if you’ve already gotten your dress, and very specific images of low-cut backs and fitted bodices are dancing through your head.)
That’s why we’re always happy to share health, fitness and nutrition inspiration with you when an extra good piece of it crosses our desks, and the cool ladies at Be Well Philly were just talking about this particular topic this week: With some healthy foods, unless you’re preparing them and eat them with certain methods and in certain ways, you won’t actually get all the health benefits you can from them.
While planning your wedding can be a major bonding experience for you and your to-be, you’re sure to encounter a few road bumps and differing of opinions along the way—after all, have you ever heard of a couple agreeing on every single aspect of their Big Day? We didn’t think so.
On the bright side, the fights that tend to arise between engaged couples while wedding planning are incredibly predictable—money, family, prenups and religion are just a few of the topics that usually cause tension—so with a little foresight and a lot of thoughtfulness, you really can work to successfully steer clear of any blowouts.

Here’s an interesting study we came across today: According to data published by The New York Times, where you grow up plays a role in how likely you are to get married (by the age of 26, to be exact).
What it boils down to is political ideology, population size and how those two factors contribute to a whether a state/county/city encourages or discourages marriage. In general, they found that conservative and less densely populated places are more likely to encourage marriage while liberal areas and large cities tend to discourage it.
Despite all of the effort couples put into the food that’s served on their Big Day, one of the most common remarks we hear from brides post-wedding is that they never got a chance to eat—whether you’re stuck posing for photos during cocktail hour, too nervous and excited to stomach a meal or too busy mingling with your guests to sit down for dinner, food can easily become an afterthought.
