Even before the news broke last night that the talented and beloved designer Oscar de la Renta had passed away at the age of 82 (the New York Times has a really lovely obituary I recommend), I was planning to share the following really cool news with you, brides—and now, today, it feels even more fitting.
VIDEO: “Vampire Diaries” Star Candice Accola Led Her Guests in a Post-Wedding Parade Down Bourbon Street
If this video doesn’t make you want to plan a destination wedding in New Orleans, I don’t know what will.
This past weekend, Vampire Diaries star Candice Accola tied the knot with Joe King of The Fray, and what went down after their reception is quite an amazing sight.

Philadelphia is home to so many gorgeous museums, and it’s always exciting when they become available as wedding venues. South Philly’s American Swedish Historical Museum is the latest historic space to begin booking weddings, and we can’t wait for you to see what a unique and breathtaking backdrop this landmark can be for your Big Day.
The Swedish Museum is the oldest of its kind in the United States and since its founding in 1926 has been a hub of Swedish culture and history. Inside the regal museum you’ll find 12 galleries filled with paintings and artwork of all sorts, but it’s the architecture of the building itself—soaring ceilings, intricate archways and massive staircases—that really makes this a spectacular wedding venue.
In their new partnership with Jeffrey A. Miller Catering, the Museum also underwent a slew of renovations to prepare the space for special events. In addition to the new bathrooms and renovated event space indoors, the Museum can now host your party on their tented terrace, which accommodates up to 250 guests for dinner and dancing.
The JAM Catering team is giving you the opportunity to check out the Museum for yourself this Friday, October 24, during their pop-up wedding show. You’ll have the chance to tour the space and enjoy food and drinks while chatting with the local vendors behind Peach Plum Pear Photography, Papertree Studio, Scratch Weddings and Little Bros. Beverage Outlet.
The event runs from 5:30-8 pm and is free for all couples and their guests. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-421-7765.
In the past, we’ve talked about quite a few studies that show how the division of household chores can influence the quality of a marriage. Research has shown that when chores aren’t equally divided among newlyweds the wife will be unhappy while the husband is unaffected, and that divorce rates are higher in households where men share an equal amount of the chores.

The ring: My pear-shaped ring with an invisible setting is from Barsky Diamonds—Nate Barsky definitely worked his tail off to make my ring just right. I’ve always wanted a pear and was so happy that my fiancé listened!
Whether you’re on the hunt for the gown you’ll walk down the aisle in or, like me, you simply enjoy stockpiling ideas for the future, there’s no denying that Bridal Fashion Week is an exciting time of year for anyone with weddings on the brain.
All last week my Twitter feed was abuzz with the latest designer collections to hit the runway, and it’s safe to say I spent quite a bit of time scrolling through slideshow after slideshow of stunning white dresses.
Next week, Suede Salon and Spa in Marlton will officially reopen following a floor to ceiling renovation and redesign that includes new amenities and a cozy, super soothing atmosphere. And you know what that means: With added services and plenty of room for relaxing, Suede is now a go-to for bridal parties in need of pampering before the Big Day.
