No Ring, No Bring.

Last week, I heard on some cheesy daytime show that Pippa Middleton (or whatever her married name is now) was enforcing a "no ring, no bring" policy for her wedding guest list: no "plus ones" for friends and loved ones unless they were married or engaged.

Wedding Favors for under a Dollar

Most people don't know how to plan a wedding. Either they've never been married before, were last wed back when big, poofy sleeves were cool, or they just can't sort through the slew of choices a modern wedding presents. In comes Pinterest.

I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest. So far, it has helped me organize the wedding goodies I like and find new ones I may want to use. However, I get frustrated with the lousy ideas I see

So This is a Thing: Football Garter Toss

I hate to disappoint you all, but no one will be catching a sweaty, chub-rub-frayed (yes, that could probably happen on my legs in just a couple hours) garter at my wedding. To me, tossing the garter is a creepy, unnecessary tradition. Honestly, I can't imagine how someone decided that whole ordeal would be appropriate for a wedding.

Do-it-yourself centerpieces, custom-designed invitations, personalized vows, choreographed dances—wedding books and blogs have turned planning a wedding into a part-time job. I'm talking thirty-two hours per week and eligible for benefits.

With all the elements that go into a wedding nowadays some mistakes are inevitable. And if you think you aren't making any mistakes in your wedding planning, the Internet would like to prove you wrong.

I am not sure if your handful of Xanax counts as your something blue.

When I started planning my wedding, I had some ideas of the mistakes

Finally, A New Season of "Say Yes to the Dress"!

Since I got engaged, I have been obsessively watching wedding-related TV shows and movies. Now several months into my engagement and with more than a year to go, I find myself having to slow down or risk running out of material.

I quickly burned through all of Hulu's Say Yes to the Dress catalog. I then had to resort to "borrowing" my brother-in-law's cable log-in to use the TLC Go app. Finally, I ran out of episodes of the original
