Rehearsal Dinner Etiquette from The Man Registry: Party Down?

by Azure

About The Man Registry From time to time, we receive an interesting question from a user that simply must be answered in a public forum. Take this one on drunken rehearsal dinners for example: Q -We’re holding our rehearsal dinner at my parent’s house. Very casual, very low-key. Our wedding party members are all old friends from college and things generally get pretty crazy when they’re all together. If a full-on party breaks out, should we shut it down? Or go with the flow?...

by Azure

Rock Your Pre-Wedding Parties Like the Celebs Rock the Red Carpet! What Louboutin is to celebrity feet, the great Hervé Léger is to taut celebrity bodies.

But then, like a beacon in the night, Rent the Runway swooped in and changed the game! For every fashion-loving lady...

Bubbly Bride: The Bridal Shower Guest List

by Azure

Will you have numerous bridal showers and separate your friends from family, or possibly keep your family and your husband's family separate?

by Azure

About Bubbly Bride Food has always surrounded wedding festivities. You begin with the rehearsal dinner, jump into the 5 course wedding meal and end with the morning after brunch.

Try planning other activities for each event with food, instead of planning events with the main purpose to gather together to eat. An example of this is to plan your rehearsal celebration at a bowling alley and have...

by Azure

Are you looking for a way to make some of your wedding planning decisions a little more fun? Why not involve your friends? When my friends Michael and Matthew were getting married they were lucky enough to have a venue (Chicago’s Newberry Library) that allowed them to provide their own bar. We’ve written about this idea before, because it’s a great way to save money. Michael and Matthew both like a nice glass of wine, but neither of them are exactly Alpana Singh. So, to...

Bridesmaids’ Luncheon: Giving Back to the Girls Who Give to You

by Azure

It’s an occupational hazard that I look at almost everything in terms of weddings! A friend was showing me these dishes at Rosanna Inc the other day and I said “They would be perfect for a bridesmaid’s luncheon.” She had zero idea what I was talking about. So, if you’re similarly baffled, here’s the scoop: A bridesmaid’s lunch is a bridal shower in reverse. You take your bridesmaids (and any other important women in the wedding party) out to a nice old-fashioned...
