Proposal Video: World’s Longest Whisper Chain

by Azure

Remember that game you used to play in summer camp, sometimes it was called "Telephone" sometimes "Operator." Basically, you sit in a circle and one person whispers something to the person next to her, who whispers it to the next person, and so on, around the circle.

ANYWAY, luckily, that didn't happen...

The groomsmen and bridesmaids aren't trying to dance down the aisle in tuxes and full-length dresses, they're in casual outfits for what's clearly a fun, casual wedding. 3) This is fun and...

Inspiration for Your Wedding Menu

by Azure

Happy Monday! Last month the New York Times did an interesting article on how a lot of people, especially in California, are trying to make their weddings look less expensive than they actually are.
