31 Wedding Trends to Hitch or Ditch

by Azure

As a wedding blogger and a bride-to-be, I can go from loving to loathing any top trend in two shakes of a lamb's tail. I've even wished, at times, that there was a special place where played out wedding trends (like the Tiffany Blue + Chocolate Brown color scheme) could go to die. Sounds morbid I know, but here's my reasoning... The moment a once unique and trendy idea catches on and hits the masses, it becomes nearly inescapable (especially for industry insiders). And no matter...

5 Things NOT To Forget In The Throes of Wedding Planning

by The Broke-Ass Bride

Source: Style Me Pretty Here's what no one tells you when you're piecing together your dream wedding, years in advance of meeting anyone who even remotely qualifies as husband material: wedding planning is intense.

How To: Stock the Reception Bar Like a Champ

by Azure

A few weeks back, Jessica of The Budget Savvy Bride shared her best tips and tricks for pulling off a spectacular wedding on a dime. When asked to divulge her single best budget wedding idea, she had this to say... For my wedding, we found a venue that allowed us to supply our own alcohol, so we shopped at discount stores for our wine and beer for the reception. Cheapo Trader Joe's wine was disguised by custom wine bottle labels we DIY'd so no one was the wiser! If you're savvy...

Wedding Planning Write-Offs to Fatten Up Your Tax Return

by Azure

There are two things (ok, maybe more) that give me serious anxiety. Having a huge stack of unopened mail to sort through (random right?), and the time of year when companies like Turbo Tax and H&R Block start barraging the airwaves with commercials. The latter is my least favorite because it can only mean one thing…. the tax man is coming! Hopefully you’ve already filed your taxes, as April 15th is just three days away. But by this time next year, you may be filing as a...

Thankful Registry

by Brooklyn Bride

As a blogger, I get a ton of press releases...most are pretty lame, but sometimes one catches my eye and I get intrigued. Such is the case with Thankful Registry. Some registry sites can be all pink and girly, which almost insults me, because I was DEFINITELY not into that when I was getting married. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness to design that TR has put into their product. It's almost a Pinterest hybrid, so you can register from anywhere, but it all looks really good. You...

Wedding Gifts Etiquette Myth

by Azure

Have you heard the etiquette "rule" that says you have one year (after attending a couple's wedding) to send a gift? Well, according to Peggy Post, this is more of a myth than a rule, and I can totally see why! I understand that everyone is busy and sometimes you don't get around to trolling the couple's registry until after the I Do's. But waiting an entire year to send a gift,  after indulging in drinks, dinner, and dancing on the couple's dime?! It just doesn't seem right! And...
