Win Your Dream Wedding (and lose weight)

by Azure

So, last week I was up in arms about Peta's weight loss contest. This week, there's another contest popping up. I'm not upset about this one, and I'll tell you why: • This contest is for both brides and grooms, it's helping a couple form healthy habits, not encouraging women to lose weight. • This contest focuses on exercise, not diet. • This contest is only targeting people that are really overweight. You have to need to lose between 50-100 pounds, and you have to be...

by Azure

We love finding ways to help you get things for your wedding for free. We run great contests all the time, and have no trouble turning you on to contests from other sites or companies.

Tips on Great Wedding Day Skin for Great Wedding Photographs

by Azure

Special to OneWed from Sarah Logan of Aesthetics Science Institute In the weeks leading up to the wedding, to say that things are hectic is a huge understatement. This is why so many brides forget to schedule facial treatments until the last minute, and this can lead to disaster. Lasering, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels shouldn't be done within 10 days to a month of the wedding, so they might not even be an option if you wait too long. Even simple things like facials need...

Nail Polish Debacle: Coordinating Polish Colors For Your Bridesmaids?

On Saturday, I decided to treat myself to a pedicure. I was looking forward to a relaxing time, but the second I walked into the nearly empty salon, I heard it… “Oh.My.Gosh. This is so ugly. Omg, this is hideous! Look at this, do you see this color, this is disgusting, ohmygosh, ohmygosh, do you see this?” The rant continued, with some whimpers and voice cracks thrown in for good measure.

Bubbly Bride: Must Bride-to-Be Mean Long Hair?

by Azure

About Bubbly Bride I find it interesting that once a woman becomes a bride-to-be, they instantly begin 'growing out their hair'. No matter the current length, long or short, every bride's response seems to be 'I am growing it out for the big day'. Which I am beginning to believe is code for 'I am not going to visit my stylist for a year'. I understand the thought process behind it, in that they want their hair to be long enough to have a fancy up do for the big day. What I do...
