Finding the perfect wedding band to complement your engagement ring can be difficult. Blue Nile suggests finding a band that mimics and enhances the style of the engagement ring. If you get one that is completely different, it might detract from the beauty of your engagement ring. For example, this ornate ring above would go well with an equally fine-designed wedding band (below).
This engagement ring is not quite as ornate as the one above, but still has a lot of sparkle! Give the overall look even more power by pairing it with a band (below) that coordinates so flawlessly with the band of the engagement ring, that people…
As warmer weather heads our way, new makeup trends have arrived! Some winter trends I am sorry to see go (coral lips) and others not so much (crazazy nail art). But this season has makeup trends to get excited about, especially for brides!

I know…why would you want to cover up the gown you spent so long shopping for? But hear me out—sometimes a lady needs a little something extra on the day of. Because you may suddenly feel modest in front of 150 of your closest friends…and your grandpa. Or perhaps it’s a little colder than you thought it might be at your outdoor wedding. And maybe, just maybe, you’re suddenly wondering if you need a bit more glam (the answer to that question, by the way, is always YES.)
Don’t believe me? Look upon the radiant Georgina Chapman on the Oscar red carpet last month. What takes a simple look up a notch is the accessory—a capelet in this case.

A big part of the reason wedding planning is so difficult is that it’s hard to stick to a budget! There are so many beautiful ideas out there, and once we start shopping, it’s hard to get the real to match the ideal.

Underwear, y’all. We’re not talking wedding night prettiness…we mean the real stuff that keeps you looking great underneath a well-fitting formal dress. If you’ve been to the lingerie department of a major department store, you know there are a million shapewear and undergarment options. You also know that there’s no way in h-e-double hockey sticks that you’re going to drag your perfect dress around town to find the right underpinnings to go with it.
