Every bride wants to look like she just returned from some sun-kissed Caribbean beach on her big day. But what if your fair complexion is that of a traditional English rose, all creamy porcelain with hints of blush? You know that not even equator-strength sun will produce a natural tan. (Besides, you want to stave off sun-borne wrinkles forever!) Enter the self-tanner: Self-tanners from our mothers' era were renowned for taking the user on a visit to Oompa-Loompaland. Fortunately, modern self-tanners are much improved, but you still need a sherpa to guide you up the mountain of products that promise glow-worthy results. Check out our list of top self-tanners from Amazon, Sephora, Nordstrom and more that'll give brides a soft, natural-looking glow without sun exposure. But before you use any of them, a pro tip: To stay free of streaks, exfoliate 24 hours prior to use, smooth the product evenly over freshly cleansed skin, and wash immediately hands after use. Now, get glowing!
There's no rule book that says a wedding gown must be white. Modern brides are embracing color, a trend possibly first sparked by Gwen Stefani's custom dip-dyed and hand-painted pink ombre wedding gown by John Galliano for Christian Dior back 2002. After Gwen's rule-breaking move, Reese Witherspoon got married in a pale pink gown by Monique Lhuillier and Jessica Biel wore a blush-toned Giambattista Valli creation for her marriage to Justin Timberlake. Sure, white and ivory will remain the wedding gown go-tos, but many other colorful dresses have us swooning, particularly for summer weddings. Here, we've rounded up a variety of wedding dresses in shades of blush, metallics, yellow, blue and beyond from David's Bridal, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and more. It's our ode to the rainbow, and we think you should go for it!
After you've picked out your wedding gown, shoes and veil, it's time to choose that last accent: the handbag. Despite your maid of honor's promises to take care of all your needs, don't forget that bridal purse – because you WILL want a lipstick at some point.
Wedding purses and clutches are itsy-bitsy by tradition. (It should be nowhere near as big as your typical day bag!) Bridal clutches need only hold a cell phone, a lipstick, some breath mints and a hankie. Think "dainty." To aid your wedding shopping mission, we scoured some of our favorite online stores to find inexpensive bridal handbags that look pricey. In fact, despite their designer origins – Rebecca Minkoff, Ted Baker of London, White by Vera Wang – every purse on our list sells for under $100. Here are some of the prettiest wedding purses and clutches from David's Bridal, Macy's, Nordstrom and more.
With Cinderella's dainty slipper in their collective memories, some brides seldom think about comfortable shoes on the big day. But there's no wisdom in wearing wobbly stilettos to an event at which you might actually want to dance. Modern brides are opting for practical wedding shoes that can be worn more than once, as opposed to extremely high-heeled shoes that leave their tootsies blistered on the honeymoon. Also, we get it: Some very tall brides prefer to seek out more sensible heels, including flats, wedges and kitten heels that may also boast cushioned footbeds and supportive straps. So if you, too, want to dance the night away at your wedding, check out this list of swoon-worthy wedding flats that are just as ravishing as 4-inch heels (and much more practical). These styles from ASOS, Nordstrom, David's Bridal and more will take you from the ceremony to the after party in blissful comfort.
Weddings offer a rare opportunity to gather all of one's favorite people -- his and yours -- into one room for a fabulous time. Far before the wedding day arrives, you'll have chosen your most intimate friends to take their positions within the bridal party as bridesmaids and groomsmen. Thanking these special bridal party members with a gift is customary. You can do so before the wedding at various points: during the bachelor or bachelorette weekend or at the rehearsal dinner, for instance. Others do it while getting ready for the wedding, especially if the gift is something the guests might use to spruce themselves up, such as earrings or cuff links. Below, we've gathered an affordable selection of wedding party gifts. Believe it: For $10 and under, you can offer your bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts they'll use and enjoy for years to come from Amazon, Etsy, Walmart and other popular online stores.

With a very limited growth range that barely extends beyond the borders of Florida, saw palmetto has surprisingly gained widesprea...d acclaim in recent years. Saw palmetto is one of the world's shortest palms, barely reaching over five feet at its tallest, making it ideal for smaller landscaping projects. It makes up for its small size with a long lifespan, with some specimens believed to have lived more than 500 years. Saw palmetto earns its name from the rows of sharp, tiny teeth that grow between the leaf and the stem. The plant produces a dark, fleshy fruit, which has been used as a food source by Native Americans and some of the original settlers. The fruit is also used to craft this natural herbal tea.Buddha Teas: A Company Dedicated To QualityBleach Free Tea BagsAll of our teas are packaged in bleach free tea bags.
