Amid the tumult of wedding preparations, there is someone who always keeps a cool head: Mom. Whether she's your mom or your future mother-in-law, she's been there since the beginning for you guys, offering her love and support. So, now's the time to gift her with a treasure she'll always cherish. Traditionally given at the rehearsal dinner or the morning of the wedding, gifts for the mother of the bride or mother of the groom should be substantial, but they don't have to be exorbitant. We've rounded up a list of gifts that cost $50 or less that are unique and memorable: Some are sentimental, others are practical and a couple are glamorous; choose which one best reflects your special lady's personality. We shopped at Uncommon Goods, Williams-Sonoma, Nordstrom and more for these thoughtful keepsakes. No doubt, you'll find something she'll love from this creative assortment!
Ah, the honeymoon: It's the glittering light at the end of the wedding tunnel. It lures newlyweds to the getaway car with a siren's song of romance, self-indulgence and drinks topped with little paper umbrellas. There's only one stressor: What to pack? No worries. Like James Bond on a jet, we'll have you readily prepared for foreign travels and relaxing vistas with our list of must-pack honeymoon items. The goal is to keep the luggage light by packing wrinkle-resistant clothes and comfy-yet-stylish shoes that go the distance. Taken together, these items provide ease, comfort and style, along with day-to-night dressing. If the sun is on your horizon, you should also pack the requisite beauty products to keep your hair glistening and your skin sunburn-free. Read our list of travel must-haves from Anthropologie, Tory Burch, Nordstrom and more. Then hit the open road safe in the knowledge that you've got this honeymoon in the bag!
Every bride breathes in a deep sigh of relief on her wedding day. It may not go smoothly, and that's fine. But between now and then, getting the wedding prepared is a bit of a marathon, and it can't hurt to be physically fit. Sure, there's a lot of pressure on brides to look as good as possible in that wedding gown, and many women find themselves "shedding for the wedding." Whether you're looking to drop a few pounds, simply want to stay toned or are trying to tame your inner Bridezilla with some stress-relieving yoga, we've found 20 high-tech performance leggings to wear in your pursuit of health and happiness. They'll keep you comfy and dry as you work toward your goal, and most importantly, you'll look and feel fabulous on your special day.
What's your sign? Better yet, what are all your bridesmaids' signs? Whether it's the traditional zodiac based on Western astrology and ancient Greco-Roman mythology or the Chinese zodiac that repeats its animal signs on a 12-year cycle, these personal (albeit superstitious...) symbols never fail to fascinate. Incorporating the various zodiac signs and representative animals into personalized jewelry for your wedding day is a welcome trend, be it in the form of a signature piece for the bride or a special gift for your best gals. We can't predict the future, but we can promise your bridal party will have stars in their eyes over these beautiful necklaces, pendants, charms, bracelets and rings from Nordstrom, Etsy, Urban Outfitters and more.
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.
