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!
Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to reveal your beautiful best all the way to your fingertips. That's why we've curated the prettiest nail polish colors for summer brides, all available now at Walmart. From sweet pink to sensual gray to seaworthy blue, here are a handful of our favorites tones that will work with wedding gowns and bridal party dresses of any color, along with suntanned skin of course!
Here's the thing about your wedding day makeup: It's going to look incredible. And aside from maybe the heavy powder and false lashes, you're going to want to replicate and incorporate what the makeup artist did into your daily (or evening) routine. So, when you do your beauty run-through, work with your stylist to find out the exact products and colors she's using or go online and choose them together. A pretty eyeshadow palette can take a bride from her wedding day, to the evening reception, the honeymoon, and all the way to her first anniversary celebration (and beyond!). Here, we've chosen some of our favorite bridal eyeshadow palettes from Sephora, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and more
If you happen to have two major dates in your future — a baby's due date and a wedding — well, soon-to-be Mrs. Mom, you have much to celebrate. But first, take a deep breath and pick the wedding dress. Size your maternity wedding dress according to what your due date will be on your wedding day, and size up to cover your bases: It's always easier to tailor a larger dress. Then the sky's the limit! You can a choose a silhouette that includes a flowing A-line skirt and a high empire waist or, in the opposite direction, a form-fitting style that shows off your great legs and features a flattering neckline. If your bump will be small on the big day and you would prefer to hide it, a peplum waist is the perfect camouflage. (Bonus: In some cases, you can double dip by using your wedding dress as your baby shower gown.) No matter how far along you are, your wedding will be a celebration of love and life. We've rounded up some gorgeous maternity wedding gowns from our favorite online shops, including Etsy, Nordstrom and David's Bridal. Cheers to you!
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
