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.
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.
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!
Luggage is a purchase you only make once every few years (hopefully), so it's important to shop wisely. While you're of course looking for quality travel gear that's durable and roomy, you don't want to go broke before you've even gotten to the airport. Wedding and honeymoon planning is expensive enough — so avoid spending a small fortune by shopping luggage from stores like Kohl's and Walmart. The luggage sets ahead are functional, fashionable and, best of all, affordable — they're all under $150.
Aside from the bride, the sweetest sight at the wedding is the flower girl. Holding her own with a dainty basket of petals, she is a vision of loveliness when she walks down the aisle. It's such fun to pick out a flower girl dress to blend in with the ensembles of the bridal party, especially for a light and bright spring or summer wedding. Your little princess can be traditional and wear white or ivory, or she can wear a solid color taken from the wedding palette. Some fashion-forward brides may even choose an interesting print that suits the mood of the wedding. Since the flower girl is something of a mascot, she can be command a truly unique aesthetic. Here, we've rounded up some the prettiest flower girl dresses from Nordstrom, J. Crew, BHLDN and more.
