The wedding table runner has traditionally been a must-have décor item for dressing up a table, whether it's used to cover the midsection of a bare table or added atop a tablecloth to create a rich tableau. In earlier centuries, layering such items was reserved for the wealthy as a sumptuous way to display one's taste. (Downton Abbey, anyone?) As a new bride, you'll enjoy using runners to decorate your table, along with your new serveware, china and glassware. For a wedding, they give an additional pop to the overall wedding design. Table runners may reflect the bride's color scheme to create a coordinated color palette, or in a neutral color, wedding table runners can provide the perfect backdrop for flowers and table settings.
Table runners can help lend a summery vibe to a wedding, as well. A burlap runner is perfect for a rustic wedding, while a floral print runner is divine for a garden wedding, and a shiny table runner ups the ante for a black-tie affair. Whatever your style, we've collected the best table runners from stores such as Etsy, Nordstrom, Macy's and more.

Cyber Monday is a great day to stock up on discounted holiday gifts for family and friends, but it's also an opportunity to score stylish honeymoon necessities for yourself. And the online destination that should serve as your starting point to prep your for your first trip as newlyweds? Why Nordstrom, of course. The department store's sales are the stuff retail legends are made of, and the Cyber Monday sale is certainly no exception. Last year, Nordstrom offered online shoppers an additional 20% off select sale items — which means this time around you've got the potential to scoop up a whole bunch of essentials that make for a chic honeymoon (without having to overpack). From cozy plane-worthy pants to sunglasses you'll wear long after you return home, these are the deals we think are worth keeping an eye on (and adding to cart) this Cyber Monday.
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 countdown for your wedding day has begun. What better way to kickoff the shower season than by starting the ultimate wedding registry for your newlywed nest. From fancy kitchen appliances to decorative linens, our editors are weighing in on what you shouldn't leave off your wedding registry from our friends at Macy's.
