Cropped with a knotted bow at the waist, this striped cotton-linen shirt is a cool and contemporary choice from Rag & Bone. We love that V-neck adds structure whilst showing off some skin.
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!)
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.
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.
Every beach wedding delivers the basics: salt air, gorgeous views, crashing waves and unmatched tranquility. Beyond those elements, what more do you need? Decor that is fit for a beach bride, that's what! Seaside motifs, whether subtle or over-the-top, can heighten an already breathtaking scene. Among the complementary imagery and materials for a beach wedding are ocean-derived items such as sea glass, starfish, sand dollars, coral fans and clam shells. Some brides can choose to go a little more nautical by incorporating sailor knots, rugged rope, fishing floats and anchors. Placing some palm leaves in strategic locations will up the tropical isle vibe. Check out a treasure trove of beautiful items from Etsy, Michaels, Walmart and more that will enrich your waterfront wedding.
