After the wedding itself, the second busiest aspect of planning is creating a wedding registry. It should be one of your fist tasks and you should make certain all of the essentials are included. A basic item all newlyweds should get is an amazing new sheet set — or two or three or four sets. You'll want to create a bedroom that's a cozy retreat for you and your new hubby, so use our handy list to start adding your bedding basics your wedding registry checklist.
We've done tons of research to find the best sheet sets for new brides, according to the best reviews on the internet. We also looked at thread count (we recommend no less than 200), materials, weave type, organic options, design, price, quality and more. Phew! There are a lot of sheets out there, and the materials run the gamut — organic cotton, long-staple cotton, chemical-free cotton, Egyptian cotton, microfiber, sateen, satin, flannel and more are among your choices. When you register, you peruse this list to decide what's most important to you for creating your new nest of newlywed coziness.
Of the many pre-wedding complications a bride might experience, an acne breakout is among the worst. If you find yourself in such a muddle, reach for the zit-kicking elixirs found in this kit from the No. 1 acne-fighting brand in America, Proactiv. Proactiv Solution's 5-Step Acne Treatment System - the "Stress-Free Skin Wedding Kit," consists of three dermatologist-developed products that work together through the strength of science. This group of formulations includes prescription-strength benzoyl peroxide that kills acne-causing bacteria at its source. And that's just for starters. When used in unison, these products harmonize to leave your skin clear and glowing. Bonus: There are two additional products to prevent blackheads, blemish flare-ups, and keep the glow going long after the honeymoon ends. Get the skinny on each step of this lifesaver kit — trust us, your wedding survival bag is not complete without it!
A blushing bride with a dewy glow, lush lashes and flushed lips: Doesn't that sound like a pretty picture? You can create it. Use your inner beauty as your canvas, then bring your creative talents and some artist-worthy glowing beauty products into the mix. This is how you can amp up your natural beauty for the big day. We love the high-low nature of beauty products that can be found in one spot, via Walmart, which offers high-end brands such as Guerlain and NARS, as well as affordable brands like L'Oreal and Revlon. We've curated a list of glowy skin and makeup products, including bronzer, highlighter, lip gloss and more, for a wedding day look from Walmart that won't break the bank.
To guarantee that there are no cold feet at a wedding, buy some stylish socks for the groomsmen. Fun prints abound in men's sockwear, from those featuring vintage Mickey Mouse illustrations to adorable dogs to the Rolling Stones' iconic tongue-and-lips logo. Because stylish men's socks offer guys the primo opportunity to energize their ensembles, look for funky, colorful sock sets that will bring chic to their feet.
The dual traits of fun and quality are a rarity in men's socks, but we've curated a list of socks that accomplish both. Groomsmen socks make awesome wedding party presents, so seek out yours among the favorites that we found at ASOS, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
Every love story is unique: For the bride, an alternative engagement ring becomes her outward symbol of a one-of-a-kind love. Unusual rings are embraced by the bride who requires statement-making jewelry, and her choice of style runs the gamut from quietly minimalistic to exuberantly ornate.
Sure, the white round diamond has long been the classic engagement ring, but many gorgeous options exist beyond that typical style. Some are rendered unique due their setting design, be it modern or vintage-inspired. Others stand out due to their metal, ranging from rose gold to a highly-polished platinum band. A constellation of gemstones is there for one's choosing, including deeply red rubies, ink-toned sapphires, blushing morganites and opalescent pearls. Here, we've selected the most stunning alternative engagement rings from Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus and more.
