Everyone loves a traditional wedding registry that includes every essential accoutrement for feathering a newlywed nest. That said, some wedding guests choose to take some creative leeway by gifting the newlyweds with uber-special personalized gifts. We have curated such gifts in our fantastic list by including personalized gifts for couples that further style or functionality — or both. So commemorate the couple's big day with these one-of-a-kind items from Neiman Marcus, Uncommon Goods, Shutterfly 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!
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!
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.
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.
