Dating back to the 1600s, cufflinks have long been the choice of nattily-attired men for securing the French cuffs on their dress shirts. These small ornamental clasps, once called "sleeve buttons," were made of silver and gold that was often encrusted with precious gems.
Today, one needn't be a true gentleman with an estate and butler to wear cufflinks to a special event. In fact, for a wedding we'd expect no less: After all, cufflinks are a must-wear, especially if yours is a black tie wedding. Plus, they're a great way to add a commemorative piece of jewelry to the occasion. They can announce his style, celebrate your bond or underscore his passion for a movie, book or vehicle.
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.
The white ball gown remains the iconic wedding dress for a princess bride. Think: Cinderella, Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy. Such wedding gown imagery is bound tightly within our collective memories, yet modernity has brought many a twist to the time-honored silhouette. One is the wedding jumpsuit. Another recently popularized style is the two-piece wedding ensemble, a new choice for the iconoclasts among us. The two-piece bridal outfit allows a bride various options. With a crop top and skirt combo, fit brides can subtly (or not so subtly...) flaunt their washboard abs. A voluminous skirt paired with a simple, structured top creates a stunning display. A slinky skirt and form-fitting top can allow for movement within structure. Here, we've made it a cinch to find your two-piece wedding gown by listing amazing options from Nordstrom, Etsy, David's Bridal and more.
Ah, the honeymoon: It's the glittering light at the end of the wedding tunnel.

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!
