It should go without saying, if you’re having second thoughts about marrying him, YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH WITH THE WEDDING! From the brides I’ve worked with professionally, to friends, to my own mom who 25 years later got divorced, if you’re having doubts, there’s probably a reason.
You don’t have to get your hair done frozen in panic because you’ve got cold feet. You don’t have to apologizing to me because your crying (and not out of happiness) keeps messing up your mascara. And bitching and fighting with your groom over the phone isn’t exactly the way to start “The rest of your lives” together. (Though it does make for good gossip). Your wedding day should be the one day that you’re overflowing with ooey, gooey, annoying, cheeseball love, because once the honeymoon is over, even if it’s the perfect marriage to a perfect man, those mushy feelings won’t always be there (unless he doesn’t the dishes for you out of the blue).
I’m always surprised by couples who don’t communicate with each other. Whether it’s discussing having kids or not, the fact that you’re uncomfortable with your wedding vows or something more simple like, “Hey, I don’t think we should get married”, TALK TO EACH OTHER. Who cares what your mom or the guests think, do what makes you happy. And do us stylists a favor, talk to each other before you’re getting your hair and makeup done. It’s getting awkward in this salon.
Another great money-saving idea: get married at IKEA! That’s what Julie & Willie did in honor of their first date - a reunion 20-years after they graduated from high school together.
Guests were overheard raving about the coordinating decor. Though many were not so thrilled that they had to put together their own chairs for the ceremony. And yes, they did serve Swedish meatballs at the reception. Congratulations on your nuptials! Hopefully the marriage will last longer than the Ikea furniture it was founded on.

Prom or Wedding - the end of the night typically involves alcohol and unprotected sex.
“Prom is the new wedding” — at least when it comes to the price tag, says Hadley Malcolm in USA Today. The springtime high school dance is becoming extremely expensive. “This is social-arms-race spending,” says Jason Alderman at Visa, which recently released a new survey of prom spending. Here, a look at some of the eye-popping numbers:
$1,078 — Amount the average family with teenagers will spend on prom this year
$807 — Amount the average family spent last year
61 — Percent of the costs parents will cover
$1,200 — Amount spent by families earning less than $20,000 a year
$2,635 — Amount spent by families earning $20,000-$29,999 a year
$695 — Amount spent by families earning $40,000-$49,999 a year
$696 — Average Midwestern family’s prom spending
$1,944 — Average Northeastern family’s prom spending
Can we talk about how annoying and stupid it is that chair covers cost so damn much?
They’re chairs. Used for asses. Come on! But brides insist on paying top dollar for them.
Look, if your guests are complaining because your chairs aren’t pretty enough, you’ve doing something really wrong with the rest of your wedding.
We’ve moved on from grieving divorce with a girls night out, to celebrating with official divorce parties, to splurging on divorce rings. Debuted by French jewellery designer Gisele Ganne, this “gold bird skull decorated with a bride’s bouquet and pink gems” is the perfect way to show that divorce isn’t pretty. And neither is your finger if you wear this hideous thing.
Whatever happened to a good old fashion I ate the entire thing divorce cake?

The key to a good marriage is learning how to fight well.
This couple does everything together, from being born in the same hospital ward to marrying each other 22 years later. It was love at birth sight.
Congrats and good luck you two. You know what they say: The more time two people spend together, the less likely they are to meld into the same, crazy, codependent person or get sick of each other over every little thing because THEY’RE NEVER ALONE.
Also, wouldn’t it be hilarious if they turned out to be twins?
Yesterday was Leap Day and apparently tons of women proposed to their boyfriends and then quickly turned around and got married just hours later so they could say they got married on February 29th. * Story here.
For those of you new grooms that woke up in a panic over “your decision” to say yes, there’s no need to stress. The marriage only counts every 4th year, which means you just need to get through 2012 and then you’ve got the next 3 off. Whew!
* At least that’s what I think the story said. I didn’t read the whole thing, because I really don’t care.
Uh oh! Virginia Republicans have a new proposal: Mandatory vaginal probe testing BEFORE the wedding.
“Honey, I know exactly how to make your wedding perfect… by not letting you have a say in any of it.”
