    Ladies, wedding flowers may have officially gotten out of hand, with crystal-bedecked centerpieces the size of small trees, and bouquets with feathers and fringe-y things that are bigger than the bride. They're FLOWERS, people. They're pretty before you go bananas, so I recommend you keep everything simple and let their natural loveliness shine through, like they do in the five photos:






    All of the flowers above were designed by from Fieldwork Flowers is in Portland, Oregon, using almost all locally grown and seasonal flowers. The company creates everything from super-pretty everyday bouquets to beautiful wedding bouquets and centerpieces.

    Have you seen any out-of-hand wedding flowers? Which of the arrangements above is your favorite?

    Another "happily ever after": Famed interior designer Nate Berkus married Jeremiah Brent today, E News has confirmed. The two—who got engaged atop Peru's Machu Picchu last April—reportedly swapped vows at the New York Public Library.

    Jeremiah told E News in March that he and his groom would say "I do" in front of 200 guests. "It's going to be a really sexy wedding ceremony, like really masculine but sexy feel. Its been really great and been a really fun process for us to blend our aesthetics together and really create this whole moment."

    I can't wait to see pics!

    While planning a wedding, the handsome duo also found time to model for Banana Republic's spring campaign:


    Thoughts on Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent's springtime NYC wedding?

    Congrats, kids! (And those sun showers in the city this afternoon were good luck, I'm sure!)

    Perhaps I'm phenomenally insecure, but I always like to look my extra-best as a wedding guest. First of all, I know photos are going to be live-posted, tagged, and hashtagged ALL over social media as the wedding's happening. And even if no one's on Facebook during the wedding {Yeah, right. } the bride and groom will likely have pics of their wedding guests displayed all over their home for the next 30 or so years, and I don't want to look back at a photo of myself in a dumpy cocktail dress every time I visit.

    And if there's a frenemy or an ex-boyfriend on the guest list? Fuggetaboutit. I will be wearing this dress, and there's nothing you can do to stop me:


    This dress—which reminds me of Judy Jetson in the BEST possible way—is one of six dresses that Monique Lhuillier designed exclusively for Rent the Runway, just in time for wedding season. I'm obsessed with the make-'em-look-at-you color and the edgy silhouette. I may have yelled "HOT DAMN!" when I saw the dress on a hanger. (Only slightly mortifying, because I was with a small group of people.)

    This red dress (from the same collection) is a close second in the turn-their-heads category:

    And I love this floral one for a Sunday morning garden wedding:

    There's also this green number, which would be insanely fun to dance in:

    And this pale mint dress, which will get you noticed for entirely different reasons:

    Rounding out the collection is this coral dress, with—hello!—pockets.

    Happy Shower Banner from Etsy seller CuterThanWords, $28.50.

    I was flipping through Instagram yesterday when the cutest thing popped up in my feed from Lipstick,'s new beauty site:

    How fun is that? I don't need a bridal shower favor, by any means, but I feel like I always get one. And sometimes they're SUPER-random. Like, once, I got a plastic cooking utensil (I think it was one of those spoons you use to take pasta out of boiling water) with the bride's name and shower date written on it in metallic Sharpie. I'm sure I used it, but—like I said—random.

    You don't have to give full-size bottles, which could get spendy. Mini bottles are just as cute {And who uses a whole bottle of nail polish, anyway? } and they'll set you back way less. (Here's a four-pack for $6.15.)

    Would you like to get a bottle of nail polish as a shower favor? What's the best shower favor you ever received? The worst? Weirdest?

    Some might call me over-emotional. {**cough, my husband** } I've been known to cry at a good "every kiss begins with Kay" commercial. But I think even the most hard-hearted among you will shed a few happy tears over Sara Bareilles' video for her new song, "I Choose You," which involves helping one adorable guy and one adorable girl each stage a proposal. Just watch:

    How sweet was that? Did you cry? I know I'm not the only crier among us!

    I know, I know. Everyone's all "ball gowns!" and "The Beygency!" but let me pull you away from that fun for a minute so we can look at some gorgeous reader engagement rings.

    Engagement Ring 1

    Alyssa and her boyfriend went wine tasting near Mount Hood, then he proposed in front of a snow-capped mountain. He had their moms waiting in the wings, photographing everything!

    Engagement Ring 2

    Gina and her boyfriend had talked about marriage, but she told him she didn't want to think about it until after she graduated. So he proposed on her graduation day, with her whole family standing by. "I know you wanted to wait until you graduated," he said. "Well, now you have, and I can't wait any longer. I love you!"

    Engagement Ring 3

    Graciela's boyfriend proposed in her apartment. "No pretentiousness or planning," she says. They're getting married this summer.

    Engagement Ring 4

    Gregory proposed to Mia with this vintage ring in the mountains of Colorado. "The floral setting and opal are original," she says, "and he had the little diamonds on either side added because—despite my unconventional taste—he still adheres to the notion that 'diamonds are forever.' Every time I look down at my ring, I am amazed by how well he did!"

    Engagement Ring 5

    Rachel's guy proposed on a hike in Sedona. "He picked it out all on his own, and I love the oval diamond!" she says. "It's my dream ring!"

    Which of these engagement rings is your favorite?

    Anyone else have the afternoon munchies? How 'bout you make your daily 3 P.M. trek to the vending machine, then join me back here for some wedding cake amazingness.

    Wedding Cake 1

    Wedding Cake 2This one was displayed with mini cakes. Mini cakes!

    Wedding Cake 3

    Wedding Cake 4

    Wedding Cake 5

    Wedding Cakes 6, 7, and 8This bakery kind of nails it with the edible flowers.

    Wedding Cake 9Oh, you like the edible flowers? Bam!

    All of these edible works of art were crafted by Cakes by Krishanthi, a cake bakery (cakery?) in London. Paging Pippa Middleton! (I'm still thinking Pippa and Nico Jackson are going to announce their engagement soon, and she's certain to tap British vendors for their wedding.)

    Which of these wedding cakes is your favorite? And what are you munching on for Treat O'Clock?

    I'm eyeing the Laffy Taffy in Emmett's Easter basket. Shhhhh! And probably a French roast in my Keurig.

    Emma Roberts finally gave us a decent look at the engagement ring Evan Peters proposed with, and it's quite lovely. Here's her left hand on Extra yesterday:


    Obviously we're going in for a closer look:


    The diamond is round, which we knew, but this is the first time we're seeing how delightfully dainty the halo is. (I feel like it looks awkward when a halo setting has diamonds that are almost as big as the center stone.) And I'm loving the gold setting.

    Thoughts on Emma Roberts' engagement ring from Evan Peters?

    I'm really digging it.

    Regardless of your style or the vibe of your wedding, your dream wedding dress was probably on the Watters/Wtoo runway this season. There were just so many wedding dresses, for so many different types of brides. Here are four of my favorites:

    With Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding just a few weeks away, the Internet is about to break with all the crazy Kimye wedding rumors flying around. So Kim kindly just took to Twitter to clear some things up. Here's the latest:

    So that's the latest. Does anything above surprise you? Were you hoping for another wedding special?

    If we're being honest, I kind of was.

    I had so much fun digging up the details on Victoria Beckham's engagement rings (plural) last week. So I thought I'd throw it way back this week, with this gasp-inducing sparkler:


    That big ol' piece of pretty is the engagement ring congressman John F. Kennedy proposed to Jackie Bouvier with back in the '50s. The ring features a 2.84-carat emerald and a 2.88-carat diamond and a whole bunch of diamond accents. I looooove it.

    Thoughts on the engagement ring John F. Kennedy use to propose to Jackie Bouvier? Would you like a similar engagement ring?

    I absolutely adore how unique it is. It's a lot of bling, but I'm pretty sure I could handle it.

    This week has been a whirlwind of gorgeous red-carpet hairstyles, largely thanks to the 2014 Met Gala—the most dressed-to-the-nines celebrity event of them all (other than maybe the Oscars, but that's debatable). There were endless delightful updos—see a bunch of them over at our new beauty site, Lipstick—but the one I can't stop thinking about as a brand-new wedding hairstyle option was seen on It Girl Cara Delevingne. It's not for traditional brides, but if creativity and a little edge are your things, imagine how jaw-dropping this necklace-adorned, side-swept style would look with a wedding gown?


    Here's a great reverse-view shot of Cara's hair (while she was posing with some other glamorous ladies). The draping of the necklace is so elegant yet cool. You could even choose something with rhinestones for added sparkle and a bridal vibe.


    What do you think of this wedding hairstyle idea?

    Amal Alamuddin is pretty much every wedding dress designer's dream bride. She's got the gorgeous looks and the handsome groom—and all eyes the world over are going to be on this wedding. Here, 10 top designers dreamed up 11 over-the-top amazing wedding dresses for the future Mrs. George Clooney.

    Wedding Dress 1: Anne Barge

    "My vision for Amal Alamuddin's wedding gown is one of understated, sophisticated elegance. I see her in a column sheath gown of ivory silk and worsted with a very low square back, accented at the midriff and hemline with beaded embroidery and a voluminous detachable chapel train. I can just imagine her wearing this on her wedding day at George Clooney's Lake Como villa!"

    Wedding Dress 2: Val Stefani

    "I envision Amal Alamuddin wearing a sweetheart fit-to-flare gown with an antique layered lace skirt. The cathedral-length train adds a bit of drama since she will be one to watch as she takes her vows to America's most talked about actor, George Clooney."

    Wedding Dress 3: Victor Harper

    "I created this intricate bustier top wit ha silk charmeuse skirt and a dramatic train. I envision her wearing a traditional veil and a french twist. She will look classy and glamours on her big day."

    Wedding Dress 4: Yumi Katsura

    "When envisioning Amal Alamuddin on her wedding day, I wanted to design a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline that showed of her sleek form with intricate embellishments. Sweet and classy yet daring."

    Wedding Dress 5: Winnie Couture

    “Amal Alamuddin is a bright, highly intelligent beauty with an understated aesthetic style. For her wedding dress, I had in mind a refined fit-to-flare gown featuring re-embroidered lace, tailored with a statement neckline and delicate draping for a classic yet romantic vibe.”

    Wedding Dress 6: Jean Ralph Thurin

    "This dress is truly the inspiration for my current collection—it's the Old Hollywood red carpet embodied by the likes of Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren. So I can imagine Amal in this gown because it would showcase her figure as well as exude her timeless beauty and sophistication."

    Wedding Dress 7: Simone Carvalli

    "I would love to see Amal step into the spotlight in a beautifully draped silk charmeuse gown. This gown features sexy illusion cutouts that are perfect for a outdoor summer wedding."

    Wedding Dress 8: Eugenia Couture

    "Since this is the most talked about celebrity wedding, I created a non-traditional high-to-low gown with dramatic ruffled trim skirt and a keyhole back to add a bit of flair."

    Wedding Dress 9: Ines Di Santo

    "This strapless mermaid silloutte will perfectly accentuate Amal Alamuddin's feminine form. I added a dramatic illusion corseted back for an extra wow factor, since she is marrying the most famous bachelor of all — Mr Clooney."

    Wedding Dress 10: Ines Di Santo

    "I created a more consertive gown with sheer tattoo lace which will perfectly pop with her olive complexion .The fitted shillouette is embellished with satin organza featuring graduated lace treatment. I wish the couple a lifetime of happiness together. She will be a magnificent bride!"

    Wedding Dress 11: Gemy Maalouf

    "This corseted silk dress features a symmetrical design with slimming bias cut treatment. Its the perfect gown for Amal Alamuddin to wear on her wedding day. Sleek, simple, and sexy. I would be honored to dress Amal Alamuddin on her big day as someone also from Lebanon who contributes to several philanthropic endeavors. She is one to watch."

    Which of these wedding dresses do you think Amal Alamuddin would wear to marry George Clooney? Which would you wear to marry George Clooney your groom?

    I pick No. 10!

    Fine, the photo above probably didn't come close to breaking Instagram. But it did garner a whopping 23,000+ likes, which is pretty awesome. So I wanted to share the "pro" shot—and four more new wedding dresses from the designer, Hayley Paige, that I think you guys will love just as much.

    Your planner is there to help you bring your dream wedding to life. That said, a wedding planner is not your personal assistant or your family therapist — even if some brides believe that's part of the job description. Of course, planners can't tell their clients they're acting like a bridezilla, but they can tell us! Here, wedding planners reveal the things they don't have the heart to say to your face. Take notes, ladies.


    "We want you to make your own decisions. This is your wedding. Yes, flexible couples are the dream to any planner, but indecisive clients can be a nightmare. It makes both of our roles so much more difficult when a client can't make a single decision without us. The perfect combination is a nice collaboration of ideas." —celebrity event designer Brett Galley from Hollywood POP

    "You are not a professional event planner so please stop acting like you know everything about weddings after reading two blog articles and surfing Pinterest." —event planner Shimona Mayo, author of Power Plays for Brides

    "I cannot be your secret-bearer. If you want to lie to your family about wedding costs, do so on your own and leave me out of it!" —celebrity wedding planner Donnie Brown of Donnie Brown Weddings and Events

    "Our contract clearly outlines what we have offered to assist you with. We often go above and beyond this, but sometimes you take advantage. We are not your personal assistants." —Mindy Home, senior events manager at AE Events

    "I'm not your friend; I'm your wedding planner. Don't call me to cry about fights with your bridesmaids or the groom. If it's a real problem, email me to schedule a conference call. But share your personal trials and tribulations with your mother and maid of honor. I'm not being paid to hear the details about how badly behaved some of your wedding party and family are prior to arrival unless you think they're going to misbehave at the actual wedding. The only reason to call me after 9 P.M. without a prescheduled call is if the groom is on fire and if you are getting married next week."—professional wedding planner Sandy Malone of Weddings in Vieques

    "We cannot stop time, create more time or get your time back. We'd love it if we could! We give you deadlines for a reason. If they aren't followed, unfortunately you may lose time, lose a vendor or incur rush fees." Sojourner Auguste, owner of Erganic Design

    "Don't get hyper-focused on certain layout details. Where your cake table goes or what side the favor box is on is not something that you need to stress about. Many times wedding planners make game-day decisions on layout, and you, and especially your guests, will never know the difference. Let the wedding planner worry about the minutiae." —Robyn Bruns, president of Red Letter Event Planning

    "Do not call, text, and email on the same issue within a short time span. I usually have a rapid-fast response time, and my clients know this, but they should also know that I can't respond when I am meeting with another client or vendor. Leaving a voice mail and then following up five minutes later with an email to say, 'I left you a voice mail" and then a text that says, "Please check your voice mail' 10 minutes after that doesn't help you get a response sooner." —Tracie Domino, founder and creative director of Tracie Domino Events

    "Wedding planners and designers don't make as much money as you think. This job is a labor of love. Sometimes when someone asks about the cost of my services their eyes get big and I hear, 'Oh you're rich.' What you have to take into account are how many hours I have to work in order to earn my fee. I pay for my gas, overhead, health insurance, staff. In other words, I am an independent contractor. Most weddings I plan are at least 12 months away. So in order to get a better idea of how much I make, take my fee and divide that by 365 days." —certified green event designer Veronica Cole

    "A wedding theme is just that, one theme! Not a whole mix match of Pinterest concepts all mashed together. There is such a thing as too much." —Matiana Mitchell of Matiana Mitchell Designs

    "Unless he wants to go, don't drag your fiancé to all of your appointments (and be OK with it!)" — Gabriela Solano, wedding planner at VIDA Floral and florist on

    —Written by Elizabeth Mitchell for Brides

    If you follow Glamour on Instagram, you may have noticed I spent a bunch of time elbow-deep in diamonds earlier this week.

    You might recognize the rings on the left, because pretty much all your favorite celebs are wearing dainty little diamond-encrusted pieces from Red C Jewels.


    That's Emma Stone in these earrings, Jenna Ushkowitz (or her arm, anyway) in this bracelet and this ring, and Taylor Swift in these earrings—which Vanessa Hudgens also wears—and possibly a Red C ring. I can't quite tell.

    And on less-famous hands in the Insta pic—starting on the left at the top—that's the Dainty Diamond Heart, Peace and Love, Fashion Arrow, Dainty Diamond Star, and Dainty Diamond Circle rings. And on the right hand—from the top—the Moon Beam Halo, Juliette in rose, yellow, and white gold, Tiara Halo, and the Ava Twistengagement rings. Whew! That may have been my bling-iest Wednesday ever!

    Red C is currently offering ILY stacking rings for Mother's Day—love the rose gold. I think for next Mother's Day, Red C should do the rest of the letters on rings for moms, so we can wear our kids' initials. So cute!

    Thoughts on the dainty everyday Red C diamonds? Which of the engagement rings is your favorite?

    Would it be crazy to wear the three Juliette rings stacked as your engagement ring? How 'bout on your right hand? Because I really love them together. But if I can only pick one, I'll go with the Ava on the bottom.

    It's easy to understand why lots of modern brides shy away from wearing a veil: You don't want to look like you're dragging two miles of fabric behind you down the aisle. Plus, it seems like it would be easy to get lost in all that tulle, right? And still, I think every bride should at least try a veil when she's wedding dress shopping. (And wedding tastemaker Randy Fenoli says wearing a veil is a must.) There are just so many styles to choose from, I'm certain there's a veil for every bride. Yes, even you. Here's a primer:

    BIRDCAGE VEILJust covers your face.

    En Paris Veil from Enchanted Atelier.

    FLYAWAY VEILFalls just below your shoulders.

    Maxine Two-Tier Flyaway Veil from Etsy seller JesseCiani.

    ELBOW-LENGTH VEILGoes down to your elbows.

    Ariel Taub Bella Veil from Kleinfeld.

    FINGERTIP VEILGrazes your fingertips.

    White by Vera Wang Two-Tier Mid Length Veil with Horsehair and Lace from David's Bridal.

    BALLET- OR WALTZ-LENGTH VEILFalls at about ankle-length.

    Veil by Blossom Veils.

    CHAPEL-LENGTH VEILHas a not-too-crazy train.

    Montegue from Tony Federici for Watters.

    CATHEDRAL-LENGTH VEILDrags way behind you.

    French Alencon Cathedral-Length Veil from Etsy seller fascinatingbride.

    Just keep in mind that a longer veil signals a more formal wedding (and vice versa) so you probably don't need a cathedral-length veil for your city hall wedding—and, a birdcage veil might be a little too low-key for a black-tie affair.

    Are you planning on wearing a veil on your wedding day? Which one of these is your favorite?

    It looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West sent out their wedding invitations. (Don't worry. I'm sure your is in the mail.) Us Weekly scored a photo of the invite, which I'm feeling pretty meh about.

    Click here to see a photo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding invitation, and then come back here to discuss, please!

    I mean, I'm sure the paper's like two-thirds of an inch thick, and the ink is 14K gold. But the design itself is, well, boring, IMHO. I'm picturing their wedding as a grand, formal affair and the invite looks kind of un-special. I'm sure they were going for "understated" but it feels a little too casual, ya know? I also wish she had used her full first name. From one Kim to another, "Kimberly" is such a pretty name, right? Why not use it?

    How are you feeling about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding invitation? Are you a fan? Or were you envisioning something different?

    Kim Kardashian celebrated her bridal shower in Beverly Hills today—and although her wedding invitations were less over-the-top than we imagined they'd be, it seems her shower was anything but.


    According to People, the star, who wore a white dress with pearl straps, was joined by her friends and family at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. And, naturally, the event was reportedly filmed for a future episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

    Kim's sis Khloe Instagramed some pretty adorable pics from what appears to be a photo booth from inside the event (with Kanye

    George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin reportedly toasted their recent engagement among friends in Malibu this evening. According to E!, the low-key engagement party kicked off at Cafe Habana around 7 p.m. The groom was dressed in a blue shirt and jeans, while the bride wore a black blouse and a large-brimmed hat. (I'm assuming she had some kind of skirt or pants on, too, but E! didn't mention those.) The pair were reportedly joined by U2 frontman Bono as well as Rande Gerber (who owns the restaurant) and his wife, Cindy Crawford.

    Read the full story here.

    I'll share more details as they roll in.
