    Aside from the whole “swapping vows” bit, I’m pretty sure the most important part of a wedding is when everyone hits the dance floor—and it’s not a party till your grandma breaks a sweat. (Just ask my grandma Viv.) If your second order of business on your wedding day is to shake your groove thang, check out the newest wedding dresses from Saja—the label behind my favorite dress to wear as a wedding guest. With free-flowing fabrics and silhouettes that don’t bind or pinch, they’re pretty much a dream for a bride who wants to dance, dance, dance the night away.

    If you’re thinking about putting your bridesmaids in mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses, send them this picture from Ashley Tisdale’s wedding as a lesson in how to nail it. (High School Musical fans, please notice Vanessa Hudgens on the right in pink.)


    As I’ve said in the past, to pull off mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses without your wedding party looking messy, the dresses should have at least one thing in common. Here, they’re all the same length and fabric: chiffon. (There might be some tulle in there too.) And the colors aren’t matchy-matchy, but they’re all in a “dusk-y moonlit evening” palette—which is to say there isn’t a jewel tone or a jarring tropical hue among them. And I’m 96 percent sure they’re all by Monique Lhuillier, which also makes them look cohesive. (Ashley’s wedding planner, Lisa Vorce*, tagged Monique in another snap from Ashley’s wedding. It could be because Ashley’s dress (and only Ashley’s dress) is Monique, but I’m pretty sure I recognize those bridesmaid dresses from Monique’s collections.)

    Runways, shmunways. Who wants to look at clothes when there are all these gorgeous engagement rings to feast your eyes on?


    Engagement Ring 1
    1-real-girl-diamond-engagement-rings

    When Amber and her husband celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary, he surprised her with another band. You’re going to need more fingers if this keeps up, girl ;)


    Engagement Ring 2
    2-real-girl-diamond-engagement-rings

    Emily’s boyfriend proposed at her parents’ house on a lake in Arkansas while they were visiting from D.C. “He designed the ring himself,” she says, “It took him six months and was truly a labor of love.”


    Engagement Ring 3
    3-real-girl-diamond-engagement-rings

    Mona’s boyfriend picked up this vintage 1920s sparkler at an auction.


    Engagement Ring 4
    4-real-girl-diamond-engagement-rings

    Margaret’s engagement ring features a center stone from her fiance’s grandmother’s engagement ring. He incorporated the diamond in an an art deco-style setting with petal-inspired side stones, which Margaret especially loves, since she’ll wear her grandmother’s wedding band, which is etched with a floral motif. Lovely!


    Engagement Ring 5
    5-real-girl-diamond-engagement-rings

    Mallory’s boyfriend proposed on the beach by her parents’ house with this pretty sparkler while they were vacationing together.

    I’ve been patiently waiting to check out Courteney Cox’s engagement ring, and she finally flashed it while making her way out of Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood last night. (Courteney and Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid were engaged in June, in case you forgot.)

    1-courteney-cox-engagement-ring-picture-2014-johnny-mcdaid-0911


    Obviously we’re going in for a closer look:

    2-courteney-cox-engagement-ring-picture-2014-johnny-mcdaid-0911


    I’m assuming the ring is twisted, and that stone next to her pinkie is the center stone. I’m not sure if it’s pear- or marquise-shaped, but it looks like there are two round stones to the left of it, so I’d assume there are two round stones to the right too. It looks like all the stones are bezel-set, which is typical of the designer behind the ring, Jennifer Meyer, who shared this pic post-engagement:

    The snap was captioned: “I guess he liked it so he put a Jennifer Meyer ring on it!! Xo”

    It looks like the stones are in the same position there—with the bigger stone next to her pinkie—so maybe the ring is asymmetrical? I think I can get behind that, but I'd like to see an unfuzzy picture, so I'll be keeping an eye on JenMeyerJewelry, a must-follow on Instagram. (Unless you’re going to empty your bank account for diamond-studded bracelets, understated necklaces, or dainty rings. If you’re a pretty-jewelry shopaholic, avoid Jennifer Meyer at all costs.)

    If you can handle swooning over jewelry without blowing your rent, check out all the Jennifer Meyer offerings at Barneys.

    Thoughts on Courteney Cox’s engagement ring? And are you a Jennifer Meyer fan?

    I adore that turquoise necklace that I linked to, but it’s either sold out or not in stores yet. Lucky for my mortgage.

    There are a handful of nail polish colors so classic that they're routinely requested by name at nail salons and sought out on shelves—including a few gorgeous neutrals perfect for brides who want their manicure to be elegant but understated (but don't want a French mani).

    One such polish: OPI Bubble Bath.

    As if it weren't already a perfect option for brides, it had a moment on the spring 2015 Fashion Week (the runway shows are just wrapping up). Here it is at BCBG Max Azria.

    neutral-wedding-nail-polish

    And here it is at Reem Acra. I love how it's almost a non-color and yet makes nails shiny and uniform.

    neutral-wedding-nail-polishes-2

    If Bubble Bath is too sheer and nude for you, consider another classic soft nail polish color that made a statement at Fashion Week: Essie Fiji. It's a creamy opaque pink, so it pops just a bit as a pastel; it's seriously pretty on toes too. Here it is at the Naeem Khan show.

    Do you love either of these classic neutral nail polish ideas for brides? Or is there another neutral shade you plan to use? Share below!

    If your idea of a “nightmare wedding dress” involves yanking up a strapless gown all night—or worse, having your lady lumps fall out on the dance floor—check out these four gowns. All have ultra-feminine illusion necklines that can promise a little bit of modesty (depending on how sheer the “illusion” portion is) and prevent a wardrobe malfunction. They’re kind of like the wedding dress equivalent of your favorite T-shirt. Except, you know, a jillion times prettier.

    Wedding Dress 1

    Madison James Style MJ10 from Allure Bridals.


    Wedding Dress 2
    2-illusion-neckline-wedding-dresses-0911

    You might remember this one as April Kepner’s wedding dress on Grey’s Anatomy. Waking Up by Peter Langner.


    Wedding Dress 3
    3-illusion-neckline-wedding-dresses-0911

    Farah Gown by Watters.

    You almost can’t see the illusion part on this dress:

    Reem Acra.

    Here, let’s zoom in. It’s probably two inches below her collarbone. See? And yes, the bodice of the dress is see-through here, but you could obviously get it lined for your wedding.

    Betsey Johnson took a pass on sour-faced models and sent some smiling Real Housewives down her runway instead. Strutting in Betsey’s spring-summer 2015 collection—“geared to brides of all orientations”—RHONY’s Kristen Taekman*, RHOBH’s Camille Grammer, and RHOA’s Cynthia Bailey were unrecognizable. (That’s them, below, from the left.)

    That’s the closing gown on RuPaul's Drag Race contestant Sharon Needles. (Contestant William Belli and transgender model Isis King also walked the runway.)

    And just because I love a nod to #samelove, here are two hand-in-hand “groom” models.

    6-betsey-johnson-real-housewives-0911


    Thoughts on Betsey Johnson’s latest collection?

    The closing gown would be really striking on a real-life bride, I think. And I would kill to own the pink-belted dress in black. I’d wear it to every party for the rest of eternity—and, heck, probably at the office. (What? Totally profesh with a blazer.)

    P.S. Fawnia chatted up Betsey Johnson before the show. Here’s the dirt on Dancing With the Stars.

    Summer may be coming to an end, but that doesn't mean you have to put away pretty pastel details—especially when it comes to your wedding-day look! No, we don't mean you have to purchase a pale-hue wedding dress in order to be on-trend (though we do have quite a few favorites!). Rather, fashion-forward brides are selecting wedding-ready accessories in ultra-soft hues for a chic pop of color to an otherwise all-white look.

    Trending-Now-Pastel-Accessories

    1. Clutch, mint alligator bag with crystal quartz, Marchesa; 2. Bracelet, ombre pink-sapphire bracelet, Paolo Costagli; 3. Ring, yellow-sapphire and diamond ring set in 18-karat yellow gold, Irina Ferry; 4. Ring, amethyst and white-sapphire ring set in 18-karat white gold, Kalan by Suzanne Kalan; 5. Ring, pink-tourmaline ring with diamonds, Carelle; 6. Heels, pink leather sandals, $515, Alexander Wang

    Luckily for the bride-to-be who wants to add a pastel accessory to her look, there's no shortage of pretty choices! Designers practically flooded their fall runways with pale pink, mint green, and yellow options that are the perfect addition to your bridal wardrobe.

    Some of our favorites statement-making pieces included barely-there-hue shoes and jewelry. A petal-pink leather sandal would be a gorgeous complement to a trendy tea-length wedding dress. Offset your engagement ring with a colorful bauble, like a white-gold-and-amethyst stunner. Prefer your jewelry to be more understated? We loved a yellow-sapphire ring with just the right hint of color and sparkle.

    Nothing will yell “Let’s party!” louder than a pair of gold shoes peeking out from under your wedding dress. I mean, when your feet are decked out like golden mirror balls, dancing the night away is pretty much mandatory.


    Yes, I know some of these are obscenely expensive, but I couldn’t resist sharing them. {Hello, $1,200 heels! Otherwise known as “six months of car payments.” } But there are a bunch of affordable pairs, including two that are just $29.99.

    Would you wear gold wedding shoes? Which of these pairs is your favorite?

    If you have a sparkly engagement ring on your finger, you probably don’t want to take it off. Which is why, even seven years post-proposal, I knead bread and lotion my kids after bath time while wearing my engagement ring. Both bread dough and baby lotion* can dull a diamond’s shine, but the residue from either is easy enough to soak off. (Here's how Drew Barrymore and I clean our engagement rings.) But here are two times even I—the last person to take off her engagement ring—will go bare-fingered.

    1-engagement-ring-care-0912

    Side note: How fantastic is this engagement ring? The Tulip Ring with a Cushion Diamond in Rose Gold from Kwiat, price upon request.


    1) Swimming, Especially In Cold Water. As any bath aficionado will tell you, a good soak will leave your skin shriveled—and a ring in danger of slipping off. Cold water, which can further shrink your skin, makes a swim extra-perilous.

    2) Deep-Cleaning Your Home. My ring stays on when I’m spraying down the kitchen counters at night, but before any projects that involve harsh chemicals (wiping down the windows with ammonia, de-crusting the oven with oven-cleaner) I deposit my ring in my jewelry box. Chemicals are bad for both stones and metal, and can permanently damage both.

    *The ingredients in baby lotion probably won’t hurt your ring—especially if you use an ultra-gentle kind, like I do. But if you’re slathering something more harsh on yourself (say, something with “acid” on the ingredients list) it’s probably best to take off your ring then, too.

    Are you reluctant to take off your engagement ring? Or do you cast it aside as soon as you get home at night?

    Half the people I follow on Instagram are wedding photographers, so 10 minutes of scrolling usually turns out enough wedding prettiness to make my head explode. Here are 10 stunning photos from wedding photographers I adore:


    This one might be my favorite. Here’s the caption: “Only a fan of jumping photos when I don't prompt them. I love these two people.”

    While waiting not-so-patiently for pictures of Lauren Conrad’s wedding dress, I stumbled across photos of the wedding of Princess Maria Theresia von Thurn und Taxis and Hugo Wilson. The bride, a member of Germany’s Princely House of Thurn and Taxis, wore gown painted with outsize golden roses. (Here’s a really interesting article on her family.) And here is her wedding dress:

    It’s very different from what we usually see on royalty, with all the exposed skin up top. I like.

    If you believe the wedding magazines with their pages of itemized planning checklists, it’s going to take you at least 12 months to plan your wedding. But I got engaged on October 31, and there’s no way we were waiting a year-plus to swap vows. So I’m happy to report from the other side {We were married the following July. } that it’s totally possible to plan a wedding in less than 365 days. Here are some easy ways to fast-forward the planning process.

    1-how-to-plan-a-wedding-quickly-0915

    Kelly and Patrick planned their wedding in weeks! Click her for more pics.


    1. Minimize the DIYs. One well-intentioned spin on Pinterest and you’ll want to hand-carve your wedding invitations into bark. I get it. But you already have a shocking number of to-dos to check off, so you don’t need to add “Skin birch tree” to the list. If you’re in a hurry, leave everything you can to the pros, who are used to hustling.

    2. Be flexible with your date. Popular dates (any long weekend) and days (Saturday) are booked up quickly. Figure out which dates you absolutely CAN’T do (the weekend of your mom’s marathon or your sister’s college orientation) and go from there. If you start the process insisting on a must-have date, you’re bound to hit roadblocks at every turn.

    3. Skip traditional wedding dress boutiques. Most boutiques want three or four months to fulfill your wedding dress order. If you need a quicker turnaround here are three faster options: 1) Check out Watters’ rush-delivery dresses. 2) Buy something off the rack, like this sleek, chic $135 Ralph Lauren gown. 3) Rent your dress. This to-die-for Reem Acra gown can be yours for just $70 (SEVENTY BUCKS!) from Rent the Runway.

    4. Trim your guest list. You’ll have considerably more options if you can get your guest list down to around 125 guests. Loads of venues just can’t accommodate more, and those that can book up quickly. Even more options will open up if you go less than 100.

    5. Stick to one venue. If you can pass on a religious ceremony at a church, synagogue, etc., you won’t have to coordinate dates and times between your ceremony and reception sites, which will be twice as hard as locking down a date and time at one.

    6. Don’t consider every last option. You didn’t date EVERY guy out there before promising forever to your groom, so don’t feel like you need to interview EVERY caterer (or florist or band leader) out there before signing on the dotted line. I’m not saying you should settle for the first Tom, Dick, or hairstylist who comes along. But do your research, narrow down your vendor selections to no more than three, then pick your favorite.

    Did you plan your wedding in less than a year? How did you streamline the process? Or are you a bride who needs at LEAST two years of planning time?

    Jackie Bouvier and John F. Kennedy were married on September 12, 1953, in Newport, Rhode Island, in front of some 700 wedding guests. In honor of what would have been the couple’s 61st anniversary, various news outlets have been trotting out pictures of their wedding day, with a dapper JFK in a morning coat, and Jackie looking radiant in her now-iconic wedding dress—which, it turns out, she hated.

    1-jackie-kennedy-wedding-dress-picture-0916


    According to Time, the 24-year-old bride—“already a tastemaker with a reputation for ‘devil-may-care chic’”—wanted an unfussy dress with sleek lines. Instead, she “bowed to family pressure to wear something more traditional, despite thinking it looked like a lampshade.”

    Let’s go in for a closer look. (Who needs the groom, anyway? I kid, I kid.)

    2-jackie-kennedy-wedding-dress-picture-0916

    Here's a slide show of their wedding day, if you're interested.


    The “lampshade” dress and its 50 yards of ivory silk taffeta almost didn’t see the light of day when a pipe burst in designer Ann Lowe’s New York studio a week before Jackie and JFK’s nuptials. The dress—which had originally taken eight weeks to cut and sew—was re-created by the designer and her team just in time for the wedding.

    Talk about pre-wedding stress.

    Thoughts on Jackie’s wedding dress? Love or hate? And do you like it less knowing that she hated it?


    I kind of do!

    I’m guessing neither of these BHLDN dresses is what first comes to mind when you think of your dream wedding dress, but they’re both incredibly enchanting.

    This one is short and has peekaboo sides, but it’s just sooooo romantic. I can’t picture anything more lovely for a city-hall bride. (It’s also cute as a reception dress, which BHLDN is billing it as.)

    1-unique-wedding-dresses-0917

    Lara Dress by Tadashi Shoji, $440.

    And this dress was one of my favorites on the runways, but it was actually meant as a bridesmaid dress. BHLDN is calling it a reception dress—with the blush and the sequins it certainly isn’t a super-traditional dress for a ceremony—but I see no reason it can’t head down the aisle. And, get this, it’s just $480.

    2-unique-wedding-dresses-0917

    Lucca Gown by Watters, $480.


    And finally, we all know I’ve been trying to make the wedding romper happen for ages (for brides and guests) and I think you guys are finally going to be on board with me when you see this:

    3-unique-wedding-dresses-0917

    Prato Romper by Watters, $275.


    SO DAMN CUTE. Even if you’re not a “wedding romper” type of girl, you have to admit it’s great for a bridal shower. (They don’t sell it in black for guests, but they should.)

    Click here to see all the newest offerings from BHLDN for brides, 'maids, and more.

    Would you wear any of these on your wedding day?

    P.S. All the looks were modeled by a real-life couple, which I find adorable.

    anthropologie-wedding-registry


    Sensible dishes? Meh. Silverware for 12? Snooze-fest. Starting today brides and grooms can create a wedding registry through Anthropologie—and suddenly all those practical gifts you wanted before seem boring, right?

    Here are 15 things I’d put on my gift list:

    Of course you can manage your registry online, and here’s a list of brick-and-mortar stores where couples can get registry help:

    • Seattle (1509 5th Avenue)
    • Beverly Hills
    • Wayne, Pennsylvania
    • Chicago (111 East Chicago Avenue)
    • Southlake, Texas
    • New York (Soho)

    I can’t explain why I’ve always felt a kinship with Holly Madison, the platinum blond former Girls Next Door star, current mom to a sweet babe named Rainbow. Maybe it’s because I feel like she’s a reality star who actually seems real. Or maybe it’s because I have a secret, deep-seated desire to be a burlesque star. In any event, I follow Holly on Instagram, and this pretty much cements my (imaginary) friendship with her. Here’s a photo her husband shared on their one-year wedding anniversary. (She and Pasquale Rotella were married at Disneyland last September.)



    And here’s a photo Holly posted yesterday, captioned: “Who wore it better? IHOP spoon or H-Mad?”


    Love her.

    Who else wants to be friends with Holly Madison? I know I’m not alone! (Beth.)

    life-changing-beauty-products

    I can think of one really great thing about spending $8.2 billion on your wedding: It makes even the fanciest beauty products practically free in comparison. So go ahead, get the best of the best when it comes to your wedding-day makeup. Here are a few spendy items that I personally promise you are truly life-changing. (Just beware: As with expensive jeans, once you've gone there, it's hard to go back.)

    1. DiorShow Blackout Mascara

    Of all the things I have discovered during my seven-ish years writing about beauty for Glamour, this mascara is the best one. It gives the most dramatic long-and-thick black lashes you'll ever see—perfect for making your eyes pop on your wedding day and in all those photos. For a less-intense version, try the regular DiorShow mascara.

    2. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

    This foundation will ruin you for all other foundations. It melts on like part of your skin and comes in shades to flatter every skin tone—without ever going orange, even after a long day of wear. I wore this foundation for my wedding and got addicted, even though I'd never been a foundation-wearer before. Now I use it for every special occasion.

    3. Murad Renewing Eye Cream

    As a beauty writer, it's hard to commit to one eye cream; you're always getting samples of new ones. But once I tried this, I was devoted. I request more and more jars of this, passing up even pricier formulas. The reason? I'm not a patient person, and this Murad cream gives immediate, visible results. Yes, immediate. I put it on and my fine lines are less obvious, and my makeup looks so much more seamless on top. Even if you don't already use eye cream, start before your wedding! It'll add radiance around your eyes, even if you don't have the slightest lines yet (and it'll help prevent those from appearing any time soon).

    What beauty products will be on your wedding splurge list (or were already)?
