How To Embrace Being A Pregnant Bride

First off, it sounds like double congratulations are in order! Joining futures with your partner can’t get more real than raising a child together, and being a pregnant bride gives you all the more reason to celebrate with your friends and family as you exchange vows with the love of your life and prepare to start a family.

What you want to be thinking on your wedding day: “Wow, gathering all of my favorite people in one place to celebrate the eternal love between me and my partner is pretty magical.” What you don’t want to be thinking on your wedding day: “Holy #$%!, my feet hurt so bad from these shoes.

7 “Something Borrowed” Wedding Ideas

Note: while we will refer to “the bride” here, as the bride was traditionally the subject of this little adage, there’s absolutely no reason that a groom couldn’t follow the same good-luck guidelines. Feel free to interchange “groom” wherever it make sense for you!  You’ve probably heard of the old British wedding tradition where a bride is supposed to wear “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe,” on her wedding day, right? But if you’re like us, you might be a little clueless as to what this actually means. Ostensibly good luck charms, each Read More

Let’s face it: when it comes to wedding fashion, the spotlight has traditionally fallen on the bride and her dress. Thankfully, a shift has been taking place in the world of wedding fashion for some time. The modern groom now approaches his wedding day attire as a reflection of his style and personality. Some grooms are taking the road less traveled and wearing laid-back looks like jeans and dress shirts, even foregoing formal jackets altogether.
