I actually love simple gowns. It is lovely!Deciding on a wedding dress can feel like a lot of pressure, so why not hit up your preparty in the most effortless outfit ever? That was the idea behind The Bachelor star Ashley Spivey’s bridal set, a simple bustier crop top and trousers that she wore the night before her big day. But while we admired her casual coordinates, we can’t say we weren’t just as impressed by her gown choice: a strapless Gabriella number that featured gold embellishment at the waist — a makeshift belt if you will. When Ashley married her love of two years, Steven Hunsberger, their party guests pulled out all the stops, ‘gramming up a storm and offering an all-angles view of Ashley’s lovely looks.
As my cousin is planning her western-country theme wedding in September, I am reflecting on some of the ideas I’m thinking about for this outdoor wedding. Touch of vintage will be used, a barn location with horses for the reception, nice refreshing drinks with an outdoor bar and definitely some brown is used in it. 🙂
OMG, I thought this was hilarious! Happy Thursday WBTers!
You’ve done it all from the flowers, decorations and cake, but nothing could prepare you for some of these wedding mishaps. Check out these hilarious photos of the worst wedding fails of all time!
Pick the Itch
Well, apparently the rest of the bridesmaid didn’t get the memo that it was time to pick at that wedgie….
This bride is either going to laugh her tail off when she gets her wedding photos, or she’s going to be smacking some bridesmaids around for ruining a perfectly good pic. Either way, it would make for an amusing scene.
Best. Photobomb. Ever. This guy gets a 10 for not only the most creative pose, but he also gets bonus points for rocking the red Speed
Simple, this couple is just practicing for when she gives birth! Right?
Chug! Chug! Chug!
Well, at least the guys lifting her up were nice enough to keep her dress off the ground. Stay classy, princess bride.
Cleavage Gone Wrong!!! NOOOOOO….
Ok ladies, everyone likes to show off their assets but this? This is just too much. At least wear a bra to keep those puppies alert! They look like they’re trying to escape!
Great photo! Too bad this poor guy on the bike couldn’t get out of the way in time. At least you can tell by his face it wasn’t on purpose.
Sisters are Forever
Leave it this bride’s sister to photobomb her beautiful picture. Maybe she’s secretly telling us how she feels about the groom.
Thank Heaven for Little Boys
Leave it to the cutest boy in the group to goof up a picture. You can’t get mad at him though. He’s clearly adorable!
Whale of a Time
This couple has to admit this is probably one of the greatest photo moments of their life. Who else can say they were photobombed by a beluga whale?
For the past seven months, my husband and I are trying to have a baby and will not give up the faith either. After 40 years of marriage, I’m so happy for this couple to enjoy their blessing!
From the elegant Navy gowns to the lime green flowers and reception accented decor with the offset colors together. Just the little things can make it a beautiful color theme for a late evening spring and summer wedding
🙂 I love this article I found. I feel it could help you other brides out there.
You are all set to get married after months of careful planning when the unfathomable happens — weather reports show that a hurricane is headed your way. Tropical storms are a known danger in Florida, and as a Miami bride, you have to come to terms with it as a possibility when planning a wedding. Still, having one threaten to rain on your parade can be pretty scary and stressful. With the help of some Miami wedding vendors and experts, we’re sharing five things you must do in the event that there is a hurricane arriving on your big day.
1. Read vendor contracts
It’s important to not freak out and try to avoid thinking about the worst case scenario. Many vendors have varying policies, so it’s important to read your contacts carefully — especially regarding hurricanes or natural disaster-related emergencies. That way, you’ll know exactly what to say and what expect from vendors if you have to sit down and speak with them about canceling or rescheduling the wedding.
Miami wedding photographer Merari Teruel shares that “if a couple cancels the wedding, then the retainer is non-refundable but in case of a fire, casualty, strike, act of God, or other cause beyond anyone’s control and the wedding is postponed and the photographer is unable to provide the services required, the retainer shall be returned with no further liability.” Local DJ Rey “Hurricane” Hernandez says his policy is “simply that [he] gets paid rain or shine.” However, he does give an opportunity to reschedule the date at no charge and based on availability. It truly varies from vendor to vendor, so make sure to read through these contracts fully so that there are no surprises!
2. Delegate bridesmaid duties
If you do decide to change your wedding date, delegating some duties for keeping in touch with guests and vendors to your bridesmaids and maid of honor is essential. Once guests get word of the forecast for your big day, they’re going to start calling and questioning if the event is still going to happen. That should be the least of your worries once you’ve made the decision to keep the wedding date (or post-pone), and delegating is an easy way to alleviate the stress.
3. Use an app or your website to keep in communication
For the bride that doesn’t want to bog down her ‘maids with phone and email duties, updating your wedding website is an easy way to stay connected and inform guests of any weather-related changes. Or, for the more tech-savvy, download (and invite your guests to download) an app like Wedding Party, which helps share important details and stay connected. This is an easy place to start with wedding details if your wedding website is not able to be edited from your location.
4. Don’t forget the post-wedding details
If the storm seems to be imminent, and you are post-poning your big day to a later date, don’t forget about post-wedding details and logistics. Consider changing your honeymoon flight if you’re traveling right after the wedding, discuss the post-wedding brunch details with your families and reschedule with the restaurant venue, and make sure that accommodations can be rescheduled for hotel room blocks.
5. Know that safety comes first
It’s important to assure the safety of your friends, family, and vendors, and while your wedding is most likely the most important day of your life, safety comes first. Yes, it’s your big day, but sacrificing the safety of your family and friends is not something that any bride wants to do. If the rain, winds, and flooding are going to be intense and there is a state-wide emergency, it’s probably best to cancel. If it’s just going to be a heavy downpour in your area, work with your venue to create a beautiful indoor venue — because the show must go on!
