With hundreds of thousands of Syrian men killed in warfare, and an uncertain number fleeing conscription and economic hardship, Syrian women are maintaining cultural traditions in the ways that they still can.
In general, I am suspicious of the wedding dress. In the specific case of the wedding dresses shown at the 2017 spring bridal collections, I think I hate them.
What’s a gal to do if the experience of buying a crystal-studded Pnina Tornai at Kleinfeld’s just isn’t special enough? Well, for merely the price of a used Mercedes (or a new Nissan), she can spend the morning consulting with a bridal magazine editor.
You know who is probably not being showered with enough gifts and attention just for making the huge relationship decision she and her significant other made recently? The bride-to-be in your life. Hear me out.
So many weddings seem to be planned with an eye to the photos and their ultimate appearance in a magazine/bridal style blog/Facebook. Which makes it pretty unsurprising that, apparently, you can now hire a Condé Nast-approved team to style and photograph your special day.
Few things in life will let you know which friends you truly value like creating an invite list for your wedding. One deranged bride with an ax to grind wanted to drive that point home in a Facebook post, enumerating the reasons why some "friends" aren't important enough to make the cut.
Forget about lifting the veil — lift the dress! That is the insane logic applied to this alleged trend of getting the entire bridal party to lift their dresses and stick out their asses for a phun photo op. If this is a real thing, might I suggest that it is the duckface of bridal photo. Except, you know asses.
The wedding is baaaaack! Gone are the years where “forward thinking” people snub the idea of marriage or, at the very least, act "reasonable" and consider "scaling back" — no way. Now folks are really going for it. Let’s hear it for ballooning marital debt, er, bliss.
The run up to the Sochi Olympics has been characterized by paranoia, fear, and copious media references to Vladimir Putin's oft-bare chest. Thank goodness we have these truly wacky Russian wedding photography to distract us from all that terrorism!
Great news if you're looking to plan the trendiest wedding of all time: The Knot has just released a list of "top trends" for the year. And apparently, 90s nostalgia is going to unleash a flood of—brace yourselves, ladies—crop-top wedding dresses.
So much better than a bouquet. (JKJK DON'T do this at your wedding unless you're a terrible person.) (But DO photoshop a cat into all of your wedding pictures.)
Crazy brides are so hot right now/always/especially on TLC. Our latest crazy bride is "Brandy," a woman so deluded by her own right to that cash $$$ that she has inadvertently revealed the true depths of tragedy that make up the wedding industrial complex.
Lots of people choose to eschew the traditional white dress and tux in favor of something a little more "them" when walking down the aisle, and as more and more same-sex couples start marrying, the market for alternative wedding wear can only grow.
It’s summertime, so it’s wedding time. Psyched? No, I know. What should be a maybe fraught but generally lovely tradition of intimacy-made-public, of vulnerability-made-brave, has come to sanction and even require demanding, ‘zilla-ed out brides, wedding websites, multiple pre-wedding showers and parties and gift…
Chen Ying, a TV reporter at a news station in China, was on her way up the aisle to say "I do" (in Chinese, presumably) when a massive earthquake hit the city of Ya'an, where she was getting married. Instead of being all, "Whatever, today's all about me so you can take that earthquake and shove it up your ass," Ying…
I'm so excited for your bachelorette party! It's going to be awesome! I can't wait to go shopping for lingerie to give you as a gift, since sexy-themed presents seem to have become obligatory at these events, whether you've been friends with the bride for years or only just kind of know her from work!
Now that more people are using the Internet than have ever used the Internet before, a new study has revealed that brides-to-be, who are also people with all the agency and horror that personhood entails, are more likely to use the Internet to quickly disseminate news of their successful nuptials. Are you stunned?…
Everyone (or anyone who has ever picked up a women's magazine, watched reality TV, gone to the movies, lived on this earth, etc) knows that ladies start planning their weddings the moment they emerge from the womb. But it turns out that UK men actually used to want to spend more than their future brides on weddings…
Love everything about this, but especially the maid of honor's glasses and the lipstick. Huge version at the link!
It's not a secret that strapless bridal dresses are about as ubiquitous as that scene in movies where the officiant asks people in attendance at a wedding to speak up or forever hold their peace and someone speaks up, with comical results. But why? Strapless gowns are nearly universally unflattering, they're tough to…
