Welcome to Dear Jane, Jezebel’s new advice column.
So, he popped the question! You lucky girl, you. Before you dive into wedding planning, take some advice from the experts. We asked the people who know the industry best what to avoid if you’re walking down the aisle this year.
Sorry to begin this with a shameless brag, but I’m a great flyer. I’m polite to the flight attendants, respectful of overhead bin space, drink just enough to make me sleepy, and never recline my seat. But even though I’d like to think all airline staffers would gladly give me an five-star rating (if they were allowed…
Today while staring at my bargain-basement wall calendar of the majestic Rocky Mountains, I made a thrilling realization. In the summer of 2016, for the first time in over a decade, I am not invited to a single wedding. Not one. The weddings—they are finally over.
Let’s acknowledge a simple truth: Being part of the wedding party sucks. It’s a special honor, yes, but wearing a knockoff Jessica McClintock as you walk down the aisle holding your neck in a spine-breaking position (so the pics look good) is also a special circle of hell. So, if you’re looking to avoid that, don’t…
Once one of the top stores to buy clothing inspired by field-tromping dutch milkmaids and vintage squares of knotted organic fabric for ludicrous prices, Anthropologie has fallen into some hard times. One bright spot for the Anthro brand? Bridesmaids love BHLDN, the store’s bridal spinoff.
It is absolutely no surprise that you had a lot to say about how many bridesmaids is too many bridesmaids.

"FourFiveSeconds," the Kanye West and Rihanna song that revitalized Paul McCartney's career, apparently didn't just stop with the former Beatle: Billboard reveals that another old fave got a re-up on the jammer, and that's none other than the perennially harmonizing, posi-core girl-power trio Wilson Phillips.
Comedy troupe Broken Lizard is looking to bankroll a sequel to their beloved 2001 cult movie "Super Troopers" via funding site Indiegogo. This is special, guys.
On Tuesday, we asked for your thoughts on firing someone from a bridal party—and you did not hold back. A few themes emerged among the responses, namely that if you remove someone from your wedding party you should also be prepared to remove them from your life. From a distance, that's pretty obvious but it's probably…

My brain melted on Saturday night and I can blame it all on Scarlett Johansson in the Luc Besson-directed Lucy. But I’m not the only one; the female-led film bested the box office beating out even the baby oil-covered Hercules. Hollywood, let us use this opportunity to once again remind you that ladies like movies!
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.
At $1,700 a pop, being a bridesmaid is a pricey commitment. So why do groomsmen get away with spending so little?
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.
Seems years of tacky gowns and pricey bachelorettes have finally borne fruit, and now there's a bunch of of women who frankly aren't very interested in being a bridesmaid, thank you very much. But there's still hope! You can totally say no.
Obviously this is a story out of the UK. It's the Britishiest British story ever Britted. The scene: Coddington, Nottinghamshire. We deal not with a fox wearing a feathered cap and tunic, stealing from the rich to give to the poor, but with a horse chosen to be a bridesmaid. Putting the mare in marriage.
About having 80 motherloving bridesmaids in her wedding, dance teacher Katie Dalby said: "I didn't want to exclude anyone." Listen, I totally want every kitten on Petfinder, but at some point, you gotta learn how to edit or else you're just surfing on a couch of cats all the way to Lonely Lady Island.
The better to introduce its new Galaxy S IV space phone to the public, Samsung hired a troupe of actors to perform several cheesy, poorly-written burlesques about the phone's appeal across the sundry demographics that comprise the American space phone purchasing contingent. This went on for about an hour, according to…
