5 Last Minute Wedding-Day Curveballs and How to Handle Them Like a Boss

 Planning Tips  Comments Off on 5 Last Minute Wedding-Day Curveballs and How to Handle Them Like a Boss
Aug 312015
 

You've planned everything to perfection, so we hate to be the ones to say this but there will probably be at least one wrench in your wedding day plans. That's not to say it will be catastrophic, but we just don't want you to be that bride who breaks a nail and bursts into tears. Here, common wedding-day curveballs and how to dodge them.

1. Can my so-and-so come to the reception?
Requests to add last-minute guests are inevitable. Your aunt calls three days before the wedding and asks if her son can bring his college girlfriend "because they've been dating forever and will probably get married anyways." Before you start drilling into her the fact that you submitted the final head count a week ago, and when you invited her single, 19-year-old son without a guest, it was intentional because you actually want a 'small' wedding of under 200, take a breath. Save your energy and politely say no. A simple "I'm sorry, but we're all set with the guest list and we're looking forward to seeing your family at the wedding" will suffice.

2. The timeline is thrown.
You spent hours orchestrating the day-of timeline to ensure everything goes off without a hitch. And when the groomsmen teased you about the emailed itineraries, you brushed off their laughter, because you're confident no one will be blowing up your phone with texts asking when and where they are supposed to be. But then the impossible happens: Something does not go as planned. Whether it's the bridal party bus getting mixed up with the transportation for guests (and taking the iced champagne with it) or something as unavoidable as traffic in the city that makes you horribly late for your own cocktail reception, try not to sweat it. Everyone is looking to you to set the mood, so if you're smiling and keeping it cool, they will be too. Having an epic meltdown is a total buzz kill.

3. Someone drinks too much.
Someone is probably going to be overserved. It is a wedding, after all. The best thing you can do is make sure that someone is not you. It's going to be a long day, so consider swapping early mimosas for a light breakfast and encourage your groom to do the same. Trust us, your stomach is going to be flip flopping when it comes time to walk down the aisle, and keeping it a little empty won't be the worst idea. Plus, there's really nothing worse than drunk groomsmen escorting guests to their seats, so put together a basket of your hubby's favorite bourbon and mini mouthwashes. After everyone is in their places, the boys can have a quick celebratory toast to calm their nerves and no one will be the wiser.

4. Your "look" is ruined.
This might actually bring you to tears and we totally sympathize. When your grandma embraces you in a big hug and pulls out part of your perfectly styled chignon or your husband is so excited running behind you into the reception that he unknowingly tramples and tears the train of your $10,000 custom gown, it might push you over the edge. And while anyone who's been in that situation would empathize, you will regret making a dramatic scene. Grab a few bridesmaids and head for the nearest restroom. One can man the door to give you some privacy while the other lets you have a mini meltdown before handing you a glass of champagne and fresh coat of lip gloss.

5. You receive a surprise sentimental gift that you're supposed to wear at the wedding.
This is a tough call. When your grandma presents you with a generations-old cross that looks like something a priest would have dangling around his neck, no one is suggesting you wear it. But when your mom proudly gives you a Cathedral veil with a hand-stitched, Chantilly lace trim she was convinced you wanted but couldn't afford (truthfully, you didn't have the heart to tell her you wanted to look more modern), now you're faced with a tough decision. No one is going to judge you either way, but if we're talking about something that matches your gown anyways, being a little flexible in this moment might be worth creating and sharing a beautiful memory.

One Couple’s Nautical Wedding at the URBN Headquarters in Philadelphia’s Navy Yard

 Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Real Weddings  Comments Off on One Couple’s Nautical Wedding at the URBN Headquarters in Philadelphia’s Navy Yard
Aug 312015
 

It all started back in eighth grade, when Emily and Matt found one another in the same English and social studies classes. A few shared assignments (and a tip from Emily's best friend) led Matt to ask her to be his date to the eighth grade semiformal. Though they dated — and drifted apart — as eighth graders do, Matt and Emily reconnected as high school seniors, where dinner at the local pizza parlor kicked off their relationship yet again, and this time it stuck. Six years later, for their anniversary, Matt surprised Emily with a timeline of their relationship in pictures scattered throughout their apartment. The last photo was of Philadelphia's Swann Fountain, and Emily had no idea why it was there. A mere half-hour later, she figured it out when Matt led her to the fountain and asked her to marry him.

The couple found a spectacular and unique venue, the headquarters of URBN (home base to Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, BHLDN, and Free People) in the Philadelphia Navy Yard, hired J. Scott Walsh of Oleander Florals & Events to plan every detail, and brought in Lauren Fair Photography to capture it all. Keep reading to check it out!

Even with such a unique space, Emily wanted to keep the event's design classic, timeless, and nautically-inspired. She embodied vintage glamour with a lace and satin Priscilla of Boston gown, a cathedral-length veil, and gold glitter J.Crew flats.

"The dress was so glamorous, but had a modern feel," says Emily. "I loved how I looked in it, and I knew Matt would love it!" She carried a bouquet of white blooms, ranging from garden roses to tulips, all tied with a gold ribbon. Emily's bridesmaids carried similar bouquets, studded with anemones and tied with blue and white striped ribbons.

With bridesmaids in gold sequins and groomsmen in tuxedos, the bridal party offered a formal contrast to the Navy Yard background.

Invitations had a nautical feel, mixing a Philadelphia cityscape with classic script. Emily learned how to do calligraphy and hand-addressed all of the envelopes herself!

The Navy Yard's Chapel of Four Chaplains was the perfect location for the couple's waterfront ceremony.

The church was decorated with garlands of greenery and nautical ropes.

Emily and Matt wrote their own vows, and hers had a fun twist: "I started my vows by quoting "Everytime We Touch" by Cascada. Matt used to text me the lyrics as a way of saying he missed me, so we've always had a soft spot for the song. Our guests burst out laughing, knowing exactly where the lyrics came from!"

Escort cards were displayed on farm tables decorated with white roses and tulips. Emily spray-painted ocean animals gold, then tied them to cards where she calligraphed each guest's name and table assignment. Nautical stripes, white flowers, and warm lighting filled the warehouse space.

Gold vessels were filled with white and green flowers, and green water glasses added a pop of color to the tables. Guests wandered between Southern comfort food stations, including buttermilk fried chicken, dry aged filet with roasted sweet potatoes, and crab cake sliders.

Instead of a cake, the couple served funfetti and red velvet cupcakes, then wheeled out a late-night ice cream sundae bar!

Emily and Matt, who honeymooned in St. Lucia the Monday after their wedding, recommend both the bride and groom getting involved in the planning process. "A wedding is a huge undertaking, and working together with Matt got us both more excited and helped relieve some of the pressure," Emily says.

What to Do When Your Fiancé Doesn’t Want to Write His Own Vows (But You Do)

Writing Your Own Wedding Vows

Photo: Stewart Uy

In lieu of declaring their love with traditional vows pronounced by countless couples before, many modern twosomes are choosing to customize their proclamations instead. Coming up with personalized vows can lend warmth, wit, and even comedy to a couple's "I dos," but what if the groom has misgivings about writing his own oaths? Our etiquette experts weigh in on how to determine if writing your own vows is right for you.

Before resorting to an argument, first determine why your fiancé refuses to write personalized vows. Your fiancé may feel strongly about sticking to traditional vow verbiage, or might find the thought of writing his own vows daunting. If your fiancé prefers a classic covenant, there are many ways to modernize and individualize the customary language. However, your fiancé may simply doubt his ability to compose meaningful and moving vows when left to his own devices. Many bride and grooms encounter writer's block, but the fear of producing a subpar speech should not prevent your fiancé from attempting to come up with personalized vows. If you sense that a phobia of inadequacy lies behind your fiancé's resistance, reassure him that the end product will be meaningful and moving, no matter he chooses to say come the big day.

If writing your own vows is a matter of great significance to you, communicate your feelings to your groom. If your groom understands how important personalized vows are to your ceremony, he will likely be more amenable to the idea. Try to find a compromise between your inclinations, whether you choose to change the phrasing of traditional vows or draft a set of simple yet sentimental personalized vows.

3 Ways to Switch Up Your Wedding Reception Look Without a Wardrobe Change

 Hair & Beauty, Wedding Accessories, Wedding Dresses, Wedding Hair, Wedding Receptions  Comments Off on 3 Ways to Switch Up Your Wedding Reception Look Without a Wardrobe Change
Aug 312015
 

Not every bride has the budget for a second dress, but that doesn't mean you can't come out looking like a changed woman for your wedding reception! From putting on a party crown to letting your hair down, here are three ways to switch up your style after your walk down the aisle.

1. Glam up your makeup
If you went soft and subtle to say "I do," consider having your makeup artist stick around to take your face from sweet to va va voom. In other words, don't be afraid to experiment after your ceremony! Chances are, you had a tough time choosing between a couple different makeup looks, so this gives you the perfect opportunity to let both your elegant and edgy sides shine on your big day. We guarantee your groom will appreciate the sultry transformation.

2. Put on a party crown
Floral crowns are all the rage these days. If you weren't quite brave enough to go bold with an oversized crown at your ceremony though, why not ask your florist to create a fun "party crown" you can pop on for the reception? Check out Pinterest to find a ton of inspiration pics. And trust us, this particular accessory is a definite game-changer when it comes to your wedding style. Just wait for the compliments to start rolling in!

3. Let your hair down
No need to have the same 'do for the ceremony and the reception. If you can't make up your mind about whether to wear your hair up or down, we say come to a compromise and try both styles out. You can put your locks up in a chic chignon (or any loose updo of your choosing) for the ceremony, then take the bobby pins out and let it all fall down for the reception. Talk to your hairstylist about the best way to achieve this so that your curls look naturally flawless and the switch requires minimal effort.

Finances are at the forefront this week, but not to worry because a big promotion at work could be in your (very near) future. We talked to astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright to get the scoop on what the next seven days have in store.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're feeling super lucky right now, but don't gamble on a deal that seems too good to be true early in the week. See if you can hold off until Saturday to pay for that too-good-to-be-true honeymoon trip, as you might find an even better bargain.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You'll have a chance to show everyone just how talented you are when it comes to bringing everyone together. Round up your wedding party for dinner, and take charge so everyone is clear on what to do. It's the perfect opportunity to dish out the details on your big day and make sure your friends and family are all on the same page.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Mixing family and business isn't generally a good idea, but this week you work brilliantly blending the two. Through Thursday, try to be a good listener. Then Friday through Sunday, knock 'em dead with your awesome ideas!

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Were you really worried you might not have enough money for that amazing wedding venue? A raise or a new job opportunity pops up this week, and you'll realize you fretted for nothing. You "knew" all along it would happen. Your intuition is totally on point right now.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You're in the zone and able to get everything you want. It's a red hot, passionate time for you with Mars and Venus (coming out of Retrograde) in your sign! Put off the wedding plans for the first few days of this week and spend time turning up the heat at home.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
A secret crush may be on your mind, but don't be concerned; it's not a "sign", just a temporary distraction. Have you been working too hard on wedding plans and become overwhelmed? Even detail-loving Virgo can reach their limit. Make a to-do list, and then take a break and do something that expresses your highly creative side.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You'll find out who your real friends are this week. Good news, you've got a lot of them! Someone from long ago and far away reaches out, and you realize time has not changed a thing in a good way. They're so excited about your upcoming nuptials you may want to order an extra place setting for them at the reception.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
It's a stellar time for you career wise. Your over-the-moon wedding ideas get the green light by the end of the week when you finally get the recognition you've been waiting for at work and that includes a bonus. Brace yourself for the ride, as you'll have new responsibilities so hand over some more wedding tasks to your maid of honor.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
You're free to move about the world. Say "yes" to those honeymoon plans, especially if you've been considering a fabulous overseas trip. Things will begin to fall into place now, and you and your sweetie will easily work together to make it a dream come true.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Love and money go hand in hand in your world this week. Minor irritations around real estate or large purchases have you re-thinking your choices, but with some creative thinking and a bit of compromise with your fiancé, you can ink the deal on your new home by Friday. Speaking of that, try to have most details wrapped up before Mercury Retrograde on the 17th!

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
What seems like a rough start for your relationship at the beginning of the week becomes a huge blessing. This is a turning point and one that will put you and your fiancé on solid ground for a future together that's stronger than ever. Talk it out, hug it out and clear the air. By the weekend you'll be doing a lot more than hugging!

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Full Moon energy still working your sign has you hyper emotional and super creative right now. Stick to your ideas, and don't worry so much about what others think. If you ask, chances are they'll say something that hurts your feelings so just make the decision on your own. It's also a great time for you to start a new, healthy eating or workout plan. You'll see dramatic results.

Derek Hough Dishes on Sister Julianne’s Upcoming Wedding: ‘It’s Going to Be Amazing’

As every bride knows, getting family approval of your future husband can be one of the most daunting aspects of beingengaged. But, lucky for Julianne Hough, her new fiancé Brooks Laich already has her big brother Derek's endorsement.

"I couldn't be happier for the two of them," Derek told People of his younger sister's engagement to the Washington Capitals hockey player, while also revealing that he wasn't too surprised when Brooks popped the question. "I knew that it was happening within the first month they were dating," he said. "It was one of those things where it was instant and that smile and glow she's had hasn't dimmed ever since she met [him]. That's a special thing."

A photo posted by Julianne Hough (@juleshough) on

Not only that, but Derek said he's even been spending some quality bonding time with his future brother-in-law. "He's the best," the Dancing With the Stars pro said of Brooks. "We went surfing yesterday. We've been hanging out a lot. He's a good guy."

Derek, who said he's "stoked" about the engagement, revealed that the hockey pro went very old fashioned for the proposal, asking Derek and Julianne's dad for permission before popping the question! "My dad and he had a conversation," Derek said. "He's a very traditional guy. I think I recall after they were seeing each other for a couple of months, he actually asked her, 'So can I be your boyfriend?' And she was like 'Wait, I thought you already were.' And he said 'No, we have to do this officially.' He's a traditional guy."

A photo posted by Julianne Hough (@juleshough) on

Derek said his future brother-in-law has already tapped him to be a groomsman, but refused to give more hints about the actual nuptials, only revealing that he expects it will be "something outdoors, in nature." He added, "Sentimental. Something special to us. I have an idea where it's going to be...It's going to be amazing."

Hough said guests shouldn't expect a special wedding dance or performance, however. "We perform enough. We've been on two tours," he said. "Me and [Brooks] might do something funny. We'll have fun. When my family gets together, they dance anyways. They dance more than me and my sister."

Ask a Professional Bridesmaid: Do You Need Wedding Insurance?

Jen Glantz is a "Professional Bridesmaid" and the founder of Bridesmaid for Hire. She's the author of All My Friends Are Engaged and frequently wears old bridesmaid dresses to the grocery store and on first dates. For her Brides.com column, Jen answers a bride's burning question: Do I need wedding insurance?

Dear Jen,
I'm planning out the budget for my wedding and I'm starting to wonder if taking out wedding insurance is something I should do? I'm not talking about insurance in case I call the whole thing off — I'm not planning on doing that. I'm talking about insurance in case the venue closes down or insurance on behalf of the vendors. I'm unsure how this whole thing works. So, can you help?
Sincerely,
Wedding Insurance, Yes or No?

Dear Wedding Insurance,
I have found that if you don't plan out a budget ahead of time, your spending will quickly get out of control. It's kind of like when you go grocery shopping without a list and end up spending $100 more than you expected on items that will probably sit in your pantry or in the back of your fridge until their expiration date has them crawling to your trash can. If you don't set a firm and assertive budget, you'll start saying "yes" to everything — which may be the case with something like wedding insurance.

Sure, wedding insurance could be beneficial and something you need for your big day, but only if you need it.

Before you say "yes" to insurance, speak with your venue to see what kind of insurance they have and what it does and does not cover. Also ask your vendors to provide you with their insurance documents and review all of your contracts.

After that, you can make a decision on whether or not to factor in wedding insurance to your budget.
