Emily Maynard, Jef Holm already planning wedding?
News from Examiner.com:

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have only been engaged for a couple of months but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t thinking about their wedding. The couple met on ABC’s “The Bachelorette” and while the media has been trying to rip them apart, they seem to be looking in to the not-so-distant future. On August 29, Jef had an exchange on Twitter and mentioned his wedding to Emily—this certainly doesn’t sound like a couple in trouble.

“[Emily] says you better bring those moves to our wedding,” Jef tweeted to “Bachelorette” producer turned friend, Elan. Jef was referring to Elan’s dance moves that he showcased at a wedding that Em and Jef attended a couple of weeks ago.

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have said that they really do want to get married and that they are already thinking about their big day. Emily, of course, wants everything to be just perfect (she’s a “girl to a fault”) and that takes some planning. It does seem, however, that these two could be married before some of the other “Bachelor/ette” couples who are in line to tie the knot.

Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum will likely be getting married next year. Ben Fla…………… continues on Examiner.com

Wedding Q. and A.
News from New York Times:

Gifts Are Optional for a Second Wedding

My sister-in-law eloped a few weeks ago and has planned a reaffirmation ceremony and reception. Is a wedding gift appropriate for her second marriage?  This is our family’s first second marriage, so we are unsure how to handle this.


Lake Geneva, Wis.

Many couples who elope or have a small destination wedding host a reception for friends and family once back home. It sounds as if your sister-in-law is inviting you to such an event. Technically, a gift for a remarrying couple is optional, as traditional etiquette says that those who gave a gift for a first wedding don’t need to give gifts again. Those who are close to a remarrying bride or groom usually want to give them a present nonetheless.

If you want to celebrate her new marriage, by all means attend the ceremony and reception and send a gift.

Gift Detective Work Isn’t Worth the Price

My husband and I recently returned from our honeymoon and started going through gifts and making thank-you note lists. I was very surprised to find that I had received a card but no…………… continues on New York Times

We got thousands of pounds in debt going to weddings
News from The Sun:

WEDDINGS are a once-in-a-lifetime extravagance – unless you’re a guest.

For those invited to the ceremony, the season to tie the knot can become a never-ending succession of bills and result in a mountain of debt.

Travel, indulgent hen nights, engagement parties, rehearsals, clothes and gifts can leave those trapped on the wedding circuit penniless.

Latest stats reveal the average Brit spends a purse-breaking £7,500 attending weddings in their lifetime. For most of us the cost of sharing someone’s big day mounts up to £510 – more than the average weekly wage. Many people find themselves taking out loans, credit cards and payday loans to fund their attendance at the increasingly pricey events.

Here JENNY FRANCIS meets three women who have come to fear wedding invites as much as a final demand from a debt collector.

Jodie – £3,000

IN A cruel irony, Jodie Vincent has had to postpone her own wedding after going thousands of pounds in debt attending the big days of five of her friends in the past two years.

The insurance worker, 28, from Witham, Essex, is £3,000 in the red.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara is too busy to plan her wedding.

The 40-year-old actress has confirmed recent speculation that she and partner Nick Loeb got engaged on a recent holiday to celebrate her birthday but she insists she is in no hurry to wed as she is tied up with her commitments to ‘Modern Family’.

She told Celebuzz: ‘I haven’t started planning anything because everything has been very recent.

‘I am kind of, you know, working a lot – I just started the ‘Modern Family’ season – so I don’t know yet [when I will get married]. No plans.’

Sofia and Nick, 36, were joined by around 90 friends – including ‘Modern Family’ stars Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Sarah Hyland – for the birthday trip to the Mayan ruins in Chichen Itza, Mexico, and the brunette beauty had a wonder…………… continues on Monsters and Critics.com

The Pinterest Problem
News from Jackson Free Press:

Because I wanted to let my bridesmaids choose their own dresses, Pinterest was a great way to share options and get feedback from my friends. Elizabeth Ray Photography/Courtesy Kathleen M. Mitchell

Ahh, Pinterest. It seems tailor-made for wedding planning. It couldn’t be easier to curate nuptial images and ideas, either by searching within the site or pinning from an outside websites. It’s so easy, in fact, it has become a running joke that every female between the ages of 12 and 42 has a wedding board—even if she doesn’t have a boyfriend. The idea has spawned a slew of self-deprecating “some ecards” memes featuring single women who have their Pinterest wedding planned to every last detail (except, of course, the groom).

The website truly is a useful tool, much cleaner and simpler than printing everything off to put in a binder or book of inspirational ideas. But, much like spending too much time reading wedding blogs, it can become difficult to keep things in perspective after a while. The sheer amount of ideas—and the sheer price tag it would take to pull them off—is enough to make your head spin. And it’s so hard not to compa…………… continues on Jackson Free Press

Find your dream wedding ring

Find your dream wedding ring
News from Fair Lady:

What’s your personal style?
Couples all have their distinctive personalities and telltale charms.  Your ring can reflect what makes your love special.  When considering a personalized design for your wedding rings, consider your styles. 

Do you prefer a classical look or are you whimsical?  Do you enjoy the designs of a particular era or do you favor particular symbols associated with your families, heritage, or your own personal history together? 

Once you accumulate a few broad design ideas, a jewellery artisan will be able to discuss specific customisations that allow you to achieve your brilliant look.

Finding a Jewellery Artisan or crafter

Often, going to a commercial jewellery store means purchasing a ring style that hundreds of other couples have chosen as well. 

Some jewellery stores may allow some modification of band styles—always ask before making your final selection.

On the other hand, many artisans specialise in customised jewellery and will be willing to collaborate on a unique design for your bands.  More easily than ever, you can find a wide array of jewellery artisans online and choose one locally or even abroad. 

Many revered crafters will provide an online gallery of their work so you can decide if their artistic skills match your own ideas…………… continues on Fair Lady

Readers share their ways to ditch the wedding rings
News from Chicago Sun-Times:

Updated: August 27, 2012 3:35PM

Readers had more to say on what happens when a marriage goes south. While you can always burn your wedding pictures, what do you do with your rings? Throw them? Sell them? Give them away?

JAKE: I asked my buddy’s wife, who worked in a jewelry store, to help me pick out an engagement ring. I wanted to surprise my girlfriend of three years. The ring was simple yet elegant, I thought, and priced right. (Two months’ salary.)

I asked my wife to marry me while on vacation in San Francisco. We were on a secluded beach in Carmel when I popped the question. She was so excited she went running down the beach screaming she loved me.

On each Christmas, Valentine’s Day, birthday and anniversary, she added another diamond to the ring. With each child we had, she added another gold ring to the original ring.

After 18 years of marriage and two daughters, the simple, yet elegant, engagement ring was unrecognizable.

A New Twist on the Wedding Gown

A New Twist on the Wedding Gown
News from The Virginian-Pilot:

 28 August 2012 | 11:40 PM

Face it, we’ve all seen “Say Yes to the Dress” -the importance of a wedding gown cannot be understated! As women, we often spend countless, grueling hours of time and thousands of dollars on that perfect wedding gown knowing that one special moment will be worth it. It’s all about that split second where the entire audience is watching you walk down that isle. It’s your morment! The wedding gown has come to represent the most iconic symbol of a marriage, of new beginnings, of love. It’s what every littel girl dreams about. 

Recently, women in Poland have decided to use this iconic symbol of marriage in a different manner. On August 23, more than 100 women gathered in the streets in order to raise money for a needy child; five year old Maciek who suffers from a range of ailments including autism and epilepsy. Polish model Ilona Felicjanska is one of several women participating in the event who decided to auction off her custom made dress in order to raise more money for the cause. This event not only displays a great amount of compassion and charity, but showcases the unique way in which wedding dresses are viewed in many cultures. This time however, the iconic symbol of new beginnings and love does not apply to marriage, but rather, five year old Maciek.

Kim Kardashian has spent the last few years of her life relentlessly, pathologically obsessed with fame. Every single thing she does is calculated. So, when she withholds information, it means something. When she tweets a photo of herself in a long white dress with the cryptic message “late night fitting,” it means she would like us to speculate that she’s trying on wedding dresses. She isn’t, probably, because she hasn’t rung near enough publicity out of her courtship with Kanye West yet, but bless her for trying.

Now share your wedding wish-list with your guests
News from PINKVILLA:

It is a popular concept abroad, but Bridal Registry, a service whereby a would be-couple can share their list of desired gifts for their D-day with their guests, has got a kickstart here as well.

“Bridal Registry assists the would-be couples in conveying their wish lists to their guests. It also makes for an easy selection for the guests to gift something that will be appreciated by the couple, who is getting married,” said Dinaz Madhukar, vice president, DLF Emporio.

“The complete process has been created wherein the couples register and select the list, which they can later share with their family and friends,” added Madhukar.

The concept was introduced during the opening day of Wedding Atelier, an exhibition jointly organised by the luxury mall and wedding planner Vandana Mohan.

From floral installations by international floral designer Rob Van Helden, tips from industry experts including Mohan and Madhukar to leading couturier Rohit Bal suggesting couples about the latest trend in wedding trousseau — the three-day event, which began Friday, offers a complete range of services catering to those who want a chic, new-age wedding set-up.

Brian McFadden and fiancée Vogue Williams take a break from wedding …
News from Daily Mail:

By Kimberley Dadds


They’re due to walk down the aisle on Sunday.

But rather than immerse themselves in last minute wedding planning and nerves, Brian McFadden and fiancee Vogue Williams are doing quite the opposite.

The couple decided to take their minds off the nuptials by taking part in a special golf day today.

Not long to go now! Brian McFadden and fiancee Vogue Williams enjoy some down time on a golf course just six days before they’re due to walk down the aisle

The former Westlife star and model took part in the 13th Marie Keating Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic alongside the likes of Ronan Keating and James Nesbitt.

And they looked decidedly calm as they took time out from their hectic schedule.

While Brian, 32, was clearly taking part in the sporting day, dressed in a golf jumper, joggers and trainers, his wife-to-be appeared a lot more glam ready to support him from the sidelines.

Wedding planning…

Hi expats!

I was hoping to get some inspiration for my wedding planning. I’ll give you the basics of what we’ve decided on, then just looking for any stories, etc that some of you have from being where I am now

I am American and my fiancé is English. We are engaged (woo hoo!), still living apart (tear), and are planning a wedding in the USA for next summer. His parents won’t be able to attend as they are older and not very well. We are expecting the rest of his immediate family and a few friends to attend, in total about 15-20 guests flying over from England. I am from a very large family and will have significantly more guests from my side. About 100 total with 40 or so children. I wanted some opinions on the best ways to make his guests feel comfortable, welcome, included, not overwhelmed, etc. I also wondered about others’ experiences with receptions in the other country, e.g. before or after the wedding, what sort of event to have, etc.

Another area my fiancé and I have been struggling with is what to do about gifts. I will (hopefully) be traveling back to England with him and we don’t want a traditional registry. What have some of you all done?

Basically, if any of you would like to share…what was your wedding like? What did you like and dislike? What would you do differently if…………… continues on Expat Forum
