Dress up for your wedding day like Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez or Blake Lively
News from Inquirer.net:

KAOLIN dress from the 2014 Zuhair Murad for Rosa Clara collection.

Filipino brides this year get to experience true red-carpet glamour, as wedding dresses made by a designer known for dressing up the likes of Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift and Blake Lively, become available in Manila.

Spanish bridal fashion house Rosa Clara presents its 2014 collaboration with Zuhair Murad, an eight-piece collection that beautifully marries Rosa Clara’s classic and timeless appeal and the Lebanese couturier’s high-glam aesthetics that have made him a favorite of Hollywood’s A-list. Most recently, Murad dressed Kate Beckinsale in the 2014 Golden Globes.

This is the fourth Rosa Clara designer collaboration. The Barcelona-based designer has worked with Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Lacroix and Jesus del Pozo.

Planning a Capital Region wedding: the dress
News from alloveralbany:

All three were candidates…

By Lauren Hittinger

Lauren and George are planning a wedding in the Capital Region, and they’re chronicling the planning process here on AOA. Last time we heard from them they were checking out catering. Next up: a wedding dress.

I never imagined that wedding dress shopping would be such a long and difficult process. All those wedding shows make it seem magical — with infinite budgets, tears of joy, and champagne.

My dress process, on the other hand, is a lesson in frustration.

In the beginning I was so excited. I had scanned Pinterest incessantly and decided I was looking for a light, romantic dress with some sort of strap, and without a train. My budget was $ 700. I could do this.

My first appointment was at Apropos in Albany. It’s a nice enough shop that primarily focuses on prom dresses, with a small selection of wedding gowns. I picked them for my f…………… continues on alloveralbany

Survey Says One-Fifth Of UK Couples Leave Their Wedding Rings At Home
News from Huffington Post:

A wedding ring symbolizes commitment, loyalty and trust — so when a spouse removes the band, what does it mean?

According to a new survey, many young married people are doing just that and for reasons that may surprise you.

As part of their annual marriage report, UK law firm Slater & Gordon surveyed 2,000 British couples and found that one-fifth of participants admitted to removing their wedding rings. According to a press release, “the most common reasons people gave for removing their rings were that they felt they got more attention from the opposite sex without a ring, that the ring was uncomfortable and that they were cross with their other half and wanted to make a point.”

Additionally, one in eight said they felt they would be judged as “boring” if they wore the ring while out. And over one-third said they removed it to get ahead at work, bel…………… continues on Huffington Post

Catherine Giudici, Sean Lowe, Bachelor Wedding BandsABC/Todd Wawrychuk

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici really took the whole storybook romance thing to the next level with their incredibly romantic wedding this past weekend, and so naturally their Neil Lane wedding bands are pretty spectacular.

The couple clearly knows that if you’re going to have an elaborate, star-studded, televised wedding, then you’ve got to have some major bling to match the over-the-top affair.

Sean chose a vintage-inspired, 3.15-carat platinum and diamond Neil Lane engagement ring the day he proposed to Catherine on the finale of The Bachelor. But when it came to choosing bands, we love that the couple were slightly unconventional and went with rose gold bands instead of platinum.

Are Wedding Gifts Necessary?
News from Reporter-Times:

Samantha in Virginia writes:

I’m friends with dozens of people in their 20s and 30s. I attended 11 weddings and their receptions in 2013, and I anticipate being invited to about the same number for 2014. I have to buy a gift each time, and I often have to give up work hours (and not get paid) while attending. I enjoy the weddings and receptions, but the large number of them are straining my tight budget. I even had to borrow some money from my parents during June 2013, when I attended six weddings and receptions. I don’t wish to decline the wedding invitations from my friends for 2014 and beyond. Do you have any advice?

Marilyn responds:

First, I think you should decline the invitations that require you to miss work unless you can use vacation hours, in which case you’ll need to decide whether you want to use them this way. Just because you enjoy the events doesn’t excuse you from being financially responsible for their cost. You’d probably also enjoy a week abroad, but if you can’t afford such a trip, you shouldn’t take it!

Second, I do think you should send a gift, regardless of whether you attend, but try exercising your creativity to keep the cost down or at least postpone it. For ex…………… continues on Reporter-Times

Prom and Wedding Showcase Gives Away Donated Dresses
News from WCJB:

HIGH SPRINGS-  A community effort is helping make prom and wedding dreams a reality. “Cinderella’s Closet” is a prom and wedding expo in High Springs that gives away dresses to ladies getting ready for their special day. On Sunday, there were about 150 prom dresses and about a dozen wedding dresses. Some of the dresses are new but most are gently used and cleaned before their put on the donation rack.

Owner of All Creations Salon Kelley Deese started the event after helping her daughter get ready for prom and seeing that some girls couldn’t afford dresses. Deese said, “It just became a big thing for me to make sure that every girl who wanted to go to prom could go. I mean, I can’t afford to buy their prom tickets and do all their hair for free, but we could help them get a dress and I think that’s a lot of the cost for prom.”

This is the fourth year for the exhibition. Anyone who has a dress they’d like to donate can drop it off at All Creations Salon located at 612 NE Santa Fe Blvd, High Springs, FL 32643.

Tips and tricks on wedding planning
News from Buffalo News:

When planning your wedding, there are things that are nice to know, like that mermaid silhouettes are all the rage or that purple is making a comeback. Then, there are things you need to know – advice so essential that any bride who’s lucky enough to hear it thinks, “I’m so glad someone told me that!” If you’re wondering whether there’s something you may have missed (or even if you’ve got everything under control), check out our indispensable planning secrets.

Guests come first: Get a grip on the approximate number of guests you’ll invite before settling on a venue. This will ensure there’s ample space for your crew. As a rule of thumb, allow for 25 to 30 square feet per guest. That may seem like a lot, but it’s not if you count the space you’ll need for the tables, bustling waiters, the band and the dance floor.

Investigate wedding blackout dates: Know ahead of time if your wedding date falls on the same day as a trade conference, charity walk or other local event that could affect traffic and hotel room availability.

Lighten your list: The easiest way to trim your wedding budget? Cut your guest list. Remember, half of your wedding expenses go to wining and dining your guests. If it’s costing you $ 100 per person, eliminating one table of 10 can save you…………… continues on Buffalo News

Kirby: My wedding gift giving has improved over time
News from The Augusta Chronicle:

An invitation to a wedding invokes more trouble than a police court summons.

William Feather

I made the mistake of mentioning (mumbling, actually) to my wife that I had a wedding to go to in a couple of months.

She sprang into action like a German shepherd chasing a hamburger Frisbee, demanding I reveal my dozen or so considerations on wedding gifts.

“I doubt they need anything. I’ll just show up,” I responded assertively … mumbling actually.

“You HAVE to give them something,” she said in a tone sharp enough to trim a hedge.

I smiled and nodded with the sincerity of an Iranian nuclear negotiator and beat it out the door.

I chose the manly retreat option because I’m not so good at wedding gifts.

The very first wedding gift I went out and bought with my own money in the mid-1970s came from the old Sam Solomon store on Washington Road. You know, where Stein-Mart is now.

It was two framed picture-paintings of African lions – a boy lion and a girl lion. They were mostly brown and tan and had those shiny, silver-colored tubular frames popular during the Gerald Ford administration.

I was pretty proud of my purchase.

Even today I think back on that carefully chosen and lovingly wrapped expression of sincere affection and wonder to myself: “How quick before it ended up in a…………… continues on The Augusta Chronicle

Tyler alumni give wedding gift to Temple Rome
News from Temple University News:

Tyler alumni Candace Jensen, TYL ’08, and Owen Schuh, TYL ’07, who included the Temple Rome Scholarship Fund as a part of their wedding registry, celebrate their marriage in San Francisco.

Paris might be hailed as the most romantic city in the world, but for Tyler School of Art alumni Candace Jensen, TYL ’08, and Owen Schuh, TYL ’07, Rome is where their love story began. They met while studying at Temple Rome in spring 2007, during a walking tour of the city arranged by the school.

“My roommate and I were debating about going on the tours at all,” Jensen said. “But I saw Owen stand up and gather a group, and frankly, I fell in love at first sight. So we did go on the tour, but I didn’t pay much attention to it.”

Owen also was a teaching assistant in one of her painting classes, and the two were able to learn more about each other. “It was great to be studying, painting, traveling and falling in love all at the same time,” Jensen says.

The pair married in September 2013 and did not forget that Temple Rome was the catalyst of their relationship. So as a part of their wedding registry, they asked for donations to the Temple Rome Scholarship Fund to help students fund trips to Italy.

Where to shop for a wedding dress?
News from alloveralbany:

Siobhan asks via Twitter:

518ers, any recommendations for where to buy a wedding dress in the Capital Region? Not for me, for a marriage-minded friend!

In a follow up, she mentioned that the first thing she did was check if there had already been an “Ask AOA” about this topic. So it sounds like she knows she can rely on you for good suggestions.

Non-redeemable bonus points for a short explanation of why the shop you’re recommending is good — service, price, selection, whatever.

Got a suggestion? Please share!

10 money-no-object Haute Couture wedding dresses
News from Telegraph.co.uk:

If we had all the money in the world, here are the Haute Couture bridal dresses we’d be snapping up

BY Olivia Bergin | 25 January 2014

Why plump for satin or chiffon when you could have a dress made of stacked, symmetrical petals jutting from the seams? At once fanciful, yet breathtaking, Raf Simons’s Dior gown is for brides who want to subvert the traditional wedding trends.

This barely-there, ethereal nightdress would sit pretty against waifish females that don’t rely on clever tailoring to show off their best assets. Granted, the feather headdress and sparkly trainers are optional.

Positively regal, this bride looks like she has been showered in the daintiest floral confetti. For ladies who have always dreamt of being that Disney princess.
