So I finally got my bridal pictures back! So excited. I love them, and my photographer did amazing. However, I am having second thoughts on my hair style. I actually ended up doing my hair myself for...

Dessert: Modern or Traditional?
Lynnie, on April 23, 2019 at 11:17 AM

Ceremony Venue: Modern or Traditional?
Lynnie, on April 23, 2019 at 11:18 AM

The choice of ceremony venue has been switched up too! Less couples are getting married in a place of worship (just 25%!), and more couples are choosing to say "I do" in gorgeous gardens and unique...

Wedding Attire: Modern or Traditional?
Lynnie, on April 23, 2019 at 11:05 AM

One of the first things you picture when someone says "wedding" is a bride in white! This tradition seems to be holding strong - we surveyed last year's couples, and 82% of them said at least one of...

Planning Timeline: Modern or Traditional?
Lynnie, on April 23, 2019 at 11:05 AM

Most people would say the planning doesn't start until after the proposal - but that doesn't seem to be the case with millennials! Maybe it's because we're waiting longer to tie the knot, but two out...

Parental Permission: Modern or Traditional?
Lynnie, on April 23, 2019 at 11:05 AM

Lynnie, on April 23, 2019 at 11:05 AM

To bustle or not to bustle?? Pic included
N. Voss, on April 3, 2019 at 10:11 PM

This is my dress, I’m really struggling with the idea of putting a bustle on it. First off, I just generally don’t like the look of bustles. Second off, I’m not sure how the back of the dress will...
