Packing for the Bachelorette Weekend

The bachelorette party is the ultimate Instagrammable event before the wedding day, so we won't judge you for overpacking (even if that means bringing 10 outfits you have no intention of actually wearing). It's important to have options, right?

Planning the Wedding

Here's the hard truth: There are some moments during wedding planning that will be more fun than others. After all, you can only do so many wedding cake tastings. But the sooner you get the boring stuff out of the way, you can relax and have more time to focus on planning tasks you actually enjoy.

Relaxing After a Long Day (Year) 

Planning a wedding is stressful enough even during the best of times, so there's no shame in treating yourself to some downtime with candles and wine à la Chandler Bing.

Microwedding vs. Big Wedding

While a small wedding might not be what you originally had in mind for 2021, elopements, microweddings, and minimonies are more popular than ever, and they each have their benefits.

Making Your Wedding Budget

Wedding budgets have some nerve getting in the way of our perfect weddings. What do you mean I can't afford to take over an entire town like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did?

Dealing With Wedding Stress

If being engaged in 2020 threw you for a loop, you're not alone. Plenty of other couples had to postpone or downsize their weddings—and if eating junk food on the couch makes you feel better about the whole situation, it's perfectly okay.

Endless Questions from Friends

Be prepared for a lot of questions from friends and family as soon as you get engaged. Some may be more nosy or pushy than others, so don't be shy about asking for space while you figure everything out.

Picking a Wedding Style

Having trouble choosing just one wedding style? We get it. It's easy to get carried away when you first start researching wedding ideas, so do your best to focus on what truly feels like you (even if that means skipping out on the latest wedding trends).

Inviting Kids to the Wedding

It's a no from me. Having a kids-free wedding is totally possible, as long as you make the rules clear and keep them the same for everyone—no exceptions.

Off-Limits Speech Topics

When it comes to the reception speeches, most are heartfelt, but some can quickly veer into inappropriate territory—or reveal things to your guests that you'd rather not share. Check in with your best man and maid of honor ahead of time to let them know if there are any off-limits topics.

Dodging Random Relatives

All we're saying is don't be surprised if there are relatives (or old friends) you haven't kept in touch with who suddenly expect a wedding invitation. Use these tips to set the record straight and let them know they're not invited.

Unrealistic Movie Expectations

There are so many iconic movies about weddings, but using them to set realistic expectations for your big day is a different story. When it's time to plan a wedding, take Hollywood's creative liberties with a grain of salt.
