How To Plan A Wedding In Six Weeks

The Cut

Alexis Cheung

Tips for pulling off a very brief engagement.

The wedding of:  Daniela Lazo-Cedré and Alfred Matérn, plus 50 guests.

Where: The Gramercy Park Hotel.

Why six weeks: “We didn’t want to linger and drive ourselves crazy with details. Plus, Alfred is from Sweden, and his visa was going to expire.”

What they did first: “We picked the date — January 7 — because it gave us time to file our marriage license but was late enough after the holidays that our families’ airfare wasn’t insane. We knew we didn’t want to do City Hall, so we looked for simple ceremonious venues next and landed on the Gramercy Hotel.”

Why the Gramercy Hotel: “We were just lucky. The terrace wasn’t booked, and they even upgraded us to the larger garden space. Plus, after considering catering and chair rentals, it didn’t cost as much time or money as other event spaces. The hotel takes care of a lot of details.”

Who came in handy: “We took up a lot of offers from family and friends who wanted to help. My mom constantly followed up with the hotel and scouted our photographer; my sister found my velvet pumps from Jimmy Choo; my best friend is a florist and event planner and did the arrangements. I wanted some kind of white, aromatic flower, like gardenias or jasmine, but they’re so expensive. She helped me pick a mixture of lilies and green foliage, which is actually really inexpensive. Alfred made a wedding playlist, but his friend also sang for the ceremony.”

How they invited guests: “Until two weeks before, it was a word-of-mouth wedding. We told everyone the date and updated them sporadically; then, once we secured the venue, we sent a Paperless Post.”

How she found her dress“My mom found a minimalist silk dress by Halston online. I was working late, so my sister, who is a similar size, tried it on in their shop on Greene Street. She knew it was the one but set aside other options just in case.” Continue reading

Every British Royal Wedding Tradition You Need To Know

THE PROPOSAL

The Royal Marriages Act of 1772 requires all royal descendants to seek the sovereign’s approval for marriage. But the requirements don’t stop there—the 1701 Act of Settlement prohibits royals from marrying Catholics. Royals may legally wed an atheist or someone of any faith other than Roman Catholicism. The Queen’s eldest grandchild Peter Phillips in 2008, Autumn Kelly converted from Roman Catholicism to Anglicanism so her husband would keep his place as 11th in line for the throne. Soon after Will and Kate’s engagement was announced, officials from Buckingham Palace said the Queen was “absolutely delighted” for the couple, which can only mean she approved of Will’s choice. Sources have also reported that Harry has already asked Her Majesty’s permission to wed Meghan Markle, and the Queen bestowed her blessing. There has been much speculation about Markle’s religious background, and many publications have falsely reported that Markle is Jewish because of a two-year marriage to Trevor Engelson, a Jewish producer, from 2011to 2013. While we’re unsure of Markle’s beliefs, we’re assuming the couple is well aware of the law and we’re hoping it’s a non-issue. Continue reading

10 Things We Know About Harry And Meghan’s Wedding—From An Insider

The engagement was just announced, but royal wedding fever is already here.

By DIANE CLEHANE

No one does pomp and circumstance like the Brits, and when it comes to royal weddings, they rule. I’m one of those people who set the alarm for 5am so I could get up and watch Lady Diana arrive at St. Paul’s Cathedral in a gold, horse-drawn carriage to marry Prince Charles. Ever since, I’ve made it my personal mission to know everything there is to know about the fascinating family at the center of the world’s longest running soap opera.

After two books and countless conversations with royal insiders (including Diana’s brother, Charles), I’ve gained plenty of insight on how things work within “The Firm.” Although they only just announced their engagement yesterday, plans for Harry and Meghan’s wedding are well under way. Here’s what we know so far. And for more royal engagement coverage, here are 10 Secrets the Palace Doesn’t Want Meghan Markle to Know. Continue reading

Private Wedding In Jaffrey New Hampshire

Photographer is Kate Preftakes

This wedding set-up in the beautiful hills of Jaffrey, NH is simply stunning. Not only was this private residence the perfect location for a Tidewater Sailcloth Tent, but the timeless arrangements underneath the tent are breathtaking. In case of rain, this couple opted for window sailcloth tent sides to prepare for any inclement weather. The white wash cross back chairs add a countryside and modern feel. The white cotton linens and water goblets keep it classic and simple. Just gorgeous!

A Clear Tent Wedding At Hidden Pond Resort In Kennebunkport, Maine

There’s something really spectacular about the way our clear frame tents look on the patio of the barn at Hidden Pond Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. This couple opted to extend their tent to a 40’x45’ in order to accommodate their full seated reception underneath. The family style rows of dark wood farm tables with our fruitwood chivari chairs made for a great conversational layout! Simple touches of greenery complemented the wedding white dishware and elegant glassware settings on the table so perfectly!

What You Don’t Need at Your Wedding

Legally, all you need for a wedding is a visit to the county clerk’s office, and whatever else your local government requires. (Check here.) Everything else is optional. Of course, some things are more optional than others. Most weddings these days skip the garter toss; many skip the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and some even skip the flowers. What matters is that you pick the right elements to keep making you and your guests happy. Continue reading

Exeter Events Wedding In Rollinsford Maine

There is something so classic about the blend of neutral tones with a touch of rustic. Dark farm tables accompanied by walnut crossback chairs provide a timeless look and feel and can really be used in any setting. The blush goblets along with the pink and white flower arrangement add a beautiful pop of color to tie the look together. The celery panama napkins add the perfect amount of texture and the ivory plates with Etage flatware keeps the look clean.
