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

Why Do Brides Need to Have Something Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue?

edit_076

Reader’s Digest

Claire Nowak4/18/2017

The traditional wedding rhyme goes: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe.

It describes the four (technically five) objects a bride should have with her on her wedding day for good luck, and brides have been following this custom for centuries. But why?

The mantra started as a Victorian-era rhyme that came out of the English country Lancashire. In that time, the ‘something blue’ was usually a garter, and the blue and old items protected the bride against the Evil Eye, a curse passed through a malicious glare that could make the bride infertile. ‘Something borrowed’ was preferably the undergarment of a woman who already had children. Legend says that wearing this would confuse the Evil Eye into thinking the bride was already fertile, and the curse would be thwarted. (Find out where the bouquet toss comes from.) Continue reading

It’s one of the toughest decisions for any bride and groom — and, no, we don’t mean where to seat feuding relatives at the wedding reception.

With a bevy of styles and a range of prices — a platinum band can be purchased starting at $1,000 — it’s easy to find a ring that best suits the bride’s personality. Continue reading

Wedding Gifts for Grooms: A Tradition Brides Shouldn’t Ignore

(NewsUSA) – The answer is: Yes, it’s expected.

But it’s also a chance for all you brides out there to truly show you know that not everything is about you on your wedding day. That there really is another person involved (that would be the groom) who deserves a bit of recognition, too.

We’re talking wedding presents — specifically, yours to your husband-to-be.

Tradition does, indeed, hold that both you and he exchange gifts. And while it’s true that some guys are initially shocked to learn your engagement ring doesn’t also count as a “present,” that’s no excuse for you to waver.

“Giving him something that’s just for him will make him feel really special,” advises BrideBox.com.

Here’s what you need to know now that it’s prime time for weddings: Continue reading
