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

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

Out With The Old, In With The New: Wedding Etiquette Rules Rewritten

Brides

Jaimie Mackey 7/14/2017

So much of a wedding is about tradition, from wearing white to the vows many couples choose to exchange. There’s something so special about celebrating this milestone moment in a way it has been done for decades (if not centuries!), but there’s also something wonderful and empowering about being able to update those traditions to reflect modern times and your own values as a couple. Our experts tackle eight time-honored pieces of wedding advice that have been rewritten for modern brides and grooms—just in time for your “I do’s!”

The Old: Only engaged or married guests are invited with a “plus one.”

Traditionally, wedding etiquette dictates that in order to be invited with a date, there needed to be a ring on your finger, no matter how long you’d been together, or how soon an engagement is coming. Continue reading

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

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

Why Are The Bride’s Parents Still Paying For Most Of The Wedding?

While many aspects of weddings have become less traditional and cookie-cutter over the years, one convention stubbornly remains: In heterosexual unions, the bride’s parents are still writing the majority of the checks. Is this because the parents of females are somehow magically wealthier? Of course not. It’s because many years ago, before women could own property, they were “given away” into marriage with a dowry, which was essentially a way to pay the groom’s family for taking their daughter off their hands.
