DEMETRIA: Josh and I have looked at every resort in the Caribbean and in Morocco at least 3 times each. In the age of 50 billion on-line travel sites, I don’t think we really need a travel agent. We’re having the wedding in the Dominican Republic, so really we could just stay in the DR Read More
LAURIE: There has been a wedding planning work stoppage in effect for the past few weeks, born of laziness and Thanksgiving and all of the exquisite television programming that demands our attention.
Here is what we have done so far:
ERICA: Nobody tells brides the truth. They fail to mention that “getting back to real life” after 2 weeks in some dreamy locale, reckless eating, reckless spending and all sorts of other misbehavin’ seriously, truly, madly, deeply sucks. They leave out how hard it is to wake up every day and pick up your Read More
ERICA: Italy was insanely fantastic … dreamy … delicious …decadent. In truth, we never really considered any other Honeymoon locale, and I’m pretty darn glad we were so short sighted.
We started off our trip in Positano on the Amalfi Coast. This city is just dripping with chic and charm. When you go, bring Jackie Read More
ALI: Hello blogness, I am tired and I have a nice sized headache. Feels like someone has been pulling my hair back–very tight–after Upper East Side Carrey’s up-do. I’m now on to la coiffe, the ‘do, the tresses, da hair. I’ve received references from friends, salons, and the Wedding Coordinator team peeps on the best Read More
SHALINI: I received an email informing me that I was a JUNEBUG WEDDINGS CONTEST WINNER ($500 gift certificate to Tulip, one of my favorite Seattle boutiques). This made up for my car getting towed last week and the $230 ticket/towing fee. It doesn’t stop there. Junebug has another great contest on their website this month: Read More
ERICA: One of my favorite things about our wedding weekend was seeing all of our friends and family mix, mingle and interact. It was something I didn’t think of at all ahead of time. Our hotel room was a constant buzz of activity, and with my brother’s room next door, our 2 room suite Read More
LAURIE: Gripped this evening by a wave of wedding-planning ennui, I typed into an Internet search engine the word “wedding,” followed by another word that starts with “po” and ends with an “rnography.” I was wondering whether anyone had ever thought to make a sexy movie set in this by and large unsexy scenario. (Read More
DEMETRIA: I’m in charge of our wedding ceremony and Josh has other responsibilities, like plane flights and hotels. So I was pleasantly surprised when he made a really thoughtful suggestion. I’m African American and he’s Jewish, so he came up with the idea of jumping the broom (an African American tradition) and breaking the glass Read More
DEMETRIA: “Instead of having your wedding in the Dominican Republic, you should have it in Detroit,” my sister/maid of honor wrote to me in an email. “That way more of our family can come.” FYI: I already told everyone, including my sister, that my big day would take place on a cute little island. So Read More
