About seven years ago I met a girl. It was at a college party–a “kickback” if I recall the distinction made by the host at the time. She was tall, she was blond, she had short hair. She was sitting in a cardboard box for some reason. Her name was Samantha.
Rise of the Drones
Because you almost definitely woke up this morning and thought, “Hey, I’d love to give even more undeserving attention to the 300 sandwiches couple,” the man dubbed “The Internet’s Worst Boyfriend” is now publicly soliciting ideas for proposing to his hardworking, sandwich-makin’ girlfriend.
Love and Umlauts
It’s hard enough to orchestrate a glitch-free wedding–and now, it appears brides and grooms may have to worry about camera drones plowing into their domes prior to the big day, too.
A photographer at a wedding recently attached a camera to a quadcopter in order to capture some video of a bride and groom being Read More
It’s a love story as old as time. Girl goes on an IKEA shopping spree with her daughter, who is suspended from school. Girl sees Boy. Girl stalks Boy. Girl’s daughter gives Boy her mother’s phone number, and they live happily ever after.

You know how people are always complaining that getting married in New York is too cheap these days? What with the variety of venues open year-round and the plummeting prices of caterers, diamonds, wedding planners and gown designers, it’s like you can’t even go into debt to show you care anymore!
Luckily, there’s a new way for the fellas to make a small dent in their wallets before making a much larger dent in their life savings: hire BluePrint Proposals to plan your proposal for you.
As most people who live and/or work in New York City can probably attest, doing anything in Manhattan short of breathing is prohibitively expensive (no offense meant towards those who have been priced out of our rarefied/smog-filled air). While the ritual of joining a spouse in co-habitation may seem cheaper in the long-term than living by one’s self or a Craigslist roommate who eats rocks, in the short-term, this sometimes requires things like getting married, which sometimes requires inviting people to be a part of said sacrament. Which costs, as many who have been married in New York City can tell you, way too much money.

The advent of gay weddings in New York has led to a plethora of choices for the discerning pair of fianceés or fiancés: we’ve written about Gilt City’s offer of a Del Posto wedding identical to one offered to straight couples, pre-marriage equality, and the so-called Pop-Up Chapel caters to the hip and the slackerish who want a quick celebration and a great story.
Earlier today, Rolls-Royce after Rolls-Royce crawled into an ancient church in Little Farrington, deep in the English countryside, for a wedding ceremony dubbed, alternately, “Mosstock” or “Glastonbury Meets The Ritz.” The guests had come to see Kate Moss marry Jamie Hince, the guitarist for The Kills, thus ending her two husband-less decades in the Read More
Kate Middleton: How did she do it? What happenstance of childhood moments conspired to bring about this prince-bagging commoner? Was there a specific element, a key to this alluring concoction of shiny smile and shiny hair? Perhaps the hamlet that bore her — could that be the defining reason for Kate’s magnetism, a look and Read More
