    Strange History: Wedding Cake

    Today, modern wedding cakes are often adorned with handcrafted sugar roses, icing patterns that mimics the bride's dress, and a price tag marking it as one of the most expensive items on display.

    How to Afford Your Wedding Without Ruining Your Finances

    You already know the cheapest way to get married is by simply obtaining a marriage license and tying the knot at the courthouse. However, you don’t want to go that route. You still want your marriage to be an occasion both you and your spouse will remember, surrounded by friends and family. But what happens when you can’t afford to have a grand wedding and your relatives can’t foot any of the costs? You could finance your wedding through loans, but depending on what state you’re in, the price and interest rates can be astronomically high, so it’s best to avoid the debt.

    My Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Wedding

    Wedding season is upon us. Pinterest is pinging. Registries are ringing. Seamstresses are... seaming. You see where I'm going with this. Myself, I'm helping plan my best friend in the whole wide world's wedding for June 2020, and my vow renewal for September 2020. It got me thinking about my wedding nine years ago. When we plan out weddings, we all want everything to go off perfectly, and we kill ourselves creating a perfect day. Not everything always ends up perfect, though. In the case of my wedding, only one thing actually went according to plan: I married my husband. Sit down, I'll tell you all about it.

    What to Consider When Booking a Venue

    What to Consider When Booking a Venue

    Let’s be honest—the first thing on your mind, once you get past the shock and tears of your engagement and that gorgeous ring on your finger, is “Where are we going to do this thing?!” Venue selection is certainly an exciting adventure, but don’t be fooled—the task can get pretty stressful if you’re not prepared. Selecting a venue takes more than picking the one that’s seemingly cheaper or the one that looks the prettiest in pictures online. So, before you go and put that down payment on the first one you look at, make sure you keep these other small, but important factors in mind.
