PLANNING

10 biggest wedding planning blunders to avoid The entire process will go a heck of a lot more smoothly if you avoid these common, painful pitfalls.

This dress is gorgeous—but it’s not everything!

48

K

your entire fashion budget on the dress 1 using 5 micromanaging your vendors Don’t forget about tax, shipping, alterations, undergarments and other essentials like a veil, hair accessories, jewelry and shoes.

Once you’ve chosen a team of talented pros who “get” your bridal vision, let them do the job you’re paying them to do!

your hair and makeup late 8 starting

attached to specific flower types 2 getting

This is an expensive mistake—out-of-season blooms skyrocket in price and may not be as fresh. Think in terms of colors and shapes instead of specific flowers.

your attendants too early 6 picking

Schedule your appointments in the middle of your attendants. It’s not a big deal for a bridesmaid to switch to a less complicated hairstyle if the stylist is pressed for time.

out save-the-dates 3 sending too soon It may be tempting to tell everyone about your wedding date ASAP, but don’t send those save-the-dates until you’ve finalized the guest list.

Your bridesmaids should be your closest friends or relatives. Period. They have to be people you’d trust to be there when you need them most. You simply don’t know new friends well enough yet to be sure they’ll support you in tough situations (every bride encounters one or two at some point).

9 speeding through photos a friend instead of a professional 10 “hiring”

Squeezing photos into the first half hour of your cocktail hour will make you feel anything but at ease. If you refuse to see your groom before the ceremony, take pictures separately beforehand, so the only shots left for after the ceremony include both of you.

7

telling everyone about your wedding details

Videos let you hear your voice tremble as you say your vows and watch your friends tear up the dance floor. While photos are wonderful, they only show you half the picture.

VUE PHOTOGRAPHY

a wedding videographer 4 skipping

The more specifics you share, the more opinions you’re going to get about your choices. Plus, part of wowing your guests is surprising them. If they already know that you’re changing into a different dress for dancing or sending guests home with your grandma’s cookies, they won’t be quite as impressed on your wedding day.

Sure, your pal was the king of the mix CD back in the day, but that doesn’t mean he should be your DJ. You’re better off paying a pro to take care of things like the music and food, so your friends can enjoy the day too.

A REGISTRY

welcome to o the inspiration issue ssue Planning a fabulous fete takes time, money and tons of ideas. This issue is chock-full of instant inspiration for everything you’re dreaming up, from your gown to your honeymoon. Here are a few things I’m crazy about right now.

vera wang’s wedding wisdom My friend Vera shares her “ 10 Things Every Bride Should Have” (p. 148). She calls this your “red carpet moment”—and she’s so right!

summer! This season’s such a perfect time to wed. I’m a big fan of fancy outdoor parties (p. 236), as well as fresh lemonade (p. 242) and its spiked sister limoncello (p. 260).

The Icing on the Cake You’ll receive one 100.00 Splurge Card to shop in-store when you spend 500.00 or more on your own registry. Let the wedding days begin!*

stylish grooms Why should brides have all the fun? I’m all about tasteful touches for the groom and his best guys, like dapper pocket squares (p. 175) and boutonnieres (p. 259).

tattoo lace dresses RONEY: DANIELA STALLINGER

I like lace but always thought of it as a little, well, girly. Now, this is lace I L-O-V-E (p. 310)! It’s equal parts romantic and edgy— and beautiful on any bride.

WHAT FLOWERS DID YOU USE IN YOUR OWN WEDDING? Orchids! Whether you go sleek and modern with tropical blooms or wild and vintage with English garden flowers, orchids add that special something. @blossombranch

WHAT DID YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT THE GARDEN GLAMOUR WEDDING YOU HELPED DESIGN ON P. 280? Styling an elegant chinoiserie vase on a rustic wood table was very unexpected—the contrast made it more noticeable. I loved mixing all the different elements—wood, fabric and porcelain—at this wedding. @MindyWeiss

SARRA FLEUR ABOU-EL-HAJ, PHOTOGRAPHER

WHO IS THE ADORABLE DOG WHO STOLE THE SPOTLIGHT IN YOUR FASHION SHOOT (P. 310)? My pup, Lou, always joins me on set—she loves making new friends. She followed the model onto the set, sat on the dress begging to be petted, and we thought it would be perfect to put a headband around her neck and take a few pics.

Read more about finding the perfect red on p. 214.

SAISHA BEECHAM, MAKEUP ARTIST

IS THERE A MAGIC SHADE OF RED LIPSTICK THAT WORKS FOR EVERYONE? Yes—Ruby Woo by MAC Cosmetics, which has been around for years. It has more of a blue undertone that works well with the darkest to the most pale skin! For myself, I also absolutely love Dragon Girl by Nars—it makes my skin appear to glow. @saishabeecham

12+

months DATE:

6 to 8

______ /______ /______

______ /______ /______

Go to TheKnot.com/planner and enter your wedding date to get a free personalized to-do list. Define your wedding style and choose your color palette. Settle on the budget with help from your parents (or other contributors) and enter it at TheKnot.com/budget. Choose your wedding date and time. Finalize it after checking with key guests (parents, grandparents, attendants). Start outlining the guest list and enter it at TheKnot.com/guestlist. Create your wedding website. (Get a free customizable site at TheKnot.com/pwp.)

9 to11 months DATE:

Plan out the ceremony with your officiant and discuss any specific religious requirements (such as premarital counseling). Go wedding dress shopping and order your gown and your veil. Book your florist, photographer, videographer and band or DJ. Start a prewedding beauty regimen; schedule facials, manicures and so on. Have engagement photos taken. Start planning your honeymoon. Research and book ceremony musicians. Research hairstylists and makeup artists.

______ /______ /______

Finalize your guest list. Scout and book the ceremony and reception location(s). Choose and book an officiant. Work with hosts on an engagement party, and register for gifts. Pick your bridal party, and ask them in a creative way. Two examples: Send them a Vine video invitation or mail them ring pops and “propose.” If your venue doesn’t have an in-house caterer, interview candidates and select one. Hash out a rough price per head; then start thinking about the menu. Start shopping for your wedding dress. Research photographers and videographers in your area. Research DJs and bands for the reception. Research and interview florists. Research lighting designers and rental companies. Research stationers and choose one. Choose and order your save-the-dates.

Start researching ceremony and reception sites. You can check out thousands of venues at TheKnot.com/venues. Book any vendors you consider a priority. Book a wedding planner (if using one). Get your engagement ring appraised— and then have it insured.

Interview and book a cake baker. Choose the bridesmaid dresses and fill in your attendants, so they can order them and schedule fittings. Set aside blocks of rooms at nearby hotels for out-of-town guests. Send out your save-the-dates. Work with the hosts to start planning the rehearsal dinner. Finalize and order your invitations. Order thank-you notes now too. Reserve venues for the next-day brunch, welcome party and after-party. Interview and book a day-of coordinator. Research and purchase wedding insurance (if you’re using it). >> FROM TOP: LISA HUBBARD, ANTONIS ACHILLEOS

Finalize your flower proposal with florist. Decide on formalwear for all the men in the wedding party. Address invitations or give to calligrapher (they need several weeks). Finalize the rental list (tables, chairs). Book a room for your wedding night and your honeymoon flights and rooms. Make sure your passports are up-to-date. Schedule dance lessons (if you want them). Design and order the groom’s cake. Arrange for day-of transportation for you, the wedding party and guests (if needed).

Send out wedding invitations at the six-to-eight-week mark. Work on your ceremony vows, if you’re writing them yourselves. (Don’t put this off until the last minute!) Make a plan for the younger guests and arrange for babysitters for the reception, if necessary. Buy your wedding accessories (like hair adornments). Decide on your “something old, new, borrowed and blue.” Order or start assembling the ceremony programs. Order your guest book and any supplies for your escort card display. Confirm room blocks for the out-oftown guests. Have your first dress fitting. Schedule hair and makeup trial appointments to take place three to four weeks before the wedding.

ETIQUETTE Q& A

ask carley Our cofounder answers your questions.

Q I’m not an accessories girl—my engagement ring is the only piece of jewelry I wear. Do I have to wear a veil for my ceremony to be legit? A Of course not. Traditionally, wedding veils were donned as protection from evil spirits or used to prevent the bride and groom from seeing each other until the nuptial deal was sealed in an arranged marriage. Since then, veils have gone in and out of bridal fashion and are currently enjoying an “it” moment— but are by no means necessary.

84%

Q My mom and I put together a basket of toiletries—bobby pins, clear nail polish and tampons—for the ladies’ room at my upcoming wedding. Should we also be doing this for the men’s room? A Well, the guys may not need tampons, but this a nice idea. Stock both bathrooms with unisex items like lip balm, headache medicine, floss and mouthwash. Then, put the femalefocused items you mentioned in the ladies’ room basket and add some things just for the guys, such as travel-size colognes, gel and shoeshine cloths, into the other.

Q A

office issue

I know in theory I can invite whomever I want to my wedding, but I work for a tiny company with eight employees. I plan to include my boss and only two of my coworkers. Is that a bad idea? Not necessarily. But you’ll need to do some damage control. Take each person that you couldn’t invite aside and tell her that while you value her as a colleague (and perhaps as a friend), you had to limit the guest list and you hope she understands. Then, don’t prattle on and on about mini-taco and tequila versus sushi and sake pairings for your apps in front of those who were left off the list.

or vegan guests (out of about 300 invitees). But adding a vegan entrée to the menu will cost roughly $3 to $4 extra per head for all guests who attend. Is this normal? A Some caterers will charge more to cover their overhead costs for additional ingredients and prep. To avoid this, consider making the sides vegan. Ask about hearty options like mixed vegetable ratatouille, penne pasta primavera and roasted corn, black bean and avocado salad. These are delicious dishes all of your guests will enjoy, whether they’re omnivores or stick strictly to a vegan diet—and you’ll save up to $1,200 by avoiding that per-person up-charge. >>

ETIQUETTE Q& A

Q What’s the etiquette for hand-delivered wedding invitations? I want to bring them to my coworkers and a few friends who live near my office. Is this weird? A You can certainly hand deliver invites— it’s a personal touch that will also save you a bit on postage (and time spent in the post). But you must deliver them from your hands into theirs. Slipping the invite into your coworkers’ mail slots will look careless and cheap. This way, you’ll be able to ensure the letter doesn’t get overlooked and you can say a few words about how you hope they’ll be able to join you and your fiancé.

delivery drama

stragglers, you’ll need to make sure there’s enough food and seating for them if they do end up attending. Having a couple extra plates of leftovers is way less cringe-worthy then having invited guests show up with nowhere to sit and nothing to eat!

Q My father passed away when I was pretty young, and over the years I’ve come to consider his best friend to be something of a father figure. I was thinking of asking him to do the traditional father-daughter dance with me at my reception. Do you think this would be awkward? What if some people don’t know who he is? A No, this shouldn’t be awkward at all. This is a moment to honor a special person in your life, and it sounds like your late father’s good friend fits the bill perfectly. If you want to make sure all of your guests know who he is, you can have your DJ or band leader announce him before you begin.

father figure

who’s invited to the bridal shower?

Q I want to ask my niece to be a flower girl. Should I offer to pay for the dress or should that be my sister’s responsibility? A If you’re in a financial position to easily cover the flower girl attire, and your sister is not, it would be very nice to offer it as a gift. But just as your bridesmaids will pay for their dresses, the parents of the child attendants generally pay for their clothes. The important thing is to bring this up at the same time you ask the parents’ permission for the wee ones to appear in the wedding. That way, there will be no awkward conversation later.

flower girl fees

how should we tip wedding vendors? K

Q My fiancé and I are in a deep disagreement. He says e-invites are a great way to save some money on our invitations; I say they’re tacky. Who’s in the right here? A You both are—sort of. Paperless invites are a perfectly fine way to save money on the pre- and postwedding events, like a casual rehearsal dinner, after-party or brunch. There are plenty of sites that offer versions customized with your wedding style to showcase your personality as a couple. But traditional paper invites are still the way to go for the actual wedding day. In today’s technologybased world, where your guests receive hundreds of emails every day, a physical invite has become that much more special. That doesn’t mean you have to go over-thetop with an invite that sings and shoots confetti either. Simple card stock and laser printing will do the trick.

Q My wedding is a few weeks away and I haven’t heard from eight guests. Can I safely assume they’re not coming, or should I call them to confirm? A You will want to give your caterer a firm head count to avoid paying for plates that won’t be eaten, so yes, give your guests who haven’t sent in their response cards a ring. Who knows? Maybe they thought they sent the card in, but didn’t. Maybe it got lost in the mail. If you can’t reach a couple of

HOROSCOPES

taurus APR. 20 –MAY 20 Haven’t found the dress yet? Don’t fret! Hit the gym to relax and wait for the April 28 Taurus eclipse–it’s sending tons of style inspiration your way, so you can finally pin down the perfect look. In June beware of hidden costs! Check carefully before signing any vendor contracts.

cancer JUNE 21–JULY 22 Let’s hear it for the boys! In April, the Sun in your house of men favors quality time with your dad, bro and fiancé. The June 27 Cancer new moon will make you feel glam, inspiring unique touches for your wedding day style. Use July to pull the whole look together.

virgo AUG. 23–SEPT. 22 Ooh la la! As the Sun shimmies through your intimate eighth house in April, pick out some sexy, nuptial-night lingerie. Perfectionism alert: In June you may second-guess your choices, driving everyone crazy. Lighten up and celebrate with friends in July.

aries MAR. 21–APR. 19 You’ll start spring wondering “Whose wedding is this anyway?!” Stand firm in your vision and compromise cautiously. De-stress with a getaway à deux in May and prep for June, which could bring friction with a bridesmaid; smooth tensions at the June 27 Cancer new moon.

gemini MAY 21–JUNE 20 Heavy-duty planning in April could lead to burnout in May; enlist your bridesmaids to take some tasks off your plate. Come June, book hair and makeup trials, but with Mercury in retrograde don’t rush your decisions. Wait until after July 1 to settle on a look.

leo JULY 23–AUG. 22 With the Sun in your travel sector, April’s your chance to book the exotic honeymoon of your dreams. Then get down to business in May—it’s all about budgets and schedules. On July 16, lucky Jupiter enters Leo and a new chapter with fresh starts awaits!

K

libra SEPT. 23–OCT. 22 You’ve caught the “disease to please!” But the April 15 Libra lunar eclipse is the perfect time to speak up. You’re not a Bridezilla for (politely!) asserting your preferences. Take a rejuvenating getaway in June, and you’ll be back in high spirits for planning by July.

sagittarius NOV. 22–DEC. 21 April’s bringing you a burst of creative energy: Use it to finalize colors and décor. In May, hike or bike in the great outdoors to clear your head (and get in sexy dress shape!). July is all about the Benjamins. Sign up for a joint savings account and get your funds in order.

aquarius JAN. 20 –FEB. 18 You’ll get bit with the DIY bug in April (think: hand-drawn save-the-dates and homemade centerpieces). When family bonding ensues in May, distribute crafty roles to your clan. As summer sets in, don that planner chapeau and hunt for juicy deals or discounts.

scorpio OCT. 23–NOV. 21 The next few months you’ll be laserfocused—ideal for tackling nitty-gritty tasks like seating charts and dress alterations. When June finds you sweating the small stuff, it’s time for a reality check! Focus on what really counts and start planning the ceremony or writing your vows.

capricorn DEC. 22–JAN. 19 Get ready for some mama drama this spring. Practice being playful yet direct to lighten the mood with Mom or your future mother-in-law. As the Sun tours your sustainable sixth house in June, consider locally sourced food and flowers, or favors with a regional twist.

pisces FEB. 19 –MAR 20 Costs are racking up, but luckily April is a great time to tame your budget. (Do you really need solid gold escort cards!?) Put the wedding party to work in May and June to help with toasts and invitations. Then get ready to sparkle in July as you rustle up wedding bling like a tiara and pretty heirloom pieces.

total takeover Why stop at just a hotel ballroom for the evening when you can book the entire property for the whole weekend? Wedding weekends are a fun and unforgettable alternative to a traditional one-day celebration. Kick things up a notch by planning the ultimate takeover and reserving the entire hotel just for your guests. These four hot spots are the ideal place to settle in.

RANCHO SANTE FE, CA: RANCHO VALENCIA This Southern California resort overlooks acres of gardens and olive groves. Forty-nine Mediterranean-inspired guest casitas (hello, private patios!) can be reserved. Prepare for some serious pampering—guests are awakened with freshsqueezed orange juice. RanchoValencia.com

SAVANNAH, GA: THE GASTONIAN Reserve this historic house that has 17 rooms, plus exclusive usage of the parlor and formal dining room. Best of all, a full breakfast is complimentary, along with a selection of early evening wine and hors d’oeuvres followed by late-night cordials—talk about Southern hospitality. Gastonian.com

party all night long Why should the #bestdayever have to end after the last dance? After-parties are more popular than ever before and these celebration extensions are popping up on invitations everywhere. It’s a perfect fix for weddings with a mixed guest list that includes young families and grandparents who like to be in bed early. Change up the vibe by moving the bash to a different room or venue. If you hosted guests to a formal white wedding, treat them to sliders and milkshakes in a moody blues lounge. To pull off a smooth transition, plan to cut the cake and toss the bouquet by 10 p.m. That will signal to older guests that it’s okay to leave and give your friends a chance to really cut loose. And don’t forget: If you change venues, arrange to transport guests safely back to the hotel.

NEWPORT, RI: THE VANDERBILT GRACE This boutique hotel is just minutes from the bustling waterfront and majestic Cliff Walk of Newport, Rhode Island. Take over the entire 33-room mansion, giving your guests exclusive use of the pools, spa, gym, rooftop and two on-property restaurants. GraceHotels.com/vanderbilt

two-sided place card K Vanity Fair editor in chief Graydon Carter knows a thing or two about throwing an epic bash (the magazine’s Oscar party is one of the most sought-after tickets during awards season).

The brilliant idea keeps partygoers from walking around the tables and serves as a quick introduction for tablemates. Now you can avoid circling guests too.

lose inches instantly: shapewear edition Look your best in your dress by donning these The Knot–approved shapewear pieces under your gown.

Most brides-to-be will find themselves short on time and money during the planning process, making getting to the gym (and paying for it) tough. Many are turning to equipment-free bridal boot camp workouts, which maximize results in a short period of time. Adam Rosante founded The People’s Bootcamp in New York 93 percent of City—popular among brides, busy executives and moms. His workout Knotties want (sample moves below) combines high-intensity intervals with little to get in great rest, and uses only body weight as resistance. “This is a total body routine shape before that’ll torch fat and tone your muscles,” Rosante says. “All you need their wedding is a few feet of space and minutes of time.”

diet trends

drop weight instantly

the slim secrets you need to know Crash dieting before your wedding day could actually backfire. “You may lose weight initially, but then your body goes into ‘starvation mode’ and your metabolism slows,” says registered dietician Christian Henderson, who helps New York City brides with her Bride-to-Be package ($1,075 for a 16-week program). Instead, she suggests making these four small changes to your diet:

lose 5 pounds in 1 month without trying: vending machine edition Dump junk food for 30 days and you’ll seriously save on calories.

fill up on veggies “Vegetables are high in water and fiber, so they fill you up—not to mention keep you regular, promote overall good health, increase vitality and make your skin look great,” Henderson says.

Don’t eat just because your coworker brought in cupcakes or it’s noon. Eat when you’re hungry. They’re calorie dense but won’t kill your hunger like whole foods rich in healthy fats, like avocados.

270 calories

overlook the oreos 6 cookies

upgrade your carbs Choose carbs that are full of fiber and, as a result, ultra-satisfying. “Good choices are starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes, winter squash and whole grains like quinoa and millet,” Henderson says. And skip the white pasta and bread.

3 GETAWAYS THAT GIVE BACK 126

K

Your honeymoon is probably going to be the best trip you’ve ever taken, but that doesn’t mean it has to be entirely self-indulgent. These choices add charity to the itinerary (along with luxury and romance, of course!).

1

all-inclusive fun & sun

Swim-up bars. Delish food. Instagramworthy beaches. While the all-inclusive icon Sandals is known for these, it also has the Reading Road Trip, where couples spend time tutoring in a local school. But even if you don’t volunteer, you’ll still be supporting the Sandals Foundation. So when you’re enjoying yummy tropical drinks at the LaSource Grenada Resort & Spa, schools across the Caribbean are getting new computers. And while you’re golfing at Jamaica’s Grande Riviera resort (greens fees included!), you’ll be helping the Sandals Foundation golf academy provide young local golfers with scholarships (LaSource Grenada from $258 per person; Grande Riviera from $221 per person, Sandals.com).

2

urban-chic luxury

Your first thought probably isn’t that a week at the Ritz is the ultimate in selflessness. Famous for its five-star service (and pillow menu!), The Ritz-Carlton also has Give Back Getaways, where you can donate a half or full day of your time doing charity work, from feeding endangered iguanas on Grand Cayman to working in a floating sea turtle hospital in the coastal city of Sanya, China. We’re partial to giving back in NYC—first, explore the city and experience some seriously delicious dining (you have to try the signature oysters at the hotel’s Auden Bistro & Bar). Then spend a few hours at the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, serving lunch to homeless families (rooms with a Central Park view from $1,095, Ritz-Carlton.com).

3

south african safari

If you crave adventure and luxury, you’ll love the customized options from Hands Up Holidays. Examples include: a Costa Rica ecotourism trip, where you’ll see sloths and monkeys in the rainforest before helping with reforestation efforts, or a honeymoon in New Zealand, where you’ll ride in a helicopter and hand-feed seabird chicks a “sardine smoothie” (awww!). Our favorite is the South African safari: Stay at the Lion Sands River Lodge in one of 20 luxe thatch-roofed suites with views of Kruger National Park and rhinos as neighbors you’ll “meet” during scenic drives. Then lend a hand at a community garden project ($17,600 per couple for an 8-day trip to Lion Sands, excluding flights, HandsUpHolidays.com). >>

The A-list honeymoon we’re loving now ANDY SAMBERG AND JOANNA NEWSOM: THE MALDIVES At the Golden Globes this past January, the former Saturday Night Live star and his songbird sweetheart were positively glowing, and it wasn’t only because Samberg took home a trophy for his role in television cop-comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The talented couple had just returned the night before from their Maldives honeymoon (a super-romantic trip that made our very own list for 2014’s top 50 honeymoon hot spots on p. 480). Newlywed Newsom raved on the red carpet about swimming in the ocean and viewing dolphin pods, while her award-winning beau simply called the trip “awesome.”

BEHIND THE SCENES Jesse Tyler Ferguson (right) and his husband, Justin Mikita, sporting their own designs, available at TheTieBar.com.

7 things I loved about my wedding Recently on Modern Family, Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s character, Mitchell, had some hilarious hiccups while wedding planning with fiancé Cam. Even though it’s been almost a year (happy anniversary!) since he married lawyer Justin Mikita in real life, the newlywed is still obsessed with certain planning details and special moments from his nuptials. Here he shares seven of his (and our) favorites.

1 K

choosing our rings

Picking out our wedding rings was something we were really stressed about, but once we were actually there with the jeweler, looking in the mirror with the bands on, it was very special. And when we finally purchased the wedding rings, that was an insane moment—like, “We just bought our wedding rings!”

2 3 4 5

hiring a wedding planner

Each decision is like a Pandora’s box. Whatever it is—a fork on the table or the structure of the ceremony—there’s always a billion more questions about that one item. We had to use a wedding planner since we are so busy, so fortunately we had someone else micromanaging everything. That said, while we both err on the side of wanting it to be perfect, we weren’t crazy groomzillas. We hadn’t had ideas about our wedding since we were kids, so we discovered as we went along.

“It’s your day—it shouldn’t be dictated by anyone else.”

178

our officiant

The highlight of the day was having playwright Tony Kushner marry us. He wrote an amazing ceremony—it should be published. It was truly an honor to have him there.

6 7

eating before the reception

the party

After our ceremony, Justin and I had a private dinner while our guests went to cocktail hour. It gave us a chance to absorb what just happened and eat. Everyone I know who has gotten married said that they never ate because they were greeting guests. We stopped by the tables as our guests dined. It was perfect.

We started with dancing before dinner. We wanted to set the tone that this would be a wild party. We paraded all our guests down the streets of New York City’s SoHo from the venue to the Crosby Street Hotel, where we had an after-party that lasted until 2 a.m.

watching it all come together

the bow ties

Seeing our invitations for the first time was exciting. Then hearing all the support from our family and friends was gratifying. We just tried to absorb every moment as it came. Planning was stressful at times, but overall, very special. MIKE ROSENTHAL

We made special ones as a gift to our guests from our foundation to support marriage quality, Tie The Knot (TieTheKnot.org). Band of Outsiders designed our own bow ties, as well as our tuxes—navy for me and gray for Justin.

“I knew the minute I saw this Alix & Kelly dress that it was perfect,” recalls Sarah Nixon, from Phoenix. “I fell in love with the pool skirt and luxurious cream silk,” she says of her graceful sheath gown, inspired by photographer Irving Penn. Sarah paired the dress with art deco-style chandelier earrings and a feather hairpiece to add a vintage vibe. “I received some incredible style advice: ‘Resist overdoing it.’ I felt beautiful all night since I was wearing a dress that’s true to my everyday style.” >>

When Brooke Myatt of Brooklyn, New York, couldn’t find the gown of her dreams for her wedding to Shaun, she enlisted the help of her aunt—a talented seamstress—to make one. She came across a photo of a long-sleeved lace dress that became the basis of her inspiration. “Through a few very basic sketches, and trial and error, we created wonder with needle and thread,” she recalls of her one-of-a-kind dress. “The moments I had with my mom, aunt and grandma during the design process were indescribable.” >>

Chicago resident Erica Diermeier chose an ethereal A-line tulle and chiffon gown with a sweetheart neckline by Christos for her dreamy beachside day. “My favorite part of the dress is the handmade flower appliqués accented with Swarovski crystals that flowed throughout the skirt and gathered towards the hemline,” she says. “It’s so delicate and beautiful.” Wanting to look natural, she wore her hair down in loose romantic curls with two sidepieces pulled back in a waterfall twist and clipped with a starfish hairpin.

BEHIND THE SCENES

15 minutes with

jose villa

When wedding photographers get hitched, they hire Jose Villa to shoot the festivities. Here’s what he has to say about his craft—and his own nuptials. BY REBECCA CRUMLEY

What should couples learn from their first meeting with you (or another photographer)? They should know my style by this point—I see the meeting as a chance for them to get to know me. I actually meet my clients at my home because it allows me to share whom I am. You want to develop a rapport with your photographer and be comfortable.

You always seem to capture the perfect moment. How do you do it? If the shot is too staged, it’s tough to get genuine expressions. I like to have the couple kiss while walking. It’s all about the movement.

What’s your favorite wedding shot to take? Portraits of the bride and groom at sunset. The timing is key. It can’t be left up to the planner; it’s up to the light.

You beautifully document the décor details. How?

K

The photographer should coordinate with the planner well in advance. For instance, place settings need to be set up early enough that the photographer can carefully shoot them before the guests arrive.

188

Are there any industry trends you’re loving right now? The last 15 weddings I’ve shot have been the same colors—white, blush and other soft tones. These palettes are very timeless.

Can any photographer shoot with film? You need someone who can manage any potentially dark scenarios, and be aware of how extra lighting may be needed—particularly indoors. If you’re getting married in a ballroom, for example, be sure you see samples of a similar wedding from the photographer. HEADSHOT: ELIZABETH MESSINA; OTHERS: JOSE VILLA

On your own wedding day, how crazy were you about your shot list? I totally left it up to Elizabeth [Messina]. I just trusted her.

And your husband is a talented wedding filmmaker [Joel Serrato Films]. What’s it like working together? I like it—I really do. Without communicating, he knows if I need something and vice versa. It’s almost like a dance.

why are bouquets so expensive? Is your flower budget freaking you out? Hang on to your hydrangeas! Here’s why that bunch is so pricey. PHOTOGRAPH BY TREVOR DIXON BOUQUET BY PEARTREE FLOWERS

K

1

amount of flowers

You may not realize it, but a bridal bouquet has a boatload more flowers than your average grocery store arrangement. Some of the flowers are hidden and just meant to fill out the shape. “Even looser feeling ones are much denser than a bouquet you’d pick up at the store,” says Liza Lubell, a floral designer based in Brooklyn, New York.

2

labor and materials

You’re paying an expert for her experience—and possibly several hours of her time. “Bridal bouquets are designed specifically for each client, and each flower is thoughtfully selected to go with the overall look of the bouquet,” Lubell says. Fancy ribbons, like the one securing this bouquet, can cost up to $60 per yard.

3

types of blooms

The peonies, antique hydrangeas and majolica roses in this dreamy arrangement are more exquisite than other flowers, and come with a higher price tag to match. The peonies and hydrangeas cost about $13 per flower, and the roses are around $6 a pop. That’s why the ticket price for this masterpiece comes in at $275 .

THE BIG QUESTION

celebrate the next morning PROS If you’re hosting a destination wedding or most of your guests are traveling to attend the festivities, a brunch is a perfect place for good-byes. (It’s unlikely you’ll be able to properly thank your grandmother for coming while showing off your skills in a bridal party dance-off.) “Brunch also tends to be more low-key, which may fit a certain couple’s personality better than an after-party,” says wedding planner and TV personality David Tutera. CONS If you plan a brunch instead of an after-party, you may be surprisingly sad when your reception goes by in what feels like the blink of an eye. Plus, since brunch is a separate event, it may require more planning (particularly if your venue offers an afterparty that’s just an extension of the reception).

after-party K

revel into the wee hours PROS “Your wedding goes fast, and an after-party extends your time to let loose with your friends—after greataunt Ada has left. Young groups generally prefer to party late rather than get up early,” says celebrity wedding planner Lindsay Landman. An after-party is also a good option if you have lots of people from out of town who plan on leaving first thing in the morning, or if you’re having a local wedding and don’t think people will attend another event the next day. CONS If your venue won’t allow you to stay after-hours, you’ll have to pay to transport people to another establishment—and then pay for drinks once they’re there. “Pancakes, eggs, bacon, juice and coffee can be more cost-effective,” says Annie Lee, creator of Learn to Speak Wedding: Flashcards for Beginners.

dress up your ’do Wedding hair has never been hotter. How to style your hair is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make for your wedding, and this season’s top trends (long veils and second dresses) are making it more important than ever. Cathedral veils mean there’s even more focus on your ’do. And when it’s time to take off the veil and change into your short or slinky second dress, you’ll need something equally wow-worthy to embellish your hair.

Warning! Don’t try bold brows if you have a small face.

TOOLS tweezers Lily Collins is the new “it” girl for big brows.

eyebrow pencil or powder stiff brow brush spoolie brush brow gel

1

GROOM YOUR BROWS With your tweezers, pluck the stray hairs you can see at a regular distance (don’t lean in too close or use a magnifying mirror, which can tempt you to over-pluck).

2

SEARCH FOR YOUR SHADE Choose the right color pencil or powder to match your eyebrows. Typically, if you have lighter colored brows, look for a shade darker than your natural hair; if you have dark hair, find a shade that’s slightly lighter. While powder can look more natural, pencil is better if you have less hair because powder adheres to the hair. PENCIL (OR POWDER) IN BROWS Using the pencil or powder, brush to create short strokes that mimic the appearance of hair. Start from the top inner corner of your brows and move down and outward. Blend with a spoolie, brushing the color into your brows after every few strokes.

SET THE LOOK Finish off with a brow gel. If you have light hair, a tinted gel will kick the color up a notch for an extra-bold look. If your hair is already dark, you can use a clear gel, which will act as a topcoat for your brows.

Eyebrow genius Anastasia Soare, founder of Anastasia Beverly Hills, tells us how to create the hottest new trend— full brows that look natural (not scary!).

red ahead Loving red-hot lips? Here’s how to find the right shade for your skin tone.

fair COOL UNDERTONES Go for a cherry red hue. This color is great if you “want a red that’s saturated without being overpowering,” says celebrity makeup artist Saisha Beecham (she’s Vanessa Hudgens’s go-to beauty guru). Super Lustrous lipstick in Rich Girl Red, $7, Revlon, Ulta.com WARM UNDERTONES A fiery shade of red with orange and coral undertones will bring out your skin’s subtle golden coloring. Lipstick in Lady Danger, $16, MACCosmetics.com

medium COOL UNDERTONES You can go a bit darker with your red tones, but you’ll still want a shade with a hint of blue. This one has “a satin finish and gives your lips a bit of moisture,” says Beecham. Monica Voluptuous lipstick in Attractive Monica, $33, Dolce & Gabbana, Sephora.com

WARM UNDERTONES Sun-kissed skin looks amazing in a classic red. The color gives off just the right amount of warmth and coolness. Pure Color Envy Sculpting lipstick in Vengeful Red, $30, EsteeLauder.com

dark COOL UNDERTONES Instead of traditional fire-engine red, a bright berry shade is best for you. Beecham loves this tube: It has major staying power and “leaves a slight stain on the lips.” Lip Perfection lipstick in Hot, $6, CoverGirl, Target.com

WARM UNDERTONES A darker, wine-like red adds even more richness and warmth. Rouge Artist Intense in M8 Matte Bright Red, $20, MakeUpForEver.com

your VIP list Invite the coworkers you’ve been wanting to get to know better, or break the ice with those cool neighbors down the street—drinks and appetizers never last more than a few hours, so there’s no pressure to make it beyond small talk. party poopers Leave off the boss or uptight neighbors—you deserve a night to get a little sloppy, and they don’t need to see that. And speaking of sloppy, go ahead and leave out that pal who gets bar-brawl rowdy after throwing back one too many.

signature drink Shots of tequila, anyone? Or maybe margaritas on the rocks? Unpack that party-ready blender and show off your best drink-slinging skills. Don’t forget the paper umbrellas. the grub Bite-size munchies are a happyhour necessity. Think baby crab cakes, taquitos, guac and chips or spicy mixed nuts. Drag your butt to the warehouse club to stock up on provisions—the frozen aisle has some pretty impressive appetizers, so make it easy on yourself (because you won’t feel like cooking after work on Friday!). party trick Umm, beer pong. ‘Nuff said!

petiquette primer Sure, you love your dog or cat, but make sure your pals don’t have a panic attack every time they ring your doorbell. By Jennifer Benjamin prep your guests Picture this situation: Your friend walks up to your front door, lifts her finger to ring the doorbell, and before she can even press the button, your 200-pound mastiff barrels his way down the hall straight toward her. For a split second, she thinks that he actually could come right through the door and knock her off her feet. While Fido’s greeting is perfectly normal to you, your guests will be taken off guard, so you’ll need to warn them ahead of time about your pet’s personality. Find out in advance if your friends are comfortable with an animal that loves to lick (er, kiss) or tends to bark at new people.

FURBABY 411

create a time-out zone If your dog or cat is even the tiniest bit aggressive, fearful of strangers, or requires a lot of attention, don’t take any chances— put them in another room. You might feel sad that they’re missing out, but you’ll feel a whole lot worse if Frisky bites or scratches one of your guests. And if your friends’ kids are in tow? Fuhgeddaboudit. To get your cat or dog used to their new “quiet time” area, confine them in there for an hour here and there in the days leading up to your party or event. Provide toys and water, and play with them a bit so it doesn’t seem like a punishment. Hey, your pet might even prefer this new spot.

sidetrack your pet A great bottle of pinot noir and stimulating conversation will keep your guests entertained, but it’s not so simple when it comes to pets. Your dog or cat has its own methods of entertainment and is most likely thinking, “Ooooh, some shiny patent leather shoes for me to chew on!” or, “Sniff, sniff—is that cheese?” or, “That lady looks really nice—I’m going to go lie my head in her crotch and stick my tail up her nose.” That’s why you’ve got to distract them with toys that are more exciting than the new people. For dogs, hold off on giving them dinner; instead, you can stuff chew toys like the Kong or Busy Buddy or even a

“Wo f! I want a yum y rawhide treat now! But your friend’s new leather clutch lo ks tasty to ...”

hollowed-out bone with some frozen kibble, peanut butter or soft food. They’ll spend most of the night trying to dig their yummy treats out of their toys instead of harassing your guests. As for cats, they’re usually not quite as social and may actually prefer to be away from all of the action. Take her into the bedroom, give her some catnip (if she’s into that), bring out toys that she only gets when guests are there, and turn on the TV.

be the enforcer Yeah, it’s real cute when your friend feeds your dog pieces of his filet mignon from the table. But it’s not so cute when, following the party, your pup goes all Oliver Twist on you, begging for food every time you sit down. Or your other friend might think it’s great to wrestle with your dog—then, two days later, while you’re doing a yoga DVD, Banjo decides it would be fun to jump on you and knock you over. See, the “just this one time” concept is lost on your pooch. Once you start feeding them from the table or letting them jump THIS PAGE, LEFT TO RIGHT: JOHN LUND/PHOTOGRAPHER’S CHOICE/GETTY IMAGES; OPPOSITE: THAYER ALLYSON GOWDY/THE IMAGE BANK/GETTY IMAGES

up, they think, “Aweeeeesome!” and it’ll take additional training to break the habit and get them back on track. Still, you don’t want to alienate friends who are just trying to have fun. And you do want your pet to have some fun too. So give your guests specific things to do with your pet that won’t trigger any future bad behaviors. For example, hint that the filet mignon stays on the table, but then hand guests some treats and have them practice a trick or two with your pet, whether it’s shake, roll over or turn in place (good doggie!).

cleaning house de-fuzz your couch No matter how much your friends may enjoy coming over, if they have serious allergic reactions to dogs or cats, you’ll have to suck it up and meet at their place. For those who get itchy-eyed but are willing to brave it, remind them to bring allergy meds so they’re armed with antihistamine before they set foot through the front door. Vacuum all your furniture and floors, which trap hair and dander.

mind the throne

You don’t want to deal with taking your dog out during a dinner party, nor do you want guests gagging in the bathroom from the smell of your litter box. If you have a dog, walk her before the gettogether. If you have a cat, clean out the litter box right before guests come, or consider using the self-cleaning ScoopFree litter box (from $120, BedBathandBeyond.com) that works by sensor.

If you’re dreaming of a gorgeous outdoor wedding, summer is typically the ideal season to say “I do”—but there’s a lot more than weather to love about this time of year. Here’s what you need to know about hosting a summer soiree. BY KRISTIN KOCH

how to have a summer wedding

4 reasons to celebrate in summer

1 warm weather

Need we say more? While spring and fall can bring unpredictable temperatures, rain or even snow, summer is known for sunny blue skies and warm temperatures that often last until the evening, making it the perfect time of year for outdoor nuptials.

2 more free time

“Workloads in many industries tend to lighten up and some people have summer Fridays, which allow for a more open schedule to both plan and attend weddings,” says Annie Lee, principal planner and owner of Daughter of Design in New York City. “Also for couples who are in school, it’s great to take advantage of their summer break for lastminute wedding errands and equally ideal for honeymoons afterwards.”

3 abundance of available blooms 4 built-in décor

More flower varieties are in bloom on the summer solstice than on any other day of the year. That means you will have a greater selection of in-season florals, making for more dynamic, colorful and affordable arrangements.

K

Mother Nature will save you on décor in the summer months. The warm weather allows couples in many parts of the country to take advantage of gorgeous natural backdrops, ranging from waterfront locales to lush gardens and picturesque mountaintops. >>

summer style inspiration Translate your nuptial date into your wedding style with a vibe suited to the season.

keep it casual “People are really appreciating laid-back outdoor weddings,” says Alison Hotchkiss of Alison Events, an event design firm with locations in New York City and San Francisco. “Picnic blankets with cute throw pillows, lawn games, wood swings, a dance floor under the stars and stations instead of plated dinners are a great way to mix things up,” she recommends. Lee likes the idea of embracing a summertime standby for your cocktail hour—picnics. “Have a picnic-style cocktail hour and place blankets and baskets for guests to sit and enjoy,” Lee suggests.

seasonal accents

Modern stripes, colored glassware, bright bouquets and fun-to-eat fortune cookies are all playful nods to the season. >>

think beyond the standard Worried about wilting blooms? “Try bowls of fruit instead of floral arrangements,” Hotchkiss says. “Bottles of lemonade or specialty cocktails preset on the tables add nice color.” And switch up your seating arrangement too. “Consider a combination of couches and chairs for ceremony seating,” suggests Hotchkiss.

“People are really appreciating the laid-back outdoor wedding— think lawn games and a dance floor under the stars.” infuse some seasonal nostalgia “If you spent your summers going to camp, it might be fun to do a cocktail hour resembling some of those activities,” Lee suggests. “Or if summer coincides with the Olympics, bring in some games or a design inspired by this event. Imagine ribbon dancing and synchronized swimming as part of your entertainment!” Another summer favorite Lee recommends for outdoor fetes: “Dress up a tree swing with overgrown garlands, vines and blooms.”

244

K

consider double-duty transportation “Park a beautiful vintage bicycle with its basket overflowing with summer flowers for a great ceremony flower installation piece,” Lee says. “Or rent a classic convertible car and use it as a display table and additional seating. The tail, of course, needs to have a ‘just married’ sign!”

create a carnival “For your cocktail hour, recreate a summer carnival with fun décor, possibly some games and cotton candy. Extra points if you can get a Ferris wheel,” Lee says.

layer on lightness “Watercolor is very in and very appropriate for summer weddings,” Lee notes. Carry the theme from your invitations to your table design. “Create menus, table numbers or even custom cuffs for vases. Use a thin layer of gauze as an overlay to create a soft, airy feel on the tables, and serve sides family-style in wooden salad bowls to add to the summer outdoor dining experience.” If you’re planning to host guests in the sun, offer some shade with lightweight parasols in soft hues.

the must-have ingredients Tap into the season to create a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind summer affair.

a colorful palette For an outdoor or semiformal wedding, think violet, fuchsia, mango, magenta and green. If bold and bright just isn’t your style, going with a subdued color scheme can be unexpected—for example, icy blue will exude a cool and refreshing atmosphere, and pastels can feel just as appropriate in the summer months as the springtime. For a palette that works with almost any style—from ultra-formal to relaxed and natural—look to a combo of white and ivory with green accents.

Bright and cheery patterned table numbers allow guests to find their place with ease!

seasonal sips Consider offering guests a cold drink like a fruity tea before the ceremony begins. Displaying different flavors (and colors!) of lemonade or tea in giant glass jugs, along with cut fruit for garnishes, makes for a fun setup during your cocktail hour or reception. When it comes to cocktails, think fresh. “Create custom cocktails using seasonal berries that are light and refreshing such as a berry bramble,” Hotchkiss suggests.

K

light bites Staying local and seasonal can give you the freshest menu and keep your budget down. Another summer menu must: Stick to lighter fare when the temperatures rise. Heavy food and heat don’t mix, Lee says. “Serve chilled foods like gazpacho, fruit salads and fresh salads. This will help people from feeling sluggish on top of the heat.”

247

summery stems If you love vibrant flowers, a summer wedding is for you. Year-round blooms include wedding favorites like roses, tulips, dahlias, anemones, gardenias, lilies, hydrangeas, asters, gerber daisies, alstroemeria, baby’s breath, orchids, chrysanthemums and tuberose. Opt for flowers that will stay fresh throughout the entire day, especially if you’re planning to take photos or exchange vows in the sun. Look for ones with a waxy texture to ensure staying power, or keep a vase of cool water nearby.

SEASONAL SWEETS • Serve cake à la mode to keep guests cool—consider fresh flavors like strawberry or lavender-infused ice cream. Or offer a fruit-flavored gelato. • Have your caterer present each guest with a petite serving of summer peach cobbler, topped with a dollop of fresh cream. • To cool off dancing guests, if it fits with your theme, you can serve mini-milkshakes with fun old-fashioned straws or even fresh fruit ice pops. • Serve a mini-scoop trio of sorbet that mimics your wedding colors. With so many kinds to choose from, you’re sure to find a yummy flavor that suits your style. >>

suit up for the season Make stay-cool attire paramount when choosing your and the rest of your party’s attire.

grooms and groomsmen “No wool,” Lee says. “Same as the ladies, select lighter fabrics like linen, seersucker or cotton.” A groom can look dapper in a crisp linen suit, or for the ultimate in beach-casual, choose khakis and a button-down shirt. While tuxes and dark suits are more fitting for formal weddings, think light for outdoor affairs. “Men should wear light colors instead of black suits. Gray or even navy will be cooler,” Hotchkiss says. If you’re hosting a more formal event, dress the men in fewer layers (no cummerbund or vest, for example). Regardless of what they wear, Lee recommends having a change of shirt for the groom and his men. “You will also probably want to bring one to two extra dress shirts and undershirts in case you soak through your first one at photos before the ceremony!”

bridesmaids Like the wedding dress, stick to lighter materials. Gowns made of flowing, breathable fabrics, like jersey, eyelet, seersucker and chiffon, are more tolerable when the mercury starts to

K

rise. Decide on a level of formality, then work with your bridal salon to explore your best warm-weather options. >>

248

brides Consider opting for a shorter skirt, or choose a high-low hemline for the drama of a ball gown with the ventilation of a shorter style. You want to feel comfortable and confident— not sticky. “Avoid satin dresses,” Lee says. “Chiffon, organza and linen are all much lighter fabrics and will be much more airy.” Summer isn’t the ideal time to embrace the sleeve trend. But if you go strapless or sleeveless, just don’t have tan lines, Lee warns. “Wait until the last minute to get into your dress to avoid staining or sweating.”

seasonal setbacks and solutions Knowing how to avoid (or deal with) these obstacles will keep your guests comfortable and ensure your day goes off without a hitch.

the setback: heat and strong sun Make sure an outdoor venue offers some shade or air-conditioning (tent rentals can include portable air-conditioning systems). If the location is outdoors with minimal shade, keep the ceremony short and sweet and have cold water bottles, fans and umbrellas on hand for guests. Sunburn can give the term “blushing bride” a whole new meaning— consider wearing a moisturizer and foundation or powder that contains SPF.

the setback: wilting blooms Have flowers delivered the day of the wedding and make sure there’s a refrigerator on-site to store them before the ceremony starts. When your photographer isn’t snapping away, have a friend or bridesmaid hold your bouquet in a shady spot, or place it in a vase of cool water. If your blooms will be exposed to the summer heat for an extended amount of time, keep a spray water bottle on hand and give them a light misting every hour or so.

the setback: summer showers Even though summer is your best bet in terms of weather for outdoor weddings, you should always have a backup plan in case of extreme heat or rain. “Summer showers are a big risk in most areas,” Lee says. “Always, always, always have a plan B covered area.” Reserve an air-conditioned indoor venue nearby or a tent and portable air-conditioners.

the setback: competition for venues and vendors Summer is prime wedding time, which means you’ll face competition from other to-be-weds for popular venues and vendors. Book early. As soon as you get engaged, start looking for venues and reserve any must-have vendors. It’s also a good idea to start reserving spaces for your surrounding events. Since your vendors will be booked up with other weddings throughout the summer, take advantage of their more focused attention and time by working ahead on the plans during the off-season months rather than making most of the big decisions in the weeks before your wedding when they’ll be working events every weekend.

K

“Summer is prime wedding time, which means you’ll face competition from other to-be-weds.” the setback: bugs “Beware of bugs!” Lee says. “They’re thriving at this time of year and may be a nuisance to guests.” Have an exterminator or landscaper spray a few days before to avoid a mosquito or gnat infestation. Stock up on bug spray and other bug repellents. “Light citronella candles and tiki torches around the perimeter to deter buggies,” Lee adds. If the ceremony or party is outdoors, have a communal basket of repellent at the ready. For a more display-friendly alternative to bottles of drugstore spray, try Aromaflage (Aromaflage.com)— insect repellent in pretty bottles that looks and smells like a fine fragrance. It’s perfect for displaying on tables and in bathrooms.

250

the setback: few free weekends Between long holiday weekends, summer vacations and other weddings, convenient wedding weekends seem few and far between. Send save-the-dates extra-early—nine months or more before the wedding—to get your day marked on everyone’s calendar. And think twice before scheduling your wedding for a long holiday weekend. Not only do many families have long-standing plans, but travel expenses tend to peak then as well. “Keep in mind you’ll be competing with other summer weddings your friends may get invited to, since it’s such a popular time of year,” Lee says. Make your day stand out from the sea of other summertime soirees with special touches. PHILIP FICKS

hen Ryan Duffield (27 and an attorney) met Jamie Loeks (also 27 and an attorney) during their first year of law school at the University of Michigan, he joked that she was the most nautical person he knew (she was on the sailing team in college and loves the beach). So three years later, when it came time to plan their wedding, they chose the shores of Lake Michigan— where Jamie spent summers as a child—for their day. They went with a Kate Spade– inspired look: preppy stripes, polka dots and monograms. By combining formal, indoor elements (think: upholstered wingback chairs and plush ottomans) with their open-air lakeside locale, the couple and their planner created an elegant-yet-relaxed beach-chic affair. Textured linens, feminine florals, natural wood and glam pops of gold paired with a color palette of white, navy and pink brought it all to life. —MO

the bridal party’s style Jamie’s five bridesmaids wore the same navy-and-white polka-dot convertible gown with their choice of neckline. All the ladies (and some of the men) skipped shoes in favor of bare feet. Ryan stood out from his five groomsmen in a navy suit and a coral-and-blue striped tie. the escort cards Jamie’s mother spent months collecting driftwood, which they later bleached and then hand calligraphed with the name and seating assignment of each guest. the lounge d´ ecor The couple set up a formal lounge area, complete with woven chenille couches, white end tables and framed photographs, on the sand—just mere steps from the water.

nspired by her love of vintage blueand-white chinoiserie vases, Leslie Cox (29 and a project management coordinator for TRI Pointe Homes) knew early on in the planning process that she wanted a color palette of navy blue, white and pale pink for her wedding to Ryan Long (32 and a business and engineering operations manager for Boeing). With the help of Amy Bird Shapiro of Mindy Weiss Party Consultants, the Southern California–based couple transformed their traditional ballroom venue into a romantic indoor garden full of überluxe details and accents. Rustic, organic elements like wooden farm tables and live trees combined with a sophisticated black tie vibe to create a one-of-a-kind day—complete with more than 60 chinoiserie vases. —MO

hen a member of The Knot team gets married, we naturally expect fabulous things. And if someone in the art department gets married? We expect incredible things. So when our art director, Meghan Corrigan, 33, was planning her wedding to Gregory Scott (32 and an attorney), we could barely contain our excitement. From the paper flower wall to the maple leaf groom’s cake (Greg is from Canada), Meghan pulled off an elegant wedding in her hometown of Haworth, New Jersey, full of custom design elements, playful personal touches and, of course, impeccable style. The floral watercolor liner from the invitation suite (which Meghan designed herself) inspired both the day’s whimsical color palette and vibe. The couple used sage green as their dominant color and accented it with pops of bolder hues like pink, orange, deep green and the occasional touch of gold. — MO

Forget Match.com! Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are the new online matchmakers. And it’s no surprise. In our digital world, an intriguing tweet, photo or even a blog post can inspire a total stranger to make a comment. For many, these comments are the beginnings of a conversation that, for some lucky ones, turns into a relationship. host of CNN’s Reliable Sources, was home for the holidays browsing his Twitter feed when some of Jamie’s tweets appeared as retweets. Granted they were about the road closure nightmares caused by the more than 20 inches of snow just dumped on the city, but something about them caught his eye. He clicked to check out her profile, and his hunch was right—her avatar (a pop-art-inspired caricature) was very cute. Within the hour he had direct messaged her and a few short weeks later they had their first date. It wasn’t weird to Brian— he’d previously dated a few people he met on Twitter—but Jamie says she “had no idea people hit on other people over Twitter!” The two quickly became tweethearts, and Jamie now live-tweets Brian’s show every Sunday. And this past February, the pair wed in Philadelphia where the bride, the groom and all their guests live-tweeted the festivities using the #thestelters.

Judging from Michelle’s tweeted response (an enthusiastic “YES!”), and the accompanying picture of the engagement ring on her hand, it all happily came together in the end. The couple is currently planning an intimate vineyard wedding for this fall. As for where they should go on their honeymoon? Joanna says “We’re taking suggestions… on Twitter!”

friends ’til the end THE COUPLE Kendra Cowser, 30, and Sean O’Brien, 32 WHEN THEY MET January 2010 MARRIED September 14, 2013 THEIR STORY Kendra rarely friended anyone on Facebook other than people she knew, but in 2009 fate stepped in when Sean sent her a friend request. Although Kendra didn’t know him, he lived near her hometown of Galva, Illinois, and thought they might have mutual friends in common, so she accepted. None of his friends looked familiar though so she just let it go, until six months later when Sean started “liking” some of her photos. One night as she was packing up her apartment in Chicago getting ready to coincidentally head back to Galva, Kendra finally decided to satisfy her curiosity and message him. Sean responded immediately and they ended up writing back and forth all night. And then every day forward. It turns out Sean didn’t know her but she popped up in his list of people he might know. “I saw a cute girl and I wanted to add her,” he recalls. Both admitted that neither of them was planning on starting a relationship at the time, but it sure turned into one. Two days after Kendra was back in Galva, Sean was at her doorstep with a bottle of wine to celebrate meeting in person. In July 2012, Sean messaged her on Facebook (of course!) to ask her to go ring shopping—his way of proposing—and last September they threw a huge bash that their guests described as “the best wedding they’ve ever been to!”

wedding gowns 101 We know your first priority—finding the (other) one—your dress.

gown silhouette styles empire-waist gown The skirt in this gown style extends from the bustline. It’s a great choice for pear-shaped brides because it disguises the hips.

trumpet gown The skirt in this style flares out just below the hips, creating a semi-full skirt (shaped like the bell of a trumpet) without extra volume and bulk.

mermaid gown This gown is a bit more fitted and flares out at the knee (or lower). It’s a great silhouette for showing off curves.

a-line gown This universally flattering style hugs the torso and has a flared skirt in, you guessed it, an A-shape.

ball gown The ball gown has a fitted bodice and a dramatic full skirt. Busty brides will love this shape because it creates balanced proportions.

sheath This slim, form-fitting silhouette hugs the body from head-to-toe. It’s the perfect look for casual, intimate weddings.

finding the right white skin tone Dark go for Stark white, or almost any shade skin tone Medium with olive tones go for Champagne or diamond white skin tone Medium with yellow tones go for Off-white or creamy ivory skin tone Fair and pink-toned skin go for Ivory

wedding party 101 The least you need to know to coordinate your wedding party’s look.

bridesmaids • For a modern, but still put-together look—pick the color and fabric, but consider letting your bridesmaids choose the neckline and silhouette. • When shopping, bring one or two bridesmaids—maybe the maid who has the body or coloring that’s most similar to the rest of the bridal party, or the maid who is the most difficult to fit. • Ask for your maids’ advice, but make the final decision yourself. You’re the one who knows the big picture—overall look, formality and people’s budgets—best. • The bridesmaids should try to place their orders at the same time to ensure that the dresses will be made from the same dye lot. • Allow three months’ delivery and alteration time for the dresses. • Don’t forget the extras. Should the maids all have the same shoes, jewelry, hairstyles, handbags or wraps? Communicate your desires clearly to your maids. Email works great for this.

scoop neckline

one-shoulder neckline

groom & groomsmen • Brush up on your tuxedo terms and take a peek in your own closet before you begin suit shopping. This will give you an idea of what style you like best—notched or shawl lapel, standard or spread collar. • The groomsmen should dress around the groom. A consistent look is great, but the groom should sport some detail (a boutonniere, tie or pocket square) that differentiates him from the pack. shawl lapel notched lapel

• The tuxedo is classic, but consider all your options. Marrying by the beach? Try a more casual jacket and trousers. Having an ultra-formal wedding? Pick a cutaway coat, gray-striped trousers, gray vest and ascot. peaked lapel

flower girls & ring bearers • Flower girls and ring bearers don’t have to match the adults perfectly, but they should certainly fit in with the formality of the event. The only exception: Tuxedos aren’t necessary (and may not be available) for tykes under six. Our trick—substitute a black suit and a bow tie. • Be sure to dress your flower girl or ring bearer appropriately for their age. Strapless or halter dresses may be too sophisticated for the little ones (even with a cardigan), while overly froufrou tulle dresses might not look right on, say, a 10-year-old.

• Should you rent or buy? If you don’t attend many formal events or if your weight is frequently in flux, renting may be the way to go. If you’ll have three or four more good uses for a tux, the suit will pay for itself.

bora bora, french polynesia WHY GO This is what honeymoon dreams are made of: thatched-roof, over-water bungalows; crystal-clear turquoise lagoons; and swirling schools of colorful fish. WHERE TO STAY For the ultimate romantic rush, head to the super-luxurious St. Regis Bora Bora Resort (from $1,200, StRegisBoraBora.com) where you’ll find the aforementioned bungalows as well as a romance concierge. Yep, they’ll organize everything your heart desires, from a waiter sabering a bottle of champagne on your terrace at sunset to bespoke fireworks. WHAT TO DO View the majestic Mount Otemanu, which towers above the main island, by bike or by boat, then explore the inner lagoon via submarine or with diving equipment. >>

HONEYMOONS

M A N T

st. john, us virgin islands WHY GO Unplug from the world on the most intimate of the three US Virgin Islands. St. John’s untouched beauty—over half the land is a national park—will make you feel like you’ve escaped civilization. WHERE TO STAY Caneel Bay is set on a private 170-acre peninsula amid a lush national park and seven jaw-dropping beaches (from $459, CaneelBay.com). Opt for the Very Important Honeymooners package and you’ll be welcomed with treats, like a six-inch cake that matches your original wedding cake (cool, right?). WHAT TO DO Take a tour of the Annaberg Sugar Plantation and learn about the sugar making and rum distilling process. Or explore the unique three-mile underwater snorkel trail at Trunk Bay that includes informative plaques, so you can read details about all of the fish and fauna you’ll admire as you swim on by.

IC

R

paris, france WHY GO Even if you’ve been before, the City of Light has a fantastic way of making you fall in love with it—and each other—all over again. From five-star hotels and dreamy side streets to decadent food and wine and iconic art and architecture, there are beaucoup reasons it’s long been considered the world’s most romantic city. WHERE TO STAY No trip to Paris is complete without a shopping spree! Reserve a room in the elegant ivy-draped Le Pavillon de la Reine in the fashion-forward Marais district and you’ll be steps from a chic mix of trendy boutiques and wonderfully eclectic vintage stores (from $523, Pavillon-de-la-Reine.com). WHAT TO DO Steal a smooch or two at Le Mur des Je T’aime (a wall that has “I Love You” written in 250 different languages) in the 18th arrondissement. Ooh la la!

K

charleston, south carolina WHY GO This Southern charmer is full of magnolia-tinged history, warm hospitality, stately homes, a handful of friendly beach communities and one of the most innovative restaurant scenes in America. WHERE TO STAY Built around 1804, Zero George Street is the perfect pick for boutique hotel lovers (from $349, ZeroGeorge.com). Couples who cook should sign up for the biweekly low-country culinary classes held in the Kitchen Carriage House, which has been lovingly renovated (keeping the original stucco, brick and heart pine floors). WHAT TO DO Get cozy on a private carriage ride with Palmetto Carriage Works ($135, PalmettoCarriage.com). Then head to Husk (HuskRestaurant.com) and share the local fire-roasted Rappahannock oysters (aphrodisiac, anyone!?), or say adios to that wedding diet and indulge in the housemade Sweetwater Valley cheddar pimento cheese, served with pickled ramps.

cayman islands WHY GO Grand Cayman’s beaches are dotted with mega-chain hotels and Little Cayman is super-sleepy, but Cayman Brac is wild, rugged and full of friendly locals—and few tourists. Located 90 miles northeast of Grand Cayman, the Brac attracts those seeking romance as well as avid divers, hikers and rock climbers. WHERE TO STAY Each of Brac Reef Beach Resort’s 40 rooms have views of the white sand beaches and crystal-clear blue ocean. The all-inclusive property offers snorkeling and diving on site at its fully equipped facility (from $847 per person for a 7-night stay, BracReef.com). WHAT TO DO Walk along the footpath to take in lunar landscapes and limestone cliffs as you make your way to the lighthouse at the tip of the island. Set up a free tour by emailing the Cayman Island Department of Tourism (bracdc@gov.ky). On weekends, mingle with locals at La Esperanza and enjoy live music.

yarra valley, australia WHY GO Lush Yarra Valley is a mere 45-minute drive away from the low mountains called Dandenong Ranges, but they’re worlds apart. In the Valley, indulge in local wines and cheeses while enjoying the Instagram-worthy view. Then, explore the Ranges’s fern glades, towering forests and artsy villages. Trust us— it’s worth the 26-hour flight. WHERE TO STAY In between the Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges is Balinese Retreat, a private spa villa reserved for just one couple at a time—seriously, it’s the ultimate private paradise. The insanely generous three-night honeymoon package includes a laundry list of luxuries, like a welcome bottle of champagne, one dozen roses and a lakeside Thai banquet dinner on the property’s private lagoon ($3,999 per couple, BalineseRetreat.com.au). WHAT TO DO Soar over the Valley on a sunrise hot-air-balloon ride before touching back down for a champagne breakfast at one of the vineyards.

SHUTTERSTOCK


lake district, england WHY GO Look up idyllic in the dictionary and you just might find a picture of this scenic region in northwest England. With glittering lakes, the country’s only bona fide forest and moody mist-ringed mountains, it’s no wonder 19th-century Romantics like poet William Wordsworth flocked here for inspiration. WHERE TO STAY Hidden at the end of a road is Lakefield Boathouse (from $1,700 for a 7-night stay, LakefieldBoathouse.com), a cozy B&B on Britain’s second-largest lake, complete with a private shoreline. Take the property’s rowboat out for a romantic afternoon paddle. WHAT TO DO Stop by for teatime and a stroll through the gardens at Rydal Mount, Wordsworth’s impressive home that remains in the care of his descendants (RydalMount.co.uk).

maldives WHY GO This is the honeymoon you may have been envisioning since you were a kid—crystal-clear blue water, pristine white sands and ridiculously romantic overwater villas (à la the movie Couples Retreat). Actor and comedian Andy Samberg even honeymooned there recently with his wife, Joanna Newsom (see p. 128 for more!). WHERE TO STAY Gili Lankanfushi Maldives is a quiet, romantic island in a glittering lagoon, and its villas come with dedicated butler service (from $1,145, GiliLankanfushi.com). Pop champagne as you watch the sun set from a dhoni cruise and arrange for an exclusive dinner for two on One Palm Island.
