Charli and Gibran's wedding day countdown has officially begun!

After 10 months of planning all the details, stressing over the bumps in the road, and praying for good outdoor wedding weather, my wedding weekend has arrived. On Sunday I will meet the man of my dreams at the altar and together we will begin an exciting new chapter in our lives. I can say for sure that I’m so ready to be Mrs. Watkins.

The Road to Mrs.: Countdown to the Honeymoon

Bride-to-be Charli gives tips on planning a stress-free honeymoon.

Our wedding is just nine days away! Lately, there’s been so much fuss about finalizing all the big day details that we almost forgot about the big trip that follows it — our honeymoon. We booked it months ago, so once we paid our balance with the travel agent we kind of just forgot all about it. Then, I looked at the calendar and realized that – in addition to everything else — we need to get ready for a 10-day tropical trip in the middle of October. Unlike most other vacations, there’s a lot more involved in honeymoon prep than just grabbing a passport and throwing some shorts in a bag. I knew we needed an action plan fast, so I came up with the following last-minute preparation plan. Vegas and Maui here we come! [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs.: Keeping Guests Entertained

Former Tie the Knot Tuesday couple, Camille and Uchenna, know how to get the party started!

Think about the last great wedding you went to. Though most brides wouldn’t want to hear it, but I’m guessing it wasn’t the lovely centerpieces, or the couple’s custom wedding logo that you remember. You know it was the abundance of delicious cocktails and all the good times on the dance floor that stayed on your mind days following. Everyone loves a good party! Sure, a wedding is really all about the couple who’s making it official, but why invite a bunch of people to help celebrate if you’re not going to party like it’s 1999? [Read more…]
