The Road to Mrs. – Where are You Getting Your Garter?

One of the things still left to check off of my wedding to-do list is purchasing a garter. To my surprise and (disappointment), Victoria’s Secret is lacking in this department. [Confession: I have a gift card to VS that I was hoping I could use to snag a garter but no cigar.] So when I […]

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – Just a Friend

Many of you between the ages of 30 and 45 remember the hit song from Biz Markie – Just a Friend. Although this was just a song, it was and is a topic that many newlywed couples are forced to tackle. In my opinion, too many people expect their significant other to morph into a […]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

So here’s the long and short of it: I’m smitten by the idea of bridesmaids wearing different dresses!
