Vera Wang Debuts Black Wedding Dresses

On Sunday 10/16, Vera Wang debuted her new Fall 2012 bridal collection and it featured some new wedding dresses IN BLACK!  Obviously not a traditional bridal look, but I think the dresses look great.  Any thoughts?  Would you ever consider wearing a black or other non-traditional color wedding dress?






As of right now the collection isn't available on Vera Wang's official website, but you can take a look at some of the dresses from the fashion show here.

Save by planning your wedding the way you plan your travel!

Here's an interesting idea from wedding planning site getmarried.com:  if your wedding is on a tight budget, why not plan your venue the way you would try to book airline tickets?  When you try to book flights online, have you ever noticed that you might get a better price if you fly out of a nearby airport instead of the one closest to you?  The same may be true when planning your wedding!



According to national wedding budget information compiled by Get Married Media, West Virginia ($6,935), Oregon ($7,697), Utah ($7,852) and Montana ($8,059) rank tops with brides looking to save while Washington D.C. ($21,858) and Northern New Jersey ($21,247) brides spend more.


The priciest area topped out at a whopping ($24,700) New York City. Other expensive regions include the U.S Virgin Islands ($20,917) and Hawaii ($17,488).



"Obviously, cost of living plays a huge role in couples' wedding budgets," says Karina Timmel, editor-in-chief of Get Married magazine. "In this weakened economy, it really pays to research and think not only outside-the-box, but possibly outside your immediate vicinity."


So how can you cut corners and still have the wedding of your dreams? Timmel suggests staging a mini destination wedding by picking an area, state or region that's close enough for guests to travel to easily, but still far enough way that you stay on budget. "New York City is a great example. With easy access to highways and mass transit, you and your guests can make a quick trip to Philly or venture further upstate to enjoy the rustic charms of Woodstock, both of which will cost about half of what you would normally pay if you chose to get married within the New York City metro area."


Other budget-saving suggestions include picking a wedding date that's off-season for your region, buying flowers and food that are native to your location, purchasing big-ticket items like your wedding dress outside city or state lines, and having your ceremony and reception at the same venue if you have your heart set on saying "I do" in a pricier area.

7 Geeky Wedding Pictures


So, I know that I just posted a story about a geeky wedding a few weeks ago, but it appears the internet has my back and another story about geek-themed weddings popped up.  Naturally this set off all kind of flags and alarms on my computer as anything geeky generally rises to the top of my reading list.

This post from the Mental Floss Blog features a few funny geek wedding pics, the Battlestar Galactica one above being my favorite.  The zombie engagement shoot that stormed the web a few months back is featured as well, and if you haven't seen those pictures yet, you really need to take a look.  The link will take you to the full series of photos from the original post.  So funny.

Hope you enjoy!
