Ken and Barbie who? They might have corvettes, beach houses in Malibu, and a smiling entourage of fantastic, plastic friends, but Mattel's signature duo are no match for royalty. The iconic toy company has announced plans to release William and Catherine wedding dolls this April, which falls right in line with the Duke and Duchess’ one-year ...

When you're planning for one of the happiest days of your life, it seems like the world stands still and there's nothing else going on in your life--and in the world--but your wedding.  But, the reality is that the world has so many other issues that don't stop just because its your wedding day.  Some ...

In case you've been living on Pluto until today, Kim Kardashian got married to pro basketball-player Kris Humphries over the weekend. Sometime last week I either tweeted or posted on Facebook my idea for Kim Kardashian's wedding favors. I figured she'd take her cue from Will and Kate's wedding--they gave their guests expensive scarves with ...

Imagine spending two days around the some of the brightest, most talented women in the world. I spent this past weekend with more than 3,600 of my closest friends (mostly women) at the BlogHer '11 conference in San Diego, CA, where the high temps were in the mid-70s.  (I flew out of---and back to---mid-to-high 90s. ...

happy bride and groom

So intrigued with the idea of 40 weddings in 40 hours at a cost of only $80/couple (40 for the bride and 40 for the groom--hence the name) as a fundraiser for the Atlanta Children's Shelter (we told you about it in our October blog post), we just had to see it for ourselves. So, on ...

I don't know if it's their droll sense of humor or their entrepreneurial spirit, but the diametrically opposed version of the Bridal Fair---the Divorce Fair---is taking place in cities all over their continent, where more than 800,000 marriages end each year. Can you imagine the overall mood at one of these ...

That's Normal, as in Normal, IL. Don't get me wrong. I actually like Taco Bell. I'm crazy about their Burrito Supremes, but I never imagined the restaurant would make a desirable wedding venue. And they didn't even reserve the whole place. While customers ordered quesadillas at the counter, Caragh and Paul Brooks (they both had ...

First, mazel tov (good luck in Hebrew) to the happy couple! That said, I find this incredibly fascinating on a number of levels. To start with, I'm amazed there's a Jewish community in the town of Mattancherry, Kochi in India. According to the news story, the wedding was held in the Paradesi Synagogue in the ...
