Mila Kunis Walks Down The Aisle!

Don’t worry, it’s just as a bridesmaid! Actress, Mila Kunis, was seen wearing a short, light peach colored bridesmaid’s dress with her actor boyfriend, Ashton Kutcher, not trailing far behind. The wedding was for Kunis’ brother and of course she invited Kutcher as her date.

Rumors have been swirling around in the media that these two actors’ may be walking down the aisle to say their own “I do’s” soon enough, but only time and reports will tell.

Kunis was asked to be a bridesmaid by her brother’s fiancée – and she was also seen wearing a gold band around her ring finger, but onlookers did mention that it did not strike them as an engagement ring, but rather an accessory.

According to eyewitnesses at the wedding, Kutcher was welcomed by the Kunis family and was even invited to be in some of the family wedding photos. One source from the wedding claimed that Kutcher was very much into the wedding and the overall feeling of joy that was surrounding everyone there – and that could be seen by his body language towards Kunis and her entire family as they posed for pictures on the altar.

 

As soon as Kutcher finalized his infamous divorce from actress, Demi Moore, the public assumed that Kutcher would soon after pop the question to Kunis, but as said before – only time will tell. One thing is for certain though; they looked very natural in the wedding atmosphere.

Financial Obligation Of Being A Bridesmaid

Pink-Bridesmaids-Dresses-500x333Regardless whether it is their second, third, or first, weddings reign supreme in the biggest life celebrations. As soon as the future groom pops the question, it is then the future bride’s duty to propose to her best friends on whether or not they will be her bridesmaid. However, in some instances, bridesmaids end up turning down the offer due to the overall cost which includes accessories, the dress, gifts, and travel. For some serial bridesmaids, they can collect “bridesmaid debt,” due to the overall estimation for a standard bridesmaid being $1,695.

The standard receipt for a bridesmaid according to www.Mint.com:

Dress – $150

Travel [wedding, shower, bachelorette party] - $300 each

Gifts – $200

Soraya Jollon, a New York based wedding planner, explains, “The majority of bridesmaids are happy to buy a dress. If a bride has historically been the type to figure out exactly what each person owes when the bill arrives at a group dinner, she may ruffle some feathers if she insists that her friends buy a $500 dress and matching shoes.” However, a bridesmaid will typically put up with the bride because every wedding is usually stereotypical, and nothing that happens is something you have not heard of before.

The culture of a wedding is to be expensive, and the hardest thing for a bridesmaid is making sure your bride will understand if some things are a little too pricey. As a bridesmaid, it is important to voice anything financial so you do not end up screwing yourself over in the end with debt or cause drama between the bridal party.

‘Say Yes To The Dress: Bridesmaids’ Begins Filming New Season

51oIdzgbtaL._SX500_Small towns all over the nation have been going crazy over filming for TLC’s original show, Say Yes To The Dress: Bridesmaids. The show was a spinoff of TLC’s other original program, Say Yes To The Dress for the brides. The concept revolves around a bridal shop where bridal parties visit the store searching for the perfect bridesmaid’s dresses. It always proves to be very dramatic and emotional because someone always ends up breaking down into a crying mess in either joy or frustration.

The next season has filmed episodes for bridal parties in Cincinnati, Nashville, and a few military families scattered all over the nation. While the show gets its ratings for the drama, the show still provides good entertainment when some trips to the bridal shops run smoothly. It also helps future brides see what they could possibly be in for, so there are even some life lessons to be learned.

Say Yes To The Dress: Bridesmaids has proven that picking your bridesmaids is not a process to just skip over and look at all your potential picks. It is amazing what some of these sisters and friends can act like when they are put in a dress that was not their first pick. Regardless, it is kind of inevitable that there will be some form of drama regardless if you are watching it on television or actually bridesmaid dress shopping. The show airs on TLC almost every day and usually in marathon form and it fluctuates between the original show with wedding dress shopping to the bridesmaids episodes.

Bacon Themed Wedding Wins Newlyweds a Honeymoon

custom bridesmaid dresses
A recent pork lovers contest found a newlywed couple having a bacon themed wedding that won them a honeymoon to the pork capital of the world: Baltimore, MD. The couple had everything from bacon wrapped bouquets to throwing bacon bits at the end of the ceremony instead of rice. Not all newlyweds envision their dream wedding to be covered in bacon, and if you’re stressed out about wedding planning there are a number of things that you can do to ensure that your big day goes as smoothly as possible.

Your wedding can be one of the most hectic moments that you and your partner will experience together. In many cases the bride gets so caught up in making sure that the wedding is picture perfect that they begin to lose the value of why they’re planning a wedding in the first place. There are a lot of decisions that the groom takes no part in, depending on the type of relationship you have. Trying to plan a wedding that is for the both of you will help eliminate much of the stress that wedding planning can bring into a relationship. You must remember every day to value your partner, and not to get lost in your wedding plans. A wedding is just for the day, a marriage is for a lifetime. Ensuring that you continue to do the things you did before the wedding plans as a couple will help keep you both happy.

Ask for help, weddings can be fun to plan if you allow for others to help you when you need it. There will be times that decisions will be made without both the bride and groom, and these are the moments where you can call your friends and family and have fun with your decision making. While allowing others to partake in your wedding, usually the bridal party and in laws, it will give your wedding day more value to those who aren’t getting married that day. This will also alleviate some of the stress and feelings of being overwhelmed. In addition, having help gives you the security that you aren’t handling everything on your own when your partner is unavailable.

A major thing to always remember when planning your wedding is to keep an open mind and open heart. There will be times where the idea you’ve had in your mind just won’t work out the way you want it to, and by remaining open-minded you will automatically reduce the stress of having everything done a certain way. It’s great to have a specific idea of how you want your wedding to look like and your wedding day to go, however life is unexpected and it would be silly to put all your coins in one bag. Always have a plan B, this way if something does happen you’re already prepared for it. Being nervous and stressed out is normal, but having your heart and mind set on one thing that may or may not work can lead to disaster. For instance, are you planning an outdoor wedding? You should definitely have a plan B in case the weather doesn’t turn out the way you had hoped.

Always remember that this wedding is to celebrate the love between you and your future lifelong partner, try not to turn against each other while planning this big day. Continue to show each other love and appreciation. A happy marriage starts with a happy and healthy relationship. This can and will get crazy during the time that your wedding is being planned, particularly when it comes to picking out custom bridesmaid dresses, so just make sure to not get crazy on each other, unless it’s in a good way. The smoothest and best part of a wedding will ultimately be with the bride and groom’s happiness.

Wedding Videographer Scammed 150 Newlywed Couples

custom bridesmaid dresses
Jesse Clark, owner of SureShot Portraits LLC was taken to court this week when Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley filed a civil lawsuit stating that he had taken money from over 150 newlywed couples and never provided them with video footage of their wedding. He has been ordered to pay $500,000 in damages. Supposedly, Clark would take the money from the couple and then hold the footage hostage if they didn’t remove internet complaints, and would often never deliver anything and never give a refund. It’s important that as a couple, you avoid these types of business owners if you can help it, which in most cases you can. SureShot Portraits has an F rating from the Better Business Bureau and by doing a little online research you can easily tell that they are a vendor you’d want to avoid hiring. Make sure that before you hire any vendors for you wedding, unless you know them personally or have had a friend or family member recommend them that you take the time to do a little research before you trust them to render any services pertaining to your wedding.

There are a lot of people who try to capitalize on the wedding industry who aren’t professional and have little to no wedding experience. The stress of planning a wedding can often cause people to hire vendors on a whim without conducting thorough research. That being said, it’s imperative that when you begin to plan your wedding you get recommendations from your friends and family first when it comes to the videographer, photographer, caterer, custom wedding dress designer, and more. If your friends and family have no sound recommendations then it’s time to start using the internet as a resource. Make sure that every vendor you consider hiring has a good online reputation and doesn’t have any negative reviews online. Additionally, don’t be afraid to get quotes from multiple vendors and compare prices in order to decrease the amount of money that you spend. A lot of people tend to have the misconception that the most expensive vendors are the best vendors and this simply isn’t the case. In order to pick the best vendor, it’s important to get the word of mouth recommendations of your friends and family first, and then take to the internet if you need to do so.

John Travolta Crashes Weekend Wedding in Georgia

wedding_picture
John Travolta traveled to Georgia last week in order to have his pilots license renewed and while he was there he met a couple that was to be wed the following day. The three were all out together at a bar, and shared drinks and stories. The next day, Travolta surprised the couple by showing up at their wedding in jeans and a baseball cap. Despite his attire, the couple was thrilled, and the bride, groom and bridal part all took pictures with Travolta. This is not the first time that John Travolta has crashed a wedding. In 1977 he and Robin Williams walked in on a ceremony in Santa Barbara. The seasoned wedding crasher gave the lucky couple a memorable experience that made their big day even more special than it would have originally been.

It’s no big surprise that not everyone can have a celebrity drop in at their wedding but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t things that you can do in order to ensure that your wedding turns out to be the most memorable day of your life. Having a ceremony that includes your friends and family is usually enough of a reason to make your wedding day one of the most special experiences that you will ever have. The venue also plays a big role in how memorable your wedding day will be. That being said, it’s important to take extra care when determining which venue to hold your wedding at. Through the decor, venue, and landscape you can create nearly any type of atmosphere you want.

It’s also important to take advantage of the wedding menu planning to the best of your ability. Make sure that when you are planning the menu, you take into account everything that you want your wedding to entail. If you have a specific theme, you can use the menu in order to highlight the theme and make sure that your guests are well fed and happy. The menu can often be one of the biggest highlights of the wedding so it’s important to take great care when it comes to planning out the food that you intend to serve.

Pay special attention to the attire at your wedding because you will be photographed in pictures that will be around for the rest of your life. Make sure that if you are wearing a custom wedding dress and having your bridesmaids wear custom bridesmaid dresses that you choose a designer with an impeccable reputation. The dresses should fit perfectly and at the same time appear well made and be comfortable. The wedding photos are one of the most important aspects when it comes to building life long memories and therefore it’s important that you make wise choices when it comes to your wedding attire.

Sean Parker Pays 2.5 Million to Wed in an Environmentally Sensitive Location

custom bridesmaid dresses
Big Sur is located on the central coast of California, and refers to the area where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise out of the Pacific Ocean. This beautiful location is not an ideal spot for having a wedding, as the terrain is rough and there are many endangered plants and animals that could be sensitive to the presence of a large group of people. For Sean Parker, co-founder of Napster and former Facebook president, none of this seemed to matter. Parker has just paid 2.5 million dollars to appease the California Coastal Commission in exchange for being able to follow through with his wedding plans.

Parker commissioned and went through with major construction plans in the area before the Commission caught wind of what was going on. Once the plans were already in motion, the Commission couldn’t stop the construction. Parker has already built a small village in the beautiful coastal region. Rather than demand that he tear down the structure, they settled with Parker who was said to have been very cooperative and kind. Parker has also agreed to develop a mobile app that brings awareness to the environmental issues that the region faces. The dismantling of the construction will be overseen by environmental professionals in order to ensure that the local community and the region are not disturbed. The wedding took place last weekend and was said to have cost nearly 15 million dollars.

This type of wedding budget is obviously not typical, and if you are looking to have a beautiful wedding in a lush location, you can do so without being a billionaire. The fact that Parker chose such a sensitive location and had to build his own village in order to sustain the people who were in attendance speaks volumes to the convenience of the location. It’s important that when you are choosing a wedding destination, you are practical about the money that you’ll need to spend in order to accommodate your wedding party. Destination weddings can be tricky and many people find that some of their closest friends and family are not able to attend the event due to the inconvenience of travel and/or being able to afford accommodations. Always keep in mind other peoples budgets, especially when it comes to planning a destination wedding. Your wedding day is something that you’ll remember for the rest of your life and therefore you want to take every measure possible in order to ensure that your closest loved ones are in attendance, even if that means cutting back on the money that they will have to spend in order to be in attendance on your big day.

Man Proposed to Girlfriend on Vine, Girlfriend Responds on Twitter

childhood trauma
In the latest social media wedding proposal, Los Angeles business consultant Curt Buthman proposed to his girlfriend by posting a video of himself popping the big question on Vine. Vine is one of the newer social media platforms that enables you to take short videos of things and post them onto the outlet to share with your friends, family and co-workers. As if this type of wedding proposal weren’t impersonal enough, Buthman’s girlfriend responded “Yes!” to the proposal on Twitter! You’d think this was all one giant hoax, and that the couple must have had a “real” or more intimate proposal beforehand, but alas it was all done through social media. The proposal and response alone prove that this couple is meant to be together.

Despite the impersonal nature of using social media to propose to your loved one, the gesture is also loaded with the subcontext of needing attention and wanting to get married for the wrong reasons. You can only hope that if someone proposes on social media that their intentions are pure and that they are marrying you for the right reasons. A lot of proposals go south even when they aren’t mal-intended, so when it comes to proposing to your loved one try, at all costs, to avoid doing so over a social media outlet. The primary purpose of social media is to connect to a larger audience. A wedding proposal is an intimate and personal gesture that is symbolic of how you will spend the rest of your life. That being said, it’s very important to carefully examine the way in which you are planning to propose and perhaps keep social media as a non-option from the very beginning.

If you are unsure about how to propose to your loved one, don’t be afraid to use the internet for inspiration. That isn’t to say that you should use the internet as a means to actually propose. Be careful about the way in which you chose to propose and try to make it as intimate and personal as possible. The only thing worse than a bad proposal is the love of your life rejecting a future with you because of it. It’s well worth the extra effort to go above and beyond when it comes to planning a proposal that your loved one has always dreamed of. In the long run the one thing that is certain is that when it comes to proposing to your loved one you need to put down the app, social media outlet, iPhone, laptop etc. and make it an experience that isn’t reduced to a technological gesture. By doing so, you will ensure a future with the person that you love and end up living a beautiful, happy and healthy life.

T-Rex Chasing Wedding Party in Photo Goes Viral

custom wedding dresses

Last week, photographer Quinn Miller posted this picture on his Facebook page with the title “things got real crazy at this wedding”. Miller is a photographer and was trying to please the groom, who is an avid dinosaur lover. The picture was then posted to Reddit by one of the bride’s sorority sisters where it quickly went viral. Miller gave the bridal party specific instructions to genuinely run away from the superimposed T-Rex behind them and to look scared. The bride and groom, as well as their bridal party, were said to have been very fun and cooperative and that’s partly why the photo came out so great. The couple, who is currently away on their honeymoon, does not have any phone or internet access and therefore have no idea that their wedding picture has gained so much attention. This will be a nice surprise for both of them upon their return.

Finding a good wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task. As we posted last week, wedding photos have the potential to go horribly wrong. It’s important that prior to hiring a wedding photographer, you take a look at their portfolio and make sure that you can see their talent through the photos they have taken in the past. If the photographer doesn’t have a portfolio, you may want to re-consider hiring them. Most established photographers have a volume of work that they can showcase because they are proud of the photos that they’ve taken. Be wary of any photographer who doesn’t have work that they can show you because it usually means that they’re new and merely trying to build their portfolio and you shouldn’t let them use your wedding to do so.

If the photographer you’re planning on using doesn’t have a portfolio, they shouldn’t be charging you to photograph your wedding. It’s okay to take a chance on an amateur photographer that you know is very talented, but they should not be charging you because they are going to be able to use your wedding photos to bring in new business once the occasion is over. This tactic is good for couples who do not have a large budget and are trying to cut down on expenses when they can. If you are going to try and enlist someone to photograph your wedding for free, make sure that you trust them and that you’ve seen that they are a capable photographer in one way or another, despite that fact that they do not have a portfolio. This can be a great way to not only help out someone who is trying to come up in the photography industry, but it’s a sure fire way to help you save money when it comes to planning your wedding.
