Bride Pays a Surprise Visit to Her Sick Grandmother Before Walking Down the Aisle

  Bride Pays a Surprise Visit to Her Sick Grandmother Before Walking Down the Aisle Before arriving at her wedding ceremony, a bride paid a sweet visit to her grandmother who was too ill to attend. The bride came fully dressed on the big day to see her loving grandmother, who was admitted to St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, New York, just a week before. Though her grandmother had planned to see her granddaughter recite her vows on her big day, she developed chronic obstructive pulmonary disease after having an aortic valve replacement just months earlier, which led to her being hospitalized and unable to make it to the ceremony.

“I’ve had a lot of crazy requests in my career, but some of the highlights would have to be: suspending a giant wedding cake over the dance floor, hot air balloon rides for guests during the cocktail reception at an outdoor wedding in upstate New York, David Guetta requested as the DJ for an after-party, dropping a grand piano into a cave in Italy for a pianist to perform during dinner, an all-vegan menu for a 300-person wedding, turning an entire kitchen into a kosher kitchen at a five-star luxury property, and the coup de grâce…changing location of the wedding from the East Coast to Mexico during the 10 minutes the mother of the bride was out of the room in a planning meeting.” —Matthew Robbins, event planner and designer, and founder of Matthew Robbins Design

I got a divorce but am still with my ex husband — here's how we made it work

The process was expensive, painful, and in the end, one of the best decisions I ever made. But not for the reasons you may think.

Having a wedding planner can actually help you control these situations and get everyone back on track. We are there to support you , the couple, and although we know you want to make everyone happy it can be exhausting. Planning any large-scale event requires a lot of time and energy that most people just don’ t have. Unless you actually do have the time to interview 5 photographers, 6 wedding venues, 3 florists, 2 cake designers, negotiate and review each contract, do I need to go on? Then, to spend the next 12 months being in constant communication with each of them is a full time job.

some things that I should never say Yeah, I broke your heart like someone did to mine And now you won ' t love me for a second time I don't know why I run away, oh, girl Said I make you cry when I run away Girl, take me back 'cause I wanna stay Save your tears for another I realize that.

“I had a bride tell her bridesmaids they could select their own dress as long as it was a specific color of pink, but then she asked the girls to bring their dress to a bachelorette party in Miami. There she proceeded to make each one get a spray tan from a celebrity colorist (which the bridesmaids had to pay for on their own) so they could try on their dresses in person for her final approval.” —Anonymous

“A month prior to a wedding, I met with a client to discuss final details only to be surprised with a rather shocking story and request. The bride shared with me that her estranged father was just released from prison and might try to make an appearance at their wedding. She requested that we hire major security in the event he showed up trying to get even with family members. Luckily no crazy family showed up. The wedding ended beautifully and the newlyweds were so happy!” —Erica Rexroat, wedding planner and founder of One Love By Erica

How 20-Year-Old Queen Victoria Forever Changed Wedding Fashion

  How 20-Year-Old Queen Victoria Forever Changed Wedding Fashion The 20-year-old monarch unwittingly influenced nearly two centuries’ worth of bridal decisions.Kate Middleton may still be considered a bridal icon seven years after her wedding day, but Queen Victoria made such a sartorial impression nearly 180 years ago that her example of wearing white is still considered mandatory by many a traditional bride. Though the monarch is mostly remembered for her funeral-black wardrobe—which she devotedly wore for 40 years after the death of her beloved husband, Albert—she actually popularized the white wedding gown when she was a blushing, 20-year-old bride. And the color choice had nothing to do with purity either.

“A bride’s father surprised her with homemade moonshine wedding favors. As cute and pink as they were, I shared with her that we could not disperse to guests because it was illegal for guests to consume outside alcohol at the venue. The bride begged and we came to an agreement with the venue coordinator that a placard must be displayed for guests stating no consumption on property. Well, we all know that didn’t happen. An hour into the reception, we had people falling onto tables, disappearing into the expansive property (which was on the water) and you name what else. This wedding ended as a drunken mess that couldn’t be controlled to say the least.” Erica Rexroat

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be upholding one superstitious wedding tradition regarding the wedding dress.On Friday, People reported that Kensington Palace confirmed Harry will see Meghan in her wedding dress for the first time with the rest of us: when she walks down the aisle.

Lyrics: I met you in the dark, you lit me up You made me feel as though I was enough We danced the night away, we drank too much I held your hair back when You were throwing up Then you smiled over your shoulder For a minute, I was stone-cold sober I pulled you closer to my chest And you asked. me to stay over I said, I already told ya I think that you should get some rest I knew I loved you then But you 'd never know 'Cause I played it cool when I was scared of letting go I know I needed you But I never showed But I wanna stay with you until we're grey and old Just. say you won ' t let go Just say

All you wedding planners out there, I need your input. I am considering taking up wedding planning as a side job. But I want to do it right. Where do you suggest I get I have reached out to several experienced wedding planners (some did not even respond) requesting information on how they got started and if I could intern with them. Those that responded have provided invaluable information. One advised I take some courses on floral/fashion design and taking an online course in wedding planning would be a good way to information on the interworkings of wedding planning .

“We had two gorgeous ballroom options for one of my weddings and I was thrilled that the favorite of the two was available for what I thought was going to be a very fun event. It turns out the bride was very demanding—especially with regards to anything related to the decor of her wedding. This was a historic property so it has a very particular look and many rules that protect the aesthetic of the space. After booking she asked me (with a straight face) if we could repaint the ballroom to match her colors. I promptly said no and that was the easiest part. The biggest challenge was answering her without laughing.” —Meghan Ely, former wedding planner and owner of OFD Consulting

“Every couple that attended one of my weddings received a complimentary night's stay at the hotel. This is standard practice in the area and would come as no surprise to anyone attending the wedding; the bride and groom had been great to work with until this very detail came up. They were incredibly sensitive to the idea of people even knowing they were spending their first night there, so they made us come up with an elaborate plan in which they did the grand exit and then we slipped them through the kitchen and back hallway to get them upstairs. It sounds easier than it actually was. It forced the kitchen to rework their schedule to make space for the couple to slip in and out so no one knew they spent their first night together at the hotel where they had their wedding.” —Meghan Ely

Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress Took a Truly Impressively Long Time To Create

  Meghan Markle's Wedding Dress Took a Truly Impressively Long Time To Create British designer Claire Waight Keller revealed the exact number of hours it took to create Meghan Markle's Givenchy wedding dress.When it was reported that Blake Lively's bejeweled gown which she wore to the 2018 Met Gala took 600 hours to create, and Taylor Swift's dress worn at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards took 800 hours to make—both of which were designed by Versace—many were delighted to learn the length of time it took to make those couture gowns. But the Givenchy wedding dress worn by Markle at Windsor Castle took a truly impressive amount of time to create.

“One of the most memorable requests I’ve received as a wedding planner was to ensure the bride and groom's dog made it home safely after their wedding ceremony. At first glance this should be a simple solution, a.k.a. have a family member or friend drive him back. Nope, the bride and groom did not want the guests to miss a moment of their big day, so after considering a number of ways to safely get the pooch home, we finally came up with the idea of Uber! Thankfully, an acquaintance of the couple was an Uber driver and we made special arrangements for him to come after the wedding family photos to escort the dog home. What a funny scene this was seeing the dog—who did I mention donned a pair of wayfarer sunglasses—jet off in an Uber from their wedding by himself. Getting a text message photo update that the dog was in fact home safely was the best part.” —Kristine King, president and lead event director at Kristine King Events

“One of my brides did a full Harry Potter–themed wedding, where every guest was required to dress for the theme and have their costume approved by the bride to ensure only one character was represented at the event, including a head-to-toe commitment with full hair and makeup. The bride's gown also included a 30-inch train and veil and the bridal party was in full costume with a choreographed wedding ceremony with horns and scripted dances, Quidditch during cocktails, and a private two-hour photoshoot in the forest with real smoke and mirrors.” —Anonymous
