This Bride Did a Stunning Solo Photo Shoot on the Day of Her Wedding After Calling It Off

This Bride Did a Stunning Solo Photo Shoot on the Day of Her Wedding After Calling It Off Chandley Brelsford did a solo photo shoot on the day of her wedding after calling it off. Now, the images have gone viral. Here's the story behind them.

She sourced her fabrics in Italy, and worked with her favorite local seamstress to perfect her own wedding dress . Just one day after the proposal, the two began planning. They already knew they wanted to host the wedding at Maya’s childhood home in Beit Yanai, Israel , where her mother still

“I specifically didn’t want anything too ‘quintessentially upstate’—no barrels, pickups, or mason jars!” says Lizzie Fortunato of her and Peter Asbill’s wedding at the Dutchess.

For women who take a temporary leave from the workforce to care for their children or family, returning can feel next to impossible. “I’ve had a lot of really well-meaning people tell me to quit looking,” Hagit Katzenelson, a programmer and mother, told one writer for the Harvard Business Review, “They’d say, ‘Come on, you’re banging your head against a closed door.’”

It certainly felt that way for Katzenelson at the time. Despite having an electrical engineering degree, an MBA and 14 years of experience in her field, she had to search for five long years for a job after taking a four-year break to take care of her three children. Katzenelson’s story isn’t an anomaly. 

This Bride Got a Wedding Redo After Losing 100 Pounds

This Bride Got a Wedding Redo After Losing 100 Pounds Cherie Judd's weight loss journey started as she dreamed of her perfect wedding after her boyfriend proposed. She turned to plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Zarrabi. The doctor removed more than 1 1/2 feet of excess skin. He also built her a new belly button. Now, two-and-a-half months after the surgery, she said, “I feel like a different person.” She added, “I feel 100 pounds lighter because I am. I feel like my fairy tale is coming true today.

A designer through and through, Lizzie knew she wanted to make her own dress after she found a fabric swatch at one of the embroidery houses she uses for In addition to her dress , Lizzie designed all of the jewelry for the wedding . “I wanted to wear earrings because I have short hair,” she explains.

“I would get into interviews,” programmer Abby Carrales told the San Francisco Chronicle earlier this year as she recounted her attempt to break back into the workforce, “It would always come down to myself and another candidate. When employers see a gap in a resume, they assume the person has left to have children and that their career would always play second fiddle to their primary-caregiver responsibility.”

Similar frustrations echo across forums, magazine articles and social studies, all aligning with the same narrative through line: If you leave to have kids, don’t expect the working world to welcome you back. Research backs these anecdotes. In February of 2018, one Harvard Business Review study found that stay-at-home moms were only half as likely to obtain a job interview as a person who was laid off. Researchers further wrote that, “Respondents viewed stay-at-home parents as less reliable, less deserving of a job and -- the biggest penalty -- less committed to work, compared with unemployed applicants.” 

Hailey Bieber's Wedding Earrings Might Look Simple, but They Actually Cost Six Figures

  Hailey Bieber's Wedding Earrings Might Look Simple, but They Actually Cost Six Figures Hailey Bieber married Justin while wearing Tiffany & Co. studs, which were made of platinum and diamonds and cost over $100,000.Although Mrs. Bieber's earrings looked fairly simple in some post-wedding photos shared by Justin, they were actually a platinum pair from Tiffany & Co. which included diamonds that were over 5 carats. According to a press release, those babies ring in at a cool $123,000 — so we really hope the bride kept excellent track of them when hitting the dance floor.

It’s a cold hiring landscape. However, some have celebrated “returnship” programs as the solution to returning mothers’s hiring woes, indicating that such initiatives can provide former stay-at-home parents the tools they need to break the ice -- partially, at least. 

Introducing Returnships

Returnship programs aren’t, strictly speaking, new. Goldman Sachs launched the first returnship initiative a little more than a decade ago; since then, 50-plus companies have opened their doors, including IBM, Johnson & Johnson and United Technologies. In April, Apple offered a 17-week return-to-work program for professionals who both took time away from work and have more than five years of professional experience. These programs are typically open to people who have left their industries for two or more years and last for a limited period -- usually between eight weeks and six months -- and are designed to provide networking and mentoring opportunities, help returnees refresh their professional skill set and give the company a chance to gauge whether the returnee is a long-term fit.

A Solution, or Just a Flawed Fix?

For both Katzenelson and Carrales, returnships were a lifeline, a means to climb out from the hiring sinkhole they had been struggling with for years. Both cited the returnships as stepping stones for getting back into their careers. Their stories provide hope to stay-at-home parents who want to return to work. And to be sure, all returnships offer participants the chance to update their resume and gain professional acceptance, even if they aren’t hired at the end of the program period. 

However, these programs are not without their flaws. While some returnships are paid, many are not. Others require the returnee to pay for their participation. Hiring, too, can vary widely. While Ford’s returnship program hired 98 percent of its enrollees, Goldman Sachs only accepted 1.9 percent. Both are on extreme and opposing ends of the hiring spectrum; research indicates that most programs hiring between 50-100 percent of their participants. 

Then there are the semantics. Should experienced moms fall under a subcategory of “interns”? For some, embarking on a “returnship” may mean accepting -- at least subconsciously -- that their skills are less valuable. As one writer protests in an article for Working Mother, “Companies like Goldman Sachs actually play on this perceived lack of expertise or skills. They promote the low self-confidence some people feel after being out of the workforce and use it to their advantage. Under the guise of helping people get up to speed and allowing employees to ‘see if it is the right fit,’ they get a no-risk trial and can fire you.”

This might not be entirely fair, especially given that these programs do help participants add to their professional networks and update their skills. However, the writer does have a point. While many programs don’t approach their participants as low-level, inexperienced or temporary staffers, the implication is baked into the title. I would argue that the assumption of inexpertise and the dismissal that the writer highlights is a symptom of a broader problem, one that returnships can only partially address, even as they reinforce it through nomenclature: the devaluing of and bias against mothers in the workforce.

Returnships are a halfway solution, but they don’t solve the underlying social problem mothers face in the workplace. Research has repeatedly shown that mothers who leave the workforce for an extended period to care for children -- or even simply have children -- face penalties in their career. One study conducted by the nonprofit thinktank Thirdway found that women’s wages decreased by an average of 4 percent for each child they had. Ironically, men’s wages increased by more than 6 percent when they had children. The gap between the genders remained even after researchers controlled for significant factors such as education, hours worked, experience and spousal incomes.

  This Bride's BFFs Surprised Her With A Gigantic Chicken Nugget Bouquet In The Middle Of Her Wedding This might be my dream wedding.The newlyweds, Adam and Blair Tyson, were gifted the bouquet of Tyson chicken nuggets (...get it?) during a bridesmaid’s toast. Blair's friend was giving a cheeky lil nod to her friend's new last name with the gesture, if you can tell from the below pics. And from the looks of it, the bride was more excited than the groom to take a bite out of this edible arrangement.

The bride happens to be the manager of a bridal salon and knew she wanted something a bit out-of-the-box for her own big day. She took the floral print of an Anna Maier gown and custom- designed a dress fit for a bridal fashionista. But the dress is only the beginning, and there's much more to see

A study published in the Journal of Applied Psychology may shed some light on the cause of the gap. Researchers wrote, “Mothers were expected to be less competent and were less likely to be kept in the running for advancement opportunities than were other female or male applicants who were applying for the same high-level managerial position.” The writers further explained that hiring managers expected mothers to adhere to overly “feminine” behavior stereotypes; female candidates were believed to be too soft, too focused on their home lives and not suited to the demands of a male-dominated workplace. 

With this, we can see that returnships aren’t a golden career ticket for stay-at-home moms; instead, they serve as a band-aid on the larger professional injury that social bias causes for women in the workplace. 

What Does This Mean for the Future?

I’m not suggesting that women call for an end to returnships, or even that they avoid them. Quite the opposite. I believe that we need to provide more resources for stay-at-home mothers in and beyond the workplace. We need to establish more apparent channels for re-entry, push for more flexible and family friendly policies in the workplace and create programs that acknowledge the skill set women already bring to the table instead of framing their re-entry as an “internship.”

Most of all, though, we need to turn our focus inward and face the unacknowledged bias that so often prevents women with families from returning to work. As one leader for the job listing company Apres put the matter, “It’s one thing to say you are going to hire women on the sidelines, it’s another thing to train your hiring managers to interview without bias toward the gap.”

Gender bias isn’t going to be something we can solve with a single training program or one push towards returnship expansion. But if those in the business world launch a cohesive effort to value, welcome and support women returning to work, we might be able to give mothers a fair shot in the interview room.
