Africa meets North America at this gorgeous Ghanaian wedding reception in Maryland

Billy and Jenny actually got married in Ghana a few years ago, but between Billy living in Ghana and Jenny getting her PhD, there wasn’t much time to celebrate here in the States. Their wedding celebration day changed all of that. They invited a few of their closest friends and family here in the U.S. to the beautiful Glenview Mansion in Rockville for dinner, photos, art gallery views, and dancing. Just wait until you see Jenny's fab multicolored dress!

These prom dresses can be the affordable alternative wedding dresses of your dreams

Prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, ballgowns, formal dresses… all of these terms can totally mean WEDDING DRESSES. Plus, they're almost all sub-$500 which means they're alternative wedding dresses on a budget. I went a-scouring the prom and bridesmaids sections to see what steals and deals I could find in pinks, metallics, whites, creams, florals, and so many more. Y'all know you can wear white, but don't discount the rest of the rainbow. Those blush sequins need someone to wear 'em, right? I guess I'll just have to take one for the team and wear them all. It'll be hard, but I'll try to manage.

Go beat me to them and find that prom dress turned wedding dress right now…

We're mad as hatters for this Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding in Greece

Konstantina rocked a colorful polka dot wedding dress, light blue wedding shoes, and a super colorful bouquet that channeled Alice in Wonderland. If that's not enough to get you all in, I don't know what will. But we're going to try! The groom, Giannis, took the reins in planning the Alice in Wonderland-themed wedding down to the ideas, photos, and details. They were going for magical over childish, and totally succeeded.

The centerpieces were hats, characters, and candies in lieu of flowers. There were pastel cupcakes, a topsy-turvy cake, "drink me" bottles, clocks, Cheshire Cats, and a rockin' time all around at this wedding in Thessaloniki, Greece.
