You (and your wedding crew!) needs to see these nature-themed jewelry gifts

I featured some gorgeous and whimsical animal rings and jewelry over on Offbeat Home & Life today that just screamed wedding party gifts. Which of your wedding party would NOT want to rock a frog prince ring, a red panda ring, or a gorgeous enamel floral bracelet?

This dancer bride cast her bridesmaids in a bachelorette party music video

In “bachelorette parties we could never dream of having” news, bride Jana B. managed to craft a full-scale DANCE MUSIC VIDEO with her bridesmaids. Caveat: Jana is a professional dancer and her crew (from dancers to dentists!) is clearly willing and able to pull this off. Could most of us do it, too? Hell no. Is it fun to watch? Hell yes…

"Every wedding speech ever": Will you be seeing any of these stereotypes giving speeches at your wedding?

“Every wedding speech ever”: Will any of these stereotypes show up in your wedding toasts?

College Humor recently took on the task of skewering ye olde wedding toast. From your long-winded bestie to your cranky-about-paying dad to your emotional mother of the groom, no typical toastmaster was spared in this parody.

Clearly not all of us will be dealing with these stereotypes at the reception or pre-wedding parties, but certainly we can all use a good chuckle about the dreaded task of making a speech, right?

When your wedding photographer goes mid-orbit to get that epic shot

We spied this high-flying shot by Ashley Fisher Photography of her seriously committed second shooter Ray Prop going full 747 to catch a Herculean shot of the groomsmen. That’s one solid way to get real reactions from your subjects!

I'm nonbinary with an non-accepting family: should I be in my sister's wedding?

I’m nonbinary with a non-accepting family: should I be a bridesmaid in my sister’s wedding?

>My sister has asked me to a bridesmaid. I’m deeply estranged from the majority of my extended relatives. She’s turning this wedding into a family reunion (300+ guests). I thought I had enough to worry about with being nonbinary and potentially needing to deal with gender dysphoria on the day, but many of these relatives are horrendously bigoted as well. Part of me wants to say fuck it and be outrageously myself as a nonbinary bridesmaid… but my anxious self fears for my safety. I’m not out to everyone.Should I ask to be demoted from bridesmaid to “regular guest” status so I can have full choice over what I wear?

Is my slacker wedding party dropping the ball?

Are my slacker bridesmaids dropping the ball or is it me?

I am feeling overwhelmed, angry, sad, and just not looking forward to my wedding. It has been nothing but pulling teeth for me to get literally everyone to do their part. I have gotten our parents and my fiancé to understand that they need to do their part, but my bridesmaids have been twiddling their thumbs.

Have I not been stressing the importance of these little things? How do I tell people I want them more active and to do their job without being a bridezilla?
