Before You Marry, Meld and Merge a Perfectly Accessorized Home

Some brides-to-be might find it hard to think beyond the intense planning that a wedding requires. But beyond the pomp and circumstance of the big day, it’s important to think ahead to mergers — not the corporate kind, but the merging of styles and décor to set up a home the bride and groom will both love.Forget Mars and Venus. Men are from the planet of mismatched furniture and floor coverings, while women accessorize their home with as much care and finesse as they do their wardrobes. Ideally, decorating a first home together begins with the furniture and accessories near and dear to both the bride and groom.But if a bride-to-be can’t live with her fiancé’s 1970s thrift store coffee table and orange bean bag chair, chances are he won’t be thrilled with her antique oak hope chest and ornately carved sleigh bed. Can these two conflicting schemes co-exist after the couple has crossed the threshold? Continue reading

6 Cold-Feet Thoughts That Are Actually Totally Normal

Cold feet are often taken as a no-good, very-bad sign that you should run as fast and far from your impending marriage as your feet (or car) will take you. But according to our experts, not all cold feet are signs your relationship is doomed. In fact, some, like these six, are perfectly normal.

  1. THAT GUY IS SUPER CUTE

Until now, you’ve only had eyes for your significant other. But as the wedding day approaches, you find yourself attracted to other people. “Marriage is a big step, and it’s normal to start noticing ways your single life is coming to an end,” says Lesli Doares, marriage coach and author of Blueprint For A Lasting Marriage, including noticing the men and women you can no longer date. But this cold-feet sign, Doares says, could be nothing more than primal instincts kicking in. “As my husband and I say to each other, ‘we’re married, not dead,'” she laughs. View our complete list of celebrity-approved honeymoon destinations.

EIGHT HABITS COUPLES THERAPISTS SAY ALWAYS END A MARRIAGE

And no, having an affair isn’t on this list.

TALKING TRASH BEHIND EACH OTHER’S BACKS.

It might sound like advice on avoiding high school drama, but speaking in a mean-spirited way about your partner when he’s not around—not just poking innocent fun at his Star Wars obsession—is a red flag that, surprisingly, is pretty common, says Cole. And it could have a lot to do with your friends. “Women may fall into this habit if they’re surrounded by people doing the same thing,” she says. “If your close group of girl friends are constantly talking poorly about their own husbands, it may feel more normal for you to chime in and say, ‘You think yours is bad? Listen to mine.'”

But in reality, it shines a light on a deeper issue, says Cole. “It shows a lack of respect for him and your connection, even if he never finds out,” she says, and starts a pattern of negative comparisons that can lead to even more criticism and contempt. Before you know it, your relationship is in a fast, downward spiral. Continue reading

Wedding Superstitions and Traditions

2Wedding Traditions and Superstitious Beliefs

Many of today’s common wedding traditions and superstitions actually originated in ancient myth and folklore when it was thought that engaged couples were particularly vulnerable to bad luck and evil spirits right before their wedding day.

Some traditions are commonplace, such as the bride not being seen in her wedding dress by the groom before the ceremony, others are unique and vary widely between cultures; all are thought to either ward off bad luck or surround the bride and groom with good luck… Continue reading

At-Home Wedding Reception Planning Secrets

23Sentimental? Yes. Simple? Not always. Here’s what you may not know about planning a backyard wedding celebration.

When it comes to weddings, there really is no place like home. Maybe your parents have an amazing lakeside house, or Grandma has that perfect country cottage. But odds are your childhood homestead isn’t quite prepared for 150 wedding guests, 75 cars, 20 waiters, 15 tables, and 1 happy couple. Although it may be more work (and more expensive) than you anticipated, you won’t regret saying your vows in the place that means the most to you. It’s all about being prepared for what it takes to throw a wedding in your very own backyard.

You Need Room to Say “I do”

Does your setup have enough space for all your guests? If not, you’ll have to start trimming the list. Don’t mistake overcrowded for cozy. If you plan to use a combination of indoor and outdoor space, know that if the weather takes a turn for the worst, everyone will need to fit indoors. Will there be enough space in, say, the living room, to set up white folding chairs with a wide enough aisle? The general rule is six to ten square-feet of floor space per guest for row-seating.
