When it comes to the sartorial part of wedding planning, the dress tends to become the biggest preoccupation, requiring the most research, tough decision-making and painstaking fittings. But you should think just as hard about what to wear under that dream dress on your big day.

Plus, you’ve spent so much time and effort on your overall look, you want your undergarments to help flatter you just as

The 6 Biggest Mistakes to Avoid When Buying an Engagement Ring

Photo credit: www.people.com

De Beers was the first to link diamonds with engagements. During the Depression, in a campaign that would’ve made Don Draper proud, those advertising geniuses started running an ad pushing men to spend one month’s salary on a ring if they wanted to be “responsible,” by the 1980s, it jumped up to two months. These days, the rule of thumb that’s often referenced is that one should fork over at least three months’ salary when purchasing this piece of forever jewelry. That said, engagement rings are now procured in a myriad of ways—from reworking great-grandma’s diamond, to going splitsies, to

Here Comes The Naked Bride. Oh, Not So Naked Though

Chaste veils, modest gowns, tulle and layers of taffeta, relics of the Victorian times, seem to have gone with the wind with the modern bride. Marriage isn’t such a sacred rite apparently, again.

The flesh is all laid bare to feast on. Obviously, many brides are not turning to their mothers for inspiration. Celebrities and Instagram influencers are their style icons.
