While our main focus in school was to bring home a report card full of A’s, it’s all about the C’s when it comes to choosing a girl’s best friend. Enter Stage Right: zee diamond!
Often imitated but never duplicated, every girl is capable of channeling her inner Marilyn and belting out that “a kiss on the hand may be quite continental,” but many don’t have the slightest idea why “diamond’s are a girl’s best friend” nor can they even begin to recognize what goes into distinguishing their worth…
But stick with me, ladies, while I slice through the Four C’s of the Diamond Kingdom - Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat – and educate you on how to find your perfect match… to go with your already perfect mate :)

A diamond’s cut is perhaps the most recognizable “C” for the untrained eye to identify. Heck, even my Mister knew the difference between cuts, and he tends to stray away from all things girly in nature. For seriuos, the man still considers manks (man tanks) and gym shorts a fashion statement. Oy vey!
Because a diamond’s cut is distinguished by the facet proportions on its surface, most people have the ability to tell the difference from one cut to the next. It’s important to note, however, that while the cut directly correlates to the shape, it most honestly refers to the symmetry, portion and polish of the design guide it’s following.
According to Tiffany & Co., there is a sacrifice that comes when a stone is cut to maximize brilliance. In order to achieve the most brilliant cut possible, size is often lost in the transition. Therefore, it’s key to only purchase diamonds that are cut for brilliance and not size. This will ensure you’re getting the highest quality diamond possible.
*Please Note: Below is a chart showing the different shapes varying cuts can create, not the guidelines used to determine brilliance, but I consider it helpful nonetheless :)

You may find yourself asking: Color? What color does a ‘clear’ diamond have? And my response to you would be an emphatic: Exactly! In the case of most engagement and wedding bands, the diamond color should be treated under the theory of less is more. In order for diamonds to be considered perfect, they must be free and clear from any color whatsoever. Ideally, we’re looking for a face of total transparency, which as its name ensues, is incredibly hard to find.
RARELY does nature produce diamonds that are both chemically pure, as well as structurally perfect; so, many contain hints and tints of yellow. The color grade scale on which diamonds are rated (shown below) measures the saturation levels of yellow found in imperfect diamonds. The higher the saturation, the lower the grade. While this is generally undetectable to the naked eye, the color of a diamond can dramatically affect its price by hundreds, even thousands of dollars.
Therefore, this is the one most people “cheat” on when they’re willing to sacrifice quality for quantity.
*Please Note: In the case of some diamonds (ie. the Hope Diamond and those displayed in the Aurora Pyramid Collection), the intensity of color can add to a diamond’s value. Depending on the coloration, saturation and rarity of a diamond, the price can be significantly increased. Red diamonds are the rarest, and therefore, the most expensive.

In the case of diamonds, clarity measures a stone’s level of flawlessness, which like skin, is best flaunted to the public imperfection and blemish free. Essentially all diamonds have some type of imperfection or inclusion – as their called in the diamond world; it’s just some are less noticeable than others.
In order for a diamond to be considered “flawless,” it can’t show any type of external imperfections under the power of 10x magnification, which is really, REALLY difficult to achieve! Thus, reflecting in a much higher price tag.
I mean honestly, think of your skin. Now, think of your skin in HD. Can we say “Yikes!” Heck, even Victoria’s Secret models show cellulite if the TV’s large enough and vision’s clear enough; so, before you write off Aphrodite as your diamond option… remember, somewhere slightly lower on the pay grade is a Giselle Bünchen. And that, my friends, ain’t so bad :)

The final “C” is carat and lays weight to the famous question, “Does size matter?” The answer: Yes, yes it does :) The weight of each diamond is measured in carats and when compared to other diamonds of equal quality, the larger diamond will win every time. Despite popular belief, however, carat weight alone cannot determine the price of a diamond.
Unfortunately, since it’s what most people see first, many go to it as the main measurement in a diamond’s status. But I would urge you all not to do this! When choosing your diamond, always, always, always try follow the number one rule of thumb and choose QUALITY over QUANTITY.

But no matter what, just remember, “Square cut or pear shaped, these rocks don’t lose their shape! [Because] Diamonds are a girl’s best friend!” Boop, boop, be doop! Ooh!

Of course, I’m a fan of just about a schmillion different, wedding day trends, but birdcage veils are perhaps at the top of my list. Not only do they add a hint of modern day vintage to every bride they dress, but they are also a great way to bring DIY style to the forefront of your wedding day celebration.
Because of their versatility and famed support from celebrities like Drew Barrymore and Katherine Heigl, birdcage veils offer brides several styling options while creating a low maintenance way to capture incredible shots. Armed with sleek sophistication and vintage inspired designs, these timeless treasures will look ahhh to the mazing at every moment from saying your vows to dancing the night away without all the bulk or hassle of a traditional, formal veil.
Most local – as well as online craft stores like michaels.com and joann.com – will have all the supplies you’ll need to create your very own, one of a kind veil, and at super low prices. (cont’d below)

Whether you choose to use turn out your veil with feathers, fake furs, pearls or rhinestones, you’re sure to have something that will make a statement without ever saying a word. And because birdcage veils offer the bride the ability to have a haute couture look without a haute couture price, they’re easily one of the most successful and accessible wedding day accessories available.
From simple and elegant styles, accented with dainty, crystal bobby pins to over-the-top, feathered frocks, fashioned with bejewled, silk flowers and tons of bling, there’s easily a birdcage veil out there to fit every bride’s personality.
And even though their easy enough to craft yourself, these fun and sometimes feathered fashions can also be purchased on several sites, including etsy.com and birdcageveils.com. Simply find your style and run for the hills, down the aisle or across the dance floor with it! For serious, you won’t be sorry… I mean just look at these beauts!

For months, brides-to-be have been told that 2010 weddings are all about the blues! And in Bride’s latest issue to hit newsstands (April 2010), they decided to focus on one of our favorite Blue’s Brothers – turquoise! Love love love it!
With its varying shades swimming from broad ocean blues to deep sea greens, it’s no wonder why turquoise has become a preferred choice amongst this year’s hottest weddings. Because turquoise has a chameleon-like presence, altering from warm and romantic to cool and eclectic, it can be paired with a number of shades to create just about any atmosphere. And when it’s paired with the right accent shade, turquoise has the ability to be as diverse as the 2010 Winter Olympics. (Yeah, I took it there.)
Bride’s paired it with four completely different hues for four completely different looks, but what I’m dying to know is which one you like best! So, be sure to leave your pick (or new pairing) below :)
Romance @ a Glance: Seen as a more romantic coupling, turquoise and silver complement each other beautifully. By pairing this bold color with a calm neutral, this contrasting combination will give your wedding day a quixotic feel from the first hairdo updo to the (let’s dance the) last dance!
Popped Collar meets White Collar: Talk about a pop of prep-tastic magic! Viewed as the scholarly solution to wedding day whimsy, these two shades are the game, set and match of truly vibrant settings. The coolness of turquoise mingles amazingly with the chic-ness of cherry, making them ideal for spring or outdoor celebrations!
A Tart Taste of Trend: As a journalist, I feel like it is my duty to offer up my bias on this one… There’s just something about chartreuse I could never quite understand. I mean, is it green? Is it yellow? Is it supposed to be mossy and muted or limey and loud? These are things we may never know, but what we do know is that when paired with turquoise, chartreuse will trend up just about any bride-to-be’s big day! If it comes off too trendy for the traditional bride, you can always calm it down by bringing in a sleek neutral like black, sand or cream to help.
As Seen in Nature: Bride’s magazine calls it “natural,” but I call it nautical! This sea friendly duo will be the epitome of picturesque for your destination or beach themed wedding. The calming effects of the serene blues will be the perfect pallet for all newlyweds looking to create a one of a kind look for a one of a kind love.

The wedding planner in all of us will inevitably come across things we like; things we love; thing we REALLY love; things we could do without; things EVERYONE could do without; things that rock; things that roll (right back where they came from); and my personal fave… things that become an OBSESSION.
Ladies, please welcome my newest obsession: Flowerless Bouquets! From the minute I came across this trend on Princess Lasertron – ran by Megan Hunt: bridal planner extraordinaire and certifiable creative genius – I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for their quirky combination of vintage frock, trend appeal and DIY divinity! For cereal, they’re ooh la la personified, and because most nonfloral bouquets can cut back on the fertilizers and pollutants pumped into Mother Earth to replenish flowers over and over again, they’re arguably the most eco-chic substitute there is! (cont’d below)

I’m telling you, it’s a win / win for everyone! While Princess Lasertron’s nonfloral bouquets focus on the distinctive use of felt fabrics and vintage buttons, the options for flowerless bouquets are almost endless… just imagine it, won’t you… (insert dreamy pan out sequence here)…
I can see it now… seashells and sand dollars for dynamic destination weddings… butterflies and berries for summer’s finest nuptials… pine cones and colored leaves for amazing autumnal ”I do’s”… bedazzled ornaments and tinsel for weddings intent on being the holly’est and jolly’est… all kinds of bright colored candies for celebrations near and dear to Halloween or Valentine’s day… rolled up, satin neck ties for weddings worthy of the red carpet… (my brain could burst from excitement!)… you could even use parasols and peacock feathers and brooches (Oh my!)
I mean, the list goes on and on people!! Not only is the creativity level for blossomless bouquets through the roof, but the do-it-yourself and keepsake potential for such creations is limitless! Just take a look below to see what I mean and (hopefully) find some inspiration! (Photos courtesy of princesslasertron.com, bellzandwhistlez.com, fantasyfloraldesigns.com and Google Images)
Extra, Extra! And for those of you who find yourselves on the more traditional side of the bridal fence and can’t imagine walking down the aisle with anything but the most brilliant bouquet of flowers money can buy… I would urge you to check out some of these creations HandmadePaperFlowers.com came up with! All of these are crafted of paper, but look as real, as real can be! Love :)

Too bad I did this to myself - haha! (photo courtesy of Jessika Feltz Photography)
Let’s face it, unflattering photos of ourselves are everywhere. Whether its the angle they were taken from, the poor lighting they were captured in or the unattractive, caught-off-guard, double chin pose we did to ourselves… we’ve all been haunted by heinous photos that continue to resurface time and time again. <siiiiiighhhh> Why?
And no time is a worse time for our not-so-hot-face-for-radio moments than on our wedding day. So, what’s a girl to do when these inevitable photos from our supposed prettiest day ever begin to rear their ugly heads (pun intended)?? The same thing the staaahhhs do, daahhhhling… airbrush it, baby!
That’s right, picnik.com is an online photo editing service that allows you Photoshop yourself to sheer perfection. For cereal, it’s ideal for people who A) can’t afford their own personal, super model editor or Adobe Photo Suite – who can?!!? or B) individuals looking to brush up their artistic skills.
It provides the tools to do everything from turning your “too hot from dancing” sweaty forehead into an elegant, bridal glow to adding fun text to the shot of you and your bridesmaids getting down! It über fun, no matter what skill level; so, go ahead and start editing today! After all, isn’t it time for us to put our prettiest faces forward?

YOWZAS! Talk about making a statement from floor to ceiling… floating or hanging wedding décor is one way to get more bang for your buck! Because they offer a means to create more levels of dimension throughout your entire reception hall, you’ll easily streeeetch your real estate dollar to its fullest potential by filling in areas that otherwise would be lost… And who doesn’t love that??
After perusing through several images on BeautifulBlooms.com, I couldn’t help but be inspired by these float-tastic furnishings and immediately set off on a journey to discover more. (Of course by “journey,” I mean manic mouse clicking and by “discover,” I mean whatever Google Images wanted to show me… but alas, I digress.) I went absolutely Lady GaGa for the one of a kind, optical illusions they create and fell even deeper in love when I realized their practicality.
Not only do these suspended superstars create an allstar look, but they also offer brides and grooms a way to decorate their tables without blocking the view of their guests. Because big, bold centerpieces can create such big, bold WOW factors, so many brides are drawn to them… but they don’t always create the most rational way for your guests – seated in between and across from them – to communicate to others or worse yet… see you! Blasphemy!
Hence, only furthering the appeal of hovering centerpieces! By cutting out the middle “man” altogether and suspending the décor, you can be as big and bold as you want without blocking the view of your guests! It’s a win / win for everyone!
Just be sure to go over things with your venue. Since some of these will more than likely need more planning to accomplish, you should definitely work with your reception hall vendor and / or coordinator to make sure they go off without a hitch!
And if you’ve found yourself already booked to venue that doesn’t allow or have a means to hang things, there are still several options for you to create this look. One, consider using super tall, thin vases and placing floral or “pom pom” styled arrangements on the tops only. This will ensure you’ll get the height you want with minimal to no distractions of your guests… Or I like the idea of using large, elevated glass cylinders. You can fill them to the top with water, creating the illusion of “clear” space, and crowning them with your favorite flower buds, floating candles or fiber optics.

Now, here’s a story that I fell absolutely head over heels in Louvre with… Sarah Killen – a small town, unemployed bride-to-be from rural Michigan – became an instant, overnight success when Conan O’Brien selected her from obscurity to be his first “followee” on Twitter. Last Friday at 3:55pm, O’Brien tweeted, “I’ve decided to follow someone random. She likes peanut butter and gummy dinosaurs. Sarah Killen, your life is about to change.” (Haha! Conan is a comical genius!)
And change it did.
According to reports, Sarah Killen – whose Twitter tag is LovelyButton – went from having a scantily clad group of three followers to a staggering list of over 20,000 in less than a week! For all you math gurus out three, that’s like gaining 150 friends per minute… n.u.t.s. But this new famed popularity crown is merely the tip of the ahhhh to the mazing iceberg that floated into Killen’s life.
Not only did this lucky lady gain the acknowledgement of one of comedy’s finest instruments and 20,000 (so far) others, but she also received a brand new iMac, several donations to her Susan G. Komen: Race for the Cure charity, a New York designer wedding gown AND wine for the nuptials… which I can’t say makes much legal sense for a not quite of age, 19 year old soon-to-be-Mrs. to receive… soooo, she should probably just forward that onto me: the easily over 21, former bride who would gladly toast her love at every “Cheers!”
Anyhoot, I seem to have wandered off course. Soory aboot dat. Bottom line, I would say that for a mere week’s worth of marinating, she has done quite well for herself, especially after you consider the fact that Killen and her fiancé, 21 year old John Slowik, only had a 30 dollar hollar saved for their upcoming, autumnal wedding… that’s right, only $30.
Seems to me, that this future bride-to-be just might get the dream come true… and all because of one man’s tweet. Absolutely increds! I love how the world can work! I wish you, Ms. Killen, all the happiness in the world and cheers to many, MANY tweetastic years of marital bliss!
Post Thought for Sir O’Brien: Conan, you should probably do yourself a favor and follow WeddingXpert (Marilyn’s Keepsakes Twitter page)… then, a girl like Ms. Killen would totally be in the know for her September wedding, and the rest of the world could know the awesomeness that is MK :)… Plus, I technically just knighted you with that ”Sir O’Brien” title; sooooo, you kind of owe me. Hehe!

At the risk of coming off totally unoriginal, today’s blog post is completely dedicated to others! I came across this Website a few weeks back where brides – over the course of the past few years – have been asked to submit their unique wedding ideas… so imagine my delight when such a simple theory developed into such intricate results!
I was losin’ it as I read through some of the more “colorful” options, but I couldn’t help but applaud the sheer genius of others! Every wedding day has potential to get Army and be all that it can be; so, why not see what others did for greatness and make it your own? Below are some of my favorite responses to emerge from ourmarriage.com, but please feel free to add to this list by leaving your unique idea here! I always love hearing from you :)
Whenever we would go to a wedding we always are wondering who the people in the bridal party are and what is their relation to the bride and groom. So at our wedding, in the program we listed each person in our wedding party with a little paragraph on how we know this person and a little fun tidbit and or why they are special to us. It was nice for them to read and gave our guests a special insight of our friends and family and didn’t leave them guessing who was who!
I wanted to do something different for the centerpieces at my reception tables, so I decided to make my own candles. I used the dried flower petals that I had been saving from all of the flowers my fiancée had given me from the time we started dating. I thought that they were a true testament of how our relationship had grown, there were the first flowers he had ever given me, I love you, I’m Sorry, Get Well, thinking of You, Valentine’s Day, and anniversary flowers, all the way up to the purple roses he gave me when he asked me to marry him. They turned out beautifully and everyone loved them!
I wanted a good picture of my dad walking me down the aisle. Instead a picture of our “backs”, we took a few steps, stopped, turned around and the photographer got a great picture of our faces. It’s the most cherished picture of me and my dad.
I’ve noticed at wedding receptions that the younger guests are usually bored. So, for my wedding reception, I had a special “children’s table” set up. There were balloons tied to every chair and “busy packets” at every place setting. The busy packets contained coloring books and crayons, small puzzles, activity books and blank paper. The kids were all together so they didn’t have to listen to boring grown up conversation and they had things to keep them busy. We made a point of visiting the table several times during the reception. It was a party for them and a great celebration for us!
[Our guests] are requested to bring along a small Christmas ornament (1/per family) from their personal collections. The purpose of this is to remember all of our friends who came to our wedding. We will hang up all the little ornaments they gave to us on our tree at Christmas.
My fiancée and I absolutely hate the idea of the garter and bouquet toss. So we have decided to do a variation on the theme. Instead of tossing the bouquet, we are going to give a single flower to every single women at the reception. The flower will be a duplicate of one of the flowers in my bouquet. The flower will have a poem pinned to it as well as wishes for love, success and health. There is no reason that only one girl should have all of the fun, this way every single women is given well wishes.
This isn’t my idea – I was at a wedding the other weekend where this was done and I thought it was very nice! During the ceremony a photographer and a videographer photographed and videoe’d the wedding, as usual. At the reception, which took place right after the wedding (cocktails in between right outside the large room for the reception in between wedding and reception), a presentation was shown on a screen via projector. The presentation started out with photos and such of the bride starting with baby photos and ending with a recent photo. Then the same was done with the groom. They then showed the engagement photo. But then this is where the very nice thing took place: they then showed photos and video footage from their wedding which must have been at the most only an hour and a half earlier – most likely less!! It was a great surprise to all the guests, and it was super because the selected clips from during the ceremony after the procession were taken from a view that showed the bride and groom’s faces so we all got to see the important parts of the wedding from a view nobody gets to see otherwise! It was a fantastic presentation, set to music and all, too, of course. I recommend this idea!!
Instead of rice, bubbles, or anything else that people throw at the bride and groom. The wedding party should burn sparklers when the bride and groom are having their first dance. The lights are dim and the moment is so special, and sparklers are such a different touch. Or, you can get all the guests to burn one when they are leaving at the end. Whatever works.
We are asking our guest to send us their favorite recipes with their RSVP’s. We are then going to make cookbooks to give to our guest as favors. It’s really inexpensive and it’s nice to have a cookbook with both our families’ recipes. You can have the cookbook go with your theme or colors. We are binding ours together with cover coordinating with our invitations.

Who doesn’t love a romantic comedy? Even my Mister has to admit despite all the ”man laws” telling him not to… that romantic comedies are the ultimate in “feel good” fun! I like to compare being a bride to being like a little kid on Christmas Eve… the anticipation is half the fun!
I say relish in watching movies and letting people ooh and aww over you. After all, you’re only a bride once! And watching romantic comedies will easily help you stay in that wedding spirit and maybe even give you some ideas! Below are 15 of romantic comedy’s finest plotted around (drum roll please)… WEDDINGS! Enjoy!
Okay, seriously, this one’s the BEST! Humorously combining the outrageous nature of bringing two families together as well as the joy true love can bring, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is a movie that is fun for all!
A college favorite, this special treat was a go-to feature for my best friend (waddd up, Bre!) and me our freshman year of college. Men can love it because of Jennifer Lopez; while us ladies can feast on some serious man candy in Matthew McConaughey. Delight!
This is one movie that I could watch from beginning to end, over and over again and never get tired of it. From the goofball characters to the heart-tugging plot, this is one wedding movie that will never go out of style!
And speaking of classics, this is one of the greatest! I can remember seeing this film as a kid and laughing my head off… but what was even more wonderful was watching it again as an adult and repeating the laughter all over again. The funny thing is, as I know my humor has changed through the years, I know I wasn’t laughing at the same things. There’s no way I could’ve understood all the funny parts :)
Fair warning, you have to get through some serious rough patches before you can get to the happy ending, but like all good things in life, it just takes time. Be sure to watch this one with girlfriends!
Anyone care for a sing-a-long? Is so, look no further than this Oscar winning classic! Set in rural Oregon in 1850, this feature film has it all! From singing and dancing to adventure and comedy, you’ll be glad to watch this one again and again!
If raunchy humor doesn’t bother you, then you should most def check out this treat! As the third film in the American Pie series, this crazed wedding film may contain a bit more bawdy one liners, but it still deals with the concerns that stress every bride… and who can’t appreciate that?
Love love love this one! I know it’s hard for some to see Julia Roberts lose, but what person can’t relate to the tagline of the film: Julianne fell in love with her best friend the he decided to marry someone else?? I mean, come on! We all want what we can’t have!
Here we go again!! My My! (Yeah, yeah… don’t act like you don’t sing it every time you hear it too! Hehe!) For cereal, while I can’t help but LOOOVE musicals, I will say that anyone who’s not a fan of ABBA should probably stay away from this treat… everyone else… join in the chorus!
Talk about bridal insanity! This kitschy number has more plot twists, dips and funness than you’ll know what to do with! So, sit back, relax and enjoy!
Okay, I’ll admit it… I love love love Audrey Hepburn! Arguably one of the most pristine faces ever to grave the silver screen, this drop dead gorgeous lady is ahhhhmazing in Funny Face! Not only is it a love story for the ages, but part of the movie is set in Paris!! Ooh la la! Za City of Lights!
While this is not your typical fall in love / happy ending romantic comedy, it does focus on one of the greatest bonds a bride will ever have… the one to her maid of honor! So, grab your BFF and enjoy!
What can I say? I’m a sucker for old movies… and this one is no different! This double Oscar winner features two of Western’s favorite people: John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara. The chemistry these two have is undeniable, and anyone on looking is sure to enjoy it!
Yep, yet another classic tale of a “always a bridesmaid, never a bride” getting her shot at love… and who could ever resist an underdog story??
I still can’t believe the first time I saw this movie, I was still in high school. Siiiighhhh, memories. This super fun film has all the ingredients for greatness with an overbearing father, obsessed wedding planner, a bride with a secret and families coming together from across the world… love it!

Brit's got the Golden Ticket, and so could you! (Photo Courtesy of thehollywoodgossip.com)
I don’t even care how big of a nerd my sheer and utter excitement for the following news makes me… because the minute my friend (holllllerrr, Linds!) told me about this new contest, I was instantaneously stoked! And we’re not talking semi / half-way-there stoked. We’re talking full on, LA luvin’, surfboard floppin’, missing member of Laguna Beach stoked! (Haha, who remembers how many times that ‘cast’ said it?? Classic.)
Anyhoot… according to reports from USA Today, the Nestle-owned Wonka candy brand is bringing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to life and resurrecting real life ‘Golden Tickets!!!!’… Pause for effect… Can you even believs it!?!? Talk about the world’s biggest OMG evs! We all have the chance to frolic about with our grandpas singing, “We’ve got the golden ticket! (Ho!) We’ve got the golden tiiiiiiicket!”
Now, before you start to ask what any of my girlish excitement and Wonka bars have to do with adult weddings and dieting brides, I should probably inform you all of the prizes. Ten grand prize, Golden Ticket winners will really feel blessed when they (+3 of their nearest and dearest) receive a trip around the world, including $12,500 spending money!!! I mean, seriously, make the +3 a +1 and talk about the honeymoon of a lifetime… not to mention the story of a lifetime…
“Where did you go on your honeymoon?”
“Oh you know.” (shrugs soldiers) “Anywhere this bad boy… (whips out golden ticket from back pocket) could take me!”
“Which basically means a trip around the world… boo yeah!”
Yep, sounds like perfection. So, who cares if you have to gain a couple pounds in chocolate to gain the honeymoon of a lifetime?? In the end – as long as you win, that is – it would TOTALLY be worth it! Heck, even if you don’t win, you’re still eating chocolate; so, technically, it’s a win/win all around!
