In a perfect world, weddings would be stress-free:  all details would magically fall into place as you relaxed with family, friends, and your groom.  Unfortunately, ours is not a perfect world; but with this week's Bridal Booty, all your guests will think you've come a little closer to finding it!  This three-piece makeup set from Skindinävia is specially formulated for your bridal needs; originally designed to outlast the high-stress conditions of Hollywood sets, the company's commitment to fresh-looking makeup routinely endures 16-hour days and has gained approval from ove


As well as you know your fiancé--and, of course, vice versa--there are always new things to learn, and those little surprises that make each one of us unique keep marriage fun and interesting through all the years to come. As you pledge to spend the rest of your lives discovering the rest of each other, take inspiration from the unknown (and the spirit of the season!) with a masquerade theme for your big day. Gilded or bejeweled, colorful or muted, masks can be customized to fit your decor and personality to a tee.


Halloween is almost here, so why not indulge your inner child with this sweet treat? Candy corn is a notorious Halloween candy, as well as an aesthetically pleasing one, with bold hues of yellow and orange. Incorporate these fall colors into your wedding color palette or use them sparingly for an added pop of autumnal ambiance.


Nestled among a beautiful vineyard, this one-of-a-kind Hamptons venue offers their entire facility to you so as to make sure that their service is unsurpassed.

Hosting only one reception at a time is something that The Vineyards takes pride in and ensures that no detail is overlooked.

Located on the North Fork of Long Island, The Vineyards offers deluxe services and amenities in order to make your day as special as you are.


What better way to freshen up a classic fall color than to set it off with a pop of the unexpected? Go in a unique (and gorgeous!) new direction by pairing deep burgundy with cool mint for your wedding decor. Although not your average matrimonial shades, the two are in the same family of hues and work despite their contrast, creating striking table bouquets and invitations alike. Mismatched vintage bottles make interesting and colorful flower vases--go on a scavenger hunt for the perfect collection as a fun DIY project you and your fiancé can share!

Pops of pink added a touch of romance to the Malibu, California wedding of April and Eric. The rustic feel of the Calamigos Ranch is what first inspired the theme of their wedding, which meshed perfectly with the naturally simple yet beautiful backdrop that the Ranch provides.

After planning for eighteen months, April's favorite moment of the day was the exhilaration of the ceremony. "I was so giddy with excitement that I was bouncing up and down during our vows!" she said.
