Throughout history, it has become a tradition for a bride to wear a veil on her wedding day, and its symbolic meaning has developed from modesty to chastity into what we now assume a fashion accessory. Whether you choose to wear a veil or a headpiece (or none at all), make sure it suits your personality and enhances your wedding day style. Tip: Choose your veil or headpiece last. Pick your wedding gown first and your hairstyle second. For more veil styles we adore, check out our photo gallery.

Pantone revealed Emerald, “a lively, radiant, lush green,” as its Color of the Year for 2013 on Thursday.
“Green is the most abundant hue in nature–the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
Not only will Emerald translate into both fashion and home interiors but also weddings. We’ve already seen a few weddings incorporate this hue into their bridesmaid dresses, decor, tablescapes and florals, but will you incorporate this hue into your nuptials in 2013? Let us know in the poll below.

So the saying goes, “It’s bad luck to see your bride before the ceremony.” But couples these days are proving this myth wrong. A pre-executed first look before the ceremony allows for the bride and groom to have an allotted amount of private time together and take a few intimate photos. Whereas, during a traditional walk down the aisle, all eyes are on the bride, and your guests have their phones out ready to upload photos to a social media platform. What your guests don’t realize is that they are missing the groom’s spontaneous emotion as he sees his bride for the first time. It’s the best part! (Remember, you could have an unplugged wedding.) So, will the first time your groom sees you be before the wedding or as you walk down the aisle? Let us know in the poll below.

Brides look forward to their last night out as a single lady before their big day. But lately, brides have been opting out of the traditional bar hopping and switching to alternatives that get their heart pumping and sweat flowing. Sounds fun, right? Try a zumba class, a trip to a trapeze school, rock climbing, a ropes course or even train for a triathlon with your best friends. The truth is–you’ll barely be able to get out of bed the next morning, but without the hangover. What do you think? Let us know in the poll below.

Men always ponder more on how much an engagement ring will cost and tend to ponder less on the “Four C’s” of an engagement ring–cut, clarity, color and carat. Despite De Beers’ “A Diamond is Forever” 1947 campaign advocating that the average cost of an engagement ring is worth three months’ salary, the average man’s salary today is much higher than it was 30 years ago. The national average salary is $43,000. However, engagement rings are still pricey today as they were back then. The average cost of an engagement ring starts at $3,500. Do you think the average cost of an engagement ring is still worth three months’ salary? Let us know in the poll below.
