You don’t need to break the bank to find a beautiful wedding dress. We’ve tracked down eight budget-friendly gowns that are just as special as those that come with quadruple digit price tags. We even found one that’s modeled after the bejeweled gown Kate Middleton wore to her wedding reception! Whether you’re into flowing chiffon or structured taffeta, take comfort in the fact that you can afford the dress of your dreams, even when you’re on a budget.
Fall is one of our favourite seasons, and not just for the fashion, but for all the hearty meals and delicious seasonal fruits–apples, pies, figs, to name a few. For those of you tying the knot during the autumnal months, why not wow guests with fall-inspired desserts? Here, we present 10 yummy crowd-pleasing treats that your friends and fam will devour in minutes.
This genius proposal video was just posted on YouTube a few days ago and it’s already surpassed the 100,000 viewers mark. Give it a few more days and, there’s no doubt in our minds that it will go viral and pass the 1 million viewers record. And, why not? It’s got the makings of the perfect engagement story: a romantic location (in Disney) coupled with an amazing song in the background (Bruno Mars’ ‘Marry You’). The first part shows Jamin (the groom-to-be) explaining his whole idea/concept to the world. But, to see the magic in action, scroll straight to the 1:25 mark–trust us you won’t want to miss this!
