Why You Need Start Watching Four Weddings Canada

We know you’re knee-deep in booking caterers and considering florists, but we highly recommend you start taking some time out on Wednesday nights to watch Four Weddings Canada, the show that pits four brides against each other in a matrimonial showdown for a chance to win a dream honeymoon. Why? Quite simply: It’s hilarious. Need proof? You’ll find it in these Toronto Life recaps complete with “Bitch-O-Meters” and titles like “Your Wedding Sucks” and “Drunk Husband-Bride”. In each hour-long episode of the show, four diverse and opinionated brides attend each other’s weddings and then score them out of ten in four categories — venue, food, dress and overall experience. Toronto Life then takes the scrutiny one step further by rating each bride’s behaviour.

Four Weddings Canada probably won’t help you with the wedding planning process but it’s good for a laugh — and you’ll definitely take solace in the fact that there won’t be four strangers and a camera crew in attendance on your big day.

15 Ways to Make Your Groom (And His Entourage) Stand Out

Fashion & Beauty

There’s more to being a groom than showing up and wearing a nice suit. Your groom’s look is as important as yours on the big day, so have a theme in mind when accessorizing and styling the groom and groomsmen. Whether it’s a classic touch, like cufflinks and a silk tie, or something bolder, like suspenders and striped socks, we have a few ideas to have your husband-to-be looking his best.


18 Unique Ways To Work Balloons Into Your Wedding

If you’re looking to add an element of whimsy to your wedding forgo traditional floral arrangements and centrepieces and opt for balloon bouquets in your wedding colours. Use coloured balloons in place of bridal party bouquets and adorn each table with a unique bunch of balloons for a budget-friendly floral alternative. For playful photo-ops, include balloons in your engagement and post-ceremony photo shoots or have guests release balloons as you come out of your ceremony venue. If your reception venue lacks ceiling decor, let elegant balloons float up and have the strings hang down for a light and airy environment.
