Disposable cameras and Instagram are great, but not everyone wants the waste of a plastic camera body or the publicity of #YourWeddingHashtag. And sometimes waiting for the turnaround from your photog can be excruciating. Let’s be real, it’s pretty rad to cuddle up with your new spouse (OMG!) tired, a little tipsy and totally on a euphoric high and scroll through all of the amazingness you just experienced. We often hear the wedding day goes by in a blur, and it’s easy to miss out on those funtimez.

Enter: Ceremony app. Free to download for the reg version or a measly $4.99 for the pro version.

Ceremony is a place to capture and store all photo and video evidence of the love, the shenanigans and definitely Uncle Morty’s best dance moves. No battling with hyper-public social media (unless you want to, because you still can with Ceremony) and no waiting for film to be developed.

How’s it work?

  • Create an event, receive your private event code.
  • Invite your people
  • Your people take photos — either in-app or with whatever app they chose and then upload ’em to the Ceremony app
  • Pics and vids show up in your feed
  • Ogle the silliness

Ceremony-app-in-use

Super simple, right? Yeah, we thought so too. Ceremony also has some shiny extra features in the Pro version, like the ability to block your cousin’s boyf who has had just a few too many and keeps taking photos of the ground, or (with the pro version) the ability to customize your event code, download hi-res images or videos and download a zip file with all the goodies packed up tight. The app is private, free from data mining, advertising and creepers. And it’s pretty … which is awesome.

Head to the Apple App Store or Google Play store to download Ceremony for your wedding!

    Suit shopping is hard — take it from someone who shops A LOT. Let’s just get rid of the suits for work and wear T-shirts and jeans forever, #amirite? Well, certain occasions call for a fancy suit and a wedding is one of them. Whether your a groom, a groomsman or just need an inexpensive suit, the list below is just for you. Pick your style, pick your suit. Simple as that.

    The Guy You Always Trust
    Bonobo Foundation Suit

    Bonobos Foundation Cotton Suit, $450

    He always shows up on time. He remembers all your stories. And you’re not sure you’ve ever seen him lose his cool. He’s so put together, when he puts on a simple navy suit he looks better and more comfortable in it than most people do in pajamas. This is the most versatile option for just about any wedding or occasion. The details: Breathable 100% cotton in four color options with traditional notch lapels

    The Collegiate
    J Crew Ludlow wool suit

    J. Crew Ludlow Tweed Suit, $425

    Hey Smarty Pants. When someone asks about your outfit, just say, “Oh, this? It’s just my Donegal tweed suit. No big.” They’ll immediately wonder what your doctorate was in at Yale and where you’re hiding the Oxford Dictionary. This is a great one for rustic weddings or something between formal and informal. The details: Wool tweed, so best in the cooler months, and comes in three colors.

    Laid-back Jack

    Dessy Khaki Suit

    Classic Summer Suit by After Six at Dessy, $159

    This guy doesn’t even know what Xanax is. One time he took a melatonin to sleep on his plane ride to that one tiny exotic island you’ve never heard of. He invited you to go skydiving once — yeah right, dude. Just like that guy, this suit is at home on the beach or basking in the summer sun. The details: Khaki cotton. It’s a pretty classic fit, though it might be cut a little slim in the jacket. Avoid the flip flops, just this once (except in the sand).

    That Slick Motherfucker
    Combatant Gentlemen slim suit

    Combatant Gentleman, $160

    He wears a suit everyday because, you know, that’s what everyone does, right? People see him at work, on the street, at that really cool cafe and think, “Damn, he’s really got it together.” And this guy is smart, too, because this suit is appropriate for pretty much any occasion, all year long. Bonus, it’s hella inexpensive. The details: 100% Italian wool, cut in a slim fit. Pick your choice of 24 freaking colors and style options.

    Casanova

    Men's Wearhouse Three Piece Suit

    Men’s Wearhouse Pronto Uomo Platinum Black Pinstripe Suit, $399

    This guy is smooth AF. Like, they should just put this suit in the dictionary under the word “charm.” 50 Shades of Grey much? This suit needs no bondage accessories to look and feel sexy — it just IS. That’s how it goes with a three-piece suit, you look good no matter what. Add a pocket square or a lapel pin to be real pimp. The details: Comes in five dark shades of 100% wool. Notch lapel and side vent features.

    What kind of suit personality matches your favorite fella?

    After trying on the gray-toned dress at David's, I became obsessed with finding other gray dresses! I started searching Pinterest and Google, screen-shotting and pinning pictures left and right. In my search, gray led to blue. I was hooked. Of course, everything I was finding was a one-of-a-kind or couture, high-end -- aka pricey and hard to find. I thought it would be good to look at…

    I'm a huge fan of fall weddings. The air is a little crisper and longer length dresses are a little more en vogue as a result. Plus jewel tones and autumn affairs go together like cake and frosting, and I'm not complaining. In fact, this fall I'm coordinating a friend's wedding and she's rocking a gorgeous rose gold sequin gown while her bridesmaids will be…

    Photo: Andie Freeman Photography Dear Liz, My fiancé and I are in the very beginning of planning our wedding. Naturally, we started with the venue hunt. But now we have a small problem. I  found a beautiful venue, it barely needs decoration, and it's sooo unique. However, they  only have one exclusive caterer, and they don't impress me. With our budget we would only be able to afford a…

    Hello BABs and happy Thursday! Is it Thursday again already?! This summer has gone by so fast! School starts this week -- or has already started -- here in Northeast Ohio, and there's something about back-to-school that always reminds me of the movie Grease. Maybe it's because that's how the movie begins ... Anyway, the tail end of summer's soundtrack is always a Grease medley for me. (Ok now…

    I’ve always been a sucker for details. Little extras. Special additions. Something nice turns into something great with a little extra oomph and as I prepared to send out my formal wedding invitations, I needed that little something extra, so I armed myself with another calligraphy pen, some awesome vintage stamps I purchased on eBay and the sweetest little way to add an extra personal…

    It's less than two months to go 'til the wedding, and in my waking hours I am nothing but serene. Everything is progressing nicely, budget looks tight but good, and Mr Fiance and I are getting more and more excited about the big day. So why are my nights plagued by stress dreams? I know BAB has talked about wedding nightmares before (wedmares, anyone?), but I…

    We love Minted -- we've always loved Minted -- because they have stunningly amazing stationery. But when we got word through a little birdie (in the form of an email from Minted) that they were launching Print-It-Yourself wedding stationery, we kind of died a little (in a good way). Because, you guys, this super affordable option to get the gorgeous designs Minted offers up without spending…
