    Photo courtesy of bridesmaiddressaleca Dear Heather, I need to find navy, knee-length, one-shoulder bridesmaid dresses. The catch - under $100 and something that stores carry. My maid of honor lives out of state and wants to try it on before she buys, and I totally agree! I've heard too many horror stories of online dresses not fitting right! Help me, please!

    Angela and Jay had their beautiful wedding in January of this year, incorporating meaningful locations, the support of their community, and some Arizona flair. Seriously, how cute are these cactus favors?

    Brides Against Breast Cancer is an amazing charity that we've partnered with--they accept new and used gown donations, which they then send on roadshows across the country to sell to brides like you for an average price of $600! They also do "Run and Renew" 5K events as fundraisers, and every year, they raise around a million dollars for those impacted by cancer. Incredible, no?…

I had never even been dress shopping with anyone before (and I've been in quite a few weddings), so it was definitely a little overwhelming. Having seen far too many episodes of Say Yes the Dress, I planned my entourage very…

    After the wedding is all said and done, photos are one of the few things you walk away with, so it only makes sense that you'll want to have those babies in a beautiful album on the coffee table, ready for anyone who happens over to your home to ogle. Unfortunately, lots of couples end up with sticker shock when they price out said albums.…

    A reader wrote in recently that she'd been struggling to find the perfect dress...until she saw it walk down the carpet at the Golden Globes on Sarah Hyland. ¬†Perfect, except for the color and the couture pricetag, that is. Let's see what we can do--we're looking for something with a bateau neckline, a dropped waist, and some frothy goodness at the bottom! CAN'T AFFORD IT…
