If you're on the hunt for a designer wedding dress, consider shopping consignment sales or resale websites. You can find once-worn designer wedding gowns for up to half off on sites like OnceWed or Pre-Owned Wedding Dresses.
The maker community knows how much we love our pets, so this is a golden age for handmade dog tuxedos, dog dresses, dog bow ties and flower-ringed dog collars for your fur kid to wear to the wedding. The cuteness is blinding. Be sure you pick something your pet will actually keep on without freaking out. If your pup’s cooperative about clothing, doll her up. If your pet thinks dog clothes are for pups who’ve surrendered to their human’s silliest wishes, stick with a simple bow tie or floral collar.
Eleonore and Albin Bresson celebrated their nuptials at Prater, a public park in Vienna, where they and their guests rode roller coasters and carousels in between the ceremony and dinner. “When the carousel seats came down, they played the wedding march for us, and the crowd applauded — that was both embarrassing and adorable,” Eleonore says. The moments were captured by photographer David Zaoui. Wearing a wedding dress on roller coasters was exciting and even terrifying, says Eleonore, whose dress didn’t survive the day. “I'm not planning to use it again, so I'm actually happy that way,” she says.
“Select a venue that already dresses up for the holidays," Zazueta adds, "and work their decorations into your overall design. Think outside of the box and, instead of traditional lighted trees, opt for more creative ways of embracing the season, like a snow machine, perhaps, or a candy cane-inspired signature cocktail.” Floral design: Blooming Gallery.

With a picturesque backdrop, little is required to create a party setting. Many parks or outdoor venues provide picnic tables and long benches or chairs. To add glamorous touches to your picnic, cover the table with a colorful fabric like this suzani print and layer it with a solid white tablecloth. A Moroccan wedding blanket or cozy throw on each bench creates a warm, comfortable place for guests to dine.
