Make Sure It's Legit

The USDA's National Organic Program also handles beauty goods, so if you see a product with one of their seals, you know it's got the good stuff (products contain 70% or more organic ingredients).

Bridal Beauty: The 411 on Facials

Facials are a beauty treatment many brides enjoy -- they feel indulgent buy wedding dresses and can ensure your skin looks its most glowing on your wedding day. A good facial includes surface cleansing, deep pore cleansing (sometimes including extractions), exfoliation, toning, and moisturizing. The combination of services you receive depends on your skin type; oily skins will get extra cleansing, dry skin extra-moisturizing treatments. If you've never had a professional facial before, here's what to expect:


Step 1: Consultation and Cleansing

The facialist will look at your skin, usually under the unforgiving glare of a bright light, and buy wedding dresses sometimes using a cheap wedding dresses big magnifying glass. She may ask you questions about diet, exercise, skin problems, sun exposure, or skin care. Then she'll identify what she sees as your problems -- clogged pores, blackheads, dryness, etc. This is a good time to tell her when you're getting married and ask her to sest a routine you can follow to ensure great skin on the big day.


Next, she'll cleanse your face with a mild cleanser, removing any grime and makeup you came in with. You'll probably experience this as a relaxing face massage. Then, your aesthetician will exfoliate your face, either with a scrub or an AHA product, or both. The AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid) your facialist uses has a higher percentage of acid than the kinds you can buy in a store; therefore, it gives more of an exfoliation. It sounds scary, but don't panic -- you may experience a tingling feeling, but it shouldn't hurt.


Step 2: Steaming and Extraction

At this point, your facialist may wheel out a strange-looking machine -- a steamer. It blows gusts of steam at your face, softening the skin, opening the pores, and preparing for extraction (the deep pore cleansing process). Different salons have different ways of doing this. At some, you'll sit up with your face over a pot of boiling water to which soothing chamomile herbs have been added. At others, your face is wrapped in warm towels, ever so gently coaxing those pores to open. This process can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.


When your pores lie vulnerable and open to the waiting aesthetician, she will get down to some serious work: extraction. This may sound like the scariest part of a facial, but for some of us it's by far the most important. How to put this delicately? Oh heck, the facialist wraps her fingers in tissue, or puts on thin rubber gloves, and squeezes your ... imperfections. She does what you do in the privacy of your own bathroom under unforgiving fluorescent light. And, yes, you actually pay her for this.

Though you may prefer to pop your own pimples (you shouldn't -- but at the same time, the thought of someone doing it for you is kinda yucky) there are benefits to having an aesthetician do it: she has a lot of experience (believe it or not, squeezing schmutz out of your pores takes talent) and she works in a sterile environment, thereby reducing the risk of infection. A thorough extraction will cover your hairline, t-zone, cheeks, chin, nose, and some adventuresome facialists will venture into the neck and ear areas!


Step 3: The Fun Stuff

After extraction, breathe a sigh of relief and get ready for the fun part. After shop wedding dresses cleaning things up with a toner made for your skin type, the facialist will apply a treatment cheap wedding dresses mask to close up the pores, tighten the skin, and get rid of any debris from the extraction process. Many salons use this period to give you a facial massage, too, using wonderful aromatherapy oils to soothe away the stress and impurities. For dry skin, a rehydrating ginseng mask might be used, for oily skin, a detoxifying seaweed, and for sensitive skin, aloe vera. And don't be surprised if two or more masks are used, one right after the other. For example, you may have oily and sensitive skin. Plus, while the mask is on you may get a neck, back, and hand massage from your kind aesthetician along with some good advice or gossip, then be left to snooze for a while so the masks can do their magic.


When all the gunk comes off, your face should be as smooth and pink as a newborn baby's bottom. Expect your facialist to apply a sunblock with at least SPF 15, especially if you've had an AHA treatment, because it makes skin extremely sun-sensitive. The cost? Anywhere between $50 to $250, depending on the treatments you have done and where you live. And be sure to shop wedding dresses get recommendations before you choose a salon -- you don't want just anyone picking at your face!

-- Renee A. Ramirez

Many African-American women are darker across the brow and chin, and slightly lighter on the cheeks. Use the light foundation as your under-eye concealer and to lighten a dark forehead or chin area. Use the medium foundation as your all-over color to correct spots of varied pigmentation. Use the dark foundation to even out the lightest areas of your face. You can also experiment with a bronzing stick to bring down the lighter tones of your face.
Getting Cheeky

The key with blush is to avoid anything that looks ashy or pale on your skin. Lighter skin tones look pretty and most natural in dark bronzers, though apricot, rose, and soft pink also work well. Medium to dark skin tones look best with deep blush hues like dark rose, currant, and plum.
Makeup, then Kiss

In general, the darker your skin tone, the darker you can go with your lip color. Burgundy shop wedding dresses and blackberry are beautiful on dark skin. Women with medium skin tones look pretty in currant or red, and those with light skin look best in low-voltage neutrals and glosses. If your bottom lip is paler than your top lip, you can even them out by applying a sheer, dark lipstick to your lower lip as a base, then sweeping the same lipstick over both lips.

If you want to have very full lips lips that don't require too much enhancement, avoid bright, attention-getting colors and stick to quiet, flattering shades instead, like caramel and soft brown. Perfect for kissing the groom!

Shape Up: The Knot Wedding Dress Workout

Since it's all about the dress, your workout should be catered toward what you're wearing.
Pick your gown style from the list below and follow the instructions to achieve a healthier, hotter you.




The Sheath Workout
What you want: A sleek, smooth torso for even the slinkiest sheath.

The Twist
1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and knees slightly bent. Imagine holding a ball in buy wedding dresses between your thighs. Squeeze your thigh muscles, then pull in your belly and tuck it under your pelvis (so you're in a slight sitting position). Lace your fingers together and place your hands behind your head.

2. Keeping your chest high, slowly twist from side to side without moving your lower body, so that your upper body turns from facing left to facing right. Keep it slow -- you won't get the full benefit if you're relying on momentum. Repeat 40 times. Yep, you heard us right -- 40!

Standing Side Crunch
1. Stand in the same position as you did for the twist, with your abs tucked in and your toes facing front (but drop the imaginary ball!).

2. Lift your left knee toward your left arm bringing your elbow down to meet it. Hold, then return to the starting position. Repeat it on the right and do a total of 20 repetitions on each side.




The Open-back Dress Workout
What you want: An upper- and lower-back workout to help firm up that all-important rear view.

One-Arm Row
1. Stand with your left side next to the front of a bench (or a coffee table, or a couch). Place your left foot and left hand on the bench, bending your right knee. Keeping your torso parallel to the ground, grasp a dumbbell with your right hand. Let your arm hang straight down with your palm facing your thigh.

2. Slowly pull the dumbbell up and back until it's in line with your hip. You should feel cheap wedding dresses a muscle contraction in your upper back (that means it's working!). Repeat 10 times, then switch sides.

Pullover
1. Lie on the floor with your knees bent, hip-width apart, and feet planted. Grab a dumbbell with each hand and extend your arms up over your body, so that your arms make a 90-degree angle with your torso.

2. Keeping your elbows slightly bent, slowly lower the dumbbell back behind your head as far as you can; you should feel a stretch in your back muscles. Next, lift the dumbbell back into the starting position above your body, squeezing your back muscles as you go up. Do 10 repetitions per set.




The Strapless Dress Workout
What you want: Toned triceps, biceps, and pectorals to really strut your strapless stuff.

2. Keeping your elbows at your sides, slowly curl the dumbbells toward your shoulders. Reverse direction and lower the dumbbells into starting position -- avoid locking your elbows. Do 10 repetitions per set. Slow and steady wins the race here -- you'll get a bigger benefit from the exercise if you use concentrated, controlled movements. If you feel like you're whipping the weights around to get them up, your dumbbells are too heavy. Downgrade to a smaller weight so you can move more comfortably.

Flat Dumbbell Fly
1. Lie down with your knees bent and your feet firmly planted shoulder-width apart. Stretch out your arms on the floor so your body makes a T. Grasp a dumbbell in each outstretched hand, keeping your elbows slightly bent. Keep your palms facing up towards the ceiling.

Tricep Dips
1. Sit normally on a sturdy, nonwheeled chair. Place your hands on the front edge of the seat (fingertips facing front) and your feet on the floor, hip-width apart and a little bit ahead of you. Slowly slide your bottom off the shop wedding dresses seat of the chair, keeping your hands where there are.

2. Keeping your arms close to your body, bend your elbows until your upper arms are parallel to the floor, allowing your rear end to descend past the edge of the chair.

Bridesmaids: Choosing Dresses They'll Love

Listen up, brides. Don't attempt to dress your maids buy wedding dresses in some puffy-sleeved, kelly green, satin-and-lace confection that makes them look pallid, plump, and sexless. (Trust us, it's been done.) Try to remember that these are your bestest friends in the whole world, and since they are most likely paying for them, it would be great it they could wear their outfits again.

Here are some dos, don'ts, and basic truths to consider when choosing your bridesmaid dresses:


Don't jump on a trend without thinking of how your friends will look and feel.

Do Try to find a style and color that is flattering to the different sizes and skin tones of your bridesmaids.

Do Try to keep the price at something that everyone can afford. $200 is a good figure to keep in mind, but if you can do it for less, everyone will be happier.

Do Consider letting your bridesmaids wear clothing of their own choice. What cheap wedding dresses you lose in uniformity will be made up for in comfort and happiness, which will be apparent in the way they carry themselves and smile. A variation on this theme is to let them wear dresses of their own choosing as long as they are a certain color.

Do Consider dress length: Formal and semiformal weddings call for long, ballerina-length, or tea-length dresses. At an informal or daytime wedding, bridesmaid dresses can be the same length as the bride's dress, short or long.

A Few More Words of Advice:
Do consider body types -- if one maid is voluptuous, another's rail-thin and yet another is tiny and boyish, you can't wedge them all into something skin-tight or cleavage-revealing. Very few figures are flattered by a big old contrasting-color bow on the butt or hundreds of tiny, ballooning pleats. Simple, elegant designs are the most flattering to all figures.

Don't put everyone in seafoam green, sweetie. Perhaps you have your wedding colors shop wedding dresses in mind, but are these really colors you would ask your friends to wrap themselves in? Be careful about colors that rarely occur in nature, or only on football uniforms. Remember, some colors are truly neutral -- navy blue and even black are good choices for formal weddings.

Do remember your friends aren't filthy rich. They don't buy dresses that look terrible on them and toss them out after one occasion, just for laughs. Think about dresses they could REALLY wear again.

Above all, you want your friends to like you before, during, and after the ceremony. Our best advice: Don't jump on a trend without thinking of how your friends will feel and look.

If you're not much of a makeup person -- and even if you are -- you should think about hiring a makeup artist for your wedding day. A pro can give you picture-appropriate makeup that stays put. Here are some tips for seeking out someone to help you look big-day beautiful.

Finding One

* Ask your friends. Nothing beats word of mouth when it comes to finding true talent, especially in the world of weddings.
* Check out department stores. Talk to beauty consultants at cosmetics counters and pay attention to how their own makeup looks; let the ones you feel comfortable with give you a makeover (it's free!). Explain that you're shopping for your wedding-day face, and if you're happy with the results, ask if they make house calls or if they'll schedule time for you to come to the store the day of your wedding.
* Look in the Yellow Pages. Let your fingers do the walking to get names of makeup artists in your area. Or make a list of beauty salons and call around to see if they offer makeup services.
* Ask your photographer. Most photographers have worked with makeup artists and can recommend some good ones.

* Collect pictures from magazines to show the makeup artist so he or she can get an idea of the look you're going for. Keep in mind that your wedding is not the time to start experimenting -- stick to an enhanced version of your everyday self.
* Schedule trial runs before your prewedding parties or other special events (friends' shop wedding dresses weddings, class reunions, etc.). Some makeup artists do charge you for these practice sessions -- so find a crowd to wow!
* Take a close look at yourself a few hours after a trial makeover to check how the makeup wears on your skin. Does it last or fade away? Note any color changes or allergic reactions.
* Find out if the makeup artists charge a higher fee to come to your home. See if they also expect you to pay their travel expenses.
* While it may be more convenient, having them make a house call isn't always worth the additional cost.
* Finally, ask what will happen if the makeup artist can't be there on the day of the wedding. Will he or she arrange for someone else to do the job or are you on your own?

Bridal Beauty: Perfect Skin and Lip Tips

You're the best judge of what looks good on you, but camera-ready, long-lasting skin and lips are a little different from the everyday variety, and these secrets will help you keep your just-done-up look all day. And even though it may seem like a lot of makeup, especially if you usually go au naturel, these tricks will leave you looking like you, only better. Adding at least one step to each part of your makeup routine should give you the definition and finish you need to look amazing all day long and in pictures.



Your Skin

The key to gorgeous skin on your wedding day is to build a solid foundation (pun intended).


Skin Tip 1: Plan Ahead
If you've been caring for your skin, you won't have to work as hard on W-Day to get that buy wedding dresses natural glow. In the weeks prior, pay attention to your face (neck, chest, and shoulders, too): Moisturize, use sunscreen, and get a relaxing facial (schedule it to allow several days for any redness to fade). If you've got problem skin (a.k.a. pimples), treat it with tried-and-true over-the-counter zit-busting products or see a dermatologist to ask about remedies.

Skin Tip 2: Avoid Surprises
Now is not the time to try something new. Whether it's a blemish cream or a new foundation, you could have an unexpected reaction. So even if you're the impulsive Vegas-wedding type, try to pick up your products at least a week before the day. And don't just leave them in their pretty packages -- patch test them to check for allergic reactions.

Skin Tip 3: Start Fresh
After you've cleansed your face, apply a primer. (Skip moisturizer unless your skin is extremely dry.) Don't be alarmed -- the newest primers are light, not spacklelike, and they contain soothing ingredients such as aloe. Primer will create a base that allows foundation to go on smoothly and to last, avoiding rough, dry patches.

Skin Tip 4: Watch out
Be sure to be gentle around the eyes. Start with a light layer of moisturizing eye cream to smooth the way for cover-up. And skip any eye creams with depuffing or anti-aging ingredients. Just remember: You merely want to moisturize to allow concealer and foundation to go on smoothly and stay out of those fine lines.

Skin Tip 5: Hide the Evidence
After primer, apply concealer. Pick one that's not too dry (to avoid flaking) and apply it in the creases around your nose, on your "moustache" area, around lips, and on the center of your chin. If you have spots, discoloration, or blemishes, dab a thin layer there too. The more you spot-cover, the less foundation you'll need, giving you a more natural look. Dab or brush on concealer and then tap it into the skin with your fingertips. (Avoid concealers with blemish-fighting ingredients or use them only on spots -- they could irritate sensitive skin.)

Don't forget the inside bridge of your nose near the corner of your eye when applying concealer. cheap wedding dresses Start there and tap under your eye, stopping at about the outer edge of your iris to avoid emphasizing outer-eye crinkles. Press concealer gently into the skin with your fingers to make it stick and avoid pulling or stretching skin.

Skin Tip 6: Cover Up
Next, apply foundation on your entire face, blending with your fingers or a sponge. As with concealer, press gently with your fingers to set the product into your skin. If using a sponge applicator, take the clean side of the sponge after application and buff your entire face to eliminate any stray lines, streaks, or blobs. Blend gently to your jawline and just below to avoid staining the neckline of your gown.

Skin Tip 7: Get Set
Apply a translucent powder to set makeup and absorb shine. Stash a compact in the bag you'll carry during the reception, but steer clear of messy loose powders. Find a pressed powder you love prewedding.

Skin Tip 8: Do Damage Control
Appoint one of your bridesmaids or close friends to be your makeup monitor. Ask her to tip you off if your glow is turning into a meltdown so you can dash off for a quick fix. In addition to a powder compact, blotting papers can pick up excess oil or perspiration without smudging makeup, so tuck those into your purse or—our fave trick—your bouquet wrap.



Your Lips

Your lips will get a workout (everyone wants to kiss the bride), so start with a lipstick shop wedding dresses that's meant to last, but carry gloss or a topcoat in your purse for touch-ups.


Lip Tip 1: Get in Line
First, line lips with a neutral pencil that matches your lip color to give definition and help hold color in place. Blend lightly with your fingertip. You should not be able to see the line.

Lip Tip 2: Cover with Care
Next, apply a layer of lipstick all over lips and blot with some tissue. Then go back for a second layer. When picking a lipstick, stick with your usual color preferences. But remember, you aren't often in a dress this fancy, so it's okay to dial up the drama with a deeper hue. If you're the natural type, try a neutral brown-pink; if you love glamour, go with a mulberry or true red.

Lip Tip 3: Shine On
Top lip color with a dab of clear gloss. Go easy on the shine as too much will look drippy in photos. And, when the guests start dinging on the crystal, you'll be ready.

Bridal Beauty: Head-to-Toe Prep Guide

Wedding-day beauty shouldn't begin on the day-of while you're sitting in the stylist's chair. Start now to ensure you look your bridal best.
Hair

Great bridal locks require a little love and devotion. We all know that washing, buy wedding dresses blow-drying, and heat-styling on a daily basis makes for a messy head, full of split ends and "wispies" (those little broken pieces of hair that stick up from your scalp). Start repairing from the inside out. Experts believe that a diet filled with Vitamin B helps bring out your hair's natural shine (dull hair is actually a symptom of a Vitamin B deficiency). Foods like fish, nuts, and eggs will give you a good head start. On the outside, an invigorating scalp massage and deep conditioning treatment (about 4 weeks prior to the event) not only feels good, but stimulates the hair follicles and adds body. FYI Despite what many bottles claim, there is no way to repair damaged ends -- once your hair breaks, get a trim.

tip

During the days before the wedding, steer clear of too much salty food, which can cause eyes to look swollen.
Face

When it comes to the best way to care for your face, there are many schools of thought but here are a few good pointers for common issues A dermatologist can help those fighting a losing acne battle, by prescribing topical creams and oral pills, or administering facial peels to knock out bacteria and oils. Start seeing a derm six months before the wedding-your skin will need to adjust to a new regimen, and your body to any new medications. If you're looking to bring a dull complexion to life, an aesthetician at your local spa can provide a series of facials that clear blackheads, slough off dead skin cells, and improve circulation. (Start these visitations six months prior as well-and don't dare get a facial within ten days of your wedding.) But the real secret to great skin? Water. Drink tons of H2O before and on your wedding day to make your face look dewy and radiant.
Eyes

Dark circles and puffiness are common bride-to-be afflictions (all those late nights pouring over the seating chart is bound to take a toll, after all). Since the skin around your eyes is particularly sensitive, be gentle take off eye makeup with a water-soluble remover (don't scrub), and keep rubbing to a minimum. A nightly application of eye cream, in combination with adequate sleep, will improve the appearance of dark circles and a cool compress once or twice a week (or as needed) helps keep puffiness at bay. During the days before the wedding, steer clear of too much salty food, which can cause eyes to look swollen.
Lips

For that all-important kiss at the end of the ceremony, you'll want your lips to be in the best possible shape. A cheap wedding dresses Vitamin E stick (sold at pharmacies and health food stores) can combat cracks and creases that weather and nervous lip biting can cause. You should also exfoliate your lips at least once a week, to clear away dead skin Wet a toothbrush with warm water and brush lips with a gentle back-and-forth motion. Finally, protect your kisser with sunscreen, as the sun can leave lips looking -- and feeling -- parched.
Neck and Decollete

Since your gown no doubt shows off a little (or a lot!) of neck and decollete, start taking care of this overlooked region as soon as you can. Think of it as an extension of the skin on your face -- but remember that this fragile skin is thinner, has fewer oil glands than the rest of the body, and requires special care to keep it supple and smooth. Exfoliate it with a gentle face scrub every other day, apply a light moisturizer daily, and use sunscreen when heading out in a chest-baring top.
Body

From the inside, a daily multivitamin can work wonders on a range of ills -- from digestive issues to sleeping problems to frayed nerves. Vitamins also up your energy factor, making wedding planning easier. On the outside, exfoliation is the name of the game, because it makes skin feel softer and more toned (no gym required!). Use an exfoliator each day, whether in the form of a loofah or a body scrub.
Legs

Your wedding dress might have your legs covered, but that's no reason to ignore them. Shave shop wedding dresses only after you've softened the skin with warm (not hot) water and use a moisturizing shave cream. One of the simplest rules for keeping them smooth post-shower, apply a rich moisturizer while legs are still damp.
Feet

Sure you'll probably treat yourself to a pedicure before the big day, but you should indulge your feet in sweet treatments in the months leading up to the wedding. Good foot care starts with a little tough love use a pumice stone or foot rasp daily to scrub away dry, cracked skin on heels and toes. Note that feet should be damp, not completely wet -- a sopping foot is too slippery to be properly exfoliated. Then treat your feet while you sleep slather on a thick moisturizer and slip into a pair of socks, which will retain body heat and help seal in moisture overnight. An added bonus to these measures well-moisturized, cared-for feet are less likely to blister in uncomfortable shoes.

Bridal Beauty: Finding a Foundation

Wearing foundation is the surest way to achieve flawless-looking skin -- whether or not you were born with it. Here are some great tips to finding a perfect match:


Don't Scrimp

Even if you make all your other makeup purchases at the drugstore, try buy wedding dresses to purchase your foundation at a department store cosmetics counter, where you can get professional guidance in choosing the right shade, and you can test a color before buying it.


What to Look For

The right foundation should not be too heavy or artificial looking. It should be so perfectly matched to your skin tone that it disappears -- you don't see makeup, just a smooth, flawless face.


Know What's Out There

There are four common types of foundation: Liquid, which is the most popular and user-friendly; Cream, a thicker, more opaque foundation; Tinted Moisturizer, moisture and color in one -- the sheerest of all options; and Wet/Dry Foundation (also called "dual-finish"), a combination of foundation and powder that can be applied dry or with a damp sponge, which is good for oily skin types.


Do a Cheek Test

Swipe some on your cheek. Then grab a mirrored compact and step cheap wedding dresses outside into natural light. It's the only way to see how the shade really works on you. Look to see if the foundation is visible. If it's very hard to see on your face, you've found the right one. If the swipe is obvious, move on to the next shade.


Color It Right

If you find that your skin falls between two shades, go with shop wedding dresses the warmer, or slightly darker shade. A lighter tone can make the skin appear chalky. Also, if your face and neck are different skin tones, compensate with a slightly warmer foundation on your face. When in doubt, choose a foundation with a yellow tone; they're usually the most flattering.

Bridal Beauty: Brows that Wow

Impeccable eyebrows are essential to looking your best. Think buy wedding dresses of them as a frame to a beautiful painting (your face!) and make sure they're shaped to compliment your feautures.

You've got two choices when it comes to eyebrow grooming: to wax, or to tweeze. Waxing can be less painful, but is difficult to do at home. Tweezing gives you more control, since you pluck just one hair at a time. Below are tips for getting the perfect arch.
knot note

If you do accidentally remove too much brow, use a brow pencil to fill in the missing hairs and consider going to a professional for some tips. A pro can show you how to make your brows look even with powder and brow stencils (a brow cut-out that you place over yours and use as a guide).
Tweeze Whiz


* For starters, you need to use the right tool that grabs the hair securely.

* Before tweezing, apply some ice to the brow to numb the nerve endings and nix pain.

* To determine where to tweeze, use an eyebrow pencil to fill in the shape you want, then tweeze any hair outside the lines.

* If you're not sure where your brows should begin and end, hold an eyeliner pencil straight along the side of your nose, then tweeze any hairs that extend inward past the pencil toward your other brow.

* Next, angle the pencil outward from the bottom side of your nose toward the outside corner of your eye and tweeze any hairs that extend outside the pencil toward your ear.

* If you have stray eyebrow hairs creeping up your forehead, tweeze those away, too.

* Finally, tweeze any stray hairs beneath the brow, and form an arch that peaks cheap wedding dresses over the outside corner of the iris, not the pupil.



Match Game

Now that you've cleaned up your brows, you'll want to make sure they match. You shop wedding dresses should start with the arch. Adjust arches by tweezing out unwanted hairs and filling in gaps with an eyebrow pencil or powder.


If you have a round face, you can add angularity with sharply-arched, defined brows. If your face is more angular, go for a softer brow with a less dramatic arch. Either way, remember to go slowly or you risk over-tweezing. You don't want a surprised look on your wedding day.


Hue Review

Color is critical when using artificial eyebrow enhancers. Your brows should match the hair on your head. (If you have a highlighted or multi-hued mane, brows shouldn't be darker than the darkest shade on your head.)

Our pick: When the sun is still up, you're allowed to loosen the rules. Go for buy wedding dresses a black tuxedo (or a very dark suit) over a tone-on-tone shirt set, such as a gray oxford and a long platinum tie (blues, greens, and purples look great too).

A Catering Hall

Semiformal, Late Fall, 6:30 p.m.
Our pick: Switch in a long silk tie to the classic tuxedo ensemble and you'll create a look that's still dressy but less stuffy (and keeps the "semi" in semiformal).

On the Beach

Casual, Spring, 5:30 p.m.

Feel free to wear leather sandals or flip-flops.

Grooms: A Glossary of Tuxedo Terms and Wedding Tuxedo Styles

Jackets

Tuxedo, a.k.a. tux
This is by far the most common, most classic tux jacket, and is worn at formal and semiformal events. There are a surprising number of choices to make when picking a classic jacket. You can go single-breasted (with a one- to four-button front) or double-breasted (with a two- to six-button front). There are three types of lapels: peaked, notched, or shawl (see below for more lapel info).

Full dress, a.k.a. tails or tailcoat
This style jacket is cropped in front, with two buy wedding dresses tails in the back and a two- to six-button front. Generally worn at ultra-formal evening weddings.

Mandarin, a.k.a. Nehru jacket, Mao jacket
This jacket features a stand-up collar with no lapel and is worn with a Mandarin-collared shirt. Hint: This combo provides a sneaky way to avoid wearing a tie.

Cutaway, a.k.a. morning coat
For formal daytime weddings, the groom wears the cutaway coat -- short in the front, long in the back, and tapering from the front waist button to a wide back tail. Cutaway jackets are either black or gray and are worn with matching striped trousers.

Stroller coat
This is a semi-formal suit jacket cut like a tuxedo. Usually charcoal gray or black and typically worn at weddings that take place before 4p.m.


Lapels

Notched lapel
This lapel features a triangular indention where the lapel joins the collar. This is considered the least formal lapel style.

Shawl collar
This is a smooth, rounded lapel with no notch.

Peaked lapel
This broad, V-shaped lapel points up and out just below the collar line.


Trousers

If you choose a formal tuxedo, your trousers should match your jacket in style and color. If you’ll be in a formal daytime wedding and will wear a stroller coat or cutaway coat, wear gray or gray pinstriped trousers.


Shirt Collars

Wing collar
The most formal choice and the collar style most often worn with tuxedo jackets, this stand-up collar has downward points.

Crosswyck
This collar style crosses in front and is fastened with a shiny button.

Mandarin collar, a.k.a. band collar
This collar stands up around the neck and is the most contemporary-style cheap wedding dresses tuxedo shirt. If ties remind you of a hangman’s noose, you'll love this option, since you can wear it without a tie.

Spread collar
This resembles a standard button-front shirt but features a wide division between points in front. The wider collar looks great with a Euro tie or a standard necktie tied in a Windsor knot.


Cuffs

As for sleeve cuffs, you have a few options: standard dress-shirt cuffs held together with cuff links; French cuffs, which are folded over and closed with cuff links; and cuffs that close with a button. The choice is yours, but, in general, formal shirts call for cuff links.

You can also wear a classic tie with your tux, to create a more casual -- yet still elegant -- wedding look. Pick a silk tie in silver or blue, which will be dressy enough to stand up to a tux.

Ascot tie
This wide, formal tie is usually patterned, folded over, and fastened with a stickpin or tie tack. Usually reserved for ultra-formal daytime weddings and worn with a cutaway coat and striped gray trousers.

Bolo tie
You go, cowboy! If you’re having a Western-themed wedding, live in Santa Fe, or are a working broncobuster, this stringy tie is for you. But if your bride has visions of Breakfast at Tiffany’s dancing in her head, think again before breaking out your bolo tie for the wedding, and go instead for something more classic.

Euro tie
This is a hybrid between an ascot tie and a regular, run-of-the-mill necktie. It’s a long, square-bottomed tie knotted at the neck and worn with a wing collar or spread collar shirt. The Euro offers a more formal look that's not as all-out as an ascot.


Accessories

Vests, a.k.a. waistcoats
For an ultra-formal evening wedding, clad yourself in a white tie and waistcoat. Or choose a colored waistcoat instead of a cummerbund for the Four Weddings and a Funeral look, popular in Britain. Vests let men in the wedding party lend a bit of personality to their looks.

Cummerbunds
These are pleated swatches of fabric worn around the waist when you're not wearing a vest. Usually basic black, but you can choose a colored cummerbund to match the bridesmaid dresses or the wedding colors.

Cuff links
Use these little babies to add a personal touch to your wedding ensemble. If you want outlandish, try a set of magic-eight-ball cuff links. If simple elegance is your style, stick with black cuff links outlined in gold. Who knows? shop wedding dresses Maybe your bride will give you a set as a gift on the big day.

Tuxedos: 4 Ways the Groom Can Stand Out - Grooms & Guys - Tuxedos & Attire

Sure, all eyes will be on the bride, but as the groom you should still set yourself apart. Although wedding tradition dictates that the groom and his henchmen all wear similar outfits, it's important to help guests identify you as the special guy who just locked lips with the bride at the altar.

The more formal the event, the more strict the codes of conduct. If you and yours are opting for an ultra-formal affair, your team will wear virtually the same togs, so being singular becomes a tougher task. The more casual the celebration, the more leeway you'll have. But regardless of the sartorial dictates of your wedding you can use these four ways to stand out on your special day.


Alternative Tux

Wearing a subtly different jacket from those of your groomsmen buy wedding dresses is a surefire way to make your mark. For a daytime affair, wear a cutaway coat, but have your boys wear stroller coats instead. If you select a double-breasted jacket, put your men in a single-breasted cut. Or, put yourself in a one-button jacket and have the groomsmen sport a three-button version. If your tux has a satin lapel, the boys' could be plain. Another option: wear a white dinner jacket, and put the groomsmen in traditional black tuxes (or vice versa).


A Fancier Flower

A unique boutonniere, a "mini-corsage" worn on the jacket lapel, is the easiest way to help guests single you out. If your wedding will be very formal and mismatched tuxes would seem inappropriate, run with this option. For example, have boutonnieres made of the same flower (such as stephanotis) for the groom and groomsmen, but add a berry or herbal accent, such as rosemary, oregano, or mint to yours. Or, select a different but very similar blossom: wear a lily of the valley boutonniere, and have your men sport stephanotis. It's a good idea to keep the flowers in the same color family for a consistent look. Two more options: the groom can adorn himself with a 2- or 3-blossom boutonniere and the groomsmen with a single bloom of the identical flower, or the groom can wear a fully open blossom while the groomsmen don buds of the same flower.


The Telltale Tie

Boost your "all about me" factor by wearing a different colored tie or bow tie than the gang. For cheap wedding dresses instance, if you wear a silver tie and matching vest, the groomsmen could sport a vest and tie combo that complements or matches the bridesmaid dresses. Grooms can go one step further and wear a different type of neckwear from the guys. If you choose a bow tie, the groomsmen could wear neckties with a Windsor knot, which has a triangle-shaped knot, larger than your standard, everyday four-in-hand. Or, if you plan to wear an ascot, select a matching necktie for your men.


Variety in the Vest

Vests are another element of the tux with which grooms shop wedding dresses can experiment. Pick a vest that's a different color from that of your groomsmens'. If you choose a black tie and black vest, you could put the groomsmen in a color that matches the bridesmaid dresses. Or, set yourself apart in a cummerbund and put the fellas in vests.

Wedding Rehearsals: Rehearsal Dinner Basics

Don't let the name, wedding rehearsal, fool you. You don't have to spend the entire night perfecting your walk down the aisle -- just part of it. You'll spend the rest of the wedding rehearsal eating and drinking merrily, compliments of the groom and his family (at least most of the time).


What Is It?

The rehearsal dinner is a practice party traditionally hosted by the buy wedding dresses groom's parents on the eve of the wedding. A formal rehearsal of the ceremony is not mandatory, but most officiants will want to run through the service with the bride, groom, their parents, the wedding party, and any readers, giving everyone their cues for the next day. If you have a slew of attendants this is a good time to get them familiar with the layout of the ceremony location and make sure they know the order they're walking in -- as well as an opportunity to go over what time to be there on the wedding day, and any other last-minute details.

Mingle your guests. The dinner is a great opportunity for both of your families to get better acquainted before the wedding day.

After the rehearsal -- usually held at the church/ceremony site -- everyone gathers for a celebratory dinner, where the bride and groom are roasted and toasted (go easy on the toasting; you do have to get married the next day!). The dinner is a great opportunity for your two families to get better acquainted before the wedding day. You may also present the wedding party with thank-you gifts during the course of the evening.


Who Hosts?

Traditionally, the groom's family throws this fete, but these days it's up for grabs. You two might take matters into your own hands, or both sets of parents may choose to do the honors together. See if there's room in your wedding budget.


Where Is It?

The event can be as casual or as fancy as you like. Many are held cheap wedding dresses in hotel banquet rooms, or restaurants, with full-course dinners and desserts (some have a distinct resemblance to a wedding reception!). Others are held at home, with Italian or Chinese food ordered in. Where you decide to have yours depends on the budget of whoever is throwing it, how many guests there will be -- and often simply what kind of party the host or hostess envisions. While the couple does have some say about this, if the groom's family hosts, you should really try to let his mom be the hostess for this evening. Concentrate your own planning efforts on the wedding. If you're hosting, find your wedding rehearsal dinner location.


Who's Invited?

At the very least, the wedding guest list includes immediate family (parents and siblings), wedding-party members and any spouses and significant others, and the parents of any child attendants (inviting the children themselves is optional). You should also invite the officiant and his/her spouse to the dinner.

If many out-of-town guests are invited to the wedding, they may also be invited to the rehearsal dinner, especially if there are many who will have already arrived in town for the wedding. If you'd rather have the rehearsal be an intimate affair but don't want to leave other guests hanging, think about having the rehearsal two nights before the wedding day -- on Thursday night for a Saturday wedding -- and then having a welcome party for out-of-towners on Friday night instead.


What Happens?

A few elements are generally incorporated into the festivities:

Toasting: This is a great opportunity to thank your loved ones -- there probably shop wedding dresses won't be time to publicly toast everyone at the wedding reception itself. As host of the party, the groom's father often goes to bat first, toasting his soon-to-be daughter-in-law and her family; the groom also says a few words.

Giving gifts: You may choose to give your attendants their thank-you gifts at this shindig. Make sure to also present your parents and anyone else who was an integral part of the wedding-planning process with a token of your appreciation -- flowers, a nice bottle of wine, or even a huge hug will do.

Transportation: A Wedding Day Guideline

The last thing on the mind of the on-the-go, wedding-overwhelmed couple is, well, probably automobiles. But to take a spin to (and from) the ceremony and reception -- and making the ride as smooth as possible -- means getting in gear.
Decide on the Ride

You'll need to figure out the mode of transport for the two of you as well as your family and attendants, and maybe even some of your out-of-town guests. Hiring transportation makes a lot of sense; it gets people to sites on time and without incident (remember, you don't want your dearest hitting the roads after a few glasses of champagne at the reception). The logistics (especially if the wedding has a guest list of 100) can be nightmarish, so get a move on it: Assess your needs buy wedding dresses and pick your approach, then book your dreamboat(s) well in advance of your wedding date just to be on the safe side.

Selecting your own getaway mobile should complement and match your sense of style as a couple.
Personal Drive Style

First things first: transport for the two of you. Like every other aspect of your wedding, selecting your own getaway mobile should complement and match your sense of style as a couple (not to mention that this is how your guests will remember you and your honey -- pardon the cliche -- riding off into the sunset). Do you see yourself arriving in a horse-drawn carriage or convertible red Mustang? Departing in a classy Rolls-Royce or rock-star stretch limo? Though the options are many, choose something that fits your budget as well as your personality.
Passenger Head Count

Now determine how many other people will need a lift. As for your family and attendants, think about who needs to travel together: treat parents, siblings, and grandparents to private town cars; move attendants en masse in limos. Out-of-town guests are another issue. Though it's not the financial responsibility of the bride and groom to get guests around overall, it's common courtesy to help out those traveling visitors who might not have cars. Don't leave them to fend for themselves.

The most cost-effective transport, of course, is to recruit kith and kin to carpool with the out-of-towners, but sorting out how to get everyone from point A to point B may become an unruly task if there are a lot of people to pair up from multiple origin points. If it's too unwieldy to pull together a volunteer fleet and you opt to rent, do the math to see which option makes the most sense. Though limos and town cars are standards, don't rule out less orthodox modes of transport for large-scale people moving: vans can hold nine to 15 people, and buses can fit between 40 and 60 people.
Travel Time

Cover all your bases when devising your transportation schemes. When booking your cars for hire, consider the time your ceremony ends, how long it will take guests to get from one point to the other, and the hour your party is scheduled to start. If your exchange of vows ends at 4:30 p.m. and the reception location is only 15 minutes away but cocktail hour doesn't begin until 6 p.m., you run the risk of having guests arrive while the space is still being prepared.

Timing, of course, is everything, so try to schedule everything sensibly. If this is not possible, cheap wedding dresses you may need to devise a plan for how to occupy any extra time between the ceremony and reception, or, if need be, discuss with your reception site manager the possibility of starting the cocktail hour earlier.
Parking it

Granted, some guests will be shuttling themselves around, so don't forget about parking. Talk to the reception site manager and find out what your parking options are, and who handles the arrangements and staff. In the event that you may have to hire an independent service, tailor it to your needs. You can choose a full-service valet team, which will park your guests' cars and retrieve them at the end of the night, or opt for parking attendants that merely direct traffic, hold signs, and guide drivers to empty spaces. Both options will run about $20-$25 an hour per person, plus a 15%-20% tip (usually tacked on to your total bill), but you'll need more hands if you want valet parking. Figure five valets (or 3-4 parking attendants) for every 100 guests.

A massive guest list, meager to non-existent parking facilities, and a complicated location will require more help and add to the cost. Before getting a price quote, make sure the parking service manager scouts out the location to see how many attendants you'll need.
Going Rate

Who pays for all of this? Traditionally, it's the bride's family that bears the financial burden of transportation and parking, minus the expense of getting the groom and best man to the ceremony (the groom's folks traditionally pick up the tab on this one). The bride also foots the bill for getting the wedding party and family members around. Today, however, transportation is an easy way for the groom's side (or even you and your partner) to step in and lend monetary support.

To make sure everything runs like a well-oiled machine, keep a couple of points in mind. First, shop around and compare transportation prices about four to six months before your wedding day. If your ceremony coincides with prom and graduation season in May and June, absolutely get started early. Check out vehicles in person, ask what the driver will be wearing, and get it in ink.
Cost-Cutting Techniques

There are certainly ways to shave costs off your transportation tab. Skip the stretch limos and go with the regular size, or even downsize to a town car. Also, leave out amenities like a on-board bar, TV, and sunroof. Surprisingly, even the color of the car you choose can cut your bill. You'll pay less in general for black or silver limos than for white ones, particularly during high-wedding season.

Also, it's worth it to investigate whether you can schedule pickup and drop-off service so that drivers aren't sitting around waiting for their passengers during the ceremony and reception; all those extra hours can add up.
Headed My Way?

Be prepared for the big day beforehand: Create a call sheet with the names of guests and all pickup and drop-off addresses and times, and call to confirm these arrangements with the car company the day before or morning of the wedding. Drivers should have all this information in advance, including detailed directions to the ceremony and reception sites. It's also a good idea to give passengers a copy of the directions with an emergency contact number shop wedding dresses in case the driver gets lost.

Tips for the Groom's Toast - Grooms & Guys - Groom Tips

You're starting to feel it -- the terror that strikes every man who's ever taken the long walk down the aisle. We're not talking about the wedding vows here -- we mean your toasts.

There may actually be two occasions on which you'll have to deliver your words of appreciation for all those who helped make the big day happen -- at the rehearsal dinner, and at the reception. First thing's first: There will be plenty of opportunities during the reception to crack a few of your classic one-liners -- this is not one of them.


The Rehearsal Dinner

The rehearsal dinner is when all your out-of-state relatives and friends get buy wedding dresses together for food, drink, and to meet whichever half of the couple they don't already know. So what do you say to an assembled crowd when half the room has never met you before and the other half is busy sizing up your soon-to-be lawfully wedded wife? You start dishing out the compliments, of course.

There will be plenty of opportunities during the reception to crack a few of your classic one-liners -- this is not one of them.

From this point on, whenever you are called on to say a few words in reference to your wedding, always start out by saying how lucky you are to have met a woman like [fill in your bride's name here]. Of course you really mean it. Just don't forget to remind everybody else of that.

The next thing you want to do is thank all the out-of-town guests for going so far out of their way to watch you and your beloved take the plunge. This is a good time to throw in a couple of random anecdotes about Uncle Sid, who got you your first pair of roller-skates (remember, keep it general and clean -- you really don't want to get bogged down in the details here).

Finally, it's time to give your parents their due for putting on this lovely evening and doing everything they've done so well to support you over the years. If you feel like camping it up, walk over to Mom and give her a hug -- people gathered for sentimental occasions eat up this stuff.

If you follow this basic routine, you're sure to make it through the rehearsal dinner just fine.


The Reception

Next up: The wedding reception toast. The difference between the rehearsal dinner and the reception is (a) you're actually married, and (b), her parents are probably footing most of the bill instead of yours. Your toast should be adjusted accordingly.

Again, it's always recommended that you begin any comment about your wedding cheap wedding dresses with an enthusiastic reference to your bride. Actually, it's more than recommended -- let's face it, it's required. So, once you've reminded the crowd how much you love this woman, "the glowing light of your life" (it's impossible to be too sappy at this event, so go for broke), move directly to a few words regarding the evening's sponsors: your new in-laws.

There will be plenty of opportunities during the wedding reception to crack a few of your classic one-liners -- this is not one of them. When referring to your newest "Mom" and "Dad," you must be a stranger to sarcasm, an alien to irony. With emotions running this high -- to say nothing of the caterer's bill -- you just can't risk a misunderstood attempt at humor. So play it safe and leave the wisecracking roast to your fraternity brothers.

Remember, you want to thank the in-laws for more than just the good food and great company. Their biggest gift to you is their daughter's hand in marriage. Let them know that if you had never met their daughter, you'd be a much poorer man.

You'll also want shop wedding dresses to give one last nod to your own dear mom and pop for all they've done for you over the years. This is, after all, a milestone moment in their lives, too. So raise your glass high, send a hearty toast in their general direction -- if you can manage a tear, that's a nice bonus but not required -- and then walk over to your wife and give her a big kiss. A good and tipsy crowd (or even a sober one) will love it.

Groomsmen: How to Choose

Shaving Bumps

It's all about shaving with the grain in the spots where you get irritated, says Peter Wisch, MD, a society dermatologist who also treats many grooms. He sests using a lubricating shave gel (not foam) on wet skin, and letting it soak in for a few minutes to straighten the follicle. Then shave with a manual --not electric -- blade.


Unibrow

The best way to handle out-of-control eyebrows is to wax, if you can be a man and buy wedding dresses handle a little pain. Waxed hairs take longer to grow back and, when they eventually do, they'll grow in thinner and sparser. You could also undertake the painstaking (and we mean pain) process of plucking the bridge of your nose. If pain isn't your game, ask your barber to trim your brows with a scissors.

If it's too late and a monster has already arrived, a derm can give you a cortisone cream to immediately reduce swelling and redness. Can't get to a doctor? An over-the-counter topical cream with sulfur will dry out the cheap wedding dresses spot. Dr. Wisch sests a tinted solution like Rezamid or Liquimat to conceal while it heals.

Groom To-Dos: Top 10 Tips - Groom Groomsmen - Tips for grooms

You bought the ring, popped the question, and now you get to kick back until your wedding day rolls around, right? Well, that's one option, but the best way to keep her happy -- and you out of the doghouse -- is to get involved. Here are our top tips for being a great groom.

1. Have an Opinion

This is your wedding too, so get in on the planning. Pick a few things that interest you (food? the wedding music? photos?). You don't have to wax poetic on the difference between lilies and daisies for the bridesmaid bouquets, but give your opinion on the major planning points; it'll let your fiance know she's not in this alone. And wouldn't it be nice to know a little something about your wedding before you attend it?

If she's doing the majority of the planning, she's probably bordering on wedding buy wedding dresses overload.
2. Relish Your Wedding Registry

It may seem like a tedious task, but think about it: You get to wander around a store, picking things you want that someone most likely will buy you -- you can’t beat that. Better yet, it’s now common to shop beyond the kitchen department. Consider home electronics, power tools, and camping gear. Can't justify shelling out for a plasma screen yourself? Throw it on your wedding registry, and a group of friends might buy it for you!
3. Don't Be a Pushover -- Really

She wants to register for a yellow comforter with little pink flowers, and you don't want to have to stash your bedspread in the closet every time your friends come over. See if you can meet her halfway: Tell her the floral patterns are a bit much, but you're fine with yellow, maybe in another style. You'll make her happy and salvage your manhood.
4. Give Her a Break

If she's doing the majority of the planning for your wedding, she's probably bordering on wedding overload. You need to make sure she doesn't have an ulcer (or a grudge!) by the time she walks down the aisle. Give her a night to relax and cook her dinner, do the dishes, rent her favorite movie (yes, even a chick flick), and remind her why wedding planning is worth the stress.
5. Be a Buffer

If your mom is calling your fiance every hour to talk about the wedding, you run the risk of major family conflict, with you stuck in the middle. Your mission: Keep the peace. Call your mom and let her know that while you appreciate her interest and excitement, it's your wedding and she needs to give you two some planning space. Take responsibility for communicating with your family so that you can filter out petty worries from legitimate concerns.
6. Get Some Help

Has your fiance really hit the wall? Sest hiring a planner for the day of your wedding. (Use our local resources to find a great day-of wedding planner in your area.) Your consultant will handle all the little details that neither you cheap wedding dresses nor your bride will want to deal with, and it'll be a relief to have a professional on hand to fix any little mix-ups.
7. Don’t Add Insult

Your fiance may complain about her mom who’s being a control freak, or about her uncle who wants to bring his new girlfriend, or her cousin who wants to bring all four of her kids. Don’t join in on the family bashing. Hear her out, agree with her, but don’t take this opportunity to tell her the things about her family that annoys you. Her bad mood will pass, but your careless comments may stick.
8. Arrange the Attire

Send out detailed emails to all your groomsmen filling them in on the relevant info for the formalwear -- let them know when and where to get fitted for their tuxes, and remind them to return the suits the day after the wedding to avoid annoying late fees. Loop your fiance in on the emails to prove that you've got everything under control. The more info you can share, the better. Got directions to the tux place? Include them. Don't assume they'll know anything about this stuff. Did you before you got engaged?
9. Manage Your Men

Know your friend who loses his car keys at least once a week? Probably better not to make him responsible for bringing your ring to the ceremony. And your buddy who tends to drink too much? Make sure one of your more reliable (or sober) groomsmen keeps him from flirting with your fiance’s mom at the rehearsal dinner. Your guys don't have to be saints, but they will have responsibilities, and it's your job to make sure they know what they are.
10. Get Sentimental

The day of your wedding, send her a gift, flowers, or a sweet note to read while she's getting shop wedding dresses ready. Or, at the reception, pull the videographer aside and tape a special message to her. She'll see it later and we promise, she'll love you all the more.

Groom To-Dos: 12-Month Checklist

Congratulations -- you finally got up the nerve to pop the big one. Now it's time to start doing some heavy wedding lifting. Here's a handy little checklist of your most essential to-dos.


12 Months Before

* Figure out where you're going to have your ceremony buy wedding dresses and reception. Church, synagogue, remote Himalayan mountaintop? The best spots fill up fast, especially for the summer and fall months, so decide your wedding size and start looking.
* Organize your guys. After you ask your best man to do the honors, make up your groomsman list. For crowd control, you'll want at least one usher per 50 guests. If your family is particularly unruly, you may want more.
* Get what you want. Crazy as it seems, people start buying you gifts immediately and registering may be the only way to keep your friends' and relatives' questionable tastes in check! Besides, you can now register for everything from practical household gifts to a new TV.

9 Months Before

* Book the talent. Meet and greet suitable officiants. Priest, rabbi, justice of the peace, officially sanctioned Elvis impersonators -- once again, the choice is yours.
* Book the other talent. It'll probably fall to you to choose the band or disk jockey. Be sure to get references and/or hear their music beforehand -- and run this one by your bride before you sign on the dotted line.
* Figure out who your real friends are. Decide and start drawing up your guest list. This is something you'll probably want to get your parents in on, too.

6 Months Before

* Plan your honeymoon. Are you going to go to Hawaii? The Bahamas? Poughkeepsie? (If you're leaving the country, now would be a good time to check or find your passport -- or get them if you and your girl don't have 'em -- and see what kind of shots or visas you might need.)
* Who's driving? Arrange for transportation to the ceremony and reception. Think limousine or horse and by. Note: The bus is not an option. (While you're at it, figure out where you're going after the reception -- airport? hotel? -- and make plans for getting there. FYI, tradition dictates that your best man, good guy that he is, drives you. But maybe you'll have seen enough of him by that time.)

3 Months Before

* Get ready for the freeloaders. Your out-of-town guests need a place to stay, so unless you've got a couple dozen spare bedrooms, decide on a hotel and reserve a block of rooms. Let them know this in your invitations (see below).
* By this time, the guest list should be finalized -- i.e., it has bridal, groomal, and parental approval. Time to send out the invitations.
* Get dressed. So what will it be? Tails and top hat or traditional Scottish kilt? Decide and buy (or plan to rent), then pick out your groomsmen's getups.
* Give a jeweler the finger. After he measures it, let your fiancee do the same and then order your wedding rings. Decide on inscriptions.
* Take it like a man. If you're going to tie the knot, you may have to get your blood tested. It's the law in some states (maybe even yours). So visit your doctor and roll up your sleeve.

6 to 8 Weeks Before

* Get a sparkling smile. Cut down on coffee and try a whitening toothpaste. Want to really shine? Consider a professional bleaching with a dentist or use an over-the-counter whitening system.
* Don't be cheap. This is one of the most important moments in your life, so put some real thought into the matter and then buy your bride a wedding gift. Make sure it's personal, make sure it's memorable, make sure it's legal in all 50 states.
* Don't be cheap, part 2. Search high and low for the perfect groomsmen gifts. These guys are going to put out come D-Day to make sure you look your best. Make sure you get them something decent to show for it. No paperweights please!
* Don't lose it. Pick up your wedding rings and put them in a safe place. While you're at it, check the engraving carefully. A typo spells nothing but "loser."

2 Weeks Before

* Do something really romantic with your wife-to-be. But before you do, pick up your marriage license.
* Don't do something stupid. But have a really good time. It's your bachelor party and last chance to go crazy without the ball and chain legally attached.

1 Week Before

* Get ready to relax. Double-check the honeymoon cheap wedding dresses reservations, start packing your bags, and pick up travelers' checks.
* Pay the man (or woman). Wouldn't it be great if your officiant presided over your wedding just for the sake of spreading a little more love on this lonely planet? Yeah, right. Put his or her fee in an envelope and give it to your best man for post-vow delivery.
* Say something. You are expected to speak to the crowd at your wedding reception. Sound sensitive and intelligent, start coming up with that impromptu toast to her family now.
* Rally the troops. Give your groomsmen the rehearsal dinner low-down and make sure everybody's got their monkey suit pressed and ready. By the way, get a haircut already.

Day Before

* Make her cry. Write a sweet little "I love you" note (or other touching trick) shop wedding dresses and leave it somewhere she'll find it on wedding morning, particularly if you won't be seeing her before the ceremony.

Groom Basics: Real Grooms Tell All - Grooms & Guys - Groom Tips

How do guys really get involved in the wedding planning process? How about dealing with a planning-crazy bride? And how do they relax leading up to the wedding? Here, recent grooms dish their best tips and advice.


On getting involved . . .

"Let's face it, the color of the linens and the choice of stemware isn't exactly as important as, let's say, your first pick in fantasy football. But if she asks for help, do all you can to make it easy on her. Run all the errands that don't involve making a decision. Tasks such as stuffing envelopes can save her a lot of frustration and headaches."
-- Nate, Miami


"I talked her into relinquishing complete control of the rehearsal dinner -- we had an outdoor bonfire and hog roast, complete with cheesy pig invitations of my choosing. That is something I've wanted to do for a long time and really enjoyed planning."
-- Todd, Atlanta

"My favorite part of the wedding planning was, without a doubt, all the food-tasting sessions. It's a rare occasion when you get to critique five-star food, so savor this opportunity!"
-- Marcus, Dallas

"Between my wife and me, I'm actually more of the planning type, so my responsibilities included creating all of the lists and spreadsheets, serving as the communications conduit, and managing expectations. If anything, I was the ‘planning-crazy' one!"
-- Daniel, Atlanta
On using your talents . . .

"What I enjoyed most was the surprise serenade I performed for my wife at the reception, just before our first dance. I played the acoustic guitar and sang a Radiohead song for her. I had her, and most of the guests, in tears."
-- Doug, Pittsburgh


"I designed and printed all of our table cards, place cards, programs, and menus. It helps to be a little bit artistic."
-- Byron, Boston

"I'm a techy, geeky kind of guy, so it was easy for me to set up spreadsheets for wedding guest lists that dynamically updated based on whether a guest was iffy or had RSVP'd. This was really helpful in gauging our numbers before the wedding, as well as following up with thank-you cards after."
-- Mike, Denver

"Since I'm a business man, I was involved in the negotiations with the vendors. There's so much margin in wedding events that you have plenty of room to negotiate."
-- Scott, McLean
On dealing with wedding stress . . .

"I always had to remember that I had been planning the wedding since we got engaged, while she had been planning it since birth. When push comes to shove, let her know that you support her ideas, even if you really don't care."
-- Preston, Dallas


"I responded to the worst stress by playing Madden NFL against really easy teams."
-- Nikolas, Ann Arbor

"It's important to involve each other's families in the wedding preparation (notice I didn't say wedding decisions). We enlisted the help of my wife's parents with decorating the tent (her dad and mom are experts in that area). But we didn't ask them to choose which decorations we would have."
-- Matthew, Pelham Manor


On dealing with Bridezilla . . .

"My best advice would be to listen. At first, when that crazy person who looked like my wife appeared I was scared to death. But after a while she would wind down. I remember once she almost took my head off for moving her car seat back too far -- we still laugh about that one!"
-- Mayo, Birmingham


"Listen and validate her feelings. This isn't the same as agreeing with her. For example, saying, ‘You seem angry' (or frustrated or whatever it may be), shows her that you're listening. Trying to ignore it or push back will only make it worse."
-- Mike, Washington, DC

"The easiest way to keep the wife happy was to take care of cooking, keeping my house abnormally clean, and to take her out as often as I could to decompress over a few beverages and Ping-Pong at our local brewery."
-- Callip, Raleigh

"Be patient and focus on the positive. Remember, this is your bride-to-be, and all of this, regardless whether you like it, is what makes her beautiful. If you can maintain a calm demeanor, you will only add to the beauty and simplicity of the day."
-- Josh, Minneapolis

Attendants: A Glossary of Who's Who in the Wedding Party

Who knew planning a wedding would be akin to staging a major Broadway production? To help out with your co-directorial debut, we've prepared a cross-section of the wedding day cast of characters. (Keep in mind that most roles can be played by either gender, and by as many people as you want.)


Best Man

This guy acts as groom's valet (personal aide and advisor) through all stages of wedding buy wedding dresses planning. He's a fashion consultant, bachelor-party master of ceremonies, and commander-in-chief of the groomsmen brigade. His duties include (but aren't limited to): getting the groom to the ceremony on time; giving the wedding officiant his/her fee after the ceremony; signing the couple's marriage license; and holding the bride's wedding ring at the altar. He also is famous for his toasting skills and dancing savoir faire.


Bridesmaids

Trustworthy gal pals and female family members who form the bride's entourage (and ostensibly work well together). They are a support team for the maid of honor, helping with pre-wedding tasks when asked (addressing invites, making bridal shower favors, planning the bachelorette party, and more). Bridesmaids are often expected to hit the dance floor running and play surrogate hostesses to guests.


Candle Lighter

In some Christian ceremonies, pre-teens aged nine to 12 light candles at the altar just before the mother of the bride (see below) is seated. Candle lighters may dress like the wedding party or not. Your choice.


Father of the Bride

In traditional wedding circles, this guy fronts most of the cash -- that's no small feat. In addition, brides' dads have picked up additional to-dos along the way. Dad's chores might include airport duty, coordinating maps/directions to the wedding site, scouting potential wedding reception venues, doling out tips to wedding day staff, and a variety of toasting and hosting tasks.


Father of the Groom

He used to get away with fading into the woodwork, but nowadays he's suited up for action. In terms cheap wedding dressesof cost contribution, the groom's dad traditionally pays for a few major items, notably the rehearsal dinner. He might also fulfill numerous dancing, toasting, and "manly" obligations (i.e., escort elderly women, move tables, address problematic service). It's nice, too, if he checks in with the bride's dad occasionally to offer moral support.


Flower Girl/Child

Wee ones aged three through eight who walk down the aisle before the bride, scattering flower petals from a basket (or carrying a pomander). Little ladies are the norm, but cute little boys can fill this role, too. Most flower children sit with their parents after completing their stroll.


Groomsmen

A posse of male family and friends who assist the groom in planning and preparing for the big day. Their chief responsibility? To help the best man plan and pay for the bachelor party and to support the groom. It's also common to have groomsmen do double duty as ushers, leaving their posts in time to process with the rest of the bridal party.

A Muslim term for male family or friends who help prepare the groom for and participate in the wedding. Among Moroccan Muslims, it's common for the hattabin to propose to the bride on the groom's behalf.


Honor Attendants

Maid/Matron/Man of Honor

In general, the maid of honor heads up the bridal shower and handles numerous wedding day details, which might include toasting the bride and groom, signing the marriage license, adjusting the bride's train at the altar, holding her bouquet during vows, and collecting gift envelopes at the reception. She also should help the bride get dressed, taking care to frequently remind her that she looks beautiful. She is the last bridesmaid to walk down the aisle before the bride, holding the groom's wedding band on her thumb.


Mother of the Bride

The mother of the bride may serve as wedding planner, guest list moderator, traditional reception hostess, fashion critic, and cheerleader.

Mother of the Groom

Officiant

The cleric or city official who performs the marriage ceremony. Examples include a priest, a rabbi, a minister, or a justice of the peace.


Pages

Young boys (or girls) aged six through nine who carry the bride's extra-long wedding gown train (think of Lady Di's wedding) as she walks down the aisle. Also known as "train bearers."


Ring Bearer

"May the road rise up to meet you,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
And may you be in Heaven
a half hour before the devil knows you're dead."

* The moon is pretty on the waves, the stars are pretty on a bright night, shop wedding dresses but neither stars nor moon are half so pretty as my darling.



* Though I had a share in the lands of India, the silks of Persia, the gold of Peru, I prefer the lad I love, and shall stand true to him… To the Slender Lad I will trust myself, mother, and to tell you true; I shall leave wealth to misers, and trust myself to him who is the flower of the shire, with his white face and his yellow hair, and in his cheeks are two roses -- happy is the girl who sleeps the night in his arms.


Some good news for the sentimental Irish bride, groom, or wedding guest:
If you feel a little tear in your eye, a little lump in your throat, and a little too shy or emotional to give an eloquent speech or recitation, you can fall back on the always-appropriate "Slainte!" ("To your health" in Gaelic.) If you're lucky enough to be Irish, chances are you don't need a poet to speak for you -- you've got that Blarney-blessed tongue. Use it in good health.

Groom To-Dos: 12-Month Checklist

Are you dreading (or maybe craving) a night of lap dances and tequila shots? Do you trust your best man to plan the perfect stag night, or would you like the chance to throw in your two cents about your bachelor party preferences? How about the guest list -- do you have a say on who's coming to your bash?
Set Your Limits

There really aren't any hard-and-fast rules about planning the bachelor party. After all, buy wedding dresses we're talking about an event that could take you anywhere, from a swanky steak dinner to a sweaty lap dance. With that kind of range, it's hard to create fixed precedents, so if you want to have a say, go right ahead. If you know your best buddies are planning a event that you can't deal with (for fear that your fiance wouldn't walk down that aisle with you afterwards), tell them before your party crashes and burns. Likewise, if you've always longed for one last wild night before marriage, let your best man know what's on your mind.

If you know your best buddies are planning a event that you can't deal with, tell them before your party crashes and burns.
Let it Ride

But make sure you're not too involved. Do you really want to have to deal with organizing your own party? The details (hiring the limo, making reservations) can be a hassle. Let your best man and brother-in-law know your thoughts about the event itself, then sit back and let them do the dirty work. One caveat: You can adopt a laissez-faire attitude, but make sure you're still the one who draws up the guest list.
Tame Tensions cheap wedding dresses

For your last bash as a bachelor, you'll want to avoid inviting anyone who might kill your buzz. This shop wedding dresses includes testy relatives you barely know, that frat brother who was relentless during hazing, and any other annoying acquaintance you've always politely endured for the sake of the crowd. In other words, your bachelor party is too important to sacrifice for the sake of being P.C. Likewise, make sure there's no one missing from the list -- coworker, squash buddy, bookie -- that you just couldn't party without.
