Location, Location—Location? (Operation Newlywed)

Wedding on the Beach

Long before Jason and I got engaged, back when we were still discussing the "maybe one day" possibilities of tying the knot, both of us agreed upon one very critical thing: We had absolutely no idea where we'd eventually throw a wedding. Many couples still feel strong ties to their hometowns or want to get hitched in... read more

Real Wedding of the Day: Adrienne & Justin

Today we're feeling some fabulous preppy details, and Adrienne and Justin's seaside wedding is a model for doing the nautical theme right. To set the stage, they chose a classic New Jersey yacht club and followed a crisp navy-and-white palette (with pops of yellow blooms). Details like striped ribbons, hemp rope and anchor designs were... read more

Real Wedding of the Day: Callie & Kris

Rustic formal... Nope, not an oxymoron. Take it from Callie and Kris' Texas ranch wedding: You can have both, and yes, it totally works. The couple started with an outdoor ceremony, complete with an iron-cross backdrop, covered hay-bail seating and of course bridesmaids in cowboy boots. Then the tented reception space took it up a... read more

Multicultural weddings rock! They're a wealth of varied inspiration, opening all our eyes to new ways of approaching the standard setup. Mukti and Nat started their wedding day at home with an intimate Hindu ceremony in the morning, then exchanged rings in front of their reception guests following the cocktail hour that evening. As for... read more

Real Wedding of the Day: Arly & Ryan

As much as we love some over-the-top reception decor, ceremonies need love too, people! Take Arly and Ryan's custom backdrop they had made for their outdoor service. Even though the ranch setting was gorgeous enough on its own, this church-like wall added an unexpected (and an awe-inspiring) twist. > See more photos from... read more

Real Wedding of the Day: Bonnie & Matthew

Let's face it: Not much is cuter than a Southern military wedding. Bonnie and Matthew's Charleston shindig featured cotton decor accents, a soft yellow palette, lawn games and a menu of barbeque and sweet tea -- making us obsess even more. > See all the photos from this gorgeous wedding! read more

Happy Earth Day, Knotties! On a day dedicated to the Great Outdoors, we couldn't help drooling over some scenic shots, and Liz and Dave's preppy Missouri wedding is about as lush as it comes. > See all the photos from this beautiful wedding! read more
A stylish exit is the exclamation point to a great wedding day, not to mention your last chance to drive home your personal style. Take full advantage of this opportunity.When it comes to your getaway transportation, get creative: Drive away in a vintage car decorated with bright flowers; toss your hair into the wind on a moped; or jump into a sleek, stylish sports car. And don't forget that "Just Married" sign.
