2. Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana
3. Brandy and Ryan Press
4. Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock (fun fact: his step-mom is Reeba McEntire!)

7. Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez
8. Shakira and Girard Pique
9. Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita
10. Aaron Paul and Lauren Corrine
Congrats to these cute couples!! Here’s hoping they have incredible weddings in 2013!!!
Lately Miley Cyrus has been surprising us over and over again. First she declared that “she can’t be tamed,” then she got engaged at the tender age of 19, then she went and cut her signature long locks and bleached them blonde. So it would be no surprise if she and her 22 year-old fiance Liam Hemsworth tied the knot without letting us know. So the question is did they? Well the answer is: we’re not sure. As you can see in the picture above, Hemsworth is seen rocking a dark band on his wedding finger during a cute photograph with Cyrus and their pooch. Miley is also seen wearing a diamond band with her Neil Lane engagement ring.
Maybe they were just trying them on to see if they fit? Either way, both were photographed the next day without their new bands. We’re guessing that this was all for fun and that their wedding day is right around the corner. New Years anyone?
A new trend in weddings that we have been noticing lately is cupcake wedding cakes. Cupcakes as a wedding cake? Whodathunkit. Well it’s not as crazy as you might think. Cupcakes give the bride and groom the option of having more than one flavor. Now who doesn’t love options? Continue reading
It’s stressful planning a wedding. Like really stressful. And a wedding can be really expensive. So when you want your big day to look like a million bucks without costing a million bucks, DIY –Do It Yourself– projects can save you the need to worry about choosing what you want at your wedding. Plus if you DIY you can get the whole bridal party involved and make it a bonding experience!
Here are some ideas that you could do for your centerpieces. All of them you can DIY and the supplies you need can be found at any local craft store, Target, Walmart or Dollar Store (yes you read that right, I said Dollar Store)
This centerpiece is beautiful, simple and affordable. The wine glasses, base plate, flowers and candles can be found at the Dollar Store. This entire centerpiece will cost you under $15 to put together. It’s amazing how simple yet beautiful this centerpiece is.
This is another great centerpiece that is very affordable and easy to make. For this one all you need are pebbles, flowers, different size vases, water and floating candles. A centerpiece like this could cost anywhere from $25-$40 to make, depending on where you buy your supplies. This would look beautiful in the center of a table with flower petals strewn, with the lights dim and the candles just floating at the top. You can even simplify this more by just filling the vases with water, adding the candle and tying a ribbon around the vases in your colors. The possibilities are endless!
If you have a little wiggle room in your budget to spend a little more on centerpieces, than this would be a great option for you. An old fashioned lantern with a beautiful candle inside and flowers around it would make a stunning centerpiece. A centerpiece like this could cost you between $50-$75 depending on how big your lanterns are.
These are just some examples of DIY centerpieces. There are so many options when it comes to doing it yourself. It’s amazing what a little time and creativity can achieve.
