16 Things Not To Do When Attending a Wedding as a Plus One

New York Cliché

I was a plus one at a wedding this past weekend. Let me impart the wisdom of what I learned NOT to do if you want to be a good wedding date!

1. Over pack

Keep it to one carry-on if at all possible.

2. Wait until you’re on the plane to reveal your fear of flying


3. Dress inappropriately

Unless you’re Serena Williams and you’re crashing a beach wedding.

4. Be clingy

“No! Please! Don’t leave me alone for one second!!!”

5. Live tweet

6. Gossip about bridal party fashion choices

If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all (unless your date brings it up first).

7. Wax poetically about your dream wedding

Keep that shit between you, your bffs, & Pinterest.

8. Flirt with groomsmen

9. Rigidly adhere to an obnoxiously restrictive, voluntary diet

Wedding Tips

Although the summer season of weddings has slowly waned, the fabulous fall and winter ceremonies are on their way, and we have 10, stellar tips to help you plan your special day!

1. Give in to the chaos
No matter how much planning and triple-checking you do during the months (or years) prior to The Day, it’s almost silly to think there won’t be a single thing that goes a little off-key. And that’s okay! Let it go; ride it out and roll with those punches. As long as there are two “I Do”s, that’s really all that matters. Your day will go much smoother if you embrace the chaos and choose to enjoy every little moment of the day, even if they weren’t planned!

2. Write thank-you notes as gifts come in. Do not get behind, unless you want to spend your honeymoon crafting odes to the…

A Sneak Peek of Our Favorite Trends From Our LA Couture Show!

Why Weddings?

Someday Morning

Before I dive into to all of the crazy wedding posts and trend talk, I figured I would share a little bit about what lead me to this obsession.

I have always loved the idea of being an event planner, but it wasn’t until this spring that I decided to start pursuing it. In February, the student-run public relations and advertising agency at OU put on a small networking conference with professionals from several big-name agencies in the industry. Our faculty advisor tapped me to help coordinate scheduling and other details.

The conference was a big hit and I had such a good time in my role that I wanted to explore how I could do more. I knew a family friend nearby had her own event planning company, so I reached out to her for some guidance as to where to go next. To my amazement, she offered to let…

Debra Fried Northfield on Top Wedding Trends for 2015

Planning Your Dream Wedding With Expert Debra Fried Northfield

As one of the country’s preeminent wedding professionals, Debra Fried Northfield is often asked about the future of weddings. Here are some wedding trends she foresees for the coming year.

Debra thinks that weddings will be smaller. Many couples want less crowded and more intimate affairs. They would rather spend money on a honeymoon or on a house down payment than on a wedding.

Debra Fried Northfield on 2015 Weddings Will brides opt for smaller weddings in 2015?

Along with the smaller wedding trend, Debra thinks more brides will want to do some of the hands-on wedding work. Brides want to customize their weddings so the ceremony and the reception reflect the bride and groom’s personalities. Brides may want to arrange their own flowers, for example. If they’re handy with a needle, many brides may customize their off-the-rack wedding gowns. They can embellish these gowns with colorful extras such as sleeves, colored belts and beadwork.
