One of the joys of working here at OurWeddingDay.com is that everyday is someone's wedding day. This means that while others are plugging away at their boring 9 to 5, we're celebrating the fact that another blushing bride has pulled off her dream wedding and we were able to have a small part in that.
So you can imagine the excitement when about a year ago my older sister, Tycely Williams, asked me to be her Maid of Honor at her wedding (this past November 8th).
I realize I'm partial, but it really was the most beautiful wedding I've seen and to know she planned every detail of the entire weekend herself, made me exceptionally proud. After all this I've learned, "never underestimate the power of a bride." She even remembered to sing Happy Birthday to our 94-year-old grandmother at the reception.
I wonder which of the Williams sisters will be next to walk down the aisle?
It's that time of year again when you wake up early the day after Thanksgiving and shop till you drop. Black Friday is just about here and it's a great time to pick up some items you may need for your wedding.
Cake toppers, favors, decorations and more can be found at many arts and craft stores for much lower costs, and most stores will offer their sale items on the store website... while supplies last.
Will you be bargain hunting this Black Friday? What time will you be waking up?
The age-old debate rages on: Does planning a wedding on or around a holiday enhance both celebrations, or are they overly-inconvenient for guests?
Some would say that since family and friends are often scattered around the country (and world!), that planning a wedding around a holiday may save travel expenses, since many guest could be flying to be with their families anyway.
Others argue that it ends up being too much to coordinate, and that weddings unfairly take the focus away from what "should" be celebrated at that time.
And still others go the more diplomatic route, ans say "it depends!" It depends on which holiday it is, how elaborate the wedding, how far away the family...

After a series of unsuccessful pseudo-thrillers and sap-heavy romance dramas Sandra Bullock is back in her full 1990's glory.
Sandy is at her best when she sticks to extremely predictable romantic comedies, which is exactly what it looks like we'll be getting with her new rom-com The Proposal.
Co-starring Ryan Reynolds, The Proposal, a story about a pushy book editor who forces her assistant to marry her in order to avoid being deported to Canada. When the government investigates, she and her assistant are forced to spend the weekend with his parents in order to sell the lie.
Can we call how this movie will end? Absolutely. Will we be in theaters opening weekend? Oh yeah.
The Proposal, in theaters June 12, 2009.
It's almost Halloween!
More and more couples are tying the knot on holidays lately, and we're not only talking about Valentines Day here.
We've seen some pretty fabulous Halloween weddings over the years. Some couples go the silly or spooky route while others downplay the goth angle, but they always seem to have a wonderful melodramatic flair.
Check out some fun Halloween Wedding cakes after the jump, and tell us what you think about holiday weddings!
This Friday is August 8th, 2008. Just like the 7th of July was a "hot" day to get married last year, so to is this Friday.
Even more so in fact, since the number "8" is pronounced similarly to the way "good fortune" is pronounced in Mandarin and Cantonese. That is one of the reasons it was chosen as the start date for the Beijing Olympics this year, and one of reasons more people than ever planned it as their wedding date.

If you're getting married this Friday, you've probably already encountered busier-than-usual churches and reception sites, as well as over-booked vendors.
If you're not planning your wedding around a "special date," you may wonder what all the fuss is about, but plenty of non-superstitious people enjoy all the good luck they can get on their wedding day.
What do you think? Are you implementing any good luck charms (from a carefully-chosen date, to checking the weather in the Farmer's Almanac) into your planning?
On August 8, 2008 the opening ceremony will kick off the start of the Olympic games in Beijing with more than 10,000 athletes competing from 200 countries. But athletes won't be the only people making memories on 8-8-2008. It's estimated that more than 8,000 couples will tie the knot in China on this day which is traditionally considered lucky in Chinese culture because the date "sounds" like the word for wealth.
Will you be tying the knot on 8-8-2008 or know someone who will? Share their story and post a good luck wish for the couple below.
You can visit the official website for the 2008 Olympic games HERE or read more on this story HERE.
Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross impersonators Ralph Achbold and Linda Wilde will tie the knot on July 3, 2008 at Philadelphia's City Hall in honor of Independance Day and their love. The colonial impersonaters and their wedding party will be decked out in period costumes for the ceremony. As long as guests don't throw British tea at the revolutionary couple I think it's safe to say it will be a match made in history. Click HERE to read more.
