For wedding planning, oftentimes the guys can get left out. However, when it comes to getting gifts, don’t forget your groomsmen. What better way to show the wolf pack your appreciation for standing with you on the big day than with a unique keepsake. Coming up with gift ideas for your pals can be a bit tricky compared to the seemingly endless options available to brides. Don’t worry. We have you covered. While cools socks and cuff links can be great gifts, don’t be afraid to go for something different showcasing your personality or those of your friends. When shopping for your groomsmen gifts think more outside the box.
Being named a bride’s maid of honor is not only an amazing privilege, but also a huge responsibility. As her maid of honor, the bride is trusting you to help her with navigating the stressful process of planning the wedding. It is your job to unload some, but not all, of the tasks from the bride. Here are a few of the major duties you’ll be expected to help out with. Click here to read the rest of this post »

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON SPRING 2015 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE
Liz & Vinnie ~ March 22, 2014
Pediatric cardiology fellow Liz met Vinnie, an applications engineer, at a bar on St. Patricks’s Day, when neither was out searching for love: “We both had gone out in our rattiest clothes, ready to just have fun with our friends,” Liz recounts. In the tradition of their first encounter, Vinnie’s proposal, offered to Liz at the top of a mountain they had just hiked in the pouring rain, was less than glamorous affair. But their wedding at Discovery Green’s The Grove made up for all that, done up as it was in gold, glitter and blush, against a backdrop of chic, sleek cream and navy. For her special day, Liz wore not one, but three knockout gowns, including a shimmering vintage halter-neck sheath with a stunning draped back. And a very special day it was for the bride and for her mother, whose recent kidney transplant meant that she could fully enjoy the festivities. “I thank God every day fort the selfless gift of organ donors,” says the grateful-and gorgeous-bride.
