Nick and I went back and forth for a while about what we wanted the groom and groomsmen to wear, not because we didn’t agree but we just weren’t sure. Initially, we had ruled out tuxes as stuffy and formal, but once we went to a few places we realized a lot of tuxes look […]

So, I’m going to get into a subject that I’m sure many brides-to-be are already thinking about — getting in shape for your wedding day. I’m no expert on the subject, but I know what works for me so I thought I would share it. I’m sure that we all could share some great tips […]
