Maggie and Peter Finally Marry!

It’s true – they took the plunge! According to reports from People magazine, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard finally got married on May 2 in a beautiful chapel in Brindisi, Italy. (By the way, Italy seems to be the newest wedding hot spot for the stars. Take for example Salma Hayek choosing to host her lavish celebration in Venice just a week or two prior.) With all of this jet setting by the stars, I wouldn’t be surprised to see more and more couples trekking to distant locations to exchange their vows.

Maggie and Peter

While many people saw this coming for quite some time, as Maggie and Peter have been together for over seven years and have a two year old daughter, Ramona, we’re still delighted to finally get to celebrate the occasion. This small and intimate affair was shared with forty of the couple’s closest friends and family, including star couple Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal, in a fairy-tale setting that is classic of Maggie’s style. Not to mention, the low profile affair was a refreshing departure from the opulent weddings that so many Hollywood couples choose. Now if only we could see the photos…

Married On Myspace

Married on Myspace Logo

Do you love social networking?
How about enough to make it part of your wedding day?

Married On MySpace is a new reality video series that will chronicle one couple’s journey to their wedding day, with MySpace members driving much of the decision-making in planning the event. From flowers to the gown, this couple is putting the decision making power in the hands of the public.

So how exactly does Married on MySpace work?

The process starts with couples submitting videos to MySpace and users voting on who should be featured. Once that has been determined, MySpace users vote on other aspects of the event, like selecting what the bride and groom wear, where they celebrate their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and the wedding location. But besides voting, there are plenty of other activities for MySpace users to enjoy on the site. Feel free to participate in forums, comment on the couples, and sign the guest book.

In all, there will be 13 web episodes of Married on MySpace, culminating in the selected couple’s wedding day. Right now, we’re down to three couples!

So let us know, what do you think of Married on MySpace? Would it be something that you would try?

Dare to Be Different on Your Wedding Day

Weddings, though always beautiful, can seem a little bland for the adventurous bride. To keep your cravings for something different at bay, here are several great ideas on how to incorporate something unique as part of your wedding plans.

Socially Aware Receptions
Instead of focusing on just you and your hubby to be, look instead to do something good for the world. Allow for your guests to send donations to a good cause instead of giving a wedding gift or sending flowers.

Non-Traditional Bouquets
What do buttons, seashells, wood, cloth scraps, chains, crystals, metallic wires, feathers, and tissue paper have in common? All of these materials are becoming popular as accent elements in wedding bouquets. Whether you choose to construct your floral arrangements using just these elements or decide accenting your current arrangements with these innovative materials is a better bet, your bouquet is sure to be a hit.

Bridal Blogging
Techie girls can rejoice! Bridal blogging is growing in popularity, especially as more and more people turn to the net to get their nuptial planning inspiration. Share your experiences on an online blog to give your guests an even more intimate look at your special day or just to share some advice with fellow brides who may just be starting out with their plans. Don’t be afraid to ask questions of your readers, share photos and videos, or review your different vendors. Either way, it’s a fun an interesting element to add to your wedding (and a good way to share the juicy details on the dress, the flowers, and the favors!).

Winnie Ties the Knot!

Danica McKellar

Danica McKellar, the famed actress who played Winnie Cooper on the hit TV series “The Wonder Years,” has recently tied to knot to longtime beau Mike Verta, a composer. The two began dating in 2001 and became engaged last August in Chicago.

According to her rep, the two exchanged vows in front of 150 people at an ocean-side church at sunset in La Jolla, California. (This intimate ceremony sounds simply romantic!) She walked down the aisle to wedding music composed by Verta and performed by members of the San Diego Symphony.

“We wanted an intimate, formal event,” said McKellar, who wore a mermaid-style wedding gown and tiara by Renee Strauss. Following the wedding, the couple and their guests enjoyed a lovely dinner and danced to a 10-piece band during the reception at a private club. Even the first song was special, as it was composed by Verta and performed by McKellar’s uncle, Kim McKellar.

Besides being the beloved Winnie, McKellar is also an accomplished mathematician, graduating summa cum laude from UCLA and authoring two best sellers: Math Doesn’t Suck and Kiss My Math.

Congratulations to the lovely couple!

Wedding Colors We Love: Cobalt Blue and Yellow

Blue and Yellow Wedding

In springtime, there’s nothing better than having a gorgeous outdoor wedding, however, by choosing a dynamic color scheme, you can bet that it’ll be even better. This season, keep your eyes out for daring color combinations, like cobalt blue and yellow, that are making wedding days stand out.

Inspired by blue skies and yellow sunflowers, a cobalt blue and yellow themed wedding is ideal for couples who want to make statement but still keep a sunny feel to the special day. To incorporate this theme, here are a two ideas on how to best utilize this unique color combination:

A Seaside Setting
As popular colors found in many beachy themed events, cobalt blue and yellow can help to incorporate a very clean, crisp, and laid back feel into your wedding day. To tie in the theme, you can always choose beach or sailing inspired décor, menu items, and invitations. Decorate your tables with sea glass, shells, or coral that stands out against your dramatic blue backdrop. Just be sure to remember the Beach Themed Wedding Favors!

Inspired by Nature
Nature is often a great source of inspiration, especially for seasonal weddings. To incorporate your daring color scheme, think about using white, ivory, bold yellow, or light blue florals that tie everything together. Daffodils, chamomile, daisies, forget-me-nots, chamomile, Queen Anne’s lace, orchids, or sunflowers are all excellent choices.

Gorgeous Table Centerpieces – Sans the Flowers!


Centerpieces can oftentimes be a huge anchoring point in a reception area, especially if you’re one who loves to make a statement with bold, beautiful arrangements that are packed with personality and can be delightfully over the top. However, if you’re looking to make even more of a statement, think about using non-traditional centerpieces that still pack a punch, without using expensive blooms. Here are three great ways.

Nothing is more classic or elegant than a bowl of strategically arranged fruits. If you’re celebrating your wedding in the autumn, channel the harvest and use bright bowls of green, red, and yellow apples, squashes or nuts to draw in your color schemes. In winter, think bold berries and go for something more delicate, like bud vases with sprigs of holly decoratively placed around your table. In the spring and summer, think citrus and use lemons, limes, and grapefruits to make up your centerpieces.

Another great way to make a non-traditional centerpiece is to use your Wedding Favors. Yes, this can be a gorgeous way to display the takeaways that guests love. Simply place or arrange your favors on a three tiered cake stand, in a basket, in a bowl, or other fun containers to add some style and flare to your table.

Who doesn’t love sweets? Instead of serving up cake, think about having your centerpieces be dessert by displaying decadent chocolates, cookies, mini cakes, scones, pastries, or truffles for your guests to enjoy. Trust us – this’ll be a hit!
