Multi-Stone Engagement Ring
Multi-Stone RingThe center of this stunner is actually made up of nine smaller diamonds set in the most eye-catching combination -- it looks just like an emerald-cut stone. The look is just as extravagant, but not quite as costly as one standout stone.

Loosely Curled Updo
For a formal look that’s not too stuffy, have your hairstylist keep the curls soft and loose (go too tight and you risk the Shirley Temple affect -- yikes!). Finish it off with fresh or crystal flower hair pins.

Skincare TipsSkincare Tip: Don't Use a Washcloth
Here's a secret most dermatologists will tell you: Don't use a washcloth on your face. According to Amy Wechsler, MD, a psychiatrist, dermatologist and author of The Mind-Beauty Connection: 9 Days to Less Stress, Gorgeous Skin and a Whole New You, washcloths can carry bacteria. Instead, use just your hands.

My bridesmaid wants to wear her dress before my wedding. I'm so annoyed!

Q. My bridesmaid wants to wear her dress before my wedding. I'm so annoyed! Is that normal for bridesmaids and am I overreacting???

Take it as a compliment. Nice work choosing a dress your friends actually like -- so much that they want to wear it right away! In terms of etiquette, there’s no rule in the books about wearing the dress before the day, but it’s fair to say that it was meant for your wedding and shouldn’t be worn before then.

 

Can we just announce our engagement by emailing guests a link to our website?

Q. Is it okay to announce our engagement by emailing guests our wedding website? 

In a word, yes. While you don’t want your close friends and family to find out about your engagement via a website (it seems cold and impersonal), it’s perfectly fine to let everyone else find out when the save-the-dates roll in or they hear the news from someone else.

Q. My mom is throwing us a surprise engagement party but she’s not paying for dinner or drinks -- tacky?

Here's the deal about engagement parties... they can be anything from a backyard barbecue to a full-on cocktail party. So even though bites and booze aren't going to be free, at least your mom is organizing a time where everyone can be together to celebrate your newly engaged status.

1. RufflesPronovias

This fun and flattering trend is even making its way to cakes and décor details at weddings. I love how the frothy, airy ruffles are twirled together to create movement in the dress.
