Top 4 Most Notable Celebrity Weddings of 2018

Leave a comment

As we enter November, most of us get ready to wrap up 2018 and step into a whole new year – and the wedding world is no different.

Truth be told, 2018 was an amazing year for weddings – so we thought we would compile a list of the top 4 most-notable “tie the knots” of the year:

  • The Royal One. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot in May – and oh, what a stunning affair that was! Meghan looked absolutely flawless with her barely-there makeup and her low-key wedding dress – and the entire wedding was truly royal in terms of guest list, décor, and vibe. There’s just nothing we didn’t fall madly in love with looking at this wedding!
  • The Romantic One. It’s not that the Royal Wedding wasn’t romantic (on the contrary), but Kate Upton’s Big Day was really the material of dreams. She and Justin Verlander got married in Tuscany. She wore a lace wedding dress that was downright breathtaking, and her lovely bridesmaids wore blush pink dresses – just what you’d expect a traditionally romantic wedding to look like. Perfect in every way!
  • The Glamorous One. Sofia Vergara’s wedding gown made us add her wedding to Joe Manganiello to this list. Their entire wedding was glamorous by definition – and the bride’s dress (signed by Zuhair Murad Couture) was breathtaking in so many ways that it cannot even be described. If you’re looking for inspiration for your own glamorous wedding, this celebrity wedding is where you should look at first!
  • The Surprising One. Every now and then, we hear about celebrity weddings that are more than just surprising – they happen truly out of the blue, with no notice whatsoever, and yet they still charm our hearts with pure magic and romanticism. This is the case with Emily Ratajkowsk and Sebastian Bear-McClard, who got married after only a few weeks of dating (although they had known each other as friends for years). The were married at New York City Hall, with Emily wearing a $120 Zara trouser suit and announcing her marriage in true Millennial fashion…on Instagram.

1 Comment

There’s nothing like a comforting drink on a cool winter day – and if you plan on having your wedding during the cold season, you definitely want to bring this kind of cozy atmosphere into your Big Day.

What are some of the best southern drinks perfect for a fall or winter wedding? We have some ideas for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Southern Comfort. This drink can be mixed with a variety of juices (we’d try cranberry juice, since it’s the season for it). Ginger ale and cola are also good mixes for this particular drink. It doesn’t get more Southern than it, and with the right mixes, you can turn it into a really great cocktail for your fall or winter wedding!
  • Butterscotch hot chocolate. Let’s face it: who doesn’t love to snuggle with a cup of hot chocolate under their noses when it’s cold outside? If you want to make it a little more “fun”, you can always mix your hot chocolate with a good whiskey – it will make for something that’s not just a hot drink and not just a cocktail either, but the perfect mélange between the two. Your guests are bound to love this!
  • Hot cider. If you want to serve a hot drink that’s alcoholic (and not necessarily chocolate-based), hot cider is the perfect option. There are a thousand and one ways to mix this with the right spices and even with other drinks, so you will definitely find a cocktail that suits your particular taste. Guests will love the warmth of the drink, the aroma, and the pure taste of “winter” only apples and ciders can bring with them. This option will be a winner from the very beginning!
  • Mulled wine. Another drink essential for the cold weather, mulled wine is an all-time favorite across different countries and states. Everyone has their own recipe – apples, oranges, and even cranberries can be added to a mixture of red wine, cinnamon, and other spices to create a drink that’s truly flavorful and comforting. People will love it so much!

  • Pumpkin and acorn squash soup. What could be more comforting than a bowl of delicious, warm soup on a chilly fall evening? Your guests will definitely appreciate this for a variety of reasons: it will warm them up, it will give them energy for dancing, it will add spice and color to the menu, and it will perfectly complement the entire fall wedding theme.
  • Pumpkin seeds. Want to provide guests with a healthy and delicious snack to munch on? While popcorn may be a very popular choice, roasted pumpkin seeds can be equally great – you can even buy them in bulk and then invite guests to grab a cone of them to munch on while catching up with long distance relatives.
  • Pear and pumpkin tart. Nothing beats a Southern tart – and especially not during the fall, when tart fillings are so abundant. If you want to surprise your guests with something that will taste quintessentially Southern, yet unique at the same time, provide them with a pumpkin and pear tart.
  • Pumpkin roll. If you are looking for a dessert every single guest will love, this is it. There are so many varieties that it is impossible not to find one that’s actually suitable for you (and your guests): chocolate chip, cinnamon, cream cheese, and so on. It’s a delicious sweet treat bound to be appreciated by everyone – so you really can’t go wrong with it.
