During the holidays, I don’t know what gets popped more—Champagne bottles or the question (you know the one—it starts with “Will” and ends with “you marry me?”). If you’re kicking off 2008 with visions of towered cakes and rehearsal dinners (or if you’re prepping to be a bridesmaid/groomsman or wondering what to wear/bring/say on a friend’s big day, or hey—maybe you just love weddings), welcome to Bridal Party, a new Washingtonian.com blog on everything wedding. You probably still want to hire that planner, but you can turn to this blog for:
• What’s new in wedding fashion (for women and men) • Tips on how to make your wedding affordable • Wedding professionals’ answers to your questions • Advice for members of the wedding party, such as how to deal with a too-stressed bride or give the perfect toast • Stories about wacky Washington weddings and cute area couples • Engagement announcements
That’s just a taste of the many posts to come. If there’s a topic you’d like to read about, send ideas to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just leave a note in the comments section.
