Planning Tips

You'd never plan your wedding at work (cough cough, nudge nudge) — but your lunch break is a whole other story. To help you maximize efficiency and make the most out of your "me time," we've rounded up the wedding planning ideas from across the web that we're totally obsessed with this week. For your weekly roundup, we wanted to share with you our favorite bridal beauty advice, new wedding dress workout ideas, and a few helpful other helpful tips for every bride-to-be.

Location, Location, Location
Picking the right venue for your wedding might be one of the the hardest decisions a bride and groom make when it comes to the wedding planning journey. Are you having a destination wedding? Or are you opting for a hometown bash? Conde Nast Traveler's list of the most beautiful wedding venues in the U.S. is sure to help find the ideal spot for your nuptials — or maybe seeing all these gorgeous locales will make it even harder to choose? Oops!

Because Practice Makes Perfect, Right?
Every bride wants to make sure their wedding day goes off without a hitch. Lucky for you, we created this handy dandy list of the 10 things you should practice before your big day. These are the details you will be happy you tried out long before you debut them at your wedding — promise.

The OTHER Avocado Toast
Stuck in an wedding diet rut? We totally get it, sometimes it feels like all we eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is some form of avocado toast. That's why we're obsessed with Bon Appetit's latest recipe: the toast to make when you just can't bare to eat another avocado. Can someone just make this for us right now, please?

Working for the Wedding
Shredding for your wedding? The fitness gurus over at SELF shared four workout moves that our favorite Hollywood mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen does to stay in kick-butt shape! So go ahead, and take a break from that barre or spin class, and try out these new moves to help you rock that wedding dress.

Pucker Up
We know you all can't wait until that moment you hear "you may now kiss the bride," but, er, what about your lipstick? You don't want it to smear all over your groom! We're loving Glamour that shows you Glamour's roundup of five wedding-day lipsticks that won't smudge or leave a mark on your brand new hubs.
