Happy Is the Bride the Sun Shines On

The traditional folkish saying that our business name is based on is also the title of a book written by Leslie Jones and published by McGraw-Hill. You can see more information about this book at their web site, Happy Is the Bride the Sun Shines On.

The book is a great coffee table addition chock full of folklore surrounding weddings and bridal traditions. Here is a snippet of the description from their site.

Far beyond the well tread "something borrowed, something blue" and typical bridal bouquet toss, there are hundreds of lesser known but fascinating customs and beliefs that play a special role in weddings worldwide. Happy Is the Bride the Sun Shines On is a charming collection of unique nuptial traditions and superstitions.

From the excerpt available on, it seems to be equal parts history, folklore and anecdotes. I very much want to carry this book in our store, not only because the name matches our domain, but because it's exactly the right fit for what we want to sell.

I'm putting it on my to do list. But until I find a supplier, be sure to get the best price from one of the links above. You can also find the book on GoogleGoogle Book Search.

Skin Care - Wedding and Honeymoon Skin Care - Skin Care

Proper skin care preparation for your big day and honeymoon is very important.

I confess: I spent more money on skin care and cosmetics than I did on my wedding dress. Before the big day, I couldn't pass a drugstore skin care display or department-store cosmetics counter without picking up some version of what a doyenne of beauty once called 'hope in a jar.' The habit got so expensive, I probably should have registered for skin care and cosmetics at the Chanel counter instead of sheets and towels at Bed Bath & Beyond. And on my wedding day, I was wearing so much eye makeup (they tell you to glop it on for the wedding photos), I could barely blink without stinging tears falling to my cheeks. Fortunately, everyone assumed it was the emotion of the moment, rather than the irritants in the mascara, that choked me up.
