To capture her amazing, candid reaction to the big question, our friends at bridal jewelry retailer Robbins Brothers and photography company Paparazzi Proposals have teamed to offer special pricing on proposal planning and engagement photos. Through the partnership, Robbins Brothers is offering its engagement ring customers exclusive pricing on any Paparazzi Proposals Package. Several future grooms have already taken advantage of the packages.

Want to take your wedding day look to the next level? Enter the Wonderbund, a reversible tuxedo cummerbund that’s “business” in the front and “party” in the back (just like the infamous mullet ‘do), for the groom and groomsmen. Perfect for the ceremony, one side of the Wonderbund is traditional black satin. When it’s time to cut a rug at the reception, it flips over to reveal a variety of fun patterns, such as a gold-encrusted “Champ” wrestling belt, American flags, mustaches, lobsters, sharks and more. Go ahead now, show off your wild side.

san francisco bike route proposal

Strava: It’s not just for tracking your running and biking routes anymore — at least not for one user who used the app to propose to his girlfriend in San Francisco. Years from now, he’ll tell his children and grandchildren about how the rain was pouring down on him as he rode through 40 mph winds to complete the route. Of course, a quick Google search will tell them that weather conditions were ideal: 75 and sunny.

Ever wonder how certain strange wedding traditions — such as freezing the top tier of  your wedding cake, wearing something borrowed or carrying the bride across the threshold — first came about? So do we. HowStuffWorks explains some of these bizarre traditions (seriously, what’s up with trashing the dress after the big day anyway?) and breaks down their origins.

Who needs frivolous sporting equipment like water skis when you can rip it up with your own two feet? We’ve all heard about the hard-core bad-asses who can “barefoot” on water, but in this case, seeing is truly believing. Check out these epic barefoot skiing tricks caught on video courtesy of USA Today, and shamefully consider yourself a lesser man.

c5 beer pong tables

If you’ve followed this blog in the past, you know our affinity for beer pong. Over the years, we’ve seen some pretty bad ass new products. However, we’ve never seen anything like the new table designs from C5. Chicago-based C5 is the new kid on the pong block and we think they’re here to stay.  Their uniquely designed tables are constructed of seamless Poplar wood that’s given a natural finish to enhance tone and grain. LED lighting illuminates opposing triangle formations for a perfect rack, every time. Professionally powder coated table legs bring a full of color palette to room’s aesthetic. Finally, the rear hidden compartments unhinge revealing a perfect storage space for all your beer pong cups & balls! From their founder, “The C5 Custom Beer Pong Table is designed to transcend dark closets and pull beer pong out from under the bed and into the center of conversation. The new stylistic element introduces the “skeet-shot” and is changing how, when, and where beer pong is being played.

podium reality web series

A New York based production company is looking for charismatic toastmasters to feature in its new series, PODIUM. The series celebrates the art of oration in all its myriad forms. One category we are excited to feature is wedding toasts, with several episodes exploring what makes a toast truly unforgettable. If you know someone who will be giving a wedding toast in the coming months — be it best man, maid of honor, or parent of the bride/groom — and you think it has the potential to be great, nominate them now.

One of our favorite non-wedding blogs to follow is Uni-Watch on ESPN.com. While they normally cover news & trends in the world of sports uniforms, today they featured an NFL themed wedding that gives new meaning to the term “mixed marriage.”
