Destination Weddings are more affordable than many engaged couples realize, according to WEDtalk, available exclusively on the new travel site Vacation

NEW YORK, July 20, 2017 /The average age of engaged couples is on the rise and so is the average cost of a local wedding in major U.S. cities. That's why nearly 25 percent of engaged couples today are choosing a destination wedding, according to Vacation (www.vacation.com) a new travel site centered around the emotional reasons why people travel. These couples discover that the costs and convenience of a destination wedding is equivalent to, or less than, that of a local wedding, especially when many of them are already settled into their careers and may no longer be living in the same state as their childhood friends and family.

WEDtalk is a new podcast series designed to help couples navigate the complex process of planning their honeymoon and/or destination wedding. WEDtalk, a tool to help couples weigh their options from the moment they consider walking down the aisle overseas or at any domestic destination away from home, makes the decision-making process easier by answering common questions engaged couples tend to have.

First in the WEDtalk series (http://bit.ly/2uz6H3g), available exclusively on Vacation, is a conversation with a newlywed bride about why she found it to be more cost-effective to have a destination wedding versus a local wedding. The cost savings available with a destination wedding are addressed, and listeners learn why more couples than ever are choosing to travel for their wedding.

MISSION, Kan., June 14, 2017 -- (Family Features) First comes the proposal then comes the wedding planning. There are dozens of decisions that need to be made before it's time to walk down the aisle, which can be overwhelming for brides and grooms.

To help make it less stressful, these tips from Macy's can help couples through the entire wedding-planning process, from on-trend apparel and accessories for the entire wedding party to all the essentials to create a perfect registry.

Dressing the Ladies
When it comes to bridesmaid dresses, the mix-and-match approach is trending in popularity. Start by deciding on a color palette, such as lilac, champagne and petal pink. Then have each bridesmaid choose her favorite style within that range of hues. Bring it all together by choosing a uniform look for makeup, shoes and accessories. There is no better time to thank the ladies than the morning of the big day. A few thoughtful gifts can go a long way, such as matching robes, tumblers to stay hydrated throughout the day and cosmetic cases to stow makeup essentials.

Wedding Registries Continue to Be the Most Popular Way to Purchase a Gift; Cash, Honeymoon and Charity Registries Also Top Gifting Options

NEW YORK, July 11, 2017 -- The Knot, the number one wedding resource and marketplace, today released the results of The Knot 2016 Wedding Guest Study.

These costs include everything from the wedding gift, attire and accessories, to travel and accommodations.
As guests are spending a large amount to attend each wedding, they prefer to gift something the couple really wants. When it comes to purchasing the gift, the study shows the wedding registry continues to be the most popular place to select a gift, with 37% of wedding guests and attendants purchasing a gift directly from a registry. Cash and check are also popular gift options, with nearly one-third (29%) of guests gifting money in the form of cash or check. One in ten (10%) wedding guests and attendants give a gift card, and 7% contribute funds to the couple's honeymoon.

What do you think of when you hear “high school dance”? Boys on one side of gym; girls on the other. No dancing… just plain awkwardness. In order to prevent that horribleness from happening at your school, we’re giving you the ins-and-outs of planning a fantastic high school dance. So read up on these 6 easy steps and make your Homecoming, Court-Warming, or Sadie-Hawkins dance the highlight of the semester!
1. Form a Committee
Gather the troops, because you’ll need help to pull off the best dance your high school has ever seen! Your school may already have a committee elected for just this kind of thing. But if not, you’ll want to find anywhere between 5-10 volunteers. Get your class officers involved and be sure to have one person in charge of delegating tasks to the rest of the team.
Consult with the teachers or faculty in charge of helping with the dance and make sure to include them in all your decision making along the way. Ask your faculty advisor or your student body treasurer about the budget for your social events and remember to refer to it as you plan!

They say in radio that having too much dead air is the one of the biggest mistakes you can make, and the same is true while performing music onstage. The more time you spend standing up there with no music or crowd engagement happening, the less interested the crowd will be, and the more uncomfortable it'll get for everyone.

Awkward silences can occur during a set for any number of reasons. Most often, they're the result of one band member having technical difficulties and trying to fix the problem as the rest of the group stands around waiting for them. Or perhaps your frontman just isn't particularly comfortable onstage and has trouble finding things to say in between songs.

Regardless of the reason, any silence that occurs onstage needs to be filled as quickly as possible. Below, I've come up with a list of my four favorite methods to fill awkward silence onstage.

Fashion shows are a great idea for groups trying to fundraise for a cause, organize community events, or to promote local fashion designers and businesses. The key ingredients to a good fashion show are a general theme, a well-coordinated team, and a well-designed program. It is important that you come up with a plan for your show: theme, location and date, music and decorations. You will also need to organize a team of people to run the show: designers, models, hair and makeup stylists, show coordinators, and lighting and sound professionals. All of these people need to work together to make your plan succeed. Finally, you will need to come up with a detailed program of featured designers, order of models and styles, and music and lighting.

Part 1 | Putting Together a Plan for a Fashion Show

Decide on a theme. All fashion shows are centered around a general theme.
A theme could be fall fashion, beach fashion, lingerie, or costumes.
Alternatively, the theme could focus on a particular color or fabric.
The music, lighting, and decorations will have to go along with this theme.
If you are doing the fashion show as a fundraiser, you might pick a them in line with your cause.
For example, if are doing a fashion show to raise money for a breast cancer charity, you might choose to showcase the color pink.

Decide on a budget. If you are coordinating a fashion show to raise money for charity, you may want to keep costs as low as possible.
See what kind of money you can expect from donations. You can use these funds to defray the cost of a fashion show.
Decide on a price for ticket sales. These will be the primary means of getting a profit or money for a charitable cause.
The price of tickets should be enough to cover costs of the show plus enough to reach a desired profit or donation goal.
You might see if local designers and professionals will volunteer their time and services for the show to offset some of the costs.
