This Guy Proposed With 16 Dogs, So All Other Boyfriends Can Just Go Home

RYP_LM_Proposal-021.jpg

SO. MANY. PUPPIES. If your dream is to roll around in a big pile of dogs, you’re about to be so, so jealous. When this guy recently popped the question, he brought on the puppy love by proposing with 16 (yes, 16) adorable dogs. Pack it in, boyfriends of the world—you’ll never be able to top this proposal, photographed by Rebecca Yale.

When Maurice asked Laura to take a quick impromptu hike with him up Runyon Canyon before getting drinks with friends one evening, she didn’t think anything of it. “The guy surprised me with a 5K-race on a date night six months into the relationship,” she said, so the easy, supposedly spur-of-the-moment jaunt didn’t seem all that out of the ordinary. That is until they rounded the top of Runyon Canyon where Laura was met with a trail of rose petals. “It wasn’t until I saw the rose petals that I knew it was more,” explained Laura. “Like, a lot more.” Yeah, you can say that again…

There, Laura and Maurice were met with an a cappella choir who began belting out The Little Mermaid‘s “Kiss the Girl,” as Laura began (very understandably) freaking out. Maurice dropped down to one knee and popped the question with a gorgeous pear-cut engagement ring. Then, came the moment every girl dreams of: Release the dogs!

As Laura said her tearful yes, 16 doggos suddenly appeared, excitedly running around Laura and Maurice. This was the final surprise Maurice had prepared for this so-perfect-we’re-crying proposal—the release of a pack of pups, courtesy of Pack of Hearts, to congratulate his new fiancée with sloppy kisses. Because dogs > doves, obviously. “I can’t imagine anything more magical,” said Laura.

Princess Eugenie Reveals Her Scoliosis Scar

Shortly after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement, Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie, revealed that she was also engaged to her longtime love, Jack Brooksbank. The two wed on October 12 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle (yes, the same venue as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex), where Eugenie revealed her Peter Pilotto wedding dress and a sentimental surprise.

The gown’s dipped back intentionally showed off Eugenie’s scar from a childhood scoliosis operation. “I’m patron of [the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Appeal] and I had an operation when I was 12 on my back,” she explained to ITV. “It’s a lovely way to honor the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this,” Eugenie said of her choice to reveal the scar on her wedding day.

Every Bride Should Own Priyanka Chopra's $30 Wedding Lipstick

GettyImages-966467376.jpg

Raise your hand if you want to steal every last detail of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s recent wedding in India. Yep, we figured. Between the bride’s multiple custom wedding gowns, the opulent decor, and the couple’s towering wedding cake (they had to cut it with a sword!), there was plenty to be inspired by. Sure, some aspects of the five-day affair might be a little out of reach—like the horses and fireworks, for instance—but there are some wedding-day details that are well within reach. For example, you can scoop up Priyanka Chopra’s wedding lipstick for only $30.

We’ll go ahead and say it: Every bride should own Priyanka Chopra’s wedding lipstick. For Chopra and Jonas’s Christian ceremony, the bride complemented her long-sleeve, high-neck Ralph Lauren wedding dress and 75-foot veil with a berry-hued lipstick. Chopra’s bridal makeup artist, Yumi Mori, revealed on Instagram that the lippie is none other than Marc Jacobs’s Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in Boy Gorgeous—and boy, is it gorgeous.

The berry-fuschia color is a bold choice, yet not jarring—feminine, yet anything but demure. Bringing a flush of color to Chopra’s lovely face, it highlights her oh-so-in-love glow and mile-wide smile. With its universally flattering shade, Marc Jacobs’s Boy Gorgeous might just be the perfect wedding-day lipstick. The formula itself is long-lasting, promising up to 10 hours of wear (meaning it can take you from the ceremony kiss through the last dance at your reception), and is packed with nourishing ingredients that keep your lips hydrated and the color from flaking.

The rest of Chopra’s wedding makeup came courtesy of Marc Jacobs as well, with the brand’s O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer ($49, available at Sephora) and Shameless Foundation ($46, available at Sephora) also making up this bride’s beauty arsenal. But we think if there’s one product brides should steal from Chopra’s big day, it should be her totally-kissable lippie shade. Snag it here at Neiman Marcus for $30.

A Multi-City Honeymoon Guide to Seoul, Tokyo, and Osaka

GettyImages-838039606.jpg

Why have one honeymoon when you can have three? Honeymoon hopping through multiple cities allows you to see it all—and with your new spouse at your side! Besides, after dozens—nay, hundreds—of wedding planning decisions, we’d understand if the thought of narrowing down your destination to just one spot might push you over the edge…

For wanderlust newlyweds who want more than just umbrella drinks and chaise loungers (but those too, please!), consider a multi-city honeymoon through Seoul, Tokyo, and Osaka, Japan. With an otherworldly liveliness, towering cityscapes, cultural charm, and luxury offerings, it’s impossible to be bored in these three Asian cities. In fact, we suspect you won’t ever want to leave.

Seoul

See ya, Paris. Bye, Bora Bora. You’ll probably be the first of your friends to honeymoon in far-flung Seoul, and while it might not be the first place that comes to your mind when you think of honeymoons, its historic sites, romantic hikes, and mouthwatering cuisine make the city without-a-doubt worthy of a post-wedding vacation.

Where to Stay

Courtesy of Conrad Seoul

It’s your honeymoon, so live it up in luxury at Conrad Seoul. The lavish property boasts 434 spacious guest rooms, including 50 suites, overlooking the Han River and Seoul skyline. Obsessed with your new monogram? If you score one of the executive suites, expect to see it embroidered on the guest towels at turndown. And each room is outfitted with a bedside control panel, making it possible for you to control the lights, blinds, and more without ever getting out of bed—a major honeymoon perk!

Where to Eat

When you manage to drag yourself out from the seclusion of your room, try some (or all!) of the breakfast offerings at Conrad Seoul’s Zest restaurant, an open concept kitchen that features buffet cuisines from Korea, China, the Mediterranean, and the West. Treat yourself to a high-end traditional Korean meal at Siwhadam, where the seasonal menu is always changing, there’s occasional live music, and each dish is almost too pretty to eat. Also stop by the Gwangjang Market where you two can share street food bites, like tteokbokki (a spicy stir-fried rice cake) and the so-fresh-it’s-still-wriggling San-nakji octopus (for brave newlyweds only!).

What to Do

Getty Images

Seoul is surrounded by mountains, meaning you can hop on the subway and head out into nature for a romantic hike, and be back in the city center in time for dinner. Hike hand-in-hand up the 262 meters of Mt. Namsan. At the top, you’ll find breathtaking views of the Seoul skyline, the gorgeous greenery of Namsan Park, and the N Seoul Tower observatory. You and your spouse can even celebrate your marriage by adding your own lovers lock to a surrounding fence. (See? Who needs Paris!) Oh, and don’t forget to stock up on those famous K-Beauty products for yourself and your bridesmaids in Myeong-dong, a district known for its countless skin-care shops.

Tokyo

After your stay in Seoul, hop on an easy two-hour flight to Tokyo. With robot restaurants, cat cafés, ceremonious tea houses, and centuries-old temples, there’s no place quite like Tokyo. Here, you can embark on a heart-pounding adventure with your love—and get in some serious relaxation, too.

Where to Stay

Courtes of Conrad Tokyo

Sleek and sophisticated, Conrad Tokyo sits in the bustling Shiodome district and the luxury accommodations couldn’t get more personal here. Download the Conrad Concierge through the Hilton Honors mobile app) to start customizing the details of your stay before you even step foot inside the hotel. (Bride and groom-decorated cupcakes delivered to your room? Done.) The softest pajamas are provided at turndown—just think of the cute Instagrams in your matching pj’s—and be sure to share a soak in the luxurious in-room tubs. Guests can also book bespoke in-room tea and wine tastings, as well as traditional treatments at the on-property Mizuki Spa.

Where to Eat

Reserve a table at Conrad Tokyo’s Kazahana restaurant, where exceptional Japanese cuisine is served with a side of gorgeous views of the Royal Hamarikyu Gardens. And you can’t go to Japan without snacking on some sushi! But why just eat it? Schedule a sushi making class at the Tokyo Sushi Academy, so you can show off your new skills later at your first newlywed dinner party. Have a couple of artisanal cocktails at Bar Trench, a small, dark, and moody spot. And a bowl of ramen is also a must. Head to Ramen Kamuro, where you order via machine before slurping down your warm bowl at the counter.

What to Do

Getty Images

Meiji Shrine is a serene, cultural spot located in a 200-acre forest right in the middle of Tokyo. Enter beneath the 40-foot-high torii gate and wander among the greenery before entering the shrine itself, where you can leave your wishes tied to the prayer wall. For a more fast-paced adventure, brave Shibuya Crossing (the busiest intersection in the world) hand-in-hand, explore the colorful fashion and rainbow-hued food of Harajuku’s Takeshita Street, and experience the bustle of the Tsukiji Fish Market. You won’t want to leave Japan without also partaking in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Book an experience at HiSui Tokyo.

Osaka, Japan

Getty Images

Only a speedy bullet train away from Tokyo is the city of Osaka. If Tokyo is Japan’s Manhattan, than Osaka is its Brooklyn. Think: cheaper prices, approachable and friendly residents, and cool new bars, boutiques, and more. With its easygoing and down-to-earth vibe, it’s quickly becoming one of the top tourist destinations in country.

Where to Stay

Courtesy of Conrad Osaka

With the lobby on the 40th floor, the elevator at Conrad Osaka opens to jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Osaka cityscape. The sweeping bird’s-eye views continue in all 164 luxurious room and suites, at the expansive indoor pool, and in the Conrad spa. The concierge make it a priority to familiarize themselves with their guests before they even step on the property for the ultimate in personalization, so you can expect to be greeted with romantic music playing, rose petals on the bed, a bottle of bubbly, and a candlelit bath in your honeymoon suite. Now, this is what honeymoon dreams are made of… And after the stress of wedding planning, be sure to make time to unwind at the property’s spa with a “Blissful Moment in the Sky”—a customized set of spa treatments, taking place in a treatment room that also overlooks the city. Can we just live here?

Where to Eat

Conrad Osaka’s KURA Teppanyaki & Sushi restaurant is like a dinner and a show all in one. Book a teppanyaki dinner for two and watch your private chef prepare your seven-plus-course meal—which includes mouthwatering Wagyu beef—right at your table as you take in the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Be sure to also munch on a casual dinner of Japan’s infamous (and did we mention delicious?) street food in nearby Dotonbori. With towering digital billboards and pulsing lights, this area of the city calls to mind the lights of Times Square and is teeming with hundreds of food stalls where you and your love can get your grub on. Be sure to give the takoyaki (doughy balls of minced octopus, tempura scraps, pickled ginger, and green onion, topped with a savory sauce and dried bonito flakes) a nibble.

What to Do

A short walk away from your hotel lies the Ohatsu Tenjin Shrine. Also known as the lovers’ temple, it’s dedicated to Japan’s own Romeo and Juliet, Ohatsu and Tokubei, and visitors can write their wishes for their success in love and marriage on wooden plaques—called ema—that bear the images of the star-crossed lovers. One of Japan’s most famous landmarks, Osaka Castle, is also located nearby, offering fantastic photo ops, a museum, and a viewing platform. If you have time to spare, you and your spouse can hop on a bullet train and spend the day in neighboring Kyoto and Nara. There, you’ll find the stunning golden temple of Kinkaku-ji, the Arashiyama bamboo forest, and Nara Park, which bears over 1,200 friendly (and sacred!) deer you can pet and feed like an IRL Snow White!

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's Wedding Sounds Nothing Short of Epic

GettyImages-1028931016.jpg

It’s happened! Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have married and we couldn’t be happier for the pair—or more excited to fawn over every single detail of their epic wedding weekend. From the A-list wedding guests (sadly, Meghan Markle didn’t make it!) to the bride’s gorgeous custom Ralph Lauren wedding dress, here are all the details from Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s wedding.

After reportedly obtaining their marriage license back in November, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied the knot on Saturday, December 1, with the big event (and we mean big) taking place in India. The far-flung wedding destination shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, considering that it’s where the bride’s family hails from and was also the location of Chopra and Jonas’s engagement party in August. “Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love,” the 25-year-old groom wrote alongside a romantic Instagram pic of himself and Chopra at their engagement celebration. Now, Chopra is no longer a future Mrs.—she’s a bonafide married woman!

As reports previously indicated, the celebrations took place in a stunning palace. (Hey, what did you expect after the actress’s bridal shower in Tiffany & Co.’s flagship New York City store and a bachelorette party in Amsterdam?) The over-the-top locale, Taj’s Umaid Bhawan Palace located in the Blue City of Jodhpur, is the primary residence of the Jodhpur royal family, contains 347 rooms, and features both a museum and a full-service hotel.

Getty Images

For such a grand venue, the bride needed a breathtaking wedding dress to match and she found it in the Ralph Lauren wedding dress she donned for the ceremony. Her groom wore Ralph Lauren—as did the rest of their bridal party!

Also as previously predicated, it seems that the wedding featured a beautiful blend of cultures. “They really want to blend wedding traditions from both of their cultures that are important to them,” a source told Us Weekly back in the planning stages. “Priyanka is having a really good time planning the wedding because it’s a mix of Indian and American styles and customs, which she knows so much about.” Taking place over three days, the wedding featured both Christian and Hindu marriage ceremonies.

The rest of the Jonas Brothers also played a role in the wedding festivities with the groom’s brothers, Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, and younger brother Frankie Jonas, scoring groomsmen spots alongside actor Jonathan Tucker and Chopra’s brother, Siddharth Chopra. Paul Kevin Jonas Sr., the Jonas family patriarch, officiated Saturday’s Christian ceremony, where the couple exchanged wedding bands by jeweler Chopard.

Meanwhile, the bride’s besties were also on hand for the big day with guests including Sophie Turner. Unfortunately, Meghan Markle wasn’t in attendance. (We’re sure she at least sent a gift!)

We can’t wait for more details of this epic event to be revealed.

Fitbit Ionic: adidas edition

It’s no secret that the Duchess of Sussex is the queen of fitness. “My health, my state of mind, the feeling you have after a workout; all of this things drive me to step onto my mat or go to the gym,” she previously told Women’s Health. “Sometimes the idea of working out sounds absolutely dreadful, but I always remind myself of how good it will feel afterward. Euphoric, almost.”

She added, “Running has always been my form of moving meditation, which I relish because it allows me to get out of my head.” While we’re not sure it would go with her engagement or wedding ring, we could still totally see Markle jogging around Kensington Gardens with a Fitbit on her wrist. Gift this one to fitness-minded friends—it’s loaded with on-screen workouts, and can track your heart rate, sleep patterns, and workouts, play music, sync with your iOS and apps, and so much more.

Priyanka Chopra's Wedding Dress Will Look Like This, According to These Bridal Designers

image1.jpeg

If there’s anything that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s engagement has taught us, it’s that this bride-to-be has some serious style. At her bridal shower (at New York City’s flagship Tiffany & Co., naturally), Priyanka Chopra rocked a flirty white column gown from Marchesa, featuring a skirt full of feathers. And at her bachelorette party in Amsterdam, she donned a fun beaded white mini dress with a dramatic feather cape by Georges Chakra. With pre-wedding outfits as cool as these, Priyanka Chopra’s wedding dress is bound to be gorgeous.

With the wedding reportedly taking place in an actual palace in India—Taj’s Umaid Bhawan Palace, to be exact—will Priyanka choose a gown just as grand as her royal venue? Will the actress go with a white wedding dress, or will she honor her Indian heritage by choosing a frock in a different hue? Maybe she’ll even take inspiration from her BFF Meghan Markle’s minimalist royal wedding dress. We can’t help but imagine what Priyanka Chopra’s wedding dress will look like. And, as it turns out, we’re not the only ones.

Our favorite wedding dress designers have also been dreaming of what Priyanka will walk down the aisle in to wed her love. We asked them to choose one gorgeous gown from their collections that they think is perfect for this beautiful bride. Here’s what Hayley Paige, Reem Acra, Lela Rose, and others think Priyanka Chopra should wear on the big day.

Do you think the Quantico actress will end up wearing something similar to these wedding dresses at her upcoming nuptials? We can’t wait to see!

16 Wedding Hairstyle Ideas for Brides With Bangs

rachael-and-jeronimo-wedding03.jpg

Talk about fringe benefits! Bangs demand attention and the women who wear them can’t help to make a, well, bang wherever they go—especially when it’s down the aisle. We love a bride with bangs, so we rounded up this collection of wedding hairstyle ideas just for ladies with face-framing fringe.

If bangs are your signature look, there’s no need to start growing them out the moment that engagement ring is slipped on your finger. Sure, bangs are a bold look, but they’re undeniably chic, trendy, and even a little bit edgy. And luckily, there’s a layered look to suit every face shape, hair type, and personal style. Whether short and blunt, long and wispy, or sweetly side-swept, hairstyles with bangs are practically limitless. And as far as wedding hairstyles with bangs are concerned, the options are just as endless.

An undone updo with soft fringe is effortlessly romantic. Meanwhile, smooth side-swept bangs and tons of volume is a totally glamorous look. Textured and tousled bangs and a floral accessory tote major bohemian vibes. And brides can go for modern elegance with a classic chignon, accented with wispy strands.

no thumb

While it’s the norm for bridesmaids to buy their own dresses and accessories, it’s a super-thoughtful gesture for a bride-to-be to ease the financial burden and choose less expensive dresses for her ‘maids. But before you say, “Cute and affordable? No way!” take a look at these fun, fashionable, totally adorable bridesmaid dresses that are all under $100. (Yes, really!)

You don’t have to sacrifice style for a great price, either: From a lavender flouncy frock from Modcloth to a modern black jumpsuit from David’s Bridal, we’ve scoured the bridesmaid ensemble scene for the most fashionable and affordable outfits around. You’ll adore the array of on-trend hues; fabrics like lace, eyelet, and chiffon; and the variety of playful necklines (deep-V or off-the-shoulder, anyone?) and hemlines these stylish bridesmaid dresses sport. And your girls will love the fact that these dresses are cute enough that they really, truly will want to wear them again.

Stella McCartney Launches Her First Bridal Collection, Stella McCartney “Made With Love”

no thumb

Back in May, Stella McCartney helped make Meghan Markle’s wedding day dreams come true with the elegant high-neck reception dress she designed for the now-duchess. Now, it’s your turn: Stella McCartney is about to make all your bridal fantasies a reality, too, with the launch of her first ever wedding dress collection, Stella McCartney “Made With Love.”

Renowned for her legendary evening dresses and bespoke designs, Stella McCartney is making her official grand entrance into the world of bridal with today’s launch of Stella McCartney “Made With Love,” her new collection of wedding dresses and bridal pieces, perfect for modern brides who crave clean silhouettes and sleek details.

“I wanted to design pieces that would be comfortable and special and have a strong emotional attachment, but still make you feel like yourself,” Stella McCartney exclusively tells Brides. “So when it came to designing ‘Made With Love,’ I thought it was important for the name to feel more personal and loving and reflect the experience and feeling of that special day.”

“Having been a bride myself and being honored to have been asked many times to do wedding gowns for some of my dear, close friends; it’s something that I feel very passionately about and is very close to my heart,” she explained. “I think that in this day and age the wedding day is something very different to how it’s traditionally perceived, and I think that the house of Stella McCartney really represents something a little more effortless.”

And these wedding dresses are truly effortless. Think unfussy silhouettes, the sultry surprise of an open back, and modern attached capes.

This new collection isn’t just filled with frocks, by the way. It also features a sophisticated ivory tuxedo and lace embroidered jumpsuit for bold, unconventional brides or those looking for a second outfit for their wedding after-party. Dance floor, here you come.

“There’s also a personal message inside each garment to stay with you forever,” hints Stella McCartney, who has designed each piece with a sewn-in blue tag, toting a sweet message from McCartney herself. “Something blue and something new,” she explains. How special is that?

The 17-piece Stella McCartney “Made With Love” collection is available at select retail partners including Nordstrom, as well as in Stella McCartney stores by private appointment.

See some gorgeous looks from the Stella McCartney “Made With Love” collection below. Love what you see? You can book a bespoke bridal experience here in one of nine Stella McCartney U.S. stores.

Amy Schumer Is Pregnant With Her First Child

no thumb

Just eight months after shocking us all with the news that she secretly tied the knot with husband Chris Fischer, Amy Schumer has yet another surprise announcement to make: She’s pregnant! Schumer just revealed that she and Fischer are expecting their first child together, and she shared the news in a particularly progressive way.

Instead of announcing her pregnancy on her own Instagram account, Schumer shared the news on the Instagram Story of Jessica Yellin of News Not Noise in a post aimed to endorse congressional and gubernatorial candidates in the November midterm elections.

“I’m not in the business of making voting recommendations, but these are the recommendations of Amy Schumer, one of the most consistent and earliest supporters of News Not Noise,” Yellin said in a video on her Instagram Story. “Now read all the way to the bottom, you’ll see there’s some news down there. Congratulations, Amy.” Next popped up a list of Schumer’s recommended candidates, and at the very bottom read her baby news: “I’m pregnant-Amy Schumer.” Head to Jessica Yellin’s Instagram Story to check it out!

Schumer teased the news herself on her own Instagram page, sharing a photo of pregnant Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, with her and her husband’s faces super-imposed over theirs.

Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer tied the knot back in February of this year with a secret celebrity wedding for the books. The nuptials took place in Malibu with several of Schumer’s celebrity friends in attendance, including Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Larry David, and Judd Apatow. The ceremony, which was officiated by comedian John Early (in drag!), overlooked the ocean and the bride donned a floral tulle wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier for the occasion.

Since the couple had been reportedly dating for just a few months before saying their I dos, the Trainwreck actress posted a note to Instagram clarifying that, no, she was not pregnant, and that she and her new hubby request donations made to Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence, in lieu of wedding gifts.

While she wasn’t pregnant at the time of her nuptials, looks like these two now really do have a baby on the way! Congratulations!
