If there's one celebrity whose an exemplar of stunning red carpet style, it's Naomi Watts. And if there's anything we've learned from her countless fashion successes, it's that this girl looks good in aisle-worthy gowns. Take her blush, shimmering sequin Jason Wu shift that hits just below the knee and has an open back from last night's New York premiere of St. Vincent, for example. This glistening, soft pink-hued dress, with on-trend geometric detailing, modern cutouts, and a no-fuss straight-cut silhouette, is prime for emulating at your reception or rehearsal dinner. Case in point: There are plenty of recent runway looks similar to Wu's stunner on Watts.

Here, ways to get Naomi Watts's gorgeous blush sequin sheath for yourself.

Vera Wang: If there was one detail the bridal design standard played with this past season was contrasting sections of diagonal ruching. Each area crashed into one another creating a wildly playful three-dimensional, geometric effect that also worked to flatter. The ruched ivory and nude tulle mermaid not only features similar lines along the bodice, but warmer hue too.

Rivini: This sparkly Rivini mermaid mirrors a few of Watts's most striking elements: Sequins embedded throughout the gown, striped vertical details, and a high neck. Then one fun addition to this dress, though, is it's on-trend illusion neckline.

Naeem Khan: Sure, it's not blush and the details run horizontal rather than vertical, but the gilded stripes on this Naeem Khan number offers a similar finish: a warm-toned, sparkly striped detail that adds both shimmer and dimension to an otherwise simple silhouette. Oh, and this dress sports the beloved illusion neckline, too!

Ready to Party Like It's 1999? Listen to Our Ultimate '90s Wedding Playlist

Let's face it: The '90s were filled with some of the most divisive, and yet, most catchy pop songs. You definitely had feelings (whether they be positive or negative) toward "MMMBop", but you certainly know how to dance to it! The hip-hop, pop, and novelty songs from that not-so long ago decade are some of the best wedding dance songs you can play today.

Case in point: Celine Dion's era-defining theme song for Titanic, "My Heart Will Go On." It's cheesy, sure, but it's also wildly romantic and filled with nostalgia for love on the high seas and young Leonardo DiCaprio. Even if you and your groom don't want to share a slow dance to it, you and your bridesmaids can share an emotional dance-circle moment. Other tunes, like Boyz II Men's classic "I'll Make Love to You" are simply too good to not make a moment out of! Throw in pop hits like Britney Spears's "...Baby One More Time" and House of Pain's "Jump Around," and we have little doubt that people will be literally grooving the night away.

Sure, you don't have to play exclusively '90s music, but for those "gotta get on the dance floor ASAP" moments, you really can't go wrong by sprinkling in at least a few. Take a listen to our curated Spotify playlist, which features the aforementioned songs and many more, to hear exactly what we're talking about. Sit back, click play, and enjoy!

That time Kanye sent us a bottle of champs. #kanyewater #bobonbourbon #hugekimfan @kimkardashian

Kanye West had a lot of practice planning and having a wedding this year, and now, he's sharing his wedded bliss. On Saturday, he gave a bachelorette party the surprise of a lifetime!

Bride-to-be Siobhan DePietro was having a dinner with friends at Galatoire's in New Orleans when the group spotted West and some pals dining at the same restaurant around midnight.

Jess Kingsbery, one of the bachelorette party attendees, told E! News that, being big fans of the rapper, they asked a waiter if they could send his table a bottle of wine. What happened next, then, must have made them really happy — West flipped the script on them and sent the ladies a drink instead!

"The waiter brought it over and said the champagne was compliments of Mr. West and his party," Kingsbery told E!. "It was so crazy, we could not get over it."

To put the proverbial icing on the cake, West then offered to pose for a group picture. In some Instagrams posted by the women, he's seen smiling and chatting.

DePietro's friends even asked about his marriage to Kim Kardashian. "Married life is great," Kingsbery quoted West as saying in response. That, in addition, to his overall generosity, made for a night to remember for the bachelorette party.

"It was such a fun surprise," Kingsbery said. "He was very, very nice. It was the best night of our lives."

Creative Wedding Favors: What Real Brides Gifted Their Guests

Who doesn't love wedding favors? They're always such a delightful memento, perfectly capturing both the happy couple's personality and the spirit of their ceremony. Planning your own tokens for your wedding guests? Get inspired by these ideas from readers.

"We got married in New Orleans and had a brass band play. After the ceremony, the wedding party came out following the band second-line style, waving the traditional hankie. So, of course, our guests all got second-line hankies of their own as their wedding favors so they could join in the fun!" — Marie P.

"We had a photographer take pictures of our guests as they came into the reception with Mickey by the fire place. We had a Disney wedding. Instead of traditional thank you cards, we sent them a copy of their picture with our thank you written on the back. It is a keepsake that is personally for them. We got so many phone calls from people thanking is for the pictures. Best part is it cost us .22 cents each and saved us from buying a ton of thank you cards." — Cathy G.

"A family friend is a real cartoon artist. He drew my husband and I and made custom wine labels, which we put on a bottle of wine for each guest staying at the hotel. All guests received a wine stopper. My hubby and I are known as the Princess and Hippie, so the wine label depicts him as a deadhead and me as royalty." — Katie M.

"We gave each guest a blank coin to choose one of three charities for us to donate to instead of giving out favors. It involved them and allowed us to do something amazing! They ended up choosing a summer camp scholarship fund!" — Shulamit R.

"We got married in Italy, so we made homemade limoncello for each guest." — Sarah P.

"We had a country wedding, and we made homemade cowboy boot and hat suckers." — Shayna W.

"We had a beach wedding in Thailand, so we gave each of our guests traditional wooden fans and wooden umbrellas to help them with the heat and sun." — Sheridan C.

"I'm getting married Friday, and we will have a wooden crate with dirt in it, surrounded by sunflowers. There will be sunflower packets glued to popsicle sticks and a sign saying, 'Take one and watch love grow.'" — Symantha C.

"Blueberry jam from Maine (where my husband is from and where our wedding was), plus peach jam (for where I'm from). We let our guests pick theirs out." — Torie W.

"We did a CD of our favorite songs and personalized the cover with a thank you note for being a part of our special day." — Kristen G.

"A custom-blend coffee in a stamped cotton pouch. One side had hearts with our initials on it and said 'Love's perfect blend.' The other side had a cappuccino cup and said, 'Thanks a latte.' We also handed out wishing wands to send us off rather than rice." — Mackayla G.

"We gave our favorite cinnamon roasted almonds from the Minneapolis Farmers Market." — Kandace K.

Is It Ever Okay to Snoop Through Your Fianc

Wedding Social Media Trendsetter Tips

Photo: Getty Images

If you've ever had a nagging suspicion that something is amiss with your man, you may have been tempted to peek inside his drawers, briefcase or phone. But even if your worst fears are fact, is it ever okay to snoop through his things to find out?

"No good comes from reading his e-mail, texts or going through his tax returns," says relationship expert and author April Masini. "Don't call his mother behind his back and ask her questions about his prior relationships. And don't stake out his friends, amateur-espionage style, to figure out what he really does when he's with the guys."

Rather, Masini suggests, dig into yourself and your relationship to discover why you feel the need to snoop in the first place. Some reasons include:

Mistrust: "Some people have good reason to mistrust a spouse because they have a history of being misled by this very person," says Masini. "That's a legitimate mistrust. Snooping isn't going to help you with the problem, just the symptoms that are various betrayals."

Your history: "Many women have people in their pasts who have deceived them, and the man they are now married to is not someone who's ever deceived them," Masini says. "But he's getting the fallout from your past. Use the opportunity to heal your past to have a healthier present and future."

You're not honest yourself: "Lots of people project onto others what they do themselves, so if you're someone who is deceptive and isn't transparent with issues, you may think others are doing what you are," Masini says. "If you've got a lot of secret passwords on your e-mail and social media accounts because you're living a private life, you'll probably assume he is, too."

That being said, when you enter a marriage, you do have a reasonable expectation that your spouse will be open and share certain things with you, especially those that include your finances or the details of your legal partnership. "You shouldn't feel that wanting to talk about taxes and money is snooping," Masini says. "Discussing and partnering on taxes, money and legal issues is an important part of your marriage. It's learning about your partner to build a better relationship that includes all realms of life, together."

And if you do slip up and snoop, know it's okay — if you cop to doing it. "It's typical to find the wallet he left in your car, and want to go through it, or to use his computer and notice his e-mail account has been left over, and want to read what's there," says Masini. "What separates 'okay snooping' from snooping that isn't okay is, one, your disclosure after having done it and, two, the rigor and priority you give snooping."

What do you think? Is it ever okay to snoop? Let us know on Twitter at @BRIDES!

Bill Murray Gave a Toast at George Clooney's Wedding! Find Out What He Said

Nick Clooney, George Clooney's father, wasn't the only guest to make a tear-jerking speech at the actor's high-profile Venice wedding to British lawyer Amal Alamuddin. Comedic legend Bill Murray gave what we can only assume was a hilarious and heartwarming speech as well.

During an appearance on the Today show to promote his new film, St. Vincent, Murray answered all of Matt Lauer's curiosities about the star-studded wedding weekend.

"So everyone's just in T-shirts, real casual," he joked about the ultra-glam Italian affair. "It was a lot of fun," he continued. "People were very emotional about the fact that these two people found someone. That really was the great part of the party."

See More: See Amal Alamuddin's Oscar de la Renta Wedding Dress!

He also spoke high-praise about Alamuddin. "She's a real beautiful girl, a great huge heart, and a real humanitarian," Murray noted. "And funny, too!"

Of his speech, he said his remarks were something along the lines of: ""These two ... it's kind of just miraculous that they found each other, because they're so ideal for each other. ... It's liberating, really is liberating to see them alive and in love."

Amen to that! If even one of the funniest men in Hollywood can keep a straight face and speak with all sincerity about this beloved celebrity couple, than you know it's the real deal. It sounds like all of the guests were extremely touched by Clooney and Alamuddin's love, and were eager to celebrate a genuine romance that was long overdue for these two giving and kind people.

In Season Now: More Ways to Use Ferns

Last week, we shared some of the prettiest bridal bouquets featuring lush, textural ferns. But since they're so seasonal, we're spotlighting even more ways to incorporate pretty ferns into the rest of your fall wedding day. From ceremony aisle decorations to even your cake, check out these elegant and creative ways to feature ferns in your wedding.

Ceremony Aisle (above): Tie lush ferns to the chairs along the ceremony aisle with pretty satin ribbon.

Ceremony Backdrop: For an organic and minimalist look, affix individual fern fronds to a blank white wall.

Escort Card Display Stake each guest's escort card in a rustic planter overflowing with ferns.

Centerpiece: Rustic wood planter boxes filled with deep-green ferns are an elegant (and affordable!) centerpiece idea.

Fern Tablescape: For a more elaborate, lush look, display a runner of ferns down the length of the table and also suspend them overhead from chandeliers.

Pedestal Centerpiece: If your reception space has tall ceilings, elevate an elegant arrangement of ferns on a tall pedestal.

Place Setting: Displaying a single fern at each guest's place setting is a great way to bring the outdoors inside.

Cake Table: Decorate your dessert table with a striking wall arrangement of ferns and flowers.

Wedding Cake: A woodland scene of marzipan mushrooms and fresh ferns and berries is the perfect complement to an outdoor wedding celebration.

How to Preserve Your Wedding Dress and Accessories

Your wedding dress, as well as your shoes, your veil, and your bouquet, are treasured items even before you wear them on your big day. Even if you're not planning on wearing or using them again (or passing them down to your daughter), you probably want to save them so they look as pretty as they did on your wedding day! You want to take as much care with your wedding clothing after the event as you did before. Here are some practical ways to store your wedding attire so that it will stay fresh and wrinkle-free for years to come.

Wedding dress: Have an attendant or relative hang your gown up as soon as you take it off. Get it to a professional cleaner who specializes in wedding gowns, particularly in the event of spots or champagne spills. The cleaners will then clean and store the gown in a sealed box or container. Store the box or container on a high shelf in a closet or in the attic.

Bouquet: If your freezer is large enough, store your bouquet inside until you return from your honeymoon. When you return, have it freeze-dried by a florist or dry it yourself by hanging it upside down in a dry place.

Shoes: For cloth shoes, sponge with a cloth and a mild detergent; when dry, put them away in tissue in a box. For leather shoes, polish and store. If tough grass stains are on shoes, have them cleaned professionally, no matter what the fabric.

A Modern Vineyard Wedding in Napa Valley

When a mutual friend wouldn't stop texting Rebecca Leung and Michael Son about meeting up at a bar in 2011, the two finally gave in and found themselves in the same place at the same time. "Our first conversation lasted maybe ten seconds," says Rebecca. "But it made an impression!"

When Michael surprised Rebecca with a proposal over appetizers at Auberge Du Soleil, the pair knew they'd be returning to Napa to say "I do." So on May 4th, 2013, they invited 120 guests to join them at the Carneros Inn for a fresh, colorful celebration planned by Lovely Little Details and photographed by Onelove Photography.

Though the wedding was in a country setting, Rebecca brought a touch of modern glam to her look, choosing gunmetal glitter Jimmy Choo pumps and a J.Crew statement necklace to complement her updo.

Michael wore an Indochino tuxedo, while Rebecca picked a veil by White by Vera Wang.

The bride's mermaid gown, with a swirling tulle skirt and ribbon belt, was by Vera Wang. "My favorite element was the drama on the train," says Rebecca. Her bridesmaids wore peach-hued infinity dresses.

The bride carried a white and cream bouquet of garden roses, calla lilies, freesia, and ranunculus. Her bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets of soft green hydrangeas, orchids, and berries.

"We're both really attracted to modern lines and understated elegance," says Rebecca of her and Michael's wedding-day aesthetic.

The daughters of the couple's friends served as flower girls, walking down the aisle in dresses that looked like clouds of tulle. And they were very serious about their responsibilities! "One of the flower girls spilled her petals a few minutes before the ceremony," says Rebecca. "They were asked to be extra careful and not waste the petals, so they went extremely slowly and barely threw any!"

As guests made their way to their seats, they grabbed green, silver, and gold ribbon wands to wave after Rebecca and Michael were pronounced husband and wife.

Guests were seated at white chairs overlooking the valley. The aisle was lined with peach rose petals, and the altar was flanked by two lush arrangements of peonies, hydrangeas, and roses.

"We put a lot of work into the cocktail hour," says Rebecca. The couple's planner snuck them from the ceremony straight to the cocktail hour so they could see the fruits of their labor before the guests arrived. On the menu? An Old Fashioned for Michael and a Mai Tai for Rebecca.

Though the wedding was in wine country, even Rebecca and Michael's reception was all about the cocktails, starting with the coaster escort cards. Hung on twine, the coasters featured recipes for the bride and groom's favorite drinks on the back.

Inside the Napa Ballroom, guests sat at tables simply decorated with low arrangements and candles. Also on the tables were two of Rebecca's DIY projects, bottles of homemade limoncello and gold glitter table numbers. Centerpieces featured bunches of pastel flowers, including peonies, garden roses, and hydrangeas. "We kept it minimal so that our guests would be able to have a conversation," she says.

A sweets table, topped with a gold sequined cloth, featured macarons, cake pops, and the couple's favorite candies.

The three-tiered cake included layers of raspberry zinger and caramel apple cake. "We kept the design simple," says Rebecca of the cake, topped with fresh pink and peach roses.

Instead of a bouquet and garter toss, Rebecca and Michael acknowledged his Korean heritage with a Paebek ceremony, where they honored their parents, received blessings, and tried to catch dates and chestnuts as a sign of how many children they'll have. "Our guests thought it was hilarious," says the bride. "There will apparently be a dozen!"

Five days after the wedding, Michael and Rebecca went to French Polynesia for their honeymoon. Their favorite part of the day? "Having a few moments just the two of us," says Rebecca. "Couples should definitely spend a couple minutes alone after the ceremony if they can!"

Want to Be a Great Son-in-Law? Take After Seth Rogen (Yes, You Read That Right!)

Seth Rogen and wife Lauren Miller

Photo: Lauren Miller Rogen via Twitter

While funny man Seth Rogen seems like an unlikely source of inspiration when it comes to being a good son-in-law, the actor exemplifies what it means to blend two families. Case in point: Rogen is using his Hollywood status to help raise awareness for his mother-in-law's disease, early onset Alzheimer's.

Rogen married his girlfriend of nine years, Lauren Miller, in 2011 and has been an intimate part of her family — and their battle with Alzheimer's — since that time. In February, Rogen testified before a Senate committee about his family's personal battle with the disease. "I started dating my wife, Lauren, nine years ago, when her mother was almost 54-years-old," Rogen said in his speech. "The first time I met her parents, being the mensch that I am, I was excited to spend time with them and make Lauren think I was the type of guy she should continue dating. It was this trip, the first time I met my now-mother-in-law, that Lauren first admitted to herself, and then to me, that something was off with her mother."

In an effort to help aid families like his own and push for research for the cause, Rogen started Hilarity For Charity, a variety comedy show that will raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's.

"Comedy is 'the something' we're actually capable of doing," Rogen told People. "Because it's such a bummer, we thought it might be nice to, in some way, make it fun for people. It would be nice ultimately to discover a cure. I hope we're able to capture the attention of more young people, and get the disease the type of funding it deserves."

On October 17, Rogen will host the third annual show in L.A. to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. And though he's known for his hilarious films and irreverent stand-up, the philanthropic son-in-law has taken great strides towards bettering the life of Miller's mother — according to Entertainment Tonight, Hilarity for Charity was has already raised $1.5 million for the cause.

4 Life Lessons to Take Away from Wedding Planning

Think wedding planning is all tulle and peonies? Think again. The road to matrimony is paved with poignant moments and important life lessons that every bride should take note of. Here are a few key things you might learn along the way.

1. Anything can be done ... in small steps.
When a bride first begins planning her wedding, the amount that needs to be done can feel insurmountable. "How can I plan a 200-person wedding when I can't even decide which save the date to use?"

The problem here lies in considering what needs to be done in totality, instead of individual tasks. Of course, you cannot make every decision for your life-changing event at once! You can, however, break your to do's into individual tasks and handle them singularly.

It's an important life lesson to remember when challenges or changes seem insurmountable. Marathon runners don't wake up one morning and decide to go for a 26-mile jaunt. Instead, they reach the finish line by training in intervals (and eating pasta... which also may be the fastest route to happiness).

2. Priorities are important.
Unless you're blessed with a Kardashian-sized wedding budget, chances are you've had to learn the word "prioritization" while planning your wedding. It's a process that may seems like the ultimate evil when you're forced to cut back on floral arrangements, but prioritizing is actually a blessing because it forces you to assess what really matters most to you — in your wedding, and in your life. Let your priorities color your choices, and you can't go wrong.

3. People matter most.
Go ahead and call us sappy, but weddings prove time and time again, that what matters most of all is the people you surround yourself with. Even if the cake topples; the rain falls; and the priest stutters, a bride and groom are ecstatic on their big day because they're marrying each other surrounded by their favorite people. It's a fact that extends far beyond the wedding day: life is brighter when you spend your days with the ones you love.

4. Life goes on.
When planning a wedding it pretty much feels like your big day will be the culmination of humanity. When you dedicate so much of your time and effort to something — whether it's a wedding, a career goal or a personal loss — it hard to see past the horizon. Surprisingly, though, the world always keeps turning.

He Said What!? Grooms' Most Clueless Wedding Planning Moments

Grooms Clueless Wedding Planning Moments

From the amount of money it takes to actually throw a wedding to the insane amount of time you have to put into planning it (and let's be real, everything else in between), some grooms just don't get it and frankly never will — even after they're married. We asked a bunch of brides and wedding planners to spill the beans on the cutest, most clueless and often infuriating things they've heard come out of grooms' mouths during the planning process.

"He suggested we could just ask people if they could come or not so we didn't have to bother sending out an invitation. Saves a stamp and we can invite other people instead was his theory. I had to tell him it didn't work that way." — Lauren D.

"I had a groom who didn't understand why we needed bag pipes at the reception. I corrected him ... We needed pipe and drape." — Lynn D.

"He had no idea there were two rings! He thought that there was only the engagement ring and looked at me like I was crazy when I mentioned the wedding band. I had to sit down and explain to him that there were two rings and the wedding band is to be exchanged during our ceremony." — Natalie H.

"One guy said, 'Don't worry babe, worst comes to worst, me and my friends can just go to JCPenney to get our suits the week of the wedding.'" — Jacqueline R.

"A groom wanted to know why we had to rent tables and chairs for every single guest as opposed to asking everyone to eat in shifts." — Veronica C.

"He thought we could basically just send out Facebook invites and that flowers would cost a few hundred bucks. He was so clueless!" — Katie C.

"My now husband was surprised that after the engagement ring and wedding ring, he still owes me a wedding gift. He had no idea that was a tradition." — Andria C.

The Three Traits that the Best Bridesmaids (and Groomsmen) Share

Being in someone else's bridal party is both a pleasure and a responsibility. When you consider which of your closest relatives and friends to include as bridesmaids and groomsmen, think about your expectations and how much you are likely to depend on your attendants — not just at the wedding but throughout the planning and preparation. Think of it this way: Just because Betty is your best friend and confidante doesn't mean she's the gal you want to count on to wrangle all of your elderly guests at important events. This doesn't mean you have to exclude her! Simply remember what matters most from attendants so that you can gently nudge her toward the things that are important. In that light, consider these three fundamental traits for selecting bridesmaids and groomsmen:

Reliability. An attendant should be a person you can count on to stay in touch in the weeks and months preceding the wedding, to listen to instructions, to follow up on requests without being reminded, and to show up on time and ready for all events.

Consideration. Considerate attendants may offer suggestions but will understand that they aren't in charge. They will look for opportunities to be helpful but won't add to the bridal couple's worries with special demands or needless criticism.

Courtesy. In a sense, attendants are ambassadors for the bridal couple and their families. At pre-wedding events and during the wedding reception, they will mix and mingle with guests, make introductions, look out for people with special needs, and behave appropriately at all times.

3 Top Wedding Planners Reveal Their Most Creative Design Details

What takes a wedding from being "nice" to one that your guests can't stop talking about, sharing photos of, and calling "the most beautiful wedding ever?" The details. While good food, friends, and fun still make up the foundation of a great wedding, little personal and design touches can elevate the experience to something that is truly memorable. To help get your creative juices flowing, we asked three sought-after wedding planners to share some of the most unique touches they've dreamed up of for their clients.

See More: 6 Clever Ideas for Your Wedding Gift Table

Letterpress on Velvet
"We designed a fall wedding where the couple wanted a very neutral palette, so my challenge was to figure out how to make a monotone color scheme feel rich, luxurious, and warm. The solution was to play with textures — specifically velvet — which is a very sumptuous material. We trimmed everything in velvet throughout the décor and wanted to bring that theme into the paper elements too. So I actually used letterpress on velvet ribbons, which we then integrated into the escort cards and the invitation suite. Velvet has a great patina that you don't get from paper alone and the mixing and matching of textures added depth, dimension and interest to something that's usually a lot simpler." — Lynn Easton Andrews, Easton Events

Keepsake Guest Booklet
"I designed a small wedding with only 65 guests, so I really wanted the reception to feel intimate and all the guests to feel like they were a part of the wedding. To achieve this, I created a booklet for each guest, which they received at the dinner table. Inside, there was a menu and a diagram of where each person at the wedding was sitting and a little tidbit about who they were and why they were important to the couple. When guests met each other, they already knew something about the other person and it was also a special way for the couple to honor each attendee with a personal note." — Cassandra Santor, Cassandra & Company Weddings

Escort Cards with Significance
"In one wedding, we used the groom's love of timepieces (he's collected many over the years) as inspiration for how we did the seating cards. Guests picked up escort cards that were hand cut into shapes of clocks that were set to a certain time. Each time reflected a moment that was significant in the couple's relationship. Guests would know where to find their table assignments based what time their escort card clock was set to and match it with the time on bigger clocks that were placed on individual tables." — Kristin Banta, Kristin Banta Events

The Supreme Court Enabled Legal Gay Marriage in 5 States Today

Same Sex marriage in five new states

Photo: Getty Images

It's an exciting day for same-sex couples in five states! Today, the U.S. Supreme Court has declined the opportunity to review appeals courts seeking to uphold bans on gay marriage in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin, which means that legal, same-sex unions in these five states are now officially legal. America is one step closer to allowing gay marriage nationwide!

Officials in Virginia announced that marriages will begin commencing as soon as 1 p.m. today, while clerks in Marion County, Indiana, and Dane County, Wisconsin began issuing marriage licenses before noon.

"This is a historic and long overdue moment for our Commonwealth and our country," Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe said in a statement.

Not reviewing the appeals courts rulings not only means that the Supreme Court is more at ease with these in-state decisions, but also that the number of states with legislation allowing gay marriage has swiftly increased to 24 from 19, in addition to the District of Columbia.

But, today's Supreme Courts proceedings also opens the door for six more states to follow suit: Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming. Soon, it seems, the number states allowing gay marriage will grow again from 24 to 30 &mdashh; making it legal in a majority of states.

"I'm blown away by this," James Esseks, a lawyer who runs the American Civil Liberties Union's legal efforts for gay marriage, told the Washington Post. "It is a watershed moment for the entire country."

While these rulings do not tackle the position of gay marriage in the constitution, it does show that the Supreme Court is more ready to get involved in this heated, nationwide debate. Those who watch the courts closely predict that there will be an overarching, national decision in the next year or two — especially after the Supreme Court struck down DOMA last year — but we'll have to wait and see.

How to Avoid a Trip (Literally!) Down The Aisle

Sure, busting your butt in front of all your wedding guests may make for some funny photos a few years down the line. But chances are, if you're like most brides, taking a trip down memory lane is the last thing you dreamed about. Avoid an unfortunate fall on your big day with these pointers from the pros.

Choose comfortable shoes.
Your wedding day definitely isn't the ideal time to start experimenting with brand new heel heights. Instead, "purchase a pair of shoes with a height you regularly wear and feel comfortable in," suggests Tracie Domino, founder of Tracie Domino Events.

Wear heel protectors.
Getting married outdoors and simply not a fan of flats? Then you'll definitely want to invest in some heel protectors, says Blake Bush, associate wedding planner and event designer at Pure Luxe Bride. "They're a great way to ensure your stilettos don't get stuck in the grass or mud, not to mention they keep your shoes from getting dirty too," she points out.

Ditch the aisle runner.
Aisle runners may look pretty, but according to Bush, they can get bundled up and tangled easily, making them very hard to walk on. If you're stressed about falling flat on your face in the first place, it's certainly not worth the extra worry.

Get your gown hemmed properly.
During your wedding dress fittings, it's extremely important to wear the shoes you'll actually be wearing on your big day, stresses Shawn Rabideau, president of Shawn Rabideau Events & Design. "This way the seamstress can tailor the hem of your wedding gown to the correct length so you won't trip on the front of it."

Make sure you have enough space.
"Unfortunately, there's a much higher chance of a bride getting tripped up on her dress, veil or even the person walking her down the aisle if the aisle isn't big enough for both of them to walk comfortably," warns wedding planner and founder of Pretty Pear Bride, Shafonne Myers. Practice makes perfect, right?

Go easy on the booze.
Try and limit yourself to one glass of champagne while getting ready for the wedding, advises Domino. "Because a few cocktails and nerves certainly don't make a great combination for a successful walk down the aisle."

Miss USA Nia Sanchez Is Engaged!

We're engaged!! Ahhhh! Can't wait to spend forever with my love and best friend @realniasanchez @missusa �!! #bestnightever #TheBookos

View on Instagram

Miss USA Nia Sanchez will be soon be a Miss no more! The pageant winner is set to marry her boyfriend of more than a year, actor Daniel Booko.

Booko revealed the engagement — which happened this past Saturday in New York City — on Instagram with the photo above. Next to the adorable snap, he wrote: "We're engaged!! Ahhhh! Can't wait to spend forever with my love and best friend @realniasanchez @missusa!! #bestnightever #TheBookos"

For the proposal, Booko went all out. The 21 & Over actor secretly flew to New York City, where Sanchez currently resides, and rented out the Suite Royal at the NoMad Hotel. Then, Booko decorated the 700 square foot private terrace with the works: Candles and a plethora of flowers to set the scene for the most important question of his life.

"She's thinking she's going to an event with friends...[and] I will be there looking all dapper in a suit decorated with candles and flowers and the whole thing and have her come over — just her and I to have an intimate moment — then get down on one knee and propose, then pop champagne and celebrate," he told Rumor Fix before he popped the question.

The proposal isn't the only thing for which Booko pulled out all of the stops. In the snap, we can also see Sanchez's stunning sparkler, a platinum, two-carat engagement ring, which, E! News reports that he co-designed with INTA Gems and Diamonds, the same company that helps to craft all of the crowns for the Miss California competition. The best part, though, are the hidden red, white, and blue gems inside of the ring, to commemorate her recent win.

Wedding Invitation Glossary: 12 Printing Terms Defined

Not sure what the difference is between letterpress and embossing? Are you befuddled by foil? And what on earth is a bellyband? Here's a quick primer on the most common printing terms, so you can let your stationer know exactly what you want — and create an invitation that stays on budget and gives your guests a glimpse of the wedding to come.

See More: A Quick Guide to Addressing Your Wedding Invitations Properly

This decorative band of paper, fabric or ribbon wraps around the middle of your invitation, almost like a belt. It's ideal for dressing up a simpler invite — and keeping response cards, maps and other extras neatly contained.

A design is pressed into the paper, creating an indent. There's no ink involved, so you'd use this just to add a special design or monogram to the paper — not for the actual information.

A design is pressed onto a piece of paper that's placed between metal molds to create a textured image. Just like debossing, there is no ink or foil used, but this adds an extra bit of adornment.

The most formal and expensive style of invitation printing, where an etched plate is pressed into the back of the sheet of paper, creating raised lettering, then ink is applied. This results in a slight indent on the back of the card.

Foil Stamping
A small sheet of metallic paper is pasted onto the invite and then stamped or embossed to create a 3-D design.

See More: Save vs. Splurge Wedding Invitations

Laser Cut
A laser is used to cut precise, intricate patterns (like lace) into your paper.

This printing style has become extremely popular due to the handcrafted, vintage look it creates — and the lower price tag, compared with engraving. The text is literally imprinted onto the page.

This is how photocopiers and computer printers do their work. You'd use this flat printing style for very delicate materials, like rice paper, that would be easily torn if one of the other methods were used.

Screen Printing
A technique where ink is pressed through stenciled woven mesh to create a design that has a hand-painted effect.

This number refers to the weight of 500 sheets of a particular paper. The higher the number, the thicker the paper.

This printing method resembles engraving, but costs less. Ink powder is applied and heated to create raised lettering.

This is the lettering style, or font. Changing this can give your invitation a completely different look, so experiment with a few different options before you choose.

Exclusive: Padma Lakshmi Shares Her Top Tips for Throwing a Dinner Party

Padma Lakshmi Dinner Party Tips

Padma Lakshmi knows a thing or two about entertaining. Not only is she the host of Top Chef (the new season premieres on October 15), she's also a cookbook author and creator of an eponymous line of global-inspired tableware at Bloomingdales. "My first customer is always myself. I cook a lot, and I've been wanting to do [tableware] for a long time, so I can finally have what I haven't been able to find!" she says. Check out a few of her pieces below — and if that's not enough to inspire you, read her tips for throwing a dinner party your guests will never forget!

Make things easy on yourself: "Prepare most of your food ahead and set the table the night before. Whether you're cooking for two or 20, you want your attention on your guests and not on the million things going in the kitchen. If you have a good time, they'll have a good time!"

Set the mood: "Music is really important — and so is the volume!"

Forget spending a fortune on table décor: "You don't have to buy big floral bouquets every time. You can sprinkle some glass beads on the table to make it look more festive, or bind some cinnamon sticks together with gold twine."

Dress things up outdoors: "If you see a beautiful blanket or sheet or a thin Turkish towel that you like, buy it and use it as a tablecloth. It's a great way to add a lot of color and brightness and cheerfulness."

Break the ice: "You have to make that first move for your guests — another reason you don't want to be frazzled in the kitchen! So if you have two friends that you think have something in common, start the conversation yourself. You don't want anyone to feel awkward, especially if they're at a dinner party without a plus one."

One Couple's Relaxed Wedding Weekend in Buzzard's Bay, MA

In 2008, Jennifer Bates and Nathan Whipple both enlisted the Internet to help them find love, and help it did. "We met on," Jen remembers. "Our first date was on December 26th, the second was on the 27th, and the third was on the 28th. Can you tell we were having fun?" That algorithm worked its magic and, on October 4th, 2012, Jen and Nathan headed to Mendocino, California, for a wedding — and came back to plan a wedding of their own! "Nathan always joked that he'd propose by giving me a t-shirt that said 'I'm gonna marry Nathan Whipple," says Jen. "So when I got the feeling he'd propose soon, I got a t-shirt that said 'I do, I do, I do' on the front and 'The Future Mrs. Nathan Whipple' on the back." When, at sunset, Nathan opened a bottle of champagne and popped the question, Jen ran into their hotel room, then reappeared moments later wearing her t-shirt. If that's not a "yes," we don't know what is!

The couple got right to it, planning their wedding for just a year later, on October 5th, 2013. They went the non-traditional route, renting Overbrook House in Buzzard's Bay, Massachusetts, so they could host their guests for a creative, comfortable weekend full of New England charm.

Keep reading to see all the beautiful details, photographed by Mattie's Studio!

Jen always wanted a dress with a low back, so her sister, Katie, made an appointment at a salon that fit the bride's style. What did she end up with? A slip gown with lace-appliquéd straps by Elizabeth Fillmore. She carried a vibrant bouquet that included a red dahlias, white roses, and curled ferns. Nathan's four-year-old nephew, Sam, was the ring bearer. "He was smiling from ear to ear when he brought the rings up," says Jen. The couple wrote their own ceremony, which was performed by a close friend of the couple. Nathan's family has been in the cranberry farming industry for decades, so it's no surprise that the couple included the decidedly New England fruit in their farm-to-table celebration. The signature cocktail was "The Baby Maker," a spin on the Hemingway Daiquiri. They used a tree design for their thumbprint guest book. Jen's sister, Katie, also served as the wedding planner, organizing details and executing all of the day-of details. "She's tremendously gifted, and our wedding wouldn't have been as unique and exceptional without her," says Jen.

The reception took place at rustic farm tables beneath a Sperry tent. Simple centerpieces included arrangements of dahlias and roses and boxes of ferns, succulents, and mushrooms, both surrounded by moss. "We sourced some of the elements from the nearby woods that morning," says Jen. The Kraft paper menu outlined the evening's dinner, including a wood-roasted pig and fresh local vegetables.

Smoke & Pickles roasted a whole pig, as well as local cod and vegetables.

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Jen and Nathan served a selection of treats from Boston's Flour Bakery, where Jen is the Director of Operations, including homemade Oreos and cupcakes. The reception was "open mic," with family members and guests standing up to toast the newlyweds. "Nathan's best friend told the story of how we met, but managed to include aliens and space travel," Jen laughs.

The pair honeymooned in Jamaica for 10 days of aged rum, jerk chicken, and time on the beach. "We treated Katie and her boyfriend to a 5-day 'buddymoon' at the beginning of our trip," says the bride. "It's the least we could do for all their hard work."

So how did Jen and Nathan end up with a wedding that was so relaxed and carefree? "We focused on the things we really cared about, and let other things just fall into place," she says. "And, of course, we hired Katie!"

5 Jobs for the Maid of Honor that Nobody Warns Her About

Maid of Honor Duties

Photo: Getty Images

Being asked to be the maid of honor is a big deal — even if it's your sister's wedding — the MOH is considered to be the bride's bestie, closest confidante, and the one woman she most trusts to help her get through the joys and tribulations of her wedding planning.

The MOH is responsible for making sure there will be bridal showers (even if she doesn't host one), planning the bachelorette party, and helping to corral the other bridesmaids for dress fittings and other necessary pre-wedding activities.

But there are also a number of things that the MOH is responsible for on the actual wedding weekend that no etiquette book will warn her about. These five are perfect examples:

1. Monitoring every member of the bridal party's alcohol intake on the wedding day.
Nobody likes to be the party pooper, but sometimes the MOH has to step up to the plate and tell the girls doing shots while they're dressing to cool it before the ceremony. Giggling on the altar, or tripping on your way down the aisle, isn't acceptable.

2. Knowing where the bride's personal items are at all times.
She'll probably have an evening bag that has her lipstick, tissues, her phone, and other personal items in it. She'll need to be able retouch lipstick during final photos and she'll need to refresh before her big entrance, toasts and cutting the cake. It's the MOH's job to have things on hand as needed.

3. Straightening up the bridal suite before the reception ends.
If the wedding venue is in the same place as the where the couple is staying, it's easy for the MOH to grab another bridesmaid and slip away to triage the bride and groom's bedroom before they retire for the evening. All the detritus of the bridal party dressing should be removed, the pillows should be fluffed and she might even consider leaving a romantic touch on the pillow.

4. Keeping safe the envelopes of cash.
Depending on the kind of wedding group and where they're getting married, there may not be a special place to put envelopes holding monetary gifts. Sometimes the wedding planner will hold them for the couple until after the wedding, but if there isn't somebody there to do that, the MOH needs to find a hidey-hole in the master suite or elsewhere to stash the booty.

5. Making sure the bride drinks as much water as she does alcohol.
It's easy for a bride to accidentally get drunk. Seriously. With the stress of the day, she may not eat even if there's food in front of her. And if the girls keep pouring champagne or cocktails and that's what she has to drink, she'll be downing it. Switching up between water and wine, so to speak, is a good way to help her make sure she's hydrated and sober when she heads down the aisle.

Owner of Weddings in Vieques, a destination-wedding planning company off the coast of Puerto Rico, Sandy Malone has helped countless couples plan their big day since 2007.

Your Weekly Wedding Horoscope: October 6, 2014

Wedding Horoscope

Lucky you, brides! Astrologer Joan Porte is back again this week to help guide you in the right direction when it comes to planning and pulling off your perfect day. Discover what the stars have in store for you with her horoscopes below.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
This is the time to really get stuff done! With your ruler, Mars, in another fire sign, Sagittarius, you have enough energy to light the world. Make those calls and check things off your list, as nothing will stand in your way this week. Just remember that not everyone has all of that fire so keep your Aries temper under control when dealing with slower types.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This week you'll want to pick out all those decorative items you need to make your big day beautiful. Venus is in Libra, the other sign besides yours that it rules, and sitting close to the Libran Sun so you have double Venus influence right now. Meet with your invitation designer, say yes to the dress and start thinking about table settings and flowers. All of these activities you'll handle with even more than your usual grace.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Mercury has slipped back into retrograde, so be sure to think twice and check three times before doing anything important. In addition, back up all of your documents, as things tend to get lost when Mercury goes to sleep. If you are communicating with your vendors, follow up phone calls with email confirmations. There is just too much room for confusion until Mercury gets his act together.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
With the Moon in emotional Pisces right now, it's best to avoid any conversations that have the possibility of causing tension. Let your future mother-in-law wait for that call back if a blow up is in the offing. In a few days, the Moon will be back in Aries again and then you can rearm your emotions for battle.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Your ruler, the Sun, is currently hugging Venus and dancing in the constellation of Libra so take all of that Leo fire and get creative, brides. Speaking of dancing, pick out your music and get some of those DIY projects off the ground while you're at it. You're at the peak of your creativity right now!

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
With your ruler, Vesta, in Sagittarius and hanging close to Ceres and Saturn, you'll put your nose even further towards the grindstone than normal this week. Since you love to be in the garden, use Ceres' motherly energy and Saturn's orderliness to nurture your floral arrangements and plan any other outdoor activities you have in store for your big day.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Venus and the Sun are together now so sit down and let those creative juices fly. Design your wedding programs, brainstorm ideas for your signature cocktails or come up with the craftiest wedding favors ever. There's no stopping the flow of fab ideas with Venus' blessing and her touch of grace this week.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Pluto has just gotten out of retrograde so you should be bursting with energy right now. It's still making that nasty squared aspect to Uranus though so you'll need to take a few deep breaths and organize yourself to prevent that "chicken-without-a-head" syndrome when it comes to wedding planning. Uranus wants to move fast and Pluto is anything but, however, you can keep them both under control. After all, you are a Scorpio!

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
If you're feeling a bit rebellious this week you can thank the Black Moon Lilith, a very feisty gal, currently influencing your ruler Jupiter. Since you're never much of a wallflower anyway this is going to give you that little edge to sneak in some touches that will offer just enough shock value to be fun yet still appropriate.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
With Saturn in Scorpio you might find yourself feeling even more overwhelmed with wedding planning tasks than usual. Now that Ceres, the motherly planet, is hugging Saturn close why not take a break for a few days, have some tea and just relax. Come on, you can do it.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
With Uranus still in retrograde, you have a lot more bottled up energy than you typically do and unfortunately no suitable outlet for it this week. Simplify your plans or take a meditation break (or two or three) to get your mind right and back on track.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Although your ruler, Neptune, is currently in Pisces, it has gone into retrograde, making you feel like a total fish out of water now. This is the perfect time to delegate some tasks before you're so overwhelmed you don't know which way is up.
