But if you’re jet setting overseas for your honeymoon, then there definitely are a few things that you’ll need to plan in advance to ensure smooth sailing. Here are 4 of our own international honeymoon planning tips to get you started:

Kristoffer and Nicholas were set up on a blind phone date by mutual friends during which they spent 4 hours talking. I'd say if you could spend 4 hours straight chatting with a date, they you've already hit the jackpot. After their 4-hour conversation, they just had to meet in person, so they went on their first date. Meeting only confirmed the spark that was ignited on that first phone call and now here we are obsessing over their sensational wedding.
Happy Monday, MHW readers! If you haven't yet poured yourself a cup of joe, now's a good time to do so. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy our all-things-java inspired wedding wish list. After all, you've earned that cappuccino break!
The media has been buzzing with news of Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney's wedding in Venice over this past weekend. We, personally, couldn't wait to hear news of which star studded wedding venue they would pick.When we got news that they'd chosen the seven star Aman Canal Grande Hotel, we immediately Google'd it and, thereafter, fell in love.
Long sleeve bridal dresses are not unloved but seem to always be defeated by a sexy bare shoulder. Even during the fall and winter, everywhere you look there is a bride rocking the flattering strapless sweetheart cut and the meager sleeves are left unnoticed.
The long sleeve has attempted a discreet debut, yet it still remains the underdog. Kate Middleton took the lead with the trend back in 2011 and Kim Kardashian followed only to prove that the long sleeve is indeed something to watch for. It is patented as conservative for its obvious reasons, however covering your extremities can be equally as sexy as exposing them.
If you're opting for a less-than-traditional ceremony, we'll help you pick the perfect song to announce your entrance! Every week, we'll be sharing some of our favorite songs for that movie-moment when you walk down the aisle on your wedding day.
This week's song is an instrumental from one of our favorite red-headed beauties-- Florence + the Machine. We just love the way it builds anticipation, capturing the moment that bride and groom see each other for the first time. Listen to Cosmic Love, and let us know what you think!
And suddenly it's the last Friday in September and the first Friday of fall! I'm keeping my fingers crossed over here for some fall colors and a little bit of rain. Until then, I guess I'll settle for a look at a few gorgeous real hotel weddings. (And if that's the most settling I'm going to do this week, then I'll take it!) So enjoy these beauties and have a fabulous weekend!
Flatware (aka silverware) can be one of the most useful things to register for in planning for life after the wedding. No matter what your living situation is, flatware can help you and your fiancé define your style as newlyweds and make your house a home. It's also something you use every day, so you might as well find some you love, right? If you don't know where to start in picking out your new kitchen accessories, we've compiled a few of our favorite sets. Be sure to also swing by The Knot and read their helpful Flatware 101 guide on patterns, metals, cleaning and storing.
