In the months leading up to your wedding day, you’re probably getting a lot of winks and nudges about your wedding night. But the reality is, the wedding night isn’t always filled with passionate and totally romantic lovemaking — which can be a little disappointing if you weren’t expecting this. We hate to burst your bubble, but here are 10 very common (and not terribly sexy) scenarios you’ll might experience after you say “I do.”
1. You will be STARVING.
A lot of couples don’t get to eat at their reception; once the adrenaline of the day wears off, hitting the drive-thru or ordering room service is going to sound amazing.
2. You might be really sad.
3. Or really drunk.
(Or really sad AND really drunk.)
4. You may also be in the early stages of a hangover.
5. You’ll probably need a moment to change out of your shapewear and i
So, you’ve agreed to be a groomsman, eh? Well chances are, unless you’ve been part of a wedding many times before (think 27 Dresses, groomsmen edition) you probably have NO idea what you’re supposed to do. Between giving a toast, organizing a bachelor party and sending in your tux measurements, groomsmen have just as hard a job as the bridesmaids do.
Don’t be intimated, though! We know that if you’ve agreed to be a groomsman, that means you want to do a great job and make your buddy’s journey to the wedding day memorable and fun. That’s why we’ve compiled some tips for the modern groomsman that’ll help you make the big day as amazing as possible for your friends. Even if you feel like you’ve got this groomsman thing under control, we guarantee there’s something on this list that will be helpful for anyone who’

Every time you walk into the mall, the grocery store or a big-box retailer, remember it’s you against them.
“Them” are the marketers, sales professionals and CEOs who are determined to make you buy more than you planned. They spent $60 billion worldwide in 2013 on market research and business intelligence, all with the goal of putting more money in their coffers. For retailers, their research may include what you buy, when you buy and even what displays catch your eye.
In addition, retailers have an arsenal of sales tactics that may seem silly but serve as heavy-duty artillery when it comes to persuading you to part ways with your money.

You could say this proposal didn’t exactly go swimmingly.
In a video uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, a man named Shane pops the question to his girlfriend on a paddle boat full of their friends. In her excitement, she playfully hits him and knocks the ring out of his hands and into the water.
You’re probably dying to know if they found the ring — so are we. We reached out to Shane but hadn’t heard back by the time of publication.

This month my husband, Dan, and I are celebrating two years of marriage. We’ve had a challenging summer with many hospital visits leading up to his surgery, so we decided to get away for a weekend. I found a lovely B&B on Lake Erie and we had a wonderful time relaxing, hiking, and watching the sunset.
But as the title of this blog post insinuates, the last two years have not been all about relaxation and sunsets. In fact, the second year of our marriage was the hardest year of my life. Dan and I faced many challenges together and really struggled in our relationship. Though I’m much more hopeful about our future today than I was three months ago, I know we still have some work ahead of us.
Simply put, marriage is not what I thought it would be.
It hasn’t felt 100 percent safe. My husband knows me better than anyone else in the world, but I still st
The question: Is it bad to sleep wearing a bra?
The answer: You’ve probably heard the unfortunate rumors that wearing a bra to sleep causes breast cancer, or that it causes breast sagging because it supposedly weakens breast tissue. But aside from the fact that it may not be all that comfortable, there’s no evidence to suggest that there are negative health effects to wearing a bra to sleep.
As Amber Guth, M.D., an associate professor of surgery and director of the Breast Cancer Surgery Multidisciplinary Fellowship at NYU Langone Medical Center, previously told HuffPost Style, “there is certainly no evidence that sleeping in bras is either helpful or harmful.”
The cancer rumor in particular began with the 1995 book Dressed to Kill, which included claims that daily wear of tight-fitting bras increased risk of breast cancer by constricting the lymphatic system, t
Just three days before she died of breast cancer, Mary Ann Manning summoned the strength to share one last dance with her son Ryan at his wedding.
Ryan and Katelyn Manning of San Francisco tied the knot at the St. Regis in Dana Point, California earlier this month. At the reception, he and his mother danced to Israel Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole’s “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” medley — an amazing accomplishment given that she began using a wheelchair months before the wedding.
“It was incredibly emotional, especially to see her pop out of the wheelchair,” daughter Karie Chamberlain told KTVU. “For the days leading up to it, we were helping her do everything — even walk.”
The groom told KTVU how much he admired his mother’s determination. Mary Ann’s kids believe she was living for the wedding — she died exactly 72 hour
