We went away for a week, and it feels like the world took a few revolutions while we were gone. (Requiescat in pace, James Gandolfini. I saw you on the street once in New York, and you always seemed like a kind man.)
We’ve got a lot to cover, and I’m feeling particularly chatty, since we haven’t talked in two weeks.

Glamour Mag debates whether brides should purchase their bridesmaids’ dresses. If the dresses are more than $100, we give a resolute yes (and even if the dresses are under $100, I’m sure the maids would be quite appreciative). Let’s chat further about this issue, because I think it rests on some fault lines of money, obligation, and guilt that plague friends-who-get-wed.
I’m loving the idea of using a bespoke font for your wedding paraphernalia. (PS: that word is insanely hard to spell.) While these fonts aren’t created just for you, they’re custom enough to make your wedding paraphernalia (now that I know how to spell it, I can’t stop using it!) pop.
I’m back on the Gizoogle; tha shiz just never gets old. In case you want to see what our site looks like, go here. If you’re easily offended, well, then you’re probably not reading our Friday Radars anyway.
The World According To Rob and I have been married 12 years tomorrow–it’s astonishing, in the best possible way–and I agree with almost every word of Marcus’s very practical, very well-written answer to the eternal, infernal “wedding advice” question.
Have you ever heard of this FLOP–flowers, liquor, orchestra, and photography–situation? Wondering if it’s cultural, geographical, or just a phantom phrase.
Here’s some technical advice for matting and framing fine art, in case you take matters into your own hands with all the photos you will amass from your wedding.
Not to toot our own horn (toot toot!), but did you catch all the amazing content we’ve been posting lately? From two real weddings last week to this week’s tiki bar post, we’re not slacking off this summer.
