Winter weddings
It’s time to plan your wedding, the excitement of your engagement and the stresses of the planning process have merged. There is a world of options to consider in order to make your wedding dreams come true.  Often, the first consideration when planning a wedding is the date; should it be in the summer by the water? In the fall as the leaves turn? Or in the fresh air of spring? Most brides don’t think of winter as an option.

Five factors that influence a woman's decision to take her husband's last name
George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin nearly three weeks ago and Amal announced that she is changing her name to Amal Clooney.  While Amal opted to take Clooney as her last name, her age (36) and professional identity as an international lawyer are factors that would make one think that she would have kept her maiden name in some way (perhaps as a middle name).
