We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their best tips for getting through the craziness of the season—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.
More and more brides are letting their bridesmaids choose their own bridesmaids dresses, and while this sounds great in theory (you may actually be able to wear it again!), all that freedom can leave you wondering where to even begin when shopping.

TheGloss is one of our daily must-reads (right up there with the NY Times). We love the site’s witty approach to style and its smart and irreverent voice. We like the writing so much, in fact, that we’ll be featuring one of their posts each week here on the Birchbox blog.
At this point, Jessica Biel is just daring you to punch her. Go ahead. Punch her right in the shoulders. She doesn’t care. In fact, she will have no idea that it even happened, because she has two relatively large airbags resting on her rotator cuffs to protect her from any threat of impact.
