Bride/Babe: Lindsay Carson

Bride/Babe Lindsay Carson knew exactly what she wanted - a destination, island wedding where she could go barefoot on the beach. The question was where. She and her husband did a scouting trip to Beach House Turks & Caicos and knew they had found the place. Her April wedding fell just as hotel rates became more affordable, allowing for their guests to take over the 21-suite property and for the wedding to feel like a glam adult camp.

Bride/Babe: Caitlin Jones

This week's Bride/Babe, Caitlin Jones, threw the ultimate fall, countryside wedding at her parent's home in Western Massachusetts when she married the man she met in sixth, yes sixth, grade! A school therapist and talented singer, Caitlin kept her head on straight with some seriously wise choices, right down to the cowboy boots she paired with her gown, but also let her creativity fly, singing a duet with her groom and rolling an airstream bar into the property.  Check out all the good details. I'm obsessed!

Bride/Babe: Rebecca Aiello

This week's Bride/Babe is my super stylish younger sister, Rebecca Aiello. She got engaged on the same night as I did, and planned her Cape wedding in less than a year (to my 17 months!), all while living in London and recovering from an intensive ACL and meniscus surgery. She was the happiest of brides all day, but especially on the dance floor - dips and back bends run in our genes.

Get Barry'd Before You Get Married - the Ins and Outs of Barry's Bootcamp and Getting in Shape for Your Wedding

Mention the word Barry's and the novice is pretty quick to say "I'm scared of that." Rightfully so. For my first class, I remember having a pit in my stomach before they even let us into the studio. Sprints. Hills. Super fit people. Something celebrities do. It's intimidating. But you get over that, and after you get over that, you get addicted. Especially if you're like me and it takes a bit of an ass kicking to prevent workout boredom.

What's a Skin Workout, and Why Should You Care?... Pete Dziedzic, Co-owner of the award-winning skoah, explains

I got hooked on skoah last fall. My fiance and I moved in together in the early-ish stages of our relationship, when thoughts like "When I break out in front of this guy, am I going to check into a hotel to avoid him?
