However, we all know there are some things that may take you by surprise when you go shopping for your wedding dress. Let's review how to prepare yourself for the biggest wedding dress secrets and surprises.

Table numbers are one of the staple pieces of any wedding. Instead of doing the same thing as every wedding before yours, why not switch things up a bit?
To all of you new 2B's who are recently engaged....welcome! Fortunately, Indy brides who just got engaged have been afforded some awesome weather to get out and there hit the pavement running! We know you are excited to get your wedding plans under way - and your venue search should be that first empty check box on your to-do list.

Hawaii remains the #1 destination for honeymoons year after year because of its romantic sunsets, magnificent beaches, luxurious hotels and breathtaking cruises. Honeymooners have endless options. Following months of wedding planning, couples often retreat to a luxurious resort that caters to their every need, or take an exciting cruise that allows them to see multiple islands and experience the romance of Hawaii onboard a cruise ship, while others trek to an adventurous escape from their day-to-day lives. They can hop from island to island to experience just about any climate and adventure under the sun, including kayaking, mountain climbing, surfing, scuba, and even hiking in a rainforest. Regardless if it is a beach vacation, an exciting adventure filled trip, or something in between, the honeymoon should reflect the joint personalities and wishes of the newly married couple.
Everybody looks different when they're naked and guess what, 2B's? The same goes for cakes! "Naked cakes" arrived on the wedding scene in 2013 and are beginning to make their way into mainstream wedding design. As this trend grows in popularity; so does the level of creativity in their development. Today, on the IB2B blog we are discussing both the benefits of opting for naked cake - and the many ways to "dress" your naked wedding cake that will leave your guests drooling with anticipation!
"Planning my friend's bachelor/bachelorette party was so fun and easy", said NO ONE EVER. Any maid-of-honor or best man who has been tasked to get a large group of friends together, man the communications, get everyone on the same page, and plan a party that everyone will enjoy knows how challenging it can be. Balancing different personalities, preferences, budgets, and schedules can feel less like party-planning and more like a job of herding cats! This common challenge ignited a brainstorm of ideas for DJ's Bryon and Luke, owners of Vibe Wedding Group, LLC. Though the two have over 17+ years in the wedding industry; they realized that this was a concept unique to only two other cities in the U.S. After researching, the two set out to create a full-service bachelor/bachelorette party-planning business that would streamline and simplify the process for Indianapolis brides and grooms looking to celebrate their last days of being single. After spending countless months networking and negotiating, Bryon and Luke have created a large list of party packages with partners who offer bar/nightclub, transportation, lodging, and entertainment services in the Indianapolis and surrounding areas. They creatively deemed their new endeavor "Indy's Last Stand". (Love it!) We recently got the opportunity to sit down and talk about Indy's Last Stand with Bryon and Luke and are delighted to share some great information we extracted from the interview with our 2B's:
For many couples, planning their honeymoon destination and vacation agenda can be overwhelming. With so many options and with the average honeymoon costing $4,466 (accounting for 14 percent of your wedding budget), it becomes important to understand what options are best for you and your groom. Cruises have always been a great choice for a vacation, but when it comes to your honeymoon, a cruise honeymoon is a terrific, hassle-free option. A cruise ship is virtually a floating resort; with all the things a fine land-based honeymoon resort has to offer and more! Research shows honeymoon cruises have a higher percentage of satisfied customers than any other honeymoon vacation experience. Here are just some of the reasons why a honeymoon cruise is the option that so many Indianapolis couples choose:
