Let's face it: weddings are stressful. And as fun as they are, and as exciting as it is to pin all those gorgeous wedding dresses and pictures of perfect venues on Pinterest, we often overlook the practical things that are needed to make a dream wedding happen.

Check out these helpful charts on Pinterest that will help make planning your big day a breeze:

1. A timeline flowchart

The whole idea of planning a wedding can be daunting for everyone. While this isn't super detailed, this chart lays out a high-level idea of when you should expect to do A, B and C in the planning process.

2. Registry checklist


Because let's be real—you probably won't be able to come up with everything you need on your own! Peep this handy dandy checklist to get an idea of some of the products you can ask for.

3. Questions to ask your wedding venue

Super important! The space can easily make or break your and your guests experience, and asking the right questions can help ensure you're getting the most out of your money.

4. Bouquet guide

If you're like me, you love flowers but aren't an expert florist. Getting an idea of the different types of bouquet styles is helpful so you can articulate exactly what you want to your florist.

5. Head table 101

Some head tables just include bride and groom, some seat the entire wedding party, some don't have a head table at all. There's no right or wrong way to do this, but understanding your options can help you make the best decision for your big day.

6. Guest seating

So you've got the head table down—now it's time to figure out where to seat everyone else. With so many options, pick a style that suits your venue and guest list the most.

7. First dance songs

This is tricky. Maybe you don't have a "song," or maybe if you do, it's not the best slow dance music. Regardless, check out this list of top first dance songs to get some ideas.

8. Family photo checklist

Your wedding happens only once (hopefully), so it's imperative to get all the necessary pictures with your loved ones! Work with your photographer to make sure you get all the shots you want to be able to look back on.

9. Alcohol inventory

You, of all people, probably know your family's drinking habits the best, so these estimates aren't spot-on for everyone. However, having a rough idea of how much liquor supplies you'll need will be helpful through the budgeting and reception planning process.

10. Kids or no kids?

Again, totally dependent on what you want and what you feel would be the best for your guests. This little flow chart might help you think through that decision.

11. Bridal emergency kit

You're going ALL day, so having all the necessary (and precautionary) supplies is imperative!

12. Changing your name

If you choose to change your name, it's kind of a big deal. Whether it's your driver's license or your Netflix subscription, be sure not to leave anything out with this handy list.

13. Honeymoon planning

Take some advice from wedding plan pros when figuring out your honeymoon budget, destination, activities and all the in-between details so you can kick back and enjoy your first few days of marriage.

14. Thank you note cheat sheet

With so many to write, personalizing each and every one of them can be difficult and even more time-consuming. Peep this helpful cheat sheet so you can say thanks in the best, and easiest, way.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.
