Now or forever? That’s the choice brides must make when it comes to cosmetics, says stylist Chris Lanston, whose clients that include Tyra Banks and Alan Thicke. “Most brides want their makeup simple but glowy.

Serving your reception meal buffet-style has its pros and cons, notes Confetti Radio host Debbie Quain: “The upside is that guests get to mingle at the buffet tables, and sample a variety of dishes to boot. The downside is that long lines often form at the tables, which is something I absolutely hate to see. There’s no elegance to that. Another minus is that it’s harder for the caterer to control the portions, because you don’t know which dishes will be more popular. The best way to...
