Wouldn’t it be great to know, to the second, how long it is until you say “I Do”? Never fear, iPhone brides. You can now have that knowledge with a simple, .99 cent app from the iTunes Store. Andesigned.net brings you Wedding Day, an IPhone app that shows you exactly how much time you have left as a single woman.
And, (this I love), it continues counting after you get married, so you can keep track of every second of your newly blessed union.

Ah, your bridesmaids…those girls who have been there for you for years, living through all your boy-drama and, lately, all your wedding-planning drama. They’re shelling out hundreds to be in your wedding and you’re supposed to give them a gift at the event to show your thanks. My problem is that so often those “attendant” gifts are just…lame.
I mean really, nothing says “thanks for being in my wedding” like…a pink leather-encased flask! What does that convey about what you think of your girls? Or, what about an engraved yo-yo? Now there’s a useful item! Yeah, I frequently find myself standing in line at Starbucks thinking “Gee, I wish I could yo right now, preferably with something monogrammed with Sheila and Charlie’s wedding date.” Sigh.
The “attendant gift” is a great opportunity not only to say thanks, but also to show your girls or guys that you really know them and what they like. The gifts don’t all have to be the same, either; in fact, I think personalized is better. My sister gave each of her attendants a cookbook she thought they’d like. I use mine often, even 7 years later, and remember her wedding fondly every time I do.
I say we California girls start a rebellion and only give worthy and worthwhile attendant gifts. You can use your imagination and come up with something great. And, HansonEllis.com has some cute stuff. I like the pink jute bag, for instance. For the guys, they can get some inspiration from our “Gift Guide for The Groom’s Guys.”
