If you are a woman, in between the ages of 16-26, and have a Pinterest, you know the wedding day hype. It's something you dream about since you were a little girl. Yet, as you get older, the thought becomes more real. Therefore, you need to plan. The invitations, the flowers, the venue, YOUR DRESS! But sometimes, you can start to lack inspiration. These 10 wedding videos will inspire you like no other and will probably make you shed a few tears.

1. Cole and Savannah Labrant

Cole and Savannah Labrant have been very evident on social media throughout their entire relationship. From Musical.ly to Instagram to even trendy videos on Facebook, the Labrant's are known all over the Internet! They are specifically known for Savannah's adorable daughter, Everleigh. Every wedding has its own special moments. Some of theirs would be Savannah's sister, Chantelle's, speech, the secret letters written before the ceremony, and Savannah's vows about praying for a Godly man to come into her life.

However, in Cole and Savannah's wedding video, the cutest thing is probably when Cole says vows to Everleigh as well. Saying things like "I promise to always love you and your mom," and to even referring to wanting to be her "daddy forever." Can it get any cuter? Plus their reception looked like so much fun, especially when Cole breaks out all his dance moves.

2. Gabriel and Jess Conte

Jess and Gabriel dated for a little over a year, most of the time, being on completely different sides of the world. Jess, who is from Australia, and Gabriel, who lived all the way in LA, finally broke the chain of long distance after getting married.

Their wedding was very simple and traditional, however, was very emotional. During most of the speeches and vows, someone is probably shedding a few tears. The part that really gets emotional though is when Gabriel vows to always put Jesus first in their relationship and how, now, they can finally be together. Also, the clips of them on the hill, wind blowing and all, looks like it is out of a fairy tale.

3. Parker Ferris and Aspyn Ovard

High school sweethearts from Utah, Aspyn Ovard and Parker Ferris got married at the age of 19! Their boho chic wedding was a small, intimate event with close friends and family gathered around. Aspyn's wedding is one of my favorites because her decorations and small details look like they came straight out of Pinterest. I mean, c'mon, those flower crowns? So cute! An event that was anticipated by fans for years. The only thing bigger than their wedding would now be that they are expecting their first child!

4. Daniel Jensen and Alex Centomo

Dan and Alex is probably my favorite on this list just because of how raw their video actually is. The couple had known each other since they were 8 years old. They actually met on the swim team! Their relationship grew over the years and they finally tied the knot in early October of 2018. I love the overall aesthetic of their wedding. The very outdoorsy, green, minimalist vibe is so in and so cute! Their video is a little longer than some of the others, but it is definitely so sentimental. Most of their friends made cameos during the speeches, but my favorite would definitely be Dan's brother Tim. His speech honestly made me cry!

5. Christina Cimorelli and Nick Reali

Christina and Nick waited a while to get married, but it was well worth it. The video is honestly like they were living out of a fairytale. Coming from a traditional background, their wedding is not exactly "trendy," but very personal. They performed their service in a large church and had her sisters sing before the vows. Yet, the best part, in my opinion, would be when all of Christina's sisters do personal testimonies about Christina and Nick's relationship. Adorable! You can tell they have been together for a long time.

6. Kane and Pia Muehlenbeck

Kane and Pia. Where do I begin? Her dress! The accents! The champagne tower! This wedding was pretty boujee if I do say so myself, but you can clearly see the love that this couple has for each other. Even though there are some crazy aspects, like Pia's amazing dress, the service was quite small and close knit. But, if you need some inspiration for your Pinterest board, definitely check this video out! The aesthetic of their wedding is breathtaking.

7. Sammi Maria and Jason Davis

Sammi is a beauty blogger from London that I actually have been a fan of for a few years. She married her boyfriend and father to her child, Jason. Their wedding video is cinematic and so beautifully produced. My personal favorite part of their wedding would definitely be their venue. It is this gorgeous stone building in England, that may as well be a castle! While their wedding is trendy, it is definitely way more traditional than the average "Pinterest wedding." I think this wedding is really good for inspiration because of all of Sammi's wedding attire choices. Her hair, her jewelry, her dress, they are all things that I personally love and would definitely purchase for my own wedding. Plus, peek her sweet baby, Indie, that makes a cameo in the video!

8. Dylan and Delia Chatwin

Another boho chic wedding? Yes, I know. But, Dylan and Delia's wedding screams "Pinterest inspiration." The hipster couple's special day was full of extravagance, love, and their smiles. This long-distance couple finally broke that with their wedding day, saying that Delia is from Arizona and Dylan from Utah. Delia's bouquet is one of the absolute highlights of this wedding because of how crazy beautiful it is. Plus, I think the representation of their love story throughout the video really gives viewers the feel for their relationship. Anyways, I will be pinning Delia's hair and dress on Pinterest constantly now. Gorgeous!

9. Gabriel Santiago and Jessi Malay

Can someone say #CoupleGoals? Jessi and Gabriel look like the happiest couple on earth and I hope to look that happy on my wedding day. Their Hawaiian wedding is breathtaking. It is literally a dream. Basically, I'm telling you, if you need inspiration, every part of this video has it. From Jessi's ring, to her dresses (YES, THERE IS MORE THAN ONE), to the decorations, everything! Go check it out literally right now.

10. James and Tati Westbrook

To end it off, I had to share Tati and James' wedding. Another Hawaiian dream, this wedding is beautiful. Tati is known for being a perfectionist in the makeup community and this wedding definitely fits those qualities. Tati is stunning in this video, from her hair, to her makeup (done by James Charles), to her dress. She looks like a princess. This wedding just makes you feel all the emotions. If you need a good example of a couple that loves each other, watch this video.

I know that your dream wedding day may seem an eternity away, but until then, here are 10 "Pinterest princesses" for you to gush over. If this doesn't make your wedding bug itch, I don't know what will.

Mia Khalifa Got Engaged Before You Did — Another Reminder That Nice Girls Always Finish Last

"Well-behaved women seldom make history," right?

On Thursday, March 14th, the infamous adult industry star and sports commentator, Mia Khalifa, and her long-time boyfriend, Robert Sandberg, got engaged over a fancy dinner in Chicago. As soon as I saw the picture on her Twitter page, I was ecstatic because I love engagement announcements. Besides, there's always something encouraging about seeing two people who are in love take an even deeper step in their relationship to ultimately reach their end goal. But of course, when you're a public figure, people take it upon themselves to add their two cents. While I usually roll my eyes at unsolicited comments from randoms on the internet, I couldn't help agree with one thread of comments in particular.


Seeing tweets like this make sense to me because I've always been a firm believer that being a non-traditional woman doesn't make you exempt from being wifey material. When I saw that Mia got engaged, the first thing that came out of my mouth was "good for her" and I meant that genuinely. Her career in pornography has been controversial especially due to her Lebanese heritage. In an interview with Newsweek, Khalifa admitted that her own parents don't even speak with her.

After leaving the porn industry within three months, she became a successful entrepreneur. People wondered how she could make the transition despite her past, but she went on a become successful businesswoman, juggling between being a co-host for sports commentary channels, posting live streams for Twitch, and selling merchandise through Patreon. I personally don't think these amazing qualities should be overshadowed by the stigma of working in adult film.

And the stigma behind bad girls didn't just start recently. Most of this can be explained by the Madonna-Whore Dichotomy (MWD), popularized by Sigmund Freud. Simply put, good girls are associated with purity while the bad girls are associated with promiscuity. While many of Freud's theories surrounding sexuality are laughable at best in the psychology world, the MWD still holds weight today and both women and men suffer from this ideology. Even certain reactions to Mia's engagement compare her sexual reputation as a contrast with what a "good girl" or "wife" should be.



With that said, let me explain why non-traditional women like Mia Khalifa are worthy of everything they desire. There's underlying strength behind bad girls because they tend to live a fearless life. A bad girl doesn't make her decisions based on what people think of her or what seems like the easy route to go by. A bad girl is fully aware of how she may be perceived, but that doesn't stop her from conquering her goal. A bad girl receives the fullest out of life because she doesn't get what she deserves per se, but gets what she negotiates. When she actively gets what she wants on her own terms, it's often a display of her confidence and power and that alone is ten times more alluring than being basic.

So when people ask the questions “Why would a man want to marry someone like that?" I would tell them that many qualities that are considering wifey material are outdated. In the 1950s, the main aspect that constituted what it meant to be a wife was a woman who fulfilled the traditional gender role. In 2019, women have more space to live their lives in a way that isn't solely an audition to become a wife even if they still get judged for it at times.

Now, the concept of what wifey material is has changed. It's not only about a woman's ability to cook and clean and preference to stay in rather than going out. A study conducted every year by the University of Iowa since the 1930s gave insight to the qualities that men look for in a long-term partner and the top traits were financial stability, emotional stability, attractiveness, intelligence, dependability, and ambition.

Independence is one word that can sum up most of traits and it describes women like Khalifa perfectly. She even stated in an interview for Playboy that when it comes to whatever direction she goes in life and career, unless she does it on her terms, she'll never be happy. It takes a lot of confidence, independence and intelligence to be able to flourish while doing what you want on your own terms.

Aside from Khalifa, there are many examples where non-traditional women have reigned supreme. Take Chrissy Teigen for example. She isn't the kind of woman who dulls herself down for the sake of a relationship. She's outspoken and never shies away from addressing topics that other women are thinking of but don't say out loud. She has also revealed that she and John Legend slept together the first night they met, and they're happily married to this day.

The same compartmentalization applies to Nicole (Snooki) LaValle who was once deemed “one of the most un-wifeable celebrities" due to her party image in "Jersey Shore." She is now currently going strong with her husband, Jionni, and they have two kids.

Meghan Markle, Duchess Of Sussex, also faced scrutiny as she hasn't always been seen as the proper fit for Prince Harry because she never lived a “quiet" life before him and lived her previous life in the public eye through acting. Despite reservations on their relationship, Markle and Prince Harry have been successful and will welcome their first child later this spring.

To put this in a more realistic context, a lot of us will never know what it's like to live the kind of life with the stigma of being a woman in the adult entertainment industry or the minimization of our career due to our marriage with a famous husband. However, many of us do know what it's like with the stigma of not being a traditional woman. We know what it's like to grow up learning that we have to dumb ourselves down in order to make boys like us more. We know what it's like to hear "the fastest way to a man's heart is through his stomach" followed by stern advice to make sure we know how to cook in order to keep a man. We're well acquainted with the feeling of discouragement of being talked out of many things because it isn't considered ladylike.

So if you're a woman who is reading this and you don't have the most conventional style, personality, or career path, continue doing you. Don't live your life constantly wondering what people will say about the way you live your life. You are free to be as loud, confident or unorthodox as you want. Being wifey material should not be at odds with feminine sexual expression or anything else that goes against the status quo that women have to be docile and submissive in order to obtain a husband. Keep shaking the tables and breaking down barriers because one day, the world will be yours.

Stop Referring To Your Boyfriend As Your Future Husband

Why it's dangerous to get ahead of yourself in a relationship.

2890

I am by no means a relationship expert.

I am three months into my first relationship ever, which is going quite well, but still, I do not know much about relationships in general.

All couples are different. They move at different paces, have different issues, and different quirks. However, one thing that I believe should apply to all couples, is how you should speak about marriage.

Couples that are just dating should not talk about their future marriage as if it is a given.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely believe in dating to marry. When looking at potential dating partners, I always think way far ahead into the future. I can not hang out with a guy without analyzing how his traits would translate into our future together. Every one of his quirks, opinions, and actions are compared with what I want in a future husband, father to my kids, and my forever BFF. Kind of weird and intense, but I can't help it.

Anyways, it can be hard to find the right person for you to date.

So, once you do find that one you can see yourself ending up with, it's pretty exciting! You want to spend all of your time with that person! And talk about them all the time! And dream about your future with them.

But, just because you do find the chosen one that you could see yourself marrying, does not mean you need to tell them that.

Saying things like "when we get married" and "once we're married" only sets you guys up for hurt.

Every time you talk about your marriage as if it's already set in stone, you are making a promise to your person. A promise that you will be getting married, and have this hypothetical life together.

But until there is a ring on someone's finger, a formal promise in the form of engagement, your hypothetical life together is just that, hypothetical.

Making plans about when that person is your husband is dangerous because you do not know whether he will actually be your husband or not. If you guys break up, you are not only losing your boyfriend but the husband that he was in your head.

So, if you are confident that the person you are dating is going to be your spouse, go ahead and get engaged. And if you are not ready for an engagement, you are not ready to talk about that person as if you are already a married couple.

So, hold off and keep those wedding bells in your head.
