    Ashley Blazer Biden, a social worker and the daughter of Jill Jacobs Biden and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., married Dr. Howard Krein, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, this past Saturday in Wilmington, Delaware.

    "This is the right guy," the VP told People Magazine about his new son-in-law. "And he's getting a helluva woman."

    Biden escorted Ashley, the youngest of his three children, down the aisle in the same church where she was baptized. She looked ravishing in a custom silk mermaid gown by Vera Wang, featuring trendy illusion sleeves and a hand-cut tulle and organza petal skirt. According to an interview with The News Journal, the bride kept the dress a secret to everyone except her mother and Maid of Honor, so that her famous father would be surprised.

  • 10 Painless Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding

    Saving shortcuts that won't sacrifice your wedding style.Saving shortcuts that won't sacrifice your wedding style.

    What bride hasn't fantasized about her future wedding? We daydream about extravagant dresses, delicious cuisine, flowing drinks, dazzling rings...but the thought of paying all of this off afterwards is enough to ground us back to reality. However, with some creativity and time, you can slash wedding costs without sacrificing your overall style. Here are some saving shortcuts that my fiancé Corey and I (or other couples we know) have successfully used.

    1. Do yourself a favor and skip favors.

    Giving out favors is a wedding tradition, but it's one that Corey and I are likely skipping. When I look back at every wedding I've ever been to, I don't recall bringing home a single favor (and that doesn't mean the bride and groom didn't offer them). Say goodbye to cheesy tchotchkes-we promise your guests won't miss them!

    2. Rethink your entrées.

    Everyone looks forward to the wedding meal, but don't feel pressured to shell out for notoriously decadent (and pricey) fare. I

  • 'Devil Wears Prada' Character Takes the Plunge

    Revenge Wears Prada is expected for release in April 2013.Revenge Wears Prada is expected for release in April 2013.

    Our favorite fashion underdog, Andy Sachs, will return to the bookshelves next April in Revenge Wears Prada, a sequel to the 2003 bestselling novel Devil Wears Prada. The former assistant at Runway magazine will be even more lovable this time around, engaged to a gorgeous man and editing the best bridal magazine in the country, The Plunge.

    Author Lauren Weisberger will take readers through Andy's life as an engaged, working woman (something that many of us can relate to). She works at The Plunge with best friend and one-time enemy, Emily, as she balances the glamour of planning her wedding with a great career. But it's not always picture perfect- Andy's soured relationship with her dreadful ex-boss, Miranda Priestly, continue to get in her way.

    Revenge Wears Prada is expected for release in April 2013, exactly ten years since we all fell in love with the original. Until then, we can watch Anne Hathway and Meryl Streep in the movie rendition of Devil Wears Prada and hope for a

    Drew Barrymore is getting ready to walk down the aisle! Her wedding to art director Will Kopelman will take place this weekend at her estate in Montecito, California.

    The actress and expectant mom (she's reportedly expecting a girl) was spotted yesterday during her final gown fitting at Chanel in Beverly Hills. Former Charlie's Angels castmate and bridesmaid Cameron Diaz was there to lend a hand for her best friend.

    According to Us Weekly, Diaz has been "very involved" in the wedding. Earlier this month, she revealed to InStyle UK that Drew's fiancé told her about his plans to propose. "My girlfriends are like my soul sisters," she said. "I knew Drew was getting married before she did."

  • Would You Wear Uggs at Your Wedding?

    One thing you may not fully appreciate before the big day-you will be standing a lot. From the time we started taking pictures until after the first dance, I was on my feet in my brand new, gorgeous heels... and my feet were screaming for some relief.

    If you're looking for something super comfy to change into at your reception that's more fun than a pair of flats, check out the new UGG Australia "I Do" capsule collection, now available for pre-orders.

    The collection includes a jeweled boot with a Swarovski crystal button ($190), a sparkly sequin boot ($225) and a shearling-covered flip-flop ($70), which is perfect for your bridal prep time before the ceremony.

    Now, we're not advocating walking down the aisle in UGGs. But for a bride who doesn't want to wear heels all day, a comfortable shoe (that you can hide beneath your wedding gown!) is a must. As a winter bride myself, a pair of warm UGGs would've come in handy during those outdoor photos I just had to have.

    Knightley's spokesperson confirmed the happy news earlier this morning, but declined to discuss details of the proposal or when the wedding will be taking place. This will be the couple's first marriage.

    Knightley is best known for her roles in Pirates of the Caribbean and Atonement. She is starring in two upcoming films: sci-fi thriller Seeing a Friend for the End of the World (out in June) and Anna Karenina (which hits theaters in November).

    In addition to her acting chops, she also has serious style cred: She's the face of Chanel and has been a muse to Karl Lagerfeld. We can't wait to see which wedding gown designer she chooses!
