Every day, people are flying across America. Some of those people lose their jewelry. Here’s just one example of how it could happen.

Breaking news: Men care a lot about how they look, they just hide it well. (Except for Kanye West, we all know how amazing he thinks he is…) Especially on their wedding day. The guy who is perfectly content to go out to dinner in jeans and his old college t-shirt wants to be uncharacteristically pulled together on his wedding day. Brides have a million options, from classic to cutting edge, and can be overwhelmed by the decision making process…but it’s a process they revel in. Men, on the other hand, don’t always know how to pull the look they want together, or what they can do to accessorize the perfect tux in a way that makes them feel like a million bucks.
Fear not! Here are 3 trends for summer that are easy to love.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting married this weekend, and despite her affection for the spotlight, she’s decided to ban posting on social media by her guests. Allegedly, the couple has gone so far as to have contracts drawn up.
“The contract bans guests from uploading anything on social media, taking any pictures and even talking about the big day with friends and family who weren’t invited to the wedding”, a source reveals to the Daily Star.
On the flip side, a recent survey done by David’s Bridal reveals that fewer than 15% of brides would go so far as to ban the use of social media on their big day. The W Hotel in New York even offers a “Social Media Wedding Concierge.” According to the W, “the concierge will also be responsible for creating a ‘wedding blog’ leading up to the big day, as well as posting Vines and Instagrams under your special hashtag. Just be sure to remind them that you prefer the ‘Mayfair’ filter.”Read More →
