Favor Idea: All-Natural Water in Fun, Fruity Flavors


Hollywood’s youngest starlets are passing on the Starbucks, soda, and alcohol these days for a healthier beverage choice – HINT Essence Water, an all-natural water with a "hint" of natural flavor, and zero calories, sweeteners, or preservatives. (Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, Miley Cyrus, and The HillsLauren Conrad have all been spotted with one of these hot new waters in hand!)

It’s not uncommon for brides who throw summer or tropical weddings to gift their guests with personalized water bottles as favors to help them beat the heat during the reception. The HINT Essence Water packaging is so pretty, if you decide to give these out at your summer wedding, you won’t even need to decorate them! Plus, with flavor options like pomegranate-tangerine, blackberry, and honeydew hibiscus, your guests are sure to love these yummy thirst-quenchers (yes, we taste-tested them!). For your convenience, you can order them by the case online.

Wedding Guest Attire: How to Dress to Impress

Ashlee_beyonce_dresses2_3 The invitation requests that you dress like a beach goddess. Or maybe it says "outdoor elegance is a must." Whatever the words, the message is clear: Brides are now calling the shots when it comes to guest dress and style. Case in point: Beyonce Knowles wanted her wedding to Jay-Z to be a complete white-out, while rockin' newlyweds Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simspon requested that their guests match their Victorian-goth-meets-Alice in Wonderland affair by "dressing dark."

So how can you be a good guest while still maintaining your own sense of style? We say don't ever attempt to compete with the bride. Keep it cocktail length, don't show too much skin, and avoid the color white unless it's requested. If you've been asked to keep it light, we say show off your summer tan with this strapless Lauren by Ralph Lauren layered silk organza dress ($280). Is basic black your wedding mantra? Avoid any potential funeral-looking fashion faux pas by keeping it simple and chic. We're totally loving the sexy effortlessness of this See by Chloe zip front tank dress ($470).

Still stuck on what to wear? Check out our great expert advice on everything from the appropriate guest wedding attire to what colors to avoid.
