Every Wednesday, I bring you the best wedding stories, events and deals in Los Angeles and from around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!

I'm just about to get on a plane back to Los Angeles, and I can't wait to see The Boy again. I had an amazing time in my two hometowns, New York, where I was born, and D.C., where I really lived. Congratulations to Elizabeth and Auden, and Happy Birthday, Mommy!

Cool Wedding Thing of the Week:
The New York Times: Portraits From the New York City Marriage Bureau, 7/24/11 The is what love looks like. Believe it.

The Events:

Thursday, August 11
White Magnolia, a new upscale consignment shop in West Los Angeles, is having their grand opening event from 7-9pm. Brides can donate or sell their dresses, or pick up a Monique Lhuillier or Anne Barge dress at up to 50% off retail. AND proceeds from certain dresses will be donated to women's non-profit organizations in Los Angeles and across the country. I'm definitely going to be there, so RSVP to mailto:yes@magnoliadress.com and say Hi when you see me! 2500 S. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064

During the month of August, Alfred Angelo Bridal is giving one bride all of her bridesmaid dresses, for free. Do yourself a favor and go register.

Encore Bridal just got a large shipment in of pre-owned, high-end dresses, like this Pretty designed by Melissa Sweet. Time to head on over there, too.

Dolly Thicke - First the bad news - they're raising their prices for the first time in three years. Purchase in August to get your dress at the current price. Sadness. But, then comes the happy - OFF THE RACK SALE!!

See you at the end of the aisle, and in the dressing room,
