Hot Travel Trend: K-Pop Style Wedding Photography in South Korea

Hot Travel Trend: K-Pop Style Wedding Photography in South Korea Aug 12th, 2013 at 3:30PM: one-11, Flickr We've all heard of destination weddings, but would you travel to another country just to have your wedding photos taken?

Some Chinese feel that South Korea is more sophisticated when it comes to things like fashion, makeup and...

A Traveler in the Foreign Service: My Secret Foreign Service Wedding

A Traveler in the Foreign Service: My Secret Foreign Service Wedding Mar 19th, 2012 at 11:30AM: Today is my ten-year wedding anniversary, sort of. Does it make sense to celebrate a wedding that was a secret, five-minute affair that was capped off at a nearby Taco Bell over chalupas and 99-cent churros? I asked my wife to marry me just days before joining the Foreign Service in 2002 and we had to set a wedding date without knowing what country we would be moving to or when we would depart....

Austin cabin called 'Austin Heaven' really is like Heaven

Austin cabin called 'Austin Heaven' really is like Heaven Feb 24th, 2012 at 1:00PM: There's a cedar log cabin tucked away on a 20 acre plot of land just south of Austin called Austin Heaven. I first discovered the property through Airbnb. The photos depicted a gleaming hand-built cedar cabin with modern appliances. I closed my eyes for a moment to relish the scent of cedar, a scent I've taken enough deep gulps of in recording studios to have it imprinted in my mind. As I...

Photo of the day - Non-royal wedding

Photo of the day - Non-royal wedding Apr 29th, 2011 at 5:00PM: Well, it's all over. Whether you woke up in the middle of the night to watch Will and Kate get married or ignored the deluge of media coverage, today's historic Royal Wedding has said "I do" and we can all breath a collective sigh of relief that we can stop hearing about it. We're still feeling a bit romantic here at Gadling, so today's Photo of the Day is of another wedding couple leaving the...

Become a monk or Muslim for a month Apr 29th, 2011 at 10:30AM: If you really want to "go local" on your next vacation, have you considered changing your religion? A new program in Turkey offers guests a chance to be Muslim for a month in order to foster cultural awareness.

Photo of the day - Stormtroopers in Las Vegas

Photo of the day - Stormtroopers in Las Vegas Mar 24th, 2011 at 5:00PM: Have you ever walked down the street and seen something amazing and cursed yourself for not having a camera? Lucky for us, Flickr user mciccone640 had his camera and shot today's Photo of the Day of couple of robots stormtroopers* in Las Vegas. I wonder if there was a convention in town or if the guys were just wearing costumes for luck in the casinos. Perhaps a theme wedding? Hope they had a...

Already sick of the Royal Wedding? There's a barf bag for that!

Already sick of the Royal Wedding? There's a barf bag for that! Feb 19th, 2011 at 10:00AM: I don't know about you, but I'm already sick of the royal wedding. Something about hard-drinking aristocrats getting married on television while the peasants gawp upsets just about every sense of justice and decorum I have. It seems I'm not alone. British artist Lydia Leith has designed a Royal Wedding Sick Bag. The Brits are generally understated in their language, so they say "sick" instead...

A travel guide to the 2011 Oscar movies

A travel guide to the 2011 Oscar movies Feb 2nd, 2011 at 4:00PM: The 83rd annual Academy Awards are coming up in a few weeks and the Oscars race is on. This year's nominations contained few surprises, with many nods for Brit period piece The King's Speech, Facebook biopic The Social Network, and headtrip Inception. While 2010's ultimate travel blockbuster Eat, Pray, Love failed to made the cut, there's still plenty to inspire wanderlust among the Best Picture...

Jan 19th, 2011 at 2:30PM: Portuguese flight attendant Vera Silva got the inflight surprise of her life when her boyfriend picked up the P.A. microphone to propose to her. While Ms. Silva was busy preparing drinks in the back of the plane, her boyfriend told her that he was on board because he loves her, and because he wants to "ask her a question". With the help of her fellow crew members and the pilot, the proposal...

Indian hotel managers face jail time for Katy Perry noise pollution Oct 30th, 2010 at 11:30AM: Indian officials are investigating complaints of noise pollution from the Aman-i-Khas hotel where Russel Brand and Katie Perry recently tied the knot. During their wedding reception, party noise exceeded the 45 decibel limit, and that means someone is in trouble. An official for the Sawaimadhopur district already said that the newly weds will not be charged, but that hotel management is not...

The Vermont couple, who describe themselves as "lifelong fans of Halloween," will wed on the steps of a haunted house at Universal Orlando on Oct. 15.

The new horror-filled wedding packages include options such as having a "chainsaw drill team" at your nuptials, and taking a post-ceremony hearse ride through the fog-filled streets of...

Ten reasons to have your wedding reception at a hotel

Ten reasons to have your wedding reception at a hotel Jul 9th, 2010 at 10:00AM: I'm getting married this fall, and I chose to have my wedding reception at a hotel. This is not because I'm a travel writer (and they have no idea that's what I do; I'm not getting any special treatment). The reason was actually that I'm getting married in my hometown of Minneapolis, but I live in New York and my fiance is from Cleveland, so between us, we have a lot of out-of-town guests...

Galley Gossip: 5 tips for traveling with a wedding dress

Galley Gossip:  5 tips for traveling with a wedding dress Jul 7th, 2010 at 9:30AM: From the moment my husband got down on one knee and proposed in the sand at sundown, I knew I wanted a destination wedding. When it came time to choose a wedding dress, I only considered styles that were sleek and simple. Basically I had to find something I could pack inside a suitcase since we had booked tickets on a regional carrier. Most of these airlines do not have closets or decent overhead...

From four-wheeling to cattle roping, saying 'I do' just got a little more adventurous

From four-wheeling to cattle roping, saying 'I do' just got a little more adventurous Jun 26th, 2010 at 10:00AM: Weddings were never my thing. Between the dress, the invitations, the cakes, the chaos - the concept is too overwhelming for me to digest. I've participated and planned dozens of weddings for my nearest and dearest and while I couldn't be happier for their nuptials, I'd be the first one barefoot on an island eloping without witness if I were to get married (sorry, Mom). But for those who want a...
