Netflix’s Say I Do stars share tips for throwing a wedding in quarantine

Among the many industries put on hold during the age of COVID-19 lockdowns is wedding season. Our refrigerators are covered with “Save the Date” invites that surpassed their expirations. Social media is flooded with photos of couples, unable to celebrate with a dream ceremony, choosing a more private, backyard-style setting in the meantime. Quarantine, after all, can’t delay love. That’s where the three stars of Say I Do come in.

Interior designer Jeremiah Brent, fashion designer Thai Nguyen, and chef Gabriele Bertaccini know a thing or two about throwing a wedding, no matter the restrictions. On Netflix’s Say I Do (now available to stream), they surprised eight deserving couples—who, for various reasons, couldn’t have their big days—with luxurious dream weddings from scratch.

Life looks a lot different for people now as opposed to a year ago when this trio of creative gurus filmed their show, but they have some ideas

Retirement in Australia offers expats a high quality of life and an opportunity to enjoy their retirement in a spacious, pollution-free environment that has an abundance of natural resources and beauty hot spots.

Why Costume Design For Teen TV Shows ‘Work Twice as Hard’ For Emmy Recognition

It may have more to do with who’s watching the shows, as opposed to what the characters are wearing.

Sex and the City,” “Big Little Lies,” “Russian Doll” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.” “Gossip Girl,” “PEN15,” “grown-ish” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” What these shows all have in common?
