27 Jul: Something Borrowed, Lots Of Blue: Best Buy Veterans Say ‘I Do’

They say love is patient. And in the case of Tonya and Tharun Trammel, it waited quietly on the sidelines for over a decade.

For 15 years, Tonya and Tharun worked side by side as co-workers at the Best Buy store in Independence, Missouri. They didn’t chat much until the death of a mutual friend started to draw them together in 2012. In the years that followed, each went through a divorce.

“We both struggled through a dark period of our lives, but instead of grieving alone, we chose to find comfort in one another,” Tharun said.

21 Jan: Employees Tie the Knot Inside Indiana Best Buy Store

There’s that old wedding saying about something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Well, this couple had plenty of blue. They got married in a Best Buy store.

Caleb Mace and Taylor Spurlock exchanged vows Thursday evening in the warehouse of the store where they both work in Muncie, Indiana.

Why there? “It is special. It is where we met,” Taylor said. “We like it here.”

17 May: Here’s the Tech Couples Want This Wedding Season

We’re in wedding season, folks. An average of 2.4 million nuptial ceremonies are performed in the U.S. each year, with 44,230 taking place each weekend.

That’s a lot of vows, cake and chicken dances.

For many couples, it’s crunch time to knock out their to-dos before the “I Dos.” That means finalizing attendee lists, setting menus, communicating with vendors and filling out wedding registries.

When it comes to the registry, modern couples are ditching the candlesticks and china for blenders and cameras.

06 Jul: The Millennial Wedding: Bring On The Tech

These days, soon-to-be married couples are far more likely to ask for a UHD TV than china dishes. Grooms play a more significant role than they did in weddings 20 years ago. Nuptials now are more elaborate and embrace more traditions.

Those are some of the highlights of a new survey comparing feedback of couples married within the past five years with those married 20 or more years ago.

Best Buy commissioned the study with Wakefield Research to dive deeper into the world of today’s brides and grooms, following the launch earlier this year of Best Buy’s very own wedding registry.

16 Feb: Why We’re the First to Register for Best Buy’s New Wedding Registry

When it comes to wedding planning, my buddies told me to get excited about the taste testing, but not so much about going to register for wedding gifts. I understood where they were coming from. Hours of reflecting on china and glassware are not necessarily my idea of a good time.

However, my enthusiasm for bridal registries took a major change for the better this past weekend when my fiancée, Hannah, and I became the very first couple to register on Best Buy’s new wedding registry.
