Designed by a dietitian to make reaching a goal easier, you can choose your proteins and switch up your schedule, all while tracking your progress on Snap’s app. Use code TIDBITS on your first meal plan and get $20 off through July 31.

2. The Dance Lessons // Prepare for your first dance at Love Dance Houston, the newest warehouse-art loft venue in the Washington Arts District. The venue is also available to book for weddings, rehearsal dinners and engagement parties. Hit the Wedding Prep BYOB Workshop June 29 or July 13 and learn to twirl and dip with other engaged and newlywed couples. Or, book 3 private lessons for $260 (regularly $360).

3. The Destination Wedding // Get wed your way at W Austin, and as a thanks you'll be treated to bonus Starpoints® to use towards an exotic honeymoon in Hawaii, Paris, Bora Bora and more. The downtown hotel provides a brilliant backdrop for a wedding along with perks like a suite for the bride and groom, a complimentary champagne toast for guests and more.

4. The Planning Event // The Bridal Extravaganza Show takes place July 21-22. In its 34th year, the event is your chance to take in two days of fashion shows, taste cakes, meet photographers and get tons of ideas for your big day.

5. The Honeymoon // Want a 5-star honeymoon? Turn to trusted local travel guru Anne Bluntzer of Bluntzer Travel, who specializes in luxury honeymoon experiences. Chat with her to plan an unforgettable trip, ranging from a single Virtuoso property, a safari to Africa, a trip to Abu Dhabi, pictured, and anywhere in between. Ask how you can get Virtuoso amenities at Esperanza, Las Ventanas, the One & Only Palmilla and the Resort at Pedregal.

6. The Ring // Each Forevermark diamond at Lewis Jewelers has an inscription stating that the diamond meets all standards of beauty, uniqueness and responsible sourcing. The Forevermark collection is available at both their Uptown and Clear Lake stores. Lewis Jewelers boasts an impressive selection of engagement rings and wedding rings for both men and women, as well as watches, designer fashion jewelry and special occasion pieces.

7. The Venue // Celebrate your wedding in grand, ZaZa fashion. Choose between the Museum District and Memorial City hotels - both have a variety of unique event spaces, from elegant ballrooms to glittering poolside retreats and cozy lounges fit for a rehearsal dinner. Or, book a suite for your bachelorette and bachelor party staycations. Either way, ZaZa’s event planners are available to fill in all the luxe details. 

8. The Desserts // Perfect for favors or the dessert table at any wedding event, Houston-based Miss J's Bake Shop will hand-paint iced cookies in any customized design you want, from a warm Texas greeting, pictured, to Rosé All Day brunch favors, champagne bottles or your pretty new monogram. They're as tasty as they are post-worthy.
