ABOUT THE NEST

The Nest (www.thenest.com) started out as an online community of girls grappling with the emotional issues--and enormous to-do list--that couples face in the first few years of marriage. Created by the number one wedding website The Knot, The Nest is a 24-7 virtual married-best-friend who’s been there before. The site, the magazine, and the thousands of just-married members dish out advice on everything from how to get your permanent roommate to pick up his dirty socks, to how to inspect a property when you’re buying your first home, to foolproof recipes for entertaining the in-laws. Unlike single friends (who don’t have the experience to give tried-and-true advice) or mom (who has lots of experience but tends to give too much advice), Nesties, as we call ourselves, share experiences free of charge--and free of the worries that come with real-world friendships.
The Nest has grown up into a weekly webzine, a book series, and magazine--all 100% committed to the phrase “happily ever after.”

SMART (and FUN) ARTICLES, QUIZZES, CHECKLISTS, and ADVICE

LOVE: Relating, Relaxing, and Connecting
Dedicated to turning up the passion post wedding, The Nest editors take on married romance and how to make it work. Newlyweds can measure their sexual compatibility, hone their communication skills, and get helpful “Couple 102” advice from experts -- and each other -- on everything from spicing up their sex lives to in-law intervention. The Nest LOVE section also covers topics from furbabies to date nights and pregnancy myths and facts. The best part: road tests (where newlyweds reveal the best solution -- after testing three -- to couple conundrums)!
LIVING: Your Style, Your Space
Primed to help couples achieve domestic bliss, this section is packed with essential tutorials on merging spaces, entertaining and holiday prep, decorating and cleaning, plus wine quizzes, a recipe database, and more. Newlyweds can learn how to do things around this house like fold a fitted sheet, install crown molding, and make a perfect cup of coffee. Also provided: guides to making big purchases such as mattresses, vacuums, plasma screen TVs, and more.
LIFE: Your Money, Your Plan, Your Future
Designed to help young marrieds navigate the uncharted waters of adulthood, couples can study up on the fundamentals of mastering marital responsibilities -- from finances, insurance, and buying a home to organization and establishing future goals. Quizzes, checklists, worksheets, and tutorials make learning about these practical tasks fun. Also, twosomes can see how other real couples live; ease their car confusion (Is it better to lease or buy? What’s the deal with hybrids?); and get tips on planning (and budgeting for!) a romantic Trip for Two.

THE NEST COMMUNITY

No one understands the adventures of newly marrieds quite like other newlyweds. Whether “The Mrs.” needs some advice or “DH” just wants to vent, The Nest chat and message boards hook up thousands of couples from all over the country to share insane in-law stories, dish about the daily grind, and trade tips on everything from decorating to dealing with jealous unmarried friends.

CITY-BY-CITY GUIDES

Married life is full of all sorts of new beginnings. When newlywed couples are ready to buy a home, purchase new furniture, hire a personal trainer, or even find a great spa in their area, The Nest’s City-By-City Guides are a very helpful (and easy to navigate!) resource.

THE NEST BABY SHOP

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes -- well -- you know. But even if newlywed couples aren’t quite ready for the big step into parenthood, they undoubtedly know other couples who are. So, we created TheNestBabyShop.com to help them find everything tot-related. From sentimental, personalized baby and nursery essentials to unique favors for a stylish baby shower, TheNestBabyShop.com has an array of adorable, creative gifts for parents and their bundles of joy.
