  • Thank You Text?

    Just needed to vent here really quickly. I was a bridesmaid for a very close friend for her wedding in May.  My fiancé and I bought the couple a very nice, rather expensive, waffle maker that they had on their registry. When she opened her gift she sent me a text message saying how much she loved it and how excited she was to use it. About a week after their wedding, I received a very nice thank you card from the bride thanking me for being a part of her special day. She did not mention the gift at all. Now maybe I am biased seeing as I wrote thank you cards to my professors in college, and I was taught that thank you notes should go out ASAP, but we're going on 6 months here I am a little irritated. Text messages are not thank you notes.  Obviously, I can't force her to write one and I would never bring it up with her, but this rubs me the wrong way. Am I being too sensitive?
  • Civil Ceremony

    My fiancé and I are having a civil ceremony in less than 2 weeks and I am starting to feel a little nervous. I don't know what to expect at all; I've never been to one before. Could someone let me know what it generally entails?

    Have you checked out You can rent designer gowns at a fraction of the cost! I've been to two military balls with my fiance and I hate spending hundreds of dollars on a dress I'll never wear again. I do agree with the other women, your choices seem a just a little "prom-y." Regardless of what you wear, though, I'm sure you'll look stunning and your husband will be proud to have you on his arm.
