    [QUOTE]Birthday parties at pricey bars . I mean, I totally want to go out for your birthday, but can you pick a place where I can get a drink (other than beer) for less than $15? Please?  <strong>Hastag-ing anything when you're not on Twitter. I swear, if my sister posts one more picture with #boyfriend #love #luckygirl! I may have to slap her.</strong>

    Does she use instagram? I know a lot of people put hashtags on their pics via Instagram and then it also posts on Facebook.

    OH MY GOD MY SISTER DOES THIS SAME SH*T AND I WANT TO HIT HER EVERY TIME

  • still - we did the unity candle, but it had some religious significance for us.  I don't like the "sand ceremony".  that's just weird.  I actually use the main candle from our unity candle set as decoration in my house.

    I am also prefer non-matchy bridal parties.  however, my mom was truly BSC during my engagement and wedding planning, and since they were helping foot the bill...  we had matching BMs and GMs.  I am still slightly sad about it.

    I'm not a big fan of those ceremonies either, Still. Although, my step sister did one where they had a box with a bottle of wine and 2 glasses inside and they each put in a letter to the other person for in the future. I thought that was pretty cute.

    Sometimes my posts on FB have hashtags because I cross post between FB & Twitter. Usually for work.

    And we just had a conversation in the office that included the spoken words "hashtag: sarcasm."

    Oops.

    But, I also love Katy Perry. And redheaded sluts. So, there's that.

    Yeah, I don't understand having sand as decoration in the house. I think a candle is more usable.

    I think my favorite thing was the post in Recap and Withdrawal who said that she was concerned that the sand in her sand ceremony vase was evaporating.

  • I did a sand ceremony at my wedding (the first go around) and apparently I am le dumb, because our blue and white sand just mixed into a nasty mess. I was actually slightly embarrassed because I had seen several weddings do this before and it went perfectly. I guess I should have taken a class. Now I'm bitter towards it, haha!

  • we teased about using beans instead of sand for a "bean ceremony", since H is Mexican/Mixe.  we were going to use brown beans (for him) and white beans (for me).  this is how I feel generally about sand ceremonies.  I have trouble taking them seriously.

    we obviously didn't use beans, but as part of a wedding shower gift we got two bags of  beans...  white and brown.  it was a funny joke back on us.  :)
