August 2013 Weddings

Congrats & Welcome!

Congratulations on your engagement and welcome to the boards!

RailWayWifeis your Mod for the August 2013 board so if you have any questions or concerns, please PM me.

Some things for you to remember:

1) We may talk about a lot of things, not just wedding related information. Many people actually become friends and know each other IRL. That's a good thing, embrace it!

2) We welcome all--the marrieds, newly engaged, grooms, mothers of brides, bridal party members and people just interested in weddings. All opinions are welcome.

3) Vendors are not welcome. Don't come on here advertising your business.

 4) Don't ask a question unless you actually want an answer. You will hear all sides, people who agree with you and people who disagree with you. Be prepared for that.

5) Search through prior posts, there is a good chance someone has just answered a question similar to yours. No one wants to read the same question and post the same answers over and over again.

6) Don't post ANY personal information. This is a public message board and ANYONE can read this. Personal info includes phone numbers, full name (esp last name), email ( make one up for message board info), work info.. etc. If your screen name has your full name or email in it, change it. It's for your protection.
