  • I think it is OK to not extend the bar past 10 pm - if your guests want to drink after that, let it be on their dime.  There is no "rule" in wedding receptions that say you "must" have an open bar all the time.  Do what you can afford, pure and simp…
  • I would call and ask them, as MilkDuds said.  Form a Plan B, and remember - it is not the end of the world.
  • i did not know there was one - I will put in a request today!
  • I am decorating my reception with lots of balloons - I think it fits with the party atmosphere, plus the kids have something to take home with them after the party!
  • In Response to Re: Maid of Honor: Not attending rehearsal dinner!: [QUOTE]Don't listen to anyone. She should be helping you. You should replace her. Posted by LovinLong11[/QUOTE] This is the worst advice ever.  So what if your MOH will not …
  • I am doing that too - I have a main gift for all the ladies picked out already - matte satin wrislets from DB - but then I will put something personally tailored to each of them in the bags. 
  • I have to agree with PPs - be cautious about how much planning you are doing for your wedding until you know FOR SURE that the divorce is finalized.  Glitches in the court happen all the time.  My ex hubby and I split in December 2006 - about 2 we…
  • Colors are the hardest to decide on.  I like the idea of the silver and lavendar - it will complement your dress nicely, the yellow is also pretty My colors are blue, silver, green and brown.  My ladies will be in blue dresses, the Jr BM and FG in…
  • Just beautiful!  I go back Sept. 11 to try on dresses again and hopefully pick one! Congrats!!!
  • My budget is $5 -6K for approx. 125 people, but we are having an afternoon wedding (2 pm ceremony) so that will cut way down on food costs.  I am in Woodland, NC, which is about 25 miles from the VA border, less than 2 hours from VA Beach.  My big…
  • I would check out Bridesign.com for your flowers.  They ship directly to you, pre-made bouquets and they have really good prices.  Good Luck!
  • If you are on a really tight budget, check your local craigslist listings for a DJ - or ask a family member/friend to Ipod DJ for you with their equipment. Hope you find someone on such short notice!
  • Hang in there - it will go by quickly and we will see you on Friday!
  • Try this website: http://www.glasscaketops.com/ I am thinking of ordering from them - FI and I LOVE music, and I want our cake topper to have a musical theme, but we also really like hummingbirds, so I am having a tough choice here - thankfully I …
  • Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but many companies have an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that not only refers you to a therapist, but also allows 5 free sessions, per year, per issue/problem (stress, financial advice,family matters, etc…
  • Personally, I think it is very rude to smash and rub cake into the face of the man/woman you just pledged to marry - kinda goes against the love honor and cherish vows.  At my first wedding, our minister commented on it and said he thought it was of…
  • You know ladies........ We could write a book together -  "1001 reasons why they are Xs"  LOL Course, there is probably already one out there! My ex owes me over $4K in child support, plus he is paying for another kid from his ex before me.  The …
  • Ditto with the PPs. 
  • I am not sure about songs or music but my MOH did it this way: Introduced each BM/GM pair as they were in the wedding Introduced MOH/BM Introduced Bride/Groom Not sure when or if they introduced the FG/RB or not.  As each "couple" was introduc…
  • I have all the original Star Wars movies, the Lego games for the Wii, and want to get the prequels.  I went to see SW 3 (the last prequel) with a co-worker when it was in the theater since we both got to leave work early that day.  When we met up …
  • I am at a 1 or a 2.  I got the invites this week, got the flowers settled, going to do some cake baking this weekend possibly(MOH is making the cake for us), looking forward to whipping the guys' butts at canasta hand and foot this Saturday night (s…
  • In Response to Re: Friend Invites: [QUOTE]In Response to Friend Invites : We had a similar situation with H's friends.  We made our cuts by going through the guest list and asking ourselves "if we were looking to make Friday night plans, would we c…
  • You all are too funny!  I have not started a registry yet but I will soon.  I know I will be lurking also when it gets closer to the wedding.
  • Morning all - Happy Good Friday and Earth Day! I am sitting here at work by myself because the PRN nurse decided she "was unavailable" yesterday and today, and I messed up on the staffing request so there is no one to cover today.  So, here I sit w…
  • Have you spoken with anyone in your church that was married there and used the gym for their reception?  You may be able to get some good ideas.  I really do not think anyone is going to worry about what the walls look like - no need to get elaborat…
  • Since your FI's sons are young men, why not ask them if they want to do something in the ceremony?  If they decline, they can still be guests.  They are old enough to decide if they want to participate or not. When H and I got married, we did a fam…
  • On our June 2011 board, there is someone who made fake carnation pompanders for her wedding for about $12 each.  Her sn is wicked_faery, and she posted some awesome pics of them! The "almost dripping wet" gives me pause - I would not want to carry …
