  • Jim Gaffigan!!! But I'm not sure who I should send the invite to - his manager or publicist?
  • What kind of ideas are you looking for? You already have a cake topper...

  • We had prom at our reception venue. But, they've renovated since then. It's not that much different, they just made it brighter - golds and light greens instead of burgandy and browns.
  • [QUOTE]I think if FI made a horrible one time mistake and confessed to me, we could work through it. If he did it all the time with random women, or created another relationship/second life with someone else.... I wouldn't be able to. Posted by But…
  • That is a little nuts. Don't let her ridiculousness ruin your fun!
  • No, we haven't ordered them yet, that's just a stock photo but it's coming time for ordering so we have to start figuring this out.
  • I wouldn't. I would feel like I'm cheating or something.
  • Sadly, it was serious. I couldn't believe it because I never thought he'd be like that.
  • Katherine Stephens in Shorewood. She's fantastic and really reasonable. She's the one making my dress!
  • I just realized this yesterday, so I have to share. I like carrots and celery, but I need a dip for them. I haven't found a fat free ranch dip I like, but I found a great alternative by accident!!! Tostito's Bean and Cheese Dip!! It's the same amo…
  • I'm a 10-16 and haven't sent out mine either. Although I wanted to have them sent about a week ago. Ours came in with issues so we have to wait for re-prints. We should get them by Wednesday. And whatever day we get them, that's all we're doing the…
  • It's important to FI to go to more than one place - not sure why. Maybe we'll have to talk about it again.
  • When I was younger and had to make poster presentations (yes, before computers were popular), using a ruler, I would make REALLY light pencil lines to use as guides and then erase them when I was finished writing. The pen stayed and the pencil lines…
  • Don't give up! I had the same issue and then I actually switched advisors. They had to make up a hybrid degree for me (classroom and research), but it was the best thing I ever did for myself in grad school. Could you do something like this? I assum…
  • OMG!! Maureen!!! I know you from the Oct 10 board! I have some recomendations: TypeA (milwaukee) MMM (Milwaukee) Front Room Photography (Milwaukee) 5th street outside of Madison (choice #1 for wedding photog!) SLM in Madison (choice #2 for wedding …
  • Sorry the weather was so crappy for you. I'm glad you had a great time with the fam! It's always great when the FI passes the test! And congrats on the knit shawl, that is awesome!
  • I'm with you Ashley! Especially since it was such a big deal for me! I was so excited to give it (and it was a rather large gift for me... I'm VERY poor...) so it would have made me feel that much better/appreciated to have received a thank you note…
  • When I was MOH for a non-bar bride, we actually turned it into a sleepover! After the games and drinks and food, we had some more drinks and wound down with some foot spa things. We used dish tubs, filled them with water and fizzy balls and put some…
  • OMG, you are so right. Thank you!!!!!! OK, now I feel like this post can be deleted. Edit: I was just thinking about the other weddings I've been in/FI has been in and they dragged the whole wedding party around. But that is definitely not necessa…
  • OK!! I run away wih my tail between my legs!! But look up the definition of judge and it says nothing about "bad taste". Sorry to ruffle everyone's feathers so much. I've heard from lots of others that they rather enjoyed their head table. I guess t…
  • That's not too many bags. We're thinking we're going to have about 60! We're putting in cookies from FI's hometown, Ripin' Good Cookies and like PP said, some pamphlets or maps for the area where we're getting married. We also were hoping to put in …
  • In Response to Re: s/o of I judge you when...: [QUOTE]Wait. Why do you judge sweetheart tables? So it's in BAD taste to allow your bridal party to sit with their friends and s/o? Damn. I sucked then. Posted by mag920[/QUOTE] I didn't know that …
  • Here's my inspiration! It's Mori Lee Style 2147. I can't wait to have mine actually in my hands!!!
  • It's not "wood lodge" feel, but personally, I think it is beautiful - The Grain Exchange. They can accomidate up to 500. Actually, you might want to just call Bartolotta's and ask them because they have a bunch of very large places. I know there's o…
  • Could you just use photoshop or something (if available) to re-color one of the damasks you like?
  • I second the Gold Bond Ultimate. I think it actually heals the skin and it feels really good when you put it on (no stinging). Oh, and the Satin Hands thing is pretty awesome, too. I love the emolient (sp?) cream the most. I use it at night.
  • FI is in charge of GM gifts, but he's thinking either monogrammed pocket watches or humidors with cigars.
  • In Response to Re: No Thank You Note? XP with my Club Board: [QUOTE]Ditto PPs. If your friend saw no problem with repeatedly asking you where your gift to him was, then I would have no problem asking if they actually got it since the douchenozzle d…
  • I'm looking for the same thing (different colors, though). I found a website that is a little cheaper, but it's in the bookmarks of my laptop which is being fixed right now. Once I get it back, I can post it on here. It's about $50 cheaper to buy 5…
  • In Response to Changing our wedding date: [QUOTE]One good thing so far about the date change is that the venue we originally looked at is available in July while Aug 7 was already booked. I am soooo excited and plan on seeing Loulu Palms this week …
