  • Major problem for me!   If I use many common mattifying products, my skin is still shiny but with dry flaky patches.  My skin is the bane of my existence. Try dabbing some Clinique pore minimizer / mattifier on trouble spots after your moisturizer. …
  • Sounds good to me.  I could go for some fried chicken right about now.  Yum!
  • Back out now before you actually end up living with her.  She sounds like a PITA, and clearly unable to take care of herself like a normal adult.   
  • Some people just aren't into wedding planning.  I'm not, when it isn't my wedding.  I can't stand when women get consumed with wedding planning and can't shut up about it.  I don't talk to anyone about my plans unless directly asked for an update. S…
  •   These are similar to the ones that I got from Zappos, but much less expensive at $40. The heel is higher, but if you plan to change anyways (and for such a good price) it is an option!  http://www.6pm.com/martinez-valero-dalton-white-satin?mr:ref…
  • I would say skip the "save the date" products.  These days, I think that they are largely a marketing scam.  The point is to let people know about your impending marriage but, really, all you have to do is tell a few friends and family members and n…
  • Depending on how their hair will be done, you could also go for slim green headbands. You can get satin or beaded ones and either suits a summery look.  Personally, I would mix it up, so some BMs could wear ballet flats, others heels in the same…
  • Good luck!!!  I know that in planning guides they say go with this day or this month to get a discount, but every vendor with whom I spoke in Ottawa said them's the rates, period.  I may not have hit up the right vendors ... but it started to seem t…
  • Canon in D for the BMs, and Delibes "Flower Duet" for me.  We're having a violin and cello duo play the music for the ceremony (which will be outside).
  • I give wedding gifts to people because they are getting married -- not because they have fed me at a dinner.  I would still get them a gift but wouldn't spend a great deal.  Depends on how close they are to me ... maybe something up to $50.
  • I don't think being away for two months constitutes "going away" or "farewell" as most people would understand it. I worked abroad for two months, and it would have seemed weird to me to get a "going away" party in advance.   But you really don'…
  • What colour are you looking for?  There is also Ann Taylor online but they have a smaller selection of colours than J.Crew. 
  • I think we both surprised ourselves. I made a note to myself to check regularly (as discontinued items are a recurring issue with our store) leading up to the wedding. And then checked recently and was THRILLED to see that guests have started buying…
  • I'm in Ottawa!   We're getting married June 12 at the Chateau Laurier.  Countdown is on!  :-)
  • Oh, and I just looked, the silk tricotine dresses in "warm fig" are ... ON SALE!!!  
  • Thanks for your views, ladies!  Much appreciated!  :-)
  • In Response to Re: Reply Postcard: [QUOTE]3x5 is too small http://pe.usps.com/businessmail101/mailcharacteristics/cards.htm Those are the guidelines from USPS. It must be at least 3.5x5. Posted by mandybear7[/QUOTE] My bad.  You're right -- min…
  • We are hoping to have the song Hoppipolla by Sigur Ros for our recessional.  It may not be possible with our violin and cello duo (waiting to hear back from the musicians) but it is possible to get guitar sheet music for the song.  I think it is a w…
  • We avoided the situation with "[our names] request the pleasure of your company as they join in marriage ..." wording our our invitation with no mention of parents.  We are paying for most of the wedding. FI's parents contributed some funds towards …
  • I don't think you *need* to replace her.  There's nothing wrong with going ahead with an uneven number of girls and boys.   That said, I think you can ask someone else, but it depends on your relationship with her.  My MH had to back out a coupl…
  • I went through an articling process and have a few suggestions for your consideration: 1. The tone is a bit too excited / young.  I would tone down the gushy adjectives such as "extremely fortunate / an honour to continue / overwhelmed by kindne…
  • Most of my tricks have been time-savers rather than money savers.  Like finding a retail bridesmaid dress at J.Crew online.  I just picked the colour and fabric, BMs simply ordered their choice in style and had them delivered at home.  No stress, no…
  • The Caparros Halo shoes ARE adorable!!!    
  • Mine are 4 x 6.  I think 3 x 5 is common, too.  I would suggest keeping them fairly standard as the post office won't mail them if they're too small ... and you'll have to pay for postage if too big ... 
  • Thanks for the tips.  I have become slightly less compulsive about checking our registry ... :-)
  • The Chateau wouldn't really let us book the ceremony on the terrace without booking another room inside as Plan B, especially after the weather this past summer. Which is annoying as, in an ideal world, we won't need it but still have to pay for it.…
  • Thanks for the tips, ladies!  I'll check out the other online tools.  All else fails, I'll just start using my seating chart to keep track.  I've been plunking names in as the RSVPs roll in ... such a pain, though, really do like the format on the K…
  • Go to Italy!!!  In the big picture, a $2000 difference will only go so far towards furniture and real estate, but you'll have your memories of a honeymoon in Italy -- such a romantic country -- for the rest of your lives together! I spent 2 week…
  • I received an invitation to a wedding reception only.  I wasn't a family member or a close friend of the couple -- just a casual friend of the groom.  At first, I thought that the ceremony was going to be at the reception venue, but then realized th…
