  • I absolutely agree. I just want to tell people "nope not ready at all, I'm holidng out for David Tutera to show up next week". The RSVPs were the WORST! The biggest pain point of the entire wedding was anything dealing with the guest list. Mover…
  • If they are anything like my parents a nice card with a handwritten note of your appreciation would probably be better than anything you can buy in a store. Do that maybe a small token and then get them what you would like when you are more financia…
  • I used the same one but omitted the "Please help yourself..." lines.
  • I am having my wedding at Ridgecrest. We were considering an after party and they showed us Auradell. It is TINY!! And I doubt a wheelchair can easily maneuver around in there. there are two pillars in the middle of the room and two walls that separ…
  • I think the spa idea is great one and then after have everyone come back to someone's house and have food that you and the other bridesmaids made that meet her dietary needs/restrictions. You can then finish off the night with board games or the Wii…
  • Would you consider fake flowers for corsages?  you can get flowers pretty cheap at Michael's or AC Moore type places (they also have a lot of coupons in the weekly paper). Ask the staff there for help in deciding how to arrange them. Or my cousin d…
  • Love this show!! I am sad about Adam Levine's arm....What a nice arm... I am not sure how this season is going to play out. I think the Asylum thing has been done but hopefully there will be some crazy twists other than "creepy doctor experimentin…
  • Hmmm...I'm trying to put myself in your shoes.  I would like to think it wouldn't bother me but if I'm honest it probably would. It shouldn't because like you said not too many people will be at your wedding that were at hers but it might be somethi…
  • One more thing: sniqueaway.com is a site that offers discounts on hotels that have the highest trip advisor rating. As you will probably be planning the honeymoon further out then the sales are available (they are usually only offered for a few mont…
  • You look beautiful in both and simply can't go wrong with either one. But the second jumped out at me and gave me that "Wow"  that most brides are hoping for!
  • 1. Are you a Republican/Democrat or other? Democrat - though I think they are all self seving sleezes.   2. Do you believe in gay marriage? Yes. What is everyone so worried about?  3. Pro-life/Pro-choice? Pro-choice 4. Believe in…

  • I'm indecisive too. I also end up regreting my decisions if made too quickly. If it were me (and its not so take this for what its worth), the venue is the priority. If there really isn't any where else available in your budget you might just have …

  • We are open bar for the whole wedding, between ceremony and reception, cocktail hour, dinner, and the rest of the night including after party. My fiance wouldn't even hear of having the bar close during dinner hour. We are also providing a shuttle…
  • This has actually been a source of a lot of disagreements between FI and I. he would like the WP seated among the guests and I would rather them (and their dates/SO) to be in a "special" place. I think we are pretty much in agreement now however t…
  • I was lucky enough to be in Venice on this date so I'm completely late but so excited! Let the countdown begin!
  • We are aiming for French Polynesia. We haven't decided yet on Tahiti, Fiji, or Bora Bora. Coming from the East Coast it will be a really long flight...actually two flights. So instead of throwing a third flight in we might choose based on where you …
  • Thank you all for your help! I will definitely need to grab a note pad as I didn't remember that. And some water too. Great tips! I'll let you know how is goes!
  • I'm going to go against the grain myself, as I am a bride (and by the way I HATE surprizes and its generally because of this sort of situation happening) and I will have one bridal shower in my life...the Red Sox (or insert favorite sports team) pla…

  • I completely agree and am glad i'm not the only one. I have gone to a few other boards to lurk but what I found was shameful! The way some of these posters talk to each other is awful. I actually saw one post where the original poster was getting ch…

  • Congratualations! My advice is just relax and get your thoughts in order. I was so excited I wanted to get everything done immediately and not that I've had issues but there were moments when I wish I thought about it a teensy bit more. Good advice…
  • You said you just moved into your new home in June? A friend of mine asked for gift cards to Lowes/Home depot so they could get bigger home projects done. How about furniture? Places like Raymour and Flanigan have registry type things where people c…
  • We went this past weekend with the thought of opening a small registry at Pier 1...they don't have registries. So we went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and the woman told us we could but encouraged us to wait until March. So we will do it then. I think we…
  • No, I'm not even starting to look until October. I change my mind alot and I can't even pick a style from pictures! I'm all over the place with what I may want!
  • I'm up in the air about it. And have been thinking about it all week too. I'm getting married about an hour away from where I live. So I haven't decided if we will get hair/makeup before we go to the site or go to the site first and have it done the…
  • You are absolutely allowed to make acceptions for special guests especially since it is your niece/nephew. My FI's sister is due any day now and my brother and sister in law are having a baby in March and both babies will be welcome (though FI's si…
  • there are so many shades of pink you will have your pick! Good Luck! I'm September 14th too!
  • I am a first time Aunt!!! I'm so excited and so in love with my new little nephew who was born last week. We saw him Friday and are going to see him again on Saturday. My FI and I are a super spoiling Aunt and Uncle and have been buying all kinds of…
  • Mine's a frustrated vent...I am putting off buying a new car until next year when my student loans are paid off and the wedding is near if not over. I live 3 miles from work so barely use my car which will be 10 years old in November (I bought it br…

  • You can also get a stamper made. I got one for our return address label. I think it was less than $15 and came in less than a week. rubberstamps.com
