  • H and I were invited to a couple's July 7th wedding.  We could not go, but sent along a card with money in it with H's parents.  We have yet to receive a thank you, and neither have H's parents (we live with them while house hunting) and we are all …
  • I had my spray tan done on Thursday for a Saturday wedding.  The clothes I wore after the tan on thursday got stained (but it did wash off), but after I showered Friday afternoon nothing else stained.
  • I just talked to H's parents, and they are find with having Ozzy with them during the day, such a relief.  I told them I'll make sure his crate is set up with his bed, toys and treats everyday, so in the event they are leaving the house with the kid…
  • Thanks everyone.  We do keep him on a schedule and routine.  He knows when I'm leaving for work by the things I do in the morning (take him on a walk, pack my lunch bag, etc).  In fact, he will go downstairs when he sees me getting my lunch together…
  • @moonlightsilver, We don't want him to stay out and about with H's parents during the day because we are afraid he will get used to being with people all the time, and then when we eventually find a house and move he won't adjust well to being alone…
  • I used wedpics, worked out great.
  • I would just keep telling people you aren't registering and hope that you dont' end up with a lot of random gifts you don't want or won't use.
  • We did a first look, so all our photos were done before we got married.  We spent maybe 10 minutes after the ceremony taking a few more photos, and then headed into cocktail hour.  By the end of cocktail hour, we had greeted about 90% of our guests.…
  • I did a first look with bridal party and parents.  What happened was limo picked up myself and BM's and brought us too the location (about 15 minutes from getting ready location).  Groom and his BM were driven by groom's dad to first look location (…

  • 1. What was the most special moment of your wedding? Our first look moment.  I was so excited to see my soon to be husband that I was practically running up to tap him on the shoulder and the photographers had to yell at me to walk slower.  But seei…
  • For a wedding dress, or just in general?  If it's for wedding, I used the seamstress at the shop where I purchased my gown (The Wedding Dress in Portland, CT).  She did an excellent job and it was very reasonably priced.  I was able to order my gown…

  • Check out grassy hill lodge in derby, ct.  Martha will send you a menu where the prices already include tax.  There are no service charges, and gratuity is at your discretion (we tipped each wait person $100 I believe, and for a 115 person wedding w…
  • Grassy Hill Lodge in Derby, CT.  Meal prices range from 78-95 depending on your choices.  Their prices already include tax, and there is no service fees either.
  • If she doesn't get the dress, then she has taken herself out of the wedding.  If she doesn't purchase the dress, but you still want her to stand by your side, then let her wear whatever she wants, or request that she find any dress in the color your…
  • Yes!  We ended up having Anthony Decarlo because our original photographer (Eric Langlois of Raw Photo Design) passed away about a week and half before we got married.  We loved working with Anthony, he's got a great personality and even though we m…
  • My engagement ring and wedding band are engraved. The e-ring with the date we got engaged and the band with the date we got married.  My bands are both thin, but the engraving looks fine.
  • My friend used them for her wedding, I was not impressed.

  • Also, keep in mind that it can take a bit of time to get your photos and albums done, especially if your wedding/anniversary is in the summer.  I did my boudoir in mid april, and got my online album proofs in late may.  The album was then ready for …
  • @gracediva, I know it can sound awkward, but if you go with good friends, it's really a ton of fun.  All 3 of us were super nervous but we brought champagne and OJ and made mimosas while our makeup got done.  It also helps that Amanda's studio has 2…
  • Amanda Rose Photography is amazing!
  • Great! Salads are awesome and there are so many ways to create variety with them. You can add grilled chicken to them, steak, even shrimp. I also like to add a handful of craisins and almond slivers or some other type of nut topping. You can cho…

  • Our centerpieces were very simple.  Hydrangeas in a round glass bowl.  I believe she has a picture of them on her facebook page.  The flower girl was was essentially the same flowers in the bouquets but on a stick sort of.  if you google flower girl…
  • @teacherbride77, we had 1 bride bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 1 flower girl wand, 3 wrist corsages, and 7 boutonnieres and 15 centerpieces I believe.  My bouquet was $135, and the bridesmaid bouquets were smaller versions of mine at $50 each.  Flo…

  • It's out of Fairfield county, but check out the wedding dress in portland, ct.  I got my dress from there (an essence of australia gown) and had a really really great experience.  The shop is small, but they have a lot of dresses to choose from, and…
  • I agree with everything banana said.  Just remember, that since your FI's parents are contributing, they do have say in the guest list and might want to invite more than the number they are given.  I'm not sure how rational they are, but hopefully i…

  • I did boudoir photos. They were a surprise wedding gift and they blew FI's mind, he loved the album (i also got a disc of all the images).  I used Amanda Rose Photography.  Amanda does a party package, so if you find 2 other friends who are interest…
