  • Vases found a new home.  Thanks!

  • We used "Mario Kart Love Song" for the Wedding Party, "Rose's Theme" for the Bride & Groom Entrance, and "I Am The Doctor" for the Recession.  We had a harpist learn arrangements for them, so we still got some live music, which was important to …
  • I had 6 go from Yes to No.  It was before I turned in final numbers, but it still hurt and kinda sucked. 
  • I looked at Ballroom at Church street, but decided it was so big for our relatively smaller guest list (sitting at under 60 at the moment).  It was 3 to 3-and-a-half thousand dollars for the whole space, which can be used for ceremony and reception.…
  • Everyone keeps commenting on how calm and together I seem for being under 1 month from wifehood.  It's funny because I don't feel calm or together, I feel kinda like I'm sprinting around a track at my 6th grade track and field day.  Exhausted, tired…
  • We are definitely doing one.  It was one of those things that I never really considered doing the traditional "On the way to the altar" way.  I really like the idea of having a private moment with just us, where we get to be totally us without every…
  • For the life of me, I can't figure jewelry out.  I need GOLD based jewelry (color, not material), since I'm wearing a gold dress, but I am having a really hard time finding something delicate and lacy like traditional bridal jewelry that is in gold …
  • I just went to Applebees, sat at the bar at 3pm on a Sunday and told the bartender what was up.  She showed me the recipe book and recommended things based on strength, color, and taste.  I was done in 2 hours, and got to eat while I was doing it.  …
  • I am having a program to tie-into my theme and to give guests a heads-up on things that are going to be a little different.  That way they have a feel for how the day is gonna go, even though there are things that aren't traditional. 
  • Sorry, guys.  I went to work...I know it's crummy to have cut out of the discussion while people are still active on the thread. No, I haven't been recruited or anything...probably for the reasons mentioned.  I've posted comparatively few times on c…
  • Sure, but because no one knows who to go to with a problem, TK gods are still going to be paged all the time. When there were public mods everyone knew who to PM or page about an issue. Now that the mods are secret, it will just double the amount of…
  • SilverSarahB said: vk2204 said: It is a big freaking deal! Everything was going good a few months ago, and then they decided to re-vamp a bunch of stuff and shit hit the fan. The TK Gods took away mods for whatever reason; and then they secretly a…
  • Why is it "bribing" instead of "rewarding"?  What specifically makes the difference for everyone in this respect?  Why is this shady?  To me, it seems natural to reward people for doing something to help you.  The Knot may not be ready/able to give …
  • Am I the only person that really just doesn't see how this is a big deal?   I know of forums where anyone can send a "Mod Report" which basically sets up an item in the Moderation Queue for the Powerful Few to make rulings on. (For example, i'd put…
  • Cosmo magazine just had a great article about modern marriage and some of the benefits of waiting until you're a little older. For instance, I think one of the stats was that women who marry in their late 20's/early 30's will make an average of $18,…
  • Not a choice that I'd make, but there's no benefit saying rude things about it either.  She made a choice that worked for her at her ceremony, and I'm okay with that. 
  • I appreciate everyone linking to their dresses.  I have bought the dress now:  after hours of searching I found a "Junior Bridesmaids" dress that was made small enough for my flower girl, in the right color, with a similar shape/design.  I can check…
  • I wish I had more sewing experience.  I can sew elastics on to ballet shoes, but not make a dress. I bought my Bridesmaids dresses through an Etsy store, but got freaked out when they sent me a dress the wrong side and is making it a struggle sort…
  • I am not changing my name and I am fiercely protecting my name.  Anytime someone assumes that I will take his name, I immediately correct them with "Actually, I'm keeping my own name, so I'll keep being FirstName LastName."   I've always been my nam…
  • I love Buca Di Beppo, although I've never eaten at one in the Orlando area, it is a popular restaurant where I grew up and my father had his wedding dinner there (17-20).  It's delicious.  You can call and ask for a semi-separate room for your party…
  • I hear you!  I got a promotion at work just as I turned the corner into serious wedding planning and I wish I could go back to myself a year ago and say "treasure the moments where this is all you have to worry about!  Breathe!"   There's a new leve…
  • Talk through your feelings with your now husband/wife.   It's okay to have these feelings, but you can talk through them with your new partner and come to terms with them! We all have choices we regret, talk to them and let them help you through.  I…
  • Many families see weddings as a family occasion and prefer to attend with their children--this opinion is not bad in itself.  However, if you have kindly but firmly expressed that you cannot accommodate children then they can be expected to behave l…
  • They are beautiful!  So wonderful!  what  a sweet almost-husband.  I am still looking for my own jewelry, mostly a particular kind of hair jewelry I can't seem to find one that I like.  I'm still looking.

  • I think that this idea of "find yourself, then find your perfect someone" is misleading logic.  Not that it doesn't feel true at the time, but it treats marriage as an end.  You find yourself, find them, happily-every-after-the-end...and skips over …
  • We thought about Hawaii,  but being in Florida, the long flights to get there deterred us.  We ended up deciding on a Cruise leaving the 14th, and we'll be gone for the week.  I can't wait to relax, and recoup with some luxury!   Plus, minimal trave…
