  • I had short dresses and it still didn't matter. Literally the only shoes that anyone even remotely noticed were my husbands. He wore his dad's cowboy boots.
  • I've heard of this. Actually it just made sense to me to color coordinate the invitations to our wedding... But that was mostly because I used the invite for inspiration for the rest of the wedding (it was super easy to carry around). I always figur…
  • I would never loan a friend money. Like, any money. Basically, if it's something small, like lunch (you forgot your wallet or whatever), then it's on me don't worry about it. If you decide to pay me back, that's nice, but it will be offered as a gif…
  • Sorry to go back and harp on this but I feel like I was told a year ago here on TK that indicating what you were going to be serving was uncalled for on the invite. Either way I think it's one of those know your crowd things- if you are in a crowd t…
  • Or on a necklace around your neck
  • Just wanted to chime in and add that I don't think it's necessary to say "cake and punch" following if your wedding is at 2pm. While I get that some people have dinner and dancing following an early afternoon wedding, I still think a 2pm wedding wit…
  • 1. Jennifer Lawrence. Because duh. 2. Cam Newton. I jokingly told my dad I wanted to marry him after he caught a touchdown pass from Kodi Burns against Ole Miss in 2010. 3. Jamie Frazer. Who is not a real person, he's the main hunk from th…
  • JediElizabeth said: I am not suggesting a bait and switch, it should be full disclosure that it is a celebration of the baby, but why do you HAVE to call it a shower, I know that most men I know think of a Shower as a girly event with ga…
  • For us, we both had an expectation that any relationship we were in would be "moving towards marriage,"- with the idea of, if we got to a point where that wasnt the case, we were out. After a long term relationship where I felt like I was makin…
  • Just had two pre-teen boys come by. Lots of candy left, so I told them they could have a few. One of the boys was wearing big paw gloves as part of his costume. Somehow, "a few" became a pawful. Whatever. They seemed like decent kids and had some of…
  • WOW. ETA: A family just came by. They brought their cat along. That is a new one for me. I put some dog biscuits in the bottom of the trick or treat basket (I always had a matching outfit with my dog- pumpkin/scarecrow, Elvis/poodle skirt, wiza…
  • I think there's a fine line here as to whether this is "potluck appropriate," but I'm going to go ahead and state my UO and say, it probably is, because it sounds more like the OP wants a family reunion type of "post wedding celebration" than anothe…
  • We went to brunch with my parents and grandparents on Sunday for my birthday because BRUNCH IS THE BEST MEAL EVER. And then I got a Fitbit so now I'm obsessing over that information (apparently my heart rate at home is 70-80 and my heart rate at wor…
  • The other thing about DIY that I had is what the heck do I do with all this nonsense after the wedding? It's kind of silly, but I ended up making my guest room "wedding themed." Hung the wreath above the bed, put the table numbers on the dresser, re…

  • Isn't this exactly the same as a honeyfund? At least this one is more honest about what it is...?

  • I'm pretty neutral about my MIL.    I only see her 1-2 times a year.  When we go to her.  She had never come to us.   I'm one of the few people who can say their MILs have never visited foot in their home.   This has become a running joke with…
  • Is it a registry item? Some registries will actually log the name of the person that bought it (is it Kohls that tried to do the auto "thank you note" thing?) so that's an option.
  • Unfortunately I think I found Angie. If I have, all I have to say is she's wrong about all the honeyfund money going directly to their honeymoon- she forgot to say "'minus the 3% cut the company takes." Knottie#s, I think you are well rid of this de…
  • Can we all just agree that what Bernie Sanders just did was wonderful? "America is sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails!"... Pretty sure Hillary is feeling the Bern!
  • You're going to end up at the emergency room if you are drinking when Bernie mentions the billionaire class
  • My photographer recommended weddingsparklers.com because they have metal stems which don't smoke like the wooden ones you get at the fireworks store.

  • I call MIL and SFIL by their first names when I am talking to them, or when I am talking about them to anyone other than my husband. If I am talking about them to my husband, I call them by Mommy and Hisfirstname. She signs cards/texts to us "Mommy/…
  • Update- went, stayed for a bit, brought a present, went home. Unfortunately a lot of family had to back out last minute due to health issues, so I didn't really get to see them. On the upswing, I think my cousins really appreciated me being there, a…
  • I'm going to be on the sensitive side and say, I'm okay with this. I get that it is cheaper to be cremated, but I also know that people can be super sensitive about their loved one's remains. I don't think this is quite the same as "if we didn't hav…
  • It is at 830 Eastern. I'm going to PM you more info. Edited to add: I really appreciate the perspective and support for this. Because of my job, I felt like I had some talent talking to people on the phone (and the fortitude to have people mad …
  • I've got to to be honest here- I also don't get the canceling because so many people from work didn't RSVP, and that made the presumption "no one would come.".... I'm assuming you invited like, your family and friends too right? Because I didn't eve…
  • You invited these people to your wedding. That shipped has sailed. You have 2 choices: 1. Pair down your wedding so you can afford to have all those people you invited, whatever that means. And don't give us the BS about how you can't afford that.…
  • So there's not an office yet! I'm seriously cold calling from my home phone. I think that's part of people's reticence to volunteer because most of us just have our cells which feel like they should be more "private." But we got a home phone for eme…
  • I remember there was a chick on David Tuterra's wedding show (the one where someone's planning a bizarrely themed wedding and he "classes it up" by spending over a hundred grand and giving them 0 input) that wanted fish for her "under the sea" theme…
  • That's what my husband thought but the first woman I think signed up by accident when she went to some town council meeting thing. It made me really gun shy after that- every time I called someone in an area that didn't readily identify, or if I cal…
