  • I picked my parents to be my son's Godparents. The church gave me a little bit of a hard time... "Hmm, usually the Godparents are someone closer to your age. Don't you have anyone closer to your age?" "No." "OK, then..."  They asked that question a…
  • In Response to Re: Whats on your lenten menu tonight?: [QUOTE]my H, after 36 years, has finally agreed to try shrimp.  ive been telling him how yummy it is, an how healthy it is (pure protein, low fat (although there is high cholesterol)) and he's …
  • In Response to Re: QOTD 7/26: [QUOTE]In Response to Re: QOTD 7/26 : I totally agree with this.  However, DH said that he preferred the white vest/tie.  This was one of like 3 things that he voiced an opinion on, so I gladly said "ok, white it is!"…
  • The bride and groom are joined together in holy matrimony.  So they use "and" instead of "to."  If that makes sense.  You're not getting married to someone.  You're being joined together.
  • My Shower is Sept 5.  Early for Nov 27 wedding, but I need to fly home for it, so we picked Labor Day weekend. We invited 35 people.  My grandma, aunts, cousins, mom, Fi's mom, grandma, aunts were invited, and just a couple of friends.  They rented…
  • Awww! You look so cute! We started going to a different church that is 20 - 30 minutes away.  I feel much better about going to this church then the one that's 5 minutes away.  We are thinking of moving closer to that area anyways.  This church has…
  • Mine took about 2 weeks.  But I had to call the Diocese archives department since the church I was baptised in had closed.  Once I got ahold of the right person at the Diocese, he was able to get it for me right away and had it shipped to the dioces…
  • Rant:  FI has spent the week in and out of the hospital and is having surgery next week.  I have this sick feeling the surgeon's office is trying to screw us over.  They asked for $1200 upfront because he has not met his deductible.  Well, the ER vi…

  • www.afloral.com has beautiful silk flowers and they can be cheap.  I *think* if you friend them on facebook, they have a coupon for like 10% off.
  • I don't see a reason why your FFIL couldn't give a blessing or do some part of the Mass (maybe the Gospel reading for example) if you're priest in Michigan allows it. It is my understanding that a priest has to be there for a Mass.  But I don't see…
  • The ladies at Atlas were rude to me.  They didn't seem like they wanted my business.  I was the only one in the store, but they didn't want to help me. The consultant at David's Bridal was much nicer to me, so I ended up getting my dress there.  No…
  • I took a class that was offered by Couple-to-Couple league. Parishioners at my church were the instructors (they had to go thru training). I thought it was very helpful being able to sit down with someone and have them look at my chart to make sure …
  • I did a unity candle.  Bought it from Hobby Lobby during a 50% off bridal week, and it only cost about ~$13 I think.

  • New Image Photography has a good package at $1,995, and then depending on the time of year for the wedding, you can get discounts (like Nov wedding is 15% off).  They had cheaper packages also.  Plus NI Photo gives you the rights to your images so y…
  • 1) Are these shoes going to be your favors?  Because if so, I'd think that 1 pair per person.  If you only get half, and someone didn't have a pair, they'd probably be upset.  I could see doing them just for the women guests if you wanted to cut cos…
  • Stacy -- She uses facebook on her cellphone.  Her cellphone has a facebook app and she updates her status with that.  Yes, that also means that she can go to m.bing.com on her phone and get directions, and I shouldn't have had to print out a map for…
  • I'm getting mine the Monday before the wedding.  Which freaks me out... But I have to get it in the county in which I am going to be married in, and I won't be in that county until the Sunday night before the wedding.  I have nightmares that the off…
  • Yep.  Honeymoon is in March.  We're going on a cruise to the southern caribbean. I will work on vendor reviews and make sure I post them by this weekend. My hairstylist was my maid of honor's sister.  She works at Polished salon on Laskey Rd.  Sh…
  • I'm not having a FG, but my nephew will be my RB.  I planned to get him a little toy.  Like some hot wheels... at least he liked hot wheels last time I saw him. if I had a FG, I think I'd get a barbie doll or something.
  • My parents had a informal cocktail hour in between the ceremony and reception.  Some went home or went to the hotel to check-in and relax.  They had drinks and appetizers.  We had a 2.5 hour gap. We chose my parents house because they literally liv…
  • Yay!  Hope it goes well! When I told my doctor at my annual exam in Feb that I wanted to TTC, she was more than thrilled.  She gave me a prescription for pre-natals, and told me to take several other over the counter vitamins in addition to the pre…
  • Prayers for you Calypso
  • In Response to Re: Photographer...A MInds Eye Photography: [QUOTE]I strongly suggest not using them.  Last year, we received a $100 coupon off from a bridal affair and met with him.  We just did not feel comfortable in our meeting with him, it seem…
  • Calypso, I might have to do that.  I live 1200 miles away from any family.  And even then, only my mom is practicing Catholic. I think I have some cousins back home who go to Mass, but I barely know them.  As in, I wouldn't recognize them if they hi…
  • I would definitely eat my own dinner before if the invite said cocktail party at 8:30pm.  To me, cocktail party is appetizers, finger foods, light dessert, and drinks. Plus I also eat stupidly early at like 6:30. lol
  • Wow.  My fee was only $75.  And I'm not personally a member of that church; it's my mom's church.  He said he charges $150 for non-members but since my mom is a member and we're both catholic, he "likes to give two catholics kids a break." I don't …
  • I wore a white dress with lots of black flowers printed on it; so it was almost a black dress.  It was my brother and SIL's wedding.  SIL wore a white dress with black lace.  She was not offended. personally, I wouldn't care if someone showed up we…
  • Brieschke's Bakery in Sylvania.  Very small operation, it's a family business.  Right on Main St. $1.85 per slice.  and I LOVE THEIR FLAVORS!

  • When I met with the priest, he gave me a list of 3 organists that the church uses.  He said, "This guy is our normal guy, call him first.  If he can't do it for whatever reason, call these other two people." I think you'd just have to talk to your …
