  • I know that you can rent a lot of green space and various facilities at Covington parks for only $50.  My fiance and I had looked into it for our wedding.  We had even considered renting the bandstand at Devou Park.  We had also considered George Ro…
  • I'm a DIY bride also and my top contender was Pattison Park but once I drove up to view it, I realized that the drive would be too much for my family and friends.  It's a beautiful spot but is not easily accessible.  My main concern was being able t…
  • This is exactly why we're going with our macbook and ipod connected to the venue's existing sound system instead of a DJ!
  • @lsvensson - Stay strong (haha)!  I am also getting weird/negative reactions from my family and friends.  My mother scolded me for it and my sisters told me they thought it was weird and that I should take his name.  (But that's coming from a mother…
  • redheadfsu - He is acting like a sore loser (not mean at all)!  He is a very compassionate and understanding person which is why his reaction has caught me totally off guard.  He can be a bit hot tempered at times but that's usually regarding very i…
  • May 28!
  • Christian (non-denominational) ceremony in a beautiful, old Catholic church that no longer holds Catholic mass.
  • I think that's a great idea!  We're nixing the groom's cake as well and doing pies because FI LOVES pie.  We're also having fudge, a chocolate doughnut tower, and a candy bar.  We love sweets!
  • Don't include it on the invite.  Set up a wedding website where that information can be housed.  Send out STDs and include the wedding website on there.  Not everyone will look at the website but a few will and the "formal attire" mention will sprea…
  • Have you looked into any of the Covington parks?  You said you checked Devou Park but I'm assuming you mean the Drees Pavilion and not the actual spaces that are managed by the city.  You can actually rent the bandshell at Devou Park for only $50.  …
  • I have some!  8 of these guys -- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CDV9J0 And two packs of these (8 in total but they are for smaller containers) -- http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=z…
  • Congrats on your engagement and welcome to the board!  It sounds like you've already done a good amount of research on venues. Ditto PP.  I think a $6000 budget for 150 guests is doable but it's going to be really tight and probably won't work gi…
  • @ doxiehoff  -- We brought our own officiant to the church but I am sure that there are ordained ministers within the Vineyard Central community that would be happy to marry you.  I think they would each have their own policy on whether premarital c…
  • I love the blue, black, and white color combo!  Very classy. And I don't think you need to add anything to the flowers unless you just want to throw a little greenery in there.  I'm doing all white peonies for my bouquet and my centerpiece arrange…
  • @ julialynnjones -- I would have hired a DOC if I had known better just to handle all of the transitions and to keep everyone on track.  I created a timeline that listed when all of the major events should happen (wedding party re-entry, when vendor…
  • OP, you've checked out all the places I looked into before I settled on a venue!  We were also on a similar budget with the same # of guests.  We're having our ceremony and reception at St Elizabeth's Cathedral in Norwood.  It's an old Catholic cath…
  • I bought mine at LinenTablecloth as well.  They have a huge Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale so I got all mine for 50% but of course that won't be happening again until after Thanksgiving. If you have a Twitter account then follow LinenTablecloth…

  • I personally have never really liked the wedding stamps they come up with.  They are pretty traditional looking but I guess that's just not my style.  I used the purple pansies in a basket for my invites even though they didn't match my invitations …
  • Did anyone see the highlight video he posted from the last wedding he did?  This is what I want a videographer for: http://www.jeffcooneyweddings.com/index2.php#/vgallery/1/ I agree that you could just set up a camera on a tripod or that a family m…
