  • Thank you all so much for the prayers!  I'm already beginning to feel this board is my "safe place"  :-) Thanks also for the music suggestions.  I like the diverse responses!  I especially like both of amongthelilies' choices.  I don't think I've …
  • I always take my dresses to The Golden Needle in Joliet (south of Chicago).  They do a great job -- you can't even tell the dresses have been altered.  I always have to have mine hemmed and taken in on the top of the bodice, and that's $50... I thin…
  • I've played that twice, and both times, it was at the bachelorette party.  I don't think it's quite appropriate for a shower with the older relatives and such.  Definitely more of a bachelorette party thing.  Everyone seemed to really have fun with …
  • Thanks for your opinions.  You can stop now.  I get the idea.
  • Thanks for the input, everyone -- I will invite them.  It wasn't that I didn't want them there or wasn't grateful about the shower, it was just that moment of shock when I thought "Oh no -- this wasn't part of the plan!"  I guess I should be more fl…
  • In Response to Re: Cash Bar, Dollar Dances - your thoughts: [QUOTE]I can tell you from personal experience that when there's a cash bar, I'm going to drink whatever amount I'm going to drink, whether I have to pay for it or not.  Posted by laurenc…
  • Since you've had the picture for years, the dress probably isn't made anymore   Wedding dress designers usually only keep a style for a few years.  If you got the photo more than, say, three years ago, there's a good chance the dress is no longer in…
  • Maybe you could introduce your parents and grandparents together as groups.  Your brother could escort your mom, but have the DJ announce your brother, mom, and mother's parents all at once, and they walk out together (maybe with your grandparents j…
  • I attended a wedding where they did that.  I think it worked out pretty well.  The best man was actually the one who served as the DJ, but he had a great personality for it, to encourage people to get up and dance.  The only bad thing is that the da…
  • In Response to Re: Problems with BMs and Dresses!: [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Problems with BMs and Dresses! : Do you have a picture of the dress?  It might be a very popular style that you could find if it were to get discontinued.  I just don't t…
  • Thanks again for all the input, everyone!  This is helping me A TON in deciding about my wedding beauty!  In the pictures I have been able to see, you ladies all looked absolutely lovely!  
  • Didn't think of it that way... good point.  And that reminds me, we really need to finalize our guest list!  Haha... I think that's going to be tonight's project 
  • Thanks, ladies! I now have my invitations ordered, too!  They're the kind you print yourself, so I have a while to decide exactly what I want them to say. Glad to know everyone seems to be pretty much on the same track!
  • Thanks for the thoughts, everyone.  I think it will work fine with the number of people at my wedding and the way it will be set up, although I think we will try to get a third person to help, so there won't be a line.  There won't be much of a "coc…
  • Thanks everyone!  I will do that
  • From what I've seen, you definitely don't have to be a virgin to wear a white dress, but people usually do not wear a white dress if it is their second (or third or fourth) marriage... it's usually a first marriage thing.
  • No, not David's Bridal. You have good points on everything, except I'm still worried that the style will be discontinued.  I wish they would just tell you how long a style would be around. I also asked the store what happens if THEY make a mis…
  • I would say just do full names but not their addresses... full names seem more like "I wanted to hand deliver this to you," where an address might make it seem like you just decided to be cheap and skimp out on postage at the last minute.
  • I'll be selling mine after my wedding on August 20, but I only have about 10, of varying heights... I think they range from like 14" to 24."  I ended up buying them at Michael's with a 40% off coupon.  I got the coupon from a friend, but I'm pretty …
  • Thank you for the input and ideas, everyone!  
  • Thanks for your input, everyone!  Your ideas helped us in our conversation about this.  We decided that we will probably just skip having a hymn, but if we DO find one we both really like, we will just have a soloist perform it rather than having ou…
  • IMO, the people you should talk to would be your advisor/counselor, your school registrar office, and whatever person/department said they would accept your appeal (back in 2008).  You might also want to order your transcripts from all your schools …
  • Glad I could help
  • Try calling a main number for that venue instead of the specific person you've been working with -- it might be that your "consultant" is on vacation right now!  But definitely also do your research and make sure you can trust this place.  I've hear…
  • I always respond with something like, "Yeah, I'm looking forward to it too, except money is so tight that we have to have a really small wedding.  It's disappointing because there are so many great people I want to invite, that I have to leave out."…
  • I don't know where you're getting married, but just a thought -- you'll want to make sure this is OK with your ceremony site and officiant.  We are getting married in a Lutheran church and the pastor told us that we are only allowed to play religiou…
  • The cheapest ones I've found were actually made by families who had a lot of children getting married and now rent the covers out to people.  Check with your reception location to see if they know of any individuals in the area who rent out chair co…
  • Our bridal party announcement song is going to be "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars.  I like it because it has a good beat, it's sweet, and although it's a love song, it also applies to all our friends who will be in the wedding -- we love them j…
