  • UPDATE:  She didn't have my $500 deposit marked down, so the damage is only 2474 still totally insane but a little better. I am supposed to talk to her this evening and am asking her where we can cut costs down. i forgot to mention she's making 4 *s…
  • Congrats! I used Geri too... my post is the one below yours on her blog
  • Oh yeah - I also had Pauline press my veil & dress, which added to the cost.
  • For my friends pocket watches would never be used... but it's personal preference. What about a Tshirt from a local pub/bar everyone likes?  A tie to wear the day-of? GIft cert to a golf course if they're golfers?
  • Stitches by Pauline.  She knows her stuff!  google her and you'll get her info.  I paid about 220 BUT I had her change the neckline, add cups, hem the bottom, and add a bustle. Plus my dress had TONS of beading and she had to fix quite a few of them…

  • this year we're buying each other a couch from Arhaus. ah the romance!!!!  our wedding is like 2 weeks prior to xmas though and we decided to opt out of gifts this year since we're getting so many w/ the showers and wedding we feel like we dont need…
  • I am a traditionalist so I used the Mr and Mrs. such-and-such even for my bestest of friends.  If they are unmarried couple I put Mr. John Smith and Mrs. Jane Lastname and put whoever I was closest friends with first. I've never heard of a woman goi…

  • I didn't offer meal choice, so can't help with that.  But we did not invite children, so worded it like this.... ___ Accepts with pleasure ___ Number of Adults attending ___ Declines with regret

  • don't spend $ on building or renting risers. totally not worth it. 
  • premarital counseling is not bad at all and good luck finding a church that doesn't make you do any sort of pre-wedding meetings. They are easy & painless (assuming u don't go Catholic) and basically it is just like having a conversation.  We we…
  • I think having a small wedding & large receptioin is perfectly acceptable!  Sorry your mom is making things difficult for you - I swear, weddings bring out the worst in families sometimes!  too much drama, haven't we all experienced it :)As for …
