  • I went to two weddings there this year. I had a chicken dish and my fiancé had the beef. Mine was fine but his both times was not cooked how he wanted it (should have been medium rare ended up well done). This would be fine and good except the secon…
  • @jessica2426 I was wondering where our love was too! I might sound strange but I'm pretty relaxed right now. However, everyone and their mother is asking how I'm sleeping, if I'm stressed etc. Should I not be sleeping or should I be running around p…
  • Agree with everyone above! SImiliar story, except it's FI parents who went off the registry and bought a WHOLE PAN SET. Why you ask, because the one's we registered for are too expensive. Ok then choose something else, or nothing at all! We put hi…
  • We aren't doing a receiving line. A. because we have to drive through some traffic to get to the reception. So we want to make sure everyone gets there in time to enjoy everything! B. because I hate the awkwardness of hugging and shaking hands and t…
  • Thanks everyone for the great feedback. FI and I discussed it some more and thankfully he's making the call and we aren't going to give into the plus one. Knock on wood this is our only one!
  • Lindsay Vigue Photography is great and is actually about $2000. She gives you the rights to your photographs and will then help you create your prints/albums or you can do it yourself. On facebook she is Lindsay Vigue Photography and here's her webs…
  • Glad I'm not the only one @Pepperally‌
  • Is it strange that we're not doing a cake topper? I'm very much a minimalist and were doing a small bunch of flowers sitting on the tiers of the cakes, but that's it. Fiancé had no feelings on a cake topper as long as the cake had a cannoli filling!
  • I like the last two the best. Why not alternate? Love your color scheme by the way!
  • First day of summer vacation meant I was unusually productive! Proofed and ordered invitations! Set up meeting for cake tastings. Set up meeting with church musicians. Called in food and linen choices as well as made final appointments with ve…

  • Ugh where did the last few months go - 4 months to go and I'm calm, but won't be once school lets out! So where am I? To do in June: Invitations - order, finalize addresses, and get them addressed figure out ring bearers outfit find ties &…
  • Thanks ladies for all of your help! I did change it to St. Thomas - it put everything on one line! Made a separate reception card with address. Putting it on the invite was mom's suggestion, so I'm glad I had some back up on it! Marriage it is! …
  • Thank you! Finally someone said it first and it wasn't me! We went to a wedding last week, they were engaged 4 months after us and married 4 months before us. I feel like I had to hold my breath as she walked down the aisle because what if she had m…

  • We are having our wedding in the smaller ballroom in October. Hope, I'm sorry to hear you had that experience, ours has been nothing but wonderful from day one.We looked at it before either room was finished and nothing was paved! We've been working…
  • SAME with invitations! I ordered a bunch of samples but finding anything I like still. I want something simple and not too modern. I found another site the other day www.theamericanwedding.com. They have some invites that are different that the stan…
  • I'm using Stop & Shop in West Hartford (the one on N. Main Street). They will deliver (use a courier). For 4 BMs, 7 groom(smen) corsages, 4 mom/grandmoms, and 42 single stem blooms (mums), it's about $600. Her name is Jen and does beauitful work…
  • I was having the same problem! I wanted vibrant fall colors and a purple (deep burgundy to plum) bm dresses. I had googled the colors together and loved how they looked but was worried it would come across cartoonish, or I wouldn't make the right de…
  • Thanks everyone for your input. I agree, I'd rather spend less on invites and out the rest somewhere else! @charlotteettier we're did you end up getting yours? Weddingpaperdivas? Did you have the smaller cards too (direction cards?)
  • I'm glad someone else asked this question! @lac1252 who did you use and did they make an edited video? @ohashes11 by raw footage is this completely unedited? Thanks everyone for your input!
  • Hi there! I'm an Aria bride getting married in October! I absolutely fell in love with the place even before it was opened! I do know that before the small room was finished, they had a bunch of weddings in the big ballroom. One bride was supposed t…
  • Lindsay Vigue!!! She's amazing, makes you feel at ease and as if you have known her forever. Here's a link to my e-pictures http://lindsayviguephotography.zenfolio.com/p566676580. It was raining that day, but it was hard to tell. All in all she's co…
  • 10/10 as well! Glad to see some others joining me finally!
  • Kurt from CT DJ. He's awesome, we didn't look at anyone else. He's done my sister and uncles weddings and from the other weddings we've been to (soooo many in the past few years!) he beats them all! Here's his website: http://www.ctdjkurt.com/

  • Thanks ladies for your help! I started checking out prices by me and they totally blew me away. $1000 for videography...sure! $2500, well now we're talking about cutting something else. So the videography and photo booth (an other we're not sure) …
  • Thanks ladies I appreciate your opinions!
  • Man @des9724 I feel so behind. I teach too but this summer I feel like I did less than I did while teaching! We have venue, church, priest, dress, photographer, engagement pictures, DJ done. We will have our baker done this weekend as well. Started …
  • Definitely in the boat - all those vendors I still need! I just keep dragging my heels, some because I just don't know, some because "eh, I have time" others I just don't want to deal with!
  • K and I went to a wedding not too long ago and we each had a menu. They also include the thanks to the parents and family, their favor (donation) and some other stuff (can't remember what, wish I had saved it!)
  • I'm having the same problem! Like @des9724 I'm very visual and so I'm probably going to "borrow" your idea and bring some fake flowers with me when we shop for bridesmaids dresses. I'm thinking a burgundy color dress, with deep red, deep orange, a…
  • We hired Lindsay Vigue out of Bristol, I've known her since high school. We just had our engagement photos at Gouveia Vineyard. She's great to work with, very laid back but attentive. http://www.lindsayviguephotography.com/
