  • bridget, some of my girls ordered from RK Bridal's website (others placed the order in the store), and they took about 4 months.
  • Thanks everyone, I'll check out all your suggestions! TerriandJoe, we've been engaged less than a week, so we haven't really started discussing much yet, I'm just trying to get some info together. We just know that we'd like to get married outdoors…
  • I agree with those that say I would simply discuss it with my mother and ask her why she would say something like that.
  • I am doing one as well. I've always wanted to do a boudoir shoot, but always thought they were too expensive. Like em, I got a great deal on a package from Groupon. I've taken some sexy pics for FI before using the timer on my digital camera, so I'm…
  • I truly appreciate everyone's input! So we've eliminated Waterview, because FI does not like the pics of it, particularly the exterior, AT ALL. Although certainly different from the other venues, I thought it was kind of cool looking and unique. B…
  • Thanks for the suggestions ladies, I'll be sure to check them out! And if anyone has any other suggestions, keep 'em coming...
  • How wide is the sash?
  • We need to give the caterers a head count 2 weeks before the wedding, so we made the RSVP date a month before.
  • Your ring is so pretty Paige!!
  • In Response to Re: FMIL POSTS: [QUOTE]In Response to Re: FMIL POSTS : FWIW OP i have a great relationship with my FMIL in law, but i found it really touching to read your post and remember that she was a huge part in shaping FI into the man that i …
  • I don't think that ring shopping equals a proposal within six months. FI and I first started looking at rings about 9 months before he proposed. But my ideas on the timing of his proposal were based on our timeline discussions, not on when we went r…
  • But she refuses to take the entire week before my wedding off work to help me make my centerpieces, favors and pew bows! Doesn't she know her DUTIES??
  • I think it's a great idea to send your mom something nice to lift her spirits. Some PPs suggested flowers, which are always lovely. Or you could send her some chocolate, or a funny card.
  • Awww I just love seeing everyone's furbabies! ImWilber, your cats are beautiful.... This is my little terror, Loki. Loki was a Norse god of mischief and trickery, and the name couldn't be ANY more fitting. For the first few weeks we had him, he l…
  • Aww I used to LOVE Boy Meets World! Like others of you, I still watch the Gilmore Girls re-runs, as well as the old Beverly HIlls, 90210 re-runs
  • As others have said, if money is becoming an issue between your parents, pay for the wedding that you and your FI can afford to host- if your parents want to add more people to the guest list or to add anything else to your wedding, that will be on …
  • Have you guys talked about getting married and/or a timeframe as to when you see yourselves getting married?
  • oh my goodness, what a backstory! Well you'd never be able to guess it by the looks on your faces!
  • like catemeg, I was thinking maybe it's a promise ring. Based on her comments, I don't think they're engaged, especially the part about "that's your son's job not mine." Obviously they would set a date together, but he would need to propose first, h…
  • In Response to Re: So Happy: [QUOTE]In Response to Re: So Happy : Psh, try 8 years ago.  Posted by coastiegrl25[/QUOTE] 13 years ago! Eek! lol
  • Well I knew it was coming at some point because we had talked a lot about getting engaged and had gone shopping for rings together. He had been having a stressful time at work and planned a long weekend getaway for us in mid October- that's when I s…
  • I'd be afraid to walk down the street at night wearing that thing, paranoid someone would want to stab me for it or something.
  • Moto... just wanted to chime in about your cake. I LOVE it! I love the theme, and even more, I LOVE that the outside of the cake is made of marzipan... it's my favorite
  • Elle, I understand how you feel. I just got engaged this past weekend and was a little nervous to tell my mom. She is not really a touchy-feely emotional person, so in general, we don't usually have deep heartfelt conversations. Plus at the beginnin…
  • That definitely sucks, but try not to let it ruin your bachelorette party. Even if your BMs aren't there for the second part of the party, it sounds like a lot more girls were invited, so try to make the best of it and enjoy the company of those who…
  • Like PPs have said, I think you should have the talk with your bf as soon as possible. This is something you want to be on the same page about before you get engaged. It sounds like you two communicate pretty well, so I don't think you'll have a pro…
  • ooh fun thread FI is not much of a mushy romantic, but has always been very loving and affectionate and has always found his own ways to be romantic. Like when the service at one of our favorite restaurants started going downhill and we stopped go…
