  • I have been to Hawaii twice, once for vacation and once for our honeymoon.  We vacationed in August and stayed at the Grand Waileia on Maui. It was over-the-top, and we had such a fabulous time!  We honeymooned in Kauai and stayed at the Grand…
  • Try subleasing something for a few months, most offer the first month free. This will give you time to look for something. Or go look at an apartment complex and get a 1 bedroom for you guys. My advice (because I've been here) is if you move in with…
  • King St. is going to be mainly underage college kids. I would take the advice on Vendue Inn (roof top) they close at I believe 12am though becasue of noise ordience's. Try the RoofTop Bar on top of Grill 225 near the market and also the more "upscal…

  • My FI won't be doing a mother/son dance, but I don't want that to make me feel like I can't have that special moment with my dad. And he agrees. He thinks that if I want to dance with my dad then I and my dad deserve that moment. If that is someth…
  • In Response to Break for Semester?: [QUOTE]I'm considering either taking off the entire semester of my wedding(4.28.12) or just taking 1 or 2 online classes. Thoughts? Posted by marcellah[/QUOTE] I have always placed school as a top priority. F…
  • In Response to Re: I'm onto Step Two!: [QUOTE]Grats on your goal! I'm not a HP fan. My week has been eh so far. FI got sick then gave it to me and DD. I just got it yesterday and have been miserable. DD only has a stuffy nose thankfully. FI is prac…
  • I know this isn't the "correct" thing to do- but I've been to a few e-parties recently that the bride and groom threw for themselves. They are in their late 20's and I don't feel as though it was tacky and neither did their friends. It depends on th…
  • If you don't want kids at your wedding (for whatever reason) get RSVP cards that sound similar to the below: "We have reserved 2 seats in your honor"... etc, etc. That is what I plan on doing. It's not saying no kids, but it implies no kids.
  • If you want an actual diamond then look at Blue Nile, James Allen, or a jewler who can recreate it for a much better price. You will also probably get a better quality diamond, for a better price by cutting out the jewlery store. Thsi is what happen…
  • While in port at Nassau take a taxi and go to Atlantis
  • In Response to Re: Engagement Question: [QUOTE]Thanks palmetto girl. It may not be proper etiquette, but I really want to have one. my FI's parents live 1200 miles away and my mother is not at all able to throw us one. Posted by cristianaf[/QUOTE]…

  • Congratulations!!!!
  • Well, here (esp. since it's a college town) you pay per person in a room. So again, if you guys are just going to pay for your bedroom you need to find people will be ok and aware of this situation beforehand. Not saying it won't work, but room mate…
  • In Response to Really don't know what to do about this.... (Sorry, long!!): [QUOTE]Sorry girls... I'm new to writing on this board.. so I apologize that this is long and hard to follow.. But I really am lost right now in what to do.... :0(  First o…

  • I am stuck on a couple of mine too. Something Blue: the monogram on my garter is blue and my underwear is blue Something New: my veil (as I'm hoping to pass down to my  kids one day and have them use as their something old) Something Borrowed: n…
  • No one is trying to be rude to you. We just don't understand the situation. Why was the wedding changed from October to February? When did this happen? If the park was scheduled for October, why is it now in February?
  • In Response to Re: Open Bar Question: [QUOTE]Think that's what I would do too.  $3 pp/per hour is a bargain! Posted by kimp67[/QUOTE] Well, it's $15.00 per hour/per person... each additional hour is an addition $3.00 per person/per hour.
  • In Response to Re: frustrated!: [QUOTE]I think that he is probably just afraid of getting crap from his mom. I love her, but she can be very overbaring at times. I am totally supportive of his feelings and what not, but I don't know what to do to t…

  • You shouldn't throw yourself an engagement party. You can send out an announcement if you'd like, but unless someone offers to throw the E-Party, then you shouldn't have one. I would just go out to dinner with the two families so they can meet, no…

  • In Response to Help! Thinking about having a destination: [QUOTE]Ok so I have been planning my wedding for sometime now but I never really wanted a big elaborate event and that is just what it has turned into. I seriously just want to go somewhere …
  • I don't think this is something you should run to your FI about, and have him handle for you.It's not his shower, and if you feel uncomfortable with it (and keeping FI's opinions in mind) then just tell her no.  Tell her you appreciate the offer, …
  • You said you'd be making all the food, so it's up to you if you want to prepare for that on the night of your wedding. They are a good thing to do, and esp. nice for the OOT's. If it's going to make more stress in your life than I would skip it. But…
  • If they already know they aren't invited and are still wanting to throw the shower- there is no reason to turn it down. If they don't know they aren't invited then you have 2 options: 1) Politely turn them down- I don't know how to go about this. 2…
