  • Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOO much for the suggestions, ladies! I think I got a solid idea of the wording I want/need now. Seriously, you're the best.
  • I've decided to do navy blue organza overlays on the tables. The fabric is sheer, and with ivory tablecloths underneath them, I figure it'll equal out to about the right shade. Thank you for the advice!
  • My dress is a ballgown, and the girls will be in floor-length dresses. The only reason I mentioned my FFIL is because he'll most likely be Best Man (since my fiancee is very close to his father). My fiancee is old-fashioned and easy to please. As lo…
  • I also will be using Azazie for my BMs since I live in Texas and they all live back in California, it'll be easier to just tell them my colors and let them pick whatever styles they like. :P Plus, my girls are all different shapes and sizes (like hu…
  • I think both the black and the silver go with the dress just fine! But if you want my personal opinion, the silver is nicer and will match the broach on the dress as well as your jewelry.
  • Wow, I had no idea people hated potlucks so much. Any party or gathering I've ever been to has been potluck, and it was never complained about. Most of my family members have even gotten used to asking, "Do you want me to bring anything?", when they…
  • I suppose that's how I'll have to do it. After voicing my concerns to my fiancee, he cheered me up like he always does. He said, "If you really, truly want those people to come, then tell them so. Tell them how much it would mean to you. Give them a…
  • It's interesting that so many of you just used your bouquets! I'd never heard of the idea before. That'll be perfect for me, too. It was too expensive to fill the centerpieces full of flowers, so I planned to fill them with baby's breath and then on…
  • MandyMost said: Does your venue not have any other options for tables? Maybe long tables, for instance? My venue provides (40) 60" round tables, (6) 8' rectangular tables, (2) 6' rectangular tables, (2) 36" round tables, and (6…
  • Thank you for your suggestions, I greatly appreciate them!
  • The dress is gorgeous, but in the end, it comes down to how you feel in it! If you love it, then by all means, keep it. If you're uncomfortable in it, then ditch it and don't give it a second thought. I think the ruching on the bodice is what's maki…
  • I think in this case, you'd just be stooping to her level. I think it would be rather childish to demand that your family not show up to her wedding. I understand your reasons for excluding her from your own wedding, but whatever issues (mental or o…
  • You guys are awesome. Thank you for all the support and suggestions. :P I think I will hire an awesome DJ and a decent bartender. That oughta loosen up the family. And like you all said, even if in the end I am the ONLY one dancing, at least I had …
  • April 6th in Texas! Congrats to all!

  • We used Ral's, it was fannnnnntastic! We had a pasta station and a prime rib cutting station, also fruit, cheese, veggies, etc. They were absolutely wonderful. This place actually looks...phenomenal. Thank you so much for the suggestion! I will se…
  • My budget is $10,000 also, and I was VERY picky when choosing my venue. I looked at every listing on every major website and I turned some down just because the ceilings were too plain! I finally found a winner, though, and I highly suggest you take…
  • Honey, I feel your pain. I was surprisingly hard-pressed to find a gorgeous rustic venue in our $10,000 budget, around the Houston area...But after looking at EVERY listing on EVERY website under the sun, I'll be damned if I didn't find it! Try http…
  • Great story, Shannon! Congrats to you both! Here's mine: My name is Kayla, and my fiancee's name is Kenneth. We met online in 2012, on a video game we both played a lot at the time (Minecraft, of all things!). He asked me to be his girlfriend ab…
