Anyone have issues with RSVP function on the website? ATTN: WWChristina
Alina in Planning, on May 16, 2012 at 5:09 PM

Sometimes when people go to RSVP, once you put in your name and say submit rsvp, it's not going to the next section where they put in their email for confirmation and stuff. And at that point it's not...

Booking a Block of Rooms - confused about this.
Alina in Planning, on February 2, 2012 at 5:43 PM

Ok so I really don't know what it entails to "book" a block of rooms. How does this work? Do you pay anything? Do your guests get a better deal? How do you know how many rooms to put aside until RSVPs...

Telling someone they're not a Bridesmaid?
Alina in Etiquette and Advice, on June 18, 2012 at 12:53 PM

Would you ever tell someone when they WEREN'T a BM? When I chose my BMs, I decided not to ask one girl because while she was part of our "group" of friends, I wasn't as close to her and hadn't known...

Alina in Etiquette and Advice, on June 3, 2012 at 12:25 AM

I'm wondering if we need to do a "grand entrance" into our reception, where we get introduced and everything. We're planning on arriving during our appy hour and people will be standing and mingling...

Alina in Do It Yourself, on May 25, 2012 at 1:05 PM

I decided that for my guestbook I was going to do large beach rocks that people can write on and then put in clear vases to display. But I don't want them to be glass because I'm afraid of someone...

Table Mock Up - Pics
Alina in Do It Yourself, on May 22, 2012 at 4:15 PM

I did my table mock up today! They're 6'x30" tables. It's an outdoor reception, sort of a vintage theme. I was originally going to do two centerpieces on each table but realized that would be too much...

Alina in Do It Yourself, on May 9, 2012 at 8:45 PM

So I'm DIYing a photobooth and am wondering if it matters what color my backdrop is. Matching my wedding colors isn't important to me. Is there a certain color that's better for photographing? Any...

Bouquet Toss.....ugh dreading it! But need song ideas..
Alina in Etiquette and Advice, on May 1, 2012 at 8:46 PM

I'm dreading the bouquet and garter toss. I just feel like they're kind of awkward and silly. I don't want everyone to see FH with his hands up my skirt. I'm afraid of throwing the bouquet wrong lol....
