2 months post-wedding and I'm finally getting around to this - it's probably going to be word and pic heavy, so prepare yourselves. I don't think I'm an expert or anything, so I don't think I'm in any...

Alterations vent
AllieB25 in Wedding Attire, on September 4, 2018 at 9:33 AM

Okay ya'll, I need to vent and get some stuff of my chest. My dress needs a lot of alterations. I am a small person (4'10") and the dress that I bought couldn't be ordered in a 'petite' size....

First family drama of wedding planning
AllieB25 in Family and Relationships, on April 19, 2018 at 4:17 PM

I knew planning was going too smoothly... I'm really torn here, so I want ya'll to tell me what you would do if you were me. My mom doesn't talk to her dad. He lives in Florida and has my entire life...

I want some inspiration! For those of ya'll who have a themed wedding, what was your theme and how did you choose it? If you didn't have a theme, how did you keep your decor consistent and cohesive? I...

What registry items annoy you?
AllieB25 in Registry, on April 10, 2018 at 6:24 PM

Excluding honeyfunds, is there anything that someone could register for that would make you roll your eyes? I'm really curious about what everyone sees as a no-go as far as registries are concerned....

Draped veil?
AllieB25 in Wedding Attire, on March 18, 2018 at 12:44 PM

So I found this veil on Etsy and I'm pretty excited because it feels like it's exactly what I've been looking for, but I feel like I need a second opinion. I've been stuck on a veil forever because my...

Sick of everything being about 'the wedding'...
AllieB25 in Community Conversations, on March 10, 2018 at 7:53 AM

I don't know if this is just me. Is anyone else sick of everything being about the wedding? I feel like once someone knows I'm getting married, suddenly everything I do is connected to our wedding,...

Garden party attire??
AllieB25 in Wedding Attire, on March 9, 2018 at 9:43 AM

So, FH and I are invited to a wedding next month and on the invitation it states 'Garden Party Attire' and I am flummoxed. What does this mean? Neither of us have been to a 'garden party' in our...

Am i overthinking?
AllieB25 in Wedding Reception, on March 2, 2018 at 7:15 AM

I know I probably am. We've had our first dance song picked out for a while (Heavenly Day by Patty Griffin) but this weekend FH and I were listening to music and this song came on and he was like...

Bridals and boudoir
AllieB25 in Community Conversations, on February 18, 2018 at 8:54 AM

How many of the 'extra' photoshoots are you guys doing? My photographer offers both boudoir and bridal portraits for a small extra fee, and I'm wondering if it's worth it. Have you done/are you doing...

What kind of veil?
AllieB25 in Wedding Attire, on February 10, 2018 at 10:07 AM

I'm at a loss as to what kind of veil to wear, if at all. My dress is a little unusual and has these really cool ruffle details on the back that I'm not sure I want to cover up with a veil. Plus, I...

Not invited?
AllieB25 in Etiquette and Advice, on February 9, 2018 at 5:57 PM

Resetting an heirloom stone?
AllieB25 in Wedding Attire, on February 5, 2018 at 3:07 PM

Does anyone have any experience with having a stone reset? My current e-ring has a moissanite stone that I absolutely love, but a few months after we got engaged my mom gifted us with her mother's...

To belt or not to belt...
AllieB25 in Wedding Attire, on January 31, 2018 at 11:24 AM

I'm considering whether or not my dress needs a belt. It comes with a belt of sorts that is the same color and fabric of the skirt, but it's easily detachable. Do ya'll think a different kind of belt...

Birdy Grey?
AllieB25 in Wedding Attire, on January 21, 2018 at 9:07 AM

Has anyone used Birdy Grey for their bridesmaid dresses? They look beautiful on their website, the price is great, but none of their dresses seem to have reviews. Does anyone have any actual...

Locked card box- tacky or practical?
AllieB25 in Wedding Reception, on January 17, 2018 at 8:27 PM

We are thinking about purchasing a card box with a lock on it for our gift table. I'm not super worried about anyone we're inviting taking anything, but I like the idea of a precaution just in case....
