Finally worked up the courage to book a boudoir shoot and it's tomorrow! So nervous, but also so excited. For all of you who have already had a boudoir shoot, please leave me your best advice/tips!

Personalized Bridal TOMS
Amber in Do It Yourself, on January 8, 2020 at 12:11 PM

I knew from the beginning of planning that I didn't want to wear heels for the wedding; I don't wear them often and FH is only a couple of inches taller than me. TOMS are my favorite shoes and I...

The Home Stretch...
Amber in Planning, on February 19, 2020 at 8:49 AM

*Disclaimer: complaining/venting, somewhat graphic* Four days out from the wedding. A week ago we had to uninvite FMIL (details in my last discussion) and I was hoping that would be the last problem...

We're just over halfway through the month of February, but I know we still have a good many brides for this month, especially with leap day right around the corner. Our date is 02/23/2020 so we're...

Uninviting FMIL 10 days before the wedding
Amber in Family and Relationships, on February 13, 2020 at 8:17 AM

So this is a VERY long story, but I'm going to try to keep it as short as possible. A little backstory: FH and his mother have had a rocky relationship for about three years. Ever since her divorce...

Weather Forecast
Amber in Community Conversations, on February 12, 2020 at 10:12 AM

Did anyone else obsessively check the weather forecast before their wedding day? We're 11 days out and I check every single day. As of right now, the temperature is right where I want it to be with a...

Best Waterproof Eye Makeup
Amber in Hair and Makeup, on February 3, 2020 at 9:00 PM

What are the best waterproof liquid eyeliners and waterproof mascaras that you've used? I'm 99% sure I'll be fighting back tears at least half of our wedding day, so I'm willing to buy high-end makeup...

Veil Search
Amber in Wedding Attire, on September 25, 2019 at 10:19 AM

After scouring the internet with something similar to what I think I want for a veil, I'm pretty sure I found exactly the style I'm looking for. However, I refuse to pay $600 just for a veil...

Wedding Dress Cleavage
Amber in Wedding Attire, on February 3, 2020 at 11:44 AM

How much is too much? I'm usually a very modest person in terms of cleavage, but I fell in love with the deep V that my dress has. I'm not looking to add a modesty panel or anything, but wondering if...

Toasting Timeline
Amber in Wedding Reception, on January 22, 2020 at 4:40 PM

What part of the reception timeline do you plan on having toasts/speeches? For past brides, when did you have your toasts and did it work out well? What would you recommend as the maximum time for...

The Night Before The Wedding: Together or Apart?
Amber in Community Conversations, on January 16, 2020 at 2:34 PM

For future (or past!) brides who are already living with their FS or have at the very least spent the night together before, do you plan on sleeping apart the night before the wedding? FH and I have...

Saturday I had my bridal shower! My mom and two older sisters (MOH & MTOH) hosted at my MTOH's house and they did an awesome job with everything. I wish I had taken pictures of all the food! We...

Amber in Community Conversations, on January 13, 2020 at 11:11 AM

With all of our newly engaged brides joining us here on WeddingWire, I thought it would be nice for both new and existing members to share a little bit about themselves and their spouse-to-be! So how...

Amber in Wedding Attire, on December 20, 2019 at 8:07 AM

I've scheduled my first alterations appointment for Monday afternoon. The seamstress already told me to bring all undergarments/shoes/accessories that I plan on wearing with my dress. Any other tips?...
