Ideas for Getting Ready Appetizers?
Bri in Community Conversations, on September 14, 2018 at 9:43 AM

I was thinking since we'll all be getting ready after lunchtime, (think 2 pm) I might make some appetizers and snacks for us all to eat while getting ready instead of ordering food in. I have a free...

How Short is Too Short?
Bri in Wedding Reception, on September 13, 2018 at 12:54 PM

I know people will get bored if the first dance and Father/Bride Mother/ groom dances are super long but how short is acceptable to ask our DJ to cut them down to? Neither of us wants to be up there...

Bri in Community Conversations, on September 11, 2018 at 7:25 AM

Order of Processional

Bri in Planning, on August 9, 2018 at 11:20 AM

Doing Your Own Makeup?
Bri in Hair and Makeup, on August 12, 2018 at 7:42 AM

Since the prices at the place I'm getting my hair done are way too much for me for makeup, I'm considering doing my own makeup. I prefer a simpler, more natural look anyways. I've seen other places...

Bri in Planning, on July 11, 2018 at 10:38 AM
