Laughing fear
Brittany in Wedding Attire, on July 10, 2017 at 12:20 AM

Good God y'all. FH and I have a part in the ceremony where we read the same vows in unison to each other. He was being goofy when we practiced, which caused me to start laughing. Now I'm terrified...

WE checklist
Brittany in Wedding Attire, on July 5, 2017 at 11:23 AM

Today on my WW checklist, it says "assign duties to wedding party" What does this mean exactly? I know this forum is big on "the only job is to buy a dress and show up." So I'm a little confused.

So we are havunv fewer than 30 people attend the wedding and reception. Because of this we opted for a U shaped table. Thought it would feel more intimate or something. Now I'm struggling with where...

Brittany in Wedding Attire, on June 18, 2017 at 11:29 AM

I'm 26 days away from being married and I'm just tired of planning. It seems like there is so much left to do, especially with the wedding being in a different state. Anyone else have this experience...

Grooms cake
Brittany in Wedding Attire, on November 29, 2016 at 5:22 PM

I was raised in an area of the country where grooms cakes are common, but FH was not. I'd like to get him a grooms cake, but we are only having 25-40 guests. Is it too much in addition to our wedding...
