Lantern Centerpieces
Caytlyn in Style and Décor, Yesterday at 5:37 PM

I know I’m 10000% overthinking this. We are doing lantern centerpieces with a few votive candles similar to the photo below. We bought real votives, but I’m really paranoid about using real pillar...

Officially in the doubt digits and a little diy
Caytlyn in Planning, on August 15, 2019 at 3:44 PM

We’re 99 days out today and I’m stuck in a lull. I feel like everything that can be completed at this point, is. The rest of it can’t be done until closer to the wedding. I know that there’s nothing I...

Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on August 14, 2019 at 2:48 PM

So my dress is set to arrive in September for my November wedding. Obviously that’s already cutting it close for alterations so I don’t want to wait until it arrives to make appointments. Did anyone...

Ring Resizing
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on August 8, 2019 at 6:21 PM

My engagement ring fits fine 9 months out of the year, but is super tight when my fingers swell in the summer. I tried my engagement ring on with my wedding band the other day. I had been inside in...

Photographers and videographers
Caytlyn in Planning, on June 21, 2019 at 3:19 PM

For those who already got married, did you feel like you had an entire paparazzi following you the whole day? More specifically, the ceremony? We have two photographers and two videographers and I'm...

Special moment with mom on wedding day
Caytlyn in Wedding Reception, on July 5, 2019 at 4:10 PM

Has anyone found a way to have a special moment with their mom during their wedding? My stepdad didn't enter our lives until I was 19, so it was just her the entire time I was growing up. My stepdad...

Engagement photo sneak peak
Caytlyn in Parties and Events, on June 3, 2019 at 1:37 PM

We did our engagement pictures last weekend and got a preview today! We were disappointed because our original location was supposed to be a park with woods, a huge field, and a barn, but Mother...

Cathedral veil with lace
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on June 18, 2019 at 10:13 AM

I know this is oddly specific and I’m really overthinking it, but I can’t stop obsessing over it. For those who wore/are wearing a lace trimmed cathedral veil, did you go with lace just around the...

Caytlyn in Hair and Makeup, on May 23, 2019 at 3:17 PM

So our engagement photos are this Sunday and it's supposed to be 90 degrees. I had planned to just wear my hair down with some romantic curls, but I don't think they (or I) will survive the heat. Did...

Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on May 7, 2019 at 10:03 AM

I know "getting ready" photos are overdone and they don't really matter and blah blah blah, but I like them. Has anyone else had a mixed gender bridal party and did you do getting ready photos? I'll...

When to call it quits with your photographer
Caytlyn in Planning, on April 6, 2019 at 6:04 PM

This is one of those posts where I know the right thing to do, I just want confirmation that I'm not being dramatic. We found our photographer via another bride's BAM here on WW. The photos were...

Said yes to the dress! Should i add sleeves?
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on April 2, 2019 at 11:22 AM

I went into dress shopping 10000% positive that I wanted illusion sleeves with lace appliqués. Well...I fell in love with a dress without sleeves! What do you guys think about adding them? Would it...

Just dropped our save the date magnets off at the post office. Super exciting! We’re almost exactly 8 months out. Is anyone else having major “omg this is real” moments this week?
