Wedding guest attire
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on March 3, 2021 at 8:34 AM

My wife is in a wedding next month and I’m curious if others find this dress appropriate for a wedding guest. I think it’s fine, but the boutique keeps advertising it as “perfect for a bridesmaids...

One year later...
Caytlyn in Married Life, on November 23, 2020 at 10:14 AM

Today is our one year anniversary and we’re heading home from our weekend getaway in the mountains. Definitely feeling a little nostalgic looking back on our wedding day. I did realize that I never...

Thanksgiving For Two?
Caytlyn in Parties and Events, on November 25, 2020 at 7:50 AM

Is anyone else celebrating the holiday with just their SO this year? We have family nearby, but I work in healthcare and it’s just not worth the risk of exposing everyone. This will be our first major...

lgbtq couples, anyone else concerned about the validity of your marriage?
Caytlyn in Community Conversations, on October 26, 2020 at 10:04 PM

This isn’t a political post and doesn’t need to turn into one. Just reaching out to fellow LGBTQ couples. Is anyone concerned that marriage equality will be revoked before your wedding? Or if you’re...

Wedding Album - Shutterfly, Mixbook, somewhere else?
Caytlyn in Community Conversations, on April 20, 2020 at 9:01 AM

I'm making my mom a wedding album for Mother's Day and can't decide which website to use. Which services have you had good experiences with? I've heard great things about Artifact Uprising and we plan...

Aaand we’re married!
Caytlyn in Community Conversations, on November 27, 2019 at 4:42 PM

Saturday was easily the best day of our lives and we’re still basking in the newlywed bliss on our way home from our mini-moon. A few things didn’t go as planned, but our day was everything we could...

Cold Weather and Outside Ceremonies
Caytlyn in Wedding Ceremony, on November 4, 2019 at 11:03 AM

Between a recent discussion and my own indecisiveness, I'm curious to get everyone's opinions on outside ceremonies in the cooler months. Tell us what temp you think is the limit and also what area...

Minted All In One Invitations
Caytlyn in Planning, on September 18, 2019 at 8:51 PM

We just dropped our invitations off at the post office and I wanted to share for those who are still shopping around. We went with the all in one invites from Minted and couldn’t be happier! We...

Makeup Inspo
Caytlyn in Hair and Makeup, on October 2, 2019 at 7:04 PM

Show me your makeup inspiration! I have my trial tomorrow and still don’t know what I want. Part of me wants to go full glam because I only get to be a bride once, but the other part of me wants...

Battle of the Shapewear
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on September 13, 2019 at 1:09 PM

I’ve procrastinated shopping for shapewear until today...and my first alterations appointment is Monday. To say it’s been an adventure would be an understatement. I’m honestly surprised no one has...

Slips and petticoats and crinoline, oh my!
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on September 2, 2019 at 9:26 PM

Does anyone care to share photos of their dress with and without a petticoat? My first alterations appointment is coming up and I have no idea if I need one or not. This photo is the sample gown and...

i picked up my dress today!
Caytlyn in Wedding Attire, on August 26, 2019 at 5:22 PM

How is everyone storing their dress? Hanging up? Laying down? I’m worried about the pressure on the straps, although I’m sure it’s been hanging for weeks and it’s been fine. Here’s a picture of my...

Booking a seamstress before dress arrives
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...

Lantern Centerpieces
Caytlyn in Style and Décor, on August 20, 2019 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...

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...

diy Brides
Caytlyn in Do It Yourself, on August 4, 2019 at 2:33 PM

I know there have been a million posts about Charming Charlie going out of business, but I wanted to give a heads up to some of you DIY or crafty brides. I’m planning to make personalized wood hangers...

Reception length
Caytlyn in Wedding Reception, on July 30, 2019 at 3:55 PM

We're 4(ish) months out and still undecided on the length of our reception. For context, our ceremony will begin at 4:30 pm and cocktail hour will be 5-6. Our dinner will be buffet style stations and...

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...
