Wedding Night Lingerie: Is it worth it?
Deidra in Wedding Attire, on July 24, 2021 at 4:28 AM

I am unsure what forum to put this in or if it's even an appropriate thing to ask here, but I feel slightly less awkward asking strangers behind a keyboard than asking my mother at all, so just...

Deidra in Wedding Ceremony, on July 21, 2021 at 10:14 PM

I wanted to know some tips to doing a Mission Impossible themed ring bearer entrance. Two boys, one is 2, the other is 5. I like the whole idea of giving them a chance to get their wiggles out before...

How much tea/water?
Deidra in Wedding Reception, on July 18, 2021 at 1:17 PM

Long story short, I'm having a dry wedding. Mostly because we won't be able to afford all the alcohol & because the vast majority of the guests are not drinkers anyways. So we're doing water &...

Deidra in Planning, on July 16, 2021 at 6:25 AM

Bridesmaid gifts, I have ideas. But the groomsmen? Nada. & future hubby isn't good with gifts, which means I should probably help. We did get these nice leather toiletry bags made, but we're...

Job Interviews & The Wedding
Deidra in Community Conversations, on July 7, 2021 at 4:14 PM

I landed a job interview for tomorrow. At what point do I say "By the way, in order for this to work for me, I need a week off in September"? I'm concerned if I'm upfront, they won't hire me. But if I...

Since mom & dad have been putting items in my Hope Chest the past few years, I don't *really* need much gift wise. So instead of a bridal shower, I wanted to host a Farewell Brunch the day after...

I know this is probably a "good problem" to have, but my in-laws to be keep paying for things. They've done catering, the cake, my dress, linens - it's just a lot. Not to mention the odds & ends...

First Dance Songs
Deidra in Wedding Reception, on January 7, 2021 at 3:24 PM

My fiance & I both have two left feet & little to no sense of rhythm. Any recommendations for a slow, but not super long first dance song?

Plus Ones

What is the deal with +1s? I'm sure it's NICE to give them, but is it rude to not give them?

Wedding Bands
Deidra in Wedding Ceremony, on November 30, 2020 at 9:37 AM

Isn't it usually at the ceremony that the bands are put on? What if you only have your engagement ring & no wedding bands at the time?

Wedding Favors
Deidra in Etiquette and Advice, on November 6, 2020 at 12:43 PM

My budget is getting tight. With everyone's Save the Date, I'm giving them a magnet with our picture & our date. Beyond small bags of candy, isn't that a wedding favor enough?

My DJ's uplighting fee is $500. My venue is tiny & my guest list is only 50 people. I hesitate to pay that much, but know you get what you pay for. Has anyone done any DIY uplighting with...
