Futuremrst in Wedding Ceremony, on July 19, 2019 at 12:05 PM

We’re two weeks out and I didn’t even think of this until today, but we don’t have a recessional song! We have an acoustic guitarist (friend of FFIL) for while guests are seated and the processional,...

Futuremrst in Wedding Attire, on May 15, 2019 at 10:55 AM

FH’s grandma is upset because she made a card box, bouquets, and boutonnières with yellow flowers & ribbon. The card box also has stuffed doves on it. Yellow isn’t one of our colors and FH and I...

Futuremrst in Wedding Reception, on February 19, 2019 at 3:40 PM

How close to the wedding should I order the seating chart? I’m definitely waiting to order until all rsvp’s come in (due by July 6th), but that leaves a month for guests to change their mind. However,...
