Getting your face done at Ulta on the big day? Anyone?
GrayCatVintage in Wedding Attire, on March 25, 2014 at 11:32 AM

Someone in another post mentioned they were going to Ulta on the morning of to get their makeup done. Has anyone done this before? I know they do demonstrations to try and entice you to buy a product,...

Are send and seal invites "too cheap"...ugh
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on June 24, 2015 at 2:01 PM

So I went to Ann's Bridal Bargains, found the perfect design, did all the added text, then realized they were a send and seal. Long story short, mom went ballistic saying they were just soooo cheap (I...

For those of you who are NOT doing rustic/burlap, what are you doing?
GrayCatVintage in Community Conversations, on March 7, 2014 at 12:27 PM

It seems like a lot of brides HATE the rustic/barn/lace/burlap/mason jar thing. This is however very common around where I live because unless you have a wedding at the very high end country clubs,...

I need to make the wedding website myself - where did you do yours?
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on January 11, 2015 at 3:29 PM

I have given up on FH helping with anything regarding the wedding. I am over it. So, I need to get this website up and moving since I need to order STD's soon. All my OOT guests are antsy and are...

I never got to do an official BAM
GrayCatVintage in Married Life, on April 10, 2016 at 2:40 PM

Well poo hit the fan in my family shortly before and then shortly after the wedding so I never got a chance to do an official BAM. Anyway, how are my ladies?!

GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on October 12, 2015 at 11:29 AM

We are getting ready to take off for our mini moon! Here are some sneak peeks! The day was absolutely perfect - 68 degrees, sunny, with no wind in October in Indiana. Everyone said it was the best...

Dress fitting advice - Just order a new one
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on October 18, 2015 at 10:11 AM

I bought my dress off the rack at a boutique to save money. When I bought it, there was some dirt on the dress and the in-house alterations lady *swore* she could get it out "no problem" as it was...

Getting married in 5 days and dress nightmare...
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on October 5, 2015 at 9:28 AM

Long story short, my dress was off the rack, it was huge, and it had to be taken in a ton. What was supposed to be my only and last fitting was Saturday - yea, it was still huge. I had to go back...

Back to staking the weather....
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on October 2, 2015 at 3:13 PM

It is just so up in the air! Right now it says it will be cloudy and 70 - that would be perfect actually! But tomorrow it will probably say it is only going to be 58 and rainy. I feel bad for local...

9 More Days...
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on October 1, 2015 at 2:22 PM

Until the wedding! My mom called last night and decided to "run to the venue" with our DOC while I was at work. This was fine however apparently there was a wedding there last Saturday and the venue...

When to hand off the bouquet?
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 28, 2015 at 10:11 PM

So, I know that once you walk down that aisle the bouquet is given to the MOH to hold - as well as holding the groom's wedding band. For the recessional, do I then take the bouquet back from the MOH...

Received our second wedding gift in the mail - I was stunned
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 22, 2015 at 4:29 PM

I received a card - from grandma - for a VERY large sum of money. She sent it in a cashier's check from the bank. I honestly want to give it back to her - she needs her money - but at the same time...

The final push - 14 days out and sad news.
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 26, 2015 at 3:52 PM

We gave the final count to the caterer, I have been up since 7:00 AM working on decor - complete with cutting wood, sanding, and painting, and I need to make another run to HL. I called the dress shop...

When should I expect the "call"?
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 22, 2015 at 10:52 AM

I know I should have been more "forward" when I asked when my dress would be done but after my seamstress said I was her "next bride" I honestly did not think of putting her on the spot. She has to...

My lost salon appointment and they are doing makeup without a trial...
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 14, 2015 at 12:20 PM

I had my hair trial done really early since I had a day off in June (for an October wedding). When I was there I kept notes on everything and my stylist said she could do my makeup too. Apparently, my...

How to handle this issue...
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 12, 2015 at 9:03 AM

Numbers are due today and just now FH informs me of this issue: We sent an invite to a single male friend who is friends with a large group of FH's buddies. Given that we decided long ago we did not...

Totals due tomorrow and people are being stupid....
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 11, 2015 at 1:43 PM

SO, long story short we had to invite 14 cousins to appease my aunt and uncle. All these cousins are adults and not one of them returned an RSVP. My mom went ballistic and was calling/FB/text you name...

GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 8, 2015 at 1:50 PM

Ok, I know I am a month out but I already started stalking Accuweather for a roundabout temperature for the wedding day. For several days now the site has anticipated it being sunny - but around 60...

How are the October brides?
GrayCatVintage in Etiquette and Advice, on September 1, 2015 at 1:45 PM

After abysmal RSVP returns I did at least get my BM gifts purchased this weekend, we booked a honeymoon last minute, and we have tweaked our ceremony write up. I also finished the arch decor, bought...
