a Little Suggestion From a Newlywed
HowCo Industries in Planning, on August 28, 2019 at 12:22 PM

In the next couple months I'm scheduling an appointment to get our portrait done for our Christmas cards. I think sending out holiday cards is a vastly undervalued resource. I had all of the addresses...

How do we feel about picnic tables at the reception?
HowCo Industries in Wedding Reception, on February 13, 2018 at 12:50 PM

I woke up today and, since I haven't yet booked a venue, started to rethink the entire thing. Change it from beach to park, which would save a easy 1k that I could put toward... well, anything. Our...

Wedding Website: who to use if I'm buying a domain?
HowCo Industries in Wedding Attire, on November 5, 2017 at 9:38 PM

I'm looking to buy a domain, to make it easier for guests. I can then have that redirect to a readymade site through The Knot or whatever. Anyone done this? Any advice?

Did you use Minted for your website?
HowCo Industries in Planning, on June 23, 2018 at 12:00 PM

Ok, so according to WWs wonderfully helpfully timeline, we need to get going on a website. I tried WW and hated it. Hated the themes, hated the way registries are integrated, hated everything. (Sorry,...

Finally heard back from venue!
HowCo Industries in Wedding Reception, on June 16, 2018 at 1:42 PM

We found the venue of our dreams last month but haven't heard back from them after a couple of emails. Finally, I called the property manager today and she was so apologetic! She told me that the...

Did you get your dress from someplace non-traditional?
HowCo Industries in Wedding Attire, on June 2, 2018 at 9:38 AM

I got my dress from ModCloth, an online retailer that doesn't specialize in wedding attire. It's the most beautifully made dress I've ever held! The stitching, the weight, the details!Did you get your...

Are you changing your monogram?
HowCo Industries in Etiquette and Advice, on June 2, 2018 at 1:48 PM

So, if you don't know, traditionally children and single young women used only their first initial as a monogram. When a woman married, she then used her maiden initials as her monogram. It's only...

If you get a tee shirt or mug or something personalized during your engagement (for yourself, not wedding party) what do you prefer it to say? Bride? Fiancee (or Feyoncé)? Miss to Mrs? Something else?...

HowCo Industries in Wedding Attire, on May 30, 2018 at 7:45 PM

My dress is arriving tomorrow! A lovely, informal, white, ankle length dress that I'm sure I've posted enough already. The FH and I were talking about his general wishes about seeing the dress and he...

Veil shopping
HowCo Industries in Wedding Attire, on May 24, 2018 at 1:31 PM

So, I'm ordering my dress from ModCloth! Very exciting! Now I need shoes and a veil. How should I shop for a veil? I'd like to try a few different styles on, preferably with the dress. Does anyone...

Visited *the* Venue
HowCo Industries in Wedding Reception, on May 22, 2018 at 4:40 PM

We just got back and it was amazing! The venue itself was a medium sized room with double doors opening to a patio under a pergola. (Obviously we'll need a slush fund for a tent in case of inclement...

Magnets or postcards for Stds?
HowCo Industries in Etiquette and Advice, on May 18, 2018 at 8:11 AM

So, I'm using every opportunity to get things printed between now and the invitations so that I can know which company and styles I like best. I really want postcard RSVPs, because it saves money on...

How soon is too soon buy a dress?
HowCo Industries in Wedding Attire, on May 8, 2018 at 12:52 PM

First and foremost, it's an informal, off the rack dress that doesn't even have numbered sizes. (Just S, M, L.) I've been watching it and a couple other dresses on ModCloth (an online retailer I...

Engagement Party is Pushed Back
HowCo Industries in Parties and Events, on May 4, 2018 at 7:35 PM

Spoke to my mother today and while we both wanted something outside she doesn't think she'll have the lawn ready before it gets too hot, so we're putting it off until early fall. Why, you may ask,...
