I'm looking into teeth whitening and coming across a lot of options and am a little lost. What method are you using and how far in advance are you starting?

What do you think? Any of you familiar with the ins and outs of gopro cameras? I know it won't be professional quality by any means, but I think it could be fun. Thinking of using the gopro hero 4...

Karen in Wedding Attire, on April 8, 2016 at 9:14 AM

There's a lot of talk about putting together day of kits for the bride and bridesmaids and even welcome kits for guests, but not so much for the groom or groomsmen it seems. I mean, they're...

Changing Your Name?
Karen in Etiquette and Advice, on March 9, 2016 at 2:03 PM

I'm going back and forth on whether or not to change my last name to FH's. I never thought about weddings at all when I was a little girl, but I ALWAYS felt weird that when I was older, I might lose...

Karen in Wedding Attire, on March 24, 2016 at 11:00 AM

Hey you brides with fall or winter weddings! What did / will you use to keep warm? I'm leaning heavily towards a cardigan of some sort. I just love the pop of color and the more casual feel it can...
