Inexpensive, creative card box ideas?
Kari in Style and Décor, on April 28, 2021 at 8:25 AM

We are not having a registry and know most people will bring cards/cash gifts for us, so we want a vessel to collect them in. I hate the idea of spending money on something we will have no use for...

Farmhouse tables pushed together or separated?
Kari in Wedding Reception, on June 10, 2021 at 10:57 AM

We had another couple drop out so are down to 47 guests, BUT the plus side is we can now use six 8-foot (8 person) farm tables with only one "gap seat" so that works out better for our table setup!...

Slip dress with cups?
Kari in Wedding Attire, on May 20, 2021 at 11:56 AM

Does anyone know if cups can be put into a slip dress and if they actually do anything? Most slip dresses are designed to fit a bit looser, so I'm thinking you have to go completely braless and...

Mismatched Linens
Kari in Style and Décor, on May 19, 2021 at 12:21 PM

I really love the look of mismatched bridesmaids dresses but don't have any bridesmaids, so I was thinking of incorporating various shades of a similar color palette into our table linens. However I'm...
