How does a dress get shipped if/when you sell it?
Laura in Wedding Attire, on January 25, 2020 at 3:00 PM

I’m two months post-wedding and my dress is just taking up space. I have no daughters or nieces to potentially pass it down to and have no sentimental attachment to it beyond seeing it in pics. So...

Bam!
Laura in Community Conversations, on November 29, 2019 at 10:52 PM

So after starting out at over 400 days to go, I'm now a few weeks post-wedding. November 9, 2019 was a gorgeous day on Anna Maria Island, FL. Despite a couple hiccups I really couldn't have asked for...

She wore a white dress
Laura in Married Life, on November 10, 2019 at 10:55 AM

My new mother in law wore a white dress (with a pattern of occasional black flowers) to our wedding yesterday. For someone so concerned with etiquette, traditions and being proper, how could she not...

Tell me about your venues!
Laura in Florida Planning, on September 26, 2019 at 11:10 AM

So I’m getting married on the beach. Great, but simple. I love everyone else’s venue pics. Show me yours, or one you’re looking at! The more drool worthy, the better!

Photographers-how many did you talk til you found the one?
Laura in Planning, on October 29, 2019 at 4:12 PM

So how many did you talk to? what were your priorities- long coverage time, quick turnaround, included engagement shoot? Their style, their COST?

now they want to participate?!
Laura in Etiquette and Advice, on October 23, 2019 at 3:45 PM

This is mostly a rant with a side of what do I do. FILs have not said word one about our wedding in the 18 months we’ve been engaged. Suddenly we’re getting requests for my mother’s number so they can...

Casual weddings
Laura in Planning, on October 14, 2019 at 6:17 PM

We’re doing a casual beach wedding because all the formal trimmings just aren’t us. What made you decide on s casual wedding? How will your casual vibe play out in your wedding? Love to hear from my...

Necklace & earrings or just earrings?
Laura in Wedding Attire, on October 5, 2019 at 10:28 AM

So I had made, months ago, a simple pair of earrings and relatively simple necklace to wear with my dress. (It doesn’t have the belt pictured.) But I was up early today and have been watching SYTTD...

Sashes and belts!
Laura in Wedding Attire, on October 2, 2019 at 5:26 PM

Are you wearing a belt or sash? Show it off here! My dress shows on the website with one but isn’t sold with one. I’ve been debating adding one. What do you think?

Food safe paint?
Laura in Do It Yourself, on September 24, 2019 at 10:12 PM

So I ordered a cake topper with Mr & Mrs (NewLastName) in plain wood. It’s nice but it’s sort of hard to see the details in the light wood color. So I thought about painting it white to go with...

Arguing with fs more as wedding approaches?
Laura in Family and Relationships, on September 25, 2019 at 10:21 PM

I’m just about six weeks away from our big day. And it seems like FH & I have been arguing and/or having a tense atmosphere at home regularly lately. And the arguments/disagreements aren’t about...

Thank you card disagreement
Laura in Etiquette and Advice, on September 21, 2019 at 12:42 PM

Today FH and I got our first wedding card (from a couple who declined). It was a lovely card with a typed Christmas card newsletter style in it and a small (but definitely better than nothing) check....

Matching/coordinating outfits for the moms
Laura in Etiquette and Advice, on September 21, 2019 at 3:38 PM

Is this actually a thing? Yesterday FMIL asked FH to get her my mom’s phone number so they can coordinate (she may have said match, FH wasn’t sure) their outfits. ??? Is this a thing that still...

My officiant forgot about our wedding!
Laura in Planning, on September 19, 2019 at 5:59 PM

Our officiant is a guy I used to work with who’s also a part time pastor. We lost our jobs at the company we both work for in January. So granted, haven’t been in touch since then. But the last time I...

fil paranoia
Laura in Family and Relationships, on September 13, 2019 at 11:17 AM

FH has an appointment near his parents’ place today and as usual will stop by to see them. They said they’d ‘talk about the wedding’ when he’s there. What?! They haven’t asked a single question about...

How to wear rings for ceremony
Laura in Wedding Ceremony, on September 8, 2019 at 9:44 PM

So I have no idea how I’m supposed to wear my ring(s) before/during the ceremony. I have an engagement ring and the set came with two matching bands. Do I wear one band behind my engagement ring and...

Does the mob have to have someone escort her?
Laura in Wedding Ceremony, on September 2, 2019 at 6:10 PM

Title says it all. Another thread got me thinking about this and I realized, there’s no one to escort my mother. I mean, no one. My brother won’t be there, she & my Dad split almost 40 years ago,...

Is it really that bad to skip the seating chart?
Laura in Wedding Reception, on August 20, 2019 at 10:38 AM

Our wedding will be around 30 (including us) and there is seating for over 80 at our venue, minus a cake/gift/card table and a table to set the cooler on for drinks (very casual wedding!). I mean,...

Lawn/outdoor games
Laura in Wedding Reception, on August 12, 2019 at 5:01 PM

My reception is at a pavilion on the beach, so there’s no room for a dj, photo booth, etc. I was thinking some games might be fun but I’m stuck on what. My MOH, can, I think, borrow a cornhole set....

Squinty eyed pictures
Laura in Hair and Makeup, on August 8, 2019 at 8:28 PM

We did our engagement pics over the weekend. While overall I’m happy with them, I noticed my eyes are squinting in many of them. Now it was full sunshine bright as could be out there, but still. Does...
