Lauren in Etiquette and Advice, on October 17, 2019 at 3:31 PM

I’m having a hard time finding greenery for my tables. I want the runner/garland look but it’s pretty pricey. My tables aren’t standard banquet tables, they’re restaurant tables so there’s not a lot...

Lauren in Parties and Events, on July 24, 2018 at 4:19 PM

So 90% of our guests will be from OOT, and while I don't want to have a full on rehearsal dinner w/all of them, my parents want most to be there since it's family and they've graciously offered to...

Getting ready room
Lauren in Hair and Makeup, on July 6, 2018 at 10:16 AM

Fake Flowers/centerpieces
Lauren in Style and Décor, on June 22, 2018 at 11:44 AM

So I'm not big on spending a lot on flowers because it's just not worth it to me since our wedding is so small. I'm buying fake bouquets so I'm thinking of after the ceremony using them, plus maybe...

How did you choose your photographer when it was time? I've narrowed it down to 2 whose work is amazing. I've talked to the one for a while because I thought I'd book her when we were getting married...
