When we started looking at photography, we couldn’t find anything at a decent price that was available on our date due to the holiday weekend. FH and I grudgingly agreed to use a matching service-...

Bridal Showers
Mac2Bee in Parties and Events, on February 12, 2018 at 12:57 PM

First of all, I am an incredibly introverted person. FH is the one that dominates conversations socially and I am just a bit of a wallflower. This idea of being the center of attention makes me...

Invite vs who attends
Mac2Bee in Etiquette and Advice, on November 28, 2017 at 11:09 AM

If an invitation is addresses to "Mr. and Mrs. John Smith" is it appropriate for Mrs. Smith to bring their adult child rather than Mr. Smith? Context: My Aunt, mom's sister, has made it crystal clear...

Train Opinions
Mac2Bee in Wedding Attire, on November 18, 2017 at 8:56 PM

I have been pretty dead set against having a train on my dress. Today, I absolutely fell in love with a dress with a train and knew it was my dress. Is this train too much? Should I look at altering...

I have been to multiple bridal shops and haven't found much up my alley or that flows with the theme of my wedding. There are probably 100 more I can go to in Chicagoland so my options are endless....

Changing Your Name
Mac2Bee in Community Conversations, on September 21, 2017 at 5:39 PM

I am wondering how others determine if they will be changing their name or not. I have established myself within my profession and we know we will not be having children so not changing it wouldn't be...

Mac2Bee in Wedding Attire, on September 28, 2017 at 5:52 PM

I spent 30 years trying to find a stylist that didn't butcher my hair and knew how to keep it from becoming an afro (reference Dad's wedding pictures with huge 13 yr old fro). I finally found my gal...
