I know my state forum page isn't very active, but know there are a few of us out there. So, where are you from? Be as specific or as broad as you would like. Make a friend! Get to know everyone! I see...

Weather Schmeather
Mandy in Wedding Ceremony, on May 14, 2019 at 9:50 AM

90% chance of severe storms this Saturday (wedding day). Also, I'm in tornado alley. Also, there was a severe tornado about 2 weeks ago 4 miles from my venue. It's raining as I type this. I'm trying...

Just Needing to Vent
Mandy in Community Conversations, on May 16, 2019 at 9:08 PM

Not looking for pity, just need to get this out. This week has been hell to me. My wedding is Saturday. There's been a 90% chance of severe storms all week on the day of my wedding. I've already had 5...

rsvp - yep, another complaint
Mandy in Community Conversations, on April 16, 2019 at 11:22 AM

I know there are a ton. This is my current feeling perfectly though. Due date was yesterday. I've heard from about 1/3 of the guests. I'm giving it to the end of the week to get any that were mailed...

Mandy in Etiquette and Advice, on May 7, 2019 at 9:45 AM

The venue owner and my photographer have both scheduled meetings with me for this week. (11 days until the wedding) I've asked what we'll be discussing and what I need to bring with me and neither...

Table Entertainment
Mandy in Wedding Reception, on May 1, 2019 at 4:35 PM

We're having a pretty casual wedding. I'm looking for ideas to entertain guests while we take pictures. I thought about putting table "games" out. Something like just general questionnaires or...

Recessional Song Help
Mandy in Wedding Ceremony, on January 6, 2019 at 11:36 AM

Our theme is rustic/country/chic somewhat. It will be all country music during the ceremony but I am having a hard time coming up with a recession song. I'm looking for something fairly upbeat. I've...

Thank You Note Question
Mandy in Etiquette and Advice, on April 25, 2019 at 2:22 PM

I just had a surprise wedding shower at work! Yay! A few of the people went together on a few of the gifts - so, do I write each person a thank you note or do I give them one to "share"? I'm guessing...

Bridal Shower - Yay?
Mandy in Parties and Events, on April 22, 2019 at 1:13 PM

So, my bridal shower was over the weekend. I invited ****people from basically my hometown (family, friends, family friends). 4 people came. I was totally bummed to be honest - and a little...

Spray Tan Funny
Mandy in Community Conversations, on April 18, 2019 at 9:37 AM

Get a spray tan they said. It will be fun they said. Well, sit back, grab a drink and let me tell you a little story to lighten your day. It's long - go pee now. I've never had a spray tan. I found a...

Wedding Funnies
Mandy in Community Conversations, on April 16, 2019 at 5:26 PM

We all need a good laugh, right? If you're married, what's something unexpected that happened? If you're not married yet, do you expect something to go "wrong"? I think one of my nephews/ring bearer...

Only 39 more days
Mandy in Community Conversations, on April 8, 2019 at 5:12 PM

I'm starting to feel overwhelmed for sure at this point. Every weekend is booked up until the wedding and I feel like I still have a ton to get done (I really probably don't, but I feel like it). My...

Bridal Shower Decoration
Mandy in Parties and Events, on March 27, 2019 at 4:50 PM

What was one of the things you wanted at your shower? What was something you wish you had? What is something you could have done without? Two of my three bridesmaids are mainly planning my shower. I...

hmua Trial Opinions
Mandy in Hair and Makeup, on March 26, 2019 at 12:22 PM

I had my hair/makeup trial this past weekend. Looking for suggestions/opinions. To me, the hair wasn't quite what I wanted. It was too big/took up too much of my head and it's a little more messy than...

Rain, Rain, Rain
Mandy in Community Conversations, on March 23, 2019 at 11:20 AM

I have my hair and make up trial today and it's pouring rain. Super. So, how many of you have had rain on your wedding day or are expecting rain?

Mandy in Community Conversations, on March 20, 2019 at 9:24 AM

Another big step happened this morning. I put all my invites in the mail. Now to wait for RSVPs to start coming in. 58 days out. It's starting to get more "real" since one more big thing happened and...

Thank You, Thank You Gifts
Mandy in Community Conversations, on March 5, 2019 at 10:53 AM

How many gifts are you buying? Did you budget in all the gifts? I never realized the bride and groom buy so many gifts for others for their wedding. I've been a bridesmaid a few times and have thrown...

Mandy in Honeymoon, on February 21, 2019 at 10:42 AM

Hey all, I'm not from SC but I'll be honeymooning there in May and since I know nothing about SC I'd love to hear some places we should go or things to do. I've looked around and such, but I don't...
