Thank you note message
Martha in Etiquette and Advice, on September 19, 2019 at 4:17 PM

We want to send our thank you cards out soon. I will write them all by hand. Is it alright if I write the same message to almost each person? Pretty much all our gifts were money. Thanks in advance!

Uncomfortable dress
Martha in Wedding Attire, on August 30, 2019 at 8:34 AM

So I had my final fitting. My mom and the seamstress said there is enough room in the dress. Sometimes I have trouble expanding my lungs all the way, but the seamstress said the boning is just...

Hate my hair
Martha in Hair and Makeup, on September 12, 2019 at 6:14 PM

Already had my wedding and waiting on pro pics. We went to a salon and we all hated our hair, and tried to fix it when we got back. I have short hair and asked for loose waves - instead I got flat...

Rsvp disappointment
Martha in Wedding Reception, on August 19, 2019 at 10:10 AM

I know this has been discussed, but anyone else a little disappointed in their final numbers? Our wedding is on a Saturday and not during Labor Day weekend, so I was hoping most everyone could make...

Calling people day of rsvp due date
Martha in Planning, on August 9, 2019 at 1:29 PM

We will be meeting with our venue Tuesday, and our due date for rsvps is Monday. Is it appropriate to call on Monday if we didn’t get their rsvp? Maybe some people sent it the day of and we wouldn’t...

Paying for alcohol for teenagers
Martha in Wedding Reception, on August 5, 2019 at 5:02 PM

We are having an open bar and my parents’ friends are coming, and so are some of their kids. I am not sure their ages, but my mom said it doesn’t matter, because I will have to pay for them anyways...

Covering up in church
Martha in Wedding Attire, on June 30, 2019 at 8:06 AM

I am getting married in a church and it’s preferred I have my shoulders covered. I really don’t want a veil, I feel it takes away from the dress. I have been trying to look at some cover ups/wraps but...

Stamps
Martha in Planning, on June 5, 2019 at 4:34 PM

Am I the only one who used the American flag stamp? I bought them the last day before the prices went up. I am also handwriting the the addresses on the envelopes. Just wondering if I am the only one...

Minted all in one?
Martha in Planning, on May 26, 2019 at 2:33 PM

Just want to hear opinions on these if you’ve used them. I have seen mixed reviews on the envelopes staying closed. Did the stickers that they came with work? Did guests like these? Also, did you...

Martha in Etiquette and Advice, on May 17, 2019 at 9:17 AM

Ok there are two parts to this. A small part of our team is in the office that I am at, but there is one guy that I don’t work with at all really, and he doesn’t come to the office much. I see him...

Waxing?
Martha in Hair and Makeup, on May 9, 2019 at 5:16 PM

I am wearing a strapless dress. I have never waxed my armpits and I was told that for the wedding, you should do it a couple times before the actual day. Is it better to just keep shaving or to wax? I...

Food tasting
Martha in Planning, on February 25, 2019 at 12:21 PM

How did your food tasting go and is it common to do it with random couples? Our venue is pretty expensive and we scheduled our food tasting next month, and we might be paired with 2 other couples if...

Really want to cancel the wedding - rant
Martha in Planning, on March 28, 2019 at 11:36 PM

I just don’t want to have a wedding. It’s too much pressure and I hate being the center of attention. The closer I get, the less I want a wedding, and I don’t think my feelings will change much. We...

Not wearing a veil?
Martha in Wedding Attire, on March 1, 2019 at 9:57 AM

Any brides not wear a veil and regret it? I am really leaning towards NOT wearing one, I feel like it doesn’t go with my dress and my hair (a little past my collar bone). But it is very “bridal” and I...

Potential vendor responses
Martha in Planning, on February 7, 2019 at 11:29 AM

I will start off by saying that if a vendor doesn’t respond to me within a couple business days, I move on and do not follow up. That says a lot to me about how they manage their business. Does anyone...

Martha in Planning, on January 31, 2019 at 11:26 AM

My venue let’s us stay until 12:45 and I was not planning to have an “end” or a send off, just have people leave until there’s just a few of us left at 1 am lol.. but as I am reading here, it looks...

Flowers after wedding
Martha in Wedding Reception, on January 25, 2019 at 12:28 PM

What did you do with your flowers when the reception is done? Did guests take the flowers and vases home, and how did you notify them that they could? Did you have to pack them up and bring them home?...
