VENTing about people who don't RSVP
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on April 5, 2017 at 5:25 PM

Is it not the rudest thing when someone goes out of their way to invite you to a special occasion with a pre-stamped envelope that you really just need to mark a check and your name and throw it back?...

Toast faux pas
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on December 29, 2017 at 12:05 PM

I read an etiquette article today just passing the time- not wedding-related, because my wedding already happened (8 months ago today!). I feel like a total rube now because I did ALL 3 of these. My...

Checking on a gift?
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on August 9, 2017 at 9:04 AM

My husband's cousin is getting married next month and we plan to attend. It's a cross country trip for us so I did not attend the bridal shower which was 2+weeks ago. However I did send my MIL a gift...

Meaghan in Married Life, on July 24, 2017 at 12:32 AM

Hi all! It's been a long time since I've posted. (3 months?) I got "wedding"'d out. Anyway- do any other folks or vendors have advice about putting together parent albums? I went through the wedding...

Post-wedding tipping
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on May 11, 2017 at 8:53 AM

My wedding has come and gone and it was a blurry day. I remember highlights and the general flow of the day but I had not one minute to myself or FH until we got on the bus to leave (solo). I'm here...

BAM 4/29!
Meaghan in Community Conversations, on May 2, 2017 at 9:29 PM

My wedding was a blur last Saturday- except for the ceremony. I remember that quite well! The reception is what ran by. I wouldn't say my wedding day was PERFECT but I'd say, the guests wouldn't have...

I wished some time away but here it is
Meaghan in Planning, on April 27, 2017 at 10:47 PM

2 weeks ago I was pulling my hair out, nervous, stressed, broke. I said I couldn't WAIT for this wedding day to come quickly so we could get back to "normal life". But then today, 48 hours before I...

6 more days of this mess
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on April 22, 2017 at 8:48 PM

I should change my name to AngryBride just because my fuse has been short for about a month now. I've had a few panic attacks and private freak out sessions but one week out, I'm ready to strangle my...

Have I been watching too many 90s wedding movies?
Meaghan in Wedding Attire, on April 17, 2017 at 12:49 PM

I am beginning to toy with the idea of changing into a "going away" outfit at the end of the night. We will see everyone the next day at breakfast and are leaving for the honeymoon on Monday so it's...

Wishing I were in better shape -- final fitting
Meaghan in Wedding Attire, on April 13, 2017 at 10:39 PM

I had my final fitting and I feel "meh" about it. I agonized over this dress. Out of the many dresses I tried on (20? 30?), this was 1 of maybe 3 that I really liked. I feel better IN it because it...

Alternative to the bouquet/garter toss idea. What'dya think?
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on April 9, 2017 at 7:11 AM

One of FH's cousins is getting married in September and we plan to attend their wedding. They are traveling to attend ours in 3 weeks (GAH!). My idea was to have FH retrieve my garter (or not?) but...

We are doing a welcome party from 8-10pm the night before the wedding at the hotel where our block is. We are doing a small beer/wine bar for those 2 hours as well as serving a large specialty grooms...

I just want to SCREAM
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on March 31, 2017 at 4:21 PM

The rehearsal dinner BY FAR is the most stressful thing of this whole mess. Who's coming? Who's going? Everyone needing a ride because they're all OOT but will all be flying in last minute. Nothing is...

Anyone else feel like...
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on March 30, 2017 at 1:13 AM

You've taken care of every DETAIL of the wedding except for one thing- which is "myself". I am at my heaviest weight (230) and one would think....I'd lose the weight for my own wedding. I could give...

Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on March 29, 2017 at 1:48 PM

I am planning to have a receiving line directly after our ceremony. Reception and cocktail hour are at a separate venue. Any estimate on the amount of time we might expect with 100 guests? I'm not...

Graciously accepting guests from non-guests?
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on March 18, 2017 at 3:36 PM

In the age of social media, I've kept 98% of wedding talk off FB. If someone wanted to know my wedding date, I've mentioned it (as answers to the question "When's the big day?") but other than that,...

SO f-ing awkward.
Meaghan in Etiquette and Advice, on March 15, 2017 at 3:54 PM

Yet another guest is presuming their child is invited. The first guest casually mentioned it via text I think before invites were even sent and I shut it down pretty quickly saying "while we would...

MOH dress detail
Meaghan in Wedding Attire, on March 5, 2017 at 4:36 PM

My bridesmaids including MOH all bought the same dress seen below in that plum color. I wanted to buy something the MOH could wear that would set her slightly apart as the honor attendant. I thought...
