Invitation—vistaprint vs Minted vs ?
plangalCG in Planning, on February 8, 2018 at 10:21 PM

So, I always said I didn’t care about the invites. That I’d do an online one. And now, I’m thinking so much about which invites to get. Thankfully, though I love letterpress and other fancy...

plangalCG in Do It Yourself, on June 4, 2018 at 3:10 PM

I followed instructions from online on pressing flowers from my bouquet...basically putting in parchment paper and putting under books, and, well...FAIL! Ick! The liquid ran all over the carpet which...

At my first wedding post-marriage...
plangalCG in Married Life, on August 17, 2018 at 9:16 PM

And it’s so funny to see everything in a different way. From “seasoned” eyes. We are actually at the rehearsal/welcome dinner, and it’s endless speeches. I don’t really know the couple so I’m bored....

Four days to go and my first bridal freak out!
plangalCG in Wedding Attire, on May 14, 2018 at 8:59 AM

I had previously posted about how the bra I got at the dress shop was so uncomfortable. Well, I had to go 4 hours away this weekend for my god children’s baptism (great timing, I know!) so I brought...

Post-destination hometown dinner
plangalCG in Parties and Events, on June 17, 2018 at 5:46 PM

I had mentioned a few times on here that my parents were throwing a dinner a month after our wedding to celebrate our marriage with extended family. Well, we had it last night, and it was so fun!...

a registry idea
plangalCG in Registry, on June 14, 2018 at 12:11 AM

I just thought I’d share an idea for a registry item—a digital photo frame! I got one for my husband last Christmas (Nix brand if you’re interested, though there are many) and we love it! I love it...

Post wedding celebration of marriage dinner
plangalCG in Wedding Attire, on June 11, 2018 at 12:34 PM

Hi! My parents are throwing us a dinner to include my extended family and their friends this weekend—our wedding was a small (20 person) destination wedding. I stupidly hadn’t considered what to wear....

What’s your most ridiculous wedding thing?
plangalCG in Planning, on April 25, 2018 at 12:07 AM

So, this weekend, I was doing a wedding project and all of a sudden said “wow, this is sort of hilarious that I’m doing this” so you have anything like that—something that is effort out of proportion...

Non-pro Bam! Best day ever!
plangalCG in Married Life, on May 17, 2018 at 10:58 PM

I had the best most relaxing day and night! It was so fun! I want to do it again! I can’t believe it’s done and I’m married! The rain held out for our ceremony and we got to spend some reception time...

I’m so excited and happy...after two days of feeling stressed and crazy, I am now at my wedding destination and feeling the love. I’m praying for good weather so we can have our outdoor wedding!...

Welcome party and inlaws--help! What would you do?
plangalCG in Parties and Events, on May 11, 2018 at 1:40 PM

We have a small wedding: 19 adults including us. 9 of those adults are us or family. In addition to us and the family, there will be about 6 friends who will be there the evening before. Originally, I...

Picked up my gown. 8 days to go! Omg! And underwear problems.
plangalCG in Wedding Attire, on May 9, 2018 at 12:50 AM

I’m still processing...but the fact that my wedding is only 8 days away is blowing my mind. I am somewhat in denial. I picked up my gown...and love it even if I know I won’t be super comfy. I mean,...

Alterations mostly done!
plangalCG in Wedding Attire, on May 1, 2018 at 9:38 PM

There’s some cleaning up to do and it was taken in a bit too much so she’s going to let it back out so I can breathe, but I’m super happy about how the sleeves turned out, especially the back! It’s...

Finished (i think!) my diy veil and hairpiece!!
plangalCG in Do It Yourself, on May 5, 2018 at 7:35 PM

I think I’m done finally. Both are made from pieces that I took from my mom’s veil and crown thing the veil was attached to. I accented the hairpiece with a rhinestone that matches the belt sewn onto...

White linen suit & ivory dress?
plangalCG in Wedding Attire, on April 30, 2018 at 6:44 PM

My FH just called me from the store and sent me a pic of his white suit. Thing is, my dress is ivory, with a champagne underlay. So now I’m concerned about how they’ll look together. Opinions?...

diy veil: stupid tulle!!!
plangalCG in Do It Yourself, on April 29, 2018 at 5:35 PM

I decided to make my own veil—out of the tulle from my mom’s veil. It was way too 70s to use as it was. Well it is infuriating to cut! I’m trying to get it even and straight but it is nearly...

17 days out and Eek! Just general anxiety! How to stay focused?
plangalCG in Planning, on April 30, 2018 at 10:04 AM

I had a dream last night that I went for my final fitting (which is tomorrow) and they had pretty much restructured the whole thing into something I hated—my first wedding related bad dream! I’m...

Ah, the videography question
plangalCG in Planning, on April 26, 2018 at 8:10 AM

I hadn’t planned on a videographer. Now, 21 days out, I’m thinking I should for the ceremony (if I can find someone). has anyone done ceremony only? If I don’t get videography, will I completely...
