rsvp Dissapointment
Rachel in Etiquette and Advice, on August 17, 2019 at 9:08 PM

Well. I invited 157. I gave a guess at 130 being yes, with low of 120. I’m sad to say I’ve paid 70% of catering, and my rsvps didn’t even come in to 80. I’m disappointed in my friends. And my family....

Fiancé reacts to everything with that makes me nervous
Rachel in Family and Relationships, on December 30, 2018 at 2:23 AM

Wait, Honeyfund is a bad thing?
Rachel in Registry, on December 15, 2018 at 11:30 PM

Bald brides?
Rachel in Planning, on December 15, 2018 at 10:59 PM

Hello bald brides! Shout out and let me know where you are! I’m undecided if I want to have anything on my head on the big day. I never wear anything on my head so it’s hard to say. I have alopecia...

Rachel in Planning, on December 15, 2018 at 10:49 PM

Hello community! I am trying to pick a venue but am having a heck of a time gathering data because everyone is taking so long to get back to me. Is this normal? I find myself getting agitated at the...
