We live in Grand Rapids MI and I work both selling art/clothes online and as a makeup artist in a photography studio. We’re cat people. I tend to get unintentionally snarky.

Please help my sign be punny :p
Rachel in Do It Yourself, on August 29, 2019 at 10:08 PM

Hey everyone, So I'm doing a celestial wedding and I don't want to be too dorky or cheesy with signage--we aren't doing much of it at all because I'm not a huge fan of signs other than what is...

Good ways to find the perfect wedding-night honeymoon suite?
Rachel in Honeymoon, on August 28, 2019 at 3:59 PM

Hi, I'm not sure about any of the hotels in my area, and we're looking for a suite just for the wedding night. For those of you not doing hotel blocks, destination weddings, etc., what was a good...

Rachel in Etiquette and Advice, on August 24, 2019 at 1:42 PM

RANT WARNING! So I know these topics are dime a dozen around here, but how about a fresh one for this week/today? I am anxiety city over here. I have had ongoing guest list issues with my Drama...

My Latest Celestial Theme diy
Rachel in Do It Yourself, on August 12, 2019 at 1:04 PM

I finally did my card box! There are a few things I could touch up, but that’s me being a perfectionist. 27 days!

One month out--what do you have left to do?
Rachel in Planning, on August 6, 2019 at 2:04 AM

I'm feeling very unorganized. We just moved into our new house (finally!! It was a looooong road) and we're excited about that, but I just feel so far behind now! We are in charge of a lot of DIY,...

We are FINALLY able to get some work done on our DIYs! I know I’ve posted some of these before, but here’s what we have so far, put all together. The last one is the first of several being made by my...

How many thank you cards altogether?
Rachel in Planning, on July 15, 2019 at 4:44 PM

For those of you who are already married, how many thank you cards do you think you ended up needing, what with shower gifts, wedding gifts, and gifts sent by those who could not make one or either...

Remember when you started planning and thought "that won't happen at my wedding"?
Rachel in Family and Relationships, on July 6, 2019 at 2:19 PM

We were so young and innocent! I'll put it this way: When we decided to host a full wedding instead of doing a destination elopement, I thought my family was so chill and that the wedding forum...

Is it weird to have the groom’s bout the same?
Rachel in Do It Yourself, on June 27, 2019 at 1:02 AM

I’m working on my floral right now and just realized that I didn’t plan for the groom’s boutonnière to be any different or bigger than that of the dads and groomsmen. We’re doing minimal floral in a...

Is wearing red to a wedding still a no-no?
Rachel in Wedding Attire, on June 22, 2019 at 6:29 PM

Or is this a completely weird/antiquated thing, or something that my ultra-conservative mom came up with? (IK it’s not but if it hasn’t been a thing since the Victorian era....) My cousin is getting...

i finally got my invites!!!
Rachel in Do It Yourself, on June 19, 2019 at 11:24 PM

I feel like it’s taken forever!! Of course, I was so excited to stuff envelopes that I totally forgot to put names of invitees on my RSVP cards, which I’d planned to do, so now it’s going to be a...

Cake flavor ideas for our (experienced--don't worry) Diy?
Rachel in Wedding Reception, on June 14, 2019 at 1:13 AM

So my mom is doing our cake--don't worry, she DEFFO knows what she's doing and totally offered on her own to do it, knowing fully well that it'll be a stressor the day of the wedding. We have already...

Addressing envelopes: Which address to use? And i might just hand-address....
Rachel in Planning, on June 10, 2019 at 2:50 PM

What do you think? We are supposed to be closing on a house on Friday but my invites need to go out ASAP, like faster than we will probably be in that house unless they unexpectedly and miraculously...

When a 5x7 does not equal a 5x7.......
Rachel in Do It Yourself, on June 3, 2019 at 3:37 PM

You guys. This is so dumb. Can I just complain for a second?? I spent all this time designing 5x7 invitations in Canva, making sure that I was using exactly their 5x7 widget because I didn't...

What skivvies are you wearing the day of?
Rachel in Wedding Attire, on May 30, 2019 at 10:50 PM

Wondering what everyone is planning.... my dress is going to have to be altered to put breast pads in, and I’ll probably just wear a panty under. I’m not sure whether to go for sexy or practical,...
