Rosie in Honeymoon, on November 29, 2021 at 4:50 PM

Does the type of shapewear i want even exist?
Rosie in Wedding Attire, on November 9, 2021 at 7:39 PM

So, I have bought a GIANT ballgown, and my main goal is to have the tiniest, most snatched waist possible. I own a corset, and can get down to about a 24.5 inch waist with it on, but it sits too high...

Rosie in Wedding Ceremony, on November 8, 2021 at 6:21 PM

Let's talk about your ideal amount of skin showing?
Rosie in Wedding Attire, on October 11, 2021 at 7:22 PM

I enjoy watching say yes to the dress, and am always interested by how adamant some of the entourage can be about how much skin is appropriate to show. Some of the groups seem super conservative, but...

Timeline with change of season?
Rosie in Planning, on October 4, 2021 at 7:33 PM

Ugh. With our postponement we have had to change our timeline to better fit in with the sunset and 'golden hour'. Originally, our time line worked out perfectly - we had the ceremony, 30 minutes for...

Rosie in Married Life, on September 13, 2021 at 9:48 PM

And if you're married, DID it change? My fiance and I live together. We have joint health insurance and hold joint investments. We are marked down as each other's emergency contacts at work and with...

Veils! When did you lift the blusher on your veil?
Rosie in Wedding Ceremony, on September 8, 2021 at 9:22 PM

So, obviously, this is going to be personal, but I'm still curious to see what other people have done. Not everyone has a veil and those that do don't always have a blusher, but I read a recent...

If you'd been given 6 months extra to plan, how would you have used it and what do you wish you did?
Rosie in Planning, on August 30, 2021 at 7:43 PM

We had to postpone our wedding due to covid, and now have 6 extra months to 'plan' - but since we would only have had 18 days left at this point, everything feels like it's organised and planned. But,...

Dressing for the Season
Rosie in Wedding Attire, on August 23, 2021 at 10:35 PM

So the thing about wedding dresses is, you buy them well in advance of the day so you can't be sure whether the weather will suit what you've bought - and real talk, most of us have an image in our...

Did you consider the season when picking your dress/attire?
Rosie in Wedding Attire, on July 26, 2021 at 8:42 PM
