ThatGirl in Community Conversations, on January 3, 2019 at 9:49 AM

3 weeks till my wedding and everything's a disaster
ThatGirl in Community Conversations, on December 29, 2018 at 12:20 PM

I don't know if I've ever been so close to a total meltdown. It's 3 weeks till my big day and 8 days ago my dog ran away from home. He's my baby boy and I am lost. We've been searching 20 hours a day...

ThatGirl in Wedding Reception, on December 19, 2018 at 9:16 PM

So we are having what I consider to be a pretty small wedding, 56 attending total, including FH, myself, and the bridal party. It's exactly the size we wanted and I am really happy about it, but I...

It’s my rsvp day!
ThatGirl in Planning, on December 7, 2018 at 9:06 AM

A semi unusual non-rant rsvp post! It’s my rsvp due date and I have received all but 3 of my rsvps in the mail. But I do have verbal confirmation from those guests, so I consider that 100% success! I...

ThatGirl in Etiquette and Advice, on November 21, 2018 at 8:45 AM

So one of my BM has been really difficult almost the entire planning process. But I love her and I have tried to not dwell on it, because what would that serve? To give some context - I hate the BM...

ThatGirl in Wedding Attire, on November 9, 2018 at 9:21 AM

When did eloping become a small wedding?
ThatGirl in Community Conversations, on November 8, 2018 at 1:01 PM
