Ring ceremony with engagement ring and wedding band
ZimWifey in Planning, on September 10, 2017 at 1:28 PM

Veil to cover your face? Too old fashioned?
ZimWifey in Etiquette and Advice, on August 30, 2017 at 5:16 PM

Maybe I'm just too young but both my FMIL and my mom were shocked that I wasn't going to cover my face with a two tier veil to walk down the aisle. Honestly I'm not even sure I'm doing a veil at all....

ZimWifey in Planning, on October 26, 2017 at 5:25 PM

I'm so over everything! All I wanna do is take a nap- and avoid all things wedding. I'm excited to be married and celebrate but I don't have one ounce of planning left in me. Any advice for the home...

You're a wedding guest- what's in your cup?
ZimWifey in Planning, on October 13, 2017 at 1:46 PM

We are providing the alcohol to the bartender at our venue. I'm thinking: beer, red wine, rum, whiskey, vodka, soda, juice mixers and water. Should I add white wine for a November wedding? Any other...

How important are wedding shoes?
ZimWifey in Wedding Attire, on September 15, 2017 at 3:47 PM

Ladies, how much thought/money did you put into your shoes? I thought this was such a minor detail, mostly because my dress is floor length and no one will see my shoes (I think). I was honestly going...

ZimWifey in Style and Décor, on September 12, 2017 at 3:15 PM
