Who pays the bills?
Lynnie, on October 29, 2019 at 11:55 AM

No matter who makes more money, there's typically always a more financial responsible person in the relationship! 💰 Who is (or will be) in charge of paying the bills in your home? You or your boo? 👻...

Having a dj at the wedding worth it?
Veronica, on November 1, 2019 at 4:21 PM

Hey everyone! So, I am in the planning process right now. I am having mixed feelings about hiring a Dj. Is it worth spending 1,000$ Or more on a DJ to play music at my wedding. Let me know your...

Seating charts: yay or nay?
Kayla, on November 4, 2019 at 12:11 PM

When did you actually start wedding planning?
Lynnie, on October 30, 2019 at 10:05 AM

How soon after the proposal did you start wedding planning? Did you dive right in the next day? Did you wait a little while to just enjoy being engaged? Did you it take you awhile to get the ball...

Open or cash bar
Tara, on November 6, 2019 at 7:32 PM

It’s almost wedding time! And one thing we can’t decide on is having a open bar or a cash bar!! What is your thoughts! MIL doesn’t think people should have to pay for their alcohol. I’m not 21 so...

Bridesmaids dresses
Brittnee, on October 18, 2019 at 9:01 PM

Where are y’all getting your bridesmaids dresses from? I’m getting married next October and wanted my girls to wear an orange. I can’t seem to find the color orange I’ve got in my head on a dress.

a dress not like the others...
Laura, on September 2, 2019 at 8:31 PM

Does anyone has a less-popular dress style? Not vintage, but not common either due to neckline, beading, or another element... show me your dress that doesn't look like anyone else's?

I've already had guests ask to bring extra people - true or false?
Lynnie, on August 27, 2019 at 11:41 AM

Hands down, one of the most frustrating parts of wedding planning is being the guest list police! From rogue relatives offering verbal invites, to your guests assuming they can bring a plus one (or...
