I'm an offbeat 40+ bride! My hubby & I designed an upscale DIY Pirates of the Caribbean inspired wedding in a Napa wine cave (then a 1960s "Rat Pack" reception in Temecula two months later). Amazing. Worth the wait to meet the right match; our wedding was way more creative than I could have ever dreamed. Happy newlyweds.

1 or 2 photographers for 40 guests?
Rui, on October 14, 2019 at 3:58 AM

I consider we have a small list of guest - around 40. An extra photographer's cost is 500EUR and of course, it would be better than 1. Photos are important to me but does it worth the 500EUR and for...

Makeup for men
Jason, on October 12, 2019 at 10:06 AM

My partner and I are getting married in June. I am just curious if we should have any makeup done for blemishes or such? Neither one of us have ever worn makeup so I am up in the air about it.
