Changing Last Name Services
Morgan, on October 13, 2021 at 4:24 PM

I was curious and see that there are quite a few services/websites that help you change your last name after you are married. Has anyone tried a website or service like that? Any recommendations?

Event timing
Casey, on September 27, 2021 at 1:55 PM

So, I'm finding it typical that most venues you pay for cover 4 hours. Has anyone here actually done ceremony and full reception in 4 hours? How did you time it out?

Including dress code on the details card of your invitation packet?
Michelle, on September 25, 2021 at 6:59 PM
