I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been losing sleep the past few nights. Ahhhhh, 18 days away for me! So many things are going through my head. September 21st can’t come any faster!

Laura, on August 29, 2019 at 5:13 PM

Most didn't mention what kind of dress they had or the neckline that worked with their veil (in an earlier post): Such as a halter, sheath dress, and I chose (x). Or a fit and flare with detailed back...

Fake flowers?
Makayla, on August 26, 2019 at 12:31 AM

What are your thoughts on having fake flowers at a wedding? Obviously not the cheap dollar store flowers, more like hobby lobby price range. I just don’t think I can get behind spending so much money...

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