We’re older than the average couple but madly in love. We were planning a regular ceremony/reception, but when our venue closed down we decided to elope instead. We’re now going to New York to get married in Central Park, with a carriage ride to Tavern On The Green where we’ll have a wedding luncheon. I’m still getting a wedding dress and FH is getting a new suit. My brother and niece, and FH’s best friend, will be there too. We’ll even have a pretty but small wedding cake at the restaurant. It should be lots of fun!

Baker disappeared?
Sandy, on March 3, 2019 at 7:54 PM

I was messaging with a shop in NYC called “Eat Great Cake” but my conversation and her listing have disappeared. She was one of my finalists so I’d like to find it again. Help?

Alternative reception activities
Sandy, on January 11, 2019 at 4:53 PM

We’re a bit older and neither we nor our friends do the dancing thing, so we’re not having a band or dj at our reception for ~25 people. We’re just setting up a laptop & speakers for some music....

Sandy, on December 26, 2018 at 11:21 PM

OMG, I’m so upset. We’ve had a venue for both ceremony and reception reserved for 3 months now and I found out today that they’ve closed down. No warning, no word, nothing. I’ve started looking again...

Trouble finding the dress
Leah, on December 7, 2018 at 10:10 PM

Even before starting to look at dresses I feared I’m not the type of person that would ‘know’ or have a sentimental moment when finding ‘the’ dress. At this point I’ve been to 4 stores and tried on...
