I'm originally from upstate New York but have lived in Florida for the last 11 years and my FH is born and raised in FL. My FH and I met out at a bar one night and have been inseparable ever since. I miss having the changing seasons (fall is my favorite time of the year) so that was my big deciding factor on when and where to get married. We Chose The great Smoky Mountains to capture the cool crisp air, changing leaves and as a bonus its a half way point for both families (all of his are in GA/FL and mine are all in NY/VT/NH).

Cathy, on October 9, 2019 at 2:02 AM

Ugh, I just want this over with! So, the reception venue finally gave us the final cost, which was way more than we expected. I tell my FH this, and then he starts yelling at me, as if I have any...

Will you be calling your in-laws "mom" and "dad"?
Michelle, on October 8, 2019 at 4:56 PM

So, I am embarrassed to say that I've gone several years without referring my fiance's mom to any kind of name. When I first met her, she never told me what to call her and I didn't realize that until...

rsvp typical % accepting
Kathy, on October 6, 2019 at 5:05 PM

I know that if you plan to invite people to attend your wedding you should really plan for them to attend. However, there seems to be a ratio out there somewhere (only a guess) that if you invite a...

Which slip?
