Brittani, on September 14, 2023 at 12:35 PM

Starsallalign, on February 8, 2022 at 11:25 PM

Is anyone using a QR code on your invitations? I’m wondering what the best and cheapest QR code maker out there is. I want one that will direct to my wedding site.

Save the dates
Jennifer, on July 6, 2022 at 7:06 PM

Is it cheap of me and my soon to be husband to print out save the dates on paper and give it to people like that? We are getting married next year and can't afford to spend a bunch of money on save...

Cooking for reception?
Bella, on February 4, 2016 at 5:47 PM

Okay I know this isn't the norm but I'm just wondering everyone's opinion. Nobody would be cooking the day of the wedding. It'd be a couple days before and it'd be stored then re-heated in the oven....
