Should wine with dinner be included in an open bar package for a rehearsal dinner?
Terri, on May 24, 2023 at 2:20 PM

I actually plan weddings and if a person buys an open bar package per person do you think wine being served with dinner should be included in that package?

Best vs worst money spent
Michelle, on May 20, 2023 at 3:17 PM

For the married couples, what items/services did you feel was worth the splurge that you don’t regret? What do wish you had skipped or researched better?

What things did you not think about during planning?
Michelle, on May 22, 2023 at 6:24 PM

Little costs that add up or details that people don’t tell you about such as who is collecting gifts/cards or arranging delivery of getting ready food, as examples.

Kathleen, on December 29, 2022 at 8:24 AM

Has one already gotten married and preserved their flowers in resin? Who did you use what did you think? Is it worth it?

In changing venues it's possible cocktail hour may be eliminated all together BUT I have no idea what I'm suppose to do with my guest in between ceremony and reception? All suggestions welcome

Venue wants all guest's names
Coll, on May 16, 2023 at 4:48 AM

Our wedding venue requires an alphabetized list of every guest's name one month in advance. Is this normal? My brother and sister both recently had weddings and said they have never heard of this.
