“Feminist” Wedding?
Ashley, on April 15, 2020 at 4:47 PM

I know this term means different things to different people. Which is awesome! My Dad is the officiant (more free-spirited ceremony) and we all know I won’t be “given away”, etc. but I’m personally...

Hi everyone! We are paying for the majority of the wedding ourselves, and in order to stay within budget, we have to cut back on the flowers. What are everyone's thoughts on only the groom wearing a...

I don't totally understand the "first look". Why do it? Did you do it? Why/Why not?

Vows: personal or repeat after me.
Kell, on October 11, 2020 at 10:24 PM

Did you have peronalized or did you do repeat after me? I've been to a few weddings where I've overheard guests criticising the nuptials' vows. Due to this, I'm a bit nervous with the thought of...

Cost of officiants
Krystal, on October 12, 2020 at 11:39 PM

Is it just me or is the cost for a officiant ridiculous? First they tell you the beginning price then they say 25 for rehearsal, 1$ per mile for travel, 25 for marriage license signing. Then...

Vows
Ciara, on October 11, 2020 at 5:46 PM

I have my vows written and they’re kind of long. Would it be okay to have them written down and hold them while I say or should I memorize them?..
