    Hi meanbean, We had my now-father-in-law marry us, and it was wonderful. He's a fantastic speaker and a great guy, and it was really special and made our ceremony very personal. I'd recommend it highl more »

    Hi ladies, I got married a year ago and haven't been very active on the boards since then, but now I'm planning my best friend's bachelorette party from afar and would love any ideas you might have on more »

    In Response to Re: I've turned into an etiquette monster!!!: Goodness, it's a really tough one!  I mean, if you have 50 co-workers chip in to throw you a shower and buy you a gift, that's a lot of tha more »

    We had Flipside, and they were amazing.  Still get compliments on them almost a year later.  Everyone danced their a$$es off all night. more »

    Oh my goodness - after my wedding, this stuff drives me nuts. DH and I recently flew halfway across the country to attend a close friend's wedding.  It was a potluck, "green," vegetarian wedding, mean more »

    I happened to buy a pretty white dress for my RD, but was concerned at the time that the guests would think I was taking the bridal thing over the top!  Glad to hear I'm not the only one.  I love the more »

  • Forum Post: When did you know?

    Posted 06/11/2009 03:08:58 EDT

    Aww, these are so sweet! I met my DH right after graduating from college. It felt right immediately, but I was so young that I wasn't thinking about marriage (didn't even know which finger an e-ring b more »

    Hey kmt, Hmm...I think booklover might be on to something.  If I were you, I'd probably press FI to spill the beans on whether it's a shower!  Maybe that's why he is so adamantly against attending.  I more »

    For what it's worth, I just wanted to mention that, especially for men, be aware that platinum is heavier than gold and a thick, wide ring could be heavy to wear.  The guy we bought our rings from has more »

    Kinda off topic now, but post related so I'll ask. What is a good way to get calcium with out eating sugar laden yogurt?  I am trying to cut out fake sugar and real sugar, so i started eating stonyfie more »

    It all depends on the brand of whey protein.  I've tried a few different ones...some taste great, some are pretty gross.  GNC's brand of whey protein is really good, I've tried most of the flavors and more »

    I haven't done my formal album with my photographer yet (even though it's been nearly a year...whoops...) but I ordered albums for my parents and in-laws from and they were gorgeous.  more »

  • Forum Post: Flip flop basket?

    Posted 05/23/2009 01:14:58 EDT

    I was in there last week, and they literally had a rainbow of colors, so I'm sure you could find something pretty close.  I had hoped to get a bunch of white flip flops, but the store only had a few, more »

    When is your wedding?  I'm wondering because mine was in August, and I was disappointed to learn that most of the flowers I wanted were out of season (and thus would cost a fortune to import).  It mig more »

    Hey kmt, I am curious about whey protein (was eyeing it in Trader Joe's yesterday).  Does it have a strong taste or odd texture?  I don't know if I could do protein shakes, but mixing it into oatmeal more »

    Posted 05/23/2009 12:56:28 EDT

    We had a flip flop basket at my wedding, and I guess people liked it b/c most of them disappeared.  It wasn't a big deal - we bought up a bunch of Old Navy $1 flip flops in random colors and sizes and more »

    Hi lowren, We had a similar situation - my parents paid for the bulk of my wedding, and they were the "hosts."  I sort of wanted the RSVPs to come to me, but it meant a lot to my mom, so we had them s more »

    I completely agree.  Have an uneven bridal party.  We did, and it was not a big deal at all.  It's definitely not worth hurt feelings. more »

    Oh mah gawd...I paid somewhere in the ballpark of $300 and thought that was outrageous! I got mine cleaned and preserved at Dependable Cleaners, and it seems they did a great job (but only time will t more »

    I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that they're fishing for gifts just because their engagement party is happening awhile after they got engaged. My parents insisted on throwing an engagement party for more »

    [Quote] I talked to the bride's sister. At her engagement party, most of the family brought gifts and a few of the friends - a few things from the registry, some gift cards, and mostly cards with mone more »

    Posted 04/07/2009 03:47:51 EDT

    Hi vicki, I wore a pearl & crystal headband with my veil and I loved it. I bought mine at Shoes to Dye For. It wasn't super cheap (can't recall the price, but somewhere between $100-150) - but it look more »

  • Forum Post: Odd Thank you Note

    Posted 04/07/2009 03:41:19 EDT

    I would definitely start by asking someone else who attended the shower about the thank you note they received. I think it would be a bit too "touchy" to ask the bride directly whether she received th more »

    My bridesmaid dresses were from Ann Taylor, on sale for about $55. They had the choice of strapless or straps, and they all chose straps and could wear regular bras. They wore their own (silver) shoes more »
