    I second the vote for Tom Welch.  He officiated my friend's wedding last fall and it was one of the most heart-warming ceremonies I've seen.  She also said that his rate is very reasonable and that he more »

    I had a friend do this for her wedding, because she was closer to the groom.  THe girl stood up on his side with the guys, but she did not wear a suit.  She wore a simple black dress (tea-length), as more »

    Are you saving any money by shopping online at this site vs. going to like, Michael's or A.C. Moore?  We have gotten amazing deals during their periodic sales and using their store coupons. Sometimes more »

    In Response to Re: Searching for an Officiant/ Justice of the Peace: Ditto on pinkkittie's reply. That's what we did. I think it cost us about $45 and a letter of recommendation from another friend. W more »

    Ajuly, Looking at your gallery, I think that was the wedding we stopped by to see last summer!  The centerpieces look awfully familiar (I remember the limes).  We came very early on in the day, but di more »

    Danielle, Thank you for the honest reviews, especially in regards to the flowers and the cake vendors.  Your florist was one that we were considering, but that is the second review we've seen that was more »

    I opted to let my girls do whatever they want, especially because most of them prefer their own hairdressers and want to use them for the wedding.  The flip side of that, is that I have been in many w more »

    My friend's wedding is in 2011 and I went with her to view the venue once it was all done up (for a wedding).  The ceremony was outdoors with a gorgeous view of the river and the  tent area was nicely more »

    We used Lynette's Limousine (in Wilimington?) for my friend's bachelorette party and they were wonderful - clean limo, on time, very polite driver.  If we were going to use a limo for our wedding (whi more »

    Peonie - I know...my grandmother had a fit when she found out that the cupcakes we want for the wedding are $3.50 each.  She remembers the days when you could bake a whole cake for that! more »

    I am watching one of the wedding programs on tv and the bride just tasted a dessert that was supposedly priced at $25K!  Call me old-fashioned, but with all of the hunger and poverty in the world, is more »

    Yes, it is very much all in how you wrap it.  If done correctly (extra tight so that none of the freezer air gets through), the cake should taste just as good. My grandma used to bake up a storm, and more »

    Not sure if they're allowed at your venue, but definitely go with lots and lots of candles.  Different shaped candles - tall ones, short ones, etc.  Our budget is similar to yours ($10 K) and we are g more »

    Oooohhhh...I'm loving the small cake on top idea!  I'm also loving the idea of $2.50/cupcake, as I don't think Sweet or Johnny's were as reasonable.  Does anyone know if IOTC has red velvet cake?  Or more »

    We are definitely going the cupcake route (I love cupcakes!) and are looking into Sweet Boston, as well as Johnny cakes.  Neither one is particularly inexpensive, however my grandparents have offered more »
