  • Forum Post: Need Ideas for a Couples Shower

    Posted 10/21/2011 03:29:57 EDT

    I agree with Alf and Kar that you really don't need a theme.  Please don't spend too much time or money crafting one; as long as you plan a fun party, people will have a great time. But, if you're det more »

    I'm not a parent, but aunt to a girl who, as a young child, was never told "no" because her parents told me "it upset her to hear that word."  Sure enough, whenever she was told "no" she threw a horri more »

    Posted 06/24/2011 05:32:45 EDT

    If the bride and groom aren't close enough to you and your boyfriend to know that you were living together, how would they even necessarily know you're still dating?  Would they then have had to invit more »

  • Forum Post: Black Tie

    Posted 06/13/2011 12:20:16 EDT

    I know I'm not Ajuly but I'll add my two cents: Even at black tie events where half the women wore short dresses, MOST of the men wore tuxes.  The few that didn't stuck out, in my opinion, but that's more »

    Kar, I agree that women generally need a floor-length gown for black tie.  When I've been invited to black tie weddings and balls, that is what I have worn. BUT, I have also seen many, many women in c more »

  • Forum Post: Kate Middleton's wedding gown -- what's your vision?

    Posted 04/27/2011 01:17:36 EDT

    I hope Kate's dress isn't strapless.  Nothing wrong with strapless dresses, but bridal fashion has been so dominated by that neckline I'm just getting bored with it.  more »
