    Honestly, I'd just buy Avery label sheets at Staples and print them myself on my inkjet printer.  Cheap and fast.

    Posted 06/28/2011 05:38:03 EDT

    We went to a wedding this weekend and saw our first dollar dance!  Well, sort of!  The dollar dance is normal in the bride's culture.  So when the couple did their first dance, a bunch of relatives ca more »

    Do you mean the photobooks you can make with digital photos, like Shutterfly, etc?  Or do you have actual photos you want to mount? If digital, check out this review/roundup: http://www.digitalhometho more »

    We used Alla Breve, which is a husband/wife team that plays guitar and flute.  They are *amazing*!  We saw them at a friends wedding and always knew we'd hire them.  They have a few samples on their w more »

    You could look at Pyara in Burlington.  I have only had my hair cut there, but it is a really nice place!  And I know they have a room they let you use if you are getting married so you can hang out, more »

    Posted 06/13/2011 12:25:32 EDT

    Yeah, *tell* me about it!  It was insane and I felt really bad because it was just too much money at the time.  I'm not sure when bachelor/bachelorette parties went from a *party* to a luxurious, splu more »

    Posted 06/12/2011 05:29:55 EDT

    Ouch!  That's insane, but somewhat true.  Luckily the only out of town wedding we were in was for DH's sister, so we'd have been flying there no matter what.  But for an out of town wedding, I'm not s more »

    I think it is tacky and I've never seen it done.  But, that's bc I grew up here and it is not a common tradition around here.  If the majority of your guests know the tradition, I think you are okay t more »

    Ours was 3 weeks before the wedding.  Caterer needed the final number like 3 days before.  But I wanted to leave enough time to do the seating chart and escort cards and I knew I'd need the time!  (wh more »

    No, but I wanted to!  Alas she was booked on my date.  I saw a ton of good reviews for her last year, that was why I wanted to book her. If she is booked, I used Kelly Bonica from Blondie Salon in Wal more »

    I personally always wanted one.  I feel like it may not seem necessary right away, but it will be really nice to have in the future.  Pictures are great, but video will be really wonderful to watch 10 more »

    Honestly, the only part of this wedding that I even remotely care about is the wedding dress.  I don't remember Princess Di's wedding, but pics of her dress are pretty hideous to me (maybe that was th more »

    Hey Ven!  Well, we hit Savannah a few weeks ago, but we didn't get out much so I'm not sure I can be that helpful!  We went downtown for a few hours one afternoon and we enjoyed walking along the rive more »

    Huh, I've never heard of that and I think I'd find it odd too.  And be a little put off by it.  I also love wrapping presents and part of my enjoyment with giving presents is the surprise element of i more »

    No you definitely did not do anything wrong.  You are under no obligation to have her as a BM.  Stick with who you have chosen and don't add her out of guilt (that always just leads to problems later more »

    Posted 04/13/2011 11:47:53 EDT

    Yeah, I've always believed save the dates were sent out 1 year to 6 months before the wedding.  Shorter than that they seem unnecessary.  But of course, if you want to send them, do it!  Just know you more »
