  • Forum Post: Small Ceremony, Large Reception at a later date

    Posted 08/29/2011 07:47:59 EDT

    My sister eloped, and a couple of months later had a "reception": they did NOT try to recreate the wedding -- she didn't wear a wedding dress, they did not have any kind of ceremony first. They did ha more »

  • Forum Post: Black Tie

    Posted 06/12/2011 03:20:15 EDT

    "I know that black tie means that women should wear a long gown, but in reality no one follows these rules anymore. I think you'll be just fine in a short gown" ----------------- See, if I were a gues more »

  • Forum Post: The hiding past

    Posted 06/03/2011 12:40:03 EDT

    sylvs18, Your poll striked me as odd. This is really, really not the sort of issue that the majority gets to vote on, and you get to be either right or wrong with your boyfriend about. Everyone's comf more »

  • Forum Post: And the battle continues

    Posted 05/30/2011 03:30:17 EDT

    And yes, I am biased. My husband and I paid for our wedding ourselves, entirely. So we had the wedding that was within our means. That meant compromise on our parts from what we might do if money were more »

  • Forum Post: And the battle continues

    Posted 05/30/2011 03:25:56 EDT

    "If a woman can't have her wedding day exactly as she wishes..then something is wrong." ---------------------------- To that and to Rogertaylor: it can't be exactly as the bride wants it all the time. more »

  • Forum Post: Thoughts on Framingham

    Posted 05/24/2011 01:06:54 EDT

    If you are looking also at Natick, Norwood, and Walpole -- buy in any of those 3 instead. Framingham schools have some challenges that the other 3 do not have (Walpole being the best of the bunch for more »

  • Forum Post: Wedding Babysitter

    Posted 04/01/2011 12:58:37 EDT

    It isn't an issue of whether you have to pay for babysitting -- you don't have to pay for anyone's babysitting. Or you can choose to pay for your cousin's, because she's coming from out of state. But more »

  • Forum Post: Kids Meal Options on Invite?

    Posted 03/01/2011 02:44:34 EST

    "but I won't pay for a full adult meal knowing they won't eat it" -------------------------------------- It would bug me a bit too, if I knew the kids involved preferred typical "kids foods." And most more »

  • Forum Post: Daddy Daycare

    Posted 02/17/2011 01:50:59 EST

    "Daddy Daycare" rubs me the wrong way. This is NOT childcare. This is parenting. Your husband is the baby's father, and he is parenting his child. I know you're just trying to quickly describe the sit more »

  • Forum Post: How accurate is the Zillow 'Zestimate'?

    Posted 02/09/2011 06:02:49 EST

    It's good if you want a general ballpark -- but you shouldn't use it for figuring out what to offer (or what to price for sale). It isn't that close an estimate. If you want to know generally "is this more »

  • Forum Post: Royals breaching etiquette?

    Posted 01/27/2011 02:40:09 EST

    The save the dates are going to heads of state, etc. So I agree with Redfish -- these are diplomatic ties and there are protocols there that differ vastly from how the rest of us non-royals function. more »

  • Forum Post: Is grad school a bad idea?

    Posted 01/25/2011 08:06:24 EST

    In Response to Re: Is grad school a bad idea?: Dawn, are you saying that if someone ELSE, taxpayers or whomever, is covering your expenses than don't think about if it's right for you, just spend our more »

  • Forum Post: Tipping Question...

    Posted 11/29/2010 02:15:28 EST

    I dislike the idea that owners or managers shouldn't be tipped just because they are owners or managers -- here is an example of why: I worked as a waitress, and on a very busy night, the manager took more »

  • Forum Post: Do sellers have to sign the property disclosure form?

    Posted 11/20/2010 07:07:25 EST

    rodman75: All house sales are "as is." That does not mean what you think it means. And it has nothing to do with whether you sign that form or not. "As is" means that you are not obligated to undertak more »

  • Forum Post: Proof that the Supreme Court Justices don't necessarily have a firm grasp on logic

    Posted 10/28/2010 11:56:52 EDT

    May not make sense to you guys, but I just think you are missing the long history of 8th Amendment precendent here. There are actually logical legal arguments; but you have to understand the legal iss more »

    Posted 08/20/2010 07:07:23 EDT

    "is it possible to ask the selling agent to spread the word about our condo, in order to sell her current listing?" Yes, but you would still owe the commission to the agent you have a contact with. Ob more »

  • Forum Post: Home Staging

    Posted 08/01/2010 08:40:04 EDT

    FSBO, I think the critical comment above was intended to be constructive. Because it is very true that some people will absolutely love the walls. But some people absolutely won't. That doesn't matter more »

  • Forum Post: Difficult Groom's Mother... WHAT TO DO???

    Posted 06/22/2010 08:33:15 EDT

    Ditto Framerican51008 -- Kar is projecting drama and "bridezilla" into this situation that does not exist. The OP is open to a lot of ideas -- splitting when the ceremony vs reception happens, doing i more »

  • Forum Post: How should I respond to a save the date for a friend's wedding who hasn't returned a phone call in 2.5 years?

    Posted 05/15/2010 08:34:22 EDT

    Save the dates don't require any response. Just do nothing and wait for the invite. And when it comes, just decline. I agree with a pp, who said if you send a snarky note you are the bad guy. There is more »
