    Well thanks.

    Posted 02/09/2011 02:07:49 EST

    Forgot to mention as part of my old that my mom (who does not have a green thumb) managed to keep alive a plant my dad brought to her and me in the hospital when I was born.  Her dream was always that more »

  • Forum Post: Boudior Photographer Recommendation

    Posted 02/09/2011 01:29:29 EST

    I didn't do boudoir pics but one of the photographers we looked at does them:  Adriano Batti.  We did not end up going with him for our wedding but liked his pictures and he seemed reasonably priced.  more »

    Posted 02/09/2011 01:22:10 EST

    I think it makes sense to get your dress first to set the style.  I don't think they really have to compliment each other but if you have a simple dress, it may be odd to have really formal dresses an more »

    I went to a wedding at Brooksby Farm this past fall and thought they did a very nice job.  I think it is quite affordable too. more »

  • Forum Post: Need top of the line Vendor Recommendations

    Posted 02/03/2011 05:41:29 EST

    We used Bharat as our photographer (from recommendations here) and Dream Images as our videographer and were happy with both.  I've also heard really good things about Hitched for photography.  I had more »

    Posted 09/08/2010 02:46:44 EDT

    You actually don't need to be a member of the Algonquin Club.  We looked there.  Very pretty space but the coordinator at the time was odd.  I think it would perfect for that sized wedding. more »

  • Forum Post: Music suggestions/poll?

    Posted 08/04/2010 08:49:38 EDT

    Our first dance was to "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge and we entered to "Love Will Keep Us Together" by The Captain and Tenille.  Both had some significance.   You didn't ask but our last song was more »

    Posted 02/23/2010 07:59:00 EST

    I actually did test them at home in the holders - they came as a set.  When I tested at home, they were fine.  Some did last the whole night but most did not.  If you're using them for a ceremony, it' more »

    Posted 02/23/2010 07:57:52 EST

    Thanks for the congrats. 

    The initial review wasn't bad but it wasn't accurate or fair either so I revised.  I'll try to post pics when I get them. more »

    I just edited my post, which I planned to do even before I saw your post.  I feel bad I made you concerned because we really are happy and I would still highly recommend him.  I think I was judging to more »

  • Forum Post: Candles4Less?

    Posted 02/19/2010 08:03:11 EST

    I actually now do not recommend them.  Many of the candles burnt out before the guests arrived at the actual wedding.  Fortunately, my vendor had candles and replaced them for me.  So, not worth the s more »

    We are back from our honeymoon, still fighting jetlag and I figured I should write my wedding review.  I didn't post a ton on these boards but lurked a lot and always found these very helpful.  I had more »

  • Forum Post: Dress is out of reach...

    Posted 01/25/2010 08:13:19 EST

    I also ended up with something completely different than what I thought I would want so agree that you should try things on in person (and in your budget) and go from there.  more »

    I doubt Macy's would take them off for you but it seems silly to pay more than you have to, as long as you are absolutely sure they are the same things.  The manufacturer may have made some changes to more »

  • Forum Post: Palladium...

    Posted 01/18/2010 06:23:58 EST

    The jeweler where we bought our wedding bands highly suggested palladium.  My rings are both platinum.  He suggested platinum for my band since my ering is but for my fiance, he suggested palladium in more »

    I may be chiming in late without any great advice but I will say that you are not alone.  I had a harder time with BM dresses than my own. It basically came down to 2 choices.  3 people liked 1 and 2 more »

    My wedding is now 18 days away and I feel strangely calm and under control (which is a good thing).  I just want to be sure I'm not missing anything.  I have my final dress fitting Monday and someone more »

    My cousin got married on the Cape last year and it was oviously beachy.  She gave us monogrammed straw beach bags, beach towels, and JCrew flip flops (to also wear at the reception).  I thought it was more »

    Ooh, I like your ring Northern.  Kar, I've been engaged for over a year and still haven't taken a pic of my e-ring.  I'm bad about photos but I'm sure once I have professional ones, I'll post. Liz, I more »
