Re: Music for walking down the aisle..

Do it!

I am planning to walk down to Songbird by Eva Cassidy, and the rest of the music I've planned for my ceremony is quite rock-y. But it's very us, we would never be the type to have a string quartet playing.

Re: Little upset about first dress fitting

I had a similar experience at my recent dress fitting, in regards to being told not to lose any weight. I'm 3.5 months out, and hadn't really started the full wedding weight loss plan. I was really upset when she told me that, because I wouldn't be happy if I got married at this size. But I've since...

Re: Wedding Budget

We're in Sydney, Australia

Budget:$22k AUS (just under $20k USD).
80 guests
cocktail reception (which costs the same as a sit down dinner), with quality beer, wine and champagne.
Our parents are contributing just under half.

The honeymoon, on the other hand, it also $22k :oops:

Re: "your dream venue doesn't exist" -- Mom

What were your mum's issues with the venue? If you loved it, maybe you should try to convince her it was good instead of looking for something else?

I know it's awkward when they're paying, but unless they are genuine concerns that she has, this may be your best option.

Re: Interfaith couple and teaching guests the HORA

I'm sure everyone will figure out the steps, just make sure they feel welcome to join in. My partner is Jewish and I'm not, and I never join in at his family events because everyone knows I'm not Jewish and I feel uncomfortable about it (no one ever invites me to join in either!). So maybe just a qu...

As I said, I guess there are cultural differences between various places in the world about the difference between married and cohabiting. Only you know your guests, and how they would prefer to be referred to.

I feel the same way. I''m exactly 6 months out and very over it. We have no money. FIs family are on the one hand trying to add people to the guest list left right and centre, and on the other hand are telling us we shouldn''t be spending so much money on the wedding and have ''strange priorities''....

That dress is seriously stunning!

I would just wear some big drop earrings, and maybe a bracelet. I wouldn''t bother with a brroch, I don''t think you need it.

Something like these might work:
