WHAT? No. Absolutely not. Here's the thing. I am a married woman (don't kick me smile ). I NEVER read ANYTHING that is my husband's. That's absurd! I can't believe your friend tolerates that. I don't open or read anything that hubkins does not g...

Here's what I've found, and this is just coming from me. My sister did my makeup for my wedding, and it was fabulous. But it was only fabulous because she knows exactly what I like. First of all, look at the person recommending your artist. Do they have makeup on that is similar to your style? Look ...

The camera bag works... my husband put the box in a microphone bag and popped the question at one of his concerts!

The box certainly adds romance, so I would try to keep it involved... it gives her just one more ounce of anticipation right before you open it. :3

Well, personally I went with site rental and offsite everything else, but not for budget''s sake. I did this because I wanted freedom. I wanted a caterer I picked, not one the venue said I had to use whether I liked his food or not. I wanted any linens I wanted, and most all-inclusives make you pay ...

The average woman gains 30 to 35 pounds during pregnancy, and unless your BM has a personal trainer, she won''t have that weight dropped in six weeks (and she shouldn''t go through that stress with a brand new baby anyway!)

I didn''t really think too hard about the mother''s dresses. I know I do wish MIL had chosen a different color, though, in hindsight. Our colors were black, red and white.

I think one of the biggest problems is this precise question: "I think the question is if your desire to be married and have a family is greater than your desire to be with this man?" Here''s why.

It''s different for everyone, frilly. My point was, it''s best to keep your mouth shut when it comes to strange brides and their wedding dresses.

I agree with SuiteLady. There is a difference between using a woman and just... not wanting to get married. As she said, the man in the first relationship is happy. He in''t just using her. He clearly loves her and everything. He just doesn''t want to get married. SHE is the one discontent with the ...

To those who comment positively... I''m sorry. You think it''s flattering, but it''s awkward and embarrassing.

My dilemma was this... I only had two bridesmaids, and one lived in Ireland. So she wouldn''t make it. My to older sisters both lived in other states and wouldn''t be there.

Oh yes, I had dress remorse big time. I just had to keep reminding myself that I picked it for a reason and surely I''d love it on the big day.

And I did.

Sounds high to me. My officiant cost $250, all fees and travel included. [And he was fantastic! I would get married all over again just so I could work with him again! Image]
