yay for more $$!  "Generally" if you file your returns as married filing jointly you would need to have less withheld, so the fact your check went up makes sense to me. It really depends on your specific tax situation, but imo at this point in the year if you''ve been having a little extra w/h,...

After re-reading some of the other replies, I wanted to also say, that even though it''s been over a year I am considering going to a grief support group. Here there are groups through the local hospice program for adults who have lost their parents. It really is something that nobody can understand...

Pichucy, I haven''t been on here lately too much, but first of all I want to say how truly sorry I am about the loss of your dear mother. My heart aches for you. I can somewhat relate to what you are feeling since I lost my dear mom very unexpectedly 5 months from my wedding day. She went from 100% ...

Many little things along the way, but the big WOW was when people started arriving from out of town in the couple of days before the wedding. It was like- Hey! They are here for US!!! This IS huge and it''s REALLY happening! :-)

Not sure what I would pick, but the coolest one I ever met in real life is a girl named Rhiannon.
The first thing she said after we met her was "yes, my parents are Fleetwood Mac fans."

That is so exciting! Hopefully it will turn into something, but even if not you will learn a ton and also be able to put your wedding planning experience to work.

I don''t even know what to say. We had 2 milestone birthdays in our family on the day of the RD, but chose to celebrate them at the wedding before the dancing started since 1 family member wasn''t at the RD. So, clearly we had the total opposite reaction to her "issue" I find it more sad that her ow...

I just finished Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides- it''s one of the best books I''ve read in a long while.

We lucked out- I had priced out a bunch of typical venues in my area, nothing was really striking our fancy- overpriced, or not available on our date, etc. Then we went to a local festival where I picked up a bridal bag of freebies (mostly ads) and saw a flier for our favorite museum, they said they...

Yes, definitely provide a list. A photographer should have their "standards" to which you can add or subtract. For formal shots (family and every combination) make sure the people involved KNOW that, for example, outside of the church, we will need you for about 20 mins to do family shots. Then the ...

Janine, If you have a quality photo shop in your area, I would give them a call to see about ordering your own albums.

It depends on the feel of your wedding and also your guest list.
There is no way we could have depended on a website RSVP,
We sent out 46 invites, and only had to call 4 people.
Everyone else responded by the RSVP date.

I know postcard RSVPs are an option- less postage.
