  1. I wore this incredible dress to my destination wedding this October. I have sent it in for an extensive cleaning (worth $250) so the dress is in perfect condition. It has been altered slightly (shortened) I am 5'7 and honestly I could have used for it to be shortened even more...I did not want to lose any of the train. it also has a French Bustle (which you can decide to use or not) added from Anna's Alterations (adding $75 in value) It was purchased at Anjolique Bridal (Charlotte-Huntersville) and retails for over $1300. It is V-neckline, sheath, 2 piece gown with charmeuse satin lining and

We had one big table so I can't help you with the seating...but they really packed us in. I'd talk to the wedding planner if you want a certain number of people at each table. They provided a guest book/favor/cake table and I assume they would provide a sweethea

For those that are already married - did they let you do a "signature drink"? How long did it take for your makeup and hair to get done at the salon? I'm working on the "day of" schedule, I've alloted 2 hours, that should be good right? It's just me. Thank you! I've booked my apt. for 11:30 ..4pm reception.

I just went to Ulta and I told the lady someone said the Urban Decay makes them look oily and she recommended the anti- oil slick version. Also, she said in a pinch some cheap White Rain Hair spray does wonders (she was a Makeup artist who works on brides q
  8. Need advice about my biggest pet peeve: Two weeks before my big day one of my guests made a comment insinuating there was a possibility of her getting engaged during her stay at our destination wedding. While our wedding is not until Saturday, she is arriving Tuesday with her boyfriend, 2 days before most everyone else (including us) arrive. We have a small party of 21 including us and the majority know this guest so I know everyone would be at the very least congratulating her and what not. Am I a complete jerk that I don't want to share this trip with her? I am trying not to be bridezill

We are going to Spain, France, and Italy for our honeymoon and will be spending some time in Florence as well. Any restaurant reccomendations are appreciated too (I
  10. I ended up printing my own on cardstock (got it for free from my dad as he works for a printing company). I made my own template with powerpoint and it was pretty easy to get the right size (just did a few practice runs first). Here are mine!

I believe as long as it's in the original packaging (which it is) and it's not worth much in terms of value (they don't want you bringing in high retail value things if they think you're going to sell it) then

I sort of just want to say oh well and just the two of us stand up front, no speeches, totally untraditional, which is fine by me!! My mom is
