help my friend...

Recommended Posts

My friend is getting married in a church and is looking for ways to make it her own. Can you offer suggestions other then parasols and bouquets for her girls to carry? She is going for the country theme, and her reception is in a barn. Coo, thanks! Drinking lots, holllllllla!

carly it depends on what kind of church she's getting married in... some have more restrictions than others. for example, here in chicago there are several catholic churches where you are not allowed to have aisle runners and your flower girl must carry a pomander because you cant drop petals on the sanctuary floor...

I doubt the church would allow parasols. I got married in a church and had three altar arrangements at the front of the church (on the altar) and then made program fans for all my guests. We didn't decorate any other way because the church was really pretty by itself so we didn't entirely need extra decor, but honestly the church didn't allow it.

Thanks ladies. I think she was thinking more along the lines of for pictures, although if there was something that could stand in, instead of bouquets, I think she would like that too.

we did our formal photos outside in the church's courtyard area, it was pretty. As for the inside unfortunately since most church's have pretty strict rules about decor you can't do a whole lot. I would have her talk to the church first and see what they would allow and then go from there.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
