Re: Updating facebook status on wedding day? Tacky or cute?

We didn't have time for it. All our friends updated their statuses and uploaded photos so that was done for us really... Personally I don't like it (I don't really want to call it tacky because I think there are other things that are tacky). I would rather be enjoying the day/night than jump on Face...

Re: photographer-change of mind

I wouldn't worry about it too much, the deposits haven't been put down so technically there is no booking and all it does is leave a space open to a person who might think that photographer is everything they want. The photos are the only thing you will have left at the end of the day so you need to...

Re: I'm not enjoying planning my wedding.

Definitely stand your ground. We had so many issues with DH's family it just seemed easier to elope. In the end we agreed that everything was going to be a "surprise" and managed to keep them out of most of it so that we could plan in peace. Planning a wedding isn't all rainbows and colour...

Re: how to choose photographer?

I agree with everything the other girls have said. Personality is definitely important because you will be spending most of your day with these people and you need to feel comfortable and relaxed with them because it will show in the photos. The photographer also determines the feel of the day so it...

Re: Starting off; magnitude of questions!

#1 venue I agree with the others to do a tasting at both venues however I am also a very strong believer in going with gut instinct. Sometimes a venue sticks out to you just because it does. Meet the staff at both, walk around, see what the fit is like. I understand that there is probably a budget y...

Re: In laws and language difficulties

I know exactly how you feel, only I do not get along with my in laws. They will occasionally speak English to me (if I'm alone) but if DH is with me, they will only speak their native language. I have a very limited understanding and ability to speak and I am really self conscious about speaking it ...

Re: How did you involve your mum

DH and I were pretty strict about doing everything ourselves but my parents also contributed. She came shopping for my dress, bridesmaids' dresses and helped with choosing place cards and order of service books. She also wanted to help with the bridal shower so she helped MOH and I organise that.

Re: Which do you prefer? - STD's

Personally I don't like 'joke' wedding things (I'm very traditional) BUT if you both like the 2nd one and you feel that it reflects your personality then go with it. There's nothing worse than going to a wedding where the bride and groom aren't reflected in their day at all or worse, when they try t...

Re: how to keep it small!

Unfortunately it doesn't matter how big or small your wedding is, there will ALWAYS be backlash from somebody because every man and his dog feels like they should be invited to your wedding, no matter how they treat you or how well they know you. If his parents are going to be difficult and make you...

Re: Bibs/Aprons - quirky fun!

I have to agree that I'm not a fan either. But if you're concerned about spilling food down the front of you when you go to the reception then I guess you could go ahead with it.

Re: Witness

I would say as long as it isn't the day of, you should be fine to do it whenever. Our priest wanted to know when he lodged our notice of intention to marry (I think just for his own sake) so that was at least a month before). Personally I would do it at least a week to two weeks before. As far as as...

Re: would you find this rude?

Almost the same thing happened to DH on his bucks (his was a complete disaster anyway so I guess it didn't matter) and we only had 1 no show at the wedding (unrelated to the bucks). I will probably offend some people with this but it is my opinion: I understand people place a lot of importance on bu...

Re: offending sister with a bridesmaid....

I think what it comes down to is gut instinct. I ignored mine and ended up having to ask a bridesmaid to step down in favour of the person I originally wanted. You said you instantly knew who you wanted to pick - go with it I say! You're not that close to your sister, I understand that it's hard for...

Re: Photographer dilemma!

I agree with others, $100 is nothing compared to being happy with your pictures. Once the day is over the photos are what you're going to have left to remember your day by so you need to be happy and confident in your photographer's abilities. I acknowledge that what I am about to say may offend: I ...

Re: Children at Weddings

I like the idea of referring to the 10 year old boy as 'ring bearer' rather than page boy and as the others have said the girls could be flower girls Or you could have them in your procession between yourself the the bridesmaids and one could each carry a sign 'here' 'comes' 'the bride' and then you...

Re: Given save the dates - but no longer invited

She kept going so simply said. As I am sure you can understand you no longer need to save the dates. Well done! They should get it by now. So annoying when people expect that they should still be invited even after behaving badly! We were forced into having people we didn't want to invite and they ...

We had a bar near our church as well so the guys could have spent a bit of time there before if they wanted. DH used the opportunity to greet guests as they arrived

Re: Goorm and Groomsmen transportation to Church

I would say the 2nd car option is easier than having the limo go back and forth. Having a taxi or a willing friend or family member get them to the ceremony is probably a good option, however if you want them to have a hired car to make them feel special most companies should have smaller cars avail...
