Despite FH and I being together 4 and a half years, living together and even having him over at our house on many occasions, when we got his wedding invite it said "FH + 1" on it.

Re: Post wedding depression

I must admit I havent stopped since our honeymoon. Have been so busy that I havent had a chance to get down or bored. My close friend did though, she was a mess and still has those feelings 5 months on. I think it is down to the individual and nothing to be ashamed about. I think a good idea is to s...

Re: December Weight Loss Thread

Congrats on the wedding!!! any sneaky shots of the dress?? (from a fitted mermaid dupion silk bride to be )Don't worry about your very small gain.

Re: Disposable Cameras at weddings?

someone on here did something really sweet like had a list on each table of "moments" they wanted their guests to capture. It was almost like a bit of a game in poem form for the guests to see if they could get all the photos, i.e. "mother of the bride crying" "father and da...

Re: what to do...

I don't mean to be insensitive but I think sending the cheques back is incredibly rude. Sorry I can understand how that might seem rude (and if i wasnt me i would probably say the same thing!!) but it is hard when you dont know the full story... I appreciate that! Some of the reasons stated by them...

Re: what to do...

I think you are right.. there is absolutely no point inflaming the situation. Just a generic thank you for your kind gift - and then move on. thanks I was having a moment of anger but I need to remove myself from it! no point causing drama. :roll:

what to do...

I would like opinions please.. I had a few family members not attend our wedding due to silly reasons and to be honest just sheer selfishness in my opinion. However, they still sent up cards and cheques with a family member who did attend. I dont particularly want to cash the cheques and I dont want...

Re: How to incorporate an item of my nans who has passed

Im sorry to hear about your nan and your sister. We have donated to a charity in lieu of bonbonierre and printed something along those lines on the back of the place cards. Perhaps you could do the same with beyondblue.org and write something about it being in memory of your sister? or nan?

Re: NOVEMBER Weight Loss Thread

good healthy and balanced eating. If i want avo, I eat it...the nutrients in it far outweigh margarine so I think spreading it on things is fine...as long as you arent having it for breakfast lunch and dinner! it is full of the 'good' fats. I also use nuttelex but i mean, we have one tub for months ...

Re: when will you begin to plan wedding after engagement?

We had an 18 month engagement. I didnt want any longer than 6 months. I would recommend getting onto it and just getting things done because stuffing aruond and umming and ahhing is the worst (and what we did! :lol: )
