Re: Help!! How do I best display my cupcakes?

For my daughter's wedding three years ago, we had cupcakes, displayed on a cupcake stand. We hired the stand for the day from the lady who made them. They were a huge hit, and were absolutely delicious :D We used them as bonbonnieres, and supplied small boxes for people to take them home in. As the ...

Personally, I wouldn't.
IF it should happen to rain on the day, appoint a couple of friends/relatives (that you will have already briefed) to go down early on the day, and re-direct guests to the correct spot.

Re: What should bridesmaids pay for?

That's a load of crap! Why bother with bridesmaids then? My girls (sisters) paid for their dresses (which I let them choose otherwise I would have paid for them) they also bought their shoes. They way we saw it was that they can use their stuff again or re-sell their dresses. I paid for their hair a...

I picked our videographer as their package had everything we wanted (after comparing to many others in that price range) and they had some great feedback and recommend...

Re: What are you doing with your dress afterwards?

I will sell mine
It is too hard to store forever and being a fishtail/trumpet style it probably won't be of any use to anyone in the future. Plus is a very small!
I couldn't do a 'trash the dress' shoot either.. It's too nice lol.
