Re: Would u get a tattoo with your husbands name?

I wouldn't get a tattoo of Mr Wickies name but I am planning to get a tattoo when we are on our honeymoon of something that represents us and our marriage. At this stage I am thinking of maybe a hibiscus flower with our wedding date in there somewhere. I look at it this way - even if (god forbid) so...

Re: After a bit of advice re: photographer

I would think that 3 months is more than reasonable to wait. I think most places you get your photos back 4-6 weeks after the wedding. Do you have a contact number or email address for them? I would try and call directly rather than facebooking them. Have you paid for the photos? Might be worth cont...

Re: Whitsundays Wedding

I am getting married at Hamilton Island in 2 weeks. You don't need to get married at the chapel to have your photos there. Most photography packages allow for more than 1 photo location so you just pick where you want to go. Eliseivy, they actually only have one one wedding at a time on hamo. The ce...

Re: Engagement party No Shows - can I not invite them to wedding

I wouldnt invite them - even the one who apologised. Sorry but you can forget to buy the tuna when you go grocery shopping, forget to book your car in for a service, you dont ' forget' to show up at someones engagement party. Such bad form, especially if you have gone to the effort of RSVPing yes. C...

Re: How to tell family/friends that we're already married??!

You could get everyone together and do a slideshow of your lives and at the end have photos of your wedding? I would probably do speeches straight after and say 'Yes for those who didnt get it, we are now married. We had a private ceremony on XX. We hope we havent upset anyone but we wanted a privat...

Re: Leaving reception early

I think its ok. I would stay for the dance, cake cutting and speeches though. I agree that if you have a sunday wedding with an evening reception you kind of need to expect that people will go early.

Re: Eyelash extensions

Eyelash extensions (i think) are a bit like hair extensions. My friend has them and they look amazing on her. They look quite natural. They fall off naturally over time so she has to go get them done every so often but they do look great!

Re: Rings

I agree with the other ladies, do what works for you and your FH and not worry about traditions. FWIW, my engagement ring isn't a stereotypical ring and we would have to get a wedder made if we wanted to match it. I didn't want to do that so I have bought a wedder which I will wear and may not wear ...

Re: What's tacky?

Uhhhhh I just received an engagement invite that was addressed to 'Dan and Alice' written in what looked like purple texta. Is it so hard to write Mr blah and Miss blah? Looks pretty dodgy seeing the rest of the invites look nicer (although addressed the same way in gold texta on the inside). Have ...

Re: small wedding?? invite drama

We are the same - minus the family drama. We are having 20 people. In order to keep it small we planned a destination wedding so we didnt have to invite a whole bunch of people that we never see. I agree with the other ladies though - it is your day. You need to speak to them beforehand and tell the...

Re: Is it tacky to have one wedding car for everyone?

I know someone who had their boys walk to the ceremony venue in their suits. They walked with the photographer and got some great shots! My best friend's hubby walked with his brothers. Bestie was going to walk too as it was a 3 min trip but her ILs booked a car as a surprise. One of my friends wal...

Oh this annoys me to no end as well! My ex husband and I were invited to his cousin's wedding. She asked me to write out her place cards for her, which I was more than happy to do. She had me use people's nicknames on their place cards. His read 'Waz' (his name is Justin, and the nickname is pronou...
