Re: not having dad give you away

I'm in the same position. I doubt my father will come to the wedding, even if I pay for his flights, travel and accommodation and I'm not that close with him in the first place so I will be walking myself down the aisle. Bugger the old, out dated tradition, I don't need anyone to give me away, I don...

Re: Bridesmaid shoes?

I'm getting my girls to each get a pair of nude shoes, I don't care if they're sandles, pumps, peep toes, flats, whatever they want that they find comfortable, I think brides need to be considerate of their mades to an extent.

Re: Waxing

If you want to wax your underarms for the big day, start asap and get it done regularly, it will mean you get better results when you get waxed for the wedding

Re: How to ask for copies of digital photos...

One thing I'd just thought I'd put in quickly, double check with your photographer, I'm read somewhere a photographers opinion of people with digital cameras, getting in they way etc.

Re: Offending Brother of Groom, not a Groomsman

I'm having a kinda similar problem, with FH's brother, he's going to be a groomsman but for the first year or so of our relationship he was a complete pig to me, me and his now ex were best friends and had a falling out so she poisoned him against me, he's only just started to come good, but I don't...

Re: Anyone care to share schedule for their big day?

Hey ladies, I've done one, but I'm not real sure if I've done it correctly or if it's any good, I can send it through to you if you'd like to see how I've put it together?

Re: More than one wedding dress!!

I personally think 3 is excessive, but I do love the idea of 2. My thoughts when I saw your 2nd dress inspiration is that while the train isn't like your ceremony dress, it is liable to still get stood on and be a hassle for dancing, but at the end of the day, it's your day, your decision, if that i...

Has anyone dealt with Duosheng within the last year? Are they still more often than not making good dresses?

Re: Anyone ordered a dress from these sites?

Have you thought about emailing a picture of the dress to duosheng? I've sent off a picture of the dress I want for my BMs and the quote they sent back for best quality was $175, after an 8% discount for buying 3 together. The reviews I've read on here for duosheng are fantastic

Re: Any thoughts on NOT having favours?

I have to agree with the other ladies, unless it's something edible or a stubby holder I think it's a waste. We're having a small jar of honey that came from the bees on our farm and that fbil is collecting, but otherwise we wouldn't bother

Re: Walking down the aisle alone

No grandparents alive, no siblings, no close family whatsoever and mum and dad are liable to start fixing to beat the snot out of each other if they're within 5m of each other. I don't see how I could have either parent walk me down without the other being completely pissed off and never having a go...

Re: Walking down the aisle alone

Oh thank god I'm not on my own, I was sure it like NEVER happened with the reactions people have had. That is a beautiful idea about having your FH walk back up the aisle to meet you elocingrace

Walking down the aisle alone

Has anyone walked down the aisle themselves? I've never actually thought about walking down the aisle with anyone, but whoever I tell that I'm going solo, they all tell me I shouldn't, even though I don't have a very good relationship with my father. Is it completely wrong to not walk down the aisle...
