Re: Wedding invitation- friend/partner/guest? what to say?

Guest name and partner is correct, even if the person doesn't officially have a partner/spouse.

I'm not getting married until November but am planning on getting a facial every month now until the big day. How long before your wedding day did you get your last facial?


I did the very same thing as you are planning. My last one was 3 days before the wedding.

Re: Entering & Departing Reception tunes?

At our wedding we had a swing band, so the bridal party entered to "Sing sing sing" by the Benny Goodman Band, and DH and I entered to "In the Mood" by Glenn Miller.

Our last song at the reception was "Moon River". :heart:

Re: What are you paying for a band?

Sounds reasonable to me. We also had a four piece swing band (piano, drums, double bass and vocalist) at our reception, which from memory cost about $3,250.

Re: Wisdom Teeth - ahh!

All four of mine were impacted and I got them taken out under general. My recovery was really good minimal swelling and not too much pain, the pain relief worked well. I was back on solids in just under a week.

Re: Deciding who'll walk me down the aisle

I don't think it's odd at all to have both of them walk you down the aisle. Plenty of people these days opt for alternatives to just the father, ie., having both parents either side, being walked down by a brother, step-parent, grandparent, son, etc. My DH's cousin was married a few years ago, and s...

Re: The great underware debate...!

I wore a white strapless Simone Perele bra and matching g-string underneath that I bought for the day, they were pretty and lacy, so bridal enough for me. My dress held me in well so I didn't need any other support stuff. I just wanted something pretty and comfortable.

Re: How involved is your fiance?

I did all the recon (sourcing suppliers, coming up with alternatives for different aspects), and we made decisions about things jointly. I was happy with DH's input.

Did you have to lighten your eyebrows at all?


Fanks :)
I haven't lightened them yet, but I will most likely need to. My sister's wedding is in 8 weeks and I'm a BM, so I don't want to look mismatched for that.

Re: Father/Daughter Dance

Traditionally it is the bridal waltz first, and father-daughter dance second. This is what we did. But these days, you can go with whatever option you feel is best.

My BMs are wearing black and I bet there will be a few guests wearing black too - bigger and better things to worry about in my opinion

I agree. It's only a big deal if you make it so. :D


I agree with al of the above. I don't see it as being an issue at all.

Re: Bridal Waltz

Your first dance doesn't necessarily need to be a waltz. In fact, you will find there are a lot more options if you don't restrict your music choices only to songs in 3/4 time. Our first dance was in 4/4 time and we actually dances a rumba to it. Think outside the square and you might find the task ...

Re: String Trio/Quartet Vs CD Player/Streo

It is obviously an added expense, but live music adds so much more atmosphere. For our ceremony, and during canapes, we had a flute, harp, and cello trio play, and it was just gorgeous. At our reception we had a pianist play dinner music and a swing band afterwards, and honestly it just added so muc...

Re: Hens night invite via email

I think it's nice to receive a proper invite in the mail for all wedding events, but I'm pretty traditional when it comes to all things wedding. Email and facebook style invites can be easily overlooked, and it's more the sort of thing I'd use if I was organising a casual get-together with friends. ...
