Who looks after cards and gifts at reception?

Hi all, Quick question re cards and gifts at reception? Who is normally responsible for this? The majority of our guests, including parents, will be taking a coach back to their hotel after the reception. We are getting a hire car to take us back to the hotel. So............what do we do with the gi...

Re: Can I send my invites out now?

thanks everyone. We have a wedding website as well..which most people have used. About 70% of attending guests have already booked their accommodation. So, it is not like they need the invites for that....most of them have it sorted. It is more for the registry details and RSVP stuff. We have 3 RSVP...

Can I send my invites out now?

My invites are all ready to go! Very exciting. I always intended to send them out beginning of August at the 3 month mark. However, I am getting SO many people email me me asking for our registry details so they can get a gift sorted. At first, it was just one or two people, so I just emailed it to ...

Re: June weight loss thread

how is everyone going this month???

I am still cruising in the high 65's. I have my first dress fitting next week - so so nervous about how I will look in it! I will not have meters of fabric to hide in like I did with the sample (two sizes too big). So, its going to be quite confronting I think!!!!

Re: would you use a celebrant with bright purple or blue hair?

I probably wouldn't....I think staring at bright purple hair would be distracting....for myself, my hubby and our guests! It could quite possibly take something away from the ceremony. Everyone staring at the purple hair instead of listening to the words.

Re: How much are people spending on Bridesmaids dresses?

US$191 per dress - floor length chiffon gown from House of Brides. That included rush cut and rush shipping from the US as well. It would have been US$161 per dress without rush cut and rush shipping.

Do you meet with photographer before wedding?

For those of you that booked your photographer without meeting them personally, did you meet up with them before your wedding to ""run through" the day? I booked ours purely based on the website and blog photos and from personal referrals - so I knew they were amazing! But, we have no...

We are getting both our rings made from the jeweler who made my engagement ring.

Re: after the bride & groom leave..........

Well the reception must finish no later than 11:59pm but we're going to leave at 10:30..... So I wanted to know, do guests usually leave pretty much straight after the bride & groom do? We've told our musician that we're leaving at 10:30 so he can just pack up and play the iPod from thereon.. B...

Re: after the bridge & groom leave..........

I think it depends on how long your package is...and when you want to leave?

This is what we are doing.
Our bar will stop serving drinks at 11pm but the reception will only finish at 11:30pm. We will leave at 11:15....therefore they guests will only be able to stay 15 more minutes.

Re: DIY invitations - how early??

I wouldn't recommend using an UHU stick. It's not really meant for anything other than pasting your assignments in your school book. It comes unstuck eventually and can warp the paper. Try double sided tape. It's not expensive and easy to use. I completely agree. I used UHU glue stick for some card...

Re: DIY invitations - how early??

I don't think its too early to get started now. I am getting married only 1 month before you and this is what I am doing for comparison. I have 5 months to go...and had all my invites printed and cut to size last month (6 months out). I have completely finished order of service booklet covers and ha...

Re: Bubbles @ ceremony - guests still inside church?

Me too! I would love petals - but my church doesn't allow petals or anything that has to be cleaned up!

Good point about the bubbles getting on the dress! I am perhaps thinking of not having anything. It just might be easier.

Thanks for your replies everyone!!

Re: Buy a brand new bottle of perfume for the day?

I will be buying a new perfume. I plan to go to DJs with FH - and pick a new fragrance for both of us - that we both like on each other. Like you - all my other scents remind me of some other time - and ex boyfriends! There is no way I am wearing a scent on my wedding that reminds me of an ex! I def...
