I'm Lisa and I'm new here - got engaged October 24th :) I'm in Houston, Texas and I'm in grad school so I really haven't gotten to do much to plan yet. However I do know of one area in which I'm going to need help:
I have a LOT more friends than my fiance so we're having to limit bridesmaids. What are some really neat, special, creative jobs for girls in the wedding party? I have a couple people who will be doing readings, I hope, and I dont' think I'll need cake cutters and punch servers because I'll have caterers. What is something someone might be honored to do?
Hello lovely ladies...I could use some advice. I am planning a wedding for late fall or early winter and want a cute indoor luau thing....make me forget about midwest winters.. Anyway, my fiancee and I want a roast pig and already I have heard rude comments from the (ex)caterer stating" "there gonna be enough pig...you look hungry" I took offense and found a new caterer...Have any of you gotten nasty comments from caterers or wedding cake studios? I would love ideas on how to respond to ignorant banter!
Any suggestions for the flower bouquet? My wedding day is coming soon!!! Next Friday April 11th. I can't wait!
I have a round belly and I think a little round bouquet is not going to help. I have not idea.
As I said before, here I don't have a lot of help.
Can someone give me some ideas what would be the best shape for a bouquet?
I just got engaged a few weeks ago and already I am being inundated with advice about how to lose weight for my wedding.
There seems to be such a focus on starving yourself and being "skinny" for your wedding day. My friend that got married a year ago went on all these weight loss plans and most of my friends feel the same way: that you must be a skinny bride.
I personally don't agree with this but am having trouble finding strength to resist these comments. I'm sure a lot of you have had similar unwanted "advice" from friends. How did you react to this?
Thanks for approving my profile.
I am a Latina Girl from South America, I am getting married on April.
IT HAS BEEN HORRIBLE!
My fiancé is wonderful, we love a lot, and his family cares a lot for me.
BUT, my family!!!?!?!?! OMG! They freak out because the fat girl is getting married.
I feel like Tula in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"
My mom said to a friend JUST IN FRONT OF ME, -"OH if TITI IS GETTING MARRIED EVERYBODY CANS!!!!"
Then when we go to pick some fabrics she gives sorries to the people, --"Yeah, she is fat, but she is getting married with a good boy, Sorry,......Well...... she is trying to lose weight"
I am tired of this! My sister my mom and her cousins are mean!
But my dad is dreaming to give me a beautiful party in a wonderful hotel with a big band and more.
Nor to say about designers here!!!
I went to one to ask her to make my dress, and I found myself with 5 persons around me telling me how fat I was and how hard it is to make a dress for me.
They even wanted to charge me double the price because I AM FREAKING FAT!
Girls you are in a Glorious place. HERE in South America it is hell for FAT BRIDES!
I am so glad I am moving to USA next year.
