– Moissanite

– right hand rings (the expression)

– gift exchanges between bride and groom

– gifts for bridesmaids, groomsmen, MOH, best man and parents

– ring upgrades

– first looks

– save the dates (when I first saw someone write STD I thought “sexually trasmitted disease? Really? What’s that got to do with weddings?” lol)

– Jasmine’s Bridal, Dressilyme and similar Chinese wedding dress websites

I’m sure there’s more…

– that garter tosses are trashy

– that the majority of people don’t have kids at their weddings (I’ve never attended a childless wedding)

And almost all of what y’all mentioned already!

I didn’t realize that some e-rings are not diamonds, but gemstones.   Where I come from, your e-ring is usually a diamond.

  • Wedding: August 2015

  • Moissonite
  • “Cover your plate”
  • Dollar Dance
  • Honeymoon registries
  • Ring upgrades
  • Dress replicas that actually look good
  • That no matter what, someone, somewhere, will think something you’re doing is tacky 😛

The thing that really surprised me was in how many areas/countries a cash bar is the norm.

Not on the Bee, but one of my friends once told me she thought that guests tipped bartenders at a wedding.  I had never, ever heard of that!
