its good to know the bee is part of your ‘one stop shopping’ lol for wedding resources. Your dress looks lovely and i LOVE your accessories, where did you get them?

As for the adhesive question, I use glue dots and can be found at any craft store. But im sure if you look in at the search engine on wedding bee, you will find many reccomendations!

And I hope everything goes ok with the venue!

Happy planning!

Hi and welcome to the hive!  Your dress and accessories are beautiful!

I use rubber cement for everything, so I’d try that.  It may provide a better stick to the shiny envelopes.  πŸ™‚

Welcome to the Hive!

A lot of us don’t fit neaty into one ‘box’ – so the boards are mostly used for questions/discussions specific to those topics. πŸ™‚ I personally love the diversity of the hive, and hearing about all the unique situations. I’m excited to hear about your wedding as well!

Welcome! I think we ticked off even more of the boxes than you:

  • First marriage (for my wife, NotFroofy)
  • Encore (for me)
  • Jewish (me, and our ceremony overall)
  • Interfaith (NotFroofy doesn’t have a religion, but her ideas of a wedding were based on the Church of England ceremony)
  • International (NotFroofy is from Wales, and got her green card only about a week and a half before our wedding, after nine years of working toward it)
  • Plus size (me)
  • Destination (involuntarily, since we couldn’t get married in the area in which we live)
  • Intimate (only 11 guests at the ceremony, although we had a reception back home for 60)
  • DIY (everything from the invitations to the chuppah to the wedding cake)
  • 40 something (NotFroofy was 41, and I was 56)

Oh, and our wedding was on a Tuesday.

However, as others have said, it is not cliquey here.  I bounced around all of the boards here, and never got rejected because I wasn’t a properly “traditional” bride.

@GlassHoppah, I sent you a private message with where to find the photos.

On the Tuesday wedding, the one person to complain (at least to us) was my son.  It was inconvenient for people; my son’s girlfriend (now fiancée) and my daughter’s boyfriend were unable to attend due to it.

Unfortunately, there were not a lot of good choices on the day.  Jewish weddings don’t happen on Friday evenings, or on Saturday before sundown.  And Massachusetts has a three-day waiting period for a marriage license.  You can get around the waiting period by going to court, but you still really have to allow one business day to get the court order and then the license.  Thus, if we’d had the wedding on Sunday (the traditional Jewish day), we would have had to get to Massachusetts by Thursday night.  With a Tuesday wedding, we only had to get to Massachusetts Sunday night.

Also, with only a dozen guests at the wedding, and 60 at the reception back in DC, we thought it more important to have the reception at a convenient time than to have the ceremony at a convenient time.  By having the ceremony on a Tuesday, we were able to drive back to DC Wednesday, and spend Thursday and Friday decorating the reception venue (me) and baking and decorating the wedding cake (NotFroofy) before our Friday evening reception.
