Mode:  

My friend is insisting on bringing a basket full of flip flops for women to change into. I really don’t want this at our wedding, but she won’t give up on it. I guess I have to let her bring it even though it’s doesn’t fit the tone of our wedding.

Ask her to bring ballet flats instead of flip-flops – they’re classier, but she still gets to “help” (aka, have her way)

<br />I bought light blue pearl hair pins for my hair as my “something blue.” I hate them now and hair stylist agrees. Now I have no “something blue,” and all my other accessories are already purchased (jewelry, shoes, garter, undies…).

A popular “something blue” is to embroider your wedding date inside your dress’s lining. Another good option is to sew/pin/tie some blue ribbon somewhere, and it can be somewhere inconspicuous (once again, like the lining of your dress) if you don’t want it visible.

We got married in June, but my reception venue forgot to put out the cello. bags I got for people to take cookies and our cupcakes home in… and it took me days to find the perfect sized bags on Etsy!!

MrsTywinLannister:  If you’re talking about the Jimmy Choo Lang shoe, I am thinking about wearing those as well. I know they’re popular but idc idc idc! Let’s see those pics! Manolos are always great for wedding shoes. Always makes me think of Sarah Jessica Parker and SATC!

We can’t decide on the songs we want for our ceremony, which means we can’t decide what type of musicians to book, which means that with only 6 weeks to go we are seriously running out of time and options and will probably end up having to use recorded music which is not what we wanted…. 

Anyone know where I can hire that tiny violin playing in the background?

Waving to all of the August 2014 brides. My wedding is August 16th, so we are almost there!

I love this thread. It’s good just to get a chance to vent. 

My current first world problems:

I have two little boys, my nephew and my fiance’s nephew, who are supposed to “sign bearers”, instead of actual ring bearers. But I’m 3 weeks away from my wedding, with no sign. And all of the signs I love on Etsy have 4-6 weeks processing time. I think I may be stuck trying a DIY project, and I’m afraid I’ll fail miserably.

Also, I don’t have any bridal shoes. Well wait, that’s not technically true. I planned to buy two pairs of shoes, one heels, one flats. The heels were just for my bridal portraits and shots with my bridesmaids. One, because my fiance isn’t much taller than me, and I don’t want to be taller than him in photos, and two, there’s lots of gravel near my outdoor ceremony location, and I don’t want to fall. So I have the flats already, but no heels and I can’t find anything I like!

I also don’t have any jewelry. Nope none. 

No idea how to wear my hair, two bridal trials later. I have not found any one style that I just love.

No gifts for my maid and matron of honor. I do have bridesmaids gift. But my maid and matron of honor have done so much to help, and contributed alot financially as well. So I want to give them extra special gifts. But alas, I can’t find a gift that says “thank you for spending so much money to help me, but I didn’t have alot of money to use to buy you something in return.”

There’s more, but I’ll stop here. I feel my stress level increasing as I type this. 3 more weeks!!!

DaeEsq I was in a remarkably similar position to you, and it all worked out fine! Best of luck!

PixieGoddess:  Thank you for this!  Unfortunately, I did suggest the ballet shoes because I agree it was classier.  She is still insisting on flip flops.  I am trying to let it go.

Yes, the seamstress actually gave me a small blue ribbon to pin in under my dress.  Works for me!

theshannondee:  We just relocated to a new city in June that was four hours from where we lived. It sounded like a good idea to plan a wedding in this city since our family is spread out and this seems like a half way point. What I didn’t consider was that I have zero friends/family to ask about vendors in this area and that my coworkers are all older and have been married for over 10 years so they also aren’t much help. Did I mention I am 28 and have been to 3 weddings since I turned 18? I was active duty military so missed out on a lot. Not exactly a first world problem but it is a hilarious “problem”

These were fabulous! You have all made me feel SO much better!

Getting married May 2015. Already bought dress, booked venue and photographer. Meeting with officiant next week. I’ve had a minor bridezilla moment. I’m open to different dresses on my three bridesmaids, as long as they are all the same length, color, and material. My sister, Maid/Matron of Honor, thinks it is her moment to shine and has nixed every dress I like saying she hates it. I want to scream that it is my day and not hers and possibly shake her… a lot. I’ve also had some major whine sessions about vendors being unresponsive. Wa wa wa. I’ll get over it.

MissLibra:  Get some newer looking ones and take sand paper to the covers.  Mix up some strong black tea, or coffee, and paint it on the edges of the pages.  Done!

DaeEsq:  I had one if the BEST MOHs ever – I ended up getting her a couple of little things – but she told me the main thing she would like to have is a framed picture of the two of us (or a picture including our husbands). Perhaps you could find a nice frame at TJ Maxx or Marshall’s (or other discount-y store) and give each of them the empty frame with a nice note that you’ll fill it with a pic from the wedding later?

crisy003:  We actually didn’t want a first look either, but the more we looked into the more we realized it was a lot better. All the blogs are saying that 9 times out of 10, the looks on the brides and grooms faces are actually not that magical because they are so nervous- but doing a first look can be really intimate and lower the tension/anxiety. So we changed to a first look 6 weeks before our wedding! Our photographer is happy to come earlier and earn a little extra!

baileyjosephine:  I have a really similar issue since Fiance and I are getting married in our home state, which is a 2 hour flight/16 hour drive from where we currently live and most of our friends are
