Just how does a woman go to the bathroom in her wedding dress, anyway?! (Never, never, never crossed my mind til I saw it being discussed on the boards.)

@elizabeth2004:  +1 I always saw people laughing at this in movies and such and I was like, it really can’t be that hard. Nope it sure is. Add a layer of spanx in the mix…

There is an elderly neighbor who has known my family the entire time we’ve lived in this neighborhood, who is very kind and sweet.  Her husband passed away a few years ago, who was the man who taught me how to hit a golf ball and do other things as a kid.  I wanted to invite her to the wedding, and asked every SINGLE member of the household for her first name this morning while trying to address invitations.


We knew her husband’s first name, but always knew her as Mrs.Neighbor…and after 20 years of living next door, we’re a bit embarrassed to ask!

So her invitation will be addressed to Ms. Neighbor!

heels in the grass!!!! this never worried me much before but getting married on the lawn of a country club and using an aisle runner. never in my life have i had to explain so many times that sinking into the grass will be scary enough for the bridesmaids/moms let alone once you have unstuck yourself the fact that you will be dragging the runner like toilet paper on the bottom of your shoe!

everyone thinks im nuts and overthinking it!

Oh geeze… My list may be more along the lines of “Things no one thinks about until they’re a bride”

1) French vs. American bustle

2) Bouquet Jewelry

3) Bunting!!!!

4) First looks

5) The “other” meaning of Save-The-Date Cards

6) Strassed shoes

The list goes on…

Mine is identifying my “best” friends. I could literally have 3 maids of honor and one bridesmaid… You wouldn’t believe how much I’ve stressed over how to make sure everyone knows they are important and no one has hurt feelings.

@DawnaN:  Check out solemates or starlettos- they are plastic caps the fit over your heel to keep it from sinking!

Anything to do with bonboniere. I just refer to it as “bonningtons” and say we aren’t having any.

@GoddessofNerdvana:  Lol, maybe you can do some stalking on public real estate info. Try googling your county website.

@GoddessofNerdvana:  You can still address her as “Mrs. John Neighbor.”

Also great ideas of asking the mailman, and checking out the tax records.

@elizabeth2004:  i was a bit concerned with this too but it wasn’t that difficult.  i used the handicap washroom (more room).  i just hiked up all of my dress and forward a bit.  no problem.  i didn’t even need assistance.  whew.
