    There are some really helpful tutorials for DIYs here, & I have definitely found a LOT of inspiration here (also realized that some people kick major butt at making diys look good), but as far as learning things… I guess I have gained perspective on weddings in general, cost, effort, etc.


    Oh, I learned a bunch of acronyms though 😀 lol!

    I have learned soooo much.  Like prices, scheduling, candy buffets, signature cocktails, and the list goes on and on.

    I have learnt so so so much! The ones that stand out for me are:

    – You can DIY invites

    – What a bustle is

    – Hair flowers um exist…

    – BLUE shoes are awesome!!

    – Etsy – a whole world of goodness

    – Photo booths

    – Boudouir photos!

    Wow, and that is just what came to my head straight away!!

    I learned about a lot of things that I didn’t do, like Save-The-Date Cards, trash the dress session, boudoir shoot, etc. I also learned about a lot of machines that I would never have the patience to use (Cricut, etc.)

    One thing that I found out about here that I did do was Out of Town bags. Probably one of the easiest DIYs I could have chosen, lol…

    That cash bars / dollar dances are tacky (where I grew up they are very very common) 🙂

    I learned there are actually different ways to bustle??

    And how dresses look on actual women, thats been SUCH a godsend.

    I’ve learned that the subject of cash bar vs. dry vs. open bar will ALWAYS be a huge debate.

    I learend about moissanite! I wish I had known about that when designing my e-ring, but my band will DEFINITELY have some in there.

    That things apparently vary alot from region to region!

    @MissTatas: A have to disagree with you, and take offence to that.  Personal opinions…personal opinions.  I’ll leave it at that.

    Also…discovered and developed a love for Etsy!

    Lots of inspiration for little details!

    (Great post btw)

    @soon2bhis: Didn’t mean to offend you or anyone else. Was mostly refering to all of the posts about cash bars on the WB. I am actually doing a cash bar but not a dollar dance…mostly because I just don’t like dancing.

    Perhaps I should have phrased it that I learned that even though cash bars are normal in my area, they are unheard of in other parts of the country or other social circles.

    I truly had no idea that everyone didn’t do them before WB

    hmmm i’ve learned that you’d be struck down by lightening by the wedding gods if you put registry info on your invites

    i’ve learned what a halo ring is

    I learned that I’m not the only one with a gemstone ring

    I learned that trash the dress and boudoir sessions are far more common than i knew

    I learned what the shoe game was

    Best of all I found the site where I bought my rings from being on here.
    I’ve learnt alot.

    I learned about the first look (and I secretly think I introduced the idea to my photographer…she kept saying it like “first look” like, “that’s so cute she wants to call it that”)

    I realized that I definitely wanted photos taken while I was getting ready with my girls

    Having some sort of theme to a wedding was something I had never experienced, and I definitely think it helped set my wedding apart from all of my cousins

    Yay Weddingbee!

    First Look

    That centerpieces don’t have to be bouquets

    I didnt know much about pricing and trying on wedding dresses & what should happen during a fitting.  Mood boards, never in a million years would i have thought about that for a wedding, but it makes total sense!  The pictures that people post are so helpful seeing how different things worked out for them.
