Moissanite. So pretty, and I want some.

I was not alone and crazy during my “waiting” stage. Wish I’d found this board then.

People care much less about veil-length etiquette than I thought. If I’d known, I would’ve gotten a longer one. 

Maggie Sottero is a big deal.

Dyed crinolines!

@Meowkers: Haha, yes there is. Traditionally, the length of your veil corresponds with the formality and time of day of your wedding. Cathedral is reserved for the most formal. I wanted one, but with a 1:30 wedding, I would’ve felt silly. Not that you have to follow the etiquette! I just like to.

@Miss Sorbet: DIAMOND CANDLES! I told so many people and they all thought it was the best idea…I’m sure WB has brought them some business!

Also, pretty much every idea I got for my wedding originated from the Bee. It taught me how to wedding plan! People were impressed I planned it on my own, but little did they know I had a whole hive of advisors πŸ™‚

-That seating charts are commonplace… I thought they were just for fancy schmancy affairs!

– that my DIY rustic/down home wedding is actually NOT that original or unique ( although most of my wedding guests will think I am super creative and not know where I got it all… the Bee!)

– It has expanded my views on what I like as far as wedding dresses/ring/accessories SO much… it is one thing to like something in a magazine, but putting a person in it ad their touch makes me go , ” I never knew I liked that!”

– getting peoples opinions on things my Fiance would just shrug his shoulders at and say ” looks good”

– good tips on things like parenting( not a parent), home ownership ( I rent an apt), pet stories ( we don’t even have a fish)… and my new fav beauty secret.. Bag Balm!

Moissanite! I have never heard of it before joining, and I was originally looking into white sapphire, but I like Moissy better for some reason.

@sweetpea87: ah ok I guess that makes sense.  I never knew about this though.  I wore a cathedral length veil for my wedding. It just so happens that it was a black tie, evening affair.

@sweetpea87: I didn’t know that, either! I am wearing a cathedral veil for my evening wedding… but it isn’t black tie.. I just liked it! I am wearing a flower on the side for the reception
