ive noticed that pretty much everyone in this community is pretty young (including me, im only 19!) and im sure yall have had to field the endless "But your SO young!! [insert various reasons for waiting to get married]" comments... and with our big days comming up... i was wondering if any of you have any tips on shooting the naysayers down :)
ive pretty much been saying that yes, i am young, but that i know in every way that this man is the one for me. and then they scoff... its really rude and pretty assumptive on their parts...
but yeah.... its almost may!! *squee!!!!*

what's in your programs?

posted by: lynneangel in may2007weddings

emily and i are finishing up our programs for our wedding.  we're looking to keep it short--one page, front and back.  the front side, right now, has our wedding graphic, our names, the time and location, a thank you list (parents, bridesmaids, oversight committee=officients, etc).  the back has a full-page explanation of quaker weddings, along with a reminder to turn off your cell phones and that there is no photography during a quaker wedding.

anything essential we are missing?  not all ceremony guests are coming to the reception (we're inviting our congregation to the ceremony but not the reception) , so reception directions will be on a different sheet. 

if folks want, we'll post photos when we're done...but they aren't anything fancy, just 1 page printed up!

Vendor review for invitations.

We ordered our invitations from “Invitations by Dawn” and they were fabulous. They responded quickly to my emails asking questions before the order and were very helpful. We placed our order on-line on the morning of Feb 15th and we received it last night Feb 21st. So 5 business days (if you count Saturday as a business day) from order to receipt. I certainly can’t argue with that. The invitations and enclosures were exactly what we had pictured. It all arrived very well packaged and organized.

I can’t wait to send them out. We chose our own quote for the inside of the invitation and our own wording for both the reception card and the RSVP and it all turned out great!

So, if you are looking for a place to order invitations, I highly recommend Invitations by Dawn. Thank you to those of you here who posted about them before me. I appreciate the recommendation and I hope mine helps other people as well.

I'll be leaving the community due to the fact that my wedding is now off.

Its difficult to explain, but I would call it irreconcilable differences.

liability insurance

Sep. 19th, 2006 | 11:55 am
posted by: monotonia in may2007weddings

so my wedding's very likely going to be at a private residence, and the owner has requested that my guests sign liability releases. I totally understand why they want this, but i'm not sure the most appropriate way to include this ...with the invitation? sigh. it's sort of awkward. I wonder if an alternative would be for me to get some sort of special event insurance for the day?
