Wedding Wishes [12 Jan 2011|11:00pm]

Hi there,

My name is El, I'm 27 and a bride-to-be. I'm also a web developer and in the process of setting up a wedding community website called "Wedding Wishes" at http://www.weddingwishes.co

I'm looking to get the ball rolling and encourage some communication on the forums before I actually launch the site, and as such, I'd love to invite the community to join for free and even receive a couple of freebies I picked up while doing some marketing for work. There's a fantastic ebook worth $40 that you can download for free that claims to save you thousands. Not sure how accurate that is in practice, but I've read it and it is actually really good... and really very free!

Anyway, I'd love to see all of you over at Wedding Wishes to claim your membership and free goodies. Feel free to add my personal journal or message me if you have any questions or need a hand.

I apologise if some of you got caught in a cross-post or if this isn't an appropriate intro. Mods - please delete this message if you feel it lacks value to the community.

Wonderful to meet you all,

Hey everyone! This is kinda bittersweet, but I was looking at my LJ info page and realized that i'm in a couple wedding planning type communities that i probably don't belong to. i guess it's about time that i leave these communities, since we've been married almost a year now..  i sincerely wish the best for all of you! don't hesitate to keep in touch or friend me on my personal journal.... <3

new community [17 Oct 2006|02:20pm]

I don't know how many of you are step-parents or are about to be, but I decided to start a support group for step-parents, current or soon to be. I will become a step parent on Oct. 21, this saturday, and I could not be more excited! Here's the link


Please join!! I would love to have a site for those of us in this situation to build support and get advice. It's not always an easy job, but I would not have it any other way. Thanks!

Do you like to cook? [14 Sep 2006|10:13pm]

hey. I thought this might be something that us newly married and soon to be married people would enjoy!!

i'm doing this recipe tree thing where you get a letter and you send your favorite recipe to the person who's address is on the back of the letter, and then you send the letter to 8 people and you end up getting 64 recipes in the mail.. it's really fun.

anyway, i'm sending my letters out tomorrow, and it's more fun to get recipes from people all around, so i thought i'd see if any of you would be interested. if you want to join, send me a message and i'll include you!

Las Vegas [22 Jun 2006|03:01pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

My fiancee and I have decided to forgo the traditional and have a Las Vegas wedding complete with Elvis:) Has anyone else thought about this? If so where are you planning on having yours? I want to make plans over the internet and I do not want to get scammed, not saying I will, but yeah I want to make sure. Also if you've known anyone who got married in Vegas how was the cermony? I'm just wondering, I'm dead-set on doing this, just wanted to hear about other peoples experiences and find a reputable place:) Thanks:)

I know this isnt the proper way to do this, but My friend and I are the wedding photographers for her young company, Carsten Photographic. We are experiencing much success in our area and are hoping to do some traveling to offer our Wedding photography services to more loving couples.
Unfortunatly our website is temporarily unavailable, anyone interested in our services, with packages starting around $500, should email us at CarstenPhotographic@yahoo.com, and we can provide examples of our work.
Those of you who can help us with this expansion will be able to negotiate a special package. We would love to talk to the soon-to-be couple and set up something just for you. Thanks and Congratulations!!

Can anyone help me out with cool/unique ideas for bridesmaids/groomsmen's gifts? I'm at a loss, really. I'm a college student, so I'm on a tight budget, but i really want to do something especially nice for these people that mean so much to me. I have a couple little things that i've already picked up, but i feel like it's really not enough. Any help? Thanks!

Engagement Party [04 Apr 2006|11:47pm]

Hello everyone,
So, I have a few questions about an engagement party. What is the purpose of it? WHO attends it? Who gets invited to it? Can you have more than one? (for instance, in different cities).

My wedding is in October, and my future in-laws want to have an engagement party (here in our city) in early June. So, now I'm wondering if I should arrange something in the city where my family/friends (some are involved in my wedding) reside?

I'm thoroughly confused. Can you all help me??

questions about invitations and save the date cards [17 Feb 2006|11:54am]

so ladies...I've got a question. Actually I guess it's a few questions.
My wedding is in October this year. So what I'm wondering is: 1) When should I send out my invitations? (I was thinking probably June or July-am I right on that?) 2) Do I have to send save the date cards to people? (and if we do, how far ahead should they be sent?) We've pretty much contacted people via email and phone and in person to let them know about our wedding date.

Some ideas for my junior bridesmaid [08 Feb 2006|12:00am]

My oldest neice, Emma is my jr. bridesmaid. She'll be 11 in July (my wedding is in October). Now, I'm not sure if I should put her in the EXACT same dress as my attendants, Susan and Bev, or if hers should be a bit different.

This is the
Bridesmaid dressCollapse )

My Future MIL found these dresses online:

ok, i have this idea for my wedding dress...see, the idea of spending hundreds of dollars on a dress that i'm going to wear one day makes me queasy...i'm too frugal!! so i had this idea of wearing like, a white skirt (maybe a peasant skirt or a big billowy skirt) and a bodice type top, almost like a corset, also in white or something close to white. i LOVE this idea because i can wear both peices later on with other clothes and it will look normal, and also i think it will look very nice. i'm a big hippy at heart, so i think this will really match my personality. now, i know that i can wear whatever i want on my wedding day, but i want input on my big idea! i want to know if it sounds silly or if it is really a decent idea. also i need to know where i can find a white bodice/corset top!!

also...for my bridesmaids...a few years ago my mom bought me a vogue because she liked the cover outfit, it was big prom-dress looking skirts with a plain white tank top. i was thinking...for my bridesmaids they could wear a skirt in the color of their choice and style of their choice (as long as it is below the knees) and then a white tank top like that. i think it would look very cute, and very fun. what do you guys think??

ok, this is giraffemoo's wedding journal. i joined up all my communities with my wedding journal that i made a month or so ago. i have one quick question and then another not so quick question. the quick one is this...for my wedding day, glasses or contacts? i normally wear glasses and i have been scince i was 13, but i was thinking...do i want to shell out the extra bucks for contacts on my big day? or will it look like i'm...i don't know, not normal looking because i don't have my glasses? here is a link to my myspace profile, it has pictures of me up there with glasses, and i think a few without (mind you, they're old pics but they're me without glasses!) http://www.myspace.com/giraffemoo  
my second question...i made this list on this journal, it's a GRAND list of EVERYTHING i'll need, from my veil to the dress, to my garter belt and location and everything. i made it so i know what i need and what i've got...but i feel like there is stuff missing. like i'll be like "wait a minute, i forgot this!!" so i want you guys to look at it and tell me what i'm missing!! it's on my personal journal under this name. it's public too :)

cross posted to a bunch of wedding communities :)
