Where to find wedding cake toppers?
Chloe of Wanted, 8 August 2022 at 17:32

Obviously google comes up with 100000 options, so I'm hoping you guys might be able to help me whittle it down! We're having a brownie tower instead of cake so I'm keen for a topper to make it nice...

Final few spots on the guest list... how to decide?!
Chloe of Planning, 18 July 2022 at 17:18

Tearing my hair out a bit! Thought we'd cracked it but just found out the girlfriend of one of the groomsmen (who we did include on his save the date out of politeness) who never comes to any weddings...

aita only inviting one work buddy and not the other?
Chloe of Etiquette and Advice, 15 July 2022 at 14:51

Fake names for anonymity. Jenny and I started around the same time about a year ago, we became “work friends” fast, and it’s become quite clear that we’re genuine “friend friends” now - I’ve ummed...

Fmil... It gets better!!!
Chloe of Etiquette and Advice, 1 July 2022 at 17:12

Thought I'd share, as I've seen many a post on here about difficult FMILs. Those of you who have been following my FMIL dramas know what a saga it's been and how challenging and unsupportive FMIL has...

Chloe of Beauty & Wellbeing, 22 June 2022 at 14:59

Chloe of Planning, 14 June 2022 at 19:16

Initially we were not gonna go for a videographer because they are PRICEY! But I’ve recently seen a few people’s wedding videos and they do look lovely… wondering if people feel it’s worth it? Anyone...

Motivation to keep up with an exercise plan?
Chloe of Beauty & Wellbeing, 5 June 2022 at 17:21

I hate to be this person, because I really want to be body positive and firmly believe FH loves me regardless. HOWEVER, I’m not feeling my best self at the moment. I don’t need to lose multiple dress...

We've decided we'd like to have two readings but we're keen for something non-religious (as neither of us are) and something that isn't used at ever wedding ever... whenever I google "non-traditional...

Low back bra recommendations?
Chloe of Off Topic Posts, 9 May 2022 at 11:43

I've got a dress that I love but it has a cut out back so I need a bra that'll work with it (unfortunately there's no support in the front so bra-less is not an option - and the bra back strap on...

How much are your groomsmen/ushers outfits costing?
Chloe of Wedding Attire, 27 April 2022 at 15:58

FH is debating adding two groomsmen... basically he's announced that the real reason he only wanted a best man initially was because he wanted to cut costs! I think it's such a shame if he actually...

Is there a way to delete discussions on here?
Chloe of Feedback to Hitched, 27 April 2022 at 16:42

I'm starting to get paranoid that the more I show FH this forum the more likely he is to go snooping around it himself... and not only have I ranted A LOT about his mother haha, I've also posted a pic...

First look or wait until the alter?
Chloe of Planning, 9 February 2022 at 14:51

What's everyone going for and why? I'd been erring towards the traditional alter moment, but it seems first looks are gaining in popularity and feature in a lot of the "real weddings" articles out...

What do you think of these as wedding party gifts?
Chloe of Etiquette and Advice, 22 April 2022 at 11:29

My side of the wedding party (Team Bride) is split between guys and girls - I want them all to feel as important as each other. Officiant and Ushers: Three guys who are straight and not while they're...

Chloe of Beauty & Wellbeing, 31 March 2022 at 10:25

Changing your name... to double barrel or to take his name?
Chloe of Etiquette and Advice, 1 March 2022 at 16:40

Me again haha! I really love the idea of me and FH having the same last name so I'm personally dead set against just keeping my last name because I don't want us having different last names after...

Alternatives to veil?
Chloe of Wedding Attire, 9 March 2022 at 15:55

I tried on a veil when I chose my dress, but (after always thinking I’d want one) I actually wasn’t keen. FH is quite happy for me not to wear one as he thinks veils are weird haha. I’m also getting...

fmil says he shouldn't marry me
Chloe of Etiquette and Advice, 4 March 2022 at 11:04

She's just horrid She's told FH she sees "too many red flags" which are: -- We don't live in his home town but near my parents. It's unfair how often we see my parents. That's just geography (plus...

Are you paying for your bridal party’s accommodation?
Chloe of Planning, 19 February 2022 at 08:03

Our wedding’s in Cornwall, but most of our bridal party live in London - so we’re sort of treating it as a destination wedding but not entirely. I feel like this is something I need to decide sooner...
