Wedding Wishes
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,

Wedding planning made easy
I have a few books that brides-to-be would find very helpful.

Priceless Weddings for under $5,000 by Kathleen Kennedy. List price is $14.00, I'm asking $10.00
The everything Weddings on a Budget Book by Barbara Cameron. List price is $9.95, I'm asking $7.00
Instant Weddings: From "Will You?" to "I Do!" in Four Months or Less by Jennifer L. Shawne. List price is $14.95, I'm asking $10.00
The Giftionary: An A-Z Guide for Solving Your Gift-Giving Dilemmas... Forever! by Robyn Freedman Spizman. List price is $12.95, I'm asking $8.00

Each of these books is in excellent condition with no tearing, stains, or dog-eared pages.
I'll ship these at $3.00 each, but will combine shipping for a lower rate if you buy more than one.
I will accept PayPal only unless you are local and willing to pick up, in which case shipping would not apply.

Thank you for looking!


ETA: I'm in Kingsport, TN. :)

Still looking for a dress for anything?
Newport News is having a great clearance sale on a lot of their dresses. Hopefully someone will find exactly what they need. :)

For California brides and grooms
I stumbled upon Here Comes The Guide while searching for other things. We're getting married in Tennessee, but I thought it could be useful for others. :)

Book review
I stumbled upon the book Instant Weddings, by Jennifer L. Shawne, and I have to highly recommend it to everyone here. It's geared toward those with 4 months or less to plan their wedding, but I found that the advice contained within it really applies to everyone across the board.

A few highlights:

In the first chapter she recommends that each member of the couple compile a seperate list of must haves, would like to haves, and absolutely do not want to haves, and that they then get together with their lists to figure out what are the truly important elements for their wedding.

In other chapters she recommends unique, often unthought of, places to get what's needed for the wedding.

A few of my favorite reception ideas she mentions are snow cones topped with vanilla vodka for a white/ winter themed wedding, and a picnic style reception, which we're now thinking of incorporating into our plans.

The book was published in 2004, and the list price is $14.95, but I found it at the Dollar Tree for a buck, so check there first. :)

Cross-posted like mad; sorry if you see this more than twice.

First dance song
We were going to dance to Tears I Cried by Siam Shade, but David found Wedding Song by Tracy Chapman so we decided to switch. =D

They're both really pretty, but with Tracy Chapman everyone will at least understand the lyrics.

Now to find a song for the family to dance to and/or come in to.

First post
Hello, this is your friendly neighborhood moderator with an introduction.

I am 34, a biomom of 3 beautiful children, and engaged to a wonderful partner who has 2 beautiful children. This will make each of us bonusparents. :)

We are planning a very family-oriented wedding. We have designed our invitations using photos of each individual family, we are serving 2 separate buffets at the reception. (One for the grown ups and one for the kids.) Each of our children will play a key role in the ceremony. We will each be reciting vows and giving gifts to each other's children. Instead of a unity candle we're having a family sand ceremony. And each of the kids will get to give out 5 invitations of their own. I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of right now.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this space and that everyone here is able to share and get lots of ideas from each other.
