Abbie of Beauty, On May 17, 2022 at 22:11

I’m assuming hair, since they generally wash your hair but I truly don’t know 😅🙈

Thoughts on Knot Theory Rings
Abbie of Wedding fashion, On April 24, 2022 at 22:02

Anyone have any experience with silicone rings from Knot Theory? From their promo pics they look at lot “cheaper” than the Enso rings. Also, their customer support has been terrible….

“Thigh Saver” shorts
Abbie of Wedding fashion, On April 3, 2022 at 22:05

Thoughts on Live-streaming?
Abbie of Plan a wedding, On February 26, 2022 at 16:47

My Uncle/Godfather unfortunately cannot get the time off to come to our wedding (he’s in the UK). I’m gutted and so is he. He asked whether we had considered live-streaming. We’re only 3 months out so...

Choosing your Witness
Abbie of Before the wedding, On March 23, 2022 at 15:41

Hey all! How did you select your witnesses? Did you just go with your MOH/BM? Seems like it would be tough to pick between parents.

Abbie of Plan a wedding, On March 16, 2021 at 11:54

How are people feeling about planning for a summer 2022 wedding....full steam ahead, or proceed with caution? I am reasonably certain travel within Canada will be safe by mid 2022 (looking at our...

Mothers of the Bride and Groom
Abbie of Wedding fashion, On September 24, 2021 at 22:43

Hi all! Should my mum and my fiancé’s mum look at coordinating colour wise? It’s not something that bothers me either way, but they were wondering themselves ☺️

Outdoor ceremony - no music?
Abbie of Wedding ceremony, On July 27, 2021 at 07:36

Bouquet alternatives
Abbie of Plan a wedding, On June 27, 2021 at 20:48

Anyone using alternatives to floral bouquets for themselves/bridal party? I’m torn between going for fake flowers, or doing something completely different (lanterns, perhaps? Or a single flower?)

Favours - yay or nay?
Abbie of Plan a wedding, On April 23, 2021 at 15:40
