What does a covid wedding look like?
Emma, On February 26, 2021 at 13:10

While we are waiting to see if we can even get married in September, part of me is averse to the idea of a socially distanced, masked event. For our 40-person wedding, will we even be allowed to hug...

Who are you walking down the aisle with?

Traditionally, a bride is walked down the aisle by her father, however, many couples opt for alternative options! Will another family member accompany you down the aisle? Would you rather go it solo?...

Sinéad, On November 25, 2019 at 09:05

Photography budget
Eunice, On November 25, 2019 at 17:52

Husband only wants to spend max of $1000 for photos. I feel like he is underestimating everything about wedding. Any thoughts of how much the average cost is? Or is $1000 doable?
