Moving On...Literally.

Well friends, the next chapter of my life is here. 
On Tuesday, July 1, 2014, I moved on with my life by moving in with my fiance.
For the first time in over 10 years, I am not going to be living alone.
For the first time EVER, I am living with a BOY. 

As part of this new life, he and I have been working our buns off to clean, renovate, and transform his house into "our" home. Keep your eyes peeled my friends: this is going to be good.

31 Days, 31 Questions About Weddings...Help Me Please! Day 29: Your Favorite

Day 29 Question:

I'd say a lot of us have been to a wedding at some point in the last 5 years or so. Think back to that last wedding you attended: what was your favorite part?
 Did they do something that you've never seen? 
Did they find a special way to honor their loved ones that touched your heart? 
Did they have the BEST COOKIE TABLE EVER? 
I would love to hear what your favorite part about that day was!

31 Days, 31 Questions About Weddings...Help Me Please! Day 28: The Music (part 2)

Day 28 Question:

We were kicking around the idea of playing the wedding songs of our friends and family at our wedding, however, there are at least 50 couples and there's no way we have that much time (not to mention the fact that we want the music WE actually like!). 
Is there any other way we can go about including this?

31 Days, 31 Questions About Weddings...Help Me Please! Day 27: The Bar

Day 27 Question:

Oh, the bar. The ever-important bar. This is one of the main reasons we are seriously considering a "hotel wedding": we want everyone to drink and be merry, but we are very serious about making sure our guests get home safely. Our idea is to have the bar close an hour before the wedding is over and/or make the last hour cash bar. If we are at a hotel, guests who imbibe can simply walk upstairs. If we are not, we plan to hire a shuttle. Does anyone have any creative ideas or any suggestions for how we can make sure everyone has fun and is safe?

31 Days, 31 Questions About Weddings...Help Me Please! Day 26: The Money Dance

Day 26 Question:

Have you ever heard of a money dance at a wedding, or is that another "Pittsburgh" wedding tradition? Every place we've spoken to has mentioned it (as in, "we don't offer shots at the bar, except for the money dance"), making me think that this is a regular thing. 
I believe some people may call it a "shot dance"or something similar: 
it is where guests give cash for a shot 
and a dance with the bride or groom.

What do you think? Is it ok to have one? Any nifty creative ideas?

Day 25 Question:

Our ceremony will be non-denominational, however, we would like to have some people who are special to us somehow be involved in the ceremony. Any suggestions?

31 Days, 31 Questions About Weddings...Help Me Please! Day 24: Invitations

Day 24 Question:

Invitations...they seem more like little books than cards. WHERE do I start? Can I order them online, or do I have to have them done by hand? Does a "style" of invitation imply anything, or is is all personal preference?
