Wear my wedding ring and a ring my parents

Posted By: me on 2005-12-29
In Reply to: Do you wear rings or other jewellery while you transcribe? - mt

gave me for my 6th Christmas (I've had it resized).   No other jewelry.  Rarely I'll wear small earrings, but usually find that with my earphones on it feels like the posts of the earrings are digging in.

No, but I do have a toe ring. :)
I get it under my ring too!

Don't exactly know what you are looking for...perhaps a cracker or biscuit, but try this link. Lots of recipes to browse.

They ring an item up, put it in a bag
that is separate from the rest of the stuff, or accidentally put it on a ledge below the counter. When you get home, the item is not there.

You also have to watch Walmart prices. The advertised ale price on the shelf is frequently not the price that rings up on the register when you check out. They will change it for you (but not everyone else) if you call it to their attention.
I keep a 3-ring binder for each MD...sm

When I get a private account, I set up a small 3-ring binder with the specifics and also their samples that they give me.  I also keep the statements there until the month is completely done and then I do a monthly billing only.  Once they pay, that stuff gets transferred over every few months into a 10x13 envelope and stashed towards the following year when I do taxes....it is all part of the records that I keep should I ever get audited.  I also try to keep the private MDs pretty much the same way, unless they have account specifics besides their samples, as much as I am able to.

The phone in my bedroom does not have the ring on
my hubby with his line of work has different sleeping hours than me so the phone does not ring so he wont be bothered. Other phones in the house have the ringers on. That solves my problem.

Period. If i hear the machine message saying emergency, i will grab it; otherwise they can wait until I am done!

I need ideas for how to get kids to not ring the doorbell tonight after....sm

the light is off on the porch and it's getting late, i.e. after 9 p.m.   It amazes me the # of kids .... and adults... who don't use good common sense about trick-or-treating and ignore the usual "lights on means ok to knock/ring, lights off means go away/no goodies" rules that have been around for decades. 

I'm thinking about turning on the lawn sprinkler close to the front door - but some idiots would probably just run through it.

In the past I've put the dog out on her tie-out in the front yard and that scares some away, but the people that my dog knows get by her by just petting her because she knows them.

What to wear to a wedding-sm

I just can't decide.  It's an evening wedding, outside in a park.  Apparently the bride is going to be barefoot and the groomsmen are in khaki pants.  That's about all I know.

Could I wear slacks and a casual top? Or go with my original plan to wear a dress and sandals?  Or does it matter at all?  Lol.

Chicken and dumplings. Just about to put the dumplings in and ring the dinner bell!

wedding, to go or not go - sm

I have been invited to my 2nd cousins wedding.  I really don't want to go because I do not know him or the bride.  However, that side of the family is apparently having a get-together of the first cousins around the same time and I had planned on going to that.  Now I feel I "should" go to both or neither one.  What would you do?  Thanks for the help.

Yea, he does. Met him at the wedding
walked in I thought I would fall over There were other stars there but all I saw was him.  Did meet him and he was nice and funny.
we had fountains at our wedding

We just had 2 chocolate fountains at our wedding- they were amazing! The fountains came with lots of goodies to dip them in. They used to cost about $5 a person but now they have significantly gone up in price- i think they are at $12 pp now.

In a way, as far as amount of food, it seems you get your money's worth but on the other hand, since everyone has already had their meal & there is the wedding cake for dessert, you end up having a lot of food left over in the end so in some ways, it can be a waste of food.

I think it also depends on who you rent it from as far as pricing and what comes with it. At our wedding, the company that provided the fountains took care of setting them up & running the fountains.


Has anyone seen The Wedding Crashers. If so what do you think?
Need to go to the movies and looking for something good.
Black at wedding
Black is stylish and I love it. I would suggest not wearing black stockings, etc. Do you have any bright colors you could add such as a cloth rose (very stylish)or some bright jewelry to offset the black. Try a thrift store for a bright bag or shoes. I just did that and found a pretty pink bag with black trim for a couple of dollars. That should offset the black. Just try not to go "totally black" but if you have to, so be it. Just wear a "smile" and have a great time! Life is temporary, enjoy it.
the last wedding I went to was in the evening and...sm

most of the guests were wearing black.  Of course, it was elegant dresses, with sequins and sparkles.  It actually made the pictures turn out wonderful, very classy looking. Black can be fun, if you dress it up. If you are wearing say a black skirt, pair it with a flashy top, sequins, etc, if the wedding is at night.  As for daytime, I think I'd steer clear of black and opt for something bright or neutral.  Of course, this is JMHO, of course.  Anyhow, the most important thing is to be there to support the new couple and, most of all, have fun! Best wishes to the bride and groom!


According to the wedding channel..
(from the site):
It is now acceptable for female guests to wear black to weddings, especially in the late afternoon and evening. Black choices, however, should be more ornate than reserved, to give off an air of celebration rather than mourning. Sometimes, adding a little color (vibrant flower pins and scarves work wonderfully for weddings) rounds off the somber look well.

I attended a wedding where even
It was absolutely beautiful! White bride's dress, black tuxedos with red roses, black bridesmaid's dressing with them carrying a red rose, and the bride's huge bouquet of red roses. It was very classy!
hey, sounds just like the wedding I went to...sm
Hummm, was it in November? In Georgia? Wow, that would be weird, wouldn't it?
Wedding attire
You could pick up one of the Bride magazines and see dozens of options for wedding attire. According to tradition, the veil symbolizes virginity, while a white dress symbolizes a first wedding. Neither is required for a bride on her wedding day. Someone where I work wore a pink wedding dress despite it being her first marriage. There really are no rules these days, and most wedding directors are just hoping to convince brides to cover all tattoos for their big day!
Wedding Cake

Could anyone direct to me some good web sites with wedding cake pictures?  I have found a few, but it seems they are all "cookie cutter" and I am looking for something original, but not crazy.  Am having a smaller wedding (under 100), outdoor.  Any links anyone could provide, I would be majorly appreciative!  (I have cake appointments next week and need to provide some ideas for them.)

wedding announcement
I just went thru this last year with my daughter...I think it would be appropriate to add where the bride is registered...
wedding announcements

Really, no, girls, this is very tacky, either in an announcement or in an invitation.  Please, let's stick to traditional etiquette. 

Wedding gift
If you already have two households of "stuff" you obviously don't "need" the money either, especially since you are going to have a yard sale. Two terms come to my mind - trailer trash and greed - if the shoe fits - put one of them on and leave me off your guest list. Personally, I would make a donation to the children's home, as I no longer send flowers to a funeral when a charity is listed. I send money to the charity and the family receives a card saying that a donation has been made in the memory of the deceased person. Since you don't seem to mind asking your guests for money - may I ask your age and the age of your fiance? Just trying to put this in perspective
wedding attire sm
Dress any way you please, I hate it when people say I'm "overdressed". I love to dress up, just be sure your shoes are comfortable and like the others said, outside can get very cold, so bring a nice sweater, shawl or whatever. Just have fun!!! However, sounds like these people could care less what you wear, they sound like they have their own minds, good for them!
Wedding Reception

I was married last month.  I had the reception right next to where the wedding took place.  I know this isn't always possible, but I wanted it to be as easy as possible for my guests.  They just walked right on over to the reception.  I also booked rooms at a hotel right next to that, so they could just walk over to the wedding and then walk back to the hotel after the reception.

I alloted about 30 to 45 minutes for the pictures after the ceremony.  It only took about 30 minutes....but I arranged for the caterer to have a punch fountain and servers to pass around a few little nibbles, while the guests waited for us to arrive.  I cannot imagine leaving them there for a long period of time, especially with nothing to eat.  The bar was also open for them (host paid for beer and wine - they had to pay for any hard liquor or mixed drinks - I thought that was fair).  Anyway....it all worked out very well.  I think it is very rude to keep guests waiting.  It sounds like just poor planning and no thought given to the guests.

wedding gift
I need some ideas please.  I have a very close friend who is getting married for the third time, and this will be the second marriage for her fiance.  Of course, they have everything they need, and probably more.  But I don't want to go to her wedding empty-handed.  I'd like to get her something nice, even if just a little something, so does anyone have any ideas?  Thanks very much.
wedding gift
These are all such outstanding gift ideas, and I appreciate each and every suggestion!  Thank you so much! 
My dad had one at his wedding, but the caterer's did all that, so I have no idea - sm
It did not look complicated though and the kids absolutely loved in.  I think my one daughter alone ate about 30 strawberries (dipped in chocolate of course).
19 on wedding day, still married 16 years later.

One gift per wedding per spouse.

You do not have to buy a gift for this and that and the other.  ONE GIFT.  No more.  Oh, and you have a full year from the official date of the wedding to get them something.

Shoot, I cut my brother off after his third wedding (to three different women).  I'm not buying him any more wedding presents ever.  LOL  Especially, now that he's on his third divorce.

If they are like wedding announcements, you do it AFTER the event - sm
if you are inviting people to attend then I would think 3-4 weeks prior to the event.
Flamingo and wedding in Vegas
My daughter got married at the Flamingo last summer. It was very nice...no complaints.
Our wedding was small, just family, and we got
married just 5 months after we met, but the last couple of days were nerve wracking.  I took Valium. 
Off the subject - wedding reception -sm
So the wedding season is upon us.  I went to a wedding this weekend.  It was an afternoon wedding with reception "immediately following" but it turned out the reception did not start for 1-1/2 hours after the ceremony ended.  I thought it was a bit rude to keep the guests waiting without even as much as a glass of water on the table and no announcement about where the bride/groom, bridal party was.  The reception hall was only a few miles away.  Was it just me, or was this a long time in between the wedding and the reception?
It depends on the wedding, venue, time of day

But I've worn black to weddings in the past and have seen others do it as well. Black has an elegant appeal that looks great for any special occasion.
Wow. My wedding day was such a blur that I couldn't even remember who
was there, let alone what anybody wore.  A week after the wedding, someone made a comment to me about something that happened.  I didn't even know they had come to the wedding.
Quick wedding poll time...
Did anyone out there wear a wedding dress without a veil?  I'm not wild about any of the veils I've seen and think one might annoy me rubbing against my shoulders, therefore I am considering not buying one to go with the dress.  The dress is a full length puffy styled one.    Will I be creating a new fashion statement if I don't wear one?  (smile). 
Wedding announcement etiquette question...


My fiance and I are thinking about including a separate note in our wedding announcements/invitations telling people where we're registered at or a charity they could make donations to in our honor so that we don't have to field a cazillion phone calls asking this.  We're thinking about wording it something like "your kind thoughts and presence if possible is your gift to us.  For those who'd like to send an additional gift we request that a donation be made to *** charity.  We are also registered at ***.

Would you do this to make it easy for people or would you consider it tacky?  Personally I'd like it if people sent that when they sent me invitations to help make it easy to know what they want for a gift. 

Votes please!

Question about wedding gift requests...sm
My fiance will be merging 2 homes into 1 and the last thing we need are material things as wedding gifts as we'll be yard selling and giving away the equivalent of a household of goods as it is, with many items being donated to a local women's shelter to help these ladies set up a home now that they're away from their abusers.   I'm not interested in collecting china or silver and there's really nothing we need.   We've decided on asking people to give donations to a local children's home in our honor instead of wedding gifts, but other than that how do you recommend that we politely tell people that we don't want material things and if they don't want to donate to the children's home that we'd be happy to accept a gift card or money?   I looked on websites such as "the knot" and while in one place they say it's tacky to ask for money, in their registry they have an option for people to sign up to buy American Express gift cheques which is basically the same thing (love the double standard) with the exception of course being that these have to be bought through them with a $50 minimum (ouch!) and $5 service fee.   Thanks for your input!
Prior wedding inquiry update...sm

 Previously I had posted on this board  as my fiance and I were trying to figure out how to handle letting people know that we don't want any wedding gifts (we each have a house and don't need material things as we're giving away tons of stuff with merging the home) but had chosen a charity for anyone who would like to make a donation in our honor.

 My maid of honor and a couple of friends decided to host a party for us and on the invitations put on there that in lieu of gifts that we were requesting donations to a children's charity that we chose because of the reputation of spending the money wisely  and being well known for its work.  

This has gone over very well with the invitees.  I've had many of them call and e-mail me or my fiance saying that they thought this was a wonderful way for us to help others less fortunate and yet celebrate our upcoming marriage.   The charity  agreed prior to our announcement to not pester these people afterwards with mailings and is simply sending those that send a donation a thank you card, and then they're sending me a weekly list showing who made a donation and their address, but not the dollar amount as I don't care to know what they gave. 

So... for future brides that don't want gifts  I suggest doing what we did - it's a win for the charity and lets the family/friends that wanted to do something special do this in a way that we chose (and we aren't stuck with household items we don't want or need!)

Today would have been my 19th wedding anniversary....
But I divorced him 17 years ago! LOL!
