Wedding Guests Dos and Don’ts

Having aggregately attended over 80 weddings in the last 10 years, you can say that jigg and I know a thing or two about being good wedding guests. Below is our list…let us know if we missed anything! Dress Code (Ladies Only) Do NOT wear white or off-white . This includes ivory, cream, ecru or anything […]

Wedding Drinking Game

Happy Three Year Anniversary!

In the hierarchy of wedding gifting, I noticed that many gifters rank cash at the bottom of the sincerity and thoughtfulness […]
