Just Married! You return from your honeymoon you walk into your house - full of bliss and a little tired from traveling. And then. You see it. It's the pile.
The pile of wedding gifts, extra ceremony programs, candles, cards, candle holders, a card box....
It's all of your cherished wedding things that now in a heaping pile in your living room.
Well, what are you going to do with all that stuff? Some of it you'll keep (the gifts!) and some of it you want to pass along to another bride (or just get out of your living room).
There are a number of places to post your items online.

You're having a party and you're making your shopping list. You have everything for the menu figured out and now it's on to the bar. You don't want to over buy and you certainly don't want to under buy - how do you figure out how much wine, beer, and liquor to buy?
A note of caution - don't use this calculator for your wedding or other large parties. Ask your caterer or bartender for advice.

Selecting ceremony music can be a difficult process. It's usually not music that most of us are all that familiar with and decisions are usually based on what we've seen at past weddings.
MyWeddingMusic.com has samples of each piece and you can purchase the songs to hear them in their entirety for just 99 cents. They even have them broken down by suggested places within the ceremony - processional, recessional, preludes, etc. You can even download sheet music for your musicians!

You decided what kind of guest book you want and now it's time to put it to you. It's super important to you and you can't wait to read all of those little messages when you get home from the honeymoon.
Now: Make It Work (thank you Tim Gunn!)
1. Placement: Position the guest book near the bar guests will use during the reception. It can also be placed near the bar at the cocktail hour, but remember that's one hour of time for all of your guests and they will be busy chatting during that time. For the best results have it available at both the cocktail hour and the reception. Placement near the bar is key. It's where people congregate and wait in line for a bit so they'll have plenty of time to write you a special note.
2. Supplies: Have plenty of pens, paper, and any other supplies needed to create your guest book. Make sure the pens are acid free and that they have a pretty cup to sit in.
3. Height: Use a high-top (high boy, elbow) cocktail table with a pretty linen. The higher table will ensure that guests don't have to bend over to write. That means their backs won't hurt and they'll spend more time with you on the dance floor. The small size of the table (30 or 36 inches) will provide the perfect amount of space.
