Thank you all for the wedding advice March 6, 2018 1:43 PM   Subscribe

I'm getting married on Saturday. While it would have happened without help from Metafilter, the help I've gotten in my Ask questions has made my life a lot easier. This is a big thank you to everyone who helped in those questions.

The questions:
About engagement rings.
About finding a photographer
About finding a reading
Honeymoon help

Special shoutout to amtho for "Since this is an act of love and not war, the element of surprise is not necessarily an advantage." We ended up with a vintage ring I never would have picked in a million years. (Thanks also to LobsterMitten for assuring me that this wouldn't be considered spam.)

Thanks to everyone who helped keep me a little saner during the run up to this. Shoot me memail if you're interested and I'll send you picture links when they're ready.

Congratulations and may you have many very happy years together!

A word of reassurance, from the perspective of just shy of 20-years-married: being married is ever so much better than getting married.

Congratulations!

Has anyone collected the MeFi wedding wisdom into a Wiki page or something?

Congratulations, Hactar!

Has anyone collected the MeFi wedding wisdom into a Wiki page or something?

There's some stuff about wedding gifts in Frequently Asked, a list of Mefite Officiants, wedding poetry suggestions in ReadMe and a little bit in WearMe about wedding guest apparel, but no feature page. You could start one!

Since this is an act of love and not war, the element of surprise is not necessarily an advantage.

God, this is so good.

Also best wishes and congratulations.
