    My favorite tradition is hanging the advent calendar my grandmother made me when I was little. I’m 27 and I still use it!

    As for the website, I love the DIY ideas. It would be great if you could post more of those!

  • Courtney on December 17, 2012 @ 8:32 am

    Christmas Eve at grandmas. More real wedding stories and inspiration!

  • Julie Zellman on December 17, 2012 @ 8:56 am

    1. My family celebrates Hanukkah and our favorite holiday tradition is making latkes with my grandmother! It’s a huge group effort (all of the grandkids help) but man, they are delicious!
    2. I’d love to read about more cost-saving alternatives for weddings. Planning a wedding is expensive, so any help on saving money is much appreciated!

    On Christmas Eve, my Dad and I have daddy-daughter day.

    I like the site and the giveaways. Thank you.

  • Julie on December 17, 2012 @ 9:11 am

    I love the cookie exchanges and getting Christmas cards in the mail

  • Stephanie on December 17, 2012 @ 9:31 am

    I love white elephant gift exchange, Christmas Eve with my family, and Christmas breakfast at my mom’s… this year will be my fiance’s first Christmas with my family and next Christmas I will have his last name :-)

  • Liz on December 17, 2012 @ 9:43 am

    1. I love driving around on Christmas Eve to see all the houses lit up.
    2. I use the resources category the most, and I never look at the real weddings category.

  • Kristin McGuire on December 17, 2012 @ 10:10 am

    1. We watch the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol called “Scrooge” every Christmas Eve. Most of us fall asleep before the end.

    2. I like seeing photos from other people’s engagements/weddings. Gives me ideas! I also love to see the color combo examples.

  • Stephanie R. on December 17, 2012 @ 10:25 am

    1. As a kid I loved driving around our neighborhood looking at the Christmas lights and signing holiday tunes.

  • Kelly S on December 17, 2012 @ 12:51 pm

    1. I love everything about Christmas. My mom always made it so special when I was a little girl and we still continue that feeling today. It is great, now that we are all older, to come together at my moms and be with my brothers. We all live far apart and Christmas helps bring us back together and remember how lucky we’ve been throughout the years. Merry Christmas Everyone!
    2. Truly Engaging is great. I love how there is something for everyone. No matter what you are looking for you can find something to help you out. The real advice makes a big difference when you actually start planning your own wedding!

  • Jenn G. on December 17, 2012 @ 1:21 pm

    1) I’m 32 and I still spend the night Christmas Eve at my parents’ house (this year, my fiance is joining me). Cocktails and finger food with family and friends before bedtime, and watching my nephew open presents Christmas morning…those are my favorites.
    2) Loving the giveaways! Anything that will pinch my wallet a little less is a huge help! Thanks!

  • Tiffany Bruvarny on December 17, 2012 @ 1:26 pm

    Going out for Chinese food Christmas Eve with my future in laws and brother in laws and spending Christmas Day doing dinner and gifts with my side of the family (all 21 of us)
    I like seeing photos from other people’s engagements/weddings. Gives me so many new ideas! Thank you!

  • shyda on December 17, 2012 @ 1:30 pm

    1. I loved getting our xmas tree on my mom’s bday– which also happens to be Santa’s bday (if you’re Dutch like we are and celebrate it)! We also paint a new xmas ornament every year! My fiance and I painted our first one together this year!
    2) More giveaways and more discussion on marraige, not just the wedding?

  • Lori on December 17, 2012 @ 2:26 pm

  • Katrina House on December 17, 2012 @ 7:15 pm

    I love Christmas Eve!!! We have a “traditional” Swedish meal and then go to church. There is just something so special about the family time, hymns and carols before all the presents and craziness of Christmas day!

    I’d like to see more DIY ideas with directions and variations! It’s nice to have inspiration but I’d like to see the “how to” as well.

  • Ashley Lopez on December 18, 2012 @ 12:01 am

    I love the dirty santa. We bring a gift to add to the pile and can steal from each other. Its lots of fun to see who ultimately ends up with what gift.

    I love the website as a whole. Maybe adding more real stories of extraordinary stories of very day brides.
