  1. Yay, thank you so much for your answers!!!
    I love Edith's second wedding dress SO much. Ahh. <3

    What an original idea to post the game answers in a blog post! - I usually have games for people to play in the comments, so no-one can see any answers! I really hope no-one will go over here to peek for the answers, because you did Very Well Indeed. ;-)

  2. Everything was spot-on perfect at our wedding. And this was due in large part to the manager and the amazing staff from New York wedding venues. Very professional staff, incredible food, spectacular view and when you felt like a guest at your wedding it cannot get any better.
