My fiancé and I have been using Amazon Prime for years now. I don't want to say it's a godsend, but it sure is convenient as hell, especially for someone who can't easily get to a store. The two-day shipping has saved my rear numerous times with last-minute gifts, school supplies, and household essentials.

The "Non-Traditional" Traditional Bride

I got engaged about six months ago (exactly six months as of yesterday, but who's counting?). Our wedding is still eighteen months away, so we're still in the stage where planning feels fun and not panic-attack-inducing.
