Good Luck Threads
There are no hard and fast rules but these are usually started by a date
twin or someone friendly with the bride or groom to be in the 2-3 weeks leading
up to the wedding. If you are not sure who is coming up there is a next 700
weddings list here on Hitched.
Your good luck thread shouldn’t be read until you are ready to sign off
before your wedding – if you peek early you will get spots!

The heart function is not used in Wedding Planning, but is in Baby Talk to highlight announcements.
These are held once a year (usually Nov/Dec), hosted by volunteers from the Hitched community.
Watch out for the announcements and the voting categories!
