• Is it okay if the Groom pays for his own Wedding Band if the Bride could not pay due to financial reasons?

    My best friend is getting married to a guy from a wealthy family, though as we are all still in college, most of us aren't financially stable yet. But my friend and her fiancé love each other very much and decided to get married now (Please don't judge). The guy is rich so he could pay for everything, but... show more
    My best friend is getting married to a guy from a wealthy family, though as we are all still in college, most of us aren't financially stable yet. But my friend and her fiancé love each other very much and decided to get married now (Please don't judge). The guy is rich so he could pay for everything, but my friend feels bad that she can't contribute anything financially. Both of them did not have this discussion due to its awkwardness. Does it takes away the romance when the Groom's own wedding band is purchased by himself? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • My cousin is getting married. Her mother is estranged from us. Should I expect to be left out of a wedding invitation?

    Do the mothers kind of decide who comes and who doesn't?

  • Is it rude to suggest that one of my bridesmaids stands down due to her cancer?

    Before people have a go at me, please read all of this. All my bridesmaids are my fiancé’s young nieces. They’re all under the age of 10. The one with the cancer is 7 years old.

    Before people have a go at me, please read all of this. All my bridesmaids are my fiancé’s young nieces. They’re all under the age of 10. The one with the cancer is 7 years old. She’s been under going treatment for a while now. She’s currently going through a course of chemo and she’s extremely tired and is often sick because of it. It is painful to watch her go through this because she is such a little fighter; she had sepsis just before she turned 2 and lost both her legs below the knee. I’m worried that having her as a bridesmaid in the middle of her course of chemo will be too much for her. As much as I want her to be apart of the day, I don’t want to make her worse. Both my fiancé and I think we perhaps should let her stand down from being a bridesmaid. But I think her mum will think we’re being rude if we suggest it, especially as I know how much she’s looking forward to being a ‘princess’.

  • Wedding question?

    Best answer: Under the old tradition, the groom's parents didn't have any expenses. It was the bridegroom himself who provided anything the bride's parents did not, and that was usually limited to the marriage license, officiant's fee, groomsmen's accessories, and the ring. Under the new tradition, there are... show more

  • Planning a bridal shower with a $1000 dollar budget by November 3rd advice and Tips needed!?

    A good friend of mine is getting married on the 10th of November and me as well as the other 7 bridesmaids have less than a month to plan the Bridal shower. Our budget was $800 dollars but once we learned that she (the bride) has invited 125 people we now have no venue for the bridal shower considering that none of us have big enough houses to hold 134 (including us). I did however talk to her today trying to be as nice as possible and I expressed that the guest list was too big. Her exact words "Well it would be rude to uninvite some people after I've already told everyone" so she offered to give us an extra $200 dollars. So now with a budget of $1000 we were able to find a venue that accommodates all of us but it cost $780 dollars. Which doesn't include food, decorations, music, games ect so we're not sure what to serve or what to do being as we may not have enough for everything. The wedding is a week after the bridal shower so that's why we have to do it on the 3rd and we're all just lost so any advice or how to budget the money better is needed. I wish we had more time and money to plan everything but she literally didn't tell us she wanted a bridal shower until last week since she previously stated she had no desire for one. Everyone also has stated they can't afford to put more than $100 dollars in since we just paid for our dresses that was close to $500 and also just got done reserving and paying all the cost for the bachelorette party which takes place on the 8th

  • Is it normal that a girl is so prude and blushes all the time, even if I'm her boyfriend?

    Best answer: If she's still a virgin and waiting for marriage, then she was taught well by someone in her life. She loves her self (not in a self-absorbed or negative way) and she wants to give her body and her sexuality as a gift to husband who will love her and cherish her for the rest of her life.

    Best answer: If she's still a virgin and waiting for marriage, then she was taught well by someone in her life. She loves her self (not in a self-absorbed or negative way) and she wants to give her body and her sexuality as a gift to husband who will love her and cherish her for the rest of her life. She sees sex and the human body as beautiful, and not something meaningless as the world often portrays.

    So to you, what is your plan with her? Do you want to spend the rest of your life with her? Will you choose to love her (love is a choice, not a feeling) unconditionally, through happy times and sad or bad times? If so, then just continue to respect her and wait for her. Also, maybe start talking about marriage and see where she stands on that.

They ended up going to a motel room to enjoy cable TV and pizza. Also, how is she only just realizing this? Where did she think they were Saturday evening and Sunday?

    My brother and i have both expressed that we don’t want to go to our dad’s wedding. My brother and I are 16 and 14. Mum has said that we have to go if we don’t want to, she’s not going to force us to go. However dad says we have to go as it’s on his weekend. He’s even told us to stop being selfish as with lunch it’s only 2 hours out of our weekend. Neither of us like his partner, I suppose she’s nice and all but he’s completely changed since he’s been with her and they’ve had a baby. He’s always with her and the baby, she’s got some depression thing since having the baby; so he’ll cancel coming to something we have on last minute if she’s bad. He missed my brother’s rugby game because he wanted to take her to counselling. He’ll freely tell us to stop being selfish when he’s the one being selfish. Can he really make us go?

    Best answer: The engaged couple gets to pick their attendants' outfits.

    If you are comfortable having her in a white-ish outfit and/or a bride-looking outfit, that's your choice and everyone else can stuff it.

    Nobody who attends your wedding is going to mistake her for the bride since there's no actual bride at your wedding. Even if there WAS a bride (or two) at your wedding, she would be signified by being the person who's up at the altar area marrying the groom/other bride. Not just whomever happens to be in white.

    There ARE brides out there who choose white outfits for their adult female attendants.

    You'll figure this out. Sometimes I wear silver on one hand and gold or tricolor on the other. Or just my wedding set with costume jewelry (I love turquoise). When it comes time to pick your ring, keep it simple. Get one you love and then take it from there.
