    Traditionally from my culture you have big weddings. It's a joyous occasion and something the whole family and all friends partake in. Strangely enough, my father is the one that is pushing for us to have this huge wedding. He looks at it as an occasion where he can call the entire family and everyone would gather. We live abroad and for him it would mean a great deal if he could gather everyone for my wedding. Money wise it's no problem. But for us we it's more important that we are surrounded with the people that are close to us and that we love. To be honest most of my family I don't know. I have no attachment to them. My fiancé feels the same way. We were thinking about 50 people, tops. My family is thinking around 400-500 people. I want to make my family happy but it's our day, right? I talked to my dad and he said: "I know that most of these people are strangers to you. But no one will ever care for you like your family. People only gather like this for weddings and funerals. And given the fact that your brother will probably die alone I would rather they gather for an occasion such as this. Would you please consider it?" What would you do in this situation?

  • What can we do?

    My fiancé wants to get married before he leaves for the military in 3 weeks. The problem is we have very little money and I’m freaking out because this is something we’ve been wanting for a long time now and because of money we might not get to... we live in Portland Oregon if that helps at all...

    I’m 18 year old guy and this was my first time attending at s wedding. It was nice but I felt awkward. my Mom, my older brother that’s 20 and I came together. First off, there were many ppl I did know or have seen in a while. There was one cousin that I was close who is 19 his sister that’s 24 is the one that got married. We don’t talk much anymore but anyway I greeted him and that was about it. So basically all of my cousins were talking to each other while my brother and I sitting at a table alone only talking to each other . A lot of people knew my mom I guess because that’s her family so she interacted with people there. I know they are family but we just don’t have a bond I think it’s becsuse our family did t really go to many family reunions or anything. I’m just wondering seeing should I just try to avoid anymore family events or what? it was nice but I just don’t want to feel awkward.

    Long story short, My bf and I have been having this talk since October 2017. I want somewhat a big party because I mean, I am getting married. It's a journey with your soulmate and I want to share that special day with ppl that are close to me. He wants a small gathering with only family members. However, I want a few co-workers and a few friends that have been there for me. He has friends and most of his family is in Mexico and I can understand that probably they'll be more ppl on my side than his side. I cut my guest list short to somewhat please him but that didn't work for him. He has that idea of having a simple wedding but I don't want something small. Can someone please advise me on how to handle this situation?

  • Can we do this?

    Best answer: Do a courthouse wedding and invite just your closest relatives. When he gets a break plan a big party. This isn't just for emotional reasons because as a military spouse you have a lot of perks a boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't get. Better to make it official for official reasons sooner than later.

    My best friend has a serious medical condition ... CVID... which does not allow her to commit to long-term plans. Every few months she ends up in hospital and doesn t know how long she will stay. Her condition is worsening over time. She often travels abroad for treatment but there is no cure available. My dream would be to have her fulfill a role in my wedding but at the same time I know it would be hard for her to commit and will be added stress for her on the day if she would not be able to make it. I don t want to feel left out in any way but at the same time I don t know what to do... A maid of honor or bridesmaid role is a big commitment and the witness role will need to be established from beforehand. Hard to have someone as backup. Please help.

  • How can I tell my fiance's friend's fiance she insulted me just to get a sale, without coming off as if I don't want to talk to her anymore?

    I've known this group for 11 years. Both me and my fiance have tried talking to this girl multiple times throughout. If it's not interesting topics, like celeb stuff, she walks away.

    I've known this group for 11 years. Both me and my fiance have tried talking to this girl multiple times throughout. If it's not interesting topics, like celeb stuff, she walks away. Her & her future husband are normally use to being the leader of the group. Since we've moved 5 yrs ago, the group hasn't talked as they normally would have...except ever since the couple took this seminar. They've only been talking to all us again because of the program, despite my prior attempts to reach out. She recently told my fiance how lazy he was and how he needs this $3K+ program because , and her words, "[your] clearly not enough motivation for him." I know I can't get mad because this is coming from a girl who has cheated on her spouse and obviously needs this program. They canceled their wedding a month b4 but still went on their honeymoon & their bachelorette/bachelor parties (wasn't invited or told). For her engagement party, I flew in without a "Hi", "Thanks" or "How've you been?" the whole night. We celebrated the Holidays after our engagement & wanted to celebrate with friends by giving them hand-made gifts while they locked themselves in 2 rooms among 33 people just to do blow. She made out with 2 guys, only admitting it when she was going to get upset that he had a stripper's number in his phone; That doesn't include the 3rd guy when he was studying abroad. She told me my job as a woman was to convince the man to do what is necessary & I'd be the reason for his regret.

    Hi I'd just like some opinions. I'm trying to decide if I want the traditional diamond engagement ring or if I should do something a bit more unique by going with a precious gem such as Aquamarine. Its going to be a circular stone with a halo of diamonds around the main one. I have 2 friends who decided to get an Amethyst wedding ring and a Sapphire wedding ring instead of the classic diamond. However, my concern is that if I go with the more personalized gem stone, I'll wish I had stayed traditional. Or if I go with the traditional diamond, I'll feel like its too cliche. What do you think? Thank you
