• 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

  • When you’re at a wedding, do you ever feel like hugging the groom?

    Everything seems to be about the bride, even though it’s both of their day. The bride gets a mini parade walking down the aisle while the groom just stands there, everyone’s talking about her dress and where it came from etc., her father usually makes a speech while neither of the groom’s parents do. Do you ever... show more

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

    So, this happened: we slept together. First time in the same bed, no sex, because she's virgin and I do respect her. We talked, stayed together, talked about lots of things, and she fell asleep next to me, with her hand in my hand and her leg between mine. When she woke up she stretched a bit and one of the... show more
    So, this happened: we slept together. First time in the same bed, no sex, because she's virgin and I do respect her. We talked, stayed together, talked about lots of things, and she fell asleep next to me, with her hand in my hand and her leg between mine. When she woke up she stretched a bit and one of the underwears straps fell off so saw her... nipple. Needless to say that I wanted to kiss her so bad there but I couldn't because she's a bit difficult for these things and when she realized it she turned as red as a tomato and readjusted the strap and covered herself in shame with the blanket til the chin. She was strange and taciturn the whole day. Suddenly while we were talking about another topic she told me 'you know, you are the one who has ever seen me... (she meant naked). Neither my mom has ever seen me since I was a teenager'. I was like: well thats normal I'm your boyfriend it should be obvious that I am the one to see you naked. But she was saying like it was such a bid deal. Anyway, why is she like this, I understand shy, but come on it's me! We've been through a lot. When I say a lot I meam she ran away from her abusive aunt's home in the middle of the night and stayed at my place. She got beaten up for me from her aunt. I defendes her. We are living together now. She was sick, I took care of her. I was always there for her and she makes a big deal about a nipple.

  • 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’.

  • My brother is not my blood brother. Do I need to have him in my wedding still?

    He was adopted as a newborn. His bio-mother is my Mom's cousin. I am not close to him as he moved away at 22 and has only visit twice in the 8 years since moving. Not a bad person, just not anyone close. As a teen he was bad but seems to have gotten his act together.

They were cool with it, but she just fiund out and is pissed. It's not like they are little kids...one is 17, one is 15. Both very responsible. 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?

    My partner and I have settled on having our femal friend Emily as our grooms attendant rather than having a best man as she’s out closest friend. If it wasn’t for her, we wouldn’t have been introduced at university. Finding dresses for has been a little difficult as she’s super short and very skinny. I kinda see why she used to shop in the kids section. I’ve found this dress that’s almost perfect, it just needs hemming about an inch for her. However she thinks it looks too bridal and is worried some people might mistake her for a bride. Though I think she’s being silly, no one is going to attend a gay wedding, see her in this dress and assume suddenly she’s a bride and we’ve “become straight”. I just want to put her mind to rest. Is it too bridal? https://www.asos.com/asos-petite/asos-de...

  • Engagement/wedding rings colours?

    Best answer: I don't think this is a weird question at all. I love tri-color jewelry and almost ended up with a tri-color engagement ring. But I worried about what it would look like with red, one of my fave colors. So we used the setting for another ring and I went with platinum. You'll figure this out. ... show more

    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.

    How well do you know the person?
    Do you like the person?
    A lot of people fall in love with people they do not like. That sound crazy, but true. You need to like and be friends to get threw the bad times. All marriages have them.

    Can you talk to the person, really talk?
    Do you know what you both want?
    Can you comprise?

    I knew my husband for three years as friends before we went out on a date. Then dated for three years. We were in college for four of those years.

    There are also a lot of diamond-substitutes, and not all couples even buy engagement rings

    Anyone who would kick their own sister out of their wedding over hair spray is a Bridezilla. But I don't think you're quite on the right track about how to handle it.
