    We're having a very tiny wedding with close family only. It's registry. We don't want to spend a lot of money and we've just had a baby so we don't want it to be a long event. We thought of directly thanking everyone for coming as everyone leaves the ceremony. My mother is pressuring us to do things we really don't want such as a sit-down meal in a nice restaurant which doesn't fit our style or budget at all. We would rather go to a buffet or just go home and send thank you cards. Everyone knows we have a low budget. Is it totally unreasonable to not want a reception?

  • Why is it so hard to come up with reception ideas?

    Best answer: Why not have something small at your parents house or yours? You do not have to go to a restaurant. This could be a compromise with your mom, she can have it out her place and you can have a place for your baby to sleep and keep it simple. If you have guest, you need a reception, it's a thank you.

    Best answer: Why not have something small at your parents house or yours?
    You do not have to go to a restaurant.
    This could be a compromise with your mom, she can have it out her place and you can have a place for your baby to sleep and keep it simple.
    If you have guest, you need a reception, it's a thank you.
    If people do not come to the reception that is okay.

    Talk to your mom, see if she will be willing having something at her house.
    Tell her if she like she could plan it. Figure out who pays during planning.
    Keep it simple.

    There no rule it have to be in a restaurant.
    I been to reception held in people backyard and houses.

  • How long after booking a wedding do you invite people?

    Best answer: It is a very good thing to let your guests know the date right away so they can plan ahead! Schedules can book up quickly, so getting your date and plans confirmed is better all around. Stop letting people tell you what to do!

    Best answer: It is a very good thing to let your guests know the date right away so they can plan ahead! Schedules can book up quickly, so getting your date and plans confirmed is better all around. Stop letting people tell you what to do! We live in a rural area where schedules and plans and dates are set well in advance -- if we want to have a school function on a certain weekend we have to let people know at least 3 months in advance to make sure the date is saved and marked in calendars with reminders on social media because people can either go to one event or the other across town, but not both. So DO tell your guests right away. And it is YOUR wedding, not your mother's wedding, so if you DO know what to do and how you want to do it, make your plans and do not let her convince you otherwise. Sometimes it is best to be in charge of your own plans for your own life. If I listened to my own mother I would be unmarried and living in the desert with a bunch of weird religious cult people. Do what you know to do and things will work out. But get those invites out right away before schedules and calendars book up! And congratulations!

I ve been looking online to see what I need but not a time frame or full answers of what I am looking for.

Since the wedding is in November when do we need to get the marriage license? Do we take it to the venue where we are getting married?

    My fiance and I have been dating for 6 years, and engaged for about 2 years (we are taking our time getting married but we just bought a house together last year). I do love him and dont have any second thoughts about marrying him. But he is so annoying. Hes really needy and he complains a lot that I don't cook very good ( I really hate cooking). He always wants to watch tv and cuddle (which is cool but sometimes i need some fresh air, and he never ever wants to do anything outside and be active). I talk to him about the stuff that irritaes me but the convo is always like "well thats who i am so if u dont like it thats too bad" He also complains a lot that I dont have a lot of friends. That kind of hurts my feelings b/c he says it in a derogatory way like theres somethign wrong with me, but I know the reason I dont have any friends is because my career is extremely demanding of my time (im an actuary and currently taking exams for my fellowship). He just hurts me and irritates me and sometimes doesnt give me enough space. Is this the kind of crap everyone goes through? IMO its better than having a terrible secret like cheating-- at least everything is out in the open. But on a scale of 1 to 10 how much should I expect to feel upset about my relationship 6 years in ?

    Best answer: Quick answer: the minute you wonder if it's domestic abuse, it's probably domestic abuse. People in healthy relationships don't wonder about that.

    Every single sentence you wrote here is domestic abuse. He's controlling and angry. Bringing your daughter up with him isn't healthy.

    So, the first thing you do is that you can take a domestic abuse test online. Just Google it.

    Then the next thing you do is call a domestic abuse organization and talk to someone. You'll have to see that this is abuse, it's unhealthy, and it's unfixable. That may take counseling and time. You may go back and forth a few times. He may promise to do better, or he may get angry and violent with you. Just because he doesn't hit you now doesn't mean he won't.

    Then you'll need to make a plan to get out. The domestic abuse hotline will help you with that. It's the most dangerous time. He won't like your being out of his control and taking your daughter. He'll threaten you, he'll make promises, he may threaten to try for full custody of your child (the judge won't grant that), he may try to use his public position in some way.

    When you're out, it will take a long time to adjust to being out. You'll need counseling, and your daughter may need it, too.

    While you're working on all this, make sure you have solid birth control that you control. No use bringing another child into this.

    Your friends and family will welcome you back. They miss you! And they hate this jerk for what he's done to you to make you doubt yourself.

    Do NOT marry him. Don't make it worse, no matter what he says.

    Oh, one other thing. I'm guessing he's older, right? That's how he's in the public eye, and you "fall pregnant" at 19. He picked you because you were young and easy to manipulate. Women his age see right through him.

    I am the maid of honor for my friend's wedding. She wants two nights in Atlantic City. We live 2 hours away so we will be driving and splitting the cost of gas. So far, the bridesmaids and I have booked a stripper, are splitting the brides share of the hotel and will be gifting her lingerie (the bride commanded we buy her lingerie because she wanted a bachelorette/lingerie party). Is it required of us to pay for the bride's entire trip? As in dinner, spa, lunch, drinks? She has expensive taste so I know her choice of restaurants will be not cheap. Her fiance mentioned to me once that the bridesmaids are supposed to pay for EVERYTHING. I don't know if this is fair being that this is a destination bachelorette party. So far, with decorations and party favors, I'm estimating the bridesmaids and I have spent around $300 each on the party. Not to mention the expenses of the actual wedding, which is also a destination. The entire weekend is going to end up costing us over $500 each, assuming we don't pay for the bride's outing expenses. We are not doctors or lawyers, we work post-college mid-level jobs. It upsets me to have to conform to very unreasonable traditions. If the party was local, I'm well aware the bride shouldn't spend a penny. However, I don't believe the same rules apply to a destination party. What is proper bachelorette party etiquette?
