    He proposed in October 2016 and I won't lie, I talked about wanting to marry him a lot! and a month later I found out we were having a baby! She was born in July 2017. We are very happy with our little family and we have paid our deposits for the weddingon August 30th 2018! A few days ago he said he's been thinking about it for a while and he doesn't think he wants to get married anymore. He says he doesn't want to be controlled by the courts if something happened between us? He sees how upset I am and is now saying he doesn't want to talk about it and we will rediscuss it in April, before all the final payments have to be made. The invites have already been sent I know I can't force him to marry me but I want to be married. We love each other deeply and have a beautiful baby girl and we want her to have both parents as she grows up. So any advise on what to do now? Anyone been through a similar situation?

  • I don’t want kids at our wedding but my fiancé does?

    I’m totally okay with kids in general, but I don’t want them at our wedding. I think kids just change the mood of parties or events and I’d like a mature environment.

    I’m totally okay with kids in general, but I don’t want them at our wedding. I think kids just change the mood of parties or events and I’d like a mature environment. I don’t want to worry about kids running all over the place or having to pay more for their meals. My family is paying a majority like 75/25 and the wedding isn’t for 2 years. He wants everyone and anyone to be there and he thinks if we don’t let people bring their kids they won’t come. We’ve planned with the venue for about 150 and honestly I don’t want half of our seats to be kids. My side of the family’s kids are all miss behaved and crazy while his side is more tame(due to parenting). But obviously I can’t just allow his side of the family’s children. How can I convince him that kids aren’t really a good idea? Especially if my mom and I are paying for at least the venue and catoring by ourselves.

  • Should I ditch my duties as a bridesmaid because I wasn’t placed as maid of honour?

    My cousin (who’s also my closest friend and a childhood friend) is getting married in 2 months. I was expecting to be her maid of honour, long story short I was quite upset for a while when I found out she had placed her second cousin as maid of honour and me after her. I never mentioned anything to her and I didn’t want to make it about me and didn’t want to upset her and make 5ings awkward. But the maid of honour is doing nothing about the hens. I was having a convo with the bride recently and she mentioned she said organising the hens, when I asked her why she was the one organising it and told her to not forget about it because that wasn’t her job. I msgd the maid of honour and started talking about other ideas, the maid of honour seem a like she’s relying on me, she’s got nothing planned yet, I had to book the hotel, and I keep nagging her about where we’re at because we’re running out of time. Should I just stop stressing over it and leave it to the maid of honour and not care about whatever happens on the day? I’m still hurt ober it but why should I be doing these things when someone’s else gets the honour title?

    I recently got engaged. I want to attend bridal shows. However, we have not decided on a date yet. I want to go to bridal show to get inspiration. I do not know if this is appropriate though because I do not plan on booking any vendors (as we do not have a date set) and I do not want to take time away from brides who have a more set-in-stone plan. Should I go to enjoy myself and get inspiration or not yet? On bridal show I am thinking about attending is coming up in a couple weeks. I know my fiance and I will not have a date picked out for quite some time until we get our finances in order.

  • Girls: would you go to a spa the day before your wedding with your bridesmaids?

    Best answer: At least a week before
    any treatments may cause breakouts and there is far too much to do the day before a wedding, even IF there isnt anything to do, I would rather be relaxing at home

    In all cases, parents/families are welcome to volunteer to help pay for some/all of the wedding, but they are in no way obligated to do so.

    The "tradition" of specific family members paying for specific things may vary from culture to culture, but very rarely is that a mandatory expectation anymore.

  • Should I ask my girls to be my bridesmaids before I make and send “Will you be my bridesmaids” boxes?

    Best answer: Dont waste your money on unnecessary stuff. You said it yourself, every dollar counts, so why waste money?

    Best answer: Dont waste your money on unnecessary stuff. You said it yourself, every dollar counts, so why waste money? At the beginning people don’t really know how much everything will cost so they make the mistake of wasting money on save dates, magnets, engagement photo shoots and other stupid stuff, and when it comes time to pay deposits for the venue, caterer, musicians, photographer, cake, dj, invitations, attire etc.etc.etc. they don’t have the money and they are forced to downscale or do without important stuff.

    Just ask the people a year ahead at the most and leave it at that. If your wedding is over a year from now, is not necessary to ask anyone yet. No need for boxes, nobody needs boxes. You will have plenty of opportunities to spend money on your bridesmaids when you pay for their dinner at the rehearsal, give them the bridal party gifts, pay fo their make up and hair to be done, others even pay for the dresses. Keep your purse tight for now, you will need to use your money wisely.

  • Single Maid of Honor?

    My friend recently asked me to be her Maid of Honor and I’m super excited, except I’m going to be single for the wedding. I’ve never had a boyfriend before and I don’t want to ruin the balance or anything, but I’m afraid she’s going to try to set me up and that sounds terrible. What should I do?

    I'm planning my cousin's bridal shower for a group of about 22 ladies. I found the perfect location, right next to the marina, has nice shade coverage (it was recently remodeled!) but its right next to a playground. I'm worried it might get a little loud for a shower? We decided to do it at a park because it was such a large group but not having ever planned a bridal shower, I'm not sure if the playground might be a little strange? I love kids and I don't mind it but I'm not sure if would be too loud with kids running around for one and I know - at least from the showers I've been to - it's always really private etc. What do you ladies think?

    me and fiancé\gf are only 19 we've been together since 14 and next year wanted to get married, for her birthday I even got her a ring and it was just amazing. in the past I have done bad things but never cheated and never will but the last year I was so in love with her and grew up and only focused on her. the last month I felt that she has been off with me and just not as in love when I asked whats wrong she would say nothing and I didn't want to argue. the last 2-3 weeks has been very very very hard for me as she is now saying she does not love me which I know is not true, she will not reply to my messages until like 8 hours later or try avoid them she does not want to see me even though I haven't spoken to her for 2-3 weeks. two nights ago we had a phone call and I told her not to worry she can tell me everything and she told me that she rushed into the relationship and that she still misses her ex after 4 years of being together. as anyone can imagine this is extremely difficult for me and her but I do not want to lose her as she is my world, I had our dream planned out and it was all coming true until now. please tell me what is best. (ps. I the last two weeks I left her her favourite snacks outside her house and what she enjoys to eat)
