Hi! I'm Kristy and I'm new here and after reading thru the boards, feeling, well, extremely happy that my wedding "stresses" are not that bad! All of the people who are involved in our wedding want to be, are excited to do so and have offered to help with anything. I also was unaware that giving a gift to them when we "officially" asked them to be a part of our day would make any of them feel uncomfortable.
My biggest question so far was how to include my future SIL in the wedding without having her be a bridesmaid. We know she cannot afford to do so, but I still want her to be involved. After reading the boards, I see that I should just include her in events, but not expect her to attend everything. Any other advice?
