  • I agree that the relationship will be ended with your boss, and not on good terms, so you don't have to invite her. However, I would still invite the coworkers who got STDs. Assuming your relationship is otherwise fine with them, these are people w…
  • We only had centerpieces because it was included in our venue in our formal-ish wedding. We DID splurge and get porcelain TARDIS and Death Star cookie jars because I was not into the whole flower thing and I wanted our personalities to come through …
  • Unless you or your FI are Native American or pagan: If I went to this wedding and saw this integrated into an otherwise Christian ceremony, I'd probably walk out, tbh. It would be like a Wiccan coven using a crucifix to represent the god next to a …
  • I'm assuming your mother kept her name because she's a feminist. I did the same, for that reason.  One of the most important (IMHO) feminist perspectives is that women individually decide what is best for themselves. Want to skip kids and work? Awe…
  • I wear my e-ring and wedding band out most of the time - though sometimes I'll run to the grocery store or something and forget. It's actually cold enough that they're getting loose outside, so I'm thinking of just putting them on a chain to wear as…
  • I'm not sure if anyone has addressed this, but something I would have liked to realize at 22 or 23: You're an adult. You're doing an adult thing by getting married. It's between you and your FI. Your parents may want something for you, but too bad.…
  • PPs have other things covered, but I had a similar situation in that H is not comfortable with math or finances, whereas I'm an analyst and make us spreadsheets for everything. (He's learned in the past few years, but we both know where our strong s…

  • lovesclimbing said: Fwiw, I have to get a new one after having my daughter, and I'm not getting a diva cup. I'm going to get the lunette. A friend recommended it. I like that the "stem" on the lunette is flat rather than round and hollow like t…
  • Ro041 said: I guess I always assumed that people shipped gifts because they were lazy, didn't want to take them there, and didn't want to pay to wrap them.  I will probably think about sending gifts before an event in the future, but I won't th…
  • This is so not my experience. I've never brought a gift (beyond a card/check) to a wedding because I think it's a PITA for me to lug to the venue. I'd rather have it shipped. But we had literally 2 cars full of gifts at our wedding. We have friend…

  • Invite your godmother because you're going to enjoy yourself a lot more if there's no family drama, and it sounds like she's always on her best behavior in front of others. But try to clear the air. If she won't engage, write her a letter, clearly …
  • ahoywedding said: How rude! We also had about 130ish people in early April and our thank you's were out within about two weeks of the wedding. We went to a wedding about a month & a half ago, but I just gave the bride her gift two weeks ag…
  • UGH. We had a 130-person wedding in late April and all of our thank you cards were done and out by the end of May. And if you're going to make the (rude) choice to wait, at least have the courtesy to text people and let them know their gifts made it…
  • Reading through this, I think there's one thing you should concentrate on: All these problem stem from other people. As long as you and your FI are shouldering the burden as a pair, and you're supporting each other through this, I'd try to remember…

  • Wow. I'm glad the groom took what seems like the correct course of action here. I'm just surprised that he became close enough to be involved in the wedding before his crazy came out. 
  • I'm so sorry....this woman has no sense of priorities, and you wound up being hurt because she doesn't understand what's important in life. That always sucks. I know it won't make you feel better, but I hope you remember that she's the one in the w…

  • I thought those were rhinestones, not dots, @artbyallie. The closest one I found was $1,050: https://www.twigsandhoney.com/collections/veils/products/shimmering-starry-crystal-veil-style-712
