Can’t afford to be a bridesmaid
MrsJackson in Community Conversations, on January 20, 2020 at 11:19 AM

So when the bride first asked me to be a bridesmaid, I didn’t know it would be out of state at a 5 star hotel. I’ve realized I have to pay for the flights for me and my husband (about $800) , 2...

MrsJackson in Etiquette and Advice, on December 31, 2019 at 11:52 AM

So my best friend and I are both BMs in our friend's wedding. My best friend told me that she won't be able to afford being in the wedding or to travel since it's out of state. I told her that she...

MrsJackson in Wedding Attire, on November 20, 2019 at 1:13 PM

I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding next year. The bride says she doesn't have a preference for shoes, but she'd like for them to be rose gold color if possible. The wedding is going to be on a beach, so...

MrsJackson in Parties and Events, on August 23, 2019 at 12:43 PM

Rant/Vent: On the group chat with all the BMs, the MOH asks us about our individual budget for the bride's bachelorette party. (I'm not the bride). I messaged her individually asking "Does the budget...

MrsJackson in Etiquette and Advice, on March 13, 2019 at 3:44 PM

Hello all, I wanted to get your opinion on the responsibilities and duties of the MOH and BMs. Here on WW, I came across an article listing the duties of the MOH and it seems to conflict with what...

When to give the bridal party gifts?
MrsJackson in Community Conversations, on September 20, 2018 at 3:52 PM

I know a lot of people say to give the bridal party gifts at the rehearsal dinner, but isn't that a little awkward giving some people presents and not others? Also, wouldn't it be kind of strange...

How to not cry
MrsJackson in Community Conversations, on October 11, 2018 at 11:36 AM

So I've never been an emotional person, but every time I watch a wedding video or think about my dad giving me away, I start tearing up. I don't want to look like an uncontrollable sobbing mess on my...

moh will "try her best" to be at the rehearsal..
MrsJackson in Community Conversations, on October 9, 2018 at 11:00 AM

I know that the MOH's only requirement is to be at the wedding in her dress, which she is, at least I hope. She texted me yesterday saying that she'll "try her best" to be at the rehearsal on time......

MrsJackson in Etiquette and Advice, on October 5, 2018 at 12:42 PM

I think my reception layout is good, but I'm not sure if it'll be crowded or anything. It's gonna be a 40' x 80' tent on my grandparent's farm. Reception Layout

Can you review my vows?
MrsJackson in Wedding Ceremony, on September 25, 2018 at 9:50 AM

I wanted to post my vows and get your input. I'm not the best writer, but I didn't want to do the traditional repeat after me vows. I read it aloud and it's only about a minute and a half. I'm worried...

MrsJackson in Planning, on September 24, 2018 at 9:55 AM

My DOC made a timeline, but it doesn't seem very detailed. Am I wrong and should trust them to know everything that needs to happen? Because I sent them a timeline from the knot that was way more...

MrsJackson in Community Conversations, on September 18, 2018 at 2:45 PM

Hi everyone! I wanted to start a forum here and ask everyone what they do to help get rid of stress (even if it's temporary). One thing I do is I volunteer at the animal shelter. I don't know why, but...
