Jessica, on September 17, 2019 at 10:25 AM

This is a super silly question - I'm almost embarrassed to ask! How does a bride get drinks on the wedding day? Does she wait in line like everyone else? Does someone grab her a drink?? Does she go to...

In-laws bought beautiful flowers but . . .
Jessica, on September 17, 2019 at 8:36 AM

FFIL is so sweet. He went way out of his way and must have spent a small fortune on Hawaiian leis for the entire bridal party and parents and grandparents (this was kindof a surprise). FH and his...

Groom's Reaction?
Jessica, on September 13, 2019 at 10:15 AM

If you're married, how did your groom react? If you're getting married, how do you think he will react vs. how do you hope he'll react? I feel like there's so much pressure on him! My FH is amazing....

Red to a wedding?
Jessica, on September 13, 2019 at 9:42 AM

Are you inviting children?
Lynnie, on September 3, 2019 at 11:05 AM

Having an adults-only wedding is a really easy way to trim down your guest list, but it can also sometimes make it more difficult for your guests to attend. Will your wedding be a family affair? Are...

fmil Boundaries?? She's making goodie bags for his bachelor party??
Jessica, on August 28, 2019 at 10:32 AM

I'm too involved to be objective about this at this point. I can't tell if I'm being unreasonable, if FMIL is being unreasonable, or what's happening. Anyway, FMIL seems to be confused. She has told...

Inappropriate dancing and upstaging?
Jessica, on August 15, 2019 at 1:15 PM

Help! What would you guys do? And does this make me prudish?? I'm definitely an introvert and feel uncomfortable in the spotlight as I can be a bit shy; however, on my wedding day I'd like to really...
