Future Mother in Law getting a little crazy
Mallory, on September 16, 2019 at 5:41 AM

I need to vent about this! Can't really say it to my fiance (Well, I can but don't really want to). Don't want to say it to my friends because I have been trying to refrain from talking about my...

Grooms family is not putting in any effort or care in the wedding...what do i do?
Shawnda , on August 15, 2018 at 5:26 PM

Not sure how to handle this, if I even need to, and if I should even care. My fiancé and I are in one of those situations where we are paying for most of our wedding on our own. Which is fine to me-...

How to disinvite bridesmaid
Alex, on February 12, 2024 at 8:58 PM

TLDR; friendship has grown apart quite a bit since asking my friend to be a bridesmaid. We haven’t spoken in 4 months, and probably haven’t seen each other since July 2023. I guess let me start with:...

Not inviting father’s mistress
Brianne, on June 5, 2021 at 8:59 AM

I’m not the bride but the sister in law. She is in a difficult situation and we could use an outside perspective. My father in law (brides father) had an affair and divorced my mother in law after 35...

Plus Ones/moh
Honey, on January 28, 2024 at 6:32 PM

I’ve posted before about plus ones for my destination wedding. I’d decided on “no plus ones” but would adjust on a case by case. No one has needed a plus one, as we’d invited mostly family and all...
