    I’m the maid of honor at my sisters wedding. It’s in California and I live in Iowa. Her wedding is Friday the day after thanksgiving. Unfortunately, we are open that day. He told me he’s unsure he can approve my vacation time because of how many employees will likely need the same day off. He said he won’t know if he can approve my vacation until early November. I need to book my flight. I don’t know what to do!!! Do I just tell my sister I can’t be in her wedding and not attend? I can’t wair until early November to find out whether or not I can book my flight/attend the wedding. Any advice?

    First off, my dad is an alcoholic and mentally abusive... It is apparently a tradition that the parents of the bride pay for the wedding, but they are divorced my mom is very poor and my rich dad is very abusive, selfish, and unsupportive so I don’t know how that would even happen. My dad said he isn’t going to help. We are willing to pay for it ourselves, but I know that it is going to be so expensive. My dad hates my fiancé (been together for three years) and says horrible things about him all the time. I want everything to be perfect and I love my dad, but I almost don’t want him at my wedding because he has damaged me so badly about this and also for most of my life. I don’t know what he will do if I don’t invite him and my step mom because I am so afraid and terrified. Please can someone with similar experiences with abusive parents and weddings tell me what you did.

  • What if a man invited his best friend to accompany him on his honeymoon, and also let the friend spend some personal time with the bride?

    Best answer: Why would you put yourself in that position of spending personal time with his friend? If your boyfriend doesn't have any self respect for himself, and obviously no respect for you, then I would, at least, show the world I am a lady and demand respect. Then I would kick them both to the curb.

  • My fiancee's best friend has feelings for me and my fiancee doesn't care?

    We've been together for years and we are only weeks away from getting married. His best friend, who has lived up north for a year is moving back down here with his wife.

    We've been together for years and we are only weeks away from getting married. His best friend, who has lived up north for a year is moving back down here with his wife. Everyone except her knows that he has feelings for me, as he has told me several times and even broke me and my now fiancee up for a year just so he could take a wack at me. But that was a couple of years ago. He should not be married, and because he married so young he is feeling all of the regret and he reaches out to other girls when he shouldn't. The worst part is, when they move back here in a few days, they want to get an apartment with us and my fiancee is all for this. He is fully aware that his best friend has strong feelings for me, and he still wants me to live in the same place with him. Is it just me or is there something wrong with this?

  • Is my fiancé having second thoughts?

    Best answer: Here's the problem with your question. Your fiance said marriage is a lot to take in. That's all we know about this convo. Now you're turning to total strangers to ask what he meant. This is fine if someone has been dating for 2 months, but when you're a couple months out from a wedding,... show more
    Best answer: Here's the problem with your question. Your fiance said marriage is a lot to take in. That's all we know about this convo. Now you're turning to total strangers to ask what he meant. This is fine if someone has been dating for 2 months, but when you're a couple months out from a wedding, communication HAS to be much better than this.

    If you suffer from depression and anxiety, this sucks, but it's not a valid reason to avoid communicating with a man about to be your husband! So don't play that dangerous head game where you're "overthinking" this and all is well. It's not about thinking; it's about talking.

    There's just no way to avoid that tough convo with him. I wish you had said more about your response when he said this, and then anything else he had to say. But obviously it wasn't resolved. So there's nothing else to suggest other then meet it head on.

    Obviously, it's very possible he'd end up reassuring you that he's not getting cold feet. He might have just been talking about the magnitude of a wedding and all it entails. But it's still a bad sign that you're inside your head wondering about such a significant issue. You've GOT to be able to talk to him, because marriage is full of major challenges.

  • My brother is upset and refusing to attend my wedding because his girlfriend isn’t invited, but his ex is, how do I fix it?

    Best answer: You refused to invite his GF but you did invite his ex. That was really stupid. If he is invited, he should be able to bring his current GF. The ex is a separate matter then. but since you refused to invite the current GF, inviting the ex was a slap in the face. Since you initially refused the GF but invited... show more

The ex is a separate matter then. but since you refused to invite the current GF, inviting the ex was a slap in the face. Since you initially refused the GF but invited the Ex, now you need to reverse both or he might not come. If you had not excluded his current girlfriend, the Ex being there would not have been a big deal.

  • Is it wrong to attend a wedding with a date if my children don’t know I’m dating?

    Best answer: Don't tell them anything about a man you are seeing unless it is serious to get married and a relationship you can positively model for them. Tell them he is just sitting with you because he is you and your brothers personal friend and leave it at that. They are young and don't need to know much more. They... show more
    Best answer: Don't tell them anything about a man you are seeing unless it is serious to get married and a relationship you can positively model for them. Tell them he is just sitting with you because he is you and your brothers personal friend and leave it at that. They are young and don't need to know much more. They won't overthink it after that explanation and they will enjoy the wedding. Your ex is already modeling poor behavior by bringing a lot of women in and out of their lives which you should prevent btw by talking him out of it and getting courts involved if he won't stop until he only introduces someone serious long term. You need to be the better parent and show them they don't have to be trashy, dating everyone and traumatizing an already broken family with more of that. You want them to see stable relationships and hopefully a marriage that does work out if you marry this guy or someone else in the future so they can have stable marriages of their own. You don't want them to lead lives of dysfunction and loneliness because of how their childhoods were. You want them to know they should have better and that it is possible so they shouldn't settle for less.

  • Should I stitch dresses for bridesmaid?

    Best answer: Your fiance's sis needs to stay out of your wedding plans. YOU choose your own bridesmaids' dresses, and in the US, they are to pay for them.

    Best answer: Your fiance's sis needs to stay out of your wedding plans.
    YOU choose your own bridesmaids' dresses, and in the US, they are to pay for them. But the choice of the dress isn't theirs- it's yours.

    That means that whatever your fiance's sis bought is her problem.
    She isn't your bridesmaid, is she? She isn't your close friend.
    Pick only your close friends or siblings, and go find some pretty, nicely made dresses.
    Your future sister-in-law has no say in this. At all.
    And nobody should have to be sewing or stitching, unless they actually want to - and only if YOU want them to.

  • Hello wedding experts I have two questions:')?

    Best answer: You can propose anywhere you like. But maybe don't do it during the church service.

    You only need witnesses to sign the marriage license, but nobody needs to be a best man or maid/matron of honor. You can get married in a courthouse with friends attending if that's what you want.

    Best answer: You have answered your own question. No you shouldn't use him as a weapon. Let him go to the wedding if that's what he wants. It puts you in the higher moral position if you are playing games with your wife. She was petty re your wedding and it would be spiteful for you to do the same at hers. Start acting like adults. You both have new partners. Your son is in the middle torn between the two of you. Ultimately he will blame you and your wife for what he's been through so far in his life......don't let him blame you both for what goes on in future. Share him. He's nearly old enough to dispense with both of you. You don't HAVE to send him to the wedding. Your poor son is the only one who HAS to do as he's told.
