• Should I serve non vegan food at my wedding reception because family are refusing to attend the wedding if I serve vegan food?

    I’ve been vegan half my life and my fiancé has been vegan for almost all of his life as a lot of his family are vegan or vegetarian.

    I’ve been vegan half my life and my fiancé has been vegan for almost all of his life as a lot of his family are vegan or vegetarian. We decided early on that we would only have vegan food at our wedding. However now members of my family are turning around and saying that they won’t attend if I serve vegan food, even my own mother has turned around and said she won’t attend as they’ll be nothing she can eat. I’ve been to family weddings, celebrations and birthdays where there has been literally nothing for me to eat and I’ve sat there with a smile on my face. After the first 2 where I realised there was no food I could eat, I brought my own and was often shunned to eating it in my car. I had to pay for and cook my own food when I went vegan as my parents refused to “fund my damaging lifestyle” but were ok to give my brother money every weekend to get incredibly drunk. I don’t want to fall out over something as silly as what food I serve but at the same time it’s important to me to have vegan food.

  • Is it wrong to be upset that the only members of our bridal party are dropping out last minute?

    Both my fiancee’s bridesmaid and my best man have dropped out from the wedding last minute. They’re married with 2 children of their own. Their youngest is 4 months old, he was born 10 weeks early and his mother was very sick after the birth. She spent almost 3 weeks in hospital. During that time my fiancee and I... show more
    Both my fiancee’s bridesmaid and my best man have dropped out from the wedding last minute. They’re married with 2 children of their own. Their youngest is 4 months old, he was born 10 weeks early and his mother was very sick after the birth. She spent almost 3 weeks in hospital. During that time my fiancee and I were there for them; helping with care for their oldest so he could be with his wife. Since coming out of hospital, she’s really struggled. Now it’s our wedding this weekend and they’ve both turned around to say they won’t be able to make it. She’s not feeling like she has the stamina for it, she’s already exhausted and doesn’t want to make herself worse this close to Christmas. He doesn’t feel comfortable being away from the kids while she’s exhausted, especially as their son is getting sniffly so he wants to keep an eye on it encase they have to take him to hospital. I’m annoyed because its such a small wedding and if they didn’t want to do it then should have said earlier so we could have found others who actually care about us to do it. My fiancee is upset but putting on a brave face as she understands that her friend’s health needs to come first, but I think they’re over reacting out their son as it’s just a snuffed nose.

  • Can you ask a friend to plan her wedding date around your schedule?

    My good friend got engaged and is looking to plan her wedding within the next year.

    My good friend got engaged and is looking to plan her wedding within the next year. She is considering a month where I have a major commitment, something that was in my plans before she even got engaged. She is aware of my conflict, she even checked in and confirmed what date is not good for me. I didn t want to be that annoying opinionated friend so I assured her she should plan as she needs and not to worry about me. The more I think about it though, I will be really disappointed and, quite frankly a little heartbroken, if i have to change my plans for her wedding (not to mention I already have a non-refundable payment down for this event). Is it rude to go back and ask her to not book the wedding that one weekend of the month she wants?

    She began by asking for the receipt, and saying no one bought the game console unless we meant to send it. I told her sorry, let me know how I can make it up to you since she seemed displeased. She clarified asking whether I meant to JUST get her USED games from my husband AND I. FYI my husband after years just started getting full time work hours. He’s always struggled, I’m a teacher and the earner. We have two kids under 4. As a busy mama I honestly tried to give her the best I could. I got her an engagement, wedding shower, and a wedding gift: wine, customized beach towels, monogrammed makeup bag, wedding plates with marriage year, and Pokémon games (two bc her husband’s a huge fan). Her bridesmaid, a good friend of ours, mentioned she wanted something personal for her, like Pokémon games. I told my friend I’d gladly supply a check with an amount that would suffice and that reflects what I originally hoped to give. Meanwhile I had under $2,000 in my bank acct. I admit by the end I shouldn’t have answered her at all, and I got pretty pissed and was rude to her which I regret. I just feel like she’s coming from a place in her life of dual incomes, no kids to spend on, vacations and drinking, while I’m just going through the many busy days of #momlife and just tried to be there for her wedding in the first place. So, was she being tacky and rude? Am I a bad friend?? She says I had bad friend etiquette.

    For so many years I had kept an image of a ring that I wanted recreating for when I married. Fast forward a few years, I’m engaged and the jeweller creates that wedding ring I’ve always wanted, exactly how I wanted!! THEN, my (now ex) fiancé and I break up and I’ve given the ring back to him. Fast forward a few more years from this and (my now) new boyfriend has proposed to me. It comes to choosing the wedding ring. DILEMMA: I do still love the the ring that I had saved on my phone gallery all those years ago- even having it recreated to be the one that ended up being my ring when I was previously engaged. Would it be wrong/weird/odd to have that ring recreated yet again? (It would be a different jewellers this time round!) I understand some people could see it as being a bad omen or just weird. What are your thoughts?

  • My sister is having a vegan wedding, is it wrong if I don’t go?

    My sister is getting married in March, they’re having a vegan wedding. Both her and her fiancé are vegan. She was a vegetarian from the age of 4 after a school visit to a farm when she refused to eat the pigs she’d spent the day petting. When she was 14 she went vegan. She’s now been vegan half her life. While her fiancé grew up vegan in a vegan household. I’ve never agreed with the fact she was vegan, she got very thin after turning vegan as it’s very restrictive. And now she’s raising my niece vegan which I completely disagree with even if she is the healthiest child I’ve ever seen, she’s never sick. When I got married, we chose to not offer a vegan option. We had a vegetarian option which she refused because the caterer couldn’t promise that there would be no cross contamination with the cheese and cream used. She just sat there and ate the bread sticks and drank water while everyone else ate. When her now fiancé came to the evening do, he brought her some food which they ate in the car because the venue wouldn’t allow outside food. Now she’s refusing to serve anything other than vegan food for her wedding which I don’t think is fair. Is it wrong if I chose not to go purely based on the fact she’s serving vegan food? I don’t fancy being preached at over dinner to why I shouldn’t be eating what I want to eat. Despite the fact her reception is in their garden, she has openly said outside food won’t be allowed as their a vegan household.

  • What's the point of posting engagement pictures on social media?

    Best answer: The modern wedding has devolved into a 'celebrity for a day' kind of event that's less for the couple to declare their love and more for the couple to show off how much money they spent. Social media just allows people already so inclined to gloat to a wider audience.

    I am not looking for the grand romantic story, but just the average proposal. Did you go somewhere special to both of you? Do it over dinner at a restaurant? In front of people or alone?

  • What do you think about a heart shaped engagement ring?

    Best answer: cute when you are young but maybe not so classy for when you are in your 40s and older. Hopefully you get to wear and engagement ring all your life. Plus it might not sit well with a wedding ring if the stone extends beyond the band,

    Romantic and cute now but maybe not the best long term choice

    My english tutor for 7 years is getting married next Sunday and my mom and I are in an argument for what to get her. My mom insists that a small set of plates and cups from Victorias Basement are perfect but I think a pair of swarvoski earrings or necklace is better. She says that its custom for newlyweds to receive plates but I know that my tutor enjoys accessories and fashion. My mom keeps telling me that it s not right to gift earrings to a bride-to-be but its been over thirty years since her own wedding and especially because she got married to fit south korean culture, not Australian. What do you think? Do you have any better gift ideas?
