Getting Married?

Bridesmaids shined bride’s shoes?

Lepke asked:

I want your honest opinion. I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and the maid of honor wanted to help the bride pack for the honeymoon. So the bride picked out the clothes she wanted to take and laid them out on the bed. The MOH asked the other bridesmaids to help – we thought help with packing. But we were asked to shine the bride’s shoes that she was planning to take on the honeymoon. What do you think about this – weird or no big deal?
For those wanting to know what culture this was: American (the wedding took place in the DC suburbs and the MOH was the bride’s sister)

What did you get at your bridal shower?

smfeld asked:

I am a bridesmaid in my friends wedding in August. I already got their wedding gift from the registry. I need to get something for the bridal shower yet and don’t think I should get something off the registry

Would a bottle of wine and a picture frame do?

I have limited spending money.

What is appropriate to wear to an engagement party?

suprsarah asked:

The event is in the evening and the bride is dressing up but usually picks more simple style clothing. I am a bridesmaid and don’t wont to out dress her it’s her day! ideas? 80 people we’re partying at a Rod and Gun Club and most of the future wedding party will be staying at the same hotel so were meeting for drinks later too! Oh and it’s freezing out I live near Buffalo!

Fun bridal party beach clothes?

summertime14 asked:

I am getting married on the beach in Florida and was looking for fun bridal party clothes like shirts, flip flops, hats, etc that would say, “bridesmaid” or “bride to be”. Clothes like that. I wanted them in a beach theme, but I am having trouble finding sites that offer that. If you could please send me some links I would appreciate it very much!

What do you think of this idea for wedding attendent gifts?

GettinHitched 10-2-11 asked:

This is more for the bridesmaids gifts than groomsmen since I know my fiance wants to do something special for them. I was thinking of gathering little things every now and then when I see a sale at Bath and Body works, Victoria’s Secret, and Beauty Supply stores in the area. I was going to put a little gift basket together for each bridesmaid that will have a matching nail polish to go with her dress and mani/pedi set, grooming tool set, scented lotions, hand soap, small sewing kit, and a gift card to get nails done. Of course we will write each attendant a nice heartfelt letter in a card to thank them for everything they’ve helped us with throughout the year preparing for our big day. Does this sound ok? I don’t want to get them a monogrammed towel or something like I’ve seen given to people in bridal parties before. I’ve gotten monogrammed things from brides before and I just don’t understand the importance of it. The bridesmaids are all choosing out their own dress styles. So far, 2 of the 5 already chose their dresses, and they both have a one-shoulder strap dress with a broach accent that gives them enough umph that they don’t need a necklace. That was my other idea for gifts.

Looking better than bride?

Liz Hope asked:

My fiance’s sister asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding, although I’m sure her mother made her ask. I have no problem being in the wedding but don’t know what to do about the current situation. The bride and her other two bridesmaids have been treating me terribly because I don’t look like them. I am a petite blonde and people have always told me that I am very pretty. My future sister-in-law and her friends are physical opposites of me. The bride put me in the most unattractive dress that she could find and asked me to put on some weight for the wedding to “fill it out better.” At 5’4″, 115lbs, and 32d, I think I fill out most clothing very well. Of course, she is 5’6″ and wears a 24 in women’s plus size, so I guess she knows a little more about filling clothes out! She also refuses to let me come to her bridal shower because she thinks I’m always the center of attention. To top it off, today she told me that I’m not going to be allowed to wear any makeup to the wedding or get my hair done, and she doesn’t want me to tan for at least three weeks. Does anyone else think this is ridiculous? What should I do????

The MOH is arranging the bridal shower but I think the ‘silly gift’ will upset the bride, should I step in?

Katy asked:

The bride is going to be my sister in law. The MOH is her half sister who has only recently come into her life, but it was important to the bride to have a relative as the MOH and I am just a bridesmaid.
The MOH has gotten the bride some sexy underwear as a joke gift, the thing is the underwear is designed for pregnant women. The bride isn’t pregnant, she is just overweight slightly. She can’t have children and I think recieving underwear designed to be wore by a pregnant woman will upset her a lot, not because she is overweight but she can’t have children either. Everyone that knows her knows she can’t have children because she is open abaout it but there are certain things that make her really upset about not being able to have children and I am almost certain this underwear will be one of them, she got upset when we went shopping together and I was looking at Maternity clothes recently.
The MOH is meant to be her sister and she’s going to do nothing but make the bride upset. The only thing the MOH has been put in charge of is arranging the bridal shower and she hasn’t done most of it, the other bridesmaids and I have done most of the work she was meant to do.
Should I step in and tell the bride or get rid of the underwear?

What is an acceptable amount to spend for a bridal shower and wedding gift when you are a bridesmaid?

anniebell asked:

My Best friend asked me to be in her wedding which is happening in about 4 months. How much should I plan on spending for this. I make less then 20,000 a year and I am finical on my own. I have to buy a dress, shoes, pay for a the shower, contribute a gift for shower and wedding, Bach party, hotel stay, hair and makeup……………
it just gets really expensive. I love my best friend, but I don’t want to tap into mysavings during this economy. This is the first month that I haven’t had to dip into my savings to pay my rent.

What if someone is naturally prettier than the bride?

stuckhere1993 asked:

I was listening to the radio this morning and I heard of a story about a bride that wants to be prettiest on her wedding. I mean, no duh, any bride would want that. The bride actually told the bridesmaids not to look prettier than her. The thing is, most of the bridesmaid were prettier than her. It wasn’t that any of the bridesmaids were planning to wear red, black, or white ect.-something wrong. I don’t know, but I feel as though the bride’s has low self esteem. The eyes are going to be on her anyways.
I’m indian and when we go to a wedding, we all get new gorgeous and expensive clothes. The women that are already married, wear the same thing they wore on their wedding. Everyone looks gorgeous, but everyone just cares about the bride and groom.
So should the bride just invite ugly guests to her wedding only?
you know, i dont think anyones ugly. everyones beautiful in their own way.
so should i rephase it for the ones who just don’t understand?!
