I wanted to keep the number kind of small, 3 is a perfect number. However, about 6 months ago, my brother and his fiancée... (more)

My best friend/MOH and her husband want to throw me a bachelorette party, but nobody has even mentioned the idea of throwing a bridal shower or engagement party. I live in VA and my fiancée lives in WA. We got engaged back in February. The wedding is not until... (more)

And even more specifically: lap dances. A reader recently wrote us upset because her husband had promised her he wouldn't have a lap dance at his bachelor party. After the party, he told her he...

Dear Wedding Maven, I have a question that I am very wishy washy about. I am having a small wedding on the beach. My father and my fiancé’s mother will be the only people attending. We were going to have dinner afterwards and send out announcements with pictures. My fiancé and I are paying for everything, finances are tight and I couldn't ask someone to help with my financial needs. ... (more)

Special to OneWed from The Plunge [editor's note: The views expressed herein are totally those of a uninformed guy, really, he's never been to a bridal shower!

This isn't about whether the pole crosses a line, betrays your girlfriend, or sets your marriage back a decade.... (more)

Special to OneWed from The Plunge It’s the truth. Not all guys like strippers. Odds are also good that for whatever reason, in his heart of hearts, the groom doesn't even want to go there, not for his bachelor party, not with wedding just weeks away. Also, frankly, it’s kind of played out, kind of a cliché. You can do better. You can get more creative. In addition to the ho-hum... (more)
