Results for The Wedding Party

Dear Wedding Maven, I have a sticky situation relating to my bridesmaids. I got engaged 1 year and 3 months ago, and at that time, I asked my brother's fiancée to be one of my bridesmaids, along with my sister (as the maid of honor of course) and my fiancé's sister.

Dear Maven, I'm going nuts, because my mom is trying to take over my entire wedding, She decided she wants assigned seats for her list, none of my friends are going to have assigned seats or the groom’s family, but her guests are going to have assigned seats. I think it’s the dumbest idea ever yet my mom won't back down. She needs to realize that this is MY wedding not hers, and I’m... (more)

My friend and her fiancé set a date for three years ahead, planning a gorgeous and extravagant garden party wedding, but the date kept changing. Finally she set a date for... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, My father is getting married this summer to a women with whom I get along (she's much better then other women he's had in his life). Without anyone asking me, I was told I was going to be a bridesmaid, which is fine, but I'm also 20 and have never been in a wedding before (meaning I don't really know how things are supposed to go). Despite the fact that they are both... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, I'm in a dilemma. My best friend is getting married in a matter of weeks and I am her maid of honor. My issue is that she has been cheating on her fiancé for months now.

Dear Wedding Maven, I am the MOH in my best friend's wedding and I am just clueless on what is actually needed to make this her special day. I've never been a MOH before so I'm trying to do my best. I think the biggest problem is that the bride is on the west coast, the 2 MOH's (including me) are on the east coast, I don't know where the other bridesmaid is, and the wedding is in the... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, I've always wanted to have my bridal party dress up as superheroes in my wedding. Wonder Woman and Superman, things like that that. My friend of 18 years and matron of honor flat out refuses to even try on a costume. The idea to her is absurd. I even offered to modify the costume so that it’s more flattering but she refuses. What should I do? I like being different but... (more)
