Dear Wedding Maven, I’m a newly engaged woman. My fiancé and I have not decided on our bridesmaids, maid of honor, groomsmen and best man. My mother is very demanding and controlling. She wants to be the mother of the bride as well as the maid of honor. I have told her that I don’t think its a good idea, but every time we talk she brings it up. I love my mother but I don’t want her... (more)

Now is the time when the last cousin is getting married. She lives in the midwest, and the rest of us are in three other states. Is there an acceptable way to give her a shower by mail?

Dear Wedding Maven I have a bridesmaid problem. One of my bridesmaids doesn’t shave her legs or underarms. It’s not a political thing, she just can’t be bothered. I don’t really care, but my mother keeps bringing it up because the girls are wearing strapless dresses. She keeps telling me that I need to ask my friend to shave for the wedding. She says it will distract from the overall... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, I have been blessed with a wonderful Maid of Honor. I never expected any "duties" from her in particular. I truly just wanted to honor her and have an excuse for her to come along with me dress shopping, venue hunting, menu tasting, etc. Thankfully, she has been very thorough in "traditional duties" because I am pretty clueless as a bride! She has gone above and beyond... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, HELP!! I don't know what to do! One of my two best friends is now pregnant. In and of itself, this is great news but she also happens to be one of my two bridesmaids.

Dear Wedding Maven, I am the matron of honor in my sister’s wedding. My sister and I have never been close. We live on opposite sides of the country, and rarely see each other. Frankly, I’m a little surprised that she asked me to be in her wedding, much less her matron of honor. But, both our parents are gone, and I guess she just wanted someone from her family standing with her. Her... (more)
