Dear Wedding Maven I’m getting married next month and I’m a little concerned about a few of my friends. These friends seem to have given up their real lives in favor of living on Facebook and Twitter. They’re constantly updating their status and sending out Tweets. I like Facebook, too, but they seem to think that everything they do deserves a status update. Which brings me to, my... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, I need your advice regarding inviting co-workers! I know most people say that unless you socialize with them outside of work, you should not invite them, but I work for a small company and have become quite close to a couple of people. If I invite just a couple, then there are several that will get extremely upset (high school behavior in 40-plus year olds!). But I... (more)

Dear Ask the Experts, What's the rule of thumb one should use for cost when purchasing a wedding gift? I just heard that it's the cost of two plates at the reception. But how does one know what the cost of two plates is? Especially if one is completely ignorant on the costs of such things? Signed, Frequent Wedding Guest Arianna of Iris Fields says: You are not alone when being totally... (more)

Dear Maven, My fiancé and I would like to keep our upcoming wedding small and intimate, inviting just the family and friends that will really make our day great. Additionally, that's about as far as our budget will go. Our issue involves a few acquaintances who know about our upcoming wedding and fully expect to be invited. While once closer to us (we even met at their house), they are no... (more)

A few extra guests could mean the difference between an open bar and boxed wine. Ready for the most stretched metaphor you will hear this month? Your wedding’s guest list is like the world’s...

Special to OneWed by Robbin Montero of A Dream Wedding Tough decisions For some brides a sudden burst of tearful protest from an infant is just a reminder of the familial love surrounding them on their special day. For others and their guests, even soft cooing from a baby is distracting and annoying. Your wedding guests want to hear the vows you and your new partner in life will recite on... (more)

Dear Wedding Maven, My ex-boyfriend and I met through our parents; they’ve been friends a long time. I recently received an invitation to his wedding, as did my parents. They’re going, but I can’t decide if I should. We were pretty serious at one point, and everyone, including us, thought we would get married one day. I’m the one who called it off. Should I go? Signed, The... (more)

Hi there, Following my column a few weeks ago about dress codes for wedding guests, I got this very short email: Can a guest wear white to a wedding? First, let me just say how much I love the succinct nature of this question. I’d love to be just as short, but then, you know, I wouldn’t really have a job. I’m from the South and I thought it was a universally known rule that... (more)
