    Opinions on bridesmaids buying their own dresses? I am having an all you can eat, all you can drink wedding in Italy and I have 9 bridesmaids, I did not intend to have this many I only chose a couple of friends but I had my family telling me, you should have your nieces they are family they are more important. I felt to awkward to say no. The only problem is I can’t afford 9 dresses as I haven’t even started saving for my own dress yet and my wedding is less than a year away. My MOH told me that she’s happy to pay and she thinks it’s not a problem asking others but the others have already assumed I’m paying and have said things to me like you don’t have to buy our dresses yet, or are sure everyone can make the wedding before you pay for the dresses etc. I did think that everyone can choose their own dresses, choose their own style , also so they know how much they can afford i they can choose the price, as long as they stick to the colour I want. I did feel a bit guilty as my wedding is abroad that they have expenses as flights and hotels but I did make sure my wedding wasn’t in seasonal time so it would be cheaper for everyone. Also the night before the wedding I’ve booked and paid for all the bridesmaids and myself to stay at a villa the day and night before the wedding as I didn’t want to make them pay for extra accommodation on top of the one they are having for the rest of their stay during my wedding, luckily this wasn’t too expensive and only for one night. Opinion?

    My best friend is getting married this year and asked me to be her maid of honor! While excited as i am to stand next to her on her and her husband s day, I m left with planning her bridal and bachelorette party. She put together a list and of women she wants at her bridal shower, and in total it s about 35 women which is too many to cram into a house. I ve decided to rent a small space for all of us to have fun and celebrate the bride. With the bachelorette party I have decided to do a pole dancing class in our city as well as a few other places. In total to cover the cost of the class and the bridal shower costs it s looking to be a little over $600.00. Should I cover the whole 600 myself or ask the other 4 bridesmaids to split the cost with me? If I split it how should I ask the question? The places would need the money asap for a deposit for the dates I ve picked out that work with everyone which would be in October of this year. Another fun fact is the bride had asked all of us bridesmaids to pay for our makeup which was $50.00 each while she covered the other $100 for hair and other things, and one of the maids threw a fit for having to cover 50 herself. With that reaction I m scared to even ask! Please any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

  • Is it bad to ask them to pay for their own meal?

    Best answer: Absolutely unacceptable.
    If you invite anyone to join you for a celebration meal, you are providing the meal. There is no grey area here- you pay for it, if you are inviting them.

    I am asking my sister to be my maid of honor but because I don t have closer friends I m not planning on having bridesmaids. My fiance got upset by this because he feels his sister should have a place in the wedding especially if my sister is. I am not friends with his sister and we don t have a relationship. She will be getting married in a couple of months and I was not asked to be in her wedding. He said its different because we were not married or engaged at the time they got engaged and I am not in her or her fiances family. I feel like this is extremely unfair. I don t feel like I should be made to feel bad about this. So I guess what I am asking is should I feel obligated to ask her?

  • Is it unreasonable to ask one of my fiance’s daughters to be bridesmaid because one is biologically his and the other isn’t?

    My fiance and I are starting to plan our wedding and he’s now upset because I only want one of his daughter’s to be a bridesmaid. I’m closer with one than I am the other. Of his two daughters, one is biologically his, the other isn’t. The one I want to ask is biologically his. The elder isn’t his, but he’s known since his ex told him that she was pregnant, as he’d been out of the country weeks when she discovered she was pregnant. He fell in love with his eldest the moment he heard her heartbeat and didn’t care that he wasn’t her father. She however isn’t aware. They have never told her, as they don’t feel like they have to. Oddly enough, her mother is now married to her actual biological father. My fiance is really mad that I want to only ask one of the girls, even though I’m only close to one. The elder one and I don’t get along, she’s incredibly close to my fiance and doesn’t like anyone else getting close to him. I’ve tried but we don’t have anything in common. He’s arguing that I’m choosing his biological child over his nonbiological child which I suppose part of me is in a way. I did make more of an effort with the younger one, as I went out of my way to try and make a connection with her.

    Firstly, I have absolutely nothing against my sister in law and her choice to wear the hijab. I’ve known since she started dating my brother that she came from a Muslim family, but at the time she’d become a little disillusioned with her faith but after a difficult year following the birth of my nephew, she choose to embrace her faith once more. My brother has been really supportive of her choice and is very protective of her, he was to start with at they’ve had comments over the fact she’s not white but he’s now even more so. The problem is my fiance’s Family (not him, he likes her and actually brought her back a hijab from his last work trip abroad as he wanted to show her that he isn’t like his family). Simply put, they racist and very pro banning the hijab and have regularly used slurs to refer to my sister in law. They’ve been told several times by my fiance not to, but they just don’t care. I suggested uninviting them but he doesn’t want to upset his mum by uninviting his bothers and dad (they’re really the problem). His mum suggested that we maybe ask my sister in law if she could just not wear the hijab for the day. But asking her that feels like I’m just I’m dismissing her faith. However at the same time I don’t want her to feel unwelcome at the wedding, or for there to be a fight.

But they have 2 sons (my cousins), each son has a wife and a child so that's 6 people to invite. I only see the sons at weddings and funerals. Before my grandmother passed away in January I saw them 4 years ago in my grandfathers funeral. They never once made the effort to see their grandmother in hospital for months and I just don't have any respect for them but they are technically family. I am torn as I know it will cause waves in the family if I invite my aunt and uncle and not their sons. Does anyone have any advice please?
