    My nephew, who I'm not very close to and who lives in southern California, just got married several months ago. I was not able to attend the out-of-town wedding. A month after the wedding, I sent the couple a wedding card and enclosed a check with a sizable amount. I also stated on the card that I was sorry for not being able to come to the wedding.and sending a check to help start their future. A few weeks later, I got a thank you card written by the bride stating, "Thank you for coming to our wedding and for the gift." Obviously, I did not attend the wedding hence the mailed check. I feel they did not read the sentiment on the card and just saw the fat check. They've recently moved 2 hours away and have invited for a housewarming party. Should I just let this slide or say something at the upcoming get-together?

  • Diamonds keep falling out of my engagement ring?

    Diamonds keep falling out of my engagement ring?

    Best answer: You need to take the ring to a qualified jeweler to have the stones tightened and any missing ones replaced. You can get an estimate before you agree to have any work done.

I don’t know if I should marry someone who is so secretive and doing these things.

    I have mostly male friends, so it was only natural for me to ask them to stand with me. We picked our wedding parties about 2 weeks ago, and we ended up with me having 4 boys and 2 girls and her having an all-female party minus her brother. Now I in particular don't know what to do. Was it a bad choice having mostly men? I can't go around saying "This is John, he's my bridesmaid" because that would just sound awkward. And how do we plan things, like what can everyone wear/do that won't make my boys feel emasculated? And what about getting ready? Does everyone change together? The wedding itself will be in July. Any feedback/suggestions would be helpful.

  • Why did my fiancé's mother add extra smaller diamonds to enhance my fiancé's engagement ring?

    Best answer: I agree with another person who answered and said to pick your battles. Did mom do a nice thing by adding the diamonds from a pair of earrings to her daughter's engagement ring? Well, yes she did. But, did your fiancee ask mom to do this? The only way to know would be to ask her. But, asking that question could... show more
    Best answer: I agree with another person who answered and said to pick your battles. Did mom do a nice thing by adding the diamonds from a pair of earrings to her daughter's engagement ring? Well, yes she did. But, did your fiancee ask mom to do this? The only way to know would be to ask her. But, asking that question could bring about a pretty nasty argument. Personally, I would have talked to my fiance before letting my mother add diamonds to the engagement ring. Since this discussion didn't take place and presumably you don't want to rock the boat, let it go. How were you told about the ring having these diamonds added to it? How did you react to seeing the enhanced ring? I'm guessing you didn't make a fuss or say anything that would bring an end to the engagement. So, it's too late now to say anything negative. But, at some point when the two of you are married and settling in, be aware of your mother-in-law's influence on her daughter. If she constantly is butting in and trying to change things like the colours in the apartment or house, having her daughter change the china pattern to one that the two of you didn't choose, or maybe weighing in on when the two of you are ready to be parents, then you need to step up and talk to your now wife and the two of you together approach mom and nicely tell her that while her views are important, that the two of you will make the decisions.
    Right now, if your fiancee is happy and you feel that you can accept the revised ring, then let it go and don't make a fuss over it. Hopefully, your fiancee's mother did this as a gesture of goodwill and in no way was saying anything about the ring not being grand enough for her daughter. She just had these earrings that she wasn't wearing and thought it would be nice to add them to the ring. It's too late to make a fuss over the situation and maybe this is a learning curve for the two of you on how to adjust to having in-laws and how they can interfere where it wasn't really necessarily in the best interest of the couple. Let it go and move on. There will be other times where speaking up is more important.

In the meantime, my 16 yr old son whine was living with his father made bad choices and went to jail. I wanted to hire an attorney to get him out. Fiancé said no, be needs to sit in there and learn a lesson. (I know this would not be the case I’d it was his son) Within the same couple of days, the fridge money came. I took all $2500 and got my kid out of jail and hired and attorney. That was two months ago. Fiancé calls manufacture, they send him a copy of the check I obviously cashed and said I never got. I’m at work. He’s at home. I know he knows. I feel awful I lied. What do I do? I would love to go just stick my head in the sand.

    Best answer: Okay, this is a lot of drama that you don't need to deal with. Did you send this woman an invitation? If so and she has not sent in her RSVP card, then you need to call her to find out if she is in fact attending the reception. If she can't give you a direct answer, then you don't put her on the seating plan. You might discreetly mention to her that her boyfriend will be sitting at the head table and that you will seat her at a table that has the girlfriends/wives of the other groomsmen. That should rattle her nerves a bit. But, she might not say that she is attending the reception and save you the time of fitting her into the seating plan. Don't worry about her not attending the wedding, some things you just cannot control. If she is rude enough to pull a stunt like this, don't dignify it with a response. It will look bad for her when others see her at the reception and know that she didn't attend the wedding. Hopefully they will ask her why she wasn't there. You have enough to worry about and take care of with the wedding planning. Don't spend another moment worrying about this situation. Find out if she is going to attend the reception, that's all you need to do. All you need is a yes or no and that's it. Let this insecure nut case fend for herself.

    I'm a guest at a close relative wedding. Thing is I'm an introverted who has been living a very isolated (no complaints mind you)life for many years, I have no experience with weddings and parties. I don't like dancing and actually suck when I try. The worst part is that I'm invited just for being a very close relative, my parents will be there too, but I don't get along with anybody else since my nuclear family was always isolated from the rest of the bigger family and when we interacted, it wasn't good, there are too many long dated resentments. I was at two other relatives weddings prior and had a dreadful time, I completely avoided the dance floor and even small chat with my older relatives were a drag. I naviagted through the ceremony and dinner because everyone was sitting but the moment the dancing started i didn't know what to do, must of the people left to dance and even my parents standed up to chat around, in a moment I was in my sit completely alone in the big dinner saloon and I felt like a failure, situations like that drove me to never try again but I cannot avoid this wedding. I cannot drop out since I already confirmed my presence and it would make my mum happy, but I don't want to have a bad time particularly because I think it's rude to the grooms. Sorry for the long post. Please, help. thanks!

I told him that I was going to have to break the news to somehow, but he doesn't want me to. He suggest we send the invitation "late" so the invite will arrive at their mail box after our wedding, and claim that there was a delayed at the post office... how is that even going to work? Don't ppl send out invite like a month or two ahead. Their not going to believe this. Should I just tell them that they are not invited, bc this just seems like a cowards way out.

    What I'd like to know is who pays for the Bridesmaids dress?! I have heard that Bridesmaids are supposed to pay for their own?! However to me this seems very bizarre. Since I have been asked, to a event that isn't mine, even though it's amazing, I'd have thought those paying for the Bride and Groom's wedding, or if it's themselves paying, then they pay for all suits, dresses - whatever is required for their day?! It's like going to a party and having to pay to be there, or paying towards the catering, balloons - whatever the person wants at their party, guests have to pay. Seems odd and doesn't sit well with me. Also, if the Bride wants a dress that is way out of someone's price range and something they'd never wear again (likely, as a Bridesmaid dress is different to a general guest at a wedding + it's something that the Bride is choosing, so it's not like I am choosing a dress for myself, with my own taste in mine) if all of the above applies, it's very unlikely I'd be OK with footing the bill for dress I don't like at all, and know I will not wear ever again. Final reasons why I am asking this is because Bridesmaids also have the role of organising the Hen Do with the MOH, so there inevitably will be costs to that too. Paying for our own part of it etc... and the same for having the buy the B&G a wedding present. So a lot of expenses - surely all of this can't be expected!?
