1. My fiance and I get married at short notice and have no time for the wedding registration. How can we tell our guests if they are doing well?

Whether you want a gift at your wedding, the guests will get an independent. However, if you prefer cash or checks, there is a way to contain the information in the wedding invitation itself. The best thing to do is tell your guests what you are going to spend this money on. That does not mean they are snoopy; In fact, it is for their knowledge, where their contribution is guided by the support of the newlyweds. So, take it into your invitation that you do not want a gift from the guests, but instead would like to have cash for a honeymoon, house renovation, savings for a new baby, new car, school loan, all debts, or even wedding bills. This way, you do not sound rude to ask for money.

2. My fiance and I have planned when we both our families insist on a huge wedding. How can we have an intimate wedding with only a few people as witnesses without offending others?

A marriage is sacred to two people deep in love. For others it is a declaration of love and commitment, which they would like to belong to. Do not give your families and close friends the chance to witness your association, it will hurt you very much. They will not allow you to be a part of this journey that you are going to take together. So, doing the right thing is to be honest with them and be clear that you are not looking for a generous wedding. Instead, you want an intimate wedding with family members and close friends. At least in this way, they will be part of your celebration without you having to go through it without their love and support.

3. My future mother-in-law and I have a hard time resolving an argument. I would like the sample dinner and reception to be vegetarian. However, she insists that guests will not like this idea. What am I doing? I do not want to ruin things between us, but on the other hand you want to stand up for my convictions.

Rescuing animals is a good thing, and I can understand what you are going through. This is your wedding, and you want to be able to make the decisions without telling what to do. The solution is simple – talk to your future mom-in-law to the menu for the rehearsal dinner as it is traditionally the responsibility of the groom’s family. And as far as the front desk is concerned, you can plan the menu as it is traditionally the responsibility of the bride. It’s a win-win resolution if you ask me.

4. Guests attending the wedding must fly for our wedding. Are we expected to pay for the bridal party airfare? We are ready to pay for a very special couple, but not for all. Will it insult others?

Destination weddings are fun and are becoming popular. It is sweet of you that the bridal party can participate without dissuading them financially. If there are a few people you know, the journey can not afford, they have the opportunity to reject. However, if you are so keen on them at your wedding, you can offer to pay the flight for now, and consider it as your gift to them. Just ask them not to call them others.

5. After the ceremony, we plan to take our pictures and then go directly to the reception. In consequence, if we do not personally welcome the guests, will they be offended?

The guests have a lot of trouble to visit the wedding of a couple. It is very important that the bride and groom greet their guests and thank them for taking part. If you feel that you do not have enough time to meet you personally, move things in your schedule. Your guests will not remember which flowers were used for the decoration or which band played at the reception. What they will remember is that you have recognized their presence at your wedding.

6. My fiance and I get married in Bora Bora. Many of our guests still have to RSVP, and I am freaking out as it is a week overdue. More than half of the guests did not reply. Should I call them or assume that they are not coming?

There are risks in such situations. On the one hand, you can assume that they will come and make sure there are food and seats for them. Or on the other hand you can pay them off and have unexpected guests at the wedding. What should I do? It’s easy. Call these people how you want to know what your last head count will be. If they are not reachable over the phone, leave a voicemail or send an email. Even after all this, if you get no response, assume that they will not come because no one will spend so much on a destination wedding and do not call to confirm in the first place.

7. My fiance does not have a huge family like mine and is sad that not many people will sit on their side during their ceremony. How can I make them feel better?

In Christian ceremonies, the groom’s family sits on the right and the bride’s family on the left. Many couples may follow this tradition, but some choose non-traditional seating for an uneven gourmet bar. Why do not you suggest that instead of sitting a side, the guests sit on both sides since it is not really important? On the day of the wedding two families will become one. So, it does not matter where everyone sits.

Your friends can share the responsibilities, share the toast and make this day an unforgettable one.

10. One of my bridesmaids told me that she was pregnant. What should I do? Shall I ask her not to be my bridesmaid? Is that rude

Yes, of course this is rude. Once you have asked someone to be your bridesmaid or maid, you can not undo it. Yes, she will be great at your wedding. Yes, it will throw your lineup on the altar and upload photos. But take a moment to think about what it means to your friend if you have asked them to return now. You can easily find maternity bridesmaid dresses in the color that you have chosen for the bridesmaids. As far as photographs are concerned, you can either hide them with certain poses or use this opportunity to play them.

Just because a person marries a second time, does not mean that she does not deserve a gift from the people she wished would visit her wedding. This is a very special day for her, and the fact that this thought even came to mind is abysmal. All the circumstances aside, taking part in a wedding automatically means taking a meaningful gift for the couple.

14. My son marries and asked us to help them with a few wedding expenses. Are the parents of the groom to contribute to the wedding expenses?

To each his own. Times have changed, and so have the traditional rules and labels of the weddings. There are many things that the groom and his family are responsible for rings, gifts for companions, bachelor parties, honeymoon issues, probate dinner, out-of-town guest expenses and much more. Depending on how much contribution is already made by your side (the parents) for the wedding, you can have an honest conversation with your son as early as possible. Many times the couples take the responsibility to pay for their wedding. So, everything depends on how much you are willing to do, compared to how much you have already invested.

When it comes to weddings, it is natural to have second thoughts about how to act, think, or even make sense of certain situations. But the key to tackle these things is to take a step at a time. Knowing what is right is always in your heart. You just have to listen and follow.
