Question about Weddings

Any other brides disappointed or angered by best man speech ?

I'd heard of brides and grooms pre approving speeches, to ensure no embarrassing stories get told in front of people's dear old aunties, etc. My husband asked his BM for the speech beforehand but the BM didn't write anything. So we just relaxed and trusted him to not embarrass us. Big mistake. He basically got up at the reception and said he was shocked when my husband told him we were getting married, he tried to talk him out of it (a guy joke... didn't go over very well with the crowd though,) and the "toast" was basically "whether we agree with it or not, here we are..." Everyone assumed he and I hated each other but we weren't involved in any feud I was aware of (until now)... He's just a bitter divorced guy who assumes if his marriage failed, everyone else's is doomed too. What gets me is we didn't even ask him to give a speech. He wanted to. He wanted the platform. He even requested his own special intro music. I don't think I can ever forgive him for doing that. Am I alone in this? When I try searching basically the title of this question I just get a bunch of advice articles on how to give the BM speech.

What are some of the frustrations that couples deal with in wedding planning?

Traditionally the bride's father pays for the wedding and that gives the bride's mother a moral right to organise everything and everyone, something deeply resented by both the happy couple and the groom's parents...

Boyfriend gave me an "engagement ring" but didnt propose...?

Just tell him to follow through with his original plans when you two are ALONE. You don't want to embarrass him. Tell him you want the proposal, not just the ring. Just tell him from your heart how you feel. He will come though. I hope this helps. Best of luck!

Why does my fiance want his dad to be a groomsman in our wedding?

It isn't creepy at all. I think it is a great idea and will probably put your groom at ease. This is his day as well as yours, so if he wants his dad in the wedding, I say go for it. Best of luck

Is it a good idea to propose to a girl in front of her family during Easter dinner?

This is a touchy one. It may open pandoras box. Before you propose, she will need to sit down with mom and explain the situation. Otherwise, you will end up being the bad guy with mom AND girlfriend. Best of luck!

Who pays for the grooms ring?

You both can pay for the bands. But if you pay for it yourself, you have MORE than enough money to get him a simple gold band. I have never heard of the brides parents paying for the rings. Best of luck

What can i wear to a wedding reception

You need a dress. Get one at Goodwill if money's an issue- you have no excuse to show up under-dressed. You can just wear your hair down if you want. Everyone's going to be looking at the bride, so don't worry too much about what you're wearing, but you need to at least look respectable so you don't stick out in a bad way.
