• Are you engaged if you accept a marriage proposal without receiving a ring?

    Best answer: You're engaged once you agree definitely to get married, and agree to start planning whatever kind of wedding you want.

    The ring is merely a tradition/formality, as is a bended-knee proposal. You don't need either to actually get engaged.

  • Wedding Dress: Should I care more about what my mom thinks or my mother in law thinks?

    Simply put my mother in law is paying for my wedding dress, but my mom is super opinionated. I want to please my mom because I know she feels bad about not being able to help out with the wedding as much as my mother in law, but my other in law doesn't have the same taste as I do and I don't want to settle... show more

  • BF bought an engagement ring but wont propose?

    My boyfriend of 6 years bought me a ring. We went to the store together and he showed it to me once the diamond was set and he brought it home.

    My boyfriend of 6 years bought me a ring. We went to the store together and he showed it to me once the diamond was set and he brought it home. He gave it to me but said it wasnt the actual proposal so I can't tell anyone because he wants it to be a nicer moment. We plan to elope for the wedding since he doesn't like crowds of people so for me the only time I can enjoy the happiness and fun of the process is telling people I am engaged with friends. I am more of an introvert so I don't have a ton of friends. I recently moved on to another job and I am moving a bit away in less than a week. We've had the ring for 3 months and he still hasn't "proposed" officially. He wants it to be a good proposal and such. For me, if he wanted that, he should have done it years ago. I know the moment is supposed to be about "us" but I was hoping to feel a little bit of the limelight with the engagement as superficial as that may seem. So now that I am about to move and not be close enough to share news over a nice lunch or dinner, I feel really bummed. I mean, if you have a great story but no one to tell it to, just feels sad. I can't help feeling overwhelmingly disappointed that I may see my friends once a year now and it is causing fights between him and I. We've gone away to another state to a quick weekend vaca, we've visited waterfalls and had great moments that he didn't propose on. I am not sure what to do, I know I am impatient but this is taking too long.

  • Is it a really big deal that i reversed to the traditional wedding vows so my husband said "Obey" and I said "comfort"?

    My husband and I got married recently in a civil ceremony and now my sister-in-law hates me for something I did with our wedding vows. I did most of the organizing and he left me in charge of wedding vows and said to do whatever I want, so we used some from my parents religion. I thought it was sexist that I got... show more
    My husband and I got married recently in a civil ceremony and now my sister-in-law hates me for something I did with our wedding vows. I did most of the organizing and he left me in charge of wedding vows and said to do whatever I want, so we used some from my parents religion. I thought it was sexist that I got the "obey" one, so I just switched them around and he said that one. I didn't think it was a big deal, and my husband didn't even realize until after the wedding when his sister called me a ***** for doing it. He said it wasn't a big deal and tried to calm his sister down, but she hates me now. We had a great honeymoon and he didn't bring it up. But is he just being a good husband, was that a big deal that I did that? I just thought it was sexist that I get that one because I'm the woman, so I let him do that one instead.

  • Who is responsible for paying for a wedding?

    I understand that it has always been the tradition for the brides family to cover the cost of the wedding. But, it has also always been the tradition for a man to pay on dates, hold the door, etc. Very few young men are chivalrous in this way.

    I understand that it has always been the tradition for the brides family to cover the cost of the wedding. But, it has also always been the tradition for a man to pay on dates, hold the door, etc. Very few young men are chivalrous in this way. Oftentimes, women are expected to pay for their portion of the meal when on dates. Personally, I have paid my half for every date past the very first few. That being said, times have certainly changed, however, I was wondering if expecting the brides family to pay for the wedding is an outdated tradition? I really hate to be cheap in this situation, however, weddings are always very costly (average $40,000) and I come from a family of 6 girls. My parents simply cannot afford it even if we get a great deal and pay half of the average price. I am also worried that the grooms family will be somewhat judgmental if we decide to go the less expensive route and spend what is in our price range. Many of them have not met my family or myself and I don't want to come across as tacky. Yet, I am unsure of whether or not they would be more upset if they found out that my side of the family wasn't able to pick up the entire tab. Would it be terrible to split the cost of the wedding with the grooms family?

Idk if this is a thing that people do but I don’t think it’s that weird to include a bride’s friend as a groomsman? Is it unfair of me to think it’s okay for me to pick him to be one of the groomsmen since the groom picks them? What should I do?

  • My fiance acts like a hypocrit... is he wrong?

    Best answer: So its OK for him to tell another guy at work he has seen you naked, but not to admit you two might be connected in a deeper way? Think about that for a moment. Its OK to project you as "easy" but not as marriageable material? I would be offended by his behaviour. Could be you are making plans different... show more

  • My boyfriend proposed?

    Best answer: Don't jump to conclusions, you don't know what kind of ring he's going to get you. Unless he asks you to marry him after you receive the ring then he hasn't proposed yet.
    If he does get you an engagement ring, when your wedding date gets closer you can buy him a wedding band.
