Ready or Knot
I met Paul a while ago now. I say met, but I've never actually met the guy (I don't think?) but we've certainly swapped a few messages on Twitter.
What about? Well, my favourite topic of course: weddings. Yep. A dude who talks about weddings.
We first starting conversing when I was looking for someone who had met their partner on FindSomeone.
He put his hand up and soon divulged that he planned to propose to his partner soon. (Squee!)
You see Paul is one of those guys who really, really loves his wife. Not that others don't, but this dude isn't ashamed for the world to know how happy he is - and that's awesome in my books.
Hello team! Apologies for the lack of posts - I've been away overseas and haven't had a spare minute to sit down and write. I've had some great wedding woes submitted and another few topics to discuss so watch this space.
Here's today's woe:
I have a post-wedding woe, we have been married for about four weeks now and everything is great - couldn't be happier....except his ring...we went for a titanium ring off a recommendation from someone and it's already scratched quite a bit - he works in an office and takes it off when he goes to the gym so it's not like he has been abusing it.
Now we are thinking maybe we should replace it and get a different type of metal, but we both feel that it will kind of lose its sentimental value as this was the ring we got married with and with it, it has all the emotions from the day etc etc...so we are at a standstill - do we get a new one to replace the scratched one and potentially have the feeling of it not meaning the same as the old one...or do we stick with the old one and not worry about scratches?
Hello Ready or Knoters! Here's today's wedding woe. It's a bit of a long read but it makes sense in the end!
I'm sure this is one of the most common topics that people ask advice for but I would love to get a point of view from someone completely detached from the situation! It's doing my head in and we're still quite a way off from the wedding!
My fiance is amazing and definitely the best person in the world to me. We are a perfect match and get on so well it always feels like the honeymoon period!
BUT, his mother is not so admirable...my partner grew up without a father and has no link to him at all. He doesn't know where he lives, what he does and I have never seen a photo of him. I think the MIL has painted a pretty negative picture of the father to my partner and she walked out with him when he was just a young baby.
Howdy folks. Here's today's wedding woe and boy-oh-boy it's a DOOZY. I have honestly heard of this happening a number of times so it's definitely a wider issue. Would love to hear your thoughts!
I am getting married in a month and my maid of honour just announced that not only she didn't want to attend my wedding, but she didn't even want to be my friend anymore.
Apparently, what spurred the hate email she sent me a couple of days ago, was that (i) I had chosen a black bridesmaid dress that she found ugly and unflattering (apparently I wanted her to look ugly...); (ii) she couldn't be seated next to her husband (I wanted the bridal party to be seated without partners; I admit, I told her that I would be the one to make the decision); (iii) she couldn't bring her three young children (I had asked her a year ago not to bring them as the venue is very small, and she agreed that she preferred not to bring them anyway as she wanted to enjoy the evening). Following these complaints, she continued on to enumerating my multiple horrible traits (not calling and seeing her enough, making too much money and not spending it, etc).
I guess, staying in touch with a high school friend is bound to turn sour when life paths diverge, but I had hopes we could make it. And I thought a wedding was a great occasion to get reunited again and enjoy each other's company, not complain over futile details such as a dress or a seat... Apparently, she didn't feel the same way and thought that she had to "break up" with me and teach me a lesson (just to clarify, we are both in our 30s...).
Good morning! What's happening out there in wedding land? Drop me a line and let me know. I love hearing from readers - even if it's just some helpful feedback!
Today we've got a GREAT wedding woe. Here goes:
I have a dilemma with my upcoming December wedding and I'm hoping you and readers of this fantastic blog may be able to offer some advice.
I would like to not have bridesmaids and walk down the aisle ALONE.
