The Latest from The Bride’s Diary
- I'm after some advice on how to handle this bridesmaid dilemma. As our wedding is only small (Max 60 guests) my fiancé and I easily agreed on a small bridal party of 2 attendants each. I've already lost 1 bridesmaid as a result of a massive falling out which has us no longer on speaking terms. This was very early in the process so it was an easy 'replace' without feeling like it for the new bridesmaid. Now it is looking more and more likely that my other original bridesmaid (maid of honour) is going to be pulling out as well. We are 9 months out from the wedding and I just don't know what to do. Do I confront her directly for a straight yes/no? And if it's no she's not able to commit, then what do I do about 'replacing' yet another bridesmaid/maid of honour? Any advice would be greatly appreciated at this point.
- So I have a bit of a dilemma. I have asked 4 friends to be my BMs - all are very excited to be a part of my day which is great. A couple of them are trying to get pregnant, but had told me (without even asking them) that they would be stopping trying so that they were no more than 6-7 months pregnant at the wedding or that their baby would be 3-4 months old. I was told by one of my BMs that she was pregnant and due at start of July. However, when she went for her scan she's actually due a few months before my wedding. This wouldn't be such an issue if she hadn't had a pretty bad labour with first bubs which ended in an emergency c-section. They have told her that they want her to try natural this time, but she's pretty certain she'll end up with a c-section. This throws up a few unknowns - she lives regionally which means for the 6 weeks after bubs is born she will not be able to drive and therefore won't be able to make it to things like dress fittings and potentially the hen's party. There's also the facts such as what happens if bubs isn't is as good as her first, bubs won't take a bottle and she'll be really sleep deprived. I am quite an organised person, she is more of "fly by the seat of your pants" person and probably hasn't though of these things. I don't want to be an overbearing bridezilla, but I also don't want any surprises a couple of weeks before my wedding. What do I do?
- My partner and I are considering staying together the night before the wedding. I sleep much better with my partner (we have been living with each other for years) and I just don't know if it's an old tradition thats slowly dying. I wan't to know what others think... Would you sleep with your partner the night before your wedding?
- I am thinking of sending my invites out via email. I am looking at sending out an interactive wedding invite with my own wedding website attached. If I email I know they have gotten it and it will help save money so much money, it will also mean I have all the rsvp's and meal requirements in the one place. I am just not sure if people will find cheap and tacky? What do people think?
