So I got engaged about six months ago and I chose my best friend, Amy, to be my maid of honor. We've known each other since we were in elementary school and have been friends for more than 15 years. She was really excited and said yes immediately.
Amy's getting married in October. I'm not in her wedding party because she and her fiance decided to only ask their siblings to stand up with them (she has a ton of friends and said she didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings, which I respected). Originally she and her fiance had invited around 100 people, including me and my fiance, but because of COVID, they decided to move it to her parents'
backyard and cut the guest list. She apologized profusely and told me they had to limit it to 25 people for safety reasons, but my fiance and I would still be able to watch the ceremony via livestream.
I was pretty sad about this, but I assumed the only guests were family at that point, so I said not to worry about it and that I understood. But yes... keep reading on reddit ➡
This happened about two weeks ago. I (22F) have been dating my wife (fiancee at the time of the incident) (23F) for 8 years now. After corona hit, we lost several deposits, and realized we were basically married anyway, so why not just have a small ceremony and make it official already. (Before I get crucified for having a party during corona, we only had eight people in attendance, including us and our "venue" (aka our backyard) was spacious enough to seat people who weren't already quarantined together 6 feet away from each other (and masks were required).)
Anyway, I asked for a really lowkey bachelorette party involving marathoning a couple movies w/ my two best friends, ordering in from my favorite restaurant and playing card games. However, when it came time for the party, I walked in to her apartment and EVERYTHING was penis-themed. Penis cake, penis balloons, a home-made game that was literally pinning a dick on a half-naked guy (like pin the tail on the donkey). I was shocked... keep reading on reddit ➡
My childhood best friend got engaged two years ago and was suppose to get married this July. Obviously covid caused her to push her wedding to 2021. Planning her shower started off just fine. The rest of her wedding party agreed to help me pay for the shower along with her mother. I put a large deposit down on the shower venue thinking everyone was going to help financially but people started pushing me off and giving me excuses. When it was clear she was going to need to reschedule her wedding, she decided she wanted to change everything including her shower venue. They problem is the deposit I put down is nonrefundable and I simply can’t afford to to forget that money and start over. She also wants me to get a new dress for her wedding, I paid $375 for the dress I have not had it altered yet.
When she confronted me about all these changes I told her she was being unreasonable. I’m not rich by any means. She then said she would understand if I decided not to be in her wedding. I am... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is rather urgent because the wedding is so soon and I'm terrified that I'm being a bridezilla so outside perspective would be greatly appreciated thanks. Apologies in advance for typos and swearing I'm very emotional.
My (26f) maid of honor (29f) has been an older sister figure to me since I was in diapers. I go to her for advice, and she would frequently tell me things I needed to hear before I knew I needed to hear them. She's wise but stubborn (A major Taurus)
The issue involves another bridesmaid (21m). He is the one who introduced me to my future hubby. He's been a huge emotional support for me and one of the most polite, gentle, and sensitive people in my life. He is a cis-man who is gnc but possibly the most feminine creature on the planet and I asked him to be a bridesmaid. He cautiously accepted, constantly expressing concerns that his existence in the role could complicate things, idgaf. I told him he could wear a suit that matched the color of the bridesmaid dresses,... keep reading on reddit ➡
TLDR: I am the maid of honor to my friend of 10 years and her fiancé is a Trump supporter who believes that businesses/people should legally be allowed to discriminate against gay and trans people under the guise of “religious freedom”. How can I be the maid of honor in a wedding to someone who doesn’t support my rights?
Some back story. Olivia (29F) and I have been close for the duration of our 10 year friendship and have never really had much drama. She started dating Aaron (39M) almost three years ago and their wedding is scheduled for this October. He is conservative and a Trump supporter who will vote for him again in November, while I’m liberal and gay and will vote for Biden/Harris. Olivia works in the public health sector and has also been liberal/left-leaning for as long as I’ve known her, but there have been subtle manifestations of his conservative influence, like when they tried to insist that I wear a dress and shave my legs for the wedding. I am masculine presenting and... keep reading on reddit ➡
My friend and I (met in college) had been best friends for a few years, and she asked me to be a maid of honor in her wedding. She had two MOHs, one of whom was a childhood best friend so I was "second". This didn't bother me because I was just honored and excited to be part of her big day.
I fulfilled all of the MOH duties, planned an engagement party, planned an awesome bachelorette weekend, and helped her with various wedding planning activities. She had a huge bridal party, and everyone was allowed to bring dates, so a couple months before the wedding I asked her if it was okay if I invited this guy I was dating. He was great, and she had never met him because she moved a few months before. We had talked about him a lot and she told me she was excited to meet him.
After I asked her she freaked out on me, told me I was a terrible friend for even thinking I would be allowed to invite a date, my attention needed to be fully around her the whole weekend. "Why would I expect her to... keep reading on reddit ➡
My (F26) older sister (F28) has made me maid of honour for her wedding in one month and half sister (F21) is throwing a fit.
So for background my sister Laura and I were raised by our mom without a dad for the first 5ish years of my life. It was just the 3 of us until my mom met my step dad. They got married and had our little sister, Karrie not long after. My step dad is an awesome guy. Before he came along Laura, mom and I lived in a tiny apartment with nothing much but second hand items and each other, but we were happy because we had a roof over our head and food on the table.
My step dad has an excellent job so once they married and had Karrie we moved into a nice big house, a mansion compared to our apartment, and started getting nice gifts at Christmas time and birthdays. This is what Karrie grew up with, and whereas we grew up with a lot of it too I don’t think it affected us as bad because we remember what it’s like to be frugal and to not have much. My mom to this day is s... keep reading on reddit ➡
First, I'd like to start by saying that she's been my best friend since we were 5. I'm also good friends with her fiance(M 21), who I went with to help select the ring. When she told me that she was getting married, she also told me that she wanted me to be her maid of honor. since I was more or less expecting it I was elated for her and immediately accepted. The wedding is sometime during the fall. Here's where the problems start. My bff and her fiance are from very Christian, "purebred" American families. I am not a Christian nor am I an American. Her mom had always been accepting of me and never questioned our friendship, same goes for her fiance's parents, who I've actually spent a lot of time with.
When she told them, in front of me, that she'd asked me to be the maid of honor and that I'd accepted, they're first reaction was exchanging uneasy looks. They then tell her that they needed to discuss the whole thing clearly before they decided and asked her to make sure she wasn't c... keep reading on reddit ➡
My (24F) and my fiancé (31F) are getting married fall of next year. I am having 3 people in my bridal party: a close friend (who is also my brothers gf and basically family) my cousin and my future sister in law.
My future sister in law is 31, doesn’t drive and lives 3 hours away from us. Due to needing help planning and dress fittings and what not I decided to have my friend as my maid of honour. Not only does she live up the road but in general we are closer and I can count on her the most. When my sister in law found out she told me that she refuses to be in the wedding and that it is bullsh*t I didn’t choose her to by my maid of honour.
I honestly didn’t even want a bridal party because I knew it was going to be petty drama. My fiancé doesn’t know she said she doesn’t want to be in the wedding. I know that my fiancé’s parents will also be upset by this. AITA for not making her my maid of honour?
Edited to add: even though we are lesbians my SIL never expected to be on my FI s... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (28F) am getting married early next spring. I have a friend, B (27F) who I’ve asked to be my MOH. We’ve been close friends since the beginning of high school, and I don’t have any sisters, so it’s quite important to me that she be at my side as I tie the knot.
B has never really been in touch with her feminine side- we’re sort of yin and yang in that regard! She wore a dress to prom junior year, and that’s the last time I’ve seen her in one. After that, she wore suits to every event that required formal wear. I’m not going to lie, it annoys me a little, but only because I know how beautiful she looks when she puts the effort in!!
I’ve put a lot of time into planning out my wedding. I’ve hired quite an expensive photographer, and I really want to make sure I end up with some beautiful pictures I can keep forever. Part of that involves making sure the bridal party matches nicely. B and a couple of my other bridesmaids accompanied me to go wedding dress shopping a... keep reading on reddit ➡
