For couples "passionate about pizza."
I often remember hearing family and friends suggesting that someday you will find the one and you will just know.

This past year I have found and am now engaged to my beloved so the journey of engagement is something I am facing at now.

The wife of his best friend suggested (actually, strongly insisted) that we demand a monetary contribution from our guests. My spouse and I disagree. I find this insulting, while he is hell-bent on it! Can we ask without insulting?
The summer of 2014 had me almost getting married -- preparations were in place, rings were purchased and the date was set. But love is hard sometimes, and life doesn't always play along, even with the best intentions.
This is way better than a real wedding.

Once upon a time, etiquette experts would have completely discouraged your daughter of asking for money. Untraditional and tacky, they would have tissed! Rest assured. As a modern manners maven, I know one thing for sure: etiquette evolves based on societal norms.
Artwork is that place where you start your adult married life together. You choose artwork as a couple, and thereby visually diarize this time in your life which means so much. Every single day. Why? Because it's on your wall. Not in a drawer.

Here is the thing -- "brown" is not a derogatory term. It is not a word rooted in oppression, exclusion, bigotry, or hatred of any kind at the social or institutional level. The term is value neutral. It holds no malice, or intent to harm. It is not a powerful reminder of disenfranchisement and racial divisions such as the term"n*****." As wonderful as it is that people want to step up to the plate to help create inclusion and openness, I just wish it was with some context. Instead, get up off your feet when you hear some of the following slurs that are offensive and have been historically directed towards brown people.

My husband is my greatest fan in life. He is constantly encouraging me to chase my dreams, pushing me to face my weaknesses. He inspires me; he balances me. He supports me in everything I do. When you have someone standing beside you, ready to nudge you forward and catch you when you fall, it feels like anything is possible. I'm 27 now, and I still have a lot to learn about married life. But I already know the choice to wed my husband was the greatest decision I've made so far. Being a wife has changed my life in ways I hadn't ever considered.

My ex-husband and I are divorced. It is not amicable. We just co-exist. We are both remarried. My daughter wants us to both walk her down the aisle. I agree, and so does my ex.

This may sound a bit structured, but it will help family and friends who don't see you that often to understand the event and how your special occasion unfolded.
