I just met with a couple who is getting married later in the year. They are lovely people who chose most of the music for their reception. This will tie my hands a bit when it comes to taking requests, but this is perfectly fine with me.
If my heart's chosen one -- who should probably hurry up -- attempts to propose to me in any of these ways, I will kick him out of the house.
Recently I taught a group of engaged interfaith couples about the Jewish holidays. After the lecture, I changed the topic, turned the tables, and asked them a question--What's been the biggest interfaith challenge in your relationship so far?
All of the mothers have opinions, all of them have ideas, all of them have criticism, but they all also have something else, an unbreakable will to love their son or daughter, regardless of if they choose roses or peonies for the centerpieces.
The global wedding market is now a $300 billion industry. And behind all those silk covered buttons and wedding cupcakes, lies a goldmine of killer apps, wearables and platforms.
Congratulations! Your baby's engaged! You may be wondering, what do I do now? Traditionally, there were very specific duties for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom.
You and your partner have a unique relationship. So why would you want to have the same marriage everyone else has?
Never send an email that says "What do you charge?" or any other form of that question. Sure, you need to know the costs to see if you can even afford the vendor -- I get it. But you aren't picking up a pair of shoes here.

You can't invite a former boyfriend or girlfriend to your wedding if their presence on your big day will upset your fiancé. That's just a hard and fast rule and you're not allowed to break it.
When I look on Facebook and see all of the wonderful comments and likes on my 2012 wedding photos, I'm thinking, "Dang. I wish I could have invited her" and "Crap. He is such an awesome friend/party guest/cool dude. I wish he could have come."
If they aren't registered anywhere, that is code for: Give us money. Odds are, you will go to the reception and see a card box, which is where you drop off a card that should have a check in it. That vacuum that you think they need? It doesn't fit in a card box for a reason.
Wedding checklists abound, but keeping on top of yours can be hard when you're dealing with other stuff like, you know, having a well-rounded life that involves hanging with friends and doing things other than obsessing over floral arrangements.
I must confess that once upon a time, I dreaded weddings with a lot of little people in attendance. And by "little people," I'm talking about wedding guests under the age of 10.
My advice for the brides? Stop trying to demand your groom to chime in. He picked you, he proposed, he's done. Otherwise, don't complain when you wind up with fire-breathing, car crushing robots at your reception with x-box games available during cocktail hour.
