The modern masses continue to be drawn to storybook tales of a fair maiden and her Prince Charming. So if you are looking for some dreamy, whimsical, and outright magical wedding ideas, then take a journey through our favorite fairy-tale-inspired weddings.
** I couldn't find a current picture online.... this one is last year's but image is the same**
Let me just start with a little background: I'm 28. My boyfriend is 34. We'd like to get married sometime in the next two years or so. We've been together for 6.5-ish years now. My question is, and my boyfriend thought I should pose it here on sugar, when are you too old to ask the father of the bride (my dad) to pay or help pay for the wedding? I know it's seen as traditional, but I feel like I'm kind of old at this point to ask for help. We probably wouldn't get engaged for another year or so since we'd have to save up for a ring, and although the wedding that I want is pretty small I kind of feel 30-ish is old enough to pay for my own wedding, even if that means delaying it for another couple of years or so (recession = having trouble finding a job). Anyways, any thoughts are appreciated.
So, I recently went to a wedding of a family friend of mine and the most unexpected thing happened. A guest at the wedding (during dinner) proposed to his girlfriend in the middle of the reception!!! I don't know about you, but I was in shock when i saw this happening. After she said yes, the bride and her bridesmaid proceeded to take them to the lobby where i was told the bride told them that was unacceptable and that it was her day and they should leave the party.
Now, if that was my wedding, I would've probably done the same thing and told them to get the heck out, but i had some friends who said it wasn't a big deal and the bride overreacted. The reason why I'm mortified by the situation is because 1) She and the groom (and their families!) paid for an amazing wedding and reception 2) the guests were HER guests 3) it's HER day
i just think it's tasteless for someone to do that on someone's else's day! They're completely stealing her thunder on when all the attention is suppose to be devoted to the bride and groom. But what do you think? Is my reaction (and the bride's) completely out of line?
Which color bridesmaid dress would be best? I love both, but which would look best in pictures and create a color scheme for the wedding?
So here's a new element are the flowers... this is basically my bouquet.
Yea-- I got engaged yesterday! I'm so excited and now a bit overwhelmed with everything I've got to do.. have to remember to breathe and enjoy.. haha.. but so very happy! :-)
