Dilemma of the day: "My fiance unfortunately lost his grandmother last year. We were originally planning to have our grandmothers as our 'flower women' instead of flower girls. His mum hasn't mentioned anything about how whether it is still fine to have my grandmother be our flower woman which is understandable. We're unsure whether it will be too painful for his family. They say it will be fine but we don't want to cause anyone any sadness... Should we listen to her and go ahead with the idea or maybe think of something else?" #mwdilemma
Dilemma of the Day: "One of my bridesmaids has only recently started dating her new boyfriend. She now wants him to be invited to the wedding but I feel there are other people that mean more to me and my fianceé that we haven't been able to invite due to numbers (and would rather have) than him. Just not sure how to say no without offending her." #MWDilemma
Dilemma of the day: "A friend of mine got married last year and I was the maid of honour. I'm getting married next year and asked my sister in law to be my maid of honour as we've become quite close and my friend to be my bridesmaid. I could tell she was disappointed but I thought she would respect my choice. Now she is making life so difficult by not returning my calls when we try to organise planning days. She's missed a few of my dress fittings. I've tried to ask her about it but she denies that she is upset. Knowing that she is angry is stressing me out and kind of making me angry because it's taking the fun out of planning for my day. It's now at the point where I don't know if I should just not have a maid of honour and have them both be equal bridesmaids.... what should I do?"#MWDilemma
Dilemma of the day: "My fiancé proposed with his grandmother's vintage engagement ring. It's beautiful and so sentimental, but the style is really not me. I'm going to be wearing it for the rest of my life so I really want to show it off. I love what it represents and I'm hoping that over time I'll grow to love the look of it too. Part of me would also like to use the stones but have them reset to something that suits me a little more. Is that rude? What should I do?" #mwdilemma
Dilemma of the day: "I'm getting married next month and recently my family have received news that my 8 year old brother has cancer. My dad passed away of cancer last year also so naturally all of us siblings are very stressed and worried about him. Nurses have told us that the cancer is manageable and he has also only recently started chemo.
One of my siblings has asked if we can put back the wedding, because all of my 5 siblings were a part of the wedding from bridesmaids to groomsmen to paige boys. I personally don't want to change the date as everything is completely paid for and we have family from Europe flying over for the wedding, and because cancer is unpredictable I feel if we were to change it to a later day we could be back where we are now. There is still a chance that my brother could attend but obviously we just don't know.
It's hard to get excited about the wedding with everything going on and trying to be respectful to my siblings. I just want to know what people would do in this situation. Thank you." #mwdilemma
Question of the day: "My partner and I are inviting kids to our wedding, we have two of our own and a lot of our friends have children as well. I'm wondering whether anyone has any good ideas for things to keep them entertained during the wedding. A friend suggested I hire a children's party entertainer and I think it's a fun idea but I still would like things to be as wedding-y as possible. I'm a mum, I get that we have to make compromises but I think hiring a clown or magician is a little too far (and out of my budget). Any other ideas?" #mwquestion
