Am I a horrible person if I don't go to my cousin's wedding?

I'm going to have to go alone to the wedding of my much younger cousin, which will cost me a fortune, and where my newly married former flame will me. Is it really bad if I just make up a white lie and not go? [more inside]

Too late to back out of staying in a pricey room for a wedding?

I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding this summer which will take place 30 minutes from my house. The facility has cabins which guests are invited to stay in. Awhile ago the bride told me that she is paying for the wedding party to stay overnight. She asked if my boyfriend would be staying overnight and I said yes, assuming that he would be covered too. I just got an email pay-pal request from her for $80 for my boyfriend's share. [more inside]

Who profits from weddings?

If I'm expecting the traditional American wedding (registry, rehearsal dinner, lavish ceremony, reception) industry to expand over the next few years, where would I invest my money? My experience was mostly with local people, but I am sure there is some behemoth out there who's bread and butter is based on that style of people getting married.

How to avoid traumatic encounter at wedding?

The sister of my boyfriend of 10 years! (yes i know...) is getting married and her close friend is likely to attend. This close friend and my boyfriend dated briefly before we met, so over 10 years ago - everyone was very young. About 5 years ago my boyfriend slept with her one night and I found out about this 2 years ago and was extremely hurt. I have thought a lot about it and I feel like i don't want to put myself through encountering her at the wedding. More details inside - apologies for the length. [more inside]

Small San Francisco Restaurants for Buyout

We are planning a wedding! One thought I have is to buyout a small restaurant for the reception or even ceremony+reception. Do you know any restaurants that are small-ish (and thus may be semi-affordable for buyout) with excellent food & drink, nice decor and hopefully a nice outdoor space in the back? We are thinking we will likely have something like 60 guests and probably not a full band -- maybe some type of strings grouping. Fairly neighborhood and cuisine agnostic, and would also be open to Marin. [more inside]

Should I request off work to attend a friend's wedding shower?

Last week, I received an invitation to a good friend's couple wedding shower that's happening a week from now. It happens to be on the same day that I work. I just started a new job and the company is short-staffed currently so I feel bad about requesting a day off to go to her shower. I'm reluctant about asking for a day off because I'm afraid that the manager might get mad at me. Plus, I wasn't sure if a week would be too short of a notice. Do you think I should try to request off to go to the shower or do you think it's not a big deal? [more inside]

Host Liquor Liability Insurance

In the midst of wedding planning and I am not sure how to resolve this particular issue. We finally found and booked a venue that we like and where we could bring in an outside caterer. Our caterer happens to be a BYO restaurant. Our venue allows us to serve alcohol but requires proof of insurance. Particularly, Host Liquor Liability insurance for $500,000. Since the caterer is a BYO, he does not have this coverage. How do I go about getting the required insurance? I know there are third party insurance providers. Is this where I should turn to? [Located in Philadelphia, the venue is a township owned building, the wedding date in Summer 2015]

How can we make our wedding celebration at a bar more...weddingy?

About a month after our small civil family-only wedding ceremony, we're throwing a party at a bar so we can celebrate/get drunk/dance with about 50-60 of our friends. Open bar and our playlist: done and done. We'd like to put some creative, inexpensive touches on this event to make it feel more like a wedding and less like a big birthday party. (Inexpensive is key. We love the idea of a photo booth for example, but they're rather pricey to rent.) I'm hopelessly uncreative. Any ideas?
