Can you have a feminist hen/batchelorette party?

I'm getting married next year, and my friends have started asking me what I'd like to do as a batchelorette party. I'm really conflicted about who to invite because a) I'm a staunch feminist and want the least sexist wedding ever BUT b) I've enjoyed the "female space" at other people's parties AND ALSO c) my brother is in my bridal party, where does he fit in?

Cheap and easy frames and prints of wedding photos for gifts

Hi all! For our wedding, we got a disc and rights to all of our photos, but no prints. As the holidays are approaching, we want to get some prints and nice frames to give close family. However, money is tight and we are lazy. What is the cheapest and easiest way to get a dozen or so prints and frames in standard sizes, at a quality level somewhere above we-bought-everything-at-the-dollar-store? Thanks!

Engagement Traditions for Men

The idea of a marker/symbol of engagement appeals to me (as does the idea of tweaking gendered norms). I'm not otherwise terribly ornamentally inclined, so this feels like a good one-exception for her. I've seen suggestions online of "Eventual-wedding-ring on right hand, swap hands at the ceremony", which sounds particularly appealing, though I haven't seen anything consistent about where this might be common or how common it might be.
Within the United States, about how well would this be received/understood? [more inside]

How can I let go and enjoy my own wedding?

My wonderful fiance and I are marrying soon. I ignored portents of wedding drama; we opted to throw a medium-sized wedding with all our extended families, tons of friends, etc. Now I wish we had eloped. Without going into too much explanation, multiple family members have turned our upcoming wedding from an eagerly anticipated fete to one filled with drama, stress, planning, mini-emergencies, and chaos. My fiance and I have both gotten sick. I've been tempted to call it off more than once. Please help. [more inside]

Online Photo Album

Our wedding photographer sent us our original full resolution pictures through Dropbox. I want to put together an online album to share with guests. I usually post pictures via Picassa; is there another platform that would be better? Also, I would prefer to keep the album password protected. Relatedly, I want to print thank-you cards and a wedding album. I have looked into Artifact Uprising and MPix but would love recommendations on print services too. Thanks!

That sweet spot for pretty, affordable Toronto wedding venues

My boyfriend and I just got engaged after being together for four years. Hooray! We're thinking about getting married in June 2017, and we want to do it in or near Toronto, Ontario, with about 95 friends and family members. I've scoured the Internet for venues, asked friends for recommendations, and we've found some decent options but since this is going to cost us a lot of money (though both sets of parents will help out), I want to consider all possible options. We want to find a place where we can do both ceremony and reception (with dinner and dancing), and where the cost of the venue, including food and alcohol (open bar), comes to $13,000 or less.

Parent inviting their friends to our wedding

My fiancé and I are planning on having a smallish wedding, and we are organizing it relatively quick (only 7 months in all). We cut our invite list down to 45 guests and found a perfect reception hall that provides catering (cocktails and sit-down dinner) for a maximum of exactly 45 guests. Yay, perfect! Beautiful location, great prices, and no need to find a caterer. Until his father announced that he is inviting 5 guests . . . . [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]

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]
