How do I banish these bitter feelings?

Long story short - I'm getting married next September (Yey). I live in Canada but I'm originally from England so two of my Bridesmaids are English. One Bridesmaid, A, is my very best friend from growing up, we've known each other since we were 2. I travelled to England for her wedding a couple of years ago and there was never any question that she'd do the same for me. [more inside]

My fiance wants to reschedule our wedding (again)

I need advice on a) what to do, and b) how to process my feelings. My fiance and I have been engaged for a year. Our original plan was to have a traditional wedding in June 2015. We decided that it was too much and we wanted to elope. 3 weeks ago, we set our "wedding date" for December 18th. Today my fiance told me that he felt depressed (he sometimes gets pretty bad seasonal depression) and stressed out, and that if we get married now, he's not going to enjoy it at all. He wants to reschedule again. [more inside]

Can we use uber for wedding photos or do we need to hire a driver?

For our upcoming March nuptials in Philadelphia the fiancée and I are planning to take photos before the ceremony with just the two of us and the photographer. We have no wedding party and plan to take family photos at the venue. For the 2+ hours we wanted to take photos as a couple at some spots around the city but we're wondering about transportation options - can we use uber to avoid hiring a sedan or other driver? Will an uber driver wait for us as we make multiple stops? Will a 2ish hour commitment be possible for an uber driver And if yes, will it be cost effective?

Help with fire ceremony for wedding!

At our wedding, we want to light a fire in one location (the ceremony site) and after a brief period, say 10 minutes, transport it to another location. Ideally, we would light a fire in a ceremonial bowl with handles that do not transmit heat, then have our two "attendants" use those handles to carry that whole bowl to the real fire pit as part of the procession out. Does such a thing exist? If not, how could we pull this off? [more inside]

Fast and cheap wildflowers in Chicago?
