Help Assuage My Fear of Las Vegas

I have never been to Las Vegas but will be going for the first time this summer as a bridesmaid for my friend's bachelorette party. I am not a Vegas person: I don't drink or club, I don't like being around lots of people all the time, my budget is extremely tight, and crashing at the yucky hotel we're staying at sets off all my buttons in every way. Am I going to be able to realistically make this happen, or do I need to figure out a way to bail now? [more inside]

Tuxedo: vintage or new?

I'm coming to the realization that I need to either buy a new tux or a vintage tux for my wedding. Tell me of your experiences with vintage tuxes please? Tell me of your experiences with cool vintage store in New York City please? Or some other place in the area to buy a tux that isn't a chain or a department store? [more inside]

Names for wedding party members who are friends of both bride and groom?

So a female friend of the bride is typically called a bridesmaid or bridesmatron (or maid of honor or matron of honor). I guess you could also use brideswoman (or woman of honor) if you want to avoid the whole does-maid-mean-unmarried? issue. I've heard the term a bridesman (or man of honor) for a male friend of the bride. And if you don't want to specify the gender of the person in question, you could use bridesperson (or person of honor). A male friend of the groom is typically a groomsman (or best man). A female friend is sometimes called a groomswoman (or best woman), although I guess you could also go with groomsmaid or groomsmatron (or best maid or best matron). And again, avoiding the gender of the friend, you can have a groomsperson (or best person). But what if there's a member of the wedding party who is a friend of both the bride and groom? What do you call that person? [more inside]

My dream wedding is a courthouse ceremony

We've decided to get married. Yay! I am the female half of a straight couple, if that matters. In the near future, we want to go to our local (US) courthouse and have a civil ceremony with just a judge and our immediate families present: his parents, my parents, his sibling+partner, my sibling+partner+child. Later this year, we'll throw an informal party and invite our extended circles to that as a larger celebration/reception. Our immediate families are supportive of this plan and just want us to be happy, but I have already gotten some pushback from friends and it gave me pause. So I guess I have questions about the practicality and etiquette of our plan and... whatever else we haven't thought about. Neither of us has been married before. [more inside]

Be my bridesmaid, but don't go broke

How can I tactfully let my bridesmaids know I'm happy to help them pick up the tab? I'm getting married this summer, and have asked seven close friends to be bridesmaids. They're all wonderful, good friends, and they all like each other and me and everything is harmonious, except that there is a SERIOUSLY WIDE income disparity among them (everything from full-time student working part-time at a coffee shop to a stay-at-home wife of a zillionaire). I am definitely on the higher side of the spectrum, but it is very important to me that I be mindful of my friends' bank balances. [more inside]

Need non-racist-affiliated Viking jewelry and traditions for a wedding

My fiance is half-Norwegian, and all the family he's in contact with are pretty Norwegian. We're having a wedding and trying to honor each other's heritages. I need touches and customs that can be added to said wedding. Problem: while googling on the internet for Viking stuff and/or meaningful runes, I'm finding a ton of racist stuff. My fiance has done antifa work and I just plain hate Nazis. How can I find cool customs that have not been appropriated by horrible people, and how can I buy jewelry (particularly ring-type) that isn't going to racist pockets? [more inside]

A wedding with no officiant and no wedding party. Am I insane?

I'm getting married this summer, in a small, casual, non-religious wedding. We're not planning to have a wedding party, and haven't been able to come up with any good ideas for an officiant, so we're probably going to try to do without one of those as well. Have you done something similar? How will the logistics work out here? [more inside]

How do we make our gigantic wedding feel intimate and special?

What are ways to make a really large wedding feel intimate and special? My boyfriend and I just engaged (yay!) and we are super excited to be married to each other. We're also super excited to have a wedding: we're taking a relatively relaxed, guests-first approach to the ceremony and reception, with the goals of the whole thing feeling (1) intimate, (2) special, (3) really, really fun. All this was eminently doable when we thought the guest list was going to be 75. But now, many difficult conversations with our parents later, we're facing down a guest list of over 250, and I'm at a loss as to how to still hit our mood/vibe/emotional atmosphere goals.

I'd probably get disowned if we went to the courthouse and told them about it later...

Weddings for Dummies filter: We got engaged in July and are now slowly realizing that if we want to get married in, say, June we have to, like, do something about that. I want to be *married* but am sort of ambivalent about the wedding itself and am kind of dreading this project. What basic resources (checklists, books, etc.) would help make me feel a little more in control and organized at this point? How do people even begin this process? Bonus points for great wedding venue suggestions in Anchorage, Alaska. [more inside]

NEED A WEDDING VENUE IN BOCA RATON, FLORIDA

NEED A WEDDING SPOT IN BOCA RATON, FLORIDA: Hi there! My fiance and I are planning to get married in early June in or around Boca Raton, Florida. We are looking for a venue (for both the ceremony and the reception) that is indoors (i.e., air conditioned) but that has windows/a view of the outdoors, and can fit 150-200 people. Can be anywhere within a half hour drive of Boca Raton (e.g., Deerfield Beach, Boca Del Mar, etc.). We have searched the Internet with little luck (and the Japanese Gardens are too small). Help!
