SparkPeople Brides and Grooms To-Be Messageboard Please Help! Bridesmaid Dilemma!!! And I will say Bridesmaid loosely and here's why. This girl, just someone I occasionally worked out at the gym with for a few weeks. She is a cashier I see a few times a week saying a few words, barely even small talk. But for some reason she kept wanting me as a "buddy" to go check out some wedding dresses with her. I thought nothing of it and we finally went. <BR> <BR> Keep in mind I barely know anything about this girl. We've never done anything friends do. I don't know any of her family...

I struggle with sticking to weight loss....anyone want to buddy up? I know i need to just cut my portion size and drink more water because majority of my diet is healthy and SW based but I do go off course at times and then struggle to get back on the wagon. My portion size is bigger than it should be for my lifestyle and activity level (which is pretty sedentary when I'm not at work)...anyone fancy budding up to help keep each other focussed? I can get pretty competitive if my mind is up to ... Thu, 13 Apr 2017 09:32:31 EST Any other 2018 brides looking for a buddy? Hi!

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 07:23:17 EST Questions about a vow renewal. I hope it's OK to ask about a vow renewal on this board. <BR> <BR> We have been talking about a vow renewal for several years now. I would love to have our family join us as well as friends. DH prefers that it be just us. We're at an impasse. We don't have a large family. 2 sons and their wives and 4 grandchildren. I truly understand hubby's preference. As well as he understands mine I guess. <BR> <BR> If anyone has done a vow renewal, what did you do? Did you have a grea... Sat, 28 Jan 2017 02:32:45 EST What's your general timeline? A year, two years? <BR> <BR> I mean, I'm figuring tenish months...getting a venue and the rest of what I need to do is pretty overwhelming.. Just was curious what y'all are up to Mon, 16 Jan 2017 21:39:57 EST Food addict In my past I was addicted to various drugs. Once I got sober my drug problem turned into an eating problem. Now my husband and I are planning a vow renewal since we didn't have a wedding and I need to lose 85 pounds to fit into my dress.(yes I already have a dress that was purchased before I sobered up) any advice on how to give up snacking and stick to 6 small meals a day? They don't ever seem to fill me up. Even drinking 10 cups of water a day. Tue, 10 Jan 2017 12:55:48 EST Toxic In-Laws I wanted to ask how other people have dealt with toxic in-laws. I am the mother of the bride. We are so excited for our daughter and her fiance to be tying the knot. They have been receiving an incredible amount of negative pressure from the future in-laws. Honestly, it's horrific some of the things the groom's parents have said to them. The kids decided they wanted to have a small, upscale event. They are getting married at a winery in British Columbia and the way it works is that they... Tue, 3 Jan 2017 12:14:21 EST Mother of Groom 23 week challange I will be the Mother of the groom in July.

Tue, 8 Nov 2016 10:34:19 EST opinions on request from a friend Hey all, I need opinions. So here's the deal, a friend of mine asked me last weekend (for my wedding in 2.5 weeks) if I could not have flowers at the table where she and her mom will be sitting for the reception. Her mom is allergic enough that flowers at her table will cause her issues but apparently the other flowers in the room would be ok... <BR> <BR> I was kind of shocked she asked, given that the wedding is so close and all. <BR> <BR> What would you do? Try to throw something togethe... Wed, 5 Oct 2016 07:43:33 EST Sweating for Septem-burrr Hi Guys! <BR> <BR> I'm a newly engaged gal looking for some accountability partners! I'm starting a week long fitness challenge on August 15th and a month long fitness challenge in September. <BR> <BR> I've been trying to lose this last 10 lbs for engagement photos coming up. I've already lost about 16 lbs in the past two years (since college, can I get an amen?). Now that I'm engaged, I want to look my best for our wedding! I decided to go with beachbody because one of my co-workers lost ... Mon, 8 Aug 2016 12:45:22 EST Weight Loss Buddy? Hey!

Wed, 3 Aug 2016 13:46:10 EST A look at finances before you're married Perhaps this should be addressed to older folks getting married. No need to do something as formal as a pre-nup, but it is wise to take a look at what each one owns before you tie the knot. You may not live in a community property state, but there is a good chance you life in a state with a definition of marital property or marital assets. <BR> <BR> Discuss ahead of time who you want to leave your savings to -- your kids? your grandchildren? your spouse? <BR> <BR> What happens to your... Sat, 16 Apr 2016 09:33:02 EST I found my dress I found my dress yesterday. It is more beautiful than I dreamed it would be. It's very forgiving with the corset back so I can lose a bit more without having to worry. I can't wait to wear it on my special day. Tue, 8 Mar 2016 19:59:06 EST Want/Need a Challenge? If you're looking for a challenge and ready to make a commitment....I have the challenge for you! <BR> <BR> Biggest Loser is the name. It's a 10 week commitment. You have several little teams (with 24 members) that compete with each other. Main requirement is to weigh in each week. If you know for some reason that you can't post your weight (let the leaders know). Otherwise after 2 missed weigh ins (with no excuse) you would be moved to honorary. We have ITC (inter team challenges) that cons... Sat, 30 Jan 2016 22:38:45 EST Super hot BF - annoyingly naturally skinny My fiance who lives with me eats whatever he wants and always looks great. Plus he loves to cook and is very good at it - this is a terrible thing to complain about!!! It really hurt his feelings when I began refusing his grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. But we got through that. He is such a sweetheart and says he would love me at any weight, which I know he would. So he can't understand my weight loss journey or why it is important to me. Any suggestions or folks in the same boat? Fri, 23 Oct 2015 16:45:50 EST Did/Would you ask the father before propsing? Just curious really <BR> <BR> Did/Would you ask the father before proposing?

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 11:40:26 EST Maid of Honor Bailed - Am I being catty? My maid of honor bailed out of my wedding party because I don't have her children apart from it. She said she needs to do what is right for her kids. She doesn't want to leave them alone while I get married. She thought that she might be able to hold her youngest one during the ceremony, and have them sit at the head table with us, and be in the limo and during pictures. I said these are no kid area's. My step son will be the only child standing up during the ceremony and he will only be at t...
