Is it me or my friend is getting out hand with her wedding?

You don't "have" to do anything here except buy the dress she assigns you to buy. (Unless, of course, it's out of your budget and she didn't consult you on the price before selecting it.)

Everything else, feel free to say "Sorry but I can't do that." And if she's mad, shrug and say "Sorry you feel that way, but I just can't do it." Or, "If you want me to have a $200 hairstyle so badly then I'm going to need you to pay for it."

She's not supposed to be assigning you to attend/throw her a shower or bachelorette party. That should've been up to the bridesmaids to plan on their own, IF they wanted to. You guys should've spoken up when you had the chance. You're still free to say, "Friend, if you leave it to us we'll plan something very nice for you. If you insist on having it a certain way then it's best if all us bridesmaids just step down from the planning and let you plan and pay for the whole thing yourself so that you're sure to get what you want."

She may be a greedy pill, but if you allow her to get away with such ridiculous requests then it's your own fault if you wind up spending more money than you wanted to. She's not holding a gun to your head to do all this. She's greedy because she isn't used to hearing the word NO. "NO" is not a dirty word, remember.

If she simply can't deal with you refusing these ridiculous requests, then you should say to her that you'll step down as a bridesmaid and she's free to find someone else who can fulfill her requirements. And then that's that. If you lose the friendship over it, so be it ... she doesn't sound like much of a friend anyway.

Why'd you agree to be a bridesmaid for a friend who's clearly THIS needy and thoughtless? Surely this isn't the first time she's treated you like a limitless ATM or personal servant, no? Weddings don't magically change people overnight.

Suppose you've won a prize. You can get 1000 dollars in cash or a lifetime of free use of every dating app there is. Which do you take? Suppose it's 1 million dollars vs. a lifetime of free use. Which do you take then?

I plan to marry, which would render the dating apps worthless to me, so I���d take the cash.If it were $1000, though, I’d need more info. We’re talking dating apps, not the fancy stuff, right, because some of the stuff that I would not consider “dating apps” can be quite pricy and may came out worth it in the long run. If I got a million, though, I could pay for whatever app until I was married, then spend the rest on my family.

Do you think it bad to get married on a Friday?

I planning on getting 12/10/10 that a Friday. I chose Friday cause I can save up to a 1000 dollars to have a Friday rather then Saturday. I on tight budge and I can do a lot of stuff with an extra 1000 dollars. I also like the date too 12/10/10 seem neat to me. Is there a draw back to having a Friday wedding. Cause most Brides have their on Saturday.

Is $800 to $1000 enough to spend one an Engagement Ring? and any advice that can be given will be nice.?

The budget is not as important as the knowledge you need before going shopping. So I would like to give you some pointers to help you out.

First - NEVER pay full price for jewellry. Its is marked up a rediculous amount. Also, if you are paying cash, most jewellers (especially ones that are not chains) are willing to negotiate with you.

Most jewellers also have lay-away plans if you find something you have to have and its just a bit out of your budget.

Consider the fact that your girl will be wearing this ring every day for the rest of her life. So it needs to be sturdy and strong. You have a couple of options for this: First look for a ring that has some weight to it - not something that's paper thin. Gold by its nature is soft, so the thinner the band the more likely it is to bend or break.

Also, on that same topic, consider going for a 10, 12, or 14 karat gold. It doesn't affect the color much but the lower the karat weight the stronger the ring will be. (most jewellers will try to push you to an 18 + karat and you don't need that)

In regards to the stone you have lots of options. Again the jeweller will like try to persuade you to the highest quality of diamond you can afford, but the truth is - in your price range you could end up with something really tiny. Instead you can compromise a little and look at some diamonds that may have a small shadow in them. Even with that, lots will have great sparkle factor, and usually people can't even tell.

Another option which a lot of people are moving to is to not bother with a diamond at all. The latest trends are moving towards sturdy gemstones like blue saphires which are gorgeous and way cheaper than diamonds. Not to mention being a real statment.

Some even go with celtic knots or antique rings as well which are beautiful and will help you with your budget.

I hope that helps. :)
