 Ask the Experts...

The following is a compilation of various questions we've been asked throughout the years from brides. If you have a question of your own, please e-mail us at: diane@berkshirebride.com . All e-mail addresses and names will remain anonymous on the web site and will not be shared with others.

Question: How many "tries" should I give a business I've been calling to book with before I call someone else?

Question: The jeweler for our wedding rings was absolutely amazing! How do we express our "thanks" to them?

Question: What is the tipping etiquette for a wedding? Do we tip all the vendors whom we've received a service from?


Question: If my inlaws are contributing money toward our reception, do I have to include their names on the invitations?

Question: Should a ceremony officiant charge me when all I have asked for is advice and we never signed a contract?


Question: I just got engaged! Where do I start?


Question: What do I do if some of my guests haven't sent in their responses for our wedding by the due date?


Question: Can I get married by a Catholic priest outside of the church?


Question: Do I have to have a father / daughter dance? I do not have a relationship with my father and I do not feel comfortable dancing with him.


Question: We want to have a greenback Jack and Jill but my maid of honor and my fiance's best man are throwing it. How do we tell them what we want?


Question: I don't know who I should choose as my maid of honor! My sister and I have never been really close and we are very different! I am afraid she may plan things that aren't what I'd like. However, I have a friend whom I have "hung out" with since kindergarten and we have very similar tastes. What should I do?


Question: I heard that the mothers are supposed to wear certain colors. Is this true?


Question: My fiance and I already have a child together. Can I still wear white?


Question: There are so many types of flowers. How do I choose?

 
Question: My fiance and I hate cake. Do we have to have it at our wedding?

 
Question : How do I keep my guest list from getting out of hand?


 Question: What can I get my bridesmaids as a gift for being in my wedding?


Question: When is it too late to send "Save-the-Date" cards?


Question: What is the difference between "seal and send" invitations and regular wedding invitations?

Hi, Diane! I just wanted to let you and your husband know you did a wonderful job yesterday at the Berkshire Wedding Expo! My mother and I had so much fun at the event! Thanks so much for putting it together! As a bride, it was extremely helpful and gave me a lot of information to go off of! Thanks again
