This is actually pretty standard at all the weddings I've been to. The prices are usually lower than normal, but it's almost never an open bar. But then again I'm from Newfoundland & we are not known for "sipping"!! It would bankrupt the b&g to have to pay for the guests booze!! But things are a lot different there too - it's not uncommon to recieve less than $50 as a gift either. But the dinner plates at not overly expensive - it's all relative I guess!
I am on the floor laughing... The first party I hosted at my home here with my Dutch FI and me being a Newfie. I had enough food to fed an army and enough booze to kill the enemy and keep the troops happy. He was in shock when he seen the spread that I put on for family and friends 26 people 20 of them Newfies. He just kept telling me "hun thats alot of food, oh hun thats alot of beer and booze". I am laughing, oh is he in for the shock of his life lol.
Let's just say he knows when my brother and cousin shows up their good for a keg or two and half a cow. So yeah in Newfoundland it's CASH BAR and Yes I do remember getting $5.00 from a couple that came to my first wedding 24 years ago. So funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Worst wedding I went to was when one of my college chums (the groom) got married. The church wedding was beautiful, and was in spanish and english. Total Catholic wedding so it was up, down, up, down all afternoon. But the reception was at this conference hall that had a main area and then a long "hall" that jutted off to the side. The groom's side was all seated down this hall like we were the redheaded step children! We couldn't see a thing. We missed everything... garter/bouquet tosses, cake cutting, first dance... they even forgot to let us know when we could eat! Best we could do is have our own little "outcast" party in the back!! LOL

"Where abouts" is one way of saying it. Another one would have been:

"Where's you from cocky?" lol

Oh My God!!!! I am on the floor laughing so hard. I went home this summer the first time in 15 years and took a girlfriend (Non Newfie) with me and she was freaking out because people were cursing at me when they spoke to me.

I had people say " Jesus!!!! Where the *uck have you been"? or what the *uck have you been doing with ya self? My friend was thinking there will be a point when Sue loses it and tells everyone to stop swearing at her. However I am going along with the conversation.
So now my friend and I call each other everyday will ask each other " How the *uck is you day going? Oh the best was when she heard my nephew ask someone "You got the time on ya cocky"..... Oh god I have tears in my eyes remembering her face.
PS Your wedding day is one year after mine!!!!

I went to a wedding on the other side of the country (most of the guests had to fly to get there). The ceremony was beautiful, however after that all 200 guests were led to the churches mildewy basement where were listened to a static-ish radio station and were fed paper cupfuls of peanuts. The real kicker was when groomsmen kidnapped the bride for ransom money. We didn't even have chairs or food and they want MORE from us? Tacky as H%#@!!!

The MOG was so mortified that she offered to take us out of towners all to an elegant steakhouse for dinner. That was the best part of the wedding

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
