Dear LeeAnn,

My future in-laws are having the rehearsal dinner at their home. It's really not going to be anything special. It'll be just a regular Sunday dinner. I am a little disappointed. I thought since they aren't helping out with our wedding costs, they would make it a little nicer. Is it wrong for me to say anything about it to them?



Hi Kelli,

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. It really wouldn't be proper to say anything to them since they are hosting the dinner. However, you might discuss it with your fiance. If he wants to maybe he can talk to them about it. They might not be able to afford anything more. Tread lightly as this is a delicate subject.

Good Luck,


Cheap Chic Weddings

Love It.........Hate It

Love It:

* Butterfly wings on flower girls

* Pretty fashion jewelry at Target- priced right too

* Hotel honeymoon registries

Hate It:

* Bridesmaids that don’t honor the bride’s reasonable requests. This is the brides day, indulge her.


We love Martha Stewart Crafts at Michael’s Stores…

We love the new craft product line by Martha Stewart at Michael’s Stores. The line includes oversized scrapbooks, scrapbook embellishments, food boxes, card making kits, gift packages, paper flower kits and tons of crafting supplies.

The line is pretty reasonable with smaller items starting at about $2.00. All of the products are made in the colors de Martha. The papers and kits are beautifully designed and make it easy for the most challenged crafter to make wonderful things!


A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of all our faults.

~ Charles Kingsley
