      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

  1. Winter Weddings

    Would you hold/have you ever held a wedding in the winter? Or, for that matter, have you ever been a bridesmaid (or groomsman) in winter wedding or attended one as a guest? What do you see as the pluses, if any? Minuses?
  2. Recently read that some couples are doing their weddings w/ themes from favorite TV series, most notably "Game of Thrones." How far would you carry through such a theme (if at all)?
  3. Wedding Gift Etiquette

    In the "You need to apologize..." thread in MILA, Komorebi asked what the current etiquette is for wedding gift amounts if you (general) aren't actually attending the wedding. I'm wondering what the wedding gift etiquette is where you live/among your friends/family, in general (is there a certain amount guests are "expected" to spend/give?), as well as wondering about your answer to Komo's question. Would love to hear your reply to either or both below...
  4. Groan! More snow last night and a little coming down, now and then, today. Great news for my DGC (they love to play in it, as I've said elsewhere), but, of course, a pain as far as driving is concerned. Fortunately, the plows are already going through and we didn't get too much, anyway, b/c DH and I have a wedding to go to on Sunday. Not my favorite time of year to attend a wedding, but looking forward to good food, dancing, etc. Meanwhile, how does your weekend look? Will you be busy w/ your kids/GC this weekend or will you have it all to yourself/for you and your spouse/SO? Or a little of each? Doing anything special? Or just relaxing? Or ??
  5. Do you have a favorite "wedding song?" Do you tear up, for example, when you hear the very traditional "Here Comes the Bride?" Or do you respond more to more current romantic numbers, such as "All of Me?"
  6. It's May, one of the most popular wedding months, along w/ June... What's your take on weddings? For example, do you favor large ones or small? Traditional or creative? Do you welcome or resent dress codes on the invite, such as "Black Tie?" (I mention that b/c I know one woman that adores Black Tie weddings and one couple that won't go to any.) Do you think a beautiful wedding is worth any expense? Or hey, are you among those who believe it's better to just go to a JP and spend the money saved on the down payment on a house, etc? Or ??   Whatever your thoughts about weddings, please share them w/ us below...
  7. Last week we talked about Mother's Day gifts. Now I'm asking what do you think is the best wedding/bridal shower gift you ever gave/received? And if you will, what is the worst?   (I know this has come up before in some other threads. But we've had new people come in since then, etc.)
