how to keep your own date happy [Page 1 of 1]

Ahh yes. A groomsman with a girlfriend. You've been dating your girl for a number of months, and would like to bring her to your buddy's wedding as a guest. Here's how to keep your date happy while you're smiling for the camera!

So you're a groomsman in a wedding and it's not your trip down the aisle. All well and good - you get to cut loose at the bachelor party and share one of the most important days in a friend's life. The problem comes when you bring a date to the wedding and discover a little too late that she hates to be left alone while you attend to a photos, the head table and - gasp - a bridesmaid. What to do?

Bring your girlfriend to as many of the "events" as possible. If the groom is amenable, see if you can have your date attend the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and preparations, the better to develop a comfort zone and good sense of what's ahead. The point is to involve your date and make her feel like she has a stake in the bacchanalia to come.

Wedding day will be particularly boring for your date, when you may be indisposed for hours at a stretch. Start with introductions early and often, making a point to aim at folks you think whose company she might enjoy. It's not unusual for other stranded souls to wander the reception with the same problem while your at the head table, so you may find a winner among the bunch who can see your "plus-one" through.

Preparation can also preserve the sanity of your date, especially if she's on the shy side. Scope the grounds and find a quiet place if the whole thing gets to be a bit much - your date might be grateful to hide somewhere with a book or magazine. Make sure she knows the whole schedule and when you'll be missing so she can prepare for any eventuality that may arise. If you're smart about it, you can even create a romantic retreat you'll escape to, as well.

Of course the simplest way to bring a date when you are a groomsman is to make sure she can handle herself at a party. You are most likely aware that some women seem to possess this gift, while others, not so easily. Manage her expectations carefully and a resourceful woman will find a way to have a blast. Just don't promise you'll be there to see it.[Page 1 of 1]

It will be hard to have a very large wedding in that price range- but if it is mdtoraee in size it is certainly possible. The biggest problem is that the wedding industry has gotten absurdly expensive. Some things make sense to be priced differently than they might be for other events because the needs are different for a wedding- but usually you are just being gouged because it's a wedding.I had some friends get married outdoors in Colorado recently- sorry I don't have experience with California- but the biggest thing is that you can call locations that rent out space for events and don't tell them it is for a wedding. Depending on the restrictions for just having a social event or a party you can still usually have a small or medium sized wedding within the restrictions and it is almost always cheaper. Look for places that rent an area, not just do wedding packages.
