It depends on how the wedding was presented.   A small(-ish) casual affair like an outdoor summer wedding, no I would not be offended.     A big, formal wedding (think all the bells and whistles, big white dress, etc)?  I would think it was very odd and would feel like the couple was trying to have more of a wedding then they could afford and were expecting the guests to fill in the financial gaps.   One thing I did see at a wedding that did sort of offend me was when...
I don't know it as a rule per se but that is always the rule of thumb DH and I use when giving wedding gifts.   Of course it isn't possible to figure it out to the exact dollar but I wouldn't, for example, give a $10 gift when invited to a wedding/reception where a hot meal and alcoholic drinks were served.    I think wedding gifts are so specific to families/circle of friends.  I had a co-worker say that bottles of laundry detergent, dish towels, single pyrex dishes are...
OP - I think what you are proposing is a fine idea, nothing wrong with it at all, go for it!   Where I live, it is rather common for people to skip the ceremony and only go to the reception.   
Thanks, yes it does make sense.  It has been a month the decendet passed.  I will just sit back and wait for a while yet. 
I put this here rather than F&F because it is a question about finding information rather than a pure money issue.   The background - a family member passed away and the executrix (another distant family member) said to me "Did X discuss her will with you?"  I replied that no, she did not and I also never asked X about it.    Executrix proceeds to tell me that "you and your DS are in the will and I will tell you about it later"  I got the sense that Executrix...
Along those lines, the thought did cross my mind that Barb may leave Bill behind and explore a female relationship.  Not with Margene but with a woman closer to her age that has similar life expereinces.  My reasoning is that she seems to feel so strongly about her new feelings and that maybe she will be seeking a radical change.  Though I do think her and the casino guy would have been a good match.   I hope the writers don't go down the student/teacher road, a 37 yo...
Count me in!  I don't know where I read about it but I stuck it on my Netflix list and sort of forgot about it until the 1st disk showed up one day.  DH and I LOVED it and watched it straight through.  I need to pace out the remaing disks.....   We need a "if you liked Dirty, Sexy, $, you would like this........series" thread!
I am with you and have the waistline to prove it!  I love to plan meals, cook, research food and cooking methods, etc.   I am interested in hearing from people who don't enjoy food/eating.  Are you thin?  (sorry, I hope that isn't an offensive question I am just thinking that someone who doesn't enjoy eating  wouldn't overeat) 
Me too, on all three.  Your story about the shed, the police, the threats of self-hurting is so, so, so similar to two addicts I know (one family member, one parent of my BFF)    Hang in there with Al-anon.  Hopefully once you get to know some of the members, you will have a support network for childcare during meetings.  I know several people (all women) who are involved in the program and what they do for each other and new attendees is just amazing, I hope you will...
  I can't tell you how grateful I was to have read the bolded book prior to DS starting solids.  Because DH and I both came from families with major food/feeding children issues, it literally changed our lives and our approach to feeding our DS.  Had we not read it, we both definately would have been a "panicky parent"
