    Bridezillas May Be Fined For Freakouts

    iStockphoto

    Here comes the bride tax.

    Some wedding venues are so fed up with – how does one put this delicately? – detailed-oriented brides, that they’ve imposed a fine for excessive kvetching. The betrothed may want to be careful about wearing out the patience of event planners with questions about the color of flower arrangements

    One excited bride recently came down to earth with a bump when she inquired about booking a wedding reception at Loring Pasta Bar in Minneapolis, Mn., a popular wedding venue that hosts cocktail parties and banquets. The bride – who wishes to remain anonymous – was told that after five email exchanges with the event planner she would have to pay $5 per message.

    Your Own Royal Wedding Security Breach?

    You may have seen a version of those viral royal name-change games doing the rounds on Facebook and Twitter. They ask: “What’s your royal wedding guest name?”

    iStockphoto

    Internet security firm Sophos, which often goes over-the-top chronicling all manner of entertaining and colorful threats, has cautionary words for those of you who want to play. This potential breach to your personal security doesn’t come via a rogue third party who wants to steal your personal digits from your Sony PlayStation account, but from a well-meaning friend.

    “In honor of Britain’s royal wedding…” the game begins. It asks you to change your name to Lord/Lady, one of your grandparents’ first names and, lastly, asks for your first pet’s name and the street you grew up on for or a double-barreled surname. Sophos says it could be a boon for cyber thieves, especially if you use these names for passwords or security questions.

    Wedding Guest Fatigue: 5 Tips To Beat It

    So you didn’t receive an invitation to Britain’s royal wedding?

    There’s no easy way to say this: if it hasn’t arrived yet, it’s probably not lost in the post. On the upside, think about the money you’ve saved on transatlantic plane tickets, taxi fares, hotel rooms, new “bib-and-tucker” (or clothes) as might they say in England. Plus, you get to stay home and avoid stilted conversation with diplomats about the weather and people’s health.

    iStockPhoto

    If you’re lucky, you get to have at least one wedding in your lifetime. (If you’re really lucky, you might get two or even three.) But for the guests, the constant merry-go-round of nuptials can be tiresome and expensive. With apologies to Prince William and Kate Middleton and anyone else meeting with wedding planners, these are Pay Dirt’s 5 tips to beat wedding guest fatigue.

    Go splitsville on the registry present.

    Split the cost 50/50 with another guest. Joanna Kartalis, director of The Registry at Bloomingdale’s, says it’s okay to share the costs of an item on the registry, especially something at the more expensive end of the range. Are you uncomfortable with buying a prescribed gift? Think again. “You don’t want to buy something that’s left sitting in the attic,” Kartalis says.

    Recycle. “Regift” is just a dirty word.

    The beauty of gift-giving is to get something the recipient wouldn’t buy for themselves. That’s where all that crystal you never got to use from your own wedding comes in. Don’t think of it as re-gifting, think of it as recycling. Just take off the tags and re-wrap it. One important tip: if it’s a corporate gift, make sure “10 Years Loyal Service” is not engraved on the glass.
