One of my bridesmaids recently asked me for my bridal shower guest list. Who knew that would be so hard for me? I found myself researching etiquette and trends on who from the wedding invite list also gets an invite to the bridal shower. Well, the research didn't help! In most cases the shower is only for women, which was my preference anyway, so that part was easy. But from what I was reading half of the people say it's proper to invite everyone (at least all women) from the wedding list to the shower, while the other half say that's complete old school and it's okay to invite who ever you want.

At one point, I could never have imagined that a wedding and all its various preparatory activities could potentially make or break friendships, but it happens. Over the years, I have learned how selfless some people can be: There are the friends who will drop everything and be there for you no matter what. If your car broke down, if a family member passed, if you were having relationship issues -- they were there. Then there is the group who chooses to look the other way and not notice or care if you're having a bad day. I don't personally know these people, but I have seen it happen way too often in other people's relationships.

LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles County has paid nearly $24 million to 36 people who were found to have been wrongly arrested and in some cases beaten by sheriff's deputies at a bridal shower in 1989.In 1995, a jury found that the deputies had used excessive force and violated the civil rights of the party guests, most of whom were Samoan-Americans. That verdict was upheld in July by the state Supreme Court.At a news conference Tuesday, David Dole received a check from his lawyer for the largest portion of the award, $5.8 million.

While my wedding and bridal showers are still a ways away I can't help but think of them often. One of the things that has constantly been on my mind is all the attention I will be receiving. I am fine with this on my wedding day because I know I will be sharing the spotlight with my husband-to-be. However, when it comes to the bridal shower all eyes are on me and the thought of this terrifies me. I am a shy person and don't usually enjoy being the center of attention. I am comfortable and outgoing around close friends and relatives so if the shower is on the smaller side it should be fine but if it ends up being a good amount of people it makes me nervous.

There's 100 days left until my wedding and still 100 things left to do! It's crazy to think that I've been counting down for over 400 days already, but that also makes me even more stressed to think there are only 100 left in the countdown. Who knew so much could be needed for just one day, just one event? If you're not a bride-to-be or you're just recently engaged, you're probably wondering what could there possibly be left to do. Well let me enlighten you with a quick snapshot!

I feel like we live in a world now where the parents don't (and aren't expected to) pay for the wedding. It seems to be a tradition that has passed its time. Or maybe that's just what my parents have convinced me with, so they could get off the hook … But in all seriousness, it is often the job of the couple to come up with the funds to pay for the wedding, yet it hasn't always been that way. So as I go through my budget spreadsheet and we get closer to the big day, I thought it would be fun to break down the old traditions of who was responsible for paying for certain aspects of the wedding.

Bridezilla: a bride who is greedy, thoughtless and rude, thinks nothing of etiquette and believes her friends and family should cater to all of her desires, no matter how outrageous. In action: A woman is asked to be a matron of honor for her best friend's wedding. After buying an expensive gown and shoes, and organizing a bridal shower, the bride tells her that she is too fat and can no longer be part of the bridal party. A bridal registry department store clerk recalls a bride who asked to insert a note in her registry that read, "The china costs $90 for each place setting.

"ONCE AGAIN, you're overreacting," my friend scolded as she pried the television remote from my hand and turned off the Weather Channel."Farm reports from Iowa are not a contributing factor in determining if it will rain Saturday," she added.This weekend, my sister Danielle is getting married. At my home. Outside. Where it rains.There are a million details. Some I can control; too many I can't. My friend Janie, who had casually offered to make pew bows, is now the unofficial wedding coordinator.

Legend has it that the first bridal shower was held in Holland when a maiden fell in love with a poor miller -- and was denied a dowry by her father. So her friends "showered" her with gifts to help her set up a new home.Today, dowries are a thing of the past in most places, and the bridal shower is being redefined. No wonder: In the 1990s, a third of all marriages are remarriages, the average age of first-time brides is nearly 24, and many couples tying the knot are already sharing living quarters.

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- The chance of showers this weekend in the desert lessened considerably yesterday.Not because a TV meterologist predicted it, but because Tracy Austin won another match at the Evert Cup."My goal is to cancel two wedding showers," said Austin, who has an April 17 wedding date. "I have one on Saturday and one on Sunday."She was teasing, of course.Or was she?Austin moved into the third round with a shocking 6-2, 2-6, 6-3 upset of 12th-ranked Katerina Maleeva at Grand Champions Resort.
