    A woman has fiercely split opinion online after asking people whether they think house guests should remove their shoes. The anonymous poster took to the British parenting forum Mumsnet to ask for people's thoughts on the contentious issue. She received a range of replies from posters who did not hold back. Some said they believe it is impolite not to remove your shoes automatically when going to someone else's home. Others said that asking people to remove their footwear is 'unwelcoming', and prioritises the floor over guests' comfort.  And some feel the division is based along class lines, with working and lower middle class people more likely to be proponents of the shoe removal policy.

    A BRIDE has shared how wedding guests are demanding a refund for their hotels after they canceled a week before the nuptials. She took to Reddit and wrote that she and her fiancé aren't willing to give out refunds to the guests since they canceled at the last minute. 1The couple decided not to give the guests a refund partially due to the late noticeCredit: Getty The bride didn't disclose her identity or the names of the people involved.

    Families of three American tourists who died while on vacation at the luxury Sandals Emerald Bay resort in the Bahamas have asked for investigators to allow a pathologist from the U.S. to perform a second autopsy on the bodies. Michael and Robbie Phillips, aged 68 and 65 from Tennessee together with Vincent Chiarella, 64, from Florida, were all found dead on May 6 inside neighboring villas at the resort on Great Exuma Island. The trio were not traveling together.  Vincent's 65-year-old wife, Donnis, is said to be in good condition and recovering nicely at a hospital in Miami.  Frustration has been building as relatives appear to have been left in the dark as to what may have caused their untimely deaths.  'The toxicology reports are still outstanding.

    It’s a banner year for weddings, with industry experts at the Wedding Report predicting that more than 2.5 million couples will tie the knot — a 40-year high. But you might find your finances aren’t quite ready to take on the costs associated with being a wedding guest. Half (50%) of Americans say they plan to attend a wedding in 2022 — but less than a third (31%) have built attendance into their budgets, according to a new survey. “I think guests are going to start looking at all the things that they never really looked at before and determining, ‘Is it really worth me attending this event?’,” says Sheavonne Harris, a wedding planner based in New York City. In some cases, they may just decide to send a nice gift in their absence, she says. Before you RSVP, weigh important factors — from airfare costs to your relationship with the couple — and consider these ideas for fitting attendance into your budget. THINK ABOUT SAVING ON TRAVEL COSTS Among the top factors Americans consider before attending a wedding are...
    World Cup hotels in Qatar have refused to allow gay guests to stay and others have asked customers to modify their behaviour during their visit, including one insisting that patrons do not 'dress gay', according to an investigation.  FIFA and the Qatari authorities have previously insisted that everyone is welcome at the tournament, includiing LGBTQ+ fans, but a survey conducted by Swedish and Danish media has cast further doubt on those claims. Journalists said they contacted 69 hotels in the Middle Eastern state, which were listed on an official World Cup website, approved by FIFA, posing as a newly-wed gay couple seeking a room. According to NRK, SVT in Sweden and DR in Denmark, three hotels refused to accept the reservation, with one suggesting it would be against hotel policy to do so. A further 20 hotels advised the couple to modify their behaviour to avoid public displays of affection during their stay, suggesting the pair 'don't dress gay'. While thirty-three hotels on the recommended list for the World Cup, which opens in Qatar on November 21, accepted the male...

    A guest at the luxury Bahamas resort where three Americans were discovered dead and one hospitalized Friday morning says a faulty air conditioner leaking toxic coolant may have been to blame for the tragedy.

    COUPLES are downsizing their weddings and inviting fewer guests despite the Covid rules easing, a survey found. Around 70 per cent of future brides and grooms say they only want their nearest and dearest to share their big day. 1A survey found couples are inviting fewer guests to their wedding despite Covid rules easingCredit: Alamy And more than half say they would even consider a wedding with as few people in attendance as possible. The average number of invited guests now stands at 52. Before Covid, 20 per cent of weddings had 90 guests or more. Downsizing is causing a shift from larger venues, as 27 per cent of people would now consider a reception in a pub. Brewery chain Greene King asked 2,000 unmarried people about their post-Covid wedding plans.

    Remember the cold buffet, the kitsch of party catering? Pineapple chunks stabbed with cheese and ham on cocktail sticks, platters of devilled eggs and the dreaded chicken in aspic, without which no function was complete. Today, astonishingly, the ‘spread’ is back — but in a very different form. Welcome to the summer grazing table, the cold buffet of the Instagram era, where the art of entertaining is taken to extraordinary levels. Think of a Dutch still life you can actually eat. The best of seasonal fruits, vegetables, pickles, artisan breads, cheeses and more, piled on to a dining table that is not just a feast for the stomach but also for the eyes. There are no separate serving plates, and ‘tools’ are reduced to cocktail sticks or little tongs made from bamboo. The food goes straight on to the (clean) table, with perhaps a sheet of baking parchment here or there to catch crumbs or drips.

Eighty-one percent of respondents in the firms' Theme Parks Trends 2021 survey are optimistic they'll soon be able to spend quality time with loved ones at their favorite leisure spots, and 68% said they'll head back to theme parks, specifically, as soon as they are...

    A brazen Florida couple tried to throw a lavish wedding at a mansion, believing it was vacant and even telling guests it was their own home, only to turn up and be confronted by the confused owner who called 911.  Shenita Jones and Courtney Wilson planned to tie the knot at the $5.7 million estate with 7.2 acres of sprawling land in Southwest Ranches, Florida, currently owned by an heir to the IHOP restaurant franchise empire, according to the Sun Sentinel.  Wilson had posed as a prospective buyer to visit the home several times in the weeks leading up to the nuptials and a detailed wedding website invited guests to join the bride and groom for a lavish ceremony at what they claimed was 'our dream home and Estate.'  But, the couple had not hired the property - let alone bought it - and the real owner Nathan Finkel knew nothing of the plan until Wilson showed up on the morning of the big day. A 911 call on April 17 revealed a baffled Finkel telling the dispatcher people were 'trespassing' on his...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – Last year, 2020, with its rhythmic sound and attractive numerals, was supposed to be a great year to get married. But we all know what happened last year: COVID-19 destroyed everything we had planned. READ MORE: Man Faces Attempted Murder Charge Following Road-Rage Shooting In Deerfield Beach Now, tired of postponing through 2020 and into 2021, many engaged couples are saying they’ve waited long enough: It’s time to get married, CDC advisories be damned. Their parents are vaccinated, and their siblings and relatives will be soon. It may not be the wedding they always dreamed of: There will be fewer people, as many guests will decline the invitation, fearing a super-spreader event they want no part of. The couple may have to settle for a less-desirable date, or restrictions at the venue, or masks required at the ceremony and on the dance floor. Still, many are planning to proceed. Melanie Tolchin was set to get married on Nov. 7 at the Marriott in Pompano Beach. She and her fiance, Bryan Ludwin, postponed to May 23, and don’t...
    Etiquette expert William Hanson has revealed the rules of perfectly brewing and serving a cup of tea on This Morning.  Appearing on the show today, William insisted that the correct etiquette is to be 'post-lactarian' and wait to pour brewed tea into the cup before adding the milk. He revealed that The Queen will always pour the tea for her guests first, adding that in the 19th century the way in which you served your tea was a reflection on your social status. His comments come after Professor Alan Mackie of Leeds University argued people living in regions with hard water should consider using the milk first method while brewing tea, because certain minerals inhibit flavour compounds forming.   Etiquette expert William Hanson has revealed the rules of perfectly brewing and serving a cup of tea  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Insta-glam vs reality!

    A local restaurant in Georgia has defended calling the police on a large dinner party after it allegedly refused to split the table's $2,200 bill into separate checks.  The awkward incident unfolded last month at Louisiana Bistreaux Seafood Kitchen in East Point, Georgia where a group of around 25 people were celebrating a woman's 30th birthday. The March 10th event ultimately ended in a dispute and with a visit from the cops after the restaurant put the party's balance on a single tab and refused to break it down into individual bills. Guests were instead forced to withdraw cash at an ATM in a nearby hotel in order to pay for their meals, resulting in a logistical nightmare.   In an interview with DailyMail.com Saturday, Louisiana Bistreaux said the confusion was largely due to the fact that more than two dozen extra guests had shown up to the party. Police were called on a group of 25 at the Louisiana Bistreaux Seafood Kitchen in East Point, Georgia, on March 10 after the staff refused to split the party's check Guests that wish to reserve...
