  2. Do you think is it okay for the a couple to live together before getting married?

Is it possible to use 'will' instead of 'would' with 'prefer' and 'like'?
Eg.,
Will you like a traditional or modern wedding? I think it will change it's meaning and it will mean 'will you like it or not?'

Will you prefer a traditional or modern wedding?

How could I use 'would rather' in that sentence?

Thanks
Hi,

These two expressions are very similar.
Would you prefer X?
Would you rather have X?

When you use 'will', it shows you are thinking of a future event that you think will actually happen.
eg Mary will marry Tom.

When you use 'would', it suggests you think the event is hypothetical, just a posssibility.
eg If Tom asked Mary, she would marry him.
.
'Would' is also used to add politeness in certain cases,
eg Would you like a cup of tea?

Hello,
I need to make sure I know this too.
Would you prefer is followed by infinitive only or by a noun. For example; Would you prefer to go there alone?/Would you prefer a red hat to the green one?

And would you rather have ... is followed by a noun. Eg., Would you rather have a dog than a cat? Am I right? Is everything correct?

Are there any other simillar constructions?

Thanks
