Hello everyone, I am new here! We are having a very low budget, casual wedding, and I have been getting so many snobby comments! One friend asked “who is your florist?” and I said, “Me!” and she started laughing! Others have acted shocked that I am not hiring a wedding planner, and that we are having plastic tableware! Have any other DIY or budget brides had to deal with these attitudes?!

Who are these people??? Real friends would never say such things…if people say that they are certainly not classier people – they LACK class!!! Hold your head up high and know that you are marrying the LOVE of your LIFE and that is what matters! xoxoxo

Welcome to weddingbee! I’m sorry that people are so snobby about your wedding. They are all about the people getting married, weddings don’t have to be all the same anymore.

Wow that is rude! I went to a wedding this past weekend where the bride’s family decorated and it was beautiful! I gave them props because I certainly couldn’t do it.

Classy folks have the decency to keep commons to themselves, whether they understand a situation or not. I think it’s utterly ridiculous and terribly passive aggressive for people to act this way towards you. The beautiful thing about weddings are that they are to celebrate and reflect on a couple, whether that be by hiring someone to figure that out for you or taking control yourself!
No matter what your budget or details, the important part is that you make it about you and your FH. 🙂

@jenn i was thinking the same thing!! classier people never denounce someone else’s way of doing things.. and umm i’m doing my own flowers too and i daresay mine will look better than what most florists can do because well i have a vision (lol!!)

Well your not alone!! Not everyone is made of money!! And honestly most people spend way too much on weddings! My mother and I are doing pretty much everything ourselves also! oh and we are also having plastic silverware!! 😉

To build on trugem….the NICEST wedding I’ve ever been to was completely budget! It was my best friend…and we went to Walmart and Christmas Tree Shops for all the decorations….he got married on a lake….the best man and I created floating candles out of buoys…..it was a potluck, everyone brought yummy food….and you know what made it the best wedding of my life? The LOVE that it took to create it!!! Every single decoration, every single little touch was done by someone who loved the bride and groom with all their hearts, and it showed. I will NEVER forget that wedding!!! <3

I’m sorry that people are being so rude about it. Don’t let it get you down. All that is important is that you and your future husband enjoy your wedding day 🙂
I think too much pressure is put on brides these days to spend spend spend. My Fiance and I are still in college (dating for 5 years now) and money is really tight. Recently we had to throw out the chair cover idea because it’s not in the budget. We would rather spend our money so we can have more of our friends and family there instead of chaircovers.

What is that quote about those who mind don’t matter and those that matter don’t mind? I think you just have to realize your true friends are going to be happy for you, plastic forks in hand with big smiles on their faces. The ones who make snide comments are miserable people and not your true friends anyway. Best of luck to you!
