Just punch them in the nose, or make some voodoo dolls. 🙂

I kid, I kid.

Just advise them to STFU, and try as hard as you can to ignore it. People are jerks.

i say dont give people any wedding info – if they ask about it just say you want it to be a suprise and they will see on the day so they can keep thier bitching to a min

sorry youre getting grief and sending hugs

um, unless you’re making them come in the nude and pay for everything….i don’t see why they are raining on your parade. even then, they can just decline the invite. that said, ignore them. do what makes you and FI happy. try to stay away from the haters. like energy attracts like energy. surround yourself only with positive people. your wedding’s going to turn out beautifully, as long as you stay true to yourself. *hugs*

Brush ’em off.  Try not to let them get you down too much!  Just keep on planning and enjoy the ride.

Certain FI family members are complaining about our wedding and trying to change our plans. My new reaction (not that I ever yelled at them) is to be all positive and say “this is what we’re doing, we understand if no one can come, whoever wants to be there can come, if not, we’ll go out to dinner when we get home.”

It seems to shut them up.

(We’re going to Vegas, just getting married in a chapel, so it’s going to be a 30 minute ceremoney and totally understand if no one wants to fly out for 30 minutes and dinner 🙂 It helps that we can say that they can watch us get married online too!)

Good luck, try not to let it get you down!

I am having the same problem with members of FH’s family. I have decided that I will stop talking about details with them. If they ask me about it I’m just going to say things are coming along. If they ask to help I will say that I will let them know if I need it at a later date since everything is under control for now.

My bigest problem at the moment is his sister (a bridesmaid) who didn’t like any of the 4 dresses I had picked out for them, so I looked for something else and found a dress I loved and the MOH (my sis)  loves and she is draging her heals on it now. I just want to say buy the fing dress already and stfu. Plus she has something to say about EVERYTHING I plan to do or make and wants me to do thing her way.

People always want to give unsolicited advice, I have no idea why!  But just do you, after all its your day!

MissDesigner; Wow – your sister-in-law really should suck it up and wear the dress you pick (seriously, haven’t we all worn bridesmaid dresses we hate!)  Are you willing to give her a color and let her pick out the dress, or do you really prefer matching bridesmaids

 

Wildstyle:  I’m sorry your family is being so critical.  Mine hated the reception site I chose, and was worried that the wedding would look cheap and unimpressive.  I went ahead with my dream, and my mother wound up loving it.  My father – not so much – but that was to be expected.

Maybe Miss Designer should select a strange colored mutton sleeved taffeta dress and say that this is the new dress.  When there are complaints, she can then switch to the real dress.  Oh, I know that’s cruel, but it’d be funny!

*HUGS* I don’t know why people always feel the need to put their two cents into someone else’s wedding, but you know what they say about OP’s opinions…everyone’s got them, and everyone’s stink. 😉
