“It’s YOUR day…we’ll do whatever YOU want” – everyone I know
the reason this is my “favorite” is because while everyone keeps saying that to me, it couldn’t be further from the truth. what they really mean to say is.. “it’s YOUR day, we’ll do whatever YOU want..as long as it’s really what I want”

“YOU’RE NOT HAVING CAKE!?!???!?”
My sister when I told her we’re having sugar pie instead of a wedding cake lol.

“You can wear my dress, it’ll fit the theme perfectly”
From my mom. Who had a super traditional wedding performed in a church. Which means her dress was a HUGE ballgown with crazy sleeves and a 10 ft. train that weighs close to 239857589 pounds. My theme is rustic-beachy, outside, in Florida. I’m apparently missing the connection.

@lindz629: That’s my favorite as well, mostly because people use it to avoid giving me advice or helping me at all, ha.

@DeathByDesign: Ah, I don’t even really like cake. Sugar pie sounds awesome!
My favorite is FI’s family: “If the guys don’t wear tuxes, it will *ruin* the wedding.”

Gramma: “Don’t be too naked! Wear a sensible dress.”
FI: “I WANT A REAL WEDDING CAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Really? I wanted a dessert bar with options, but apparently fiance wants a traditional tiered wedding cake.

“I will just be so glad when this wedding is OVER!”
Said repeatedly by my mother, who didn’t have to help with ANYTHING. She was very happy about the wedding, so I pointed out that it wasn’t a nice thing to say and she didn’t see why.

I’m walking down the aisle with both parents. My dad told my mom that they should “walk a little bit behind [me] so that the guests can see [me] better.” Can you imagine? It would look like they were hesitant or something. My FFIL also asked my SO if he had to “hold his hand or anything.” My mom has also said “I don’t like anything on your registry” and “the groom has to wear a tuxedo, or else no one will know which one he is.” It’s funny, my mom isn’t involved in the wedding at all, but will bring it up once in a while just to throw out some weird criticism.

“Will that strapless dress be warm enough for November?”
(I’m sorry… What, Mom?)
