Brides are, by their very definition, meant to be the most gracious people in the world. Someone shows up to your wedding without RSVPing, brings a date and doesn’t give you a gift? You still send them a thank you card for being present at your big day. Ah yes, the eternally gracious bride.
But sometimes we all catch ourselves having most UNGRACIOUS thoughts! I had one just this morning, and figured I couldn’t possibly be the only one. I got the mail, and there was a beautiful card from Fi’s grandmother with a check for $300 inside. And instead of thinking “awesome, wedding money!” I found myself thinking “why oh why do people insist on sending gifts BEFORE the wedding so that I have to send them a boring and ugly thank-you card I bought at the drug store? Don’t they know I’m planning to buy awesome and adorable personalized thank you cards with a picture of me and Darling Husband on the front to send out AFTER the wedding???? DON’T THEY WANT AN ADORABLE CARD??!”
Umm, hello PinkFlemingo, they got you a gift. Stop being a b**ch!
What horribly ungracious things have you caught yourself thinking during your wedding planning??

@PinkFlemingo: HA! I’m sure grandma would love to get an adorable “thank you for coming to the wedding” card.

@rebwana: Haha that’s what I’ll probably do … but then I have to send two cards! DAMMIT GRANDMA!!! 😉 I’ll give her a pass though since her card was hilarious. It had three stamps on it — a $.39, a $.05, and a $.01. That’s how long it’s been since she last bought postage!!!

My most ungracious thought is that one of FI’s grandmothers (who is a evil woman in general, but that is beside the point) I know a couple of the gifts she is giving us for both my shower and wedding (one of them is a stand mixer), but she didn’t send them because they are “too heavy to mail.” But I’m like yes, large and heavy gifts are REALLY what my family needs to worry about lugging back after the reception!!! I know I should just be grateful for them getting us a nice gift, but I’m like why do you have to bring it to the actual wedding! It’s inconvenient because we are leaving for our honeymoon the next morning, so our families will have to deal with it!

This isn’t wedding related…
But my bff often makes a dinner and brings it too me at work. I’m not a cook, and he is a great cook. He will go on and on as I eat about what’s in it, how he cooked it..etc….etc.
And I think…Omfg it’s good but I don’t need to know every frigging detail about it! Half the stuff he is saying just goes over my head.
