    @CarolinaCola:  Huh I was asked this too. Shortly after finding out our ages (23 and 27)

    I wonder if judgier vendors are thinking, “They’re so young! Is this a shotgun wedding or what?”

    No, and we’re 25 and 27. I sound insanely young on the phone, though, so maybe people guess I’m much younger

    I havent had anyone ask us, and we’re in our 30’s. I wouldn’t be offended at all if someone did ask though

    We weren’t asked if we had kids and our vendors know we’re young. The only mention of kids was when it came to the menu!

    Never got that question. I feel like it’s pretty weird …. unless they’re just “trying to get to know you.”

    Or ….. maybe they’re trying to get an idea of how many (if any) kids are going to be at the wedding? Then again if that’s the case, why not just ask flat out??

    Weird IMO.

    I got asked, rudely and multiple times, if I was pregnant by the guy who kind of runs the venue. He actually tracked down my inlaws and asked them too.

    @CarolinaCola:  He’s an idiot. He knew me from the year before (he’s the director of a bible camp that I work at during the summer) so he should’ve known better. He just assumes that anyone who gets married young is pregnant apparently.
