@Doralise:  Ugh that’s annoying.  I don’t think he understands that the “stuff that matters” is the getting married part.  Sounds like a real gem :

Cue coffee break!

Your brother said he’ll be the first to have a “real” wedding and he’s not even DATING anyone right now?  What a jerk.

It sounds like he was a jerk about it with the “stuff that matters” comment, but I wouldn’t be upset if someone said that to me. I didn’t even want to have a traditional, big, conventional wedding. Did you want to have a big wedding but were unable to for some reason? If you had the wedding you wanted, then it shouldn’t matter what anyone else thinks.

I wouldn’t be bothered by his comment – especially since he’s not even dating anyone. I think what he was trying to say is that you didn’t have a “traditional” wedding and he is planning on having one.

I am having a court hosue wedding in 3 weeks and if I had a penny for every time someone has asked me why I’m not having a real wedding I would be a millionaire.

 

Your brother sounds like a piece of work. Try not to take his comments personally! It sounds like you had a special day 🙂

“…Not only that but people who mattered came to the wedding and BBQ.”

“I wasn’t there!”

“I know.”

Well I’m having a big wedding in a reception hall, but we’re not having a bouquet toss or big white cake.  So now I just don’t know if that’s a real wedding or not 😛

Anyways that’s lame, but I wouldn’t worry about it.  Sounds like typically stupid brother comments.  Some people really just don’t think about how stuff sounds before they let it out of their mouths.

I’m sorry to say that your brother is a douche. Of course your wedding was a real wedding! I loved your end to the conversation! This is definitely the first time I’ve heard of a guy being a bridezilla before he’s even dating anyone!!!

LOL I’d venture a guess that based on his idea of a “real” wedding, your brother doesn’t know his ass from his elbow!

I agree with all of you bees!  Brother is an idiot.  He hasn’t had to deal with the STRESS of planning a ‘real’ wedding.  Believe me, when he has to face these decisions, and a FI CRAZY enough to put up with his BS enough to agree to marry him, he will be BEGGING for a courthouse wedding.  

I have been begging FI for a courthouse wedding myself.  My parents did it, I want to too!  The stress is getting to me, and all I want is to wear my pretty dress, hold a pretty bouquet, and be married to the best man I have ever met. 
Nope, FI wants his ‘fairy tale wedding’.  Ugh.

ALL weddings are equal – you say the same damn vows.  Anyone who says otherwise deserves to be chewed out – before or after a coffee break!
