It’s an issue pretty much every bride runs into. Weddings, like pregnancies, seem to bring out the “advice” giver in everyone. As long as you provide a comfortable environment for your guests with palatable food and drinks, and you don’t break up social units (e.g invite a husband but not his wife), you’re good to go. Start practicing the art of the non-commital phrase coupled with a smile, and learn how to change the subject quickly. This tactic will safe you al lot of grief. “I’ll take your suggestion under advisement” is all you need to say.

@OzRusticBride:  You just have to learn not to let these things bother you. Most of them are said with the best of intentions. I’ll bet that in the past you have made such statements yourself- maybe not in connection to a wedding, but in other areas of life.

” Thanks, we’ll take that into consideration.”

@OzRusticBride:  Ugh. People need to butt out. The wedding police aren’t going to shut down your wedding because your cake isn’t iced.

The subject of children can be touchy, but so long as you’re consistent (children and nieces/nephews only) you’re fine. I’m Australian and I’ve been to a few weddings where closely related children were invited and others weren’t.

I feel like that is how all people react to ANYTHING related to a wedding. With complete insanity!
