i thought free seats on planes was because they were not sold and even if she had a ticket she could easily get bumped for a paying customer so maybe it was a spur of the moment opportunity

@eloping: you are right. I work at a travel agency, they get extra seats but they can be bumped out of it at any time…

There are pluses and minuses to having an adult only wedding versus a family wedding.  The obvious plus is you can have a serious ceremony and formal party without worrying about little ones interupting. One of the minuses is that once you choose adult only over family then family may assume it’s not a family event, but more of a friends event, so their participation is not as important.

I think with the plane thing… I mean, I know you can get bumped but its just the fact of it. WHY would she come NOW? why wouldnt she “try” to come later so she can attend the wedding. Its just rude.  Im sure some people are attending the adult only wedding who have kids… and they are more than happy to get a night away.

and yes overall, i dont understand what it is about weddings that bring people to crazy town!!!

This pretty much says it all… I always say weddings bring out the crazy in people!  I don’t get it either.

This isn’t about a plane ticket or a family vs adults wedding. It’s the crazy.

 

Weddings do bring out the crazy train. A lot of “opinions” get thrown into the mix that you really don’t even need to hear. Don’t worry, girl. It gets the best of us.

I think it’s the brides that get more selfish.  I’m sure it stings a little that someone doesn’t think that your wedding is the most important thing in their life but it’s not.  She’s got a life outside of you and she gets to live it.

My guess is that she isn’t comfortable leaving her child with a complete stranger.  I wouldn’t be.  There are any number of reasons why she is here now instead of rarranging her life to make your wedding.  That doesn’t make her selfish or rude.

Until children are two, you can hold them on your lap on the plane, thus no paying for the ticket.

Nope not just you. Until I joined this site, I thought everything was just me. I now see I’m not alone, thank goodness. But yes weddings bring out people’s true colors and you see how truly selfish and self absorbed people can be.  It’s pretty disgusting and amazing the depths that people will go to to get their way.
