Hahaha.

My FMIL asked, “When do I get my stack of invitations to mail out to my friends? I’ll probably need between 20-25.” I’m NOT joking!! lol

On a side note, we are only having a wedding with about 100 guests, so she wanted to add on another 25% of her own buddies that we have never even met! Ahh, people are nuts..

It’s more of a cute story, but my cousin just got engaged and his FI was showing off the ring to our family.  My Mom said, “What kind of wedding band are you going to get?” to my cousins FI.  My cousin looked perplexed and said “What do you mean, that is her wedding band”.  And my Mom said “Well you’re supposed to get another band to match it when you get married” (based on tradition).  And my cousin said “Well I wish I would’ve known that, else I wouldn’t have spent so much on the first one!” LOL

I’ve got a good one…

My mom, aunt, FMIL and I were at Davids Bridal for my first dress shopping excursion. My consultant was asking my mom and FMIL questions about FI and I while I was trying to squeeze my ass into a dress that was like 80 sizes too small. Anywho, I dont remember what the consultant asked but out of nowhere I hear my mom chime in with “Well, its not like shes a virgin anyway”. Then my FMIL goes, “Oh, I know. They did used to live in our basement!”.

Thanks Moms!

I just remembered what the consultant asked… I hadn’t told her if I would be wearing white or ivory so she asked my mom. Thats when mommy dearest chimed in with the virgin comment. 

@KaitlinHudson: I would say the time his mom found the lube and placed it on-top of the nightstand so we couldn’t possibly miss it was probably more humiliating than her walking in on us. Weird, I know but there was something so sketchy about the lube incident! 

@brideatbeach: Yea, they dont care. We’ve been together for 5 1/2 years and have lived together for 5 of them so its pretty obvious!

My Mom: So what did you do with all the money you made at your wedding?

Me: What money? We are actually down about 400 bucks after the wedding.

( We obviously didn’t expect to profit from our wedding!)
