AMEN, sister.

We’re 2 years out and already I have this sinking feeling that our families are going to try to turn this wedding into a) family reunion (NO I am NOT inviting great uncle whoever!) and/or b) all about my nieces/nephew because my sister is self absorbed and thinks that the world revolves around her and her children. She already has made it very clear she will not attend if the kids can’t go. HMPH. (21+ wedding. Trying my best to stand firm and yet still be amicable, but if she pushes me much more…)

And then there’s my mother who wants a set of invitations so she can invite her friends who I have never met in my life. Because she simply cannot sit with the rest of the family, oh no! She mentions this demand after saying, quite frankly, “I hope you don’t expect me to pay for any of your wedding.” (No, we are paying everything ourselves, thanks. Gladly!).

Ugh…

Someone here once said she had someone ask if they could borrow the photog during the wedding Oslo the guest could get some family shots for a holiday card.

WAIL away…

And as LOUD as you choose…

Because based on many of the posts I see in the WBee ETIQUETTE BOARD, I don’t think there are enough people out there who natuarally KNOW how to be a “Good Guest”

I get how Brides complain about all the RULES OF ETIQUETTE in our more “laid back” lifestyle…

But honestly, after reading some of the topics, I’m thinking that common decency and MANNERS seem to have gone out the window

I guess I should consider myself lucky… at over 50, the majority of my friends & family members GET IT having grown up with such expectations… so hopefully I won’t be pulling my hair out like other Brides at the last minute

Personally, ya know if I was facing what so many of you all are… I think I’d find my inner Bette Davis and no doubt find a way to give someone a piece of my mind…

People have business meetings booked 60 days in advance that they can’t reschedule? Are you seriously kidding me?  Which planet are they from?  You don’t ask someone to change the date of their wedding; you either accept or graciously decline. FECK.

If it makes you feel better my grandmother and grandfather told my husband and I at the Courthouse to hurry the wedding along because they had to be on the road before traffic (even though they left the house late and I had to move the ceremony back to accomodate them)so my wedding was an inconvienience to them. Still hurts.

SING IT SISTER! This wedding is not a college reunion y’all. I’m a month away from saying suck it to anyone who acts a fool about this stance.
