I just watched that “Sh*t brides say” video on YouTube and I have to say, it made me think about the sh*t I used to say about “my wedding” before I got engaged and how that has pretty much all gone out the window:
“HA! I’m not spending over $1000. I’m just going to buy it online from China.”
“HA! PAY for flowers?? I’ll just go down the road and pick some the morning of…”
“HA! Pay for a cake!??! I’ll bake one myself!”
“HA! 100+ people??! I’m not having anymore than 50!”
Aaaand that’s all I can think of now, but would love to hear what everyone else said before they were engaged that they now laugh at!!

“Why stress about bridesmaid dresses! Its easier to let them pick them out themselves!”
“Spend money on invites? I could just print them myself!”
“Hire a planner? What a waste of money” (I don’t have a planner, but really it would make my life so much easier)

“I won’t do THAT when I’m planning MY wedding!”
With any friend at any stage of my life… “Of course we’ll be at each other’s weddings! Of course we’ll be BM” etc etc… It was just ironic to me when the time actually came to select BM and to do a guest list… Not all of those friends were on that list 🙂

“Cakes are overdone. I’m gonna have petit-fours on a pretty tower!”
“My veil is gonna be 20 feet long and hand beaded all down the back!” (PFSHT!!)
“Our guest list is gonna be tiny. Like, no more than 90.” (it was 180)
I *know* there was more. Lol.

I will never cry over a wedding related situation…
I’ve cried. Once. But in my defense, it wasn’t irrational. It was a very justified outburst. 😉

“Invitations are one area that I don’t care about, nobody remembers them and they just get thrown away.”
“I refuse to be meeting people for the first time on my wedding day, so if FI or I have never met them we are definitely not putting them on the guest list!”

“I’m gonna elope.”
Were having a 150+ person full blown wedding. In my defense, I had no idea my parents and FILs would want to pay for me to have a wedding. And I’m happy with the large “real” wedding.

“I can’t wait to get married on the beach in FL in that stunning Nicole Miller black and white sheath dress and have a clam bake for the rehearsal dinner!”
– I’m now in a botanical garden here at home, in a white dress, eating at Spaghetti Warehouse.
“Black and white damask with lime green is my jam”
– Nope. Overdone, IMO. Grey yellow and orange it is.
“I’m doing a dessert bar!!!!!! YAY!”
– Overruled. We’re having cake.

“I can make my own veil! There’s no way I’d buy one”
“Who pays for makeup? I’d do my own, no one would notice”
” Who pays $2000+ for a photographer? I’d never pay that much – I could get a friend to do it” Yeah right.

Hahaha I totally had the invite one too:
“I’m printing my own!!”
In my defense though, I don’t actually own a printer…….
