Just for fun, what are the weirdest, funniest or just plain dumbest questions you’ve been asked about your wedding? I don’t mean this in a grumpy mean-spirited way, I just thought it might be fun/funny to share. These are mine!
“What will we wear if it rains?” From a bridesmaid. The wedding is indoors.
“So, have you chosen your dress yet?” I was asked this last weekend. We get married next month, you’d hope I’d have my dress!
“Does my handbag sound too big for a wedding?” This one wins it. I’m not sure I even understand the question!

Hah, the week before our wedding, my husband’s aunt suddenly had to cancel after RSVPing yes for her and 4 other family members (grrr). She sent us a quick email to cancel and included this gem:
“Why not just reschedule the wedding for sometime in the spring? We could definitely make that!”
Yeah ok. I’m gonna move the wedding back 3-4 months with 1 week’s notice to all our guests and vendors because a group of relatives we see once every few years can’t make it. NO PROBLEM.

@Moomin: Haha I’m right with you on the dress thing. I had people asking me if I’d chosen my colors a month before the wedding. I just sort of stared and blinked and finally answered “… yes.”
I mean, did they think we were just going to throw these things together overnight?!? I’m sure I have plenty more but I’ll have to think about it for a minute!

My personal pet-peeve, and I found it weird when people asked:
“Where am I sitting at the reception?”
And I also hate:
“Do you have a lot left to do?” And then they don’t listen to the response.

@anghp: and don’t forget the people who ask “so have you got everything done?” when there’s still 3 weeks to go. I’m like, well, no. I still have three weeks worth of stuff to do.
I guess after picking my colors and dress a month out, I was supposed to get everything else squared away in the intervening week so that I could spend the last three weeks before the wedding relaxing???

@iarebridezilla: I’m with you on “so do you have everything done?”
It drives me nuts. I have finally started telling people that it’s not completely done until my very last thank you card goes out 🙂

“But are you getting married for real?”
This one has an explanation… my cousin got engaged 2 years ago, started plannign a wedding and then cancelled the whole thing for money issues.. but they’re still engaged. Every 6 months they say they’re getting married and then never mention the wedding again. It was still a weird question.

I’m still 9 months out from my wedding, but I was asked on FB if my fiance was going to make it to the wedding. Uhm… yeah, I kind of need him there to get married to him.

@misspeanut: you mean you didn’t immediately move the wedding?!
People are weird…

A family friend asked me if my parents gave me lucky days to choose from… we are all Taiwanese, and apparently this friend’s mom gave her like 5 days that are lucky in our culture to choose from for the year that she got married and only 2 fell on Saturdays… I can’t imagine planning around that! (The answer is no) 🙂

“Can I meet you ladies at the hair salon a little bit later? I would like to get extra sleep.” – Sister-in-law Bridesmaid
I wanted to say to her, “so would I, but we are doing this TOGEHTER.”

I get this one all the time. “So the big day is getting closer. What do you want me to wear?” Seriously, I’ve had to pick out my dress, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, Grooms/GM’s cloths, flower girls, ring bearer (these are give, yes). But I also have had to pick out my grandmother’s and mother’s outfits, FI’s grandmother’s and mother’s outfits, my dads cloths and I just had a random guest ask me this the other day. I wasn’t aware the bride was suppose to ditact everyone’s attire. It’s gotten to the point my answer is “clothes preferably.”

This is a second wedding for both Fiance and I and I have gotten the questions, “Oh you’re having a real wedding?” and “Oh, you’re wearing a real dress?” No I am having a fake wedding and wearing a fake dress…really?

It kinda fits the question…
I had my best man ask if we were going to have “Kid friendly” food. When I said “Pizza and beer” I think he about peed his pants (out of pleasure).
We have a popular local pizzaria bringing a portable wood fired oven to the property and cooking them up on the spot. We’ll have Pizza, The Worlds Best Mac & Cheese, Salad, Rosemary Bread, fresh fruit, all kinds of drinks (soda, juice, coffee, wine, beer, etc).

My favorite was from when we were still announcing our engagement. I would be standing around showing off my ring (you all did it, don’t lie!) and someone would say “So did you say yes?!”. Um… nah. I just took the ring and ran off.
