For me it’s the “Oh I am coming to the wedding but can i bring 3+ people with me” UMMMMM EXCUSE ME!!! This is not a Back Yard BBQ. I know it’s going to get more and more crazy as the time goes on. Or my Personal favorite “My friend so and so, didn’t get a save the date, can you send her one” Yes, let me go out of my way to send said indivual i don’t know a save the date card. Give me break!

No specific little comment, just when people get SO riled up about little things, especially little things that don’t really affect them.

 Milibee13:  I’ve specifically told a friend to wear a white dress to my engagement bbq/for all intents and purposes wedding ‘reception’ before we get married. She was like ‘I love this dress but have nowhere to wear it!’ and I was like, ef it, I don’t care. Anyone who confuses her with the bride clearly doesn’t know me well enough to be there!!

I also don’t care if people wear white. Hell, they can wear a wedding dress, I don’t care. I would think they’re a weirdo but it wouldn’t ruin my day, lol.

My pet peeve is people asking if their child can come to a kid free wedding. No! Not your kid, not anyone’s kid. I hate them all equally (I am only kinda kidding ).

Biggest pet peeve so far is the comparisons. My MoH is getting married a year or two after I do and has spent the entire wedding planning process comparing my ideas to the ones she plans to use. She’ll either take the unique ideas that I’ve used or belittle them. From “Oh! That’s really cool, I think I’m going to do that too!” to “Oh…you’re handmaking your decorations? We’ll probably just pay someone to do ours.” or “Oh, you stamped your envelopes for envelope seals? We’re going to do wax seals. Don’t you think that’s a prettier idea?” I just want to scream “You haven’t even set a date yet! Can you please just be supportive for 10 minutes?!” I don’t mean to go all bridezilla, but seriously, as a Maid of Honor, she should be the first to build me up and support my wedding plans. Thank God it’s almost over.

I have no idea why, but my father became obsessed with having our names and the date printed on the cocktail napkins. I decide that I didn’t want to do that because I knew we would have leftovers and, if they were just pretty colors, I could use them at random parties in the future without looking weird. But my dad, seriously, brought this up at least 3 times. He even offered to pay for the “upgrade”. I love you dad, but we’re not putting names and dates on the stupid napkins!!!

I agree with all!! Mine is unreliable people. Yeah we are coming, hmm not sure, not not coming, and then last minute! CAN WE COME! or last minute bailers. I am a person that sticks to my word, if i say i am going to be there, I do what i have to too be there. I dont know what is so hard about this. Plan people. Put things in your calender!

ren89:  She probably doesn’t realise what she is dowing. Apart from the screaming part, I fully support you saying (without the screaming :P), the next time it comes up ” hey it will hurts my feelings that you are constantly comparing our weddings. It feels like you keep putting my ideas down. I really need the support of my MOH right now.”. She’s your MOH you should be close enough that you can say things like that to her.

Milibee13:  I am pregnant and ever since we told MIL she has to give me advice, completely unsolicited about EVERTHING.

When we were having dinner over the weekend she brought out chips and then a veggie tray and dip. I hoovered a bunch of veggies then grabbed a handful of chips and the exchange goes:

MIL: Eat you veggies missjewels!

DH: She had a ton!

MIL: God you must be getting sick of getting advice

Me: Nope, only get it from you (true).

MIL: Well as you get further along you will get more so get use to it

Me: No, I think I am going to get a big shirt that says “if you have an opinion keep it to yourself”

MIL:……

Best feeling ever to shut it down!

I don’t think she means to hurt my feelings about it, but it gets irritating when it’s every little thing. Seriously, envelope seals? Who cares what’s “prettier”? Stamps were cute and cost-effective and matched the wedding theme. Milibee13, I totally agree! I have a sapphire engagement ring and I get that distasteful look ALL THE TIME along with the comment of “THAT’S your engagement ring?!” Same with my dress. It’s ivory and it is actually a wedding dress but because it’s not all full-length and flouncy it’s not a “real” wedding dress. Also totally agree with the inconsistent people! Many pet peeves in the last couple weeks for me!
