I’ve seen this post in the past, and it makes me crack up every time I read it. I think it’s gotten lost, but what comments have people made to you during your wedding process that made your jaw drop?
After the wedding, a woman I worked with wanted to see my wedding band. She looked at my hand and said, “See…it looks much better now that you have your band…it’s not as small.”

- Wedding: August 2009 - Bernardo Winery
Before the wedding I had to Mall employees comment on how pretty my name is and how I shouldn’t take Mr French Bulldog’s name. His name isn’t bad and it made me really sad 🙁
My Aunt also told me the day before my wedding that b/c my Gma was having a hard time getting around w/o a wheel chair, she wished she hadn’t come! WHO TELLS A BRIDE THE DAY BEFORE HER WEDDING HER GRANDMOTHER WISHED SHE HADN’T COME?!?!

Someone told me a few days before the wedding, after they had a few drinks, that they never realized how stubborn I was and that my DIY flowers weren’t going to work and I’d be walking down the aisle with dead, droopy flowers which would be so embarrassing.

This wasn’t said to my face (thank god, would have punched her), but it got back to me that one of my so-called friends was talking s**t about how we probably got engaged because I got knocked up. I have gained weight over the past year – but not baby weight, thank you very much.
I laughed it off because she’s a pathetic excuse for a person and no man will ever love her.

I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten the “You must be having a DW b/c you and your FI can’t afford a real wedding”…LOL.
That one and …”Gosh…your ring is so big and shiny..it’s beautiful…is it real?”…spoken in a stage whisper of course *rolls eyes*
I am convinced some people don’t think before they speak…I am also even MORE convinced that some people know EXACTLY what they are saying and they just want a reaction out of you or to bring you down.

@teaadntoast – LOL a good place to start would be NOT telling mutual friends that the only reason my FI would want to marry me is because i’m pregnant 🙂

My great-uncle, bless his heart, asked my dad if the reason we were getting married so soon was because we were pregnant. We’re not, we wanted a short engagement. But of course, my mom had to reconfirm by asking me. My mom is super cute like that, any time I gain a little weight or complain about the nasuea I get from riding trains, she is always asking me if I’m pregnant. Gotta love moms!
Edit: I wanted to add we got engage in July, and set a date immediately. If we were pregnant, I don’t think I would have wanted to be like 5-6 months along when I got married!

What is it with the mothers and preganancy? My FMIL who, it must be said, had not yet met me when FI proposed, inquired rather delicately as to whether I was “in a family way” when she learned of the engagement.
Edited to add: Is anyone else hugely annoyed when people assume that if you aren’t pregnant now, you will be in the near future just because you’re getting married?

People are so crazy! I haven’t had anything that I can think of, though my fiance invited our family and friends to be there when he proposed and his Opa kept asking everyone “What do we do if she says no?” My parents kept saying “SHE WON’T, TRUST US!” Haha!

Ha when I said I wanted a short engagement I was with my sister and some of her friends and they all said ohhhhh, are you pregnant? (Yes that’s why we’ve been drinking all evening because there’s no way to celebrate a pregnancy like throwing a few back)

my friend was just telling me that she’s playing games with her new bf, trying to get him to chase her. i said that i don’t think that’s necessarily the way to go, my fi would have killed me if i played games with him. she said, “but my bf’s so hot!”
and my fi isn’t?

My FFIL actually sent my FI a text a couple of months after he proposed telling him it was still ok to back out if he wanted…hey, welcome to the family right?! HAH! Then they actually have the nerve to complain that they don’t feel as involved as they would like (whole ‘nother story there my friends, whole ‘nother story!)

“in a family way” just cracked me. LOL!

@JamaicaBride People have said you’re having a DW because you can’t afford a REAL wedding?? Grrr… I hope no one says that to me because I will be pissed. We’re having a DW because that’s what we want. Besides, from talking with some of my friends, the difference (once you include airfare, etc) isn’t all that different. Rar.
