I agree , I hate the junk mail .

   But my biggest pet peeve has to be people telling me not to get married.
I understand that not all relationships work out and that some people have really bad experiences , but stop raining on my parade! Most of this advise is coming from people that barely know me, and know NOTHING about my Fiance. I just want to tell them " I’m wearing my Big Girl Pants today and I think I can decide how to live my life!." But I usually just smile at them for being so sage…

RSVPs.  People don’t get back to you, don’t read instructions, rudely ask you to extend invitations to significant others, children, etc.  The list goes on and on.

People (even normally computer literate people, not just my grandparents) who don’t go to the wedding website. The invitation says that ALL the information is there. I can’t tell you how many people have called my mom asking if we’re going to send out hotel information. ARGH!

Also, people waiting too long to make travel arrangements and then expecting us to bail them out.

people who insist i must be nervous/freaking out/depressed over the loss of my single life… well i haven’t been "single" for a while, and i’m sure i’ll get more anxious as it gets closer, but if i’m not worried right now, why insist that i must be?!

People calling the day before to ask for directions. You had two months people! I provided the name of the venue and the address for our web savvy guests, and the manager of the IT department had to have me print out directions for him. Sheesh.

How about vendors thinking wedding = ripping people off? I’m up to my ears in estimates that are more than twice the budget that we gave the vendor.  Grr.

– my fsil.

– being told over and over that jus tbc we are inviting people doesnt mean they will show up. i am not thinking i can hedge my bet on that with nearly 300 people on my guest list and only a 130 count given to my caterer.

We are paying for 1/2 of the wedding ourselves (My parents are paying for the other.) and I am sick of not having money to spend on anything else. I could scale back, but that wouldn’t be fun;)

Both moms. 

My mom who keeps telling me she wants to help.  She forgets that I have asked her to do things, given her multiple lists, reminded her a half dozen times to get the stuff done and then, weeks later, just end up doing it myself.  I finally stopped asking as it was less effort and hassle for me to just do it myself from the start.  So now she’s complaining to friends and relatives that I won’t let her do anything!  UGH!

FMIL who is almost completely uninterested in the wedding.  What little she has offered to do, she just takes the quickest and easiest option just to get it done.  FI and I have tried to nicely refuse her offers to pay for anything so that we can do things the way that we want them but she’s insisting she’s going to "do her part".
