@marinewife4:  …you wouldn’t worry yourself over what people said about you, if you knew how little they did it.

I can’t really remember any wedding in great detail and it certainly wasn’t anything I discussed with anyone at length…I mean honestly…what is there to say?

@marinewife4:  As long as you have provided for the comfort and enjoyment of your guests, they will enjoy themselves and you will be fine. Details don’t really matter all that much at the end of the day.

I am counting on people finding failt with my wedding from my FMIL down to random guest 110. It happens.

Yes! I’ve been to 2 weddings since getting engaged, and after each of them random friends/family would talk poorly about some aspect of the wedding or another. It made me paranoid!

But then I just accepted the idea that my wedding isn’t for pleasing other people, and even so – you can’t please everyone all the time. I’m just going to do what I like and if people don’t like it they can deal!

@marinewife4:  As long as no one goes hungry or is left without a seat I don’t imagine anyone is going to think anything bad about my cheap-ass wedding. Don’t fret.

To me, the budget of other peoples’ weddings doesn’t matter very much. I don’t care as long as the couple is in love, people approve of the relationship, and they meet the guests’ needs. That makes an awesome wedding- everything I need, and no drama.

I’d rather go to a wedding that cost $5pp with no decorations where everyone is happy and full than a $200pp wedding where the family is upset about the marriage and we have to wait hours for food.

@marinewife4:  I’m more *worried* (that’s relative) about random people on the Internet. Close friends and family don’t have this kind of attitude. In FI’s family there is a wedding every 5 to 10 years. In my family the last one was 3 years ago, and the previous wedding was my parent’s 30 years ago. Really, how could they compare anything and judge ? They’ll just be happy about the event because it doesn’t happen often.

No matter what you do, SOMEONE will find a comment to make about it, and that is true for 100% of life, so it’s something you should learn to not care so much about.

That being said, as long as your wedding provides for your guests and is a good time, there’s no reason anyone should be negative about it!

Of course, everyone worries about this.  Worry about being judged is the main reason that weddings have become so lavish and out of control!

But you’ve got to overcome that.  At the end of the day make sure you are taking care of your guests and being gracious towards them.  Other than that focus on the elements of the day that you really care about and on what it all means.  No one really cares about the cute cake toppers and the hand made straws.  Share your joy with them – and feed them – and people will be happy.

@marinewife4:  lol – i posted earlier today wondering if anyone else was worried their wedding would suck.  I’m afraid people won’t like our wedding either.  I’m sure you’ll be fine and your wedding will be great 🙂
