We went to a yacht wedding yesterday and it was really pretty! She wore the Oleg Cassini short dress and looked fabulous!
One thing I realized was how much guests complain… It really bothered me!!! Some were talking during the ceremony, making smart as! remarks, sizing up the guests… I mean really is that necessary! These were the dates of the grooms friends… and I had the pleasure of sitting right smack in front of them where I could hear everything.
I mean common a wedding takes A LOT of work. It just really made me sad that people can so unappreciative.
It went so quick that it made me wonder if all the little details will even be noticed or appreciated.
I think the planning process has made me more aware and sensitive towards the bride.

I’ve learned that people will complain about anything and everything! It’s sad really…and when I go to a wedding, I try to see the good in everything. Have there been weddings where I didn’t have a ton of fun? Of course, but I don’t feel the need to let everyone else know what I thought went wrong or wasn’t to my own taste. Everyone has their idea of a perfect wedding, and who am I to judge??

In those situations, I like to shoot people dirty looks… because if you (not you, but people in general) say something, you’re adding to the problem of speaking during the ceremony.
I’m having my wedding on a yacht too. It’s nice to hear that it was pretty. 🙂

I always felt like people are only vicious and snarky at weddings if they are jealous of the couple’s happiness or very shallow.

after about 5 minutes of constant yapping I turned around and shot them the meanest look. Unbelievable these women!
I kept picturing myself turning around and punching her in the nose hahah

@EmeraldR: totally agree! You’re supposed to be there in support of the couple, not to nitpick at everything!!! Be happy for them…is that so hard to ask?

I really do think that they were jealous. They didn’t have any problem eating and drinking all night…

I also hate it when people do this AT the actual wedding. No matter how bad a wedding is, at the time I always act like everything is amazing just to keep a positive atmosphere for the bride and groom. After the wedding, all bets are off so if you weren’t fed for 6 hours straight you’re allowed to complain!

ugh that is so annoying! i may have in the past complained about certain aspects of the wedding until I planned my own (though never actually at the wedding) i definitely had to eat my words when i came to learn how hard it is to please everyone!

I just really feel that there is a time and place.. you never know who is listening.

People just like to talk. I’m over it. I guarantee that no matter what I do, people will talk. I spent too much. I didn’t spend enough. Why did I do that instead of that? Meh. whatevs. 🙂
