I’m most taken aback that you had to share a place setting!

That sounds like a nightmare. You’re more patient than me. If someone had said I had to share dinner, a plate and cutlery with DH at a wedding I would have left right then and there. And possibly taken my gift with me. It sounds like they gave zero consideration to their guests. I mean, crap happens at a wedding. Your officiant screws up parts of the ceremony? That sucks, but it happens. Your veil goes missing? Yep, it happens (believe me). But to not have enough plates, food, cutlery, or beverage options for your guests? That’s just disrespectful to your guests. And then to bring out a box of booze and tell everyone it’s not for them?! What in the world?! Ugh people make my head itchy.

I would be soooo curious to know what the bride thought of the wedding.

@bakerella: This exactly.

The make a baby music, the preacher’s mistakes, and the tacky bridal party dresses are just taste differences that I’d shrug at (and probably make fun of later)…. but to treat your guests so inconsiderately? No excuse! Where did all the money go!?

Sounds to me like the guest list grew too big and no one put a stop to it. How many guests were there?

I’ve heard of couples sharing a program, but their plate and utensils!? That’s rediculous. How did they spend $28,000 without having enough plates!? I’m mostly shocked/confused by the actions of the venue and/or caterer – unless they literally did not own enough plates to bring you (and then there should have been a limit to the guest list), how could they allow people to share like that? Also, if guests are obvioulsy hot and thirsty, how hard is it to bring out a pitcher of water from the kitchen? Geez.

I admire you for staying as long as you did.

Whoa. I love my man, but I like to have my own fork. Did the rental company flake on them or something?

28 grand is a big deal in my hometown, too. I wish we were getting married there–it would be cheaper! But everyone would have to drive four extra hours to get there (most people are already driving a couple of hours), so we’re sticking with the expensive city.
