I have a lot of reactions to things people choose for their weddings. I have specific taste and I don’t iike a lot of the things that are trendy in weddings right now. I won’t share what I dislike since I don’t want to offend any bee who may include these things, but I think it’s totally normal.

@mojitolady: haha I agree on all three of those, also gatsby themed anything.  Do you really want to look back on your wedding and think you look like you are in costume?

@mojitolady:  Oh, okay. I didn’t mean anything negative by my post, haha. Just covering my behind because I know emotions run high on the bee. 

 

I’ve had a lot of mutual friends suggest we go the “country chic” route. This includes a lot of chalkboard signs, mason jars, burlap, etc. Definitely caused a knee-jerk reaction from me. 😛

I’m really not into super-themey weddings.. I’m talking like.. alice in wonderland themed and what not. Where EVERYTHING is themed. I mean, it can be done cute and all, but it’s not something I really like.

I also really don’t like burlap.. at all. Which is funny because our theme is rustic-romance.. we are not using a single shred of burlap. Lots of lace though! Everything is lace.

Nothing else really bothers me. The whole “too trendy” thing for the most part is only because most of us are planning weddings, and we see this everyday. None of my guests are going to know that photobooths are “trendy” because they only go to a wedding once a year or so.. my family has a wedding once every 5 years or so!

 

Things that cause a knee-jerk reaction to me are :

– someone suggesting we should have a “cash bar”

– suggesting we serve kfc or something else really cheap

 

My mother also keeps insisting that I shouldn’t have 2 types of salads, and I should just offer a “typical” salad with iceberg lettuce, cabbage, and carrots. That seems so wrong to me! Like I just bought some store bought iceberg and threw it in a bowl. Not awesome, mom.

I hate bouquet tosses. Maybe bc my friends are late 20s/early 30s & some are touchy about their singleness, I think it’s not necessary to point it out in the middle of a wedding. We are definitely not doing one at ours.  

I love hydrangeas though!  

@jenilynevette:  We’re getting married on a farm and I just said no to burlap as well!

@k8:  On this train of thought, I’m not a fan of the whole garter/garter toss thing.

It really irks me that guests stand for the entrance of the bride and not for the groom.  I don’t really know any natural way to get my guests to stand for FI’s entrance and I don’t want to turn my wedding into a whole big political statement on gender equality, but dammit, he’s fancy and important too!

Hey all! I know this thread wasn’t started with bad intentions, but to err on the side of caution, I’m going to close it now, as per the site’s TOS, we discourage threads that hate on wedding choices. With our large and diverse community, we’ll never all have the same tastes or opinions, but we do try to at least respect one another’s choices. Thanks! 🙂

i.      Please do not post threads or comments for the sole purpose of criticizing, mocking, or otherwise disparaging others’ wedding, waiting, or nesting choices.
