The other day, over a double dinner date, a male friend told me and my fiance that I shouldn’t even try on our wedding day because his girlfriend was going to be the prettiest person there. Okay, yea I get it dude, you prefer your girlfriend, but what ticked me off this most was he said this RIGHT after his girlfriend said “Every bride wants to be the prettiest girl at thier wedding”
Anyone else have stories?

One of my bridesmaids apparently doesn’t like that I follow etiquette so she has told me many times how her friend’s backyard wedding was really personal and unique and memorable, not “by the book” like mine.

The only rude/weird comments I’ve gotten were about my ring, and it was from a father of a bride whose wedding my FH was in last week. He was very interested in my ring, and I told him it was moissanite, which he had never heard of, and he kept going on about how he was going to go home and research it to “make sure I wasn’t lied to and ripped off.” Gee, thanks. Oh well, 99% sure I will never see him again lol

The day before the wedding, my best friend goes, “You’ve lost weight, haven’t you?” Well, yes, I had. About 5 lbs. I explained that I had been working out but recently stopped, and dropped a few lbs. She goes, “Yeah, I can tell, you had a little chub hanging over the front of your pants. I mean, it wasn’t bad or anything, I’m just saying.”

Wow. All of these are awful!
The only one I can think of was when my brother who’s recently engaged made the comment that him and his Fiance are going to have the best wedding, ever. He says this to the girl who’s been engaged for over a year and in hardcore wedding mode. I think everyone believes their wedding is the best, and it is, but why are you telling me this when I’m planning MY wedding?

@Jen51287: Thanks 🙂 That made me smile.
@Ellyson: Oh trust me, I’ve gotten plenty of ring comments. I have a moissanite too, and my fiance and I have been very open in talking about it. This same friend also mentioned to his girlfriend later on in the the night that he hoped she wanted a real diamond. Best man has done the same thing. Why can’t people accept that having a moissanite does not mean it is a fake ring.

OooOooh I like this thread already! I have a few.
My (soon to be former!) boss upon seeing my “non-traditional” (sapphire claddagh) ring: “Oh, that’s it?”
My “best friend” about our wedding date: “I’m missing a bacherlotte party for this, so it better be good.”
My “best friend” in an email about the shower my mom, friends & neighbors threw me: “Do I have to get you a gift?”
The cousin I haven’t seen in over a decade, after soliciting an invite for herself and her 3 brothers, none of whom I’ve met, unless I was an infant at the time: “Can we pay for our plates or something?”
Apparently a good friend of mine told my mother “Well, you’ll need to invite my mother.”

@brandybelle: Let’s hear it for NON-diamonds. Conflict-free’s the way to be.

Hrm. Well, to be fair what I think is the rudest may also be somewhat true. I just think her timing was off and it wasn’t worded in the best way. My partner and I had planned a wedding for last year. A little less than a month before our wedding, we called it off. We didnt explain it to most people, only those that we wanted to. We stayed together for almost two months after that, then we broke up. We got back together, moved back in together, got engaged again, and will be getting married (we’re eloping this time). I haven’t broadcasted it, it’s been more quiet (but I’m not hiding it). ANYWAY. A person I considered a good friend noticed I was wearing my engagement ring and said, “So um, what’s with wearing the ring?” and I explained that things were going quite well and we are engaged, didn’t mention wedding. She asked a few more questions, and I answered honestly (like, our relationship is better than ever, the counseling, etc). THen she says, “Well, don’t go planning another wedding. you know it will just get cancelled and end with you in tears.” A week ago she made a comment about how he doesn’t want to marry me. OUCH.

People are so rude. I had a bridesmaid tell me the hotels I blocked rooms with were all rip-offs.
@MsLobizon: @lanalnoco: @StephieBee: I’m so sorry!!

@CityBearBride: Serious. I’m 5’6″, and am at 118. She’s….not. :/ Totally hurt my feelings.

A friend who was away said “she can’t justify coming back just for a wedding” even thou she found it easy flying back a few weeks before the wedding to see her family for no real reason.
Same girl “I didn’t care when it was me and “Amy” both missing the wedding but now that Amy is going I wish I was too” Thanks.
Thats probably it , and in the end I was glad she wasn’t there cos she’s selfish and all about her and my day was perfect. 😀

While planning the wedding, I didn’t discuss the budget with anyone. We paid for it ourselves. Fast forward to this year and a friend of mine is getting married and asking me for advice while at lunch with another co-worker. One says, I don’t know how people spend $30K on a wedding. So I commented that that’s the average and in our area the average is much higher. So the one getting married asked if I spent that and I sort of made a face like yeah, something like that. And she goes “on what?” I wanted to say on your damn meal, b%[email protected]! I thought it was so rude as if to say, “your wedding didn’t look like you spent that much.”
