hahaha! I can just see a girl rolling up, folding chair in tow, and setting up shop behind your brother, just sitting there staring at her lap because she’s not allowed to eat. Yea right! Boys (especially if they haven’t been through wedding planning) just don’t understand!

ROFL.  Too funny.  LOL.  I’m sorry.  BUT, we all have to have AT LEAST 2 in the family, right?

OMG. I’m sorry you have to deal with that, but that’s one of the funniest pieces of ‘logic’ i’ve heard in a while!

Oh my goodness, tell him your venue doesn’t allow outside chairs! 😉

Jezzybell, it’s so true, we all have at least one of them in the family.

If it makes you feel any better, almost everyone I’ve talked to about wedding food says that there is always like 10% extra food … don’t exactly know why, but that’s what multiple people have said. 

They’re like, if you have 150, tell them you have less because they always make too much food and add it in for extra- if that’s what you plan to do. 

If not, it’s your day. Tell your brother to suck it up for one night. If they’re on and off all the time, he really doesn’t need to stress you out … it’s one night. KWIM? He’ll understand.

Um, if it makes you feel better (or makes the rest of you laugh harder)….this actually happened at my wedding! Ok, she didn’t bring her own chair and set up shop sans dinner, but the story goes about the same up until that point.

My husband’s cousin has had a tumultuous, emotional, on-again-off-again relationship with the same girl for the last 5 or 6 years.  And every time it was over it was "really over this time".  When I sent out wedding invitations, I asked if she should be invited (our rule was SO’s only, no dates or random guests as we were having a really small wedding at my Mum’s house).  I didn’t invite her because it was "really over" and because my husband’s family actually said she might try to show up on her own saying "well, technically, I WAS invited" and cause a big stink.  That’s the last I heard about 8 months before the wedding.

Apparently though, they got back together a few weeks before the wedding and he decided to bring her, all without mentioning it to my husband or I along the way.  At least there were no shouting matches or fights 🙂

That’s too funny! Oh, little brothers…

So what was your brother’s response to your saying no to his request?
