As hard as we try to create the ideal day that both reflects the two of us and impresses our guest, there will always be *something* that *someone* hates/doesnt like/is offended by/thinks is tacky.
If you think your big day will be Pinterest perfect and every one of your guests will be positively *shitting* themselves over every detail for the next year, you are excused.
For the rest of us, let’s laugh at ourselves a little and share what guests may hate about OUR wedding. Cash bars, money trees. Paper plates and dollar dances…share them all!
I’ll go first:
Pink dress – Tattooed bride – Backyard reception – Plastic plates/cups – DIY liquor bar -rap/hip hop music – non religious ceremony – drunk bride -hot dogs as a dinner choice
YOUR turn 🙂

- Wedding: October 2013 - Tybee Island, GA
small wedding; no dinner reception (i’ve done gotten crap from that); dessert only reception; paper plates… (why buy fine plates and cups to be used for ONE day). No first dance or toasting 🙂
I’m sorry… people can have their $20,000 pinterest perfect wedding… for one day. I can find better things to spend $20,000 on than trying to satisfy everyone’s needs 😉

Small wedding, long ceremony (religious reasons), no unity candle
Post # 5
Lack of flowers and decorations, no wedding party, too simple, short reception time.
@gigglebox: +1 As long as I’m happy, I don’t care what anyone else thinks. I’m not in debt over it either. So nah! 🙂

@badabing88: Rap/hip-hop – LOVE IT!
For me, not enough seating at cocktail hour, not enough seating for ceremony, non-religious ceremony, May-December couple. Fab.

One meat for dinner and it’s chicken (I’ve already got flack for that), wedding is out of town for everyone (1-1.5 hour drive), bar closed during dinner (just wine on the tables), no flowers as decor (bouquets are the only flowers we are having). I also anticipate a few of my less-than-pleasant relatives will comment on my many DIY items such as bouquets, centrepieces, cardbox, etc, for being “cheap” but I don’t really care.

@badabing88: …the ONE thing people hated about our wedding was that they weren’t invited.

Tattooed wedding party. Lots of black. No floral center pieces. Bouquet and garter toss (complete with Mister all up under my dress). SUNDAY WEDDING!

I’m not officially planning yet (waiting bee) but we may get some grumbling about not inviting kids to the wedding. I do think my BF has a few cousins in their late teens that we’ll invite, but no kids under 16.

That they’re not invited – does that count? My family is way too big to invite everyone and they’re already pissy.
Also – my wedding is going to be casual and in a totally different style venue than my family is used to. They’re going to think it’s too casual and “wedding-y” enough. Hmm -some females on the fam will hate on me and my dress (and I don’t even have a dress yet! it’s just what they do). They’re not going to be crazy about the food. It’s a beach wedding – that’s causing problems for the religious folk who say God is only in a church. Umm my centerpieces are casual and not the type that guests take home. I’m sure I’m missing a lot more lol
I want to clarify that when I say family – I don’t mean immediate fam- but about my extended family (second cousins, aunts uncles etc) – there’s at least 60 of them.

Having to walk 8 minutes from the parking lot to our house. Not ideal, but it’s better than having guests piss off my neighbors by parking along the street. I’m sure 2 bathrooms between 80 guests will not make people happy either.

@badabing88: I remember pics of your dress from other threads and it’s so pretty! Yes, it’s pink, but the design is most definitely classy. Whoever doesn’t like it is crazy.

Non-religious ceremony, HUGE wedding party (I can’t help that FI has a huge immediate family LOL), only our families’ kids are invited, cash bar for liquor, my venue is an irish pub lol, choosing to invite CLOSE friends over DISTANT relatives, we may end up doing a dollar dance, tiniest registry ever and seriously thinking about doing electronic invites because I HATE paper to keep track of!!
My favorite is that I’ve been told many times that I can’t have a wedding for the small budget I have (which they don’t know the actual budget but assume it’s small since I’m frugal). Um yes you can…It’s called budgeting and cutting things you don’t need out. Many will call my wedding tacky but hopefully I’ll have weeded those people out before sending my invites lol

@Nona99: BOOM. I love it 🙂

@GeorgiaBride5: aint that the truth… I have no family helping with expenses so it’s just all me and him… and we would rather use our money for a house and life expenses, rather than a party to impress our family. and as long as we are happy i’m not worried about it 🙂
@LilRhodyGem: bahahaha; my reception at a beach house… i will have what the beach house offers for sitting. 3 couches, 2 recliners. 2 tables with 6 chairs each; and lounge chairs outside 🙂
no harm done
