While you were/are planning your wedding, who bothered you the most about it? Whether they were dissing the plans, or budding in, who bugged you the most?
For me, its my grandmother. She got married to move out of the house. She obviously hates married life, and never got divorced. She loves my fiance. But, she does not think we should get married. We’ve been together for 8 years, and we’ll be married after our 10 year anniversary. She thinks that is ‘rushing into marriage’. I can’t talk to her about anything to do with the wedding. And if a wedding in general gets brought up, she gives me a lecture. It drives me crazy!

My mother mostly. She really wasn’t supportive of the wedding, and now that she’s coming around, she feels that it’s ok to remind me that I’m fat.
My FSIL has also been kind of annoying. After she found out we had set the date, she was constantly reminding me that she’s allergic to everything under the sun and has been rubbing it in my face that she got married first. Well, first of all, she’s 24, I’m 21. She dated her DH for 6 months when they got married, I’ve been with FH over 2… Why does it matter who got married first? It’s not like anyone actually approved of her marriage to FH’s brother… sorry. She’s been irritating me today and I’ve honestly had enough of her at present.

After 10 years…. that’s kinda funny. Grandma’s and how when their minds made up it’s made up. lol
I couldnt’ pick just one… DH family gave quite a few problems.
MIL just didn’t like me and liked to guilt DH about “leaving” her
FIL REFUSED to wear a tux… even though DH really wanted him too
extended family pretty much started planning their OWN wedding when it came out of what we were doing… morning, brunch, etc….
oh yea…. they weren’t invited! lol
I guess really though she was worse for me and he was worse for DH. sigh family and weddings….
I think that if family figured out that it was the Bride and Grooms wedding and NOT theirs.. REGARDLESS of who pays for what… everything would go MUCH smoother. *nods head*

I have not had a single problem with my whole entire family throughout the planning. Co-workers who are not even invited on the other hand…

Oh goodness, my mother. because she’s crazy! Like today I ask her to help me make a decision about my shoes. I give her two options for type of shoe: this one or that one? and then three color choices: pick one of these… and what happens? she asks me if i’m serious and proceeds to go find me a more suitable pair of heels instead (i want to wear sandals) and gives me some lame speech about paying a lot of money and then “cheapening” my dress with my shoes! UGH. I don’t know why I even bother telling her anything!
oh yeah, and we still have 479 days to go 🙁

My co-worker has been driving me crazy. She criticizes everything I pick out. I have learned to just ignore her. lol

I have certain extended family members who just can’t wait to criticise every little thing…it really gets old.
My grandmother can also be quite negative, but she means well.

My mother…she was a nightmare through the entire planning process. So much so that I couldn’t wait for my wedding to be over and to be on my honeymoon where she couldn’t bother us anymore.

My mother made me NUTS. She is very controlling and over-sensitive.

I’m only in the beginning stages and I voted my Fiance! because he is a ball buster and we will make a decision (which is hard for me to do because I’m indecisive) and then the next day he will say something to make me second guess the decision just to be funny, even though he is fine with the decision we made!
He’s such a pain in my butt, good thing he’s cute!
