- Wedding: April 2011
Ok, so laughter is the best medicine and humor is the best antidote for anger, right? To that end, I’m going to start my own little list of the best passive aggressive wedding related comments I’ve heard – mine and other people’s – and remind myself that in the end they are so ridiculous you have to laugh!
– My friend’s aunt to her after she picked her wedding dress. She and her finance moved in together two months before the wedding:
"Oh, you picked the dress, how wonderful. Oh, did you get WHITE?" pause pause "Oh. Really. Ah…I mean, is it PURE white?"
– My single friend to me, in regard to a haircut I am trying out pre-pre-wedding (still plenty of time for it to grow out at this point,) and me on the dance floor at the reception.
"Wow, you got your hair chopped." Pause. No further comments, no ‘It’s cute!’
"Rosey is going to be SO adorable on the dance floor. She is the worst dancer you have ever seen, it is just the cutest thing ever. I love watching her, it’s so funny watching her trying to move to a beat!" (um…I am from a culture where dancing is huge. I have plenty of rhythm, thanks very much!)
– My older relative to me, in regard to the idea of having cupcakes.
"Cupcakes. Really? Aren’t those for, you know, kids birthdays? Hmm. Well, I mean I guess it would be cute if you’re doing kind of a birthday party backyard barbeque theme. You can have pony rides for the kids, too."
– My single friend to another friend, after she announced her engagement. This comment was about five minutes later, apopros to nothing
"Yeah hey, remember when X dumped you in high school? Man, that was rough! No warning, and suddenly he was going out with X! You poor thing."
Feel free to add on! Someone should do a study, I think there is some cultural or evolutionary phenomenon surrounding weddings that is guaranteed to bring this kind of thing out in fellow females!
