Yup I hated the whole “MY husband….” crap when my friends did that. Esp with my BFF, I’ve known her DH for about 10 yrs before they got married and afterwards she kept using that phrase even when it was just the two of us hanging out. I swore I would never be like that when I got married, but it’s funny my husband became that person instead 🙂

What an unecessary and uncalled for comment.

Must suck to not be able to have a good time unless drinking…having fun must cost you a bit :/

There is a girl I’m friends with on facebook (acquaintances in real life where it would be awkward if I unfriended her) who got married a couple months after me- well over a year ago. Every 2 or 3 days, she adds between 5-40 wedding pictures to her album. She has been doing this since she got back from her honeymoon, initially using guest pictures/pictures she had taken, etc. then professional pictures. She has 5 different wedding albums on FB, each filled with 800-900 pictures. She also has 2 honeymoon albums wth 400 and 600 pictures respectively. That’s 1000 pictures from their one week honeymoon and ~4000 from one day! Who is going to look through that? On the days she doesn’t upload pictures, she comments on the albums or tags people in them. So now it’s been over a year since her wedding and she still appears at the top of my news feed in some wedding related way almost every day! I unfollowed her about a week ago so her stuff stops showing up, but for a while DH and I were getting a kick out of it. The level of self-obsession there is hilarious. EVERYTHING for this girl is wedding related. Her husband’s grandmother died a couple weeks ago and she posted a picture of herself and her husband kissing at their reception and captioned it something like “I will never forget how MeeMaw thought this was the most beautiful picture! RIP” Barf.

actually it sounds more like your events must ‘suck’ if the people you know are SOOOOO boring they need alcohol to be remotely fun… I kind of feel sorry for you if lifes that empty

I have the opposite at my work. A woman who has never been married and honestly I’m not sure she’s ever been in a long term relationship, likes to dispense marital advice. And raising kids advice. It’s ridonkulous.

I just want you to know, your wedding will not suck one bit without alcohol. It will be a beautiful, memorable day surrounded by friends and family. Too many negative people in the world, do NOT let them get to you.

I have bad anxiety. When I mentioned that I had an anxiety attack because I was overwhelmed with home life, work events, and wedding planning, FIs cousin who is recently married said to me, haha just wait the anxiety gets worse and you’ll feel like you’re going to die.
Like, wait… really? Thanks for that real positive and optimistic outlook…

For what it’s worth, my Future Brother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law had a dry wedding and most of the people I know who attended said that it was the most fun wedding they’ve ever been to! Enjoy your day!

I dont really mind all the posts, pictures, etc leading UP to the wedding. Sure it can get a little annoying but I get for some people getting married is like a life long dream coming true and they’re excited about it. It’s the aftermath where I’m like enough is enough. “We’ve been husband and wife for 72 hours now and its been the best 3 days of my life #Blessed”
Its bad enough Ive been bombarded by your bliss for the year and half from the engagement to the wedding, now I need a weekly reminder that you’re married?” Get real.

When we first got engaged, we got comments from newlyweds like ‘Oh, just wait for the stress to start’ or ‘trust me, you’ll need all the help you can get’ (cos we’re not having a bridal party).
6 Months in and planning has been super easy and we’re practically done. Have planned almost completely on my own with FI’s input.
Lotsa negativity around planning tbh and it just hasn’t been my experience at all. I LOVE IT!!
Being told I have to try on lots of dresses to get a real bride experience. I bought the first one I saw and love it immensely.
One bride said she regretted not spending MORE.

My Fiance and I are planning an elopement with a celebration of some type with our families afterward (trying to keep things low key and private). I recently was at a family member’s huge and drama filled wedding. Family on the in-laws side kept saying, “just you wait until it’s your wedding, it will be the exact same way!”. They also kept saying, “you are going to be freaking out about X,Y,Z,”, etc, which just isn’t true for my type of wedding. I at first tried to explain that we were having a small wedding, but that just fueled the fire! I did get a little annoyed at the whole concept of lumping all brides together and the insinuation that I would suddenly become high maintenance, etc.

“You can DIY a lot and it will save SOOO much money.” After buying supplies, I’ve found its sometimes even more expensive to DIY. Not to mention I don’t have hours and hours to construct 20 center pieces. I work. A lot.
People saying you “have” to have certain things. No mom, I don’t NEED a $40 unity candle. And no, I don’t NEED to provide passed hors d’ourves. Shit’s expensive.
People on this website being flabergasted by how much others are spending and bragging about how “affordable” their amazing wedding will be. I get it, you live in the middle of nowhere and your venue cost $8. We don’t all have this luxury.
People telling me we need to cut our guest list (which is admittedly large). We are only inviting family and friends who are in the wedding party. We just happen to have a big family whom we are SUPER close with. Nothing we can do about it.
