Everyone kept telling me that I was going to “just drop weight like crazy the weeks leading up to the wedding! it’s so stressful, it happens to every bride!”

WHERE IS THIS PHANTOM WEIGHTLOSS I WAS PROMISED LADIES?

slomotion :  Haha! I wish mine would show up too!

Maybe those people forgot that stress can definitely affect your weight…but it doesn’t go the same way on every person. :-p If I could lose weight from stress, I’d be 100lbs. lol

emitchell456 :  One of my best friends got married a couple months ago, and I helped her with a LOT of planning (I was her Maid/Matron of Honor, definitely didn’t mind helping her out!) But I got engaged about 2 months before her wedding, and she wasn’t very excited for me like I expected her to be (oh well, I was enjoying being excited so I didn’t really care or think much of it). When we announced our engagementt on Facebook, she commented “Lets get through my wedding then we can start planning yours”. Then at her reception, in my speech that I gave, I ended it with saying something about how I was honored that she asked me to stand next to her, and I was excited that she would be doing the same at my wedding next year. And she said “OMG I can’t even think about planning another wedding!” I was really put off but it, but it’s whatever. I know she’s happy for me and she’s expressed that more since her wedding has passed. 

I also can’t stand when girls post countdowns “386 days til I marry the love of my life”.. a week later “375 days until I marry my best friend” etc. Or the girls that post 137210 pictures of their ring every other day. 

Not a bride, but there are a couple older women who always tell me I need to use the decor from their daughters wedding that was 10-15 years ago. Sorry, but your pink tulle and lavender aisle runner does not match my mint green/navy industrial wedding theme. No, I will not change my wedding colors/vision to be able to use your hand me downs. I hate the color pink. Stop trying to force me to do something I clearly don’t want to do! I know they are just trying to be nice by offering to let me use stuff, but once I say “No, thank you though” it means no. It does not mean I will change my whole wedding just to save $50.

emitchell456 :  I had a lot of recently married women tell me that wedding planning was going to be super stressful. Funny thing was, because they told me this, I was waiting for the stress to happen but it never came lol. There was maybe ONE day I was stressed out over something and that was it. I genuinely enjoyed wedding planning!

slomotion :  Haha…seriously. And ice cream! 

It feels so good in the moment, then not so good at the next dress fitting.

missmousey :  Actually no.. I don’t need to drink; at weddings I usually have maybe 2 glasses of wine and I don’t drink most weeks.  I’m commenting on the status of every dry wedding I’ve ever been to – people leave early, nobody really dances, there’s that awkward period of time when everyone’s looking for the bar when they first arrive – but yes, my husband needs a beer or two to have a good time at a wedding with a bunch of strangers.  I think it’s absolutely worth the added expense.  Friend of mine had beer and wine only and it was one of the best weddings I’ve ever been to – they just bought it separately and had two friends tend bar.

SithLady :  Isn’t it?! When I told my husband he was like wtf, never do that, but then again, we don’t use each other’s first names. I mean, it’s his first and middle name. Obviously it’s different for him, but I feel like when someone says your first and middle name, you’re about to get in trouble haha.

futuremrss17 :  you announced her as bridesmaid in your wedding in the middle of her wedding speaches?

im not suprised she didnt take it well, its increadibly rude and you shouldnt of mentioned your wedding at all on her day esspecially announcing it to all her guests…. her guests/family/friends dont care at all if your getting married

“weddings don’t need to be expensive” ” I would rather put the money into the house” “I’m so glad my daughter had her priorities right” 

 

umm… I’m pretty sure you don’t know my budget, or my house expenses and it’s great you didn’t have a massive family that you need to invite.  Arg!!!

I hated when people would tell me I “HAVE” to do something. You have to have a bouquet toss, you have to have a guestbook, you have to have an usher. Umm no I don’t. It’s still a wedding regardless.

I skipped the garter and bouquet toss, did advice cards instead of a guestbook, and I don’t have a wedding ring just my engagement ring. And I’m still alive and just as married as anyone else

DanaWeddingGuest :

I know,  this is so annoyingly funny this “I’ve  discovered married sex’ thing, esp if they attempt to  give unasked for advice.

I  must confess I find calling one’s fiance or husband  ‘my best friend ‘ weird as in ” I married my best friend ”  , which always makes me think  fleetingly ‘ you married who?  !! ”

btob17 :  I don’t think she means she announced it. More like she said something along the lines ‘I was honoured to stand next to you, and can’t wait for you to stand up with me’. Her friend I’m guessing already knew she would be.
