Now that we’ve sent our invitations, I’ve had a couple of really weird questions from those invited. Two of my favs are: Is it going to be long? and Will there be meat? (FI and I are not vegetarian, and neither is the guy who asked).
I know that these aren’t super rude questions, but definitely took me by surprise. Have you guys experienced this at all?

People ask the oddest things about weddings… I definately had a few that threw me off. People say weird things that day too! haha!

hahaha the meat thing is epic. Yes I get weird questions constantly, I just ignore them and let people stew in their own oblivion of stupidity and lack of manners.

I hate when people ask me if I’m pregnant. Just because we’re getting married, doesn’t mean I’m pregnant. I’m honestly tired of this question!

Haha My favorite was “Is your daughter coming going to be there?” um yeah.

I had a cousin ask if dogs were allowed? When I looked at him surprised, he said, “well you love dogs, right? I figured you wouldn’t care”. Yes, I love dogs. No, your dogs are not allowed at my wedding. My dogs aren’t even allowed at my wedding. wow.

we had 2 couples (friends of our parents) that said “we didn’t get our invitations yet, are we going to be invited?” – to our parents. so, after a lot of hemming and hawing, i reluctantly invited them (both couples). neither sent in an RSVP. when asked by parents if they were coming – “oh, no…we just wanted to get an invitation.” WHAT?!?!?!

The meat question made me laugh. I’m vegan and so is our wedding, so people should ask us… but aren’t!

I get that one too. People are so opposed to marriage in my area (well people my age anyway) that that seems to be the only reason to get married. Its so irritating.
I get the: Are you sure? Why do you want to do that? Don’t you want to live more (meaning have sex with more people)? Whats the point? Apparently I need to act like a raging slut until I’m considered too old or I get pregnant by some random guy before I get married.
The worst one is: How could you get married before me!? I’m older!
That one was from my step sister. She is a whopping 5 months older than me. Its like “5 months is not an age gap of significance, get over it. I’m getting married before you because you don’t have serious relationships, like to party, will sleep with any guy who says you are pretty, and have been “dating” your boyfriend for a whopping two months. Again, get over it. You were engaged once. To a great guy. You dumped him to party and do drugs.”

I get those same questions too. My mom said I need to have more “life experiences”. I asked my dad about that, and he said, “WTF does that mean?” lol It was pretty funny. I hate that people can’t just be happy for you and not ask a bunch of off-the-wall questions.

I personally hate that. I have had plenty of life experiences. Its not like I’m 16 and swearing I will marry my highschool crush (which happens for some people and thats awesome but not for me). I’ve gone to college, lived on my own, traveled a little bit. But traveling alone sucks. The other experiences in my life I want to share (like a house, kids, trips to Europe, not necessarily in that order) with my Fiance. WhatI gather people mean by more life experiences is partying and sleeping with random people, which I never did in the first place so why would I start.

I used to live in Southern CA and moved to Northern CA. We plan to have wedding in Northern CA. At the beginning of the planning stages, a few of my dad’s friend asked me why we have the wedding so far away and will be inconvenience for the guests. I told them because I no longer live in Southern CA, I can’t plan a wedding alone in south while I live up north. I gave them a smile and a shrug after that. Now I have no clue if my dad invited them or not, and if he did, not sure if they’ll come.

Do these people think invitations grow on an invite tree somewhere? Those things cost money!
Please please please tell me you said all of these things to your step-sister! It would totally make my day hahaha.

I’m so glad I didn’t get any stupid questions from guests. I think I would’ve lost my mind.
