- Wedding: October 2012
i told my friend i was having my ceremony right on the beach and her reply was “but Jane (random girl from high school we haven’t spoken to since high school, but who’s wedding pics were on facebook) had her beach wedding in a gazebo, not right on the sand”. and i was like, um, good for Jane, this is how i am doing my ceremony!
oh and i definitely got some comments that my wedding was not “real” because it was not big and fancy and in town.
sorry, they are all coming back to me now! i told my friend i wanted to wear purple shoes. she said with a hint of disapproval in her voice and face “purple shoes with a white dress?”
um, last time i checked, white goes with anything, lol.
The weirdest/rudest ones I’ve gotten have been, “aren’t you too young??” or “Are you sure?”– not from friends, or family members (they’ve all been realtively great) but from random customers at one of my jobs.
I’m almost 25 (which I think is a fine time to tie the knot!) and when people ask, “are you sure?” I like to reply with, “If I weren’t, I wouldn’t have said yes”
Ahh you all are putting the fear in me!! I have to go to FI’s sister’s grad party next weekend and its the first time I’ll be seeing a lot of these people since the engagement. I know they’re going to be asking soo many questions and the worst part is were having a small wedding and I think only 5 people or so who will be there will be getting invites…awkward….
OMG these are hilarious! Great thread!
My worst one came from my sister’s boss. My sister worked at a hair salon, and when I would go in, her boss would shout across the room, “Hey! Have you dumped him yet? You’re making the biggest mistake of your life!” SERIOUSLY?! Just because you had an awful marriage and are now engaged but don’t want the title doesn’t mean that I am commitment phobic.
So far, the only questions I got were “Can I wear jeans?” this was coming from one of FI’s friends, and I just gave him “the look” and said “No, you can’t wear jeans.”
The only other question I got was regarding the food. My Future Mother-In-Law asked if the food was going to be exotic. WTF? I said “What do you mean by exotic” and she says “Well, you know, is it going to be Italian.” I told her that our caterer is the best on the Main Line and whatever we pick out for dinner will be fabulous. I really wanted to tell her that if she is that concerned, to brown bag her dinner
My FI’s Aunt has a family BBQ every year, so this year it is July 30th. They are a pretty fun bunch and I get a long with all of them, but since it is closer to the wedding, and I haven’t seen them since last year, I am wondering if I am going to get any off the wall questions.
My husband’s grandmother wanted to know of our three entree options (mustard-crusted filet, chicken picatta, and roast portabello with grilled mushrooms) which one had the least amount of fat. I was just like, “Seriously? You can’t figure this out on your own????” She also wanted me to call up the venue and ask them for the exact nutrition information on each one. I get that she’s on a fairly strict diet for medical reasons, but if you can’t figure out between beef, chicken in a sauce, and roasted vegetables which one is the healthiest, then how am I supposed to?
The topic ‘Anybody else getting weird/rude q’s about the wedding?’ is closed to new replies.
