@Meowkers: On that note I did just get “What if i don’t like Italian?” My theme is an Italian masquerade so I want Italian food. I just want to scream: “Then don’t F*ing eat!!!”  Who seriously doesn’t like anything Italian? Its not like every single item will be exactly the same.

@lilgrizzlygirl: My grandmother asks me this ALL the time and my reply is “enough, it cost enough.” I don’t know why she needs to know especially since she isn’t helping us financially with any of it.

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!

@Meowkers:  lol about the meal choice, that just made me think of another! i had a choice of chicken or fish. i asked my friend because she never replied to the email i sent out, and she replied with “how will the chicken be cooked?”

@dynamic_duo: I would have responded with: “It will be cooked until it is no longer raw…”

@Corilee13: lol, good comeback!  i wish i had the brains to think of one liners in the moment.  this conversation happened over facebook, so i was able to take a minute to go “uhhhh”.  then i answered her question the best i could by describing what kind of chicken it was!  and she couldnt answer me. it was like 2 days later, she got back to me about the meal choice!

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….

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?
