@emersynsmommy35: wow… jealous much?  I wouldn’t let it get to you.  Just roll your eyes and go on about your day.  and stop telling them stuff about your wedding. 😉  

sorry you gotta deal with this, though 🙁

Ummmm…hate to rain on everyone’s party, but I am also having cupcakes & candy bar…I probably stole them too.

They aren’t really unique elements anymore…I almost half expect a candy bar now! However they are totally FUN so I say include them.

There are also fun ways you can make them different -the last wedding I was at had a chocolate “themed” candy bar.

Just talk to Future Sister-In-Law when you can and see what you guys can work out. It doesn’t even sound like its her who has the issue anyway!

so what if you both have a candy buffet and cupcakes… I think they are being really childish!

Umm yeah, he needs to get over himself. Glad that Fiance stuck up for you and is showing them that they are overreacting!

You should tell your Brother-In-Law that Rock Hugger is also having cupcakes at her wedding in FL – and sorry I stole his “unique” idea! Smile

I would just try and let it go.  Like you’ve said none of those things are unique.  Are you sure who’s upset here?  Is it his bro and their mother?  Or is Future Sister-In-Law really upset?  Sounds like they’re nit picking to find something wrong with you.  You could explain once to them that these are not original ideas they came up with and that you’ve been equally excited for them for just as long and you found them online/in a magazine.  Try not to let others get you down as you plan your wedding.  It is your big day!

ha ha ha, give them a link to this site and they can see first hand how “unique” their ideas are. Your Fiance is right. Cupcakes and candy buffets are in like every bridal magazine and blog right now. You can probably pick up a copy of Brides at the store right now and find a cupcake tower or links to candy wholesale vendors.

cupcakes and candy buffets are hardly even close to “unique”


I work a wedding every weekend for the last 3 years… 9 out of 10 of them have candy or cupcakes and often times both.

@emersynsmommy35: I have a suggestion to END this once and for all: find a magazine that has candy buffets in it and SHOW IT TO THEM!!!  That way, they cannot argue that it’s “unique”, especially if it’s in a freaking wedding magazine that can be found ANY where!!!!!

ok, so I’m the type that would do that just to piss ’em off in the sense that they can’t claim they’re the only ones who ever came up with this idea, lol.  

sorry you gotta deal with this and I completely understand the frustration!
