Are you angry that your loved one dared to elope without you? How dare they, they should’ve waited several years to get married to save up and be in a financial position so YOU could be there. Was your child not invited to the wedding of a loved one and you feel your child should be (as he/she belongs everywhere right?); was your latest flame that you’ve only been dating a month not invited? Did the bride and groom have the NERVE to not get married in the church (or any other congregation) of your choosing? Did the bride DARE wear a color other than white?
Those evil evil brides and grooms, here is my solution for you…..
If you are already married, have a renewal ceremony (don’t want a renewal ceremony? can’t afford it? Oh don’t be selfish, your depriving me of my right to watch you have a renewal ceremony); if not just apply to this advice for when/if you choose to get married: Go ahead and have it, however YOUR day is not really your day, its about me and all the other guests. You better have a location near me (or if its a destination wedding you must pay for my flight and hotel and for my entourage in full if not you’re selfish); not to mention if your guests are all over the country and world, you need to pay for them all. You better invite all of my children too; by the way if any of your other guests are enjoying themselves with alcohol and act anything other than g rated around my child; you will be sued, you better have a 7 layer cake and better wear a dress of my choosing; and anything else I may request. Can’t afford it? Too bad, I’m a guest and have the right to make demands of your special day and the best part is, I don’t have to contribute a dime! Don’t have enough money? Tough, save up for several years for your special day so you can accommodate my requests; because if you don’t accommodate my requests your just plain old selfish. And you can bet your bottom dollar that IF I ever speak to you again (because its YOU in the wrong, not me), that I will be making sly remarks about how your wedding did not suit my tastes. You ruined our relationship!
Don’t be selfish; your wedding day/renewal ceremony should be all about me, after all I made my wedding day all about you so I wouldn’t be labeled as selfish and fear you never speaking to me again, because if you did never speak to me again it’d be all my fault.
So my wedding day is about you, and yours (or your renewal ceremony) is all about me, sound like a deal?

@ihatebees: I think the OP is pissed that people are complaining about her doing the wedding the way she wants to, instead of the way this certain grumpy guest wants her to.

Dear Selfish Bride to Be,
If they don’t like it, they should have said no to the invitation, and they’re acting rather terribly. They didn’t deserve an invitation given their poor behavior.
I’m sorry you have to deal with them. It’s your wedding. I think you and to-be-husband should get to do what you want (within reason, obviously. Please don’t kill anyone or anything like that).
A Well Wisher
P.S.- Good rant!

This is awesome! I’ve never understood why some guests get so weird…it’s NOT their day. I could understand it if a guest got frustrated because you were being a bridezilla, but that’s not at all the feeling I get from your post. Sorry you’re going through this 🙁

I’m the anti-bridezilla (chuckles)
In all seriousness here’s what we’re doing…… (we live on the east coast) we are taking a month off driving across country to get hitched vegas just the two of us (so we can take our time) on the way out taking the northern route to seattle, then we are going to go down highway 101 all the way down to southern california, go to vegas get hitched spend a few days there, then take the southern route across country then once we get to the east coast drive up back to the north east where we live. And it’ll be the drive through wedding, therefore no wedding dress *gasp*. It’ll be the trip of a lifetime and in the end cheaper than a wedding; taking six months to save up for it (we are both self employed so we can take off whenever); plus we want to wait for better weather; don’t want to get snowed in in the middle of the rockys lol. We are also making a point to spend some time in yellowstone national park, yosemite, california wine country and los angeles as well as other off the road attractions we find on the way. 🙂
Most of our friends are happy for us (some jealous because they’d like to do it too but do not have the gumption to stand up to the peer pressure), but some people are giving us hell for it; and our families aren’t too thrilled either.
Take THAT guestzillas!
*sigh* Every bride and groom deserve to have the wedding of their dreams regardless of how unconventional it is; why does everyone think we should all be clones of eachother? Wouldn’t it be a boring world if we were all the same?

And I’m absolutely NOT expecting gifts or after parties or any other type of special treatment from anyone, and neither is my guy.
