“I’m invited, right?”

-all of my 15 year old high school students.  And they’re SERIOUS!

My dearest mother, posted on facebook for all the world to see !
“Had a great day in Barrie with my best friend Kathy; Sadly I still have no wedding shoes but at least Kathy won’t be coming naked!”

Followed up a few weeks later with:
“woo hoo! My wedding shoes came yesterday, along with Kath’s. We won’t be going barefoot.”

It is really sweet to be getting updates from her though (I’m planning the wedding from across the Atlantic!)


My favourite of all time came from my old boss when I asked her if she was excited about her son’s wedding plans coming together. Her reply was:

“The mother of the groom only has to do three things: show up, shut up, and wear beige!”

Haha I forgot my ABSOLUTE favourite

My poor boss – no wonder she wasn’t excited about her son’s wedding. At the bridal shower, in front of everyone, the MOB stands up and shouts: “The mother of the bride ALWAYS trumps the mother of the groom”

@peacheslea:

My Future Mother-In-Law has said the same thing about being the mother of the groom! Show up, shut up and wear beige. But somehow she hasn’t really adhered to that rule…

DH’s parents on our wedding gift: “Oh we already gave you guys your gift! Remember we bought you that table last year?”

DH on selecting a wedding song: DH: “No, all the songs you have picked won’t work” Me: “Why not?” DH: “They are all so cheesy singing about love and romance and all that crap.” Hmmmm I thought that was the point?

My grandma on my bridemaids: “The girls looked lovely except for that one who’s thong I could see. I guess you can’t really wear a slip with a dress that short. Too bad your photos will be ruined now.” This is what I get for allowing the girls to have mismatched dresses haha.

“You can’t have a decent wedding for 10 thousand dollars so you guys shouldn’t even bother”- from SIL

This was about my friends wedding:  “You’re going to have a divorced persons wedding”

Not wedding related but another gem:

“When you finally have kids you’re going to gain a ton of weight since you’re older, you know, in your 30’s” – again, from SIL

Oh! Another one:

Future Father-In-Law: You better not be playing any of that hop-hip club bumping music at the reception.  

Haha, I <3 him.

“I don’t know why you need a fancy wedding dress if only strangers are going to see it.” My mother right before my first fitting. 

“You don’t have to make a big thing out of the exchange of rings, because it will just be the two of you.” A well meaning person offering advice. 

“It’s not like you’re having a real wedding.” Another well meaning person.

It was as though our wedding didn’t need to be special because it was only going to be the two of us instead of two hundred people.

“You can’t have a wedding without a seafood station for cocktail hour.  People will be disappointed.”  -my mother.

funny because I thought all you needed to have a wedding was a bride, groom and officiant.  I never realized sushi and caviar were also necessary.

My fav, from my Fiance the other night who mind you has repeatedly told me that he has no opinion whatesoever about anything and he would prefer I stop asking.  Showing him the great deals I found on silk petals and tulle for the pew bows and lining the aisle…

“You aren’t going to have a runner!?!?!?” 

Ummm.. No, I wasn’t… Is that really what you have an opinion on? 

Cracked me up. 🙂

Mom didn’t like my dress–“You can’t get one that is off-shoulder because you’ll be ephasizing your Japanese sloping shoulders.” (She thinks my shoulders are ugly)

My personal favorite that I hear non stop:

“If this was my wedding I would do it this way…” and then they proceed to tell me what they hate about my wedding. I just don’t care!

Oh yeah, my Maid/Matron of Honor implied that I needed to wear a crenoline under my dress to make me look thinner.
