I saw this on another board and wanted to see some answers from you guys
I haven’t had any very interesting comments myself except for
— Why the heck are you getting married in November?? Because that is what worked for us and our schedules and the venue was available.
— Or random people asking to be invited… and seriously asking too!!

– why are you having such a long engagement?
– is your wedding going to be outside? I don’t want my heels sinking in the grass…..
– I am invited….right?!?

“you’re wedding is in the winter? the dead of winter?”
“how much is your wedding going to cost?” – that question REALLY made me mad- the nerve!

My dad upon learning that our wedding is probably going to be at the Mirage Volcano asked if he could wear a sarong to the wedding. Uh, sure? Haha. They play tiki music during the show part so I guess he thought it would be fitting.

“How much are you spending on your wedding”
“Oh i wouldnt do that its tacky”
“Well I wont come unless you do this” (well you were never going to be invited so it doesnt matter)
“Your thinking about doing a backyard wedding? Why would you ever do that”
“Your not getting married in a church, well Fi is going to have to begg the church to let him marry again when you too get a divorce” (wish i was lying about this one from FMIL)
“Dont do catering we can cook it all ourselfs” (This lady sucks at cooking when its a small group of people)
“You already have 2 kids and are living together whats the point in getting married now”
And more sadly…

-Asking the budget
-asking if so and so is invited
-saying i HAVE to have chair covers
-saying (jokingly) that they won’t come unless it’s an open bar (they were kidding, but still, RUDE)
-Asking why we’re having it on a friday night

@Evie19: Well, the cost question can work two ways. If they are just being nosy, then screw ’em. But I had a dear church friend ask me what I was being charged to rent the church. I openly disclosed any bugetary information I have up to this point, and offered her advice, if she ever needs it. I wish someone had done that for me. I had no idea what I was getting into, and if I can help out another young’un, then awesome!
But as for strange questions….
“So, you’re totally inviting us, right?”
“Can I bring my girlfriend, my best friend, AND his girlfriend?” *seriously?????

I have a co worker who had her Bridesmaid or Best Man ask if the Bridesmaid or Best Man and BM’s boyfriend could STAY IN THE BRIDAL SUITE WITH HER!!! Ummm, what? Do you understand what a bridal suite is?
I’ve also had someone ask what I’m wearing the first “night” as a married woman…. this was not from someone I’m close with!

@vmblai1019: Yes, you’re right it definitely depends on the context.
The person who asked me had just met me and was explicitly asking to see how expensive everything was and if I was going “all out” in front of a lot of other people. There was no other reason he wanted to know, other than his nosyness. It was very very rude!

“How much is ________ going to cost?” would probably be the most popular.

“There’s an open open bar right?” The person was implying they wouldn’t come without one. There is an open bar, but I was still offended.

I had a friend ask if she could stay in our honeymoon suite with us that night.. at first i thought she was joking… but then i realized she didn’t want to drive herself back to her house that is a whopping 15 mins away I guess. Or if she plans on drinking, have a dd?? Don’t get it…
