LOL! Nothing so interesting on mine, just the socially inept/extremely rude, alcoholic, emotional ice, piece of crap father of my cousins (all three are in the wedding, as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, Jr. Bridesmaid or Best Man, and ring bearer).

  • Wedding: April 2010

Hmmm, well – we’re inviting my high school prom date/guy I lost my virginity to/longest bf I’ve ever had (still longer than Fiance and I have dated!!) & FI’s high school prom date.  I think those are the only really odd ones.

EDIT: To explain, I dumped my high school Boyfriend or Best Friend when I went to college.  He stayed in touch with some of our friends from that period and about 6 yrs later started dating my best friend (who’d dated and gone to prom with one of HIS friends)  They got married this summer, and I was Maid/Matron of Honor – it was great to see his whole fam again=)

Ooooh good post! I’ll stick with just the especially bad ones though I could go on:

Too many random relatives I never see/talk to to count, my mom’s psycho crazy “friend”/business partner who drama follows around like flies to s**t, a bridesmaid who I have since begun to absolutely loathe, a best man who I REALLY cannot stand and his meth-addict looking pseudo-girlfriend, my MOH’s Boyfriend or Best Friend who doesn’t own any dress clothes and has social anxiety and doesn’t know anyone else there, and last but not least my aunt (who used to be my uncle) who since her surgery has become one of those “all about me” people and uses all family get-togethers to pull her “I am now woman, hear me roar routine” and makes everything all about her. SHE is the person that will wear white to my wedding, guaranteed.

@ Kitty- I think your “aunt” takes the cake!

I have two sets of great and aunt and uncles that my family laughed out loud when I mentioned their names to get their addresses. One of these great aunts was in the hospital on a psych hold last fall. And the other couple are money hungry and have sued people so many times for rediculous things. I just hope they don’t trip and fall and try to sue my vendor (they have done this before only no to my vendor:))

  • Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden

Well, originally, we had only our closest friends and family on the list, and since we both get on very well with our families, there were no “worst” guests. But now, my mother is insisting that we invite a bunch of friends we don’t really know, so the “worst” guests are just strangers.

The best is everyone else. 🙂

A few relatives I havent seen since my first birthday, MOG who is determined to ruin the wedding, and several alcoholics who havent grown up yet… that will probably try to play beer pong at the head table 🙂

Haha! We haven’t gotten RSVPs back yet, but ones I know for sure will be there as they are all close fam/friends include:

The nudist doctor, the Marxist philosopher, the thrice divorced friend who will marry us, several alcoholics (on both sides), Obama’s former White House counsel, the spot-light stealer, the “I’d-tell-you-what-I-do-but-then-I’d-have-to-kill-you” Army guy (my fave cousin!), a gaggle of adorable children, and a bunch of “sometimes” vegetarians.

Last but not least – our 6 year old Godson, who announced, when we told him we were getting married and he would get to fly cross country for the wedding “Umm, so I’m suppose to fly all the way across country, just to see them kiss on the mouth??!! Umm, NO!” LOL

-The alcoholic

-Aunts who criticize/judge everything

-The asshole to his wife

-The bitter wife planning her escape from her marriage

-The formerly slutty woman who is now a suburban soccer mom

-The everything I eat must be organic woman

-The nuveau riche cousin who is now a snob

-The friend who loves to argue about anything (politics, religion, traffic, whatever it is, he turns it into a debate)

-The woman desperately holding on to her youth and ends up throwing up at the party coz of too much alcohol

-The emotionally unavailable dad

-The rebellious sister

-The super jealous fiancé of a groom’s man (she may not even come coz some of groom’s man’s ex-gf’s will be at the wedding


Despite their flaws…they’re still family/friends so we still love them (or accept them) nonetheless.  Fun times!

I guess the only characteristic of our wedding were the gaggle of alcoholics we invited.  Namely, my side of the family and my parents friends!  That’s ok though, we like alcoholics, they made the reception interesting!

Worst: My high school prom date (hes actually a super sweet person and we are really close to his family so hes not the “worst” just oddest) and my Fiance first cousin, shes a prostitute. (for real) SOOOO not looking forward to her being there!

A convicted felon as a best man, feuding Future Mother-In-Law and FSMIL, pre-teen drama queen, grandma that hates everyone and everything, just like hazel920 – I have an aunt who judges everything… and whispers about it all, a groomsman that has false teeth (motorcycle accident) and loves to remove them as a party trick, ex bf’s mothers who refuse to go uninvited, and a neighbor (40ish yrs my senior) that I think is starting to develop a lesbian crush on me.
