This happened to my friend and like you said it is really hurtful.  The thing I noticed is that it was always people who were jealous or wanted to make their own wedding look better.  So, try not to let them get to you.  They doing it on purpose, whatever the reason.

The only time I have ever said anything negative is when specifically asked about something that did go wrong and they want to know how bad it was for the guest.  My response has always been, "yes, we noticed, but we thought nothing about it because we were having such a wonderful time."

  • Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country

Eew!  Horrible!  Why would someone do that!  I think they are probably just teasing but wow, that’s harsh.  As long as you liked the music, I think that it shouldn’t matter, and the fact that you even HAD a cookie bar is cool.

  • Wedding: September 2018 - The Desmond Hotel in Malvern, PA

I had people point out a few things that they didn’t like (stupid crap, like the hotel we had the reception at where everyone stayed didn’t have nightlights in the room or bathroom. Gee, sorry, I should have looked at that before booking the place????), but I just brushed it off.  And actually, the same person once said about my brother’s wedding (my brother whom she had never met and whose wedding she had no idea of what it was like) that it could have "fed a lot of hungry people." Just because I said it was "beautiful" didn’t mean we were all swimming in money the whole time!  I was offended but I’ve realized that some people just can’t say nice things and it’s not worth my energy to take offense. I’m sorry that people are being jerks to you…. they are probably just jealous and don’t know how to say anything nice!

I wouldn’t worry about it – It’s not like a chandelier fell off, food was all bad etc etc bad incidents. In all probability, they were jealous that they couldn’t have that wedding you did! 🙂 If it helps, a centrepiece fell over at a wedding I attended recently (tall vase filled with water and flowers), water was spilt on the table, rendering 1 side of the table unusable till the water dried up and everyone went on partying!

I guess this isn’t about my wedding (since I’m not married yet), but my fiance’s brother is getting married 3 months before us.  My fiance’s brother’s fiance asked me to be a bridesmaid, so we went dress shopping.  While in the dressing room, she was zipping the dress up for me, and said, "you know, you should just get a smaller size or two, because you’re going to want to lose weight before the wedding, right?".  My jaw hit the floor!  What an awful thing to say!  For the record, I’m 5’7" and 130 lbs…I don’t plan on intentionally losing any weight.  🙂

oh my gosh I’m so sorry! I can’t believe anyone would say that… guest expectations shouldn’t make you feel like that:(

That’s so terrible!  I guess it just goes to show that no matter how hard you try, you can’t please everybody 100% of the time.  Some people just find things to complain about no matter what situation they’re in, so you shouldn’t let it get you down!!!

I got a complaint that it was difficult to find the ballroom of my reception because I didn’t post a picture of us outside.  Of course, there was only one ballroom in the hotel and out of 220 guests, only one guest had trouble and he showed up about an hour late.  Just goes to show that there will always be someone who is not happy.

Oh my.. You know, some people are so opinionated have nothing better to do but complain about everything.  Sorry that this is happening to you.  As long as you were happy with the way it turned out, then who cares what those people think (even if it is your family or closest friends).  The day is overwith, you can’t go back and change anything, and the day was about you and your husband.. Not about impressing other people with an over the top party.  Just tell those people how you feel and try not to let it bother you.  There is always someone who isn’t satisfied.  Oh well.  That’s life.  I’m sure that your wedding was beautiful!
