Everyone has reservatiions and concerns about their wedding and no one needs more stress and criticism from outside parties- friends or not. People are always going to be opinionated and they will 100% talk about your wedding before, during and after but if they are true friends they would criticize nothing and just enjoy the day as it is because that is the way you wanted it/planned it. Every time someone passed a comment about my wedding, all I reply with is “its MY wedding”. Sometimes some four letter words are added in there for sass, but whatever you’re doing is right so OWN it! Keep your head up and screw whomever is being a b*tch about it 🙂
PS- keep the per plate price on the DL. No one needs to know about your finances and its freaken RUDE as anything to ask someone that. I agree with some of the ladies- ditch these witches and get new friends 🙂

I have been faced with somewhat the opposite here. If I were to have it on a barn (which would make no sense because Im a city girl and Ive probably stepped foot in a barn once as a kid), then my friends would call it cool (not my family).
I would assume MOST of us are spending so much time and our hard earned money to plan our weddings. Its almost like our little child, and when we’re insulted, its super personal.
I will start to get snippy though. Thanks ladies for giving me some ways to add some zing into my combacks without sounding like a b*tch.

I would clam up too!! How disappointing, I’m sorry you’re going through this I would suggest not sharing anything with friends or other guests anymore.
As for the criticizing your wedding on the day, you’ll be too busy enjoying your day to hear their crap so just focus on you and your new husband!
One thing about my wedding which has stuck with me, was that my Future Sister-In-Law (who was my Bridesmaid or Best Man also) walked into my hotel room on my wedding day, saw my dress hanging up and said ‘Is that it? Really snarkilly!! It upset me a lot but she has a sister (also my BM) and they CONSTANTLY put each other down and bitch at eachother. Because I only had 2 brothers growing up I certainly wasn’t used to bitchiness!! I just put the comment down to her having that kind of relationship with other females.
There’s usually an underlying issue with the way people criticize other people and the problem is within themselves! None of this is your fault, just remember that:)

I’ve had someone almost tell me off because I suggested she may not be able to bring her partner(who i’ve never met) to my wedding. When i said she would be coming with a group of women she knows she just said ‘well that won’t work’. Thanks…if you don’t like the way i’m arranging things…don’t come!

You may not have heard this, but it actually is rude to not invite somebody to a wedding with their partner, whether you’ve met them or not (because they’re a social unit & social units can’t be split). If somebody considers another person their boyfriend or girlfriend (husband, wife, fiancé(e), etc) they need to be invited with them.
I realize that this may be somewhat ironic given the nature of the thread, but I just wanted to point that out so you don’t step on anybody’s toes. Good luck with your planning!

oh I know. All my guests have a plus one. But this woman invited herself. So asking for her partner to come was adding insult to injury!

This does wind me up though. I went to my BF’s wedding solo. Fiance wasn’t invited cos she couldn’t afford to invite everyone with a plus one…I didn’t find this rude!
