“Excuse me, whose wedding is this?”

but I’m just a snappy, sarcastic person anyway 😛

EDIT: Sorry, I didn’t experience it because both my family and my ILs respected that DH and I were paying for the wedding so SHUSH.

I’m currently experiencing some of that as I am now starting wedding planning myself.  It puts doubts in my mind and makes me start questioning my decisions.  I’ve come to realize that those close to us will have the strongest opinions.  Just try to remember, it’s your day. Nothing else matters. Everyone will critize and have an opinion.  The choices you make should be on what makes you happy.  Just ignore everything else and stay strong. If you feel it’s right, than it is.  Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.

Well first I would let my fiance know how I felt and what they were saying. If after he talks to him and I’m still hearing critisim I would be pretty snarky and reply with “Well no offense, but it is OUR wedding. And we’re paying for it with OUR wedding.”

Or you could be less snarky and say something along the lines of “Well thanks for the advice/opinion but I really like it how it is because of XYZ.” And if you don’t feel like defending your decisions then just simply ignore it or reply with “Oh ok, thanks for your input.”

Don’t ask them for advice and just tell them that you want everything to be a surprise.

I haven’t experienced this from the ILs, but some people say it and generally I just respond that everything has already been decided. Most people know us well enough to know that in school I studied event planning and interned at a wedding venue, so it’s not a stretch at all to assume I have everything already planned!
