I agree, why are there so many ridicules “rules” about weddings.  It’s a day to celebrate you and your Fiance, and whatever you want to do, you should be able to do!  If people don’t like it, don’t go!

haha you get used to offending people when you are doing things differently! It starts to become funny…you will find a little tiny smile creeping in on the corners of your mouth everytime you say something like ‘I want to have a giant slingshot for a real life game of angry birds there’ and everyone in the room /jawdrops

I have learned through this whole wedding planning process is that I keep my wedding planning to myself. When people ask details about the event I just say that I am making it a special day for my Fiance and our kids. Sharing details is like a double edge sword, everyone is going to have an opinion whether you want it or not. So my way of thinking is ” IT’S MY DAY, SO IT’S MY WAY”………

Just know your not the only “non-traditional” bride- to- be out here. Wish you luck

My wedding was a hodge-podge of stuff Darling Husband and I like.  It was at a Victorian b&b at Christmas time.  He wore TARDIS cuff links.  I copied the wedding cake from “Father of the Bride”.  My grand entrance was to the theme song that was written for our favorite documentary.  The next song on the track was “Margaritaville,” which came on during our vows.  (not planned that way, we forgot to set the first one to repeat). It was ok, though, because it is “our song”.

We had the wedding we wanted, and didn’t care about tradition.

you are bound to offend people one way or another. trust me.  Everyone was okay with “simple” wedding as it’s less troubles.  As soon as the planning wagon started to roll, everyone suddenly has all kinds of expectation. 


You just need to be firm and calm, tell them thanks for the input but this is what you want 🙂  Or just tell them you will think about it.

Are you DIYing the slingshot or have you found somewhere to rent it from? Wink

@lamkky: I think you hit it on the head. I just wonder why people get so…offended.

I mean there are some things that you shouldn’t do at your wedding like make out with the best man or flash the wait staff but then there’s some things that I just don’t understand. The cash bar is one example, but I’m sure there are many more.

There are some things I don’t like to go along with but I do because it’s for my friends and/or family. I don’t sit around and complain about it later or judge them because of it. If it’s way outside my comfort level I don’t participate. I haven’t been cited by the wedding police for any breaches of etiquette personally, but I’ve been cited for tolerating it or NOT judging…what’s the deal?
