HAHAHAHAHA!  “Are you excited?”… yes you idiot, were you excited when you got married!  Gahhhhh I could really scream every time people say this.

 

Also “How is the planning going? Are you stressed yet?”  The planning is going fine and no I am not stressed, I throw events for hundreds and hundreds of people every year, its part of my job.  My 150 person wedding is seriously easy and fun.

OMG im am in love with this post!

“Its your day”  I dont know why but I take that as “…its your day…bridzilla.”  Anytime I make a decision i get that.  Just because I didnt take your suggestion and run with it doesnt make me bridezilla.  Seiously?

I also hate the “What are you colours? What’s your theme?” questions. I don’t have “colours” and I don’t have a “theme”. The theme is “We’re getting married, how about you show up and stop annoying me with your questions”.

@JessicaL: What is with people asking how much things cost?! Or telling you how 15 years ago their DJ was only $250 so clearly we should get that price for ours too. It makes me flipping nuts!!!! How about it’s none of your business, it’s my budget and my money and if I want to spend as little or as much as I want, it has nothing to do with you.

“can I request the duck dance/ymca……”Um no Father-In-Law as DH and I told you over and over again, we are not playing group dances at our wedding. PS we did NOT appreciate you asking me during the reception…I believe I looked at him in disgust and said NO again!

“If you need help with anything Let me know”

 

I hate that!!?!? YES I need help no I am not going to ask. I know this might sound bad to the bees but when its coming from people you RARELY talk to you know they intention is to get an invitation. Also, they just say that to be nice if you really wanna help say do you have ”    ” ok if not ill get it for you!

bakerellaFirst off, you’re getting married on my birthday and I love it! So here are my thoughts as someone who has dealt with having a special day on that day: I refuse to give up my birthday because I just think it’s losing one day every year to those who attacked the US therefor letting them have some super minor victory. I think it’s a perfect day to reflect, love, smile, and enjoy oneself because there are many who will never do it again, so I must do it for them. People check my ID and give me all kinds of awful comments, but I was born 22 years before and it will always be my birthday.

For the actual question:

1. “Why are you getting married there? You’re supposed to get married in the Bride’s hometown.” – McGroom picked it because it’s special to us. As for travel, his family has to come from NJ, FL, and Europe, so stop complaining about a 2.5 hour drive!

2. “Are you inviting this person?” – Listen, I know you hate ______, but I have nothing to do with that, so shut your mouth and if you punch anyone at our wedding, you’re out of my life forever.

3. “You’re not getting married in a church?” – No, we’re not. Big deal. We also had Moose out of wedlock, but you refuse to remember we ever had a baby because Moose is gone, so why don’t you just shut your mouth.

4. “Everything is so expensive.” – Well, married couple, you haven’t even RSVP’d (due on July 1st), so be quiet. We’ve set up cabins for our friends and we’re trying to make the OPTIONAl activities less expensive, so even though you go with this person for free normally, we’re trying to help everyone save money for everyone. We’re even paying, so RSVP and shut up!

5. “Yeah, we told you we’re staying in the cabins and we know it’s past the date you can change them, but we’re not staying there anymore.” – I knew getting cabins so our friends wouldn’t have to walk was too much to ask from you. P.S. If you come party at the cabins in the days leading to the wedding and crash there, you’re paying.

6. “Why aren’t you invinting your Uncle?” – First, he butted in and told my aunt and grandfather I was pregnant even though I had a cute way of telling them. Second, he never called me after Moose died. Third, his girlfriend is sending my friend emails telling him what a horrible person is and convincing my Grandmother I’m lying, so I don’t think he warrants an invite.

@TowerofTerror: HAHAHAHA…you have me rolling.  We’re not doing music (it’ll be whatever the restraunt is playing) because it would probably be euro syphonic metal or darkwave.  75% of the guests don’t mind, the 25% of family not so much.

My favorite has been so far “what is the dress code?” Um, clothes please.

1. “Why winter? I hate winter!” Funny how nobody ever asks this about summer weddings. Or spring. Or fall…

This question is usually followed by “How will we stay warm?” because obviously no buildings in New England have heat or anything.

2. “Will there be alcohol?” Why, would you RSVP “no” if I said there won’t be? (Um, yes, there will be alcohol. Brunch does not equal dry).

3. “Why brunch? Will there be music for dancing? What are you serving? How early in the morning will I have to get up?” …blank stare…

As others have mentioned, any kind of it’s-YOUR-day comments or questions about our theme really bug me. How about, come to the wedding and find out?!

Okay, okay… some of these things annoy me too.

But I’m very grateful for all the friends and family (yes, even co-workers 🙂 that are super interested and involved in our wedding.  It’s consuming my brain most of the time, so I don’t mind talking about it.

Seing this list, I’m also realizing how many dumb questions I’ve asked brides before I was one, just trying to make chit chat at work or in a social situation.

This was a good one from an out of town guest: What hotel should I stay at? (Um, maybe one listed on our wedding website?) And once we get there, how will we get around? (Well, maybe I can pick you up in my wedding gown and drive you to the ceremony. Or you could rent a car?)

“Are you going to be a bridezilla?”  NO I am not going to be a bridezilla!  I am being super laid back with my wedding, probably more laid back then I’ve ever been about anything in my life!  Do I ask you if you are going to be an asshole when you tell me you are going to do something?  Jeebus.

“Oh my god it’s going to be sooo hot”   Umm, do you sit inside 24/7 in the summer? I’m pretty sure you won’t melt get over it.

@BostonBaby: I’d probably not ask if there’s going to be alcohol, but I would assume brunch = no alcohol. Sorry. 🙂

I hate the “when are you having kids” type question too. Seriously, you spent our whole lives telling us to wait to have kids, practice safe sex, etc.  Now that we’re getting married in a month, it seems like we’re supposed to be delivering the week after the wedding after listening to family members.
