Lavender28: Yes, they were hungry and irritated. There was so much confusion about who was getting fed and who wasn’t, it seemed like it kept changing. Some friends were told they weren’t going to get fed but did get food after all, and others thought they were going to get food, but didn’t. It was a sh*tshow.
topeonyornottopeony: I know, right? I definitely learned a lot about what NOT to do at a wedding/reception when I start planning (after SO proposes later this year).

I no longer care about the food. I want to know what the bride and the guy were doing for an hour!

SLOBee: maid of honor not bride. And I think it’s pretty clear what they were doing.

Oh man…what a crap show for sure…
I can’t remember all the pages I read, but yea, get married at 1:30, have cake/punch after for everyone. Then that evening…have the reception for those invited to eat/dance. Simple

I’m going to have to try and remember to link this post for those threads where folks are looking for justifications for heinous behavior and then end up ignoring 95% of posters who are telling them that their idea is terrifically rude while saying “my friends and family are all totally fine with this so there.” The hard truth is that we often cannot trust our friends and family to tell us when we’re being rude–they would often rather lie to us or simply dodge the issue rather than tell us we’re being horrible.

raspberrybidet: Yikes! Thanks for the update! I’m glad that at least you got some food. I was raised Catholic and I’ve never been to a two-hour mass, much less wedding ceremony, that sounds brutal!
