Could you put it on for a little bit at the reception (like this person has on) and let a few pics be taken and then remove it?

No. No way I would wear that. I don’t care if the Queen of Sheba asked me to. That thing is.. yeah, its something. They can photoshop you in it later. Especially since you are buying for the wedding, your choice!

Tell your husband that HE can wear it if it is so important to his grandmother.  Somebody  had to father all those piglets, er, I mean kids, right?  No way in Hell would I wear that and I would have flipped if someone had tried to make one of my girls wear it at their wedding.

Please don’t wear that. If it’s so important to Fiance , then he can wear it.

Isn’t something that big going to damage your dress? Didn’t you already have your accessories planned and they are super important family heirlooms that you promised you would wear? <— things to tell his family. 

As for what to say to him, “Are you kidding me? We need to talk.”

LOL…I apologize for laughing but that piggie thing is ridiculous. Hell no I wouldnt wear it. But, apart from its ugliness, I would not wear it because of the symbolism. Your Fiance just has to get over it.

I would never wear that thing. EVER. He is being unreasonable. But I did find a small pig necklace, that you could easily hide. Here is your compromise! Hahahaha.

Oh I just had another thought! Could you maybe hang it off the back of your chair at the reception, like facing away from everyone else lol. But that way you’re still including it in your big day?

I guess I would try and figure out if it really, really, really, matters to him that you wear it. My family is Roma and I had to do all kinds of rituals and wear “uncommon” things at my wedding. One ritual is a ceremony where I had to sit on a bread bowl that was coverded in a sheep skin, while all of the females in my family danced around me singing a song that basically translates into “HAVE LOTS OF BOYS!” Trditionally after that they would have shaved my head (but I kept my hair.) I did it because if I had not many Roma people whould not have considered me married. Do you think you could wear it for a little bit as an homage to your FI’s Grandmother? You might not agree with the traditions or the sentiment behind the necklace but you could still wear it to show respect to the culture. I am by no means saying you SHOULD do anything.

I also like the suggestions I have read to have pigs at the wedding. Maybe you cold have some at a few tables?

Oh hell to the no. I’m a people-pleaser (ugh) so at the beginning I was thinking “just wear it, whatever”, then after the description…”umm maybe incorporate it another way?” then after the picture “NOPE!”. Wtf, grandma??

Maybe throw it on at the reception and take a picture with grandma if you want to. But in general I say no, don’t wear it. I mean, if you were on here INSISTING your groom wear something he didn’t want to (especially something that hideous) I would tell you to back off, so I’m telling your Fiance to back off!

ragebee:  Ugh. I wouldn’t wear that on my wedding day either(I might wear it some other time. I like farm animals. I’d wear it to the county fair,  not my wedding, lol).

Can you meet him half way and incorporate it some other way? Maybe add it to the center piece at your table? Are you carrying a bouquet? Could it be incorporated into that? Maybe hang it on the wall behind you?

Your Fiance has to understand why you wouldn’t want to wear that thing.
