Umm except for that last example it’s just stress getting to you. Take a wedding planning day off and do something for yourself. That always helps me.

Agreed. The last one was weird but the first ones just sound like people being friendly and making funny jokes.

Great…now I am imagining strippy cup at my wedding, and I can’t stop laughing. Naked fire jumping is for rugby parties, not weddings.

Completely understand your “taking it easy” before the wedding- I think it is a little stress on the first two examples. The last one… a guy said that, right?

Is your running group an H3?


And people say stupid things. Try not to stress over it 🙂

I’ve been the same way lately and I have months to go.  I just feel so overwhelmed with things right now, too busy, and still trying to get time to plan for the wedding.  It’s been crazy!  The other day one of the guys (a co-worker) popped his head in my office and started to joke around with me like always, and I snapped at him, “Don’t even start that crap with me right now!”  I’m sure he thinks I’m a total bitch right now.  This morning he said, “Good morning, Stuck-Up.”  I had to cajole him out of being pissed off at me.  ARGH!  So, I feel ya!!

if your normally the one that makes jokes or finds these things funny, it doesn’t surprise me that they would make these jokes now – people tend to not understand context. So if you may be the person who would put something silly on their head at a party, but OF COURSE wouldn’t dream of doing that at your wedding you can understand why someone might not understand why you are suddenly being so “sensitive” (mind you I don’t think your being sensitive – but it is how it can come across to others).

My advice take a breath and just let it go – not easy trust me I know!!! But it will make you crazy obsessing over the stupid things people say. Some people need to be reminded (if you think they might be the ones to place something silly on their head at your wedding, or get drunk and pass out on the way it (or worse try to get your Fiance that way)) that your wedding isn’t a party. Please do so very gently and calmly that you are celebrating your marriage which is traditional and will be in front of my families who are traditional.

Blaming it on parents (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc) that it will not be a “party” but a traditional ceremony won’t stop the jokes but it may stop any ridiculous behavior.

@PinkFlemingo:  The third one is really dumb, the second was insensitive, but I truly don’t understand being upset by the first one. WAY overreacting, IMO.

@mightywombat:  This.

The first person was being funny.  They’re probably used to you being a fun-loving, jokey person.
