I kinda agree about gender reveal parties. They can sometimes be cute and creative, but why not just do it at the baby shower?

Completely over the top bridal showers – one of my friends sent pics of hers, and I honestly thought it was her wedding – she had a long white dress and some flowers, he had a smart suit & flower in the buttonhole, they had a huge cake, loads of decorations all around the room, a table laden with presents and cards… My wedding wasn’t that fancy!

Also, any single-use items that can’t be repurposed.  I try not to be too eco-warrior, but I do cringe slightly at the amount of stuff we feel is necessary for birthdays, weddings, engagements etc that just ends up being thrown after one day.

My unpopular opinion is that “brutal honesty” is almost never necessary and is usually just an excuse to be mean. I used to have a teacher who would say, “Don’t give anyone your “brutal” honesty. Give them your creative honesty, your compassionate honesty, or your empowering honesty.” That’s always stuck with me! There’s no need to be “brutal” in order to be honest. But SO many people seem to think that being “brutally honest” is a personality trait! It seems like everywhere I go, I meet someone who likes to say mean things for no reason and then defend it by saying, “I’m just being brutally honest.”

It drives me up the wall!

Unpopular (on WB?) opinion #1: IDGAF if you get legally married before your big wedding and share that info with no one.

Unpopular opinion #2: I hate sweet potatoes

@emilyofnewmoon:  I 100% agree with opinion 1. I used to agree with opinion 2, but I recently tried sweet potato fries for the first time and now I like them better than regular fries!

@bluejellyfish:  Lol…I don’t really care for sweet potato fries, but they don’t disgust me the way a regular mushy nastazoid sweet potato in its pure form does!

@DogsAndWine:  Agree with you on the yoga! I want to be the type of person who loves yoga but every time I’ve tried it I just hate it. I do not like being told how to breathe lol

@emilyofnewmoon:  Agree with #1. Plenty of couples in european countries get legally married at the court before having a wedding ceremony or church wedding. Sometimes they happen on the same day, sometimes there’s days or months between the legal wedding and the ceremony. Never been a problem in the circles I run in and I don’t see what’s so bad about it.

The world is complex and I loathe people who think they can sort issues in a black and white way. Really you actually think your idea / opinion hasn’t been thought of before, if only the world were that simple, that type of thinking drives me mad.  I second the sweet potato fries, awful.

@nolongersure32:  See, this doesn’t make sense to me. I know people do it, especially in the time of COVID, but to me, a “wedding” is when you wed. Celebrating a marriage that happened months ago is like celebrating a birthday from months ago. This is why my fiancé delayed our whole event by a year, or else we’d just be partying on some random date when it’s the actual wedding date that’s significant. But I know that’s just me; dates are really important to me in general.

I agree, sex reveal parties are stupid. Especially when someone is clearly disappointed. It’s not funny that dad’s whining “noooooo” when it’s a girl. It’s childish and dumb, if you knew you had a 50% chance that it wouldn’t turn out how you wanted, why do it in front of people? 

I hate fondant cakes. I don’t find them pretty, and I don’t want to have to peel my slice of cake to make it edible.

Constantly saying “I need wine” or “my kids are the reason I drink” as if children are this ridiculous burden and alcoholism is funny. I get it – my kids drive me absolutely nuts some days too! But if your kids are assholes more often than not it’s likely your own fault and if you need to drink to cope with life then you need to see a doctor.
