So I have been married to a wonderful man for about a month (YAY!) and I have been alot of friends getting married or have recently got married. Anyways, has anyone noticed people compare wedding alot? My Maid/Matron of Honor got married a few months before me and she had a lavish wedding. She compares her wedding to mine and has made comments about how everyone was drunk and had the best time ever (which is obviously her impression). I was wondering if anyone else went through this? Not everyone was drunk at my wedding… who cares!

Strange, I do think people have a tendency to compare weddings. If there’s anyting to compare, it shouldn’t be price tag, it should be styles. That’s the fun part, everyones individual styles. And I appreciate the details people put into their weddings. I do catch myself wondering how much some stuff costs but its not in a judgmental kinda way. I hate that!
PS. Um, being drunk isn’t an indication that her wedding was a blast! Lol. I’m sure your was just as nice AND- the guests were able to remember it 🙂

comparisons are inevitable and usually people just airing their insecurities…my friend made comments on items we’re splurging on because (i think) she’s sensitive about not splurging….i made comments to another friend about choices i made and inadvertently dissed her bro’s wedding choices that were opposite of mine. i was only saying it out of my own insecurity and felt awful for weeks (still do). chances are, your Maid/Matron of Honor might be self concious that people were too wasted or sloppy at her wedding or they splurged on an open bar and are trying to justify it in their heads. if she’s comparing, i’m willing to bed it’s because she wants to “prove” she made the right choices. i’d laugh it off and remember just how awesome, classy (b/c not drunken!) and full of love i bet your wedding was. and if your marriage is great, isn’t that what REALLY counts?
