Oh God lol so many ridiculous things have been said to me. 

“It’s not a wedding without a limousine.”

“It’s not a wedding if you have fake flowers – don’t worry about your allergies; you’re just being paranoid.”

“Just because you and your fiance are Catholic doesn’t mean you should have a Catholic wedding – no one wants to sit through that.” 

And don’t even get me started on the vegans.

brittnamrogo :  Wait, I wanna hear the end of this story! Did they come? Did the daughter wear a white prom dress? Did someone “accidentally” pour wine/salsa down it?

Asking if there’s an open bar before rsvp-ing. After the deadline of course.

Sunday weddings cause freak outs and stupid comments. If you don’t like it, don’t come. 

Small wedding with no alcohol? Tragedy. 🙄

manylovesbee1 :  I’m normally a verrrrryyyy chill person, but that was the straw that broke the camel’s back to my wedding stress. I kind of regret it in hindsight but I had a bridezilla moment and told them that the meal finalization had already been sent in (which was true – plus the seating plan sent to my decorator) and that they could come for drinks/ dessert after dinner… I  think they got the message that I wasn’t too impressed cause my cousin showed up in a knee length purple dress instead. Thank GOD.

Another one of my favourite comments (from both my Mother-In-Law and my step mom) : “Don’t order a custom made dress online. You’re going to regret it!”

Plot twist: What I actually regret is spending 2500$ on a stupid dress for one day that I didn’t even like that much to begin with.

  • Wedding: November 2018

Upon finding out that the best man is a gay man who is bringing his boyfriend, a very distant cousin of mine who I have not seen since I was 15 dmd me on Instagram as if he had made this discovery. Warning me that a homowas going to bring another homo and ruin my wedding, strongly suggesting we stop speaking to fi’s best friend, and asked that if we must invite them, please do not seat him next to the homos bc he didn’t know if he could keep his mouth shut. 

Well, he’s not going to have to worry about where they are sitting because he’s not gonna be there. 

If only he knew bm is also fi’s ex boyfriend. I’m marrying one of those dirty homos. I am one of those dirty homos.

From my ex-DH’s step-grandmother, “In the Catholic Church an outdoor wedding wouldn’t be allowed and you wouldn’t be really married.” Good thing neither of us was Catholic.   And that was Granddad’s 4th wife so whatever.

My aunt (mom’s sister) criticized the cakes and pastries saying she makes better ones, then ended up taking 4 Tupperware containers of ’em home. If they’re that bad whyd you clear the tables!

brittnamrogo :  I wouldn’t call that bridezilla at all! Sounds more like compromise to me. I would’ve suggested an anatomically impossible new hobby for the lot of them, so you were nicer than I 😀

When we told my future Mother-In-Law that we were planning on getting married at my parents house (desination wedding) and she responded….. “ okay,  let me ask my sisters and see what they think”

 

ummmmm we weren’t asking

When my parent’s asked what kind of wedding we were considering (size in particular), I told then we wanted to keep it on the smaller side, 50 guests max. Both their eyes got huge and they said, “Fifty guests is a SMALL wedding?”

Umm…generall, yes. It is.

I swear they acted as if anything more than a courthouse wedding with a bbq lunch for immediate family (which is what my brother and his wife did), was unreasonably extravagant.

manylovesbee1 :  I don’t know why weddings and babies bring out so many unsolicited opinions! lol Now granted, our wedding experience was nontraditional in just about every sense, but we had the time of our lives and so did everyone who was there with us that day, so why try to rain on our parade? Misery loves company, I guess.

Mine was more hurtful than ridiculous.

So I was always wanting to walk down the aisle by myself since I think being “given away” is outdated. Upon hearing this, my Dad begged me to let him walk me. He said it’s the only thing he’s ever wanted blah blah blah. I say fine. Brush it off. It’s 45 seconds, just make him happy. 

Many months later he and I are heavily arguing about something wedding unrelated and he has the audacity to say he no longer wishes to attend my wedding. Now, my father and I aren’t close since my parents’ divorce, but we have always had a great relationship. I could go to him for anything and I knew he’d be there. He was kind. But this hurt me so badly. I don’t care what the fight is about, no father should ever tell his only daughter that he doesn’t want to come to her wedding. It’s just cruel. 

He ended up apologizing halfheartedly, but I have not forgiven him. If he thinks he’s still walking me down the aisle, he’s lost his mind.

I had a Sunday wedding and my mom’s outspoken sister had a lot to say about that…

She and her husband are both retired btw, so it’s not like she had to take off work Monday or anything.

If it bugs you so much, don’t come then….?
