She is 12. The parents didn’t say a word. Later, she was running through the crowded restaurant and I looked at my Fiance and said, “And that is the reason there will be an ADULTS ONLY reception”.

I really feel bad for my Fiance because he feels that these kids will most likely never get to experience a wedding like ours again and he really wants them there for both the wedding/reception. I gave in on the wedding, but I will not on the reception. They do not have guidance from their parents and they are literally little monsters. The part he doesn’t get is this…..

Once they pull their usual crap, it can’t be undone. We could ask them to leave, but it won’t fix whatever they have decided to break and it will be too late. Plus, I don’t want to have major anxiety trying to keep an eye on them since their parents won’t do their job.

Sorry for venting and taking over the thread.

My god!  That’s absolutely ridiculous!  Parents like that need to be smacked upside the head: hard.  Really hard.  The only thing I’m being “bridezilla” about is refusing to engage in certain trends that I personally find obnoxious.  I won’t get in to detail, as I don’t want to start any controversy.

My bridezilla moment was with the guest list! I was so annoyed by my family continually sending out new invitations. My brother would verbally invite his friends without permission – i don’t think he realized that they had to get an invitation and i had to know about it. And my mom was sending out the invitations for me so i still have no clue how many more people she invited without me knowing! There was a good month that i was so upset about all this.. but then i had to just let it go because there was nothing i could do about it. Especially since my parents were paying for everything. My initial concerns were that is would be too crowded, especially if it rained and we had to be inside for everything… but everything ended up being fine and the weather was great. I was also very particular about no one changing the seating chart i had made!! I worked hard to make sure everyone was sitting with groups of people they knew so i had to put my foot down on people trying to change it.

I’ve been pretty good so far about many of the aspects of our wedding. I had no problem finding the venue, the photographer or the DJ. Hit a little bit of a hiccup with the caterer and bakers. And made a few costly mistakes with our decor. All of which rolled off my back with ease. But I am always put in a foul mood when my fiance’ talks about inviting the teenage children of his Best Man. I DO NOT LIKE THEM! They are brats who steal, smoke and drink when no one is looking. I have reminded my fiance’ that it is an adult only affair but he seems to think teenagers, or at least his bestman’s kids, count as adults. And granted, they act like adults with their vices and manner of dress, but the last thing I want to deal with on my wedding day is teenagers during an affair with free flowing booze. Incidentally, our venue is only 10 minutes from where the Best Man lives so I can totally see his kids inviting their friends to a “party with booze.” NO FREAKING WAY!!! My wedding will NOT be a teeny-bopper soiree’.

My blood boils everytime I think about it….but it feels good to let it out.  Whew!

@baldor1: OMG, I feel for you. I didn’t mention my FI’s older cousins that would probably pull the exact same thing you are talking about. I think you seriously have to put your foot down on that one. I wouldn’t stand for those heathens either.

Since there will be alcohol, can’t you mention to your Fiance that no one under 21 is allowed? There comes great responsibility if they do sneak alcohol at your venue and then get into trouble with the law.  Maybe that will make him rethink it.

We’re still far enough out that we haven’t hit the crunch that seems to create Bridezillas, so I’m in the clear so far, but I’m with you on photographers. Mine suggested that his SISTER take the pictures because she makes photo slideshows for family events sometimes. I had to put my foot down; I want a professional!

I’m being kind of bridezillay about the guy’s wedding attire.  I have a very specific image in my head (my girls are wearing 3 different shades of blue, and their husbands are 3 of the gm.  I want the guys to wear white shirts with blue ties matching their wives’ dresses.  Gray suits.  I’m going to have my two bridesmen wear different color blue ties from the Groomsmen and gray vests.  Fi is going to wear a blue shirt with a white tie.  My sash on my dress will match his shirt).

Fiance does not like this AT ALL.  He wants to pick out his own clothes for the guys.  I’m terrified of what they’ll end up in.  I told them that they can change after the ceremony into whatever they want, but I just want nice ceremony pictures.

I hate the word “bridezilla.”

But what I’m really particular about is the photography, my hair and makeup, the music and the food.
