Yesterday my Fiance and I met up with my sister, her husband, my mom and also my step-dad. Since we aren’t using a DJ my sister’s husband (a music production guy) is going to upload all the tunes we found yesterday and put them together for a nice soundtrack. Well it all went downhill when my sister started to bitch….
She had the nerve to ask me if her and the husband could bring their friend and his girlfriend so they aren’t bored. My mouth fell open. Excuse me? I said there will be family there and I doubt she’ll be bored. She moaned. She said, “But you could have brought someone to my wedding and you chose not too!” My mouth fell open even more! I explained to her that I was single at the time she got married and around that time the guy I was dating–we broke up two weeks before her wedding.
Maybe I should provide a case of beer for just her, ya know, so she can get through the evening and not be entirely bored! Oh hell, I’ll throw in a deck of cards too because I’m nice. JEEZ.

Really? Why would she be bored? Because of the music or because she doesn’t know anyone there?
If you put together a rocking soundtrack for your reception, you should still have a packed dance floor even without a DJ. Lots of bees do an ipod reception and had tons of fun.
I’m sorry, she sounds a little self centered.

wow…I’m really surprised that your sister would say that!!! She’ll obviously know a lot of the same people that you do, plus her husband will be with her. Maybe she was in a grumpy mood that day…But honestly, if she’s bored, that’s her problem. You’re her sister, she should be beaming for you the entire night and mingling with family!!!!

If you are bored, you’re boring!
I think what you have is perfect. She will know other people.

Even if she felt that way, it was really disrespectful for her to say that to you. She should be supporting you and your day no matter what.

I hope your sister was kidding.. My sister asks me absurd questions about the wedding all the time as a way to tease me. If she’s not kidding, she sounds like a child who needs an activity bag packed for her so she can entertain herself during the reception. Ask her if a coloring book and some crayons might help keep her from getting bored. lol 🙂

Wow, that’s pretty rude. Is she normally like that? It never ceases to amaze me, the things people say outloud.

That is really rude – it isn’t your sisters dinner party it is YOUR wedding! I can’t believe she said that and she’s already married!! She must dislike all the family who will be attending if she doesn’t even want to spend any time wtih them..

Wow thats really rude. I cant think of a reason she would be bored just because you’re not having a DJ

Oh no, it’s not because we aren’t having a DJ, it’s just in general. My sister will know plenty of people there, my entire side of the family for one. If that’s not enough people to talk to I don’t know what is. She gets along just fine with my side of the family—she’s just thinking of herself. At her wedding she didn’t socialize with anyone basically–she stayed on the dance floor with her husband and the wedding party and drank beer. I never once saw her say boo to anyone else. So I guess in her mind she thinks there will be nothing to do since it’s not about her. This is not uncommon for my sister, she loves to complain if she’s not the center of attention. Even my mom noticed how she barked at people the day of her own wedding.

So your sister can only have fun with certain people while doing certain things? She sounds like a boring gal to me… I’m so sorry that you have to deal with her, but she’s an adult and should be able to take care of herself. Her entertainment on your wedding day should not be your concern. And like the other bee said, if she’s bored at your wedding day, it’s not because your wedding is boring. It’s because SHE’s boring.

if there is one thing i learned during my whole wedding planning process is that people are generally self-centered, and its usually your closest friends and family that say the rudest things about your wedding.
tell her to put a sock in it ;o)
