- Wedding: May 2015
What in the… what?
I didn’t read all of the responses but how DARE they say those things to your face? Are they really that freaking stupid and rude? They sound like pompous a-holes and I wouldn’t take their comments to heart. They’re probably the type of people who would’ve found anything to complain about. If it wasn’t the appetizers, it would’ve been something else. So do not let their obnoxious opinions tarnish your memories.
At my FSIL’s wedding my FI’s uncle proclaimed the food was the worst he’d ever tasted in his life (btw, the food was great IMO). And he said it AT THE WEDDING… the bride heard, the mother of the bride heard… the waitstaff heard. Fortunately, my Future Sister-In-Law is super laid back and just rolled her eyes at him because she knows he’s a stubborn old slovak. We went to the wedding of his son 2 weeks ago and we all (childishly, I admit) joked about telling him how awful the food is. I already expect he’ll make a similar proclamation at my wedding but… don’t care. He wants to act that way, go ahead. It ain’t my problem!
Seriously, do not let them get to you. I told my Fiance the other day, “What is it with people expecting world-class, grade A, 5-star dishes of the finest, most delectible food on the planet at every wedding?? I mean, you’re getting a free meal! And free booze! Why do people criticize wedding food more than they criticize restaurant food?” and his response was “because people are assholes?” lol. But it truly fascinates me!
We picked our venue without even tasting the food (although my parents had been to a wedding there and my aunt goes there often for other events… all say the food is fantastic). But, seriously, I picked the venue because I liked the look and feel of it. As long as they give me something edible to sustain me for the night, I could care less.
Next time (God forbid there is a next time) someone criticizes something about your wedding, just give them a big smile and say “Wow.. good thing it wasn’t your wedding! I had a great time and thought everything was perfect! Which is really all that counts right?”
