I got some rude comments about having a courthouse wedding. Oh well.

Wow, what a gem! 

When I told people about my Destination Wedding plans to Atlantic City, granted about 80% of them said “ooooh, that sounds fun!” but there were some people who said “well, don’t you want a real wedding?”

Guess what?  My wedding is still real.  We will still be married.  We will have a fabulous time with our closest friends and family. 

Gotta love it!

This is off topic but OP: your wedding photos are among the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen!

LOL I shudder when people preface a question with, “Can I ask you a question?”…. It’s almost the same as, “with all due respect”….. almost always followed by an insulting comment.

Congrats on finishing grad school soon! 🙂

I hate when people scrunch up their face and say, “Why are you getting married THERE?”  Umm, because I WANT to.

I got some crap for being “spoiled” because my parents paid for my wedding, because we are young and because we decided to go on a big honeymoon instead of having a fancy reception.

When I was planning I felt frustrated by decor and made a comment on FB about how I was just going to have candles on mirrors or no centerpieces at all.  I got an e-mail shortly thereafter telling me that candles as centerpieces are absolute white trash, that I may as well have plastic tablecloths and chairs at that point, and that she would rather see no centerpieces than that crap.  Okay then….

I’m Vegan and got a lot of…”so is there going to be any REAL food at your wedding?” – I’m sorry I didn’t realize I eat FAKE food all the time.

How much did he pay for the ring? – really, people, really? Asking how much anything is (unless its rent or something and from a friend considering moving to our apartment complex….) I find very rude.

At university I had to sit next to these students who would reach down and grab my phone or computer if it were out on the desk and look at the time. Um.. sorry, no touchy. 

The same student phone-grabber dragged ALL my scarves across the dirty floor in an attempt to move to set up for her final performance (they were props on a chair and when they fell she didn’t bother to pick them up but dragged them all across the room). This same student messed up my set-up in another class after I had purposefully counted out the number of seats I’d need and gotten there an hour early to make sure I could set up my project. I hate her. 

I also have many horror stories of living in the dorms when I was on campus. College kids can be so rude.

@MrsElopement:  I say this as a graduate student myself, but: graduate students suck.

That girl had no actual interest in what your wedding cost or didn’t cost–she was making the point of saying, in effect, that you were frivolous and shallow for having a wedding, and surely not the morally-uplifting intellectual that all those good tuition-paying brainiacs are. It’s the equivalent of someone saying, “Wow. I saw your sweater at JCrew too! Totally would have bought it if it wasn’t for that Heidegger tome I could only get off Amazon because it went out of print in 1983. Man, it SUCKS having to brush up on my German. But yeah, that totally looks cute on you.”

…Or am I just bitter? 😉
