Yes, people are so silly.

We’re having an outdoor reception at a conservation area and I get alot of “but there will be bugs” or “aren’t you worried about bugs” …as if I never considered bugs. …and have never been outdoors. Oh, also…”it might be hot” …as if I didn’t realize the hotness when I booked my outdoor wedding in August. 

… anyone who knows me should realize I think bugs are awesome (even if floating in my drink), and I LOVE the heat +30 and humid makes me happiest!

@Sukiapple: I’d really love to see that cowgirl outfit!!! lol

Haha. I can’t wait for mine. 🙂 That is great “Will you be wearing a cowgirl outfit?” Yes. Yes I will. It’ll go really well with the bugs. *face palm*

You totally should have told that guest to come in costume! Ok, maybe that would be mean, but c’mon really?  People can be so daft.

We’re having a tiny wedding and I got: “I would like to invite your FI’s 2nd cousin.  And she would like to bring another 2nd cousin as her plus one.  Oh, and they would each like to invite their daughters because they think it sounds like it will be fun (even though I’ve never met them).  Oh, and they each have a boyfriend/husband.  And they’d like to be invited to the bridal shower (that I’m not in charge of or throwing).”

Hard sigh.

Ugh. I started getting these comments months ago! And I am SO over them. “If you don’t like it, go plan you own wedding!”

@kermie:@Sukiapple: 😉 I would totally do it. I’d probably even take it too far, haha, but I think I might just stick with it going with the bugs. People are dumb sometimes. haha.

Well I’m getting married in 2 DAYS!  I spent hours with my parents and Fiance trying to figure out the seating chart (it’s like a really complicated puzzle that frustrates the hell out of me).  About a week ago my Fiance tells me “Oh by the way, my mom wants [work friend] to sit at her table”.  Really??  Like a week before the wedding and after I spent hours putting everything together? Plus it’s the family table that’s closest to the head table.  I said “Ok, would she like kick her mom or brother off the table in order to have her work friend sit there?”

 

…Her brother is now at a different table.

@heatherxnicole: Haha. That’s horrible. Someone on here (I don’t remember who) said that the seating chart was like a bad logic puzzle with no solution. lol. That’s one logic puzzle I’m not looking forward to at all.

First of all, coral or pink you wedding will be fabulous don’t let that nit-picky lady get you down!  Second, I love the cowboys and bugs!  You really should have let them show up in cowboy hats, it would have served them right!  I can’t believe your mom moved her brother for her work friend, was it her boss?

So here is my rant…We had just returned to my grandma’s from selecting bridesmaids dresses. We were looking through the catalog when my grandmother turned to me and told me that the bridesmaids dresses were tacky and that I need to pick new ones.  She then proceeded to tell me what type of wedding gown I should select, including the fact that I should have something sparkly on the back so she would have something to look at while I was at the altar.  Well thanks a lot grandma!

@floridabride12: That is a perfect description for a seating chart.  And I was only assigning tables, not even SEATS!

 

@SpiceFairy: Nope, FI’s mom is the manager so she’s the boss.  She said her work friend wouldn’t know anyone even though she’s coming with her husband.  The seating chart is like a clique-y high school lunch room.  Can’t believe your grandma said those things!  Although the sparkle in the back so she had something to look at made me laugh!

@Sukiapple: We are having a really small wedding and I thought we’d just do open seating UNTIL this last weekend when we were at church and another couple friend of ours was like YOU HAVE TO DO ASSIGNED SEATING.  And we were like why?  And they were like omg, our biggest regret about our weddding is that we just had 2 “reserved for family only” tables for our families, thinking the groom’s family and the bride’s family would each have a table in the front, and of course when it came time to sit down, all of the bride’s cousins took up the other reserved table and the groom’s parents had to sit in the back!  So the Fiance and I talked about it and he agreed he definitely had distant cousins that would just sit right down at the “reserved” tables.  So we’re doing specifically arranged seating!
