crackktheskyy:  look I get it. It’s sunday, you have to work tomorrow and the music is loud…but you know what? I’d suck it up and let the good people enjoy their wedding. It’s a once in a lifetime experience for them and I would rather go to work tired tomorrow, knowing that these people celebrated an awesome night than be the curmudgeon that rains all over their parade. You’re not going to die from one night of trouble sleeping. If it’s 3am and their still being ridiculously loud, that’s one thing. But before midnight? Loosen up and let them enjoy their party.

I would call the cops. I agree that just because it is someone’s wedding doesn’t give them the authority to blast loud music while partying in the street on a Sunday night.

I think it’s reasonable to expect that there will be noisy situations when you live in close proximity to other people, like basically anything other than a completely rural setting. I’d give it till 10pm and if the noise levels don’t decrease by then, it would be reasonable to call the cops. This has nothing to do with the event being a wedding; it’s all about what is reasonable to expect, given the setting, and an apartment building next to a community center or school doesn’t have the same expectation of peace and quiet that you’d find when you share a few acres with one other neighbor, and 8pm on a Sunday isn’t an unreasonable time to make noise.

I completely agree with your latest post, OP. Weddings are not a magical time where any and all transgressions should be forgiven because a glorious pretty princess day is underway. In a situation where a wedding seriously infringes on the lives of people who are not involved with it, complaining is absolutely reasonable. They should not have made the selfish choices that would draw complaints from innocent bystanders just trying to go about their lives. I bet if it was that bride who posted about her plans here, most bees wouldn’t hesitate to set her straight on how rude it is to throw her loud party in the middle of a residential street on a Sunday night.

I fail to understand how there could be any situation that it is acceptable to annoy others and expect them to just deal with it. I get it’s a wedding, once in a lifetime, but that doesn’t give you a free pass to be an ass. 

I would say walk over and politely ask them to keep it down a bit, but I’m not sure how awkward that would be. I would say call the cops, but to be the couple for whom the cops got called…..oofta. Hard decision there, OP. 


I am very noise sensitive, and I find it very, very, very annoying for others to expect me to ‘just deal with it’ because they’re having fun. If I cannot work, if I cannot sleep, if I cannot function because you are placing your fun (because apparently loud music equates to fun), that is the utmost in rude. It is quite possible and reasonable to expect a decrease in noise pollution at a certain time and place. It is not a rave. It is a residential area. /endrant

Well it must be a free open bar if that many ppl r having that good a time. Go down there and tell all the guests that they have to start paying for drinks now and I bet they all leave.

crackktheskyy:  Even if they need permits– didn’t you mention the police were blocking the street?  That would suggest if permits were needed, they have obtained them.

I do think it’s kind of rude they would allow such loud music in a residential area outside- at night.  What about babies and kids that would be going to be at an early hour?  You’re inconveniencing an ENTIRE neigborhood (or at least a few blocks LOL)– for your wedding.  I think it’s quite selfish.

I sincerely doubt turning down their obscenely loud music would ruin their special day. If it does, they need to get over themselves.

crackktheskyy:  well the couple must be pretty special if they think it’s within their rights to annoy an entire neighborhood. Sounds like they’re pretty self absorbed. 

Hopefully for you they settle down around 10 otherwise I’d be ringing the popo!
