@beeloved: I sincerely hope no-one “speaks now”! If they did, it probably wouldn’t end well for them. I have been taming down my “bridezilla” antics but you best believe I will probably be a raging lunatic if this were to happen during our ceremony.

We aren’t having it in our ceremony either. We don’t think anyone but us should have any say in whether or not we get married. We do have a couple of potential guests that might, if they had the opportunity, object. We are hoping they decline the invitation….

I just watched the episode of Everybody Loves Raymond where Robert and Amy get married and his mom does this. So funny ๐Ÿ™‚

@beeloved: I’d flipped the eff out. I would probably tell the person to STFU and sit down. lol

So glad I am writing my  own ceremony.

Well, I think it would depend on the person, and why they were saying it. 

For example, if someone in FI’s family spoke up and was like “we don’t like her, don’t do it” i would smack a b**ch

But if, you know…. Johnny Depp showed up or something…. and was like “I love you, come with me”…. well, I think that might be a tough one to be mad about!

Oh my gosh, they wouldn’t have had to worry so much about me, but rather my mom! I think I’d want to punch someone in the face.

I. Would. Flip. A few hours later there would probably be a youtube video of me, decked out in wedding gear, kicking some ass. Then I’d be in jail.

So. Hope it doesn’t happen. ๐Ÿ™‚ Honestly, we’ve got very little family/friend conflict/naysayers, so I can’t think of a single person who would say something.

i think we had some form of this said during our ceremony, my pastor joked around during the rehearsal that it didn’t matter cuz he wasn’t going to give anyone enough time to say anything. ๐Ÿ˜› LOL and no- no one did.

so my Future Mother-In-Law got married a few weeks ago and the judge DID ask her at her wedding. It was so funny too because as soon as he did she (FMIL) turned around and pointed at someone and was like “Not a word you! I’ve waited long enough!” lol. She was totally kidding and it got a huge laugh ๐Ÿ™‚

I actually had someone do this–at my first wedding.  It was an old boyfriend, one of those great loves who is on again/off again, but who makes a HUGE impression on you.  He burst through the doors right at that moment, saying “Wait!”

It was all very dramatic, and I am 100% sure he planned it this way.

He made this big impassioned speech about how he loved me, and how I couldn’t walk away from him because we were meant to be together, how we had made each other and there was no one else.  How the man I was marrying wasn’t good enough for me, and that it was the biggest mistake of my life.

I’m totally serious.

At the time I was livid.  All that happened was that we took a break to discuss his concerns with the pastor in the back and then the ex left and the wedding went on like normal.

(Of course, the ex was right.  The man I married that day was very abusive, physically and emotionally, and it started before the wedding.  I wanted SO BAD to run out the door with him, but all I could think of was how much money my Mother had already spent, and how devestated they would be if they knew.  So I did nothing.)

@Quietserenity: Wow, I can’t imagine!!! I’m glad you found the strength to get yourself out of that relationship!
