@Saria213:  +1. I’m so over chair covers, etc.

@MrsPaperFlowers:  +1. My wedding itself will be at the courthouse (gotta get on the fiance’s health insurance ASAP!) and the reception will be at either the beach or the botanical garden, depending on who’s got space available when we need it.

I was at a “Bridal Party DIY” meeting yesterday and we were helping Bride decide on decor. I just about screamed while vomiting when the other BMs kept pushing for mason jars and burlap. It was their answer to EVERYTHING.

@thwarted:  +2000 for chair covers AND sashes! Why do wedding chairs have to look like ghosts in tacky dresses??

@Nona99:  Our postal worker guy (who knows DH pretty well) started laughing when he pulled out the stamps we needed.

THEY WERE WEDDING CAKE STAMPS! I nearly jumped across the desk to hug him!

And my least favorite thing at a wedding is when someone says “SO unique!”

“Those candles are SO unique!”

“Those cupcakes are SO unique!”

“That burlap runner is SO unique!”

Because it NEVER IS! Ever!

I once went to a wedding where the groom designed the lighting, and surprised the bride with this crazy dico ball lighting gel thing. It was gorgeous. And the lady next to me said:

“Don’t you love the monogrammed napkins? They are SO unique!”

GRAWR!

@Nona99:  This one annoyed me on my dad’s behalf.  He is quite shy and hates speaking in public, so he was already nervous about giving a speech but really wanted to do one. EVERY TIME my dad told someone his daughter was getting married, they’d go “oh, how’s the speech coming along? Got it all written down? Are you nervous? Because it has to be funny! But not too funny! And don’t read from your notes! But you need notes. Wow, there’s gonna be HEAPS of people listening to you…right up the front…by yourself…speaking in public!”. Dad told me he was about ready to smack the next person who increased his nerves about the speech. Fortunately, he was brilliant and everyone complimented him afterwards.

@Overjoyed:  

I have this problem. An uncle rsvp’d to FI’s brother. Why on earth would he think that was the appropriate person to speak to i don’t know. And then there is my Mom’s friend who just had to be invited when others said ‘no they couldnt make it’ and she still hasn’t told me (or my mother)if she is coming,

Agreed with PPs on fancy chairs!

There’s nothing wrong with naked chairs; the chairs our venue would be supplying look like:

As a guest, I actually disliked sitting on chairs with satin chair covers. It was actually uncomfortable to have satin move around so much while you sit.

Last year, it had to be the Gangnam Style dance. Sure, it was fun to watch the bride & groom, but it was also easily the most overplayed and overshared song. 😀

However, I felt sorry for a girlfriend at her wedding when a pastor gave a really awkward wedding sermon/speech. Poor girl had to endure a 15 to 20 minute long traditional “You have to listen to and obey your man” followed by bible verses. She didn’t look impressed at all.
