“When’s your date?”

“February 27th.”

“But that’s winter! What if it snows?”

“We like snow.”

“Well I hope you have an indoor venue!”

No, I thought I’d have my wedding outside and subject my arthritic mother and DH’s ailing grandmother and all our guests to freezing temperatures for the ceremony, and then we’d all go skating on the frozen pond instead of dancing for the reception.

Yes! Even though we have only been engaged since November, we had already made a lot of decisions before hand. We’d chosen colors, style of attire, ideal venue (and back up if that didn’t work out), and food. We had a favorite photographer and dj and also discussed back up options for those if they didn’t work out when the time came. So, when the official engagement came, I got right to it contacting everyone and setting it all in motion.

Now that we’re a little more than 9 months out my biggest concerns are the details. Yet, everyone keeps assuming I haven’t even started yet!

I am laughing with empathy at some of these images. Right up to the last minute some people will make suggestions.

“You should have ___, ____, ___ in your cake”( 2 days before the wedding!- the cake is baked thanks)

Have you thought of having a dress with_____ ( the day before!- if I did it’s a bit late for that!)

@Pinksapphire: *blank stare* Who on earth would wear a swimsuit and shorts to a wedding anyway?!?! Unless your cocktail hour was at a swim-up bar, lol.

@tksjewelry:  I love saying “I’d like to punch them in the throat”… so close. It made me laugh to see someone else thinks the same thing.

People will always have their opinion. I do a lot of eye rolling!!! Undecided sort of like this

I am having the same problem. No one gave two turds in the beginning but now all of a sudden everyone wants to put their two sense in. I get that people are trying to be helpful, but I feel like saying, “Information that could have been useful to me YESTERDAY!” 😛

I just smile and nod and do my own thing in the end.
