I have a few, mostly from MY family not FI’s.
“Why is it all the way in Detroit? Thats too far” From family members who live a 35 minute drive away. Our other guests are traveling over 500 miles to be there.
“Why are you getting married in November? Weddings are supposed to be in the Spring.” Umm thats when we want to get married. It rarely ever snows that early, and if it does, most of our guests are from NYC or the midwest so they can handle a little snow.
“Why cant my baby come. I dont want to seperate my family” umm you can get a sitter for a few hours, and if not im sorry you cant be there.
“Why cant i bring my grandkids. They are your family” We dont want kids there! Plus she has 7 grandchildren none of whom I am close to. I guess im not supposed to invite some of my other Aunts and Uncles so i can invite them. smh
And though she has not said it directly to me, I hear my stepmother has a huge problem with both my parents walking me down the aisle. I dont know why.

“the sleeves make you look bigger and all I see are them, i am gonna have to see this dress in person, I dont love it”
“I am wearing ivory and lace dress to the wedding too since your’s is white, its a diff.color”Now that mine is lace and white and ” I will be wearing blue and satin and one shoulder dress” just like Maid/Matron of Honor pretty much when I had my satin mermaid dress HELL NO!!!
“you cant have satin napkins bc your dress is lace, it’ll look tacky” Ummmm I can have cotton,satin, paper whatever I want. Plus my dress has a satin slip under :p

first off she said I will have to plan everything myself because she planned Future Sister-In-Law wedding all by herself.
My invites are going to be pink she suggested getting shamrocks on them because her family is irish.
She suggested fruitcake as favors I said no I am doing a candy bar she replies it tradition.
I am not doing a bouquet or garter toss she replies you have to again its tradition.
I am not having ushers well who is going to seat your mother, I am sure she can seat herself.
Why don’t you change your colors to purple and yellow well you already order purple for your dress so no I will stick with my first choice.
I THOUGHT YOU WEREN’T HELPING ME

One of my best friends said to me “You’re the keenest bride i ever met” – id made such an effort not to talk about the wedding in front of her as I knew she wasnt really that interested and when she said that she made me feel like I was a total Bridezilla.

“weddings are NOT about the bride and groom…they are about the families” -my mother dearest
“you have to invite so and so- there’s no way they will come anyways” guess who’s coming?

“Can I come”
I am having a destination wedding and when I tell people..just random people… they ask “can I come” as if I am buying all my guests their ticket to Jamaica. Buddy , if you need a vacation just buy yourself a vacation!

My favorite so far:
Future Mother-In-Law: “I think I’ve done a pretty good job of keeping my mouth shut so far”
Gee, thanks. What exactly is that supposed to mean? She also commented that we had better make the wedding long enough to be “worth their while” since she has a bunch of family supposedly coming from out of state. And regarding our no kids policy “well that’s different.” Umm no, no it’s not. Your BFF’s daughter had the same policy last summer!

If your FBIL’s gf and my Future Sister-In-Law ever get together I fear for the world

Future Sister-In-Law (to my FI)- You are spending *that* much on your wedding? What a waste of money! I’m sure she is the one convincing you to spend all this money!
She later got engaged and is spending more than double what we are! What a hypocrite!
