so my family is not completely insane????
Mother: Aren’t you worried someone’s going to stab you for the ring? (um no)
sister: Am I in the bridal party?(i hadn’t asked anyone yet)
Future Sister-In-Law: you need a good honeymoon since it’ll be the last time you get to go away alone (she thinks we’re having kids….we are childless by choice *sigh*)
Future Sister-In-Law: called and yelled at Fiance that we haven’t asked for her kids to be in the wedding
Mother: offered me my grandmother’s engagment ring for my wedding band. in private “Well you can’t have it, you can only use it for the ceremony and you have to give it back” (keep in mind this ring needs a lot of work since it’s falling apart…basically she wants it fixed for free)
Mother: you can sell your old dress (she went nuts 7 years ago and made me get one) for $500 (it cost $80) and give me the money for your engagement party
Sister: (post on facebook in reply to pic of ring) That’s huge! *insert random friend’s name here* and I were talking about it and were wondering if it gets caught on things. two days later she sees it and says with disdain dripping in her voice “It’s not THAT big”

we all should make a book and sell it to brides to give to their families – Things NOT to say to the bride and groom!

“:::::Sigh::::: Well, it’s your wedding….::::sigh:::::”

@miss_blondie86: The best (worst) I got was from a friend trying to make a joke at just the wrong moment:
“Doesn’t that dress show a little too much boob for it to matter what shade of white it is? I mean who are we kidding with virginal white?!”
[email protected]$%#%$! In front of my religious Future Mother-In-Law….

Oh I win.. My Future Mother-In-Law has tried to change every single detail..
Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are blue, they need to be red..
flowers are white, they need to be burgendy,
my dress is ivory, it should be white (you don’t want people to think you’re a tramp)
Oh, you’re getting married there..oh.
Well then you HAVE to get married outside
Kate middleton didn’t let William turn around, Kate Middleton wore a veil,

AGH! I hate
when they say “well, it’s not MY wedding…” to show their disapproval for something. I KNOW IT’S NOT YOUR WEDDING!
My generally well meaning (but batshit crazy) Future Sister-In-Law used to say that all the time. I finally broke and after one particularly obvious (and dripping with disdain) usage I cheerily said back “YUP! That’s because it’s MY and FI’s wedding which is why we’re making the decisions!”….she got the message and switched to the slightly more kind “ah, when I get married I will….”

Hahahahahaha!!!! I’d hate to hear what she’d think of me and my champagne-colored dress!

Our wedding is taking place at an antique store called Salvage One. My mom fondly likes to say that the venue name makes it sound like a junk yard.

My mom- “I think that is way too many people at the head table” (we’re having our bridal party and their dates”
Me- “well, if I went to a wedding and didn’t know anyone and had to sit by myself, I would feel awkward, so that is what we’re doing.
Mom- “well, I think that is too many people.”
Me- “I don’t think that”
Mom- “well I just want you to be open minded about it so that you’ll make the right choice.
Um…I am making the right choice, it’s my wedding. If I want people to hang from the ceiling when they eat their food, it will happen because that is what I envision and it’s my day!!!!!!!!! You had your day 35 years ago.

my uncle: I’m not sure if I can come to [state where the wedding is], I’m trying to boycott [the governor]
uhh.. really? i’m not a fan of the guy either but it’s not like he’s going to be a guest at the wedding! i know my uncle wouldn’t actually not come because of that, but still.

Here’s mine… it’s gone so well until now.
– I’m bringing so-and-so as my date to your wedding.
Oh really?? Funny, because your invitation says that one seat has been reserved for you. Perhaps people should wait for the invites before they state those kind of things. So annoying.

haha these are hilarious
Also ever notice how Future Mother-In-Law looks a lot like FML.
Maid/Matron of Honor: I’m in another wedding and bought a red bridesmaids dress. Can I wear it for your wedding? No? Can I wear pink? (Colors are red and green where the hell did pink come from?)
Mom: red shoes? that’ll make you look like a hooker.
Mom: You can’t have an outdoor winter wedding. It’ll be too cold. (It’s Los Angeles)
