another thread should be :  

things you dont say to the bride the day of the wedding

my brother (who offered to pay for the dj) came up to me at the reception saying the dj wanted to be payed and he could only pay for half…….i love you brother but seriously. this couldnt have been brought to my attention ..yesterday?!

or your “beautician” SIL goes….”oh im suppose to do the BMs hair….i cant….i have to help the guys get ready….” she was a BM!!! i was engaged for a year and we had talked about it the whole time.

Fair enough, the person who said this knows my DH is ill but it really wasn’t a help, the week before our wedding to say “He looks worse every time I see him. Will he be OK for the wedding?”

Well thanks a farkin’ bunch! Did it not occur to her that all manner of irrationally dark thoughts about his health and the wedding had crossed my mind and were, in fact, the stuff of my own nightmares?

Sure, people can think these things but for goodness sake don’t come out with them!

“please don’t put me at a table with people I don’t know”

Well, duh, I am not going to put you with a bunch of strangers, everyone will know someone at their table.

“Please put me and my date at the same table”

@Bainise2013:  Anything. Don’t say anything. Don’t speak to me. Don’t even look at me. (How I felt for a week before the wedding… I was so anxious and I cannot deal with people when I’m anxious.)

After I posted a pic of a brunch I was enjoying, I had someone comment, “How does your dress fit?”…really? Jerk. Take your crossfit and cram it.

Oh, OP, I’m 8 to 9 months away from the wedding, but am being asked: “Are you sure the venue is nice?” or “Will it be nice?” or “Is the food nice?”

… which was followed by, “If it’s not nice [wedding, food; etc], I won’t invite my friends and family. Then, you can just have your in-laws.”

My mother is fast turning my wedding into hers. She wants me change into several dresses. She wants it to be a fancy extravagant affair — keeping up with the Joneses; she hates it when I talk about budgets on wedding; she thinks I shouldn’t cheap out on a “special day” while I don’t want to have to take years to pay off an event that’s only “one day”. I’ll check back in when it comes to a week before the wedding.

I am now not a fan of the word “nice”. Santa might as well give me lumps of coal in my sock this year because I am exhausted from behaving “nicely”.
