1. Beyonce-she has a great voice, but people really idolize and worship her and I think that’s sort of weird.

2. Disney World-yuck, sounds like absolute hell on earth to me. Tons of kids, long lines, rides….nope to all of it.

3. Dancing/hardcore party type weddings-sorry, but as a person who doesn’t care to dance or drink I dread these type weddings. They’re not enjoyable to me as a guest. Just give me good food and a pretty setting and send me on my way in 2-3 hours.

4. Gossip girl-I watched a couple of episodes and wanted to bang my head against a wall. SO AWFUL. I kept thinking how much better the show would be if zombies came and ate everyone (I LOVE walking dead and sad it’s getting so much hate!)

5. Tie between seafood and mushrooms-I hate any and all seafood with a passion and I live on the gulf coast where EVERYONE eats it and I think it’s just awful. And I just wonder how anyone actually enjoys mushrooms!!

As a side note, I don’t get the obsession with pizza. It’s okay but unless it’s fancy pizza with white sauce or chicken I’d rather have something else.

6. Babies-I just don’t find them cute or interesting and I never understand why people get baby fever. I like children soooo much better when they’re semi independent and can talk.

New Orleans

Choregoraphed dance performances 

4. Tv show/Movie

5. Food

Frappuccinos or other coffee drinks with 10,000 added flavors and ingredients- I know ppl love them but it’s sooo sweet. I hate to see kids drinking them even though it’s none of my business!

  • Wedding: October 2017

1. Celebrity: the Kardashians

2. Place: Anything too rural- it’s fine to visit but I start to get itchy after spending too much time in the country. I love living in a big city with lots of ethnic food choices, art and culture opportunities, etc. 

3. Wedding-related: Having giant bridal parties (seriously, there’s no way you have 9+ close friends), elaborately staged sendoffs (or anything just for the photo op really) and hashtags. Seriously don’t understand why people go so crazy over finding the perfect hashtag for their wedding- maybe it’s just because my crowd isn’t that into social media. I do try to use the hashtags for other people’s weddings though. 

4. TV Show/Movie: the Bachelor/Bachelorette or any similar show that’s so heavily edited that you can’t even really call it “reality” anymore

5. Food: Licorice 

6. Random thing: I second a PP on gender reveal parties. Weird and (often) sexist. Part of the reason I’m planning to be on Team Green in the future is that I know my child will be aggressively gendered as soon as they’re out of the womb- so I’m going to protect them as much as I can while they’re still in it!

DanaWeddingGuest :  it may not be personal for you, but for others it is. You are entitled to your opinion, as I am mine. And I think that if somebody took the time to embed a memorial in their wedding, it’s probably pretty personal to them. You are entitled to your opinion, as I am to mine.

  • Wedding: December 2016

1. Celebrity (actor/actress, musician, model, etc)

Blake Shelton. I am a country music fan…but he is just gross. I’m team Miranda allll day lol. I was actually pissed when he was voted Sexiest Man Alive… 

2. Place

Whoever said “Arizona”…I died. I’m from Arizona and I agree! Also, Vegas. We live a couple hours from there and everyone thinks its so much fun. I literally hate the way being in Vegas feels on my skin. I can’t wait to get home and take a shower. 

3. Any wedding related stuff

People who spend the GDP of a small country on one freaking day. 

4. Tv show/Movie

Game of Thrones. I can’t handle it. Darling Husband and all his friends pretty much schedule their lives around it and I just am grossed out. 

5. Food

Fucking Keto. You’re off carbs. Good job. Now go away. 

6. Name one thing random 

MLMs. I live in the land of stay at home mom MLMs and they make me insane. How do people think that is ever a good idea?!?

PrincessPeach13 :  She is entitled to her opinion, but I am also allowed to have mine- even if it is to disagree. “Just for fun” doesn’t mean I can’t politely respond.

  • Wedding: NJ

Calijcab23 :  Of course you are. Here is my reason: I have had my parents die, and some people acted like it was a lot of hooey over nothing. So I kept the feelings quiet. I still had them, but I was not going to put it out there, and let ignorant people belittle this life-changing circumstance. It just led me to behave and believe, that one’s deep feelings about death and how it affects someone, is best not trumpeted out to just anybody, who doesn’t give a shit. 

I hope this clears it a little, it is a very personal thing for me. Using my mom’s funeral card as a bookmark that I see and touch every day, is more meaningful to me than a table or a chair at a party.

  • Wedding: June 2020

Whoops, didn’t realize I was supposed to make this a list. Let’s try again:

1. Celebrity (actor/actress, musician, model, etc) – Kardashians, Angelina Jolie

2. Place – Hmm…it’s hard because even the shittest places have something good to them. Never been, but heard enough stories about New Orleans to never want to go there.

3. Any wedding related stuff – Doughnut walls, money dances, long ceremonies, and bridal parties consisting of 14 or more people (7 per side).

4. Tv show/Movie – The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons, Spongebob,  and 50 Shades of Grey. I’m more of a Call the Midwife person, haha.

5. Food – Too many to list. See my previous post on page one. One I didn’t mention there was peanut butter. Never liked it, never will (unless it’s in cookies of course).

6. Name one thing random – Long finger nails. Mine drive me crazy if they start reaching beyond the tip of my finger!

  • Wedding: October 2016

1. Celebrity (actor/actress, musician, model, etc): Agree with the Kardashians…especially Kylie and Kendall. Also any instagram or youtube celebrity

2. Place: Agree with NYC. I’ve never been interested in visiting, nothing about it appeals to me. Also, Florida…I don’t get why people WANT to live there.

3. Any wedding related stuff: The expectation that you have to host not just a wedding…but an engagement party, a welcome dinner, and a day-after brunch.

4. Tv show/Movie: Big Bang Theory…I loathe Big Bang Theory.

5. Food: Avocado toast, sorry.

6. Name one thing random: Spending more time worrying about taking pictures of everything & sharing on Social media than just enjoying the moment, and living life.

  • Wedding: August 2017

1. Drake or The Weeknd. Hate them both, don’t get why they’re so popular. That type of music is awful! (ETA: I notice that many other commenters hate the Kardashians – I have to admit I actually really like them and I don’t know why! Their show is just entertaining! Haha it’s kind of embarrassing and Darling Husband makes fun of me for liking them but oh well. I also think Kim is stunning).

2. Athens. It was dirty and boring!!

3. Favours. We didn’t have them. Why do I need to give a gift to people for attending my wedding? I’m already giving them free food and booze?

4. The Crown. It doesn’t appeal to me.

5. I like pretty much all food, except olives. But I find people either love olives or hate them so idk if that’s a particularly interesting one.

6. Winter camping. So many of my friends post pictures of them camping in the snow while holding a cup of coffee. I’ve been winter camping once and it was AWFUL! So cold!! I’ll stick to camping in the summer thanks.

1. Celebrity (actor/actress, musician, model, etc) – Denzel Washington

3. Any wedding related stuff – Any of the “princess”-ey BS.

4. Tv show/Movie – Friends, Family Guy, Sex in the City, lots of others…

5. Food – Starbucks anything, Pizza

6. Name one thing random – Girls who “dont like other girls,”

  • Wedding: September 2018
  1. Ed Sheeran. I find most of his songs really insipid and blah.
  2. Dubai. Been there. Hated it.
  3. (Photos of) feeding each other wedding cake. I find it pretty gross and not cute.
  4. The West Wing. I’d never seen this before, but my fi loves it. He’s made me watch 6 episodes so far and I find the characters annoying and the plots confusing.
  5. Vinegar, especially on fries. I hate the taste of vinegar anyway, but why do you want to make the fries cold and soggy?!
  6. Apple products. I find them overhyped, expensive and unintuitive.

teamroro :  your comment about Voodoo donuts is hilarious! We waited in line for them when we were in Portland and I was so disappointed in how mediocre they were! Yes they’re “instagram friendly” but ugh, the ones with the cereal just taste stale!
