My fiancee’s family and mine are really close, we grew up as best friends, all of our siblings were best friends with each other, etc. so there is no need for a dinner or event for everyone to meet, instead his family has decided to throw us a wedding roast.
My question is, I know it’s all in good humor and I should and will just laugh along but what to I do if there are jokes that go too far and are hurtful? Having just started birth control my emotions are all over the place and I’m scared I’ll start crying and look like a poor sport. So what would ya’ll do? How would you hide it or suck it up? Or would you??

I would never go to a wedding roast. I wouldn’t like my family or his making fun of me before the wedding.

I would politely refuse this. Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

I’m sorry, but I have never heard of a wedding roast. What exactly is it?
From what I gather, it sounds like an event to make fun of the couple (or just the bride/groom?). That doesn’t sound very celebratory to me. I am also an emotional person, and while I can take a joke pretty good, not everyone understands the line between having good fun and being rude or mean. I’m not sure I would like to go to an event like this. It sounds like things could get out of hand easily, even if it was originally intended to be good fun.

Honestly, this kinda sounds like christmas in my family 😉
We’re all about picking on each other, but that’s the kind of humor we sport. If it’s not your style, I’d turn it down though. No sense in getting all worked up over something so simple, especially if your afraid that it could shed negative light on you.

Nope. I wouldn’t be down for this. I’m not overly sensitive but this would be one of those things that would get to me. Plus your emotions are going to be all over the place right before the wedding, I don’t see it going well at all.
