Okay, let me start by saying it WAS rude for her to say that and I’m sorry she’s not enthusiastic about your wedding, but… weddings totally are a pain in the ass.  Lol!

Lol, she does sound super irritating and the comment made to Fiance was a bit…. Rude? Dismissive? But I agree with PPs, weddings ARE a PITA! Especially coordinating people and dates and blahhh… I think you’ve done a very nice thing picking your fights. 🙂

@kt23525: Yes, it is a bit weird that anyone who doesn’t have all of this planning crap on their plate would be so inconvenienced that they just had to say something, but maybe she’s just got a very low threshold for responsibility?  I really don’t know.  Sorry.  :S

ooooh, I think I would’ve said a few things that would’ve gotten me into hot water!  from them AND my FI!

sure, they’re a pain, but… ummm… kinda rube, nasty and cruel to say that to someone who’s done all the legwork AND after you’ve volunteered to do something.  Not to mention the fact you’re the bride!!!!

so sorry you’ve gotta deal with such comments and attitude from someone who’s going to be a part of your family.  Especially it being your FI’s parents! 🙁 

good luck?

Yeah, I definitely got to the point that when people asked me about the wedding I was just like… “this is the most inconvenient thing I’ve done in my life”.  Some days are just like that 🙂

She shoudln’t have said it, but she probably thought she was commisserating, not being rude.

Actually weddings are a royal pain in the ass but she shouldn’t have said it.  It probably just slipped out. Open mouth and insert foot sort of thing.

I agree it sounds more like a commiserating comment rather than being rude…? That’s how I read it. Brush it off, move on. Stressing out over it will accomplish precisely zilch.

It’s been said. Do remember though that she didn’t say YOUR wedding was a pain in the ass, just weddings (in general) are a pain in the ass.
