@brandybelle:  Also, that’s horrible! Why would someone even say that.

My sister (and MOH) will react to things she doesn’t like by saying they are “gross” or “sick.”  Such as nude colored shoes. 

Because she’s thinking this:

When I mean this:

She doesn’t have a lot of tact and I think she sort of prides herself on it? But sometimes she is just misinformed…

@MmeVT:  Ugh. I have a (male) friend who prides himself on “not holding back”. Dude, you’re just rude. It’s not something to be “proud” of. We’re adults and as such should know when to keep our damn mouths shut.

I was informed today by a co-worker that my ring cannot have real diamonds set into the halo and band because you cannot set diamonds into silver and the jeweller must have ripped us off (its white gold btw not silver and who cares anyway) and my centre stone is a sapphire to which she proceded to ask if it was cheap (rude) because were having a small wedding which is cheaper than a big one and told me that her ring was a 1/2 ct diamond that cost £700. I just told her that i love my ring and i love sapphires and while it may have been cheaper than hers it had greater sentimental value because she doesnt even wear hers!!!

Some people are just so rude. This girl also tried to tell me how to plan every detail of my wedding and she hasnt even started to plan hers yet.

My new SIL posted a melodramatic Facebook post the night before our wedding about not understanding how people can be so hurtful & she’s just trying to hold it together (because we didn’t invite her loser boyfriend of a few months).  She then frowned the entire ceremony, didn’t speak to me in the receiving line, and CRIED during the entire dinner, causing a scene.  DH finally told her the loser boyfriend, who still came & and was in the hotel room, could come if it would make her stop crying.  Once he showed up, she got drunk and danced but still never spoke to me.  I honestly think she was trying to ruin our wedding (which she didn’t because we ignored her BS) and threw a hissy fit until she got her way.  AWESOME.

@MexiPino:  Yea, I think she thinks because she’s my sister that she can just tell me whatever she’s thinking but it’s not like it doesn’t ever hurt my feelings! Thankfully she’s not like that with everyone…

“Why the fuck would you get married on a Sunday?” -Uh, because that’s the date we want to get married and your personal feelings had no bearing on the day of the week.

I was told to get a bigger venue so that a few of my single friends (single meaning not in any sort of relationship prior to booking the room) could bring a plus one. 

I was also informed that I am selfish, a bridezilla and cheap and that I have completely lost my mind over this wedding……

Well I certainly wouldn’t call her a friend, but…

 

 

 

At my engagement party, I was showing my Engagement Ring, of course!! I do have a large center stone, I will leave it at that 🙂  But when this one girl who was dating my cousin saw it, she turned to her cousin and said, “Well, I am going to need one at least twice that size!”  

Well I didn’t need everyone to gush all over me, but that was quite an insult if you ask me!  My DH did quite well, thank you very much! 

And no they never got married, Thank GOD.  She was an awful person!

“Why did you send ‘save the dates’… now you dont really need an invitation!”

 

“You want a wishing well? Think again” (my father, and sorry I know wishing wells are the devil in the USA but in Australia they’re really common)… um Dad, it’s OUR wedding!

 

“You better be getting us good ”thank you” presents!” (my sister, the MOH)

I can’t even begin to decide. So many that they have rolled off my back… so let’s start with the ones that I remember:

– Guest: By inviting us to your religious ceremony, you are imposing your views upon us! How dare you!

– Bridesmaidzilla: I know you said we could wear any shoes as long as they were blue, but it’s only one day and I want to wear nude shoes. Yes, even if you’re paying for them.

– Guest: Is it OK if I listen to sports results during your ceremony, because I’m not that into religion, thanks? I mean, I’ll use headphones!

– Bridesmaidzilla: your reception is in the middle of nowhere. Can’t you move it? (Note: Our reception was selected because it was accessible. It is only inaccessible if you are travelling from the North via London by public transport, and have no access to taxis. Hardly a common problem).

… that’s just the start…

Some of these are OUTRAGEOUS. Mostly I let stuff kind of roll off my back, lol, but just yesterday, one of our grad school professors asked us, “So how does it feel to know you won’t be sleeping with anyone else ever again?”

 

Who says that?! He’s the kind of person who loves to be really shocking, but, seriously!!

@brandybelle:  This is honestly the prettiest non-diamond ring I’ve seen. 🙂 I had originally wanted a gemstone engagement ring because it’s refreshingly different, but in the end, I let SO picked one with 3 small princess-cut Canadian diamonds (conflict-free) at a non-couture jeweller.

“Dude your world is about to end. No more camping trips or concerts, too bad.”

From a guy friend of SO. Love being told I’m a controlling nutjob because I have lady parts, thanks. In reality I have never once told him he can’t go anywhere. Guy friend knows this but still finds it hilarious.

If I shared, it would change the mood of this whole thread, smh. I can’t think of any slightly funny/non-devasting ones.
