1. Jennifer Lawrence – I never really enjoy anything she’s in but people seem to love her 

2. Vegas – Went once and have no interest in ever going again, it’s just not my thing 

3. The Super Bowl. I don’t care. 

4. Cauliflower is disgusting and I will never use it as a replacement for delicious carbs.

5. It’s not so much overrated but the pressure people put on themselves for this “perfect day” It’s just a party. It’s supposed to be fun. Have good food, good booze, and music and people will have a good time. The rest is all just fluff there’s no reason to stress about.

  • Wedding: November 2014

1. Actor: Adam Sandler – he drives me crazy and I don’t find him that funny

Singer: Ariana Grande – sure she’s talented…still don’t like her

2. Paris – this is completely based off of travel blogs and reviews I’ve read as I’ve planned trips in the past. I just have no desire to ever go there based on the horrible reviews I’ve read. I’m sure there are beautiful and wonderful aspects…but just no thanks.

3. Valentine’s Day- too much pressure to buy overpriced items to show someone how much you love them. 

4. Technically a drink…but beer. I can’t stand it and don’t see anyone finds it refreshing. 

5. Garter toss- I find it a little cringey and icky

Jennifer Aniston- she plays the same person all the time. Also, Matthew Mcconaughey as I have friends in the film industry say he’s extremely unpleasant. Also deeply dislike Kardashians and don’t know why they are still around. 

 

NYC! Even though I live here and love it. I just find it so tiring for tourists as so much to do. Also Vegas is the biggest waste of money and time. 

 

Valentine’s Day as it is so commercialized and I hate hate Thanksgiving! All the cleaning up after cooking “to bond with family” just order takeout. 

 

Oysters and cheese

 

First look, I don’t get it, it looks like a new thing that popped up in the last 5 years? Also first dances, especially when people try to do a show. Sometimes it’s funny but most often it is cringe. You don’t need to ‘entertain’ guests.

  1. Entertainer (name one singer and one actor/actress): Ariana Grande. I find her voice to be so pitchy. 
  2. Place for vacation/visiting Hollywood but I’m a California native. Fisherman’s Wharf/Pier 39 in San Francisco – I live in San Francisco and we have so much more to offer
  3. Any annual popular event, holiday, etc. World Series etc. I don’t care about sports. 
  4. Food Bacon (controversial! haha I love turkey bacon but I think a lot of the times normal bacon is gross)
  5. One random wedding related thing Wedding favors! No guests care about them!

  • Wedding: July 2018

1. Jennifer Lawrence & Bob Dylan (sorry, I just don’t get it ) 

2. Times Square – get me out of there! 
3. Valentine’s Day – Do we really need an overly commercialized day to show our partners we love them? 
4. Cauliflower – it is not rice, it is not mashed potatoes, and yes, I can always tell the difference. Yuck! 
5. Choreographed “surprise” dances

  1. Entertainer (name one singer and one actor/actress): Chrissy Teigen.  
  2. Place for vacation/visiting San Francisco.  
  3. Any annual popular event, holiday, etc.  New Year’s Eve.
  4. Food — cookie butter
  5. One random wedding related thing — Getting ready photos.  They are so staged and silly to me.  I don’t care about photos of myself in a cutesy bathrobe while someone is pretending to apply blush to my already-made up face.

Will Ferrell / Adam Sandler (pretending to be a man-child isn’t acting); Arianna Grande (she is problematic and just bugs me)

NYC – it’s crowded, expensive, dirty, gross. I enjoy the shows and seeing my friends that live there…but otherwise I just don’t get the appeal.

Valentine’s Day – see above comments

Hot sauce on everything. I don’t mind hot sauce, but why do people feel the need to smother it on everything they eat?

People asking what your wedding theme is…isn’t the theme just wedding? Or memorial chairs – I would never hate on someone that had one, but personally I don’t understand them and sometimes find them creepy.
