@SoontobeMrsA: Mine is TERRIBLE and I would never actually do it, but the tallest groomsman and shortest bridesmaid in the wedding party are married.

I kinda want to split them up for “evenness sake”, but would never ACUTALLY do it.

@SoontobeMrsA: I would love to do that.

I would love to tell Future Mother-In-Law that she cant have the rehearsal dinner 1 hour away from where i am sleeping that night and from where 70% of the people ar staying just because its convenient for her.   But I wont because she is paying for it.

I would love to not have to go around to all the tables at the wedding and say hi to everyone. It sucks up so much of your time!

I know it’s totally rude because they made the effort to come to my wedding, so the least I can do is make sure I say hi to them and thank them for coming, ugh…. it’s so selfish, but I totally wish I didn’t have to!

I wish I could have not send invitations to everyone we sent Save-The-Date Cards to. I also wish we could have not invited some people’s significant others, because some of them are REALLY annoying 🙂

@KatNYC2011: This is kind of hilarious.  I was in a friends wedding in September.  There were 6 bridesmaids- 4 of them were about the same height, and then there was me- I was about 3 inches taller than them, and then another girl who was about 4 inches shorter than them.  We were lined up so that it was the 4 same height girls, me and the short girl.  It looks so funny to me in pictures!

If I could, I would only invite people I knew- so leaving off some SO’s.  It would be horrible, and I wouldn’t do it, but I wish I could 🙂

Honestly – there was no etiquette breach that I had any desire to break/forgo.  I think that etiquette is there for a reason and I appreciated being able to take advantage of it.

Similar to hilsy85 and arclee. 

I wish I could only invite people that I really, really want to be there, and not FH’s 8675475 first cousins once removed, second degree cousins, and so forth. One of our groomsmen has a wife I never met but heard only really bad things about. Being a bad bride, I was thinking of ways not to have to invite her.  Of course that was not an option. Now they are getting divorced. As bad as I feel for him, I’m glad I don’t have to invite her anymore. And yes, I’m a little bit ashamed that I feel this way. But only a little.

Because breach #1 is not an option, I really dread the going around the tables, because about 60% of my guests I will hardly know.

@SoontobeMrsA: Ah, that stinks!  If your wedding is in 2012, however, there is still a chance that he finds himself a nicer girlfriend by then. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I’d like to invite people via text/phone call/e-mail.

If I have to send invitations, I’d really like to address the envelopes as “John and Sally Smith” instead of “Mr. and Mrs. John Smith.”  This I might actually do.

I’d like to tell people that they don’t have to give us a present, but if they were going to buy us anything, to just give us the cash instead 🙂

I also wish I didn’t have to go around to all of the tables.  It’s not that I don’t want to talk to everyone, or thank them… I just feel like it is going to be stressful tracking everyone down and making sure we “got” them.

“No kids under the age of 21 at the reception.” on the invitation.  I am not putting it on the invite- but I would like to!  It is on the wedding website though!
