It bugs me when things are drawn out (like awkward pauses in the night – nothing going on/scheduled).

Off the top of my head it would be:

  1. People inviting themselves
  2. Future Mother-In-Law telling me how to spend the money when she hasn’t offered any.
  3. The 800% markup on everything “bridal”

Im sure I’ll think of more later

I won’t list them as I know there are some bees here who plan to use them at their wedding but there are cetain songs that I literally cringe to when I hear them played at weddings.

@Pinksapphire: I don’t like large crowds of people. I really don’t like large crowds of drunk people. I really don’t like people at all when I am hungry! My pet peeve is a wedding that has nothing to eat or cheap food. WTF… I got dressed to the dime and purchased a nice gift, please feed me! Secondly, I do not expect to drink my beverage out of a jar. I would rather be thirsty.

@Soladylike: Aaaaahaha “beverage out of a jar.” Yes, shabby chic certainly seems to be the trend in weddings now.

I really don’t like the mustaches. I don’t understand. I think they’re so bizarre.

@Pinksapphire: I hate the bouquet toss too!  I’m definitely not having it at my wedding, I will actually get up and “go to the bathroom” when that part of the reception comes up!

Otherwise I don’t think anything in particular stands out to me.

ETA: oh wait, I did think of something – line dances!  Not a fan…

I’m 100% against the Chicken Dance.  I hate it!!!

Oh and I hate the whole penis montage thing at bachelorette partys.  I love men and I love my man, but they (penises) are NOT attractive and I don’t want to drink from, eat or wear one.  No thanks!

@Pinksapphire: I HATE that! The exact reason why we are not doing the bouquet and garter toss.

As a guest my pet peeves are outdoor weddings in uncomfortable weather, disposable cameras during the ceremony (they are sooo loud and obnoxious and really, who still uses disposable cameras?!?), cold food, too-long lines at the bar, sit down dinners that drag on too long between courses, stinky DJs and stupid props.

I HATE head tables. Hate hate hate them! The only purpose they serve is for everyone to be on display. You’re the god damn bridal party, you’ll be on display regardless. It’s next to impossible to have a conversation with anyone who is not sitting directly next to you and in most cases, they separate the bridal party from their dates. I don’t care if they’ll “just be sitting there for dinner”, If I attend a wedding with my husband, I expect to sit with him.

This is a pre-wedding pet-peeve.  I can’t stand that after you’re engaged EVERYONE that has you have ever spoken to suddenly thinks they will be invited to your wedding. I have so many people say “I can’t wait to come to your wedding” and I have only been around them once or twice! I want people I actually know and talk to on a regular basis at my wedding!!

When the bride and groom don’t smile at their own wedding reception.

Seriously, it kills the mood and people pick up the vibes of an unhappy couple. They might be completely in love with each and other and totally happy, but when they are miserable at their own wedding OR have a huge, bridezilla attitude going on, I just shake my head.

My pet peeves are: Cash bars and long gaps between ceremony and reception. I know some bees chose to do these and that’s okay if it works for them. But as a guest, I can’t stand either!
