I know mine is over and done, but reading posts here and thinking about the whole planning process made me think of all the supposedly helpful advice and comments people would make regarding weddings. So Bees, what do you absolutely do not ever want to hear again in a million years regarding your wedding?
(Sorry if this comes off as severely crabby, but I’ve just had a hell of a day with Darling Husband. Days like this make me question the “dear” part, LOL.)
My list of the last things I’d EVER want to hear in regards to my wedding:
“Why don’t you have a backyard wedding?” (When it’s 90 degrees and 90% humidity in August? Oh hell no.)
“Be grateful to get anything.” Be grateful for what? A cheesy, ugly present/re-gifted item that took no thought at all? Or if person X kicks in money, they get to act like a tyrant? No thanks.
“Well, it’s your wedding…” (said in that passive-aggressive, “oh well, we tried to help you and you’re too selfish/immature to take our advice, and now you’re going to hurt/offend/piss off legions of people” tone of voice). Yes, it is our wedding so butt out, thanks.

My husband and I were just talking about this list night while we were watching Don’t tell the Bride.
When we were engaged, I was shocked at the amount of people that ‘jokingly’ said to us “Don’t Do It!” when we told them we were getting married. Seriously, this is supposed to be one of the most happiest times in our lives and here are these nega-tor’s, raining on our parade with negative comments like “Don’t Do It!”. After the third time, it just wasn’t very funny anymore.

“Oh….. Why so far away?” I get this so much because we have been engaged for 8 months and the wedding is in 18 months.

We are getting married in Disney World. I will be ready to strangle the next person who asks if we are a) getting married at the castle b) Mickey and Minnie are in our wedding party or c) Goofy is walking me down the aisle. The answer to all three questions is absolutely not!
I realize it’s Disney, but I’m not planning a three-ring circus! I’ve learned to just tell people we are getting married in Florida to stop some of the questions.

“You have so much time!” I’m in grad school so really, no, no I don’t. 6 months will completely fly by.

I am sick of hearing:
“Oh well, when we get paid, we will pay for that” (because that is never true)
“Your wedding is YOUR DAY” (because NOTHING is the way i want it, absolutely nothing)
“Well when I got married, my dad only gave me $500 and I paid for my wedding myself” (Your dad was a deadbeat, and still kinda is, and I was hoping that you as my loving parents would be happy that I, your loving child who has never done anything wrong in my life, am marrying a good man and would be more supportive of my marriage)

@Lepidoptera: I ssoo agree, I can’t get any advice because everyone says “do what you want..” its “your party, your decisions.” Sometimes you need someone to kick you in the butt and tell you your idea is bad! lol
