My wedding/reception will be outdoors at one location.

So I keep getting…

“Why are you getting married all the way out on there?” (Seriously, the place is about 30-40 minutes away from us and our family even though they are coming from different directions)

“What if it rains?!” (there’s a house for cocktail hour and the reception is in a covered pavilion with drop-sides if necessary)

“Why do you want to get married outside?” BECAUSE I DO. IF IT’S HOT SUCK IT UP. It’s a few hours and it’s our day to celebrate. Plus the house is air conditioned if anyone is really feeling that they need a break.

I seriously have been feeling this need to have to preface my choices everytime someone asks about the wedding… well it’s outside BUT there’s an airconditioned house… and it’s covered… blah blah. My Fiance and I chose this because it’s what we really want and I don’t think we should have to explain ourselves.

“So when can we expect a baby?”


Ugh, I get it ok – we have been together for 5 years and are 26, you were married with three children by this point.  But, no thank you!!!

“Is everything done?”


NO – everything won’t be done until like a couple days before – and still, there will probably some things that will be left undone lol

I’m so sick of hearing “so how much time’s left?” I know I’m down to a couple weeks, I don’t need someone reminding me of this fact 20 times every day!! 

Another one is “are you excited/nervous?” I actually started to respond by putting on a confused look and saying “I don’t know…should I be?” Most people get surprised by this answer and have no response…aaaahh, blessed silence lol

@KCKnd2:  Oh my gosh, yeah. The whole “best day of your life” is second to my hatred for “your special day.” Like, if this is going to be the best day of my life, then what the heck is the point of getting marriage? I want to be just as happy or happier after twenty years of marriage than I am that first day.

There haven’t really been too many comments that have irked, or hurt me.. But one day Future Father-In-Law asked if we and set a date, after I told him the date we have in mind he said, “oh! That’s so far away! It may not even happen!


I know he meant that it is a long engagement, not that he thought Fiance and I would split up in that time… BUT JESUS!

Some of my favorites are “why”, “you know you could buy a boat for that kind of money” and “It’s just one day.”

Question “Who’s paying for all that?”

We are. 99% My inlaws paid the deposit on the reception. I think $600.

Question “Why didn’t you wear a white dress?”

Because I didn’t want to.

Question “Why can’t you get married in KY? WE all live here.”

Because I don’t live there. 

Question “Why didn’t you get your makeup and hair done?”

See Question 1. Also, a windy, hot beach wedding? No thanks.

Question “Why Florida? WE want to go somewhere else for vacation.”

So go. (It was really hard for me to bite my tongue on that one.)

Question “Did your wedding attire even fit?”

Yes. You can stop insinuating that I am fat.

Question “Who’s putting me up? Who am I staying with during the wedding week?”

Who are you staying with? Not me.


Ugh…my wedding wasn’t even two months ago-the questions I received were really rude and inappropriate. Mostly my grandmother, wondering who was paying for everything, and if I was still fat…she didn’t come..they wanted to go to Myrtle Beach instead. Sorry.

**EDIT In my rage, I read the question wrong. What PHRASES…whoops. The most overused one was from Future Mother-In-Law, now Mother-In-Law..”It’s your day, just tell us what to do!!” I’m not going to tell you what to do. Just be ready on time.

@kittyface:  Yes, exactly! I don’t think people realize how pessimistic that whole “best day of your life” mindset actually is when you think about the implications. 😉

“That’s not how it was done at any wedding I’ve been to,” said in a way to indicate that I am either stupid or insane.

I don’t care how they did it!  If everyone else jumped off a bridge…

We had an intimate Destination Wedding with just our parents, siblings, and 1 friend each and this is what we got all the time….

1) You’re not going to throw a party when you get back for everyone else?

Um….no….its my wedding, didn’t know I had to please everyone else!!!!

2) That’s selfish! Both of you guys have HUGE families and they all want to be there!

Exactly why we had a total of 16 guests at our wedding, we’re not big on huge weddings people, nor the thought of spending out of the ass for it either!!!

3) About time!!!!

Go kill yourself……………………….PLEASE!


*ok….that is all for now /end rant*

I’m done with that BS, lol, but here are my favorites:

I bet you’re excited *awkward nudge* … I always wanted to say “No” completely deadpan and see what happened.

It’s the bride’s day! … Not really. I’m not marrying myself. I also didn’t plan this thing by myself and honestly, only about 40% of it was just me, if that.

Weddings are just so expensive! I know someone that spent ___. … Okay, number one, we had a budget wedding. Number two, I don’t care what your second-cousin-twice-removed-who’s-marrying-a-douchebag paid for her wedding.

It’s about time! … Oh, is it?
