“When is your wedding??”

  • Wedding: January 2013

My favorites so far have been the following:

“WHY January!? It’s so cold/what if it snows?!” Yeah, I’m aware that it’s cold in this area that time of the year. EVERYONE else gets married during the warmer months, and it is therefore usually WAY more expensive to get married during those times. Additionally, January, while it is usually the coldest month around here, it’s also usually one of the DRIEST times of the year. AND, I’ve always loved winter!

“Your wedding is in January? You have PLENTY of time!” Actually, I don’t. Our wedding is 4 months away, and I have a ton of things that still need to get done.

“Why are you having a formal wedding?! Everyone will be so uncomfortable!” Because it’s what both Fiance and I want, if you don’t like that, then you don’t have to go.

“It’s not all about you/FI, it’s about the joining of 2 families!” This might be partially true, but isn’t it also about the joining of two PEOPLE and the BEGINNING of their lives together as husband and wife?

“It’s JUST a party/one day!” You’re right, it’s JUST one day/a party, but it’s one that Fiance and I (hopefully) will only get to do ONCE!

and my recent favorite:

“Nobody cares as much about your wedding as you do.” You know, you’re right,  I’m sure they don’t, but I don’t need the unnecessary snark or rude attitude!

“You haven’t {insert wedding task} yet?!?!”

Um, no. Because I work three freaking jobs and go to school. Would you like to do it for me? The answer is always no…

“it’s all about the dress” — Gee, I thought the wedding was about the marriage and getting married, but thanks for clarifying that it’s about a dress.

“Oh, you should really have ____” (insert something costly that just isn’t my thing or my FI’s thing) – Yes, I’d love to pay $1000 for something I don’t really want just because you think it’s a great idea. Yeah, no thanks.

“When are you getting married? Oh that’s soon!” – Yes, I get it, you were engaged for a year or a year and a half. Well, we’ll have been engaged for 8 months – to each their own, stop acting like I’ve commited a crime.

“But don’t you think he should get a new suit?” – No, I don’t think my Fiance should get a new suit since he has a perfectly good one he’s only ever worn once.

“You’re wearing ‘those’ shoes?” – Yes, yes I am. They are comfy.

“But your photographer will be taking a picture of ‘those’ shoes” – Here’s a though – no one says I have to keep the photo, and I can nicely ask them not to take a picture!

My least favorite since we ending up moving our wedding up 8 months, “Are you pregnant?” Nope do the math, if I was I would be giving birth shortly before my wedding, and how in the world would you expect me to be ready for that?! It’s like word vomit!

I am so tired of hearing:

“Why don’t you all just wait?”

“Wow, you’re so young!”

“Are you sure you’re ready?”

my grandma told me not to waste my education…

“Wow, it’s about time!” Yeah, we were together for a long time. I know. I was there.

I got pretty tired of people referencing slavery when talking about my wedding. It only happened a couple of times but that was more than too many. During the planning process, I would talk about my rustic ideas and jumping the broom and people would say “Oh… so it’s kind of slavery themed?” Yes. Because slavery was full of garden flowers and candy bars. How someone turns “rustic” into “slavery” is beyond me. Some people have no sense.

@jayebaby:  What the frack?? Are they joking when they say it? Like “You/your fiance are going to be enslaved to the other!” kind of thing? Because who the heck would have a slavery themed wedding?


My pet hates…

It’s the happiest/most important day of your life – Um, no it’s not. If I’m going to have the happiest day of my life at age 25, the rest of my life is shaping up to be pretty crap.

It’s YOUR day! Do whatever you want to! Nooo…it’s my fiance’s day, too. He gets a say in what we do, even if it’s something I don’t necessarily agree with.

How come you’re not doing XYZ (or you NEED to do XYZ)!! This is a WEDDING! You need to take it seriously!

What theme are you having/Why aren’t you having a theme? This is a wedding, not a kids birthday party. I don’t want a theme, I don’t need a theme. Personally, I think wedding themes are stupid, especially if it’s something that doesn’t reflect the couple at all (e.g. rustic for people that have never set foot in the country).

Oh, I’ve heard that’s really popular for weddings at the moment! I hate pinterest with a passion for making certain “looks” popular. I’m having a backyard wedding with an afternoon tea reception because it’s cheaper, but so many people respond with “Oh, I saw that on pinterest. Lots of people are doing that at the moment!”

  • You should just get married in a courthouse. It would save your parents a lot of money. – I thought about it, but decided that I didn’t want that, so no. And my parents offered to pay, I didn’t make them. I’m trying to spend less than $3,000 on my wedding. Plus, my wedding and the finances behind it are none of your business anyway.
  • You’ve been engaged so long, no one is going to care when you finally get married. – And that’s why you’re not invited 😀
  • So, when are you having kids? You’re going to start trying right after the wedding right? – Nope, never having kids. 
  • But why not? Why are you getting married if you’re not going to have a family?– Because people get married because they love each other?

“Have you considered ___?” Yes – we considerd that and decided we didn’t want that. Thank you.

“Well. It’s your day.”  Usually after I’ve disagreed with whatever they just suggested.

“It’s only one day.” In reference to spending money on the wedding.

“At the end of the day, you’ll be married.” Yup – but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to put some thought into the details.

“You have everything done!” No, I don’t and I probably won’t finish everything I’d like to do before the wedding and will have to prioritize my projects.

“We’re almost done.” My Fiance says this all the time!  He just doesn’t realize how much goes into making sure that the day goes smoothly.

“You’re so organized!” Normally in reference to my wedding planner/binder.

“Don’t Worry”

OMG how can you tell me not to worry? You have 10 days to pay for the venue and you havent. You have 2 weeks to order your bridesmaid’s dress and you haven’t. You have 11 days to get fitted for your tux and you haven’t.
