sorry that people are being so rude. this is exactly why we decided on a sunday in the late afternoon. i didn’t want to hear the moderately-far guests say that they couldn’t take off work early or whatnot. this way on sunday people can stay if they want or go home early. up to them and i don’t have to deal with complaints! i hope it gets better for you, could you look into a sunday or would people say the same thing?

saturday weddings are just so hard to get nowadays due to all the rules and regulations. ugh!

I have three Friday weddings and one Sunday wedding this year in addition to my own which is a Saturday. Are the others convienent for me? Not at all, but I would never in a million years complain to them about it! I can only afford to take 1/2 days off for the Friday ones because of vacation days I need for our wedding/honeymoon so I might miss the ceremonies but will surely be there as soon as possible.

They should for sure be more understanding and suck it up! Sorry they are being such pains in the butt

oh.my. god. I’m so sorry you are dealing with these RUDE people! i am also getting married on a friday and no one has said a thing! Nine months is plenty of time for people to make the arrangements they need to with work- it’s a WEDDING no boss is going to give someone a hard time for needing a half day or even a whole day! ugh just stop picking up the phone.

I agree, what is wrong with people???  What a ridiculous thing to tell you to replan YOUR party to accomodate LAZY people!!  Whatever.  It’s one fricken weekend.  Make a sacrifice people.  Friday weddings aren’t a big deal.  The sooner you send out the Save-The-Date Cards the better!  People can stop complaining!  It’s a done deal people, you aren’t changing anyone’s mind!

I feel you’re pain!!  I haven’t gotten any complaints yet (except from my fmil, but that’s another story), but my wedding is on a Friday at 11am so people will definitely have to take off work if they want to come (we’re hoping to cut down on a huge guest list this way!)   And my FI’s little sister sounds a lot like your Future Sister-In-Law.  Like you I didn’t expect much from her, but now she’s giving us grief about not being able to afford her dress (she’s 23 & it’s $50!!).  Just try to remember that no matter what, no matter who does or does not come, you’re wedding will be beautiful & you will have a wonderful day!

I’m sorry that people are being lame. It’s your wedding and people should be supportive.  Take heart in knowing that those who truly care for you will be there to help you celebrate your most memorable day!

So sorry that you are going through this!! Wow! People in general seriously trip me out on a daily basis! I went through something “kinda” similar. My cousin (by marriage) found out that my wedding was on the same day as her other cousins (who I am not related to) and had the nerve to ask me to change my date.Then she told me that herself or her 2 daughters would not be able to come to my wedding because her other cousin got engaged 1st!! Okay…fine…whatever! But it didn’t stop there….she asked found out who my caterer is, just so happens to be the same company that her “other cousin” is using. She called her “other cousin” and told her that we would be using the same people…freaked out the other bride, because the owner of the caterering company had apparently “promised” her that she would personally be at her wedding/reception. So she calls the owner and complains. making it sound like I said that the owner would be at mine. I could care less if the owner is there or not!! WOW!!! I feel SO much better!!! =) Anyhow my wedding date is  staying the same!

I don’t know if I would ask a college student to skip a class. You are paying for a wedding and she (or someone in your family) is paying for her education. You chose a Friday wedding out of convenience for yourself not your guests. And your guests are telling you that, it is inconvenient for them. Maybe they will change their minds in the future or change their plans to fit yours.

I feel you everyone says, “It’s your day” and then they want to run the show!
