**I understand most people are just asking to be nice & start conversation, so don’t take this too seriously: this is a very lighthearted thread.
It seems like I get asked the same handful of questions MULTIPLE times a day. What wedding questions are you so sick of??
I’ll start us off.
“Are you nervous???”
Well no, I was actually blissfully ignoring everything on my 100+ list of wedding things to do & feeling pretty good in my denial, but now that you’re the 8th person to ask me today, YEAH I AM PRETTY NERVOUS.
“How many people are you expecting?”
“Oh really?? Wow! We had over 300 at ours.”
“Are you loosing weight for the wedding??”
Ok bees, your turn! Include pic or gif if you have way too much time like me.

1. Are you going to have a cake?
2. Are you going to wear ______? Really, you should wear _______ (certain color, style veil, dress, shoes, whatever).
3. Why a destination wedding? You know no one is going to go to that right? (mostly from family, meanwhile we have 70 confirmed guests (all friends and immediate family) and invitations were just put in the mail, so I’m sure we’ll have a few surprises when people actually RSVP)

I get a lot of people asking why we are getting married at the location we chose (it’s about 2 hours away from where we live). If people knew us, they would know why we picked it. And once they see our venue, they’ll understnad why we love it 🙂 It’s just kinda weird because strangers usually ask if we are from there and the answer is “no… we just… really like it there.”

I get sick of people asking how much I spent on my wedding dress. I had a higher budget, big deal. I got what I wanted and it’s none of their business.

MrsTywinLannister: hahaha. The second one reminds me of someone telling me now great _____ venue was after they knew we had already booked a venue. The fuck?

Oh my god, I’m sick of all them. Especially, “What’s new with wedding planning??” What, do you really want to hear about the five barely distinguishable meetings I had with DJs this week?
I get people are just interested, too, but the nitty gritty stuff is just not that interesting to discuss. And I don’t want to rehash all of the conversations I have with vendors overrrr and overrrr. Making a decision on who to hire is taxing enough!

I am kind of sick of the constant “how’s the wedding planning going” because that is all everyone wants to talk about. I do not even get a hello anymore! 10 more months..

cls9q: “Why couldn’t we all be there when you eloped?”
Well… If you were all there, it would have been a big traditional wedding.
“Well no one really wants to elope!”
Oh no… Some of us do… Some of us really do.
lol. Love this thread!! Might not be about wedding planning per say, but still the 10th degree on inquisitions from just about everyone.

cls9q: The one I hate most of all is, “I’m getting an invitation, right?” … :-O!! I never in my life anticipated so many people would try to invite themselves, and I mean EVERYONE! – clients, friends of friends, my MOM’s co-workers, the list goes on and on!!! I never had such gall in my life and they love to put you on the spot wih an audience when they ask! Only 9 months to go …

“Am I invited?”
“When are you going to start a diet?”
So hard to choose which one annoys me the most.

FutureMrsHouy: YES! I realized I made a lot of people un happy when Fiance and I began planning on the low before we were even engaged causing me to be 50% DONE with planning by the engagement and then 90% done within 3 months of the engagement. Lol! I mustve really ruined it for those that had plans of being involved in MY planning process. I never interfered wih theirs and they obviously faired just fine. I think they had so much fun and it was over before they knew it that they want to relive it through me and have me do all the things they didnt get to. Oh well, that’s not how things work with me unfortunately so I guess in the meantime, they have no choice but to live with it. Fiance and I did things just as we wanted and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 🙂
