Guy I work with: “You’re engaged?”

Me: “Yep.”

Him: “You don’t have a ring.”

Me: “Yes, I do, right here” (flash ring)

Him: “Oh. I didn’t see it.  Is that a promise ring?”

Me: “….no.  It’s an engagement ring…I’m engaged.”

At that point I was very concerned the conversation would start over back at the beginning in an endless loop of idiocy but luckily someone else walked in.

@Amayansong:  i’ve had a couple of doozies. (mostly from my parents friends with absolutely no filter)

– How much are you paying per person? (then when i tell them…) WHAT? i’d rather spend that on honeymoon.

– How much is your honeymoon?

– Have you invited _____? Why/Why not?

 

This one I got today from my sisters best friend:

“Is ____ invited to your wedding? ” “yes” “oh, that sucks cause I hate her” -WTF?!

I’ve had a lot of weird questions/comments. 

I think the top one comes from my father: “Why would you want a wedding where all your guests will end up smelling like hay and horse shit?” (We’re getting married on a farm. My dad also used to breed horses, so I thought he would like our choice of venue.)

I’ve also had a lot of REALLY awkward questions about my ring and how we could afford it. It’s not a real diamond and I’m not ashamed of that, but I don’t want to discuss it with people who are being nosy about our financial situation. 

I’ve had some people ask if I’m inviting my estranged mother. Again, awkward.

Then recently, people at work found out I hired a coworker to be my coordinator. People have been gossiping a lot about it… “I didn’t know he was gay, hahaha.” UMM, he’s married to a woman and has a child, so clearly not gay. Oh, wait, you were joking that only gay men like weddings? Asshole. Or “What qualifies him to be your wedding coordinator?” How about he’s the event coordinator at our job… so… that. And also, “Couldn’t you afford to hire a real coordinator?” Actually, no. I can’t. “Why did he agree to be your coordinator?” I don’t know, because I’m paying him and we’re fairly close as far as coworkers go? JEEZ.

@TaurianDoll:  I get asked that all the time! Because you know, you only have Destination Wedding if you’re moving there.

Why I am having the reception in my church hall because there can’t be alcohol there!  That bugs me!

Not to me, but my mum was stressing out because she didn’t have a dress yet. Apparently, her co-workers got in her head about it and told her that the mother of the bride has to have her outfit all planned well ahead of time otherwise the bride will stress out – WTF? I have complete faith in my mother’s ability to dress herself.

Also, Fiance has been asked if he plans on losing weight before the wedding. Yep, nothing better for your self-esteem than getting hints that you’re too fat and you’ll look ugly in the wedding photos unless you get on a diet. He actually is losing weight but it’s based on seeing himself in his footy jumper and thinking he looks awful, not the wedding.

I had one girl at a salon ask me kind of awkward questions, is this your first marriage?  What race is your fiance?  I was like well… guess she doesn’t mean any harm but really can’t we just stick to the safe stuff: colors, location, number of guests???  You’d think people who deal with brides regularly would know better…  ahaha I just thought of a new business – “How to Act Around a Bride: For business professionals in the wedding industry..”

I’ve gotten, “You’re getting married at the Dance Museum… are you a dancer?”

And I want to say…. Dude, you’re getting married at a church… are you a priest?
