Also, when people do things that clearly do not suit their personalities because they are trendy (vintage, quirky, hipster- type weddings, or super rustic themes, etc.)

@KatyElle: Really? Do you mean like a honeymoon registry? Why is it so bothersome/a pet peeve? Just curious.

I was considering doing this simply because my Fiance and I live together and our house is established, we don’t really need anything thus making a good sized registry impossible. It isn’t like we can’t afford a honeymoon it is just a nice gift idea that helps with the finances of said honeymoon.

@Treejewel19: Ah but I didn’t say honeymoon registries. I said people who spend a ton of money on their wedding and then ask that people donate to their honeymoon fund because the wedding made them broke. Yes I have seen this on 3 seperate occasions and it isn’t cute.

@KatyElle: Ah ok, thanks for the clarification. Didn’t want to jump on the pet peeve band wagon. Wink

this thread is hilarious!

this is not wedding-day related, but I despise the games they make you play at showers and bachelorette parties. I vetoed games for mine!

@MissBananaBread: LOL. I had a vintage inspired wedding, but if you saw our  apartment and all the antiques, you’d know that it was exactly our style. but I know what you mean!

When people try so hard to embarrass the bride and the groom in their speeches that they don’t actually end up saying anything touching or sweet. A couple jabs are great and funny, but I’ve seen some where it is just an all out burn fest. Not cool!

I hate receiving lines. Loathe them.

I went to a wedding where the receiving line included the entire wedding party. It took forever! And it was so awkward! “Hi, nice to meet you random Bridesmaid or Best Man that I will never see again, I don’t really care who you are, but, uhm, congratulations?”

I’m glad that many couples skip it now.

I hate inside jokes!!!

We have been to a few weddings now where instead of sharing a story about the bride or groom etc.. several bridal party/bride/groom speeches have turned into “haha and remember that time when _______ (instert something that isn’t funny to more than 4 people)”.

In both cases it was old/close friends that we hadn’t been in contact much with recently due to going to different universities/living in different cities – so we felt super awkward and it seemed as if everyone else in the room except their 4 or 5 university friends did too.

@Treejewel19:Exactly. I don’t need much. I was accused of not registering for more expensive things… so.. I picked out horseback riding, private dinner, etc activities on a honeymoon registery website. I may not have 12 placesettings of $100 china, but if someone wants to drop $200 on something.. at least I can have an extra romantic night on the honeymoon?

My pet peeve is when they don’t add any extra / personal touches. I want to see some effort to make it *your* wedding.

Add me to the list of bouquet/garter toss haters. I don’t mind the bouquet toss in and of itself, but I’ve always hated participating. The garter toss is TOTALLY not my thing. In sum, we won’t be doing either.

Somewhat unrelated side note:

I went to a wedding before, and a super Catholic girl had caught the bouquet. Her super Catholic boyfriend was very proud (disclaimer, I am not knocking Catholics, I am just telling a funny/awkward story). So then after some random guy catches the garter, she goes up to sit and the random guy starts doing silly dances around her. Catholic boyfriend was laughing, laughing, laughing at the table, until he realized he didn’t understand what was going on when the moves got more suggestive (disclaimer: I think the random guy was gay, which makes it even more harmless). He was at our table, so he asked “Wait, what is he going to do?” When I told him that the garter goes on her leg, his face dropped, and he marched up in the middle of the floor during the process and grabbed his girlfriend, said she isn’t doing that, and dragged her away. Awkward!

@Stace126:

* I don’t have anything against the actual boquet toss, but I can not STAND when an all out brawl ensues over the flowers. I mean … really? It’s supposed to be for fun and luck. If you’re rolling on the floor playing tug of war with silk lillies, that may be one of the reasons why you’re still single.

OMG. So funny. 😀
