What are your wedding-related pet peeves? Either as a bride/groom or as a guest...
Sometimes having to ask FI what he thinks about something.
Taking the initiative to either look for vendors/venues etc.
when meeting w/ a vendor and FI and I are there, yet she's only talking to me. Also, people constantly saying to FI, its not about you that day, it's abt the bride. I think if FI hears that a lot then they do tend to be laid back and leave it up to the bride b/c its "all about her anyway". That's annoying!
Good question!!!! hmmm. just because something is deemed 'wedding' its automatically more expensive!
The etiquette rules and the ridiculous list of what you 'should' do. We didn't do any of it and our day was amazing!!
The question that come immediatly after you tie the knot..."So when are you having babies!?" Please people give us five minutes to be married!
Right now, its people not sending back the response cards!
I feel like saying "C'mon people, send them in already, don't you know I have seating arrangements to figure out"!!! :)
As a bride, I was so annoyed that there are so many expected traditions - sometimes I just wanted to do things my own way and forget all the traditions! But I know that family is so stuck on traditions like dances and toasts...
As someone on the outside, it really bothers me when someone is stuck on a date... And I know dates are important! Believe me, I wanted May 4th because it was so close to our actual date-iversary, May 1st, and May 4th had a nice ring to it. But, I get annoyed when brides that have just gotten engaged say their wedding date is xx/xx/xx and they haven't even picked a venue yet! Once you book a venue, then you have a date - that's how I feel anyway. A dream venue would have changed my date in a heart beat!
as a guest, i hate it when the bride and groom go over taking their pics and you are just sitting in the reception waiting for them to enter so the meal will be served. as a guest i also hate going to weddings where the bride and groom have clearly told people they where on a budget, and yet they invited well over 150 people and had a sit down dinner for them. then the centerpieces for the reception are 3 gerber daisys in a bud vase and 2 tea light candles. i get the budget, but invite less people and the decor can be improved.
as a bride i really hate seeing other brides with a more laid back personality be run all over by their family and friends.
I have to agree with Nicole....I still get people asking us when are we going to have kids...I assume people mean no harm but seriously we've been married for two years, can we enjoy each other first? I think that's a very personal question, some people want to have kids, some don't, some are not able too, some may not be ready...just my opinion lol..rant over
I would also say I get annoyed when people assume they can invite other people to your wedding just because you know of them....terrible and not cool to do to the bride and groom.
