Humor Me. What's a random annoyance for you?

Hey ladies,

Humor me! So many people have gone overboard with the wedding – MY wedding.

What are some of your annoyances?

Of course, I’ll start.

· People that I was never close with or considered a friend told me that they wanted to be invited to the wedding.

· Every family function or friend event that I attend – even when it is NOT about me brings up my wedding: What are your colors? What are you wearing? Who are you inviting? How are you doing this/that and the third?

Trust me, I love my wedding and am excited to have one. Of course, I care about my marriage more. However, I hate when other people bring it up and make it the topic of their conversation because sometimes, I just don’t want to always think – wedding, wedding, wedding.

So, what are your random annoyances?

    Annoying for me: Brides to be with all the petty neurotic issues...I’ve see so many ridiculous questions/issues on here over the past year that make me say “are you $&?€!# serious?” There are no hard and fast rules, it’s your wedding day and do what makes you happy...I assure you, Martha Stewart will not be in attendance critiquing your wedding.”

    if it makes you happy, do it!!

    My annoyances are unwanted guests inviting themselves (their feelings will be hurt because I am not sending them an invite).

    People telling me what I should and should not and what I want and don't want for MY own wedding.

    Unwanted guests inviting people (again, feelings will be hurt).

    People not listening to what I SAY about MY day.

    One of my staff members flat out asked me if she was invited to the wedding and it was super awkward telling her no.

    I fully intend to walk myself down the aisle as I don't have a father and my mother is not the most motherly person around to put it nicely. But she keeps asking me if she can walk me despite my saying no like 100 times.

    Also, my dear finace is procrastinating the heck out of picking groomsmen and its driving me nuts. We're a little less than 10 months out. I told him he needs to ask them by the end of this month because people need to budget for these things.

    That would definitely annoy me. I hope it all works out.

    People contacting me over silly things... the number of people who have called/texted me about hotels has been insane (despite the options being listed on the wedding website.) More than one person has also complained about specific hotels not being nearby since they have points cards or “prefer that brand.” 🙄

    FH and I just had a conversation this morning about unwanted guests. Hence, my posts of annoyance lol. SO many people randomly pop up and want to be involved about your wedding and its frustrating.

    The fact that you even have options is enough. People don't realize how much weddings are a hassle and the website is there to alleviate those hassles. Sigh, lol.

    AGREED. There are some things where I'm like "Wow, you're really going through that, I'm sorry" and others where it's like "Did you really ask that? Yes. Yes, you did." Lol.

    People who assume they're going to be invited is a big one. Literally the entire office I work in is expecting an invite just because my coworker just got married and invited our whole office (she doesn't have any family and could do so). Not to mention, I hardly know most of these people, what makes you think you'd be invited to the most personal event in my life so far?

    Also super annoyed with my mom laughing, rolling her eyes, or saying "no one does that" when she asks me about my plans.

    Number one annoyance is probably my FMIL making EVERYTHING about her ex husband (FH's father and best man). Literally every time she mentions the wedding, she has to say something about him or his new wife. Already prepared for more drama to come from her.

    I'm also starting to get random people I rarely talk to telling me to send them an invite. I'm also annoyed with unprofessional vendors.

    -People Hinting without just saying what they mean (dad hinting at expecting a traditional big cake instead of the 12 mini cakes I already told him about to pick up, dad hinting literally 29 hours before the wedding that we should do a rehearsal of walking down the aisle when it’s pretty obvious he’s not giving me away, step mom hinting that fake flowers are cheap even though SHE used fake flowers at hers)

    the list goes on.

    -Groomsmaid’s anxiety. Like, I understand anxiety. But it’s day before the wedding, and she’s still flip flopping on if she wants to do it, cause of the responsibility. You didn’t spoke to the groom at all after he asked you, he only wants you to stand behind him, no duties, no outfit, and you’re the only person he wants to be by his side during his wedding. Just show up, that’s all he asks and wants.

    Only annoyance I got is my mom and her thinking she knows best and what I should and need to be doing when we haven't ask her for a damn thing for our wedding... Just annoying. Who knows by the time I get married I may not even be speaking to her.

    Totally with you on people always asking about the wedding! Ours is still a year and a half away and I always get a weird reaction when I tell them the date (like they are annoyed at ME for taking time to plan and save money for my own wedding).

    My coworker recently got married, and I went over to talk to her about her wedding, look at pictures, etc. Another coworker came over and started asking me about my wedding and I kept trying to focus it back on the girl who had JUST gotten married instead of talking about me..

    First thing, when someone asked about my venue (vintage airplane museum) then said.... oh, I've never heard of someone having a reception there, that's weird!!😡

    Someone asked what my colors were (mustard yellow, burgundy, rosegold and navy) they said I have never seen colors like that in a wedding. Because apparently she has been to every wedding ever done in the world.

    We are wearing converse and someone rudely said oh that's tacky

    People asking can you really afford all that!😡

    The pushy people for invitations are my worst annoyance. We are limited on the # of guests we can have due to the size of our venue so we have to limit how many people we invite. It's already hard enough to limit the list but also explaining no can be rough.

    Mine were people telling me to spend whatever so I could have it exactly how I want... Um I paid for everything myself. Doesn't mean I want my expenses to be thru the roof.

    Then they are welcome to stay where they have points accrued.

    My BIGGEST annoyance... people walking up to me and asking "Where's my wedding invitation?" Knowing they are NOT invited. I've been kind of rude to the few that have asked because for one, that is an absolute RUDE question to ask and you asking is not going to get you a wedding invitation.

    If it was family asking, I would understand a little bit BUT this is people I work with who I rarely talk to and don't even have a relationship with... they just want to brag and say they got an invitation.
