Are you guilty of telling a wedding white lie? From fudging the truth to your parents by saying "it's too late" to change something, or telling a nosy uninvited wedding guest that you had to "keep things small" or that the guest list is "mainly family" - sometimes a little white lie can ease the awkwardness!

Have you told a wedding white lie? True or false?

    False. No judgment, but so far I've been able to be 100% honest. But, I've mostly planned with my mom and she's really chill.

    True aha. It had to do with if I had room for plus ones. I technically did but then it was more like a seat at a random table

    True, actually as of yesterday. I hadn't had to until yesterday, when I added a bridesmaid. I had a group of 4 friends (including me) in middle and high school and we were all super close. I ended up getting back and touch with them about a year ago, but with 2 of them more so then the 3rd. I asked the two I had gotten really close with again to be in the wedding, but I realized that not asking the third (she is coming to the wedding) would end up in hurt feelings and grudges and it just isn't worth it to me, so I ended up asking her. I told her that I had just recently asked the other two as well, so that she wouldn't feel like an afterthought. So stressful!

    True. Actually it wasn't me, it was my FH. He had to tell his sister that the venue didn't have any dates available during the summer because she got mad that we are having a September wedding instead of one during the summer. We never even asked if they had any dates open in the summer because I never wanted a summer wedding to begin with.

    False and hopefully I won't ever have to! I've been planning this mostly on my own, with the help of my mom, and FH, and they're pretty easy going. I haven't felt the need to lie to anyone about anything.

    False. I've been pretty honest so far. I don't see my extended family a lot, so none of them have had the chance to bug me about wedding details and if they were invited or not haha.

    True. 💔 My mother kept badgering me to get a plain cake from Walmart to save money so I lied how much I paid on my bakery cake so she’d feel better(even though I’m paying for everything) I know she means well but I wanted to design my own cake.

    We told FH's mom that we could only have 100 guests when the venue actually let us have 125 so she'd stop adding more and more people that we had to invite.

    True.. i don't think my cousin's drug addict father of her child who stole a lawn mower, bike, etc off of her parents lawn needs to be at my wedding.. i said i didn't have room for the plus one. (they are never actually together. she takes him places some times but again, they aren't a couple anymore.) me and cousin are not close either

    False for now, but considering I'm not a very blunt person, I'm sure a few white lies will be coming from me as we get closer

    The worst I’ve done so far is tell people who ask if they’re going to be invited “we haven’t done a lot of work on the guest list yet” even though I’ve almost nailed down who is and isn’t going to be invited. The most recent being my best friend and bridesmaid’s mom (who asked my mom, who then asked me)

    False. I'm not the sugar coat kind of person so I just kind of go with "honesty's the best policy" especially for this
