The bride and groom "auctioned" off the bride's garter. Whoever bid the most got to remove the garter but of course the groom stepped in at the last minute. It was super gross and the money grab itself was also nasty. Also, the groom's grandfather was the guy who technically won and bid the most...ugghhh.
Rudest for us was a friend who RSVP'd for him and his wife and then messaged me three days before the wedding on FB telling me that their grown and married daughter was coming with them (and we did not invite her). Then NONE of them showed up.
There is a girl on my FB that one of my friends and I just love to laugh at because this girl is seriously insane. I've known her since elementary school and she was always a bully to me in middle school. For some reason she added me on FB after my FH and I started dating and was convinced that we were BFFs. I'm not sure where this comes from, so that in itself is bizarre. She's had two kids from two different fathers and is now engaged to a different guy that HIT HER WITH HIS CAR. He has actually told her that he is only with her so he doesn't go to jail, but she's staying because he has money. Anyway, she always goes out and leaves her kids with her mom, sometimes unexpectedly staying out all night and not returning for them. You would only know this if you know her in person because on FB she is always posting pics of her kids, which brings me to the reason for this comment. She is always posting on FB about how she absolutely hates girls that go get knocked up by different men and then expect their parents to raise their kids while they go out partying. I keep her as a friend on FB because her crazy posts always brighten my day with how insane they are.
I see too many self-pity posts on Facebook. I mean, complaints here and there are NOT what I'm talking about. I'm talking about people who have nothing to do but whine about "Why can't I catch a break??" or "Why does everything seem to go wrong for me?" UGH!! Grow up. You're an adult, and you probably welcome this sadness/angst/etc. into your life by focusing on it. I deleted a girl for it and a few years later she requested me back. I couldn't remember why I deleted her, so I added her again. Now I remember why, and she's getting deleted again. We do not hang out in real life anyway.
Also, the posts/articles about "What not to post on Facebook." It's Facebook. It's for our personal lives primarily. If you don'y like seeing what someone has to post, hide their posts or just delete them.
Oh, I HATED that about my wedding DisneyNut!!! A lady my mom USED to work with 2 years ago bitched about not getting invited, my mom felt bad and invited her and guess what? Didn't show up! It happened with like 6 people!
A friend's daughter sent her wedding invitations via FB. She then posted information regarding their honeyfund. I declined the invitation.
I have a girl who is on my FB and every time I read her posts I cringe. Here is an example of her post today: Day 7 I am thankful for my best friend Billy Bob. He is always their for me I don't no what I would do without him. He is always their for me and girls. He always stands up for me and tells me not to let know one run over me. I am thankful to have him in my life and girls. He is my best friend and I am thankful for him. One more example: Today I am so eel! (Not one person corrected her)
She works at a day care. That scares me.
BTW, they didn't have a registry. I sent a card and $50
One of my friends posted a fairly generic "Get your RSVP's in people" post. Someone commented about not being invited, and her response was "We're really sorry, we have a limited budget and could only invite our top 400 closest friends and family." Knowing her I THINK (hope... pray...) she was just kidding, but she really did invite over 400 people to her wedding. For the record, I made the cut, so I felt super special.
