guests who complain about everything...
Posted 09 August 2009 - 10:25 PM
There is this one guest, who appeared to be so supportive of our idea to have a DW in the beginning, has now decided to complain about resort, date of the wedding, who we have invited, how much it will cost to go to Mexico (we gave our guests an approx quote so they can save and prepare 13 month notice), and I'm sure many more in the future.. (I'm surprised she hasn't said anything about the swine flu)
She is part of FI's extended family, and it has been difficult to ignore her since she will talk to FI's other family members (including immediate family members) and get them going too!!!
And I don't even understand why they are telling us, I don't care if they complain amongst themselves, but do they expect us to change resorts and our wedding date or something?
Seriously, if she doesn't want to come to our wedding, we dont need her negative attitude anyway and how she influences other people to join her misery.... thanks to forum for allowing me to vent!!!

The best you can do is remember this is YOUR wedding, and if they don't like it they can just suck it up!
I know it's hard to ignore, and it can be stressful, but you will have a beautiful wedding that is the one YOU wanted, and your family will be having so much fun that they won't be complaining when they get there! (That's what I'm hoping for me too... lets cross our fingers!)
Good Luck with everything!!

Some people are addicted to complaining, even when they're in paradise, and you shouldn't let them ruin your special day!

If they continue to make their snide remarks, you can always politely tell them that while you appreciate their opinion, that it is your wedding, and that the only people who need to be happy with the organization of it are you and FI.

We dealt with the same thing with FI's sister....but eventually it died down. Im so sorry though you are dealing with the negativity. Hopefully she will just get over it and enjoy herself buy the time your wedding comes in Dec. Sorry i dont have too much good advice and i know its easier said than done but try not to let her get you down. Your wedding will be AMAZING!!!!
