Shocked at my friends negativity!

Recommended Posts

LOL! one actually had us buy $900 bridesmaids gown..granted they paid half..but still 500 for a dress that was so ugly I couldnt stand wearing it or have I ever worn it again. And i dont even spend that on dresses for myself...I should do that! lol.

I wont even bother though..for myself I dont even want a bridal party..i told him i rather just have my sis as the MOH, his best man our families and thats it..so its up to him if he wants his groomsmen then i'll have to suck it up.

Karen - I know

 

Even my FI's female friends have been nothing but supportive...

 

I guess maybe being female people have a picture in their head of the way the way thay always pictured you getting married??

 

I'm hoping that in time everyone will get on board - and originally we weren't doing an AHR and now we are, so hopefully people will put up or shut up :)

eh..tell them to shuttup! Same here though with his female friends..super excited, calling me giving me ideas all that good stuff..my friends? if u get me a good price ill go, or another is saying if she will be pregnant she cant fly(mind you she isnt pregnant), march is a bad month..im officially done I told him if we have your friends there thats enough for me lol. I dont know if its that females pictured you getting married i think its that they picture you inconviencing them, which is sad considering what you give & what u get in return.

Thats nice that you're doing an AHR..I love your date by the way!

Both mine and hubby's friends displayed equal amounts of douche-baggery when it came to our wedding. Its a hard pill to swallow at times, but dont let it get you down. The majority of us have had to deal with the same issues. Enjoy your wedding planning and your wedding and screw anyone who doesnt enjoy it along with you! smile03.gif

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
