Haha. I was the best man at my brother's wedding. My dress cost a grand total of $12 because I got it at Value Village, and their present was maybe $20.

/bride's brother was the maid of honor

Weddings are (generally) rude to everyone involved. Really?! You're asking me to spend upwards of $1000 to celebrate *your* love for each other. Fark off.
 
2012-07-08 04:13:57 PM  
Related: over the years I have easily spent more money on others' wedding and shower gifts than we received in total. We were happy to get anything, now people register at five places and ask for expensive stuff.

/latest did like her lawn chairs though

And I thought I was the only best man to a bride. Though most of my expenses with that wedding were because it was a destination wedding (they got married in Luray Caverns, reception at an old plantation house).

\bad part of a destination wedding? When things fark up and you're not home, it's a pain to get them fixed
\\though I didn't have it as bad as my friend, who's a "co-best man" because the bride couldn't decide on a single maid of honor. And he went for his tux fitting two weeks ago...for a wedding a year away.

If I ever get married again, and I really don't think I will, my plan will be this:

1. Pick a bar
2. Pick a time
3. Invite all the people
4. Go to the courthouse and get married
5. "Surprise! Welcome to our wedding reception! Next round's on us!"

I'm taking a long vacation centered around a wedding later this summer. By treating it as a vacation with incidental expenses, not as a burden, I avoid generating feelings of ill will.
 
2012-07-08 06:20:22 PM  
I went to a wedding where I took 5 days holiday from work, spent £450 on air fare, £230 hotel, £200 clothing, £200 gift approx., and broke my ankle on the hotel steps. Bride was angry that I "didn't make the effort to get to the reception". I have never spoken to my cousin (or his farking awful wife) since - I think I'd say some things they might regret.

Heh. Just found out the other day my mother was the best man for a family friend.

That being said:

Yea, if you are in the wedding you have to buy or rent a suit/tux. Depending on location you have to pony up for the gas or air costs, and you have to pay for a room to stay in.

/Lets not even get started on the Bachelor party.

When my boyfriend's sister got married a few years ago, he was one of the groomsmen, and she asked me to be a bridesmaid. I said that was fine. Then she asked me to pay for my dress, a dress I had no input in selecting, and she said it would cost $3,000 before any alterations I'd want. I gave her a funny look, to wit she replied, "What's wrong? Don't like the color?" I told her I wasn't spending $3,000 I didn't have, on a dress I'd only ever wear once, that I had no say in to begin with. She quite literally threw a hissy fit in her parents' house, all because I wouldn't spend $3,000 on that stupid farking dress. I told her I'd wear a dress of my own choosing, in the color scheme she wanted, that was within a price range I'd feel comfortable paying. Her fiance, who is a very nice guy, told her that sounded reasonable, but she stamped her feet like a 5-year-old and demanded I wear the dress she picked out or else I wasn't in the wedding party. I said that was fine, if she was going to act like a child, I wasn't going to participate. I told my boyfriend, though he'd already gotten an earful from her before I got home, and he said I was right to put my foot down about the money, and that to not make me feel bad, he wasn't going to be in the wedding party either.

Thankfully his soon-to-be brother-in-law wasn't an asshole, and had no problem with my boyfriend bowing out. So I wore a $50 dress I bought off the rack at the mall and didn't regret the decision one bit.

TL;DR --> Bridezillas are coonts.

I was a groomsman and it wasn't expensive. Bride let us wear our own clothes, she got us matching ties. Wedding party stayed in a cabin the bride and groom rented for a couple of nights.

Guess I got lucky.

I've been lucky for the last few weddings I've gone to that the bride and groom have been fine with me just wearing my standard wedding/funeral suit. One of my friends actually borrowed it from me to get married in since I couldn't afford a gift and they couldn't afford much of anything.

As far as travel, if you're not my brother I'm probably not going anywhere for your wedding. I don't get that much paid time off.

Dear Penthouse,

When Mr. Chick and I got married we had the ceremony and reception in my very small hometown church. Had a buffet for dinner and a cheap DJ. One of Mr. Chick's friends refused to come to our "redneck" wedding. 2 years later she gets married. Huge church in downtown Chicago, spent more on flowers than we did on our entire wedding. And then there's this little gem in the invitation, "Guests are respectfully asked to dress either in Midnight Blue, Emerald Green or Black so as not to contrast with the tablescapes." I had to look up the word tablescapes.

I hate that coont.

Did the bride ever apologize for her behavior.?
 
2012-07-08 06:36:24 PM  
I've been the maid of honor in two weddings and a bridesmaid in five others. Dress costs are ridiculous. I only ever had to deal with a bridezilla once because I refused to wear shoes that made me the same height as all the other heeled bridesmaids. There's a huge difference in wearing 3" heels and wearing 6" heels; If I'm too short for the wedding party, I'll very happily decline the honor.

Maid of honor duties were pretty cool; I kept it cheap and did laser tag & arcade games, followed by a pirate-themed bridal shower. It pays to have friends with awesome interests.

TL;DR: Costs of being in the bridal party depend on the kind of people you're friends with.

That sound like a relationship that's built on a solid foundation and I bet those two crazy kids are going to go the distance.

Ugh. And I thought the wedding I went to where they had the preacher announce that no one was to touch the dessert table until the bride gave permission was stupid.

This has reinforced every decision I've made about my own future marriage. The only reason we're not married now is because a little more time will allow me to plan the wedding I'd like without offending senior members of my family.
 
2012-07-08 06:43:14 PM  
I was once asked during the wedding party for money by the groom... I hate my family.
 
2012-07-08 06:43:23 PM  
A long time ago, in 2009, I got married. We paid a deposit for our reception hall, got married under the tree outside the reception hall, and before the wedding we paid for the rest of the hall. They didn't cash our checks and refunded the deposit even though they never cashed that check. That was awesome.

The only things that our guests paid for was gifts (registered at Target).

Only negativity was my sister who, after the ceremony complained that she was poor and thought that it was stupid to put televisions and kegarators on the registry because if she couldn't afford it, clearly no one could. I explained to her that we had a few expensive options in case a few of our friends wanted to go in together to buy one nice thing instead of a crap of mediocre things. Worse was that she did this during the reception.

BTW: not one gift came from my sister.

Last wedding I was in: Tux $150. Liquor and blow $500
Rehearsal dinner was Friday night. Wedding was the next day at 11 AM.
Bride and groom owned a nightclub. A drug and booze fueled party went on non-stop at a hotel until 9:00 Saturday morning, when we had to take the best man to the ER for alcohol poisoning. We left him there.
I took his place in the ceremony.
Got showered, and dressed, and went to the church.
Everybody was hungover as fark.
Wedding went off without a hitch.
Bride died 11 years later of liver failure, in her early 40's.

2012-07-08 06:45:40 PM  
Wait so people are pissy because they have to pay $100 for a tux? You get free beer and food!! You are going to tell me you can't spend close to that at a bar. Yes 3k for a dress is stupid but 100 or 200 for your good buddy should never be an issue for one damn day.

My wife and I did essentially this and had a blast. We did brunch and our waiter was *completely* tanked at 11 am. Watching him ruin brunch for half of a restaurant was a much more fun than most weddings/receptions I've witnessed (which, as a hungry-for-work guitar player has been quite a few.) Yeesh, I can't believe most of the bullshiat people will slog through on their wedding day.

2012-07-08 06:49:45 PM  
When I got married, we had the county clerk at the court house do it.

Not only did we just spend about 60 bucks for the Marriage License, we didn't have to put up with a bunch of pretentious religious bullcrap, and freeloading distant cousins who wanted a wet bar for free.

I never understand the appeal with people to spend tens of thousands of dollars to have a ceremony which lasts less than 30 minutes, and puts them in debt for years afterwords.
 
2012-07-08 06:50:57 PM

2012-07-08 06:52:00 PM  
I was a little hurt when my soon to be sister in law had 10 bridesmaids and I wasn't one of them. 10? Seriously? After the whole ordeal, i felt pretty good only having to spend about 500 for hotel, dress, and travel. Yes it was boring, and i probably spent about 2 minutes with my brother over the whole weekend, but whatever. They had a lavish affair, if i learned anything at all, it was what not to do when i get married.

They are still married, yes. I pity him when they start having kids, though. For his sake, I hope they all come out like him. His brother's wedding was far less dramatic. They got married at City Hall, my boyfriend and I were the witnesses. I wore a sundress and flip-flops (they were dressy), both of which I already owned and didn't need to buy.

Lord no. She's the only girl AND the eldest child, so the sun rose and set out of the crack of her ass. To her parents, she did no wrong. They foot the bill for the whole thing, and felt that she should get exactly what she wants in exactly the manner she wants it. Her husband was bending over backward to apologize for her, though. He's a stand-up guy. I mean, if I wasn't with my boyfriend and he was single, I'd be on him like white on rice. Good-looking, intelligent, and a Democrat....though the last two are a bit redundant. I jokingly told him I felt bad for him, because he was too good for her, but he said he loved her, and that was that.

She quite literally threw a hissy fit in her parents' house, all because I wouldn't spend $3,000 on that stupid farking dress. I told her I'd wear a dress of my own choosing, in the color scheme she wanted, that was within a price range I'd feel comfortable paying. Her fiance, who is a very nice guy, told her that sounded reasonable, but she stamped her feet like a 5-year-old and demanded I wear the dress she picked out or else I wasn't in the wedding party. I said that was fine, if she was going to act like a child, I wasn't going to participate. I told my boyfriend, though he'd already gotten an earful from her before I got home, and he said I was right to put my foot down about the money, and that to not make me feel bad, he wasn't going to be in the wedding party either.

Thankfully his soon-to-be brother-in-law wasn't an asshole, and had no problem with my boyfriend bowing out. So I wore a $50 dress I bought off the rack at the mall and didn't regret the decision one bit.

TL;DR --> Bridezillas are coonts.

You are awesome.


Did the bride ever apologize for her behavior.?

Hell, I'm not wondering about the apology. I'm wondering if they are still married?


\Postponed my wedding 3 weeks ago.


Yeah, they're still married. She's still a coont. They want to start a family soon, and I can only imagine how out-of-control farktarded she's going to be when she's got pregnancy hormones raging. I might skip that baby shower.

BronyMedic: rollersnake: I eloped. The only things we paid for were license, rings, and a tip for the clerk at the courthouse, which she refused (I'm a public servant!). I wanted to get married, not be the star of some overrated dog-and-pony folly. It will be fondly remembered by the only people who matter--me and Mr Snake. 20 years later, and it's still the right decision.

/coworker is planning her wedding. I must be missing this essential "girlie" gene because the money she's setting on fire for a "country" wedding is outrageous.
//who wears cowboy boots with a formal dress?!

You call your husband Mr. Snake? Who did you marry, Tommy Lee?

Indubitably: I was married outdoors twice, and it still cost me a fortune twice, so, costly?

*crickets*

You know why divorce is so expensive, right?


You should finish with "rhetorically" or look the jackass, no?

Because I DO know, personally. You?

I'm at the age when my peer group is starting to get married: late 20s.

I've found that it doesn't occur to most people how much money they're asking other people to spend. Putting aside clothes and airfare, I've gotten hammered pretty hard on hotels. People insist that everyone in the wedding party stay at the same hotel, and the select a pretty expensive one that offers a tiny group rate discount. Two nights at a hotel can easily be $500 if not more. Between travel expenses, hotel, gift, meals I have to buy during the wedding weekend, etc., I'm lucky if the whole thing doesn't cost $1k.

The counter argument I've heard is that the wedding couple is essentially buying me several hundred dollars worth of free food. I think that's a pretty cynical way of looking at it, as if it's some kind of transaction.

But what can you do?

P.S. I just used "personally" appropriately. You squared?
