angry_scientist: I partially blame wedding planners.
CapeFearCadaver: If I find someone I actually want to spend the rest of my life with... I've got a cabin in the mountains, a friend who lives near there who is an ordained minister, would probably buy a couple kegs of hobgoblin or something and cook the food myself. Family & close friends. Easy peasy.
BrynnMacFlynn: ... Okay, wives of Fark, be honest, is it really necessary to be a complete biatch? Do you wish you'd been a bridezilla if only a little? Did it really ruin your entire life to not control every little detail of the wedding?/important because I'm hoping and hoping that the boyfriend will propose soon
the_rev: Jake, for the love of god, boy... run like hell.
JohnnyCanuck: I'm willing to bet jake is a d-bag who deserves the hell he is in for.
kroonermanblack: I'm having a violent seizure as I type this; but, if you throw aside the 'I was raised in the very best trailer park' vibe from grammar, spelling, and general vocabulary, it reads like the woman is simply spelling out saying specifically, hey, I love you, but here are my rules. I'll still love you, you can still come, but I want the wedding party to go a certain way and if you can't do this due to time, money, or interest, then it's better that we all part now rather than make each other mad.
Hack Patooey: When she was planning her 'amazing' wedding, she got angrier and angrier that less than 10% of the people she invited said they'd come (including ALL of us at work) because the wedding was being held at some castle in France they had visited on vacation.

Summer Glau's Love Slave: Bride sounds fat./Dear Jake,//Run.///Run until your feet bleed, bandage them, run some more.////Repeat.
mindaroth: I just don't get weddings, period. They make no sense to me. I mean, okay, I'm not religious, so I don't need the sermon and vows and stuff anyway. I just can't identify with anyone who feels like a wedding is necessary. If you want one, fine, but nobody NEEDS one. I had a party with some kegs and some BBQ, and spent a few minutes in a fancy white dress to please my parents and make sure they had pictures of the "special day" (the dress was amazing, but it was a friend's dress from her wedding). I don't feel like I am missing out on anything.Women who have had weddings of any size, why was it important to you? Legit question, not asking to snark.
kiwimoogle84: blatz514: Well, I guess this broad wouldn't have liked the idea my friends did. We all, bridesmaids and groomsmen, wore purple chuck taylors.*high five*My reasoning was that I wouldn't wear heels- lots of grass and he was only an inch taller. Plus, we'd get the groomsmen to wear black shoes they wouldn't complain about, and the chicks could dance. Loved it!
xiola: Too Pretty For Prison: Free advice for young Fark guys. If a woman expects you to put up with this shiat for her "special day" - just don't. This crap doesn't magically end on your wedding day. She'll want the perfect honeymoon, the perfect house, the perfect car, your undivided attention for every trivial thing in her life and it will never end. First wedding? I played this game and within 4 years we were divorced. I simply couldn't take it. My second marriage? We jumped a plane to vegas, got married in street clothes, and spent our honeymoon being tourists in the Grand Canyon and floating down a river. That was 18 years ago. I love her more today than I did then.THIS.I had almost the same experience. without the vegas and grand canyon. Marriage is an outdated institution.
Magorn: I was a groomsman in a wedding, featured on the TLC show "Who's Wedding is it anyway?" That was an Orthodox jewish ceremony with a pirate theme that took place on the deck of the Mooshalu (old Tall ship in Philly harbor that's now a restuarant) and was officiated by probably the only Rabbi in the world who was fluent in Gaelic and Hebrew (she was marrying an Irishman). It was the single most elaborate wedding I've ever been to, (the rehersal dinner took over a Morroccan restuarant and featured an internationally famous belly dancer) and as a close freind of bride and groom I was involved from the very beggining, and the couple still made maybe 1/10th of the demands on me that this "woman" is asking of her friends
ChuDogg: She's probably from fairfield county. All the girls are like this there. They all grew up rich and affluent while getting to party in NYC anytime they want.
thepostess: I also think the groom should run like Hades, but he is likely just as douchey as this twunt./good goodly

Propose to him.co-sign.Also, break out of the wedding industrial complex; it only exists to give you an inferiority complex and take your money!!! Go to Vegas, or just the local courthouse and get it over with. *shrug* that's what I did. Proposed to my fella, bought my own ring, bought my own cocktail 'wedding' dress (wasn't even white), headed to the court house, got a friend to take some photos of us at the zoo, had an awesome Brazilian steak dinner with our friends and family, got absolutely BAKED and sauced at the after party./there's a reason our wedding was on 4/20......
Ooshatielf: Huh, for my bridesmaids I told them to pick one of 4 dresses we decided on, wear the same shoes ( on sale for 20 bucks! ) and show up to the rehearsal and the wedding.That much effort for a wedding must be exhausting.
cherryl taggart: First marriage, large church wedding, pleased the parents of both parties, crashed and burned. Second marriage, had a cocktail party, waited until 20 minutes after announced start time, then stood up and said, "welcome to our wedding." JP did the honors, and we're still at it 20+ years later.
Wollffeey: Oh well, I'm positive everyone is going to have a good time and even though I'll be a nervous wreck on the day of, and that I'll still enjoy myself and I'm not going to sweat the small stuff even if things don't go exactly as planned.
blatz514: /always a groomsmen, never a groom.
vonapathy: honey, you're not ready to get married.
