Expolaris: blatz514: /always a groomsmen, never a groom.[i.ytimg.com image 480x360]Give any good speeches?
Mr_Fabulous: My fellow Farkers... marry a woman like this. Trust me. Seriously.
Lundyn: white women problems
WhippingBoy: The only thing worse than a self-entitled bride to be are the people who feel compelled to point out that "they're not like that" to all and sundry...
Mr_Fabulous: 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.My fellow Farkers... marry a woman like this. Trust me. Seriously./and if she likes sports and good music too, don't even think twice
addy2: WhippingBoy: The only thing worse than a self-entitled bride to be are the people who feel compelled to point out that "they're not like that" to all and sundry...Thank you. It was getting thick with self congratulations in here. Happens in the kid raising threads too. We can all be assh*les now and then. It's usually okay.
Too Pretty For Prison: 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.

It was getting thick with self congratulations in here. Happens in the kid raising threads too. We can all be assh*les now and then. It's usually okay.To be fair, there hasn't been a good ol' child raising or marriage thread in a while. Or I just missed all the trainwreckyness. There's a lot of self-congratulatin' humors that need to be outed apparently.
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
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.
KatjaMouse: Bridezilla? nononononono... a Bridezilla would get crushed by a b*tch like this. This is a case of a Bridethulhu.Just started planning a wedding myself. I told my sister, the only attendant I'm having, to pimp slap me anytime I get unreasonable.
Trail Mix: 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 friendsSee, that's an elaborate wedding that actually sounds like the effort put in was worth the experience.
Magorn: Yeah, the Bride in that wedding has a very special knack for doing extravagant, fantastic events without spending a ton of money or being particularly obnoxious about it (her daughter's Bat-Mitzvah was a costume party with a time travel theme held at a Philly history museum, She also went to Burning Man and ran a restuarant in a circus tent that served a different four course meal every night and served High tea in the afternoon)
BrynnMacFlynn: vonapathy: honey, you're not ready to get married.Why, because I admit that I still love the idea of being proposed to? OH NOES./sweetheart, don't be hatin'
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?
Tom_Slick: First marriage wife a bridezilla, it last 2 very long years and when she left she took my dog. Second marriage (first marriage for my second wife) low key fun at an airplane hanger, took off afterwards in her B200 for a 2 week long honeymoon flying around wherever we wanted. Best 5 years of my life until that biatch named cancer took her away from me and our 3 year old./find a low key woman and enjoy every minute of it.
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!
brigid_fitch: CSB: The ONLY issue I had was with one high-strung bridesmaid who dragged her feet throughout the year. Whined about everything, hated all the dresses and colors, complained about being expected to find a seamstress (which I ended up finding for her with 10 months to spare), and kept calling last-minute on the few times I scheduled stuff to move it to another day or time. The other bridesmaids complained that she was negative all the time, wouldn't pitch in to help them, and only showed up at stuff they planned when there was free food. The last straw was when, a week before the wedding, she informed me that she hadn't bothered to go to the seamstress and was now being charged an extra $75 rush fee. Since I had recommended the seamstress, she felt I should pay for this. I'd had it & threw her out of the wedding party. I let her know she was still invited to everything but would just not be a bridesmaid. I offered to reimburse her for the fabric (it was nice fabric--I could use it for something) and she demanded the money immediately. Told her to hit me up after the wedding--I was crazy busy, everything had been tightly budgeted, but I'd definitely pay her.In her wedding card to us, she wrote a note that instead of a wedding present, she was deducting the cost of the fabric. I don't think I spoke much to her after that. I don't need whiny AND petty in my life.
CapeFearCadaver: vonapathy: honey, you're not ready to get married.Because she wants her man to propose to her?
FatMason: Ok, so I'm not a wife, but I'm a very happy hubby to a very awesome woman. :-)Given that you're asking this question, then that tells me that being a complete biatch is not your normal disposition. It makes me sad (about the state of society in general) that anyone thinks that sort of question even needs to be asked because of being worried that it's to be expected. No, no one needs to be a complete biatch, especially about a wedding. Instead, just plan for it to be fun, and the memories and stories that you have about it later will be much better. An enjoyable wedding with good memories is a better foundation for a good marriage.
SlothB77: Anyone remember the movie City Slickers with Billy Crystal? Daniel Stern's character's, Phil, wife?
mrs.parker: After reading this thread it's clear to me that everyone so proud of Converse footwear at their weddings are part of a large and unimaginative crowd.
