To have gone to a wedding that didn't involve a drama?

So DH and I attended a wedding recently.

It was lovely.

There was no drama.

the bride almost didn't invite a close relative but it was resolved beforehand

We enjoyed everything, stayed at the hotel, didn't encounter a hitch, all was lovely.

AIBUto feel a bit pissed off that there was no outrage to report?

I feel deprived. This isn't good enough.

I never encounter the exciting Wedding dramas that abound on MN.

I am disappointed.

Haha sounds shit grin

Surely you can find something to bitch be offended about?

Have a heart! What will MN do without a bit of wedding outrage?

Fantastic! smile YANBU.

YANBU to be pissed off at the lack of drama but YABVU to not have started a fight or shagged the groom.

Honestly, some people have no idea of modern wedding etiquette grin

Reported. Obviously a troll.

My wedding was drama free. The next day my aunt complained about the prawns.
You can always find something.

I can honestly say I've never attended a wedding when anything happened.

My friend's dad did attempt a drunken striptease on the dance floor but about five of us stopped him before he'd done anything more than undo a shirt button.

My friend the groom thanked us profusely the rest of the night.

But mostly weddings are just deathly dull, often with an accompaniment of dubious music.

Ours was quite uneventful. Apparently SIL stormed off and disappeared for an hour during the night reception as her brother (my DH) was not paying her enough attention but I did not find that out till afterwards.

You obviously move in the wrong circles. I can't think of a wedding without at least one punch up, I thought it was all part of the ritual? confused

Don't panic yet - all is not lost, there's still the thorny issue of thank you cards surely grin

Oh come on, think now.... surely the bride's new MIL tried to upstage her with a white outfit or something? Young child screamed during ceremony and her parents did nothing? Best man told lewd jokes as part of his speech? There must gave been something!

I attend many weddings per year (wedding photographer) I can say the majority go ahead without any drama. There have been a few where we get told stuff happened after we left when we see the couple again to deliver photos.

Mine was quite drama free as well.
The only mildly exciting thing was that my StepMIL complained to my face within earshot of both my FIL (her Dh) and my MIL that she found it hard to deal with the day because it was a reminder of FIL's first family, luckily nobody cared about her feelings on the matter and I just sipped my wine and changed the topic.

Oh and it was my friends first night out as a couple after having two DC is quick succession, so she forgot her pre-baby alcohol tolerance wouldn't therefore be her current tolerance and had to be taken home. I didn't notice at the time but again, I think no-one cared.

Mumsnet hates weddings.

They are outrageously selfish affairs where loved ones have the audacity to ask friends and family to celebrate their marriage. People may even have to travel and buy a small gift shock

Glad you enjoyed it OP wink

I've been to about 40 over the years and there's only been one punch-up and one mass case of food poisoning. All the rest have gone smoothly. Never heard anyone say they are offended by evening only invitations, poems requesting honeymoon contributions etc either.

MissBattleaxe Sat 16-Apr-16 08:30:19

I think the bride and groom have been very selfish to sent their thank you cards out yet.

Couldn't you have made something up like most of the other wedding threads
My MIL threw up at my wedding but fortunately everybody just ignored her attention seeking. grin
Yes MN hates weddings they're an example of 'entitled' behaviour whatever that is.
