AIBU to think this is pretty rude? Yes it probably is annoying when people ask questions about your engagement or wedding, but most of the time they are just making polite small talk?

When will these bridezillas realise that no-one is anywhere near as bothered about their weddings as they'd like to think.

Hopefully a year ago when this was first posted.

Don’t know her but don’t like her!
What a horror!

I wonder how many guests will show up after that post? If you don't want to deal with wedding questions then you better remove yourself from the planet because there will ALWAYS be questions.

Rude and insanely obnoxious! Who does she think she is?

KeiTeNgeNge Wed 10-Oct-18 09:54:07

The glasses question could be exciting - is she rocking massive multihued Elton John shades on her beehive updo as she struts down the aisle in her mini kilt, selected children flinging Hershey kisses as they go... grin

"So, Moira, where are you getting married?"
"Oh, how nice."

I want to know what's wrong with her glasses that everyone's asking whether she'll be wearing them on the day in the photos grin

Lol at the "selected children".

HomeMadeMadness Wed 10-Oct-18 08:54:08

Bloody hell what a rude cow! If they hadn't made small talk about her wedding it would be about the weather. She could have just said "It's going fine but I'm bored of wedding talk, how is your aunt Judy getting on?" or whatever. Does she think she's some kind of celebrity whose wedding is strangely fascinating to everyone.

MacosieAsunter Wed 10-Oct-18 08:53:36

Some people are intrusive - I absolutely loathe and abhor that line of incessant questioning.

>waves arms expansively< just wait until she gets the starting a family questions, she'll absolutely implode.

I fully empathise with her. TBH, most adults would get bored shitless being repeatedly asked the same question by 20 people daily.

Mehaveit Wed 10-Oct-18 08:52:02

What an arsehole! Imagine people asking her about a major event in her life hmm

My colleague is pregnant. I'm not the mother and I'm not going to be invited to the birth but I still asked how things were going and empathised at the sickness she'd experienced.

WasabiSpring Wed 10-Oct-18 08:44:08

Seems quite likely she's the type who would get just as pissed off if nobody asked her about the wedding at all.

thecatsthecats Wed 10-Oct-18 08:28:54

There’s really no excuse for that sort of outburst. People ask polite questions about weddings, pregnancy and children etc to be nice. Ugh.

My sister and I were talking about this. We both HATE it. Small talk is a necessary evil, but a year's worth of focused small talk is torture. Especially when it comes with the insane weight of interference that people DO show with decisions you make about weddings or babies.

Usually flippantly meant, in all fairness, but when you hear for the millionth time, I can see someone snapping fairly.

Haven't myself, but in December, when my wedding is over, I'm looking forward to being asked about my life again!

I’m loving be idea that it’s Eugenia....Duke of Edinburgh put in his place about a kilt. How dare Anne ask about glasses. Will’s three upstage me - never cries the bride.

I went to a wedding this summer where our Scottish niece was marrying a Welshman at a venue in Scotland - the groom, his family and best man all turned up in Welsh tartan kilts with Welsh dragons on their epaulettes, everyone thought it was fabulous.

1forAll74 Wed 10-Oct-18 01:20:07

Very rude I would say,,, and glad the woman has managed to find some guy to marry her, !

agnurse Wed 10-Oct-18 01:08:14

"Only selected children." I can't even.

Then again, I may be a bit biased. My dad is the youngest of four and my mum is the oldest of 10. At the time of our wedding I had over 40 cousins ranging in age from mid-50s to a year old. Plus Mum's siblings had invited my parents and all of us kids to their weddings. We couldn't just not invite the kids. Also my husband has a daughter who was 6 at the time. She and my husband's godparents' young son were in our wedding party.

Dale ugh

Maybe she’ll unwrap Dake Carnegie’s book “How to win friends and influence people” at her reception? Good luck to anyone marrying into that hot mess!

Jux Wed 10-Oct-18 00:46:02

Can't you become friends with one of her friends and then see the comments?! Surely it's worth a go!

dinosaurkisses Wed 10-Oct-18 00:43:03

Did your mate find this on the Reddit wedding planning boards? It seems like the sort of shit that some posters there think is totally reasonable.

Koalablue Wed 10-Oct-18 00:41:25

What an attention seeking gob-shite. Imagine the whining she,d do if no one cared enough fo ask about her wedding.
