From monsters-in-law to demanding distant relatives, these people share the worst wedding guests they have ever had.
She Wanted The Couple To Share A Room On Their Wedding Night!
26) I had a small wedding and our budget included putting all 16 attendees (ourselves included) up in the bed & breakfast that we held our ceremony/dinner in. The day of the wedding, my mother tried to pressure my husband and I into switching from the honeymoon suite into the room she and my father were in with my kid sister (small bed, crowded, and a creepy mini bed in the closet for my kid sister).
Unless I misunderstood her, we would have also have to share the room with my kid sister on our wedding night (because of the spare bed being in that room). She ONLY asked because she thought that the whirlpool bath in our room would be nice for her back.
I told her no, that we had specific plans for the bathtub that night, and she dropped it.”
Weddings Are Stressful Enough WITHOUT These Crazy Demands…
27) “My mother begged me to not invite my grandparents (her parents) at my wedding because it would ‘ruin her special day.'”–
28) “My husband, our wedding party, and I had just sat down at our table to eat since we had been taking pictures. I didn’t know this happened until after the wedding, but my aunt went up to my mom and began tearing into her. Apparently, my aunt was saying she deserved a seat at our table since she helped us with the reception and that they needed to figure something out and pull a chair up for her. One of my mom’s friends diffused the situation thankfully. My aunt has been drinking at this point too but it made me realize never to accept anything from her again since now I know she will hold stuff over us like that.”–
29) “The number of people who thought they were entitled to come see me in my dressing room was astounding. Everyone thinks that they’re special because they know the bride, but guess what, at least half of the guests at this wedding know the bride. Unless you are immediate family or part of the bridal party, you can wait with everyone else. We had experience from previous weddings with people wanting to come into the dressing room and knew to try and head people off before they could get in, but I still had one coworker slip in while my maid of honor was trying to close the door. So not only did she come into my changing room (this is literally where we change clothes, get the heck out), but she also stayed way too long and wanted to get pictures. I let her take a picture to try to get her to leave, but specifically told her that she could only send it to another coworker who couldn’t make it to the wedding and she absolutely could not post it online.”–
30) “My husband and I set our wedding date as November 19, 2013, and like a week later Disney said they are premiering the movie Frozen at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. And we lived in Hollywood at the time. We had die-hard Disney fans as friends. About six people asked us to move the date so they can see the premier instead of our wedding.”–
31) “We had a guest who said he did not need a plus one, so we didn’t plan one for him. When we received his RSVP he requested two meals, so we figured he was bringing a date, no big deal. Nope, he actually wanted two for himself, at $150 a plate.”–
“She Fought To Invite 50 People To A Wedding Of 20 Guests”
32) “My mother-in-law demanded that we invite more than 50 distant family members of hers that we hadn’t met. We politely told her no, we can’t afford it. She pushed it a couple more times throughout the months coming up to the wedding. We both said no, everything was finalized and we simply don’t want them there considering it was a very small wedding of 20 people.
I thought she finally understood because she stopped harassing us about it. But then she changed her request two weeks before the wedding.
‘Okay, scrap the 50 people, but my overseas cousins’ daughters’ family of five want to come.’
No, Joan. No. It’s too close to the wedding, RSVP’s were in two months ago, we have never met them, and I already said no.
She dropped the issue, cue sigh of relief. I couldn’t deal with her pushy crap anymore. The issue was out of my head by my wedding day, and I almost didn’t see that random 14-year-old kid who my husband and I definitely did NOT invite.
