- Wedding planning can be stressful, which is probably why one bride who’d evidently been pushed to the limit posted a long Facebook status answering a series of “ridiculous” questions about her upcoming nuptials.
- “The amount of questions I have been asked about our wedding is getting ridiculous and by people who won’t even be invited,” her post began.
- The post picked up attention on Mumsnet, a forum for parents in the United Kingdom, and it has people split.
- Some people scolded the bride for being rude, but others say they understand where she’s coming from.
Wedding planning can be stressful, which is probably why one evidently bride pushed to her limit posted a long Facebook status answering a series of “ridiculous” questions about her upcoming nuptials.
“The amount of questions I have been asked about our wedding is getting ridiculous and by people who won’t even be invited,” her post began.
The post picked up attention on Mumsnet, a forum for parents in the United Kingdom, and it has people split.
“[Am I being unreasonable] to think this is pretty rude?” the Mumsnet poster asked of the Facebook status. “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?”
“The amount of questions I have been asked about our wedding is getting ridiculous and by people who won’t even be invited,” the bride-to-be’s Facebook post began. “Before anyone else asks I am going to wear my glasses and you know what I don’t need to tell you why.”
She then responded to several other questions she’d been asked by people. “Also to answer further questions…. Yes, I am changing my name, Yes I have picked my bridesmaids (they know who they are), Yes [redacted] did pick the ring all by himself and yes it was a complete surprise,” she wrote. “No we aren’t getting married in Scotland, children will be invited but only selected ones, only Scottish people can wear kilts and yes there will be dancing.”
The bride concluded her post by telling all those who had offered her advice on planning to “kindly take your ‘helpful advice’ and stick up your a–!'”
People aren’t sure what to make of the post
Some felt the bride had crossed a line.
“Wow, that is pretty rude!” one person wrote. “Stunningly rude. Also, since when did she get to be the kilt police?” another remarked.
“I always think posts like this, esp on FB, are just attention seeking. You know the way kids seek attention and if they don’t get it positively will look for it by misbehaving,” another person commented.
“Oh my goodness. That’s one of those messages you type out and don’t send. Ouch!” a third person commented.
“Is it Princess Eugenie?” someone joked.
Others came to her defense, saying they found it relatable because wedding planning is so stressful.
“Oh I dunno – it sounds like a woman so much at the end of her tether that she’s lost any sense of what’s OK. You have to assume she’s been bombarded with annoying questions,” one person wrote.
“I could have written this on the run up to my wedding. I didn’t even care about these things. Now it is over though I find myself asking similar [questions] to people because I think they’d be hurt if I didn’t ask how it was going,” a second person said.
“Felt some sympathy with the glasses,” another chimed in.
It’s unclear what the bride’s Facebook friends had to say about the post, as the original poster said she isn’t Facebook friends with her.
But this isn’t the first instance of wedding drama making waves online. Just this week, a wedding photographer was criticized for shoving the bride’s stepmother in order to get a photo. Earlier this year, people were confused by a wedding planner’s bizarre list of “rules and regulations”, aghast when a bride didn’t understand why her African American friend didn’t want to attend her wedding at a plantation, and through ugly upset by the bride who pranked a bridesmaid by asking her to wear a $188 yellow “monstrosity.”
