Party Bus/Limo no alcohol

Re: Party Bus/Limo no alcohol

  • @kwiksilver ;I am doing the same thing that all the other wedding I have been to and been apart of have done.

    Interpret that as you will.


    Oh boy, so because every other wedding you've been to has been hosted poorly, you feel the need to follow suit? Excellent choice. No need to go out of your way to make people not want to gossip about you. Btw, what do you think people are going to do in that gap?

  • 1) OP comes to a forum asking for strangers to solve their problem;
    2) OP gets consistent advice from random, independent strangers;
    3) advice is not what OP wanted random strangers to say
    4) OP gets very defensive and says "well I can be rude because other people are too" and alludes to "at least my husband/family/friends love me" and flounces. 
    5) OP does whatever she wants, wasting her's and everyone else's time.

    Am I missing anything?
    Where's that BINGO card when I need it?!

    @augustgirl21, please understand that there are rules that should be followed for important events like a wedding.  These rules are written down in very good etiquette guides.  My favorite is Miss Manners Guide to a Surprisingly Dignified Wedding.  It is a fun read, written with a sense of humor, but no nonsense.  I think you should read this book immediately, and it should really help you plan a proper wedding that won't upset your guests and make you look like a rude, self centered bride.
    Being Catholic is no excuse.  Catholic brides need to consult with their priests before planning anything about their wedding to avoid rude gaps.
    Just because you have seen other people do rude things at their weddings does not mean that you should do rude things at your wedding.  Please read this book.

    My fiancé gave me this advice...I knew I loved him :-)
    So your solution is to be a complete asshole to everyone? 

    If you can't see any reason to treat your guests with some common decency and good manners, you are far too selfish and immature to be getting married. Inviting guests to your wedding is not meant to be a punishment.

    I have never had Nutella, the thought of it is gross to me. . . . a Nutella jar would not make me happy.


    Sorry to @augustgirl21, her FI, and @eileenrob.

    As much as the whole world seems to love Nutella, it is one of my all-time least favorite foods.  It does not "quite" reach the level of "gag" gross, but it comes pretty close.  It is just so disgustingly sweet, I cannot stand it.

    The chocolate part of it also just tastes "off".  I normally like the taste of hazelnuts, so I don't think it's that. 

    But hey, me and @kaos16 are just that inevitable "exception to the rule", lol.  And further proof that...no, you can't make everyone happy.  Even with a Nutella jar, lol.

    No offense taken  :) my H doesn't like Nutella either! Not for everyone...

    I would be so pissed if I went to a wedding and saw someone holding a Schlafly Pale Ale and I went to order one and was told, "Sorry.  That's for the bridal party only.  You get bud light."  Gee - thanks.

    This issue came up with OP on a local board.  If I remember correctly, the justification is that people love gaps because out of towners can go back to their hotel and relax and locals can go let their dogs out.
    You have GOT to be kidding me!  Gaps are rude.  I have been to several Catholic weddings with no gaps.  It is all about proper planning.

    If you're going to do this in spite of our strongly urging you not to, don't be surprised if the party bus arrives at the reception venue to find a much smaller number of guests, perhaps none at all, awaiting you at the reception, than if you'd not gone off on a party bus at all.

    I don't get this at all. If there is no gap, then there is no need for anyone to let their dog out (in between), or for the OOT guests to relax at their hotel (relax from what? what is so taxing about a ceremony?). Guests are free to leave in the evening whenever they wish.

    @kwiksilver ;I am doing the same thing that all the other wedding I have been to and been apart of have done.

    You're obviously doing exactly as you have been advised not to. 

    Since you're going to do what you want, extend the same courtesy to them. Let them drink as much as they want on the bus, because it's the least you could do for being ridiculous and dragging them hither and yon just because you've only been to rude-ass weddings. 
    Once the ceremony is over, why do you care what anyone in your WP does?  Their roles have been fulfilled, they should now be free to enjoy the day like any other guest.

    If you're insisting on making them bus all over the world to watch you take hipster photojournalistic photos, for the love of God PLEASE make sure there is food on the bus!  After going through the getting ready together hoopla, and the ceremony, I guarantee they are going to be hungry.  And nothing gets ppl shitfaced faster than drinking on an empty stomach.

    Think about it- your Aunt is feeding your guests a lunch during your gap- that means you are planning on a substantial gap, otherwise why wouldn't everyone just go straight to cocktail hour to eat?  So your Aunt is going to spend several hours feeding your guests. . . you need to make sure you have substantial food on your party bus for your WP- a sandwich ring, cheese and crackers, options that are more substantial than chips and pretzels.

    I've been in a WP a ton of times now, in a few instances we did this party bus thing and it was great- why?  1. It was only about an hour, 2. there was actual food involved, and 3. the couple didn't care if we were drinking or not. . . in fact the point of the bus was for us to have a mobile cocktail hour while we were all traveling between the ceremony site and reception venue and taking pics.

    I can't stand Nutella, either.  It's the hazelnuts I don't care for. 

    I also hate almond flavored anything and in my area where a particular Burnt Almond Torte is a big then, I'm considered a freak.

    Bleh!
