Wedding Etiquette Forum

Y'all have turned me into a snob.

I've been meeting with DOC candidates (lack of a better term) for my wedding. I started a new job which includes a 35min commute one way and man, I just don't feel like handling everything anymore. So I met with my final DOC meeting today and man. Whew. BOY HOWDY. This is how one part of our meeting went:

DOC: "So, are you familiar with the various roles of your bridal party?"
Me: "Wear a dress they're probably never going to wear again, smile and be sober. Ish." 
DOC: "No no. That's not what your bridal party is for. Your bridal party is there for YOU."
*hands over ungodly list of ridiculous job descriptions of every person in bridal party. INCLUDING CHILDREN.*
*I look over this ridiculous packet of information, aghast in my own mind*
Me: "Okay, well that's nice."
Read: YOU'RE FIRED. 

No wonder new brides think their bridal party is a "Fetch this, bitch!" crew. I just can't, in good conscious, perpetuate her BS by giving her my money.

Re: Y'all have turned me into a snob.

  • As the DOC, isn't all that stuff her job?
    Lord knows what I'd be paying her for. Apparently to chat with vendors?

    No. No thank you. I'm not afraid of my vendors.

  • There have always been social secretaries and special events planners amongst the wealthy and political elite.

    But the proliferation of wedding planners and self appointed etiquette experts, many of whom learned everything that they know from the idiot box, does entertain me . Which is all most of them are good for.

  • Wtf is a child supposed to do other than show up wearing a dress, walk down an aisle, smile in pictures and be sober-ish (kidding, of course)???
  • I rather think this makes her the snob, not you, since you don't agree with her.

    I mean, ugh, how dare you have to lift a single finger for your own wedding. You're supposed to have people for that.

  • Reminds me of my DOC who said, when we asked her who will be responsible for turning on the music to start the bridal procession:

    "I don't do music. That's a great job for one of your trusted guests."

    And I've already paid for the bitch. God dammit.

    Oh it's not that hard to figure out what was on the list.

    This is the same BS that TK, Wedding Wire, Wedding Bee, Martha Stewart, Brides Magazine, etc. perpetuates.

    Oh my fuck. She pulled it from Lauren Conrad. Here. She's definitely not hired. And it is like VERBATIUM what is on that website.

  • Hahaha I like LC's clothes, but I have gotten into arguments on that site in the comments section about BM duties and guests wearing white.

    We are trying to plan a game for a lingerie shower that will include people from their 20's to 70's. We would like it to be tasteful but not corny because of the grandparents that will be in attendance. Any ideas ladies.

    ... Why would you invite grandparents?!

    We had a poster here a few weeks ago saying that she wanted to know how to tactfully put on her bridal shower invites her cup size/lingerie size etc. We told her that's not for a bridal shower but rather a bachelorette party and even if she doesn't feel uncomfortable unwrapping bras and crotchless panties in front of her grandma, her guests might feel terribly awkward.

    And then she proceeded to flip the fuck out and call us prudes.

    Ahahhaha cause God forbid she make her guests feel comfortable. That's for the prudish and uptight folks. No etiquette needed for 2015! Nothing to see here.

    Yup, if there's on word to describe us, it's definitely prudes.

    That's almost as good as the poster who said we were just brown nosers!
