Why Does Nobody Like Me?

Hey yall, would you please donate to my wedding?   My FI and I got married last year but we want a really special white wedding and unfortunately he gambled away our savings,  so I'd really like it if you guys could pitch it because weddings are all about commitment and luuuuuv.   Also, my bridesmaids won't help me at all!  They act like they're not excited to help me plan and to help me tie ribbons around 400 boxes of plastic ornaments with our names and wedding date on them.  I know if I was a BM I'd be happy!   I threw myself a party because they were too mean to do it, and then they complained that I sent them all a bill for their share.   They won't reply to my texts but I know they love me and they better come help me.   After all, they also have to help bring food to my reception!   I mean, it is so expensive yall, even when you're rich like my daddy who has a million katillion dollars but won't give me any because he's a doucheberry who says I should work for a living instead of quitting high school to become a stripper.  He owes me that money!  Doesn't he see how hard it is?  Anyway, I plan to ask him to pay for the venue, but my BMs will make all the food.  That's a good compromise, right?   My mom agrees with my dad and she won't even wear what I told her to wear.   I also asked her to make 600 cupcakes since she won't give me the money to buy them but she said no, it is too much work!   As if her own daughter weren't worth the effort.   I swear, sometimes I feel like the whole world is just conspiring to keep me and my husband from getting married.

    As long as your BMs just have to bring the food and don't have to actually cook it, I don't see what they are complaining about Tongue out

    I think you should put out some kind of tip jar at the reception (maybe even do a dollar dance) to help pay for any unforeseen costs.

    And its a cash bar right? Open bars can getting really expensive, you cant be expected to budget for that, on second thought maybe just ask your FILs to pay for the booze?

    Yes, I'm going to have  a giant wishing well right beside the cake table, and people can toss in cash and checks.  However, do you have any tips on how to  make it really classy?   A dollar dance is an awesome idea.  I'll do that one in addition to my wishing well.

    Also, I will ask them to pay for the bar but I know they won't so it is cash bar all the way.   I was thinking of also having a small envelope on every plate to let them know how much they should pay as well.  I think that's a really discreet, classy way of letting them know how much money we want as a gift.  What do you think?

    FI also thinks we should have the DJ (who is a friend of his who has never DJ'd before) to make an annoucement that for every slice of cake, we request a donation to our honeymoon of $5.  What do you think?

    Be sure to send out cute poems to people you can't invite asking them to send a gift anyway!

    kwitherington, thank you.  That's a brilliant idea!  Basically, I'm hoping to make a profit on my wedding so you're helping.

    (Also, yes, I would not put it past some people.)

    Retread Bride, that's so amazingly creative and classy!  I love it.

    Enough financial ideas. Let's talk bridesmaids. Tell any bridesmaids who have short hair that they are required to grow their hair out so that all the bridesmaids have the exact same hairstyle. If their hair doesn't grow fast enough, they will be required to get extensions at their own expense. Naturally, those with long hair already will not be allowed to cut their hair until after your wedding. Oh, and their shoes. They all have to wear the exact same shoe, which is crazy expensive and uncomfortable, and a horrible shade of aqua satin. They just need to practice walking in those 5-inch heels well in advance of the wedding.

    I love all of these ideas!  They are just what I was looking for.  Super classy, and I especially like the wishing well. ;-)

    What about bridesmaids tattoos?
  • Options
    Personally, I think all the BM's should be required to get a matching tattoo with the bride & groom's names and date (I mean, really, this is probably one of the most memorable and important days of your BM's lives!). Any and all other tattoos will have to be professionally removed prior to the wedding... I'd hate to see that stupid cover-up make-up rub off on the brides dress!
    Praying for a miracle!

    I love the tattoo idea.  Mandi, right on.  If they have any other tats, they need to have them professionally removed before my wedding.  It is just so hard being a bride and trying to get everyone in the right frame of mind.  I am so glad you guys understand!!

    omg laughing so hard!

    But seriously, make sure not to give the guests too much food.  You don't want your dance floor empty because they're full right?  Not to mention all the $$ you save with 'mealitizers'!
