What have you lied to a bride about?

The response often used when people point out something is a bad idea is, "Well no one has told me it's a bad idea!"

I'm sure we've all lied to the bride about something so as not to spoil her fun.  What have you lied about?

    I was lied to as a bride: my dad stepped on my bustle and ripped it off, but everyone kept insisting it wasn't ripped, as if I wouldn't figure out that the million safety pins they kept using to bustle it weren't the things holding it up.  And as if I would get mad about it!

    I'd love to be the cake cutter at your wedding!

    Your website is amazing.

    The BM dresses are adorable.

    Oh no, I LOVE shower games.

    That it was ok for her mom to come to the bachelorette party

    That I was ok wrangling her family the day of and driving them all over creation

    That hot gluing ribbons around the caps of bubble bottles and writing T+S on the side made them beautiful and special and i didn't mind at all helping her "decorate" them while her FI sat around with no shirt on (morbidly obese with a large star wars mural on his back) playing video games and her FMIL sat out on the balcony smoking in her tshirt and undies.

    That it was ok to invite people just to the reception. None of those people showed up anyway.

    That I liked her husband.


    Yes, this is all the same bride and i was a replacement BM

    I must say I'm a little afraid of being lied to. I don't mind being told I have a bad idea, honest! I would far prefer someone tell me now than have aunts make snarky comments at Christmas dinner for the next 20 years.

    "You're right, this dress does look as nice in orange as it did in blue", which led to: "Yes, orange and yellow is a totally unique color scheme that I've never ever heard of anybody else doing in the entire history of weddings"

    "You're right, your DJ is insane for thinking you need to cut down the time on Josh Groban's "When You Say You Love Me". Even though you're only going to stand in one place swaying back and forth, it's your first dance, why shouldn't it be 5 minutes long?"

    "Oh, it's fine that you bought me uncomfortable shoes that I will never wear again to match everybody else and called it my gift, even though 2 months ago you told me to buy whatever I wanted and I'm now past even the store-credit return date. It's not like every dime I've made at my second job this summer has been sunk into being in your awful wedding"

    "No, it's ok, we'll spend another $30 on a top hat for DH that he can't wear during the ceremony and won't wear during the reception, just so you can get a few cute pics of the GMs during cocktail hour"

    "Oh, I'm so glad you're not mad. Yes, I'm very lucky that you're not a bridezilla who would flip out over something so petty. I'm so glad you just made me flush $75 down the toilet for something you don't give sh!t about". (This was after I chipped one of my nails during the RD just hours after the BP mandatory mani-pedi session that I spent $75 on. When she saw what happened, she gave me this "Oh you're so lucky I don't actually care what your nails look like" speech.)

    ... I lied to my BSC friend when I was in her wedding a lot.

    Stina and Brooke, what is it with dads and stepping on bustles?

    When my neighbor got married, her dad stepped on hers during the father/daughter dance and ripped the whole thing out. Nobody had safety pins or anything, so she spent the rest of the night just carrying her train around.

    Neither of my dads did, but FIL did. I got lucky, though, it only ripped out 1 or 2 loops, so I was only a tad lopsided ... I knew the second he did it, but since it wasn't interfering with anything, I didn't want to bother anybody about it.

    My poor dad felt so terrible I didn't even get upset about it.  And after about a half-dozen attempts by various BMs, female relatives, and wedding guests to try to fix it, I just gave up and started carrying the train around all night.  Irony: I didn't even want the train on the dress to begin with!

    From tonight's wedding:

    "No, of course it's not a problem that the only dish was fish!"
    "Of course we don't mind sitting around for an hour before the wedding!"

    RIP Dr. Irving Fishman - 10/1/19-7/25/10 - thank you for holding on for me.

    I went along with my SIL forcing us BMs to wear flip flops during their evening autumn wedding ceremony. Our gowns cost well over $200 each. The flip flops were our gift. As far as she's concerned, it was a wholly unique idea and we were thrilled to go along with her laid-back style.
