    that vendors hear "wedding" and see $$ that people hear "wedding ", and think they're invited, even when they've never met or spoken to you (like your #5...)that mothers who never had their own wedding will try and live through yours

    that even if you didn't get stressed out about the wedding, everything around you would begin to wear you down about a month out. that people will judge/dismiss your 2nd wedding especially if they haven't met your FI (and God forbid, it is happening in Vegas......)

    Heh, my low-key Vegas wedding is still pretty expensive, though thankfully it has thus far been low-drama.I don't have anything to add, except that I now have that awful "don't you wish your girlfriend was hot like me" song stuck in my head, and I blame this thread.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    how tired I would be 12 days out from the wedding from working on the wedding to-do list that even if you are laid back about the whole thing, you will still, very likely be ready to get it over with at some point that I should stop answering my phone several weeks before the wedding because every other call will be about who is sitting where/ who isn't invited, etc...

    Ditto!  Reading all the replies certainly made me feel better knowing that I'm not the only one.  Of course, I don't know that I'd be as happy to elope but the thought has crossed our minds many times when someone starts nitpicking details that they a) aren't contributing to so why do they have a say and/or b) they aren't the one getting married so it's not their decision anyways!  Pardon my rant but I feel better!
