Sick of Entitled Brides!

As a bride who has come across so many issues during my wedding planning, paying for it all on my own, I am SO TIRED of hearing these entitled brides complain when their wedding is being paid for! Seriously, if you're parents are paying for your wedding, do NOT even complain. Like, you're all set. I do not want to see these brides posting about problems anymore. No Thank You to that!

    As I am sure you can imagine, wedding planning can be difficult......for all brides. We don't like to play the "who has it worse" card around here. Welcome to the boards. I hope these boards can help you as much as they help brides who may have different challenges than your own.

    Everyone has their own issues while planning a wedding. Just because a couple accepts money from their parents doesn't necessarily make them entitled.

    </div><div>I kind of maybe agreed with you for like a minute. Brides who have help with their weddings have problems too, and sometimes they're worse. They have to deal with parents who plan the wedding how THEY want it, and not the bride and groom. They have to deal with worrying that their parents said they'd pay and then maybe they won't...They have to worry about going over their parents' budget...</div><div>
    </div><div>My point is that they still have things to worry about and they still have problems, although different. </div><div>
    </div><div>I think I have less to worry about since we're paying for our wedding ourselves. We don't have to worry about pleasing anyone (outside of making sure everyone attending is well-hosted) and we don't have to take anyone else's opinion into consideration. </div>

  • I'm paying for everything. My financial pain doesn't lessen the emotional pain and stress of someone who's family is contributing. We're all going through the same issues.

  • Didn't come across as a joke.  How about starting over?  You could post in intro to yourself, tell us about your FI and your upcoming wedding and start fresh.

    I took your post (especially a first one, we don't know you) as dead serious.

    [QUOTE]Yeah, what a knee slapper. I remember when my friend got married; her daddy paid for the hall, but nothing inside it. He then invited 60 more people then the couple could afford, harrassed the dj and MOB, and daily called his daughter to emotionally abuse her until she was sobbing. But hey, he paid for the hall and a big fat shower with an open bar that was as much as half her entire wedding budget (against her wishes), so the chica shouldn' t have complained, amirite?  HA HA THAT WAS SO FUNNY.

  • I'll start by saying this post is pretty ridiculous.

    I'll admit, I have less sympathy for brides who have their weddings paid for by family, and then complain about the strings that come with that money. They could have refused the money.

    We all deal with different stresses planning a wedding. I'm greatful that we are paying for our own wedding, and thus, don't have to listen to unsolicited advice if we don't want to. I actually think it's LESS stressful to pay your own way, and not have to question whether I can afford something or if I need someone's approval.

    I'll add that the regs are pretty tight knit around here, and posts like this aren't going to get you a seat at the cool kid's table. I gather that this is what you're trying to accomplish.
  • who are you?  Stage, CMGR, Sparkly and Addie, amongst the other regulars, have better things to do than deal with YOUR ENTITLED BS crap. 

    i actually care about the advice they give, pay attention, and you are just a crazypants with MUD.

    harry, i have your gif as my screen saver... <3 bowie.

  • I know someone whose parents are incredibly wealthy and she had no say in anything for her first wedding, a big society thing.  She told me that if she ever gets married again the same thing will happen.  When I told her that she could just refuse her parents' money, she told me that her mother had told her flat out that she and the girl's father would boycott the wedding if they couldn't pay for it--because whatever wedding she had would still reflect on them in their social circle.  And that would lead to a huge rift in an otherwise super close extended family because people would have to pick sides.

    Mo' money, mo' problems.

  • awww it sounds like someone needs attention. and look at all of us giving it to her. to bad it back fired in her face and now we all are making fun of her when she tried to make a "joke".

  • Dude, not cool OP, my first post was kind of snarky too, and yes, I wanted to see how others responded, and I did have a few legit concerns, but when you post S---t like this, you are entering a world o' pain!
