When you think of it, weddings are the unofficial mirror of our society where if something can go wrong, it surely will. They also bring some of the most memorable and sweet moments that are among the very few life-changing things humans have.

But saying “I do” can be as colorful as the world itself: from people hosting their wedding in the middle of Walmart or a parking lot, or a gas station, or right there in front of a dumpster, and I’m not just making that up. After all, who’re we to judge if this is what makes two lovebirds happy? And sometimes it’s not even them, it’s the guests who forwarded their wedding invitation to a bunch more uninvited guests.

So get your popcorn ready for this compilation of the most “Seriously!?” wedding moments for ensued craziness: the matrimonial edition.

No matter what your wedding may look like, it all starts with a meticulous (and for some, spontaneous) planning process. Guest list, catering menu, venue, style, dress, everything puts huge pressure on the newlyweds, so no wonder it may go astray at any time.

Bored Panda talked to Rhiann Janak, the lead wedding planner and CEO of “Lucy Till French Weddings.” Rhiann said that essentially, “If there are too many cooks in the kitchen, you'll have a hard time pleasing everyone and drama will arise.”

Instead, she suggested being aware that “when you are given money to organize your wedding, ask yourself, does this come with expectations to do parts of the wedding a certain way? Are you okay with those expectations?” In reality, only the couple knows how they want their most beautiful day to look, and they should stick to what makes them happy and not everybody else.

And in order to avoid any unnecessary drama, Rhiann recommends a simple trick: “keep the choices you make a secret until the wedding day unless you genuinely want someone's input as it may be different to yours.”

Rhiann recounted one incident about her friend who had a vegan meal in the heart of Texas, BBQ country. “Her mother-in-law spent the entire planning process stressing about the fact that people will be hungry and wearing out the phrase 'what, I can't believe there won't be any meat.'”

“But in the end, everyone, all the guests, and mother-in-law were really happy with the meal,” Rhiann said and added that “sometimes, a bit of surprise is a good thing.” You shouldn’t thoroughly adapt your wedding to the preferences of your guests, and if you take them into account, this should not overturn the things that you feel comfortable with on your wedding day.

At the same time, while planning a wedding, you could take others’ opinions into account, especially if it’s someone you have a general bond with and both you and your partner trust. This may be your parents, or other close relatives, who will surely have their opinions on how you handle the wedding planning. This is especially true if you rely on your parents’ finances, which often correlates with how much they're contributing.

On the other hand, the constructive contribution should not be confused with toxic criticism. If anyone is being harsh with your wedding (and life) choices and openly questioning whether your “I do” is right, whether your wedding is well-planned, it may cause you to lose self-esteem. Be open-minded about opinions, but remember that for some, marrying in Walmart will surely look like the craziest idea on the planet, but you may have your own reasons why such an unusual venue is the place you want to marry. And it’s totally fine.

I am staggered at the amount of people who ask for gifts, money or otherwise. I grew up with the idea that a wedding was a covenant between two people who invited those they love to come witness that promise. Gifts are not what make a wedding. Love, and the sharing of love is. I find it tacky as well as greedy to set expectations of monetary gain from a wedding.

the limitations of attendees, especially due to covid, is understandable. however, the request for money for honeymoon expenses is, in my opinion, kind of tacky. why? because a honeymoon is something that the groom and/or the bride usually plan for themselves and shouldn't be dependent on the generosity of others.

This isn't weird though. Because of corona, weddings have to be kept small and some people don't make the cut. And if you still want to give something, as a lot of people would, they ask for money instead of items from a registry. Perfectly fine and respectful this.

Aunt Messy

You NEVER ask for money on any invitation, ever. And if they can't pay for their own honeymoon, then they can't afford to get married in the first place.
