    Posted: 3/09/2006 at 2:03pm

My FI's sister always has something "interesting" to say about our wedding and today was no different.  I wanted to start a thread for the most random things that friends and family say about the wedding.  I know I can't be the only one who knows people who just don't think before they speak.

Last time they spoke, about a month ago her gem was "now are you SURE O is the right one for you?"  Nearly a year after he proposed.  Mind you I've spent a total of 5 hours with her!

Today, she asked FI, "are you guys still getting married?"  Um, hello, the whole family's flights are booked, our website is clearly up and I send out monthly wedding updates!  FI was like, um, YEAH, what would give you the impression that we weren't.   She had no reason, she was "just checking."

Any other interesting comments out there?

Aw, cripes - ya' just gotta love family, eh?

My fave: when I moved to Spain to be with FI, I'd call my mom about every 3 months to say "hi" and let her know I hadn't been kidnapped and dragged to a foreign land. Anyway, she'd start off our conversation with the usual pleasantries and then say: "So, how's....um, uh..." (long pause) and I'd go, "Mother - his name is 'THOMAS' " and she'd say, "Oh yes - Thomas...well dear, there have been so many" and then she'd do this fakey laugh. I about came UNGLUED!!! It's a good thing I was 9,000 miles away from where they lived.... we don't talk anymore, but I'm sure if she called, she *STILL* wouldn't remember FI's name. And I've been with him for more than 4 year now!

I haven't gotten any random comments about if we are still getting married, or forgetting FI's name....

But my mother is driving me nuts....since I am being particular or having a hard time with deciding on some things, she has told me NUMEROUS times that it won't matter what I decide on b/c on the wedding day I still won't be happy.  HELLO!  The first time she said it, I went off on her....but she still continues to say it any time I second guess something. 

Also, she has told me several times that I better just relax that day and be sure to eat (I'm hypoglycemic and do get really bad mood swings if my blood sugar drops) or else I'm going to end up being a real b*tch on the wedding day.

Uh, gee.....thanks MOM!

I'm in a similar situation as dizzy_girl when it comes to my mom. I'm very detail oriented, and she's just the opposite, so she gets really annoyed when she thinks I'm being too particular about things. She hasn't gone as far as telling me I won't be happy with anything on my wedding day, but she did once say to me, "You're doing EVERYTHING wrong!"

My mom had been talking with my family about FI and my wedding.  She was telling everyone how happy she was about everything.  A little while after this happened, my aunt kinda cornered her and said "so how do you REALLY feel???"  When my mom told her that she meant every word  she said, my aunt again asked her "Yes, but how do you REALLY feel????What kind of question is that???  My mom is still really upset that she would ask something like that.

totally opposite for me! it's not WHAT my my mom says but what she DOESN'T say! she so emotionless! i swear, everything i show her just takes a look at it and says "nice". when i came out in my gown, and my sister, my BMs and I were all teary eyed that i'd found "the one" she said.. "It's nice"!! Even when I called to her to tell her I got engaged!!! all i got was " Wow. That's nice."

ooh, and one time i was talking to my FSIL about studying abroad and how hard it was to be away from FI (we weren't engaged when i went to study abroad) and she says to me: "Yeah. I'm surprised you guys stayed together, i was sure you'd break up."

Mars, your comment from your mom about you getting engaged sounds
similar to FI's mom's response. She said "oh, can I get back to watching 60
minutes?"

Reading this thread is making me feel better and better about my own
ever-so-challenging mother.

itsmars it was the same for me!! My parents are so emotionless but I guess I should of expected that. They've always been like that since I was a kid. Very old fashion from the old world!! My FI still gives me trouble about it because when we told my dad, he got straight to business about the particulars of our Chinese culture but there was no congratulations just "ok thats good" geez!! and I was practically in tears i was so happy!
