My boyfriend's brother got married this weekend and it was the most stressful wedding I have ever been involved in!!!!! The bride and groom had been engaged for a year and a half but had only been planning this wedding for 3 months. The bride and her mother fought over EVERYTHING. The bride had a fit if she talked about wedding stuff for more than a half hour. There were issues with the caterers, the tent people, the DJ (they wound up not having one), the father/daughter dance... EVERYTHING! The worst part of it, for me, was the lack of communication! I asked them several times if they needed help with anything and they politely refused but then the week before the wedding came and it was mass chaos trying to fit everything in! They didn't even have a Judge to do their wedding until the week before!!! The day before the wedding everyone is freaking out. People are ordering eachother around, ideas are being voiced (in the wrong way, yelling and screaming), the bride hates the decorations but won't tell anyone because she doesn't want to hurt their feelings, grandma steps in and tries to take over. The bride and groom dissappear for hours to get the stereo equipment and then come back to say everything is wrong. I was given the job of going to get the food for the rehersal dinner IN ANOTHER TOWN 30 MIN AWAY, and then while I was gone was given a job to do DURING THE WEDDING. When I return from getting the food, one of the groomsmen jumps in on my conversation with the bride about what my job is AND YELLS AT ME, sending me into tears. Then the day OF the wedding, my boyfriend dilly dallys around telling me there will be plenty of time for me to get ready after I drop him off at the grooms house. PLENTY of time he tells me. I get back to the house and have A HALF HOUR before he calls me and litterally says to me "Don't freak out, don't hurry, but we need you over here to help ASAP." Now, by this time, I am under so much stress trying to figure out what's going on without being told that I end up in tears. This wedding puts pressure on me too because, well, "we're next" (as 90% of the wedding guests tell us). I wanted to look pretty too! I wanted to show everyone that I diserved to be with my boyfriend. I know it sounds silly but I wasn't really rational at this point. Alright, I'm done with my rant. Anyone else have horrible wedding stories??? P.S. I realize there is a lot of stress involved with weddings and the bride and groom shouldn't be blamed for all of this but I also feel as though a lot of this stress could have been avoided if there was better communication amongst everyone.
