10 Things Not to Say to a Bride on Her Wedding Day

Some of these things might seems like no-brainers but…they unfortunately are not. Since we know you’re either planning your own nuptials or have a wedding or two to attend as a guest in the coming weeks, this list will come in handy.

And while we intentionally made these responses a little snarky, we want to stress that attending the wedding of a loved one is an honor. Regardless of whether the wedding meets your taste, respect the couple enough to allow them to enjoy their big day and the life-changing, monumental occasion as peacefully as possible.

1 – Why aren’t you tossing your bouquet, jumping the broom, etc.?
Different strokes for different folks…

2 – When are you guys having babies?
Stay out of my uterus, please and thank you.

3 – Will you ask your DJ to play The Wobble, Cupid Shuffle, Electric Slide, Step in the Name of Love, etc.?
Um, no.

4 – Are we getting favors?
Maybe. But something tells me you can wait to find out the answer to this one.

5 – We almost got married at this venue but I decided on XYZ Country Club instead because I like their ballrooms better.
Thanks, I’ll sleep so much better tonight knowing that.

6 – I’m surprised Lisa isn’t one of your bridesmaids.
Let’s not have this conversation now.

7 – Did you know someone spilled champagne near the bathroom?
No, I did not. Thank you for the intel; would you please let my maid of honor, wedding planner, mom, sister or member of the venue staff know?

8 – Why didn’t I get a plus one?

9 – I thought this was an adult-only wedding. Why did Keisha get to bring her son?
See response to number six.

10 – How much is all of this costing you guys?
Blank stare.

ADDENDUM: If said bride is displaying bridezilla behavior (so lame), all bets are off.

Did we forget anything? Let us know in the comments!

    Interesting. Is #3 really a big deal?

    @Jessica – Yes. Yes, they do… ;-)

    @Monique – Is #3 really a big deal? I guess that is relative but any couple enjoying their wedding day should be able to do just that without taking song selection requests from their guests. The day goes by incredibly fast; let them enjoy it with each other as much as possible. However, Granny and Pop Pop get passes. ;-) Also, many DJs are quite sensitive about that kinda thing.
