16 Married People On Their Wedding Guests' Most Obnoxious Requests

How about no?

MOST POPULAR

There's something about weddings. They either make people unusually emotional (guilty!) or turn them into total monsters. As the people actually getting married I'm pretty sure you have a ton of stuff to worry about. Apart from the fact you've organised this entire day, you've also probably spent loads of money. Plus, there's the added pressure that this is meant to be The Best Day of Your Life, ok?! Guests like these are the last thing you need...

1. Not the time

"As my father-in-law opened the door to walk down the aisle with my wife, one of his cousins came up from behind and asked them to stop for a picture." [via]

2. That's like, the first rule of weddings

"My dumb little cousin requested to wear a white dress (she's 17 and well on her way to being an Instagram model so people would have congratulated her all day)." [via]

3. The bride is not a sat nav

"It was the handful of guests who couldn't be bothered to retain the address and directions and needed to text me repeatedly to get clarifications on the directions instead of just using fucking Google. You know how busy a person is on their wedding day? I had more important things to do than answer texts about which exit to take." [via]

4. That's not what the photographer was hired for

"One of the bridesmaids brought her fiancé to the wedding, and wanted our photographer to do an impromptu engagement photo shoot. Photographer laughed in her face." [via]

5. Just no

"Mother-in-law asked us if we could reschedule our wedding closer to step brother's so she could come into town once for both. Our date was booked a year previously during the time of the request." [via]

6. Book the day off?

"My aunt expected us to delay the ceremony until my cousin arrived, since he had been at work. Uh no." [via]

7. What was she thinking?

"The day of the wedding, my mother tried to pressure my husband and I into switching from the honeymoon suite into the room she and my father were in with my kid sister (small bed, crowded, and a creepy mini bed in the closet for my kid sister). We would have also had to share the room with my kid sister on our wedding night. She ONLY asked because she thought that the whirlpool bath in our room would be nice for her back. I told her no, that we had specific plans for the bath tub that night, and she dropped it." [via]

8. Oh come on

"My cousin tried ordering a special meal because she was allergic to pecans. She is not allergic to pecans." [via]

9. S-E-L-F-I-S-H

"My brother's wife asked me to postpone the wedding 'a year or two' because she was going to try to get pregnant the following year. She also insisted the wedding cake be vegan for religious reasons . I was fine with providing a vegetarian meal option for the few guests I knew would want it. But the cake? No. That's your religion, not mine. She ended up not coming anyways. I'm fine with that." [via]

10. Erm, the bride has other shit to do

"My great aunt called my bride and asked her to come pick her up from the airport… four hours before the wedding. Taxis are a thing, Aunt Pearl!" [via]

11. Just think before you speak

"We made it clear that children were not invited to our wedding. I had a cousin call me two days before the wedding stating that there was no way they could come without their 3-year-old, and that we should pay for their room if we wanted them to attend. They did not attend but they did send a card we got about two months later that just said, 'Congratulations!'." [via]

12. U ok, hun?

"The mother of the bride wanted [to play] a game at the reception. The game was this: The bride sits blindfolded on a chair, while the groom and groomsmen circle around her. She then has to feel their junk and guess which one is the groom." [via]

13. Is it just me or this kinda fair enough? No?

"My husband and I set our wedding date and like a week later Disney said they [were] premiering the movie Frozen at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. And we lived in Hollywood at the time. We are Disney fans and we had die hard Disney fans as friends. About six people asked us to move the date so they could see the premier instead of our wedding." [via]


14. Do it another time dude FFS

"Younger brother asked if he could propose to his girlfriend that he had known for five months after the first dance because he 'didn't want to take any attention away from us'. I was about to say yes because that shit would have been hilarious, but didn't want to further stress out my fiancé (at that time) right before the wedding. He still fucking proposed. Thank god my wife and I have the same sense of humour." [via]

15. One word: icon

"We had a guest who said he did not need a plus one, so we didn't plan one for him. When we received his RSVP he requested two meals, so we figured he was bringing a date, NBD. Nope, he actually wanted two for himself. At [£115] a plate." [via]

16. That was never gonna happen

"My uncle's wife wanted me to pay for the makeup artist she hired to do her makeup. Ha! Sorry but no." [via]
