hahahaha!! at the wedding pics Liz!
I love the one about the groom.. my sister was late for her reception 2 hours WITH her husband - so irritating to me and my family, who's trying to keep guests entertained!!! uggghh!!

And for reals, just because the wedding is at the chapel doesn't mean you come in jeans - I SO HATE THAT!

I can just imagine how fun adnd beautiful the girls' wedding will be!

I totally remember those fish at Joyce's wedding! Great list--I would love to hear your mom's take too. I have a mental list of thank you notes I have yet to receive. I still expect them from baby showers but not when I take someone dinner. I just feel bad for the harried moms who took the time to write those. I agree that requests for cash gifts are the worst--but I draw the line at mentioning anything about registries as well.

Love this list, and the great pics. I HATE it when people wear levi's to wedding receptions. I completely agree with all of it -Anne

So, Liz.. how do you really feel about weddings!?! :) Actually i didn't read a thing I didn't agree with. I'm just glad someone finally said it all!

I'm printing this out for future reference when Sammie gets married.

I agree with each and every statement. I am sooo opposed to registries mentioned on invitations as well as invitations that ask for cash--sooo tacky!

Every girl should wear make-up on her wedding day--c'mon!!

I totally agree with you about not having to hunt down the bride and groom and previewing the DJ. Sam and I have horror stories about both.

I love the advice not to slut out the bridesmaids. I've seen this one too many times--especially when some of the poor bridesmaids are overweight. Not a good combination.

Don't get me started on thank-you notes--I at least want to know the bride received the gift!

Great post.

I like the comment about weddings not needing to be expensive...I'm printing this off to show you when Emi and Macy are going to get married.

I fully expect a sharp comment aimed at the cost of my vehicle of choice, my mountain bike habit or my voracious consumption of graham crackers.

For the Record: Liz & her mom loved both Brooke and Ashley's Wedding Receptions - Not surprising, given the Southern blood connection.

Also for the record: It was the D word - Which is not a swear word in my book - if said in the right manner. Liz taught this very same word to our small children - who are better at saying what we say than doing what we say.

Two future blog suggestions:
1. Swear word or not a swear word
2. Kids swearing...a.ka...Little Cusses

Love your subject! (I always get in through Stacey's blog)
May I add two: brides - please please please have your wedding dress fit, and by someone who KNOWS what they are doing; also our son & daughter-in-law went to a(dinner hour)wedding reception where the featured food was cheese cubes with toothpicks and pretzels in two different shapes. That was it for the hungry guests. (And no, $ was NOT an issue!)
Thanks for the venting venue!

An older couple in our ward, both on their second marriage, included the most unbelievable (and I don't mean that as a compliment) 3 stanza poem on their announcement asking for money, not gifts. Wow.

And I just giggle thinking about Bill using the D-word in the temple lobby just before your wedding... I second his request for a post on Swear Word or Not a Swear Word!

Liz said...

Ha ha...love all your comments. I have loved all your weddings, BTW. Except Bills.....

I think you could add a few of the gifts your cousin Rex and his friends take to weddings as definite NOs!
