So I’m going to keep the polls here anonymous as I have no idea who on here is and isn’t married and now many DiSers attended said weddings (saiddings)?
But, prompted by both the stress of saving for and arranging a wedding, and that of involvement in a few others recently, I was recently pulled up by one of my friends on what he saw as my bad attitude towards some mutual friends’ weddings and I want to work out, basically, whether I’m just a grumpy arsehole (and also get a measure for what I can get away with for my own wedding, safety wink.
First up: You’re in the wedding party. The happy couple have a very specific idea of what they want you to wear - we’re talking a bright purple waistcoat, or a specific shape of shoe, not stuff you’d necessarily have in your wardrobe. Maybe you’re a bridesmaid.
- Should be built into the wedding budget
- Perfectly acceptable to expect the groomsmen and bridesmaids to pay for their own clothes
