Have you lied about your wedding?

Joey, on 12/September/2019 at 08:00 Posted in WeddingWire

Have you told anyone a lie about your wedding? Maybe you fudged the truth about the capacity of your venue to explain why someone wasn't invited. Maybe you pretended you'd already chosen your invitations so your FMIL would stop sending you suggestions. Maybe you said you didn't take any pics of the dress so you could keep it secret. What white lies have you told about your wedding?

    To my family yes because they had lots of input to give and lots of NO at the same of what not is required to do. A few fibs here and there were said to get off the case even if they didn't like it.

    Others beyond family, wedding party and others would ask what is being done or arranged, the only answer was to wait and see, also if I tell you I would have to kill you for knowing. LOL.

    Just as the MOHs and the salon girls were putting the buck & buck together for us and wouldn't say much of it. I did hear lots of the games and basket ideas they were putting together though.

    Hahah... there were several little white lies that I don't intend to get into. But I completely forgot about them until this post.

    We've done this too! MOH and best man know because they're helping us choreograph but we've told them they can't say anything!

    We're telling people that we haven't chosen the wedding party yet. We're having a long engagement so we don't want to have to deal with bridesmaid drama LOL.

    What the heck? people are asking you how much you’re spending? how taboo and inappropriate! I wouldn’t even reply to those people!! If I did, it would be along the lines of “none of your dang business”!

    Yes about capacity. My cousin who I have barely had contact with for years invited herself, husband, and child.. Didn't exactly know how to say no thanks please don't come.

    LMFAO - This makes me laugh. Oh the frustrations of wedding planning.

    I have fudge pretty much my whole wedding at this point. I have told people the opposite of everything that I am planning just to answer questions that I am not even sure of yet. It seems that everyone thinks we are supposed to know EVERY SINGLE DETAIL, which is not the case at all.
    I just tell people everything is done and I don't want anyone to know the plans until the day of, that usually helps keep people off my back.

    I've definitely fudged the truth about capacity, for the simple reason that I didn't want friends/family bringing randoms as their +1.

    I haven't yet but I'm just starting to plan. Not everyone even knows we've set a date yet. I literally wear what I'm thinking on my face if I lied to anyone they would know. It isn't worth it for me.

    Ah yes, the "I'll think about it" lie. I am familiar with that one and have uttered it myself a number of times.

    We've also lied about the details of our first dance as it has a neat little twist to it that we want to be a surprise Smiley tongue

    A bit here and there regarding budget and money stuff! Smiley xd a lot of people (relatives) seem to be wayyy too interested on how much we are spending (FH and I are paying for the wedding). At times I'm not super comfortable on hashing out every small money detail

    I have definitely fudged some truths lol!

    At the very beginning an old friend that I had a pretty big falling out with a few years ago messaged me when I got engaged saying: "I'm in the bridal party/invited right?" I told her FH and I haven't figured out our wedding party yet (we had), and we didn't have room to invite her (we did).

    My hairdresser and I are keeping my hairstyle a secret from everyone - we both have photos but we've both told people we didn't.

    The biggest one is when I've gotten unsolicited advice and respond with "I'll think about it" - nope!

    We have been pretty straight up about our wedding. Aside from my family, not many people have asked about the wedding, so we didn't have to tell any white lies.

    I haven't had to tell any lies about the wedding.

    No white lies, but our families didn't know we were even getting married until 2 days beforehand.

    I've been very honest about the wedding. Although we did make it seem like we were planning on starting a family right after and at this point in our lives we want to try and save up some money before having children. So our timeline is longer than we made it seem. Oops.
