There are two weddings being planned in my family right now.  Mine and my sister’s.  We are getting married only a few weeks apart.  The planning has been shockingly smooth…until now.  Yes, dear friends, the high maintenance requests from attendees are starting to flow in.  I once created a fictitious list of funny things to say on a reply card.  I was such a sage…people actually DO ask for the craziest things.

This needs to be made public.  It has to stop.  "Bridezilla" is a term describing high maintenance brides, but I would venture to say certain behavior and related tantrums are DIRECTLY related to the dopey, insensitive, ridiculous, sense of entitlement issues brought up by guests.  YES, guests!  You are not perfect!!  I shall now keep a running list of such issues.  Let’s hope this is my only post on this subject…

– A reply card was returned, noting the food preference (which was solicited) for Filet.  Ever so neatly (and I might add sternly) written off to the side were two little words "Medium Rare".  Well, let me spring to action on that one and be sure to instruct the kitchen that in the midst of preparing 150 such filets THIS one is to be "Medium Rare". 

– One wedding is being held at an old club up north where there is no AC.  The offensive request went to my dear mother.  The request went as follows "be sure to put us in a room with cross-ventilation".  Yes, that too I will JUMP RIGHT ON!  I will be sure to go the club and stand in each room (90 plus rooms) and secure for you the best breeze I can muster.

Indeed.
