Miss Wellies' latest post:

"Lastly, I wasn’t crazy about having our reception just feet away from our  ceremony. The idea of passing tables and chairs as I walked down the aisle  didn’t fit with the romantic image I had in my head."

The husband and the best man did not get all pissy and defensive at first. They seem to have handled the situation gracefully. The best man's wife got pissy and defensive after she found out about the scolding her husband received from the OP and now the OP is all pissy and defensive about that even though she essentially did the same thing. 

 

If my SO was doing coke all the time I would be upset. But one night, when someone else paid for it? I don't care. I would definitely be way more pissed about being blown off.

Oh and this thread, seriously? I can't believe the sister-in-law's behavior:

I just don't understand her hangups about having a wedding with actual friends and family there. People will come to see you get married whether is a wednesday, saturday night, or sunday  sangryangry

I'm kind of surprised by Blue Whale's comment, because aren't the Blogger Bees are supposed to have each others backs like some kind of puppies + glitter sisterhood? I can totally understand BW's confusion, there is no reception. NEWS FLASH MISS WELLIES, THERE IS NO RECEPTION. YOU ARE ELOPING!!!  

I thought she was a little odd wanting to elope and having a full color scheme, but a complete venue and reception too??  Next she'll be saying "well, after renting out the venue I decided what was next on my list was to tackle DIY invites for my photographers!"  confuused

"After deciding to elope, I needed to come up with a creative way to tell the women who would have been my bridesmaids that they weren't going to be my bridesmaids. I had glitter-filled wellies delivered to their homes with an acrostic poem that provided scavenger hunt clues. After the girls rounded up all the answers, they would know we were eloping!"

On the upside, she seems like such a weirdo the ceremony would probably be horrendous?  At least the guests get to enjoy the food & booze.

Miss Wellies doesn't want friends or family but is content to sit down to dinner with the photographers and videographer? Something about her reminds me the Bee who had the Disney Princess bridesmaid dress fiasco.

I really want to comment on the "Gatsby" thread that a great element to add to a Gatsby themed wedding would be a dead body in the highway, but I don't think that would be well-received.

Haha I had a comment moderated on Style Me Pretty and got a b***hy email from their social media rep back in the spring when they were posting all of those Gatsby themed weddings. My comment was something like "Nothing says romance like a book about adultery and manslaughter"….apparently that is not the "tone" they go for.

sfun_deadhorse, I know, but isn't the very meaning of the word "reception" something along the lines of…receiving guests. Like, if you don't have people there, then it's just dinner.

 

I can see "eloping" or whatever Miss W's situation is with a photographer – you still want pictures – but two photographers AND two videographers? That's so far from intimate. What are they going to do while Mr & Mrs W are eating at their OMGbarn? Just stand there and watch them? Soooo strange.

Hahaha you should frame that. I don't get why people glamorize that book (or the Kennedys on a completely unrelated note). Have people not read the book? Are they not aware of what the message of the work was? If you want to have a 1920s themed wedding, go for it, but I always cringe when I hear people talk about their Gatsby themed wedding.

Yep, a reception means to receive guests. I think she said in comments that they're going to eat dinner with the film/photo crew who I'm sure are lovely people but, really?

Had I been one of Ms. Wellie's former bridesmaids, I would have been completely annoyed by a glitter-filled scavenger hunt. They probably got off easy, though. This girl overthinks everything.

I am loving how she got called out on having a 'reception' by some blogger bees. And then she got all prissy by saying reception isn't the right word. No duh.

In another bee's post she even commented on having a cake tasting and a first dance. Seriously. She's planning this elaborate wedding for herself and four strangers. I guess it doesn't make any difference to me if she wants to do all of this, but it grates me how she keeps using the word elopement. Like others have said, she might as well invite her close family. If they come, wonderful. If they don't, that's also fine. At least she tried. Cause right now she is faced with all the stress of planning a wedding with nome of the reward (i.e. spending a day with your friends and family celebrating your union, and hello, gifts). Just elope to the courthouse or some tropical island and save yourself the bother.

Besides the amusement from her 'elopement' she is one of the most boring bloggers ever. Right up there with Miss Bicycle and Miss Road Trip. Yawn boring
