One thing that truly annoys me is when a woman says her wedding will be the best day of her life. Really? The BEST day of your ENTIRE life. Well I don't know about them but I would hate to think that my life had peaked after only 30 short years. If that's the case what do I have left to look forward to?
Don't get me wrong, my wedding day will definitely be ONE of the best days of my life, easily top 5 I'm sure. However, it will share a space with many other days like the day I graduated from college, the day Kristian proposed, and the day(s) that our kid(s) are born. And if we're ever lucky enough to finally win that Mega Millions lottery I'm sure that will be a pretty damn good day.
I just feel it puts too much pressure on a bride to try to convince her that her wedding should be the best day of her life. It makes any of those tiny hiccups and mis-haps that may happen all the more upsetting because they have the potential to ruin the BEST day of your life!
Another issue that irritates the shit out of me is when women say that they want their wedding to be the best wedding their guests have ever been too. I will say right now my wedding will probably not be the best wedding most of my guests have ever been to. Do I hope it's a beautiful, fun wedding that my guests have a kickass time at? Absolutely. Am I striving to make it the best? Not really. I would seriously hope their own wedding would be considered the best wedding they've ever been to. With that said I would be pretty freaking bummed if our wedding was the worst wedding they've been too but I don't think that will be the case.
I really believe that brides need to have more realistic expectations about their big days. Your wedding day is an amazing, wonderful, joyous occasion but if you are putting all your happiness eggs into your wedding basket you could end up disappointed or suffering from a bad case of post-wedding depression.
