Happily Ever After is tough to plan. It's a miracle that any weddings happen at all, when there are hundreds of logistics to consider and the traditions of two families to integrate. Whether its because they hold the purse strings or raised the bride or groom in the first place, parents can be demanding about the direction of the festivities. Wedding guests sometimes demand more than just a free meal, and can make some strange requests for special treatment,
A recent Reddit thread asked, "Weird family requests..what is the weirdest request you have gotten during wedding planning?" It's a great case for just eloping.
I had a family friend request permission to bring her 9 month old puppy and her cat to my wedding.-DiligentPenguin16
I had a friend ask if he could hitch a ride back to our house with us after the reception and crash at our place.
Our reception was only about 15 minutes from where we all lived, in a town where Uber, Lyft, and taxis are very much a thing. He also had a lot of friends attending the wedding he could have carpooled with, but somehow, he thought of us, the couple getting married, first when it came to asking for transportation and a place to sleep. Blew my mind.-ostentia
