The $50 Fine

With just two months to go until our wedding, Joe and I have hit the wall when it comes to people giving us a hard time, questioning our decisions, and making jokes about doing something embarrassing during the reception. What's funny about that? Seriously. If you must joke about the wedding, don't tell us about it. And if you do, we've established a $50 fine for giving us any trouble with the wedding plans. Every bride and groom runs into the Trying To Be Funny friend who jokes about wedding nightmares in a 'wouldn't it be funny if...' mindset, and the one universal truth is that other people don't realize how much stress there is to planning a wedding. So jokes can fall flat a lot faster. We know that people aren't trying to hurt us, but there has to be a limit to the joking input, and to other people making plans for our wedding day. $50 fines should do the trick.
