List Rules Vote up the most annoying questions anyone can ask a woman who is about to get married.

What are some of the worst questions to ask a bride? Weddings are stressful for everyone involved, particularly the bride. She’s often busy with endless details, from choosing the menu to making the guest list to picking out centerpieces, booking a reception hall, making seating arrangements, hiring a DJ, picking dresses for the bridesmaids, and deciding on a dress for herself. All this and more while those around her constantly badger her with questions about the wedding. It's almost one of those weird, unofficial wedding traditions.

When a couple announces their engagement, suddenly everyone is an expert on weddings, and they can’t wait to bombard the happy couple, particularly the bride, with an array of questions from the fairly painless to the highly intrusive and borderline insensitive.

If you’ve been a bride, you’re probably familiar with some of these things brides don’t want to hear. If you’ve been a bridesmaid or if you’ve attended a wedding, you might have made the mistake of asking the bride-to-be one of these questions. Either way, the next time someone you love announces her engagement, you’ll know to steer clear of these bad questions for brides.
