There’s nothing wrong with wanting a classic, elegant look. Have you asked him if there are any particular themes’ he’d like incorporated? (Just to add a touch of his personality through your vision – for example, if he could suggest a particular flower or colour he’d like to see amidst the cream) x

Eh…. no I think you are just a normal person who wants an elegant wedding. lol.

You may want to try to incorporate as many of his personal suggestions as..inspirations as you can. Maybe your garter could be a little quirky, if you are having one.

I have the opposite problem. My guy is very “vanilla” and doesn’t want ANYTHING offbeat. 🙁

 

… 

Seriously though…pirate themed?? Lemme guess. He also wants someone there doing balloon animals.  =P

Tell him he can have a pirate themed bachelor party. lol

Well you could compromise? You can have the simple, romantic look you want and he gets the Jack Sparrow cake? Tongue out

You could let him have some crazy grooms cake where he could incorporate his personality. That or have a themed rehearsal dinner or something like that.

 

I’m actually a little surprised he is so opinionated, usually guys don’t care about that kind of thing too much. My FI just tells me to do whatever I want, I kind of wish he had an opinion 😛

I think letting him have his own themed grooms cake is a great suggestion!

I am also very into the classic simple look.  We decided on black/white/red for our wedding but I want it mainly white with splashes of black and red whereas FI would like everything to be mainly red.  He has said that I get the final decision tho, and I agree that classic still looks good in photos years later.

I sometimes feel boring next to FI, he has such an outgoing personality whereas everything for me is more black and white but I guess its true opposites attract!

@TinyTina: Did you have an engagement party?  What did you do for that?
