We ordered our cake a week ago and we did a 3 layer cake-1 layer marble, 2 layer white, and 3 layer carrot. My fiance loves carrot cake and he suggested we do the whole cake carrot cake. 😉
What has been your guys best wedding suggestion and his worst suggestion?
Post # 3
Best: “Let’s just get married in Vegas”
(Note: We are!!)
Worst: “Let’s just have the reception at my uncle’s house”
(Note: His uncle has had his house for sale for the last couple months and it just sold today. That would have been a great idea, LOL)

I don’t have a worst yet, but we just started. The best was our wedding reception. He helped me look for venues and even called/emailed them. He had a list of questions ready in the emails and even handled the visits. He was on it. Two of the places he found were in our top 4 list, and in the end we went with Lake Oak Meadows, which he suggested. (Good job, Sweetie.)

The man’s been helping out a lot more than I expected, and no major mishaps yet! (crossing fingers!)
He did inform me that he was planning on inviting some guy friends to his bachelor party that we weren’t planning on inviting to the wedding due to the (already too large) guest list of over 300.
Eek… I’ve been trying to inform him of wedding ‘etiquette’ more and more. Hopefully he will keep catching on..

Best: accoustic guitar for the ceremony
Worst: “can’t we just cover the tables with paper? Why do we need linen? it’s OUTSIDE!”

My FI is at a bachelor party right now. He asked one of the guys who is going if he was going to the wedding last time we saw him and the guy was like “no, they didn’t invite me” and didn’t seem to care. I don’t think most men care about that etiquette.

Best: Getting his incredibly talented, up-and-coming violinist friend to perform for the ceremony. It’s going to be amazing.
Honorable mention: Using the phrase “Spread the Love” on our homemade jelly jar favors.
Worst: He wants to put bow ties on the horses on my parents’ farm. Yes. He does.

@ mouse: haha, I would LOVE a giant cookie cake if I was a guest at a wedding. 🙂
I love this thread, and I love when groom’s have input – no matter how funny it is. My guy is actually really involved (I mean, I still do all the legwork, but he has ideas and wants to be included in decisions)
His worst suggestions:
Wearing a kilt (He technically has some Scottish in him, but I don’t think it’s enough to pull it off)
using one of those t-shirt launchers to launch boxers into a crowd of guests instead of the garter toss (this came as a joke after discussing how much I hate the garter tradition, haha, but still)
His best suggestions: an Ipod instead of a DJ (I had already read all about ipod receptions on the bee, but he had never heard of them when he came up with the idea)
having figurines of ourselves with binoculars or other adventure stuff looking towards one another across the cake buffet as our cake toppers (we have a travel/map theme and a cake buffet obviously)
I LOVE it when he’s the one to bring the wedding up first in conversation. Just the other day, completely out of the blue, he asked, “when do we need to start working on our save the dates?”

@ daniellemybelle: hahahaha oh my gosh, bowties on the horses?? Amazing. haha, I love some of the crazy stuff guys come up with.

Best (because it would be awesome) and Worst (because it is so unrealistic): tailigating before the reception.
