I love my FI and he has been SUPER involved with the wedding planning; I’m a lucky gal He’s definitely put in his opinion on the wedding, but became greatly confused when I showed him pearl earrings with a small turquoise stone hanging above them:
FI: Blue earrings? Why would you want blue earrings? Nothing else is blue.
Me: You know, for the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”
Okay bees, I know no man knows much about weddings but seriously – how did he not know this one? lol I thought it was pretty standard

Thats what my FI said when I mentioned wearing blue shoes. He was like “blue isn’t a color for the wedding.” Oh, boys!

My FI didn’t know the difference between a Groomsman and a Bestman. Luckily we only have a total of 4 in our wedding party (2 on each side – 1 MOH, 1 BM, 1 Bestman, 1 GM)). He asked both to be his Bestman when he really wanted the other to be a Groomsman. I still don’t know if he’s told the one guy about being a GM not a BM.

My FI was confused that we weren’t having black flowers because “our colors are red and black”. Sigh…

@baldor1:both these guys probably don’t know the difference either…
Heck, I’m a girl and I don’t know the difference! (comes from a girl who didn’t have a wedding party at all)

@magilnyc: Haha…unrelated to weddings, but my husband told me the other day that we should plant more blue flowers next year to match the shutters and door of our house. I told him that when he can find me a blue annual other than a hydrangea to plant, then I’d do it!

My FI only knows about the “something blue” poem because of a recent Dr. Who episode, lol.

My fi didn’t know what a registry was until about a year ago. Then when it was explained to him he was like “when else do you get to register for whatever you want?!?!?!”
He thought it was amazing, haha
