People always seem to talk about the bride being happy and how the wedding is ‘more for the woman’ but has anyone else on here been surprised at just how excited their FI is about getting married?
My first post on the ‘bee was a bit of a vent as I really wanted marriage but my boyfriend of 9 years was 100% against it. Well, long story short, he did change his mind and propose but I’ve been trying not to overwhelm him too much with wedding talk or planning as I know this is a big step for him after a painful divorce from his first wife (and mother of his children).
He seems to have had a complete turn around over the last few weeks though and has been excitedly telling everyone he sees about our engagement! We’re having a DW and I’ve caught him watching videos of our venue on YouTube and he keeps texting me cute messages when I’m at work calling me ‘the future mrs hislastname’… He normally keeps his cards quite close to his chest so I wasn’t expecting this from him at all!
It’s really amazing seeing him like this after everything we went through to get to this point though… i know most threads are about the bride but anyone else also got a super excited FI?

I think we’re both equally nervous/anxious. We both hate being the center of attention, so we’re kind of dreading that. We’re both excited though! He keeps saying that he wishes he could already wear his ring.

allyfally: Totally agree. I am shy but still outgoing – FI is painfully shy when it comes to being the center of attention. He’s not an introverted person by any means but he would prefer if everyone forgot his birthday, promotions, anyhting like that. I should also mention he is the least greedy person i have EVER met. I mean comeon who deosnt like presents? Well, him. Seriously he doesnt want to register for anything because he doesnt want people to spend money on him and he doesnt want to recieve money on the wedding day. I think it’s going to take him longer to get excited because right now hes really anxious and doesnt want people to make a big deal over him. He is more of the person who likes to push things out of his mind until its here so he doesnt get stressed. He is excited but I think it will really be exciting to him once we are in June.

My fiancé is thrilled to be getting married. Just last night he told me that he was excited that we were going to meet with the priest (today), because it means that we are that much closer to getting married 🙂
