I asked my BMs to post hairstyles they liked to my pinboard, and one of my friends posted something comically bad. I was pretty sure it was a joke, since we’re usually on the same page about this sort of thing, but I sent it to FI asking if he thought it would be appropriate to respond in faux-horror, or if there was any chance she was being serious and I would hurt her feelings. Without missing a beat, he goes,
“Its not my place, but the girls will look a lot better with wavy looking hair
and not updos.”
…did my fiance just say “updo”? I swear I haven’t even talked to him about hair yet. Does this mean he has been sitting around thinking “hm, the bridesmaids’ hair, how would that look best?”
Seriously, two years ago this man couldn’t buy a pair of shoes for himself.

My fi has taken interested in the weirdest things, wedding-wise.
He wanted a certain type of cufflinks.. he demanded a cigar bar! He’s super opinionated about our food & a dj. He also really wants a limo.. which I find so strange for a guy!

@jdhall89: lol cute. I can’t even remember anything funny my husband say. I remember being mad at him because he hates taking photos and when we were doing our wedding photos, he just kept asking if we could go back inside and join the party. No, we cannot!!! We must take photos on our wedding day. Jeez.

@jdhall89: lmao. Mine is clueless. Like, “how much could a photographer cost, like $500?”

FI “doesn’t like sleeves” of any kind on wedding dresses. Nor does he like beading, or as he calls it, “that sparkly crap.”

My DH insisted on coming bridesmaid’s dress shopping. He vetoed three dresses. At the time, drove me crazy but looking back is really funny. Especially considering the man thought wearing brown head to toe was an acceptable look three years ago.

@crr219191: Haha it sounds like we’re marrying similar guys! Except instead of head-to-toe brown, it was zip-off nylon pants and man sandals.

@jdhall89: Lol! That is adorable!
Funnily enough, FI does have some strong opinions about my hair. He really likes that it is long and he enjoys playing with it. I mentioned once that I was considering having my hair up for our wedding and he flat out told me he thought it would look better down or half-up.
And I’ve shown him my favorite wedding dresses on the David’s Bridal website. He definitely has favorites when it comes to those too. Lol!
Oh, and he really wants a Photobooth. I use the Knot for the budget app and he asked me to add a slot specifically for the Photobooth.

@jdhall89: My husband is VERY frugal. (He’s a Finance Director, so it’s in his blood, I suppose!) He watched our budget like a hawk! Two days before the wedding, he wanted to upgrade the bar to premium, adding around $500 to our total bill. I was shocked!

Haha, my guys is also not fashion conscious – at all. He LOVES crocs but I’ve basically forbidden them (with good reason, am I right?). He said that the other day, he was pondering, what if there were NICE crocs? Maybe THOSE would be ok to wear…
So he googled “Nice crocs” and google’s auto-fill-in completed the phrase as “said no one ever”. LOL! Shot down by google’s fashion advice. (Way to go, google).
