It’s his wedding too.  Let him pick something even if its way out there.  When you see it on your wedding day, it will probably make you smile (laugh to yourself).  Its like when I was little and was mortified when my dad did my hair once.  Now I catch myself laughing at random times thinking of my lopsided pigtails.

I gave up on the idea of a PERFECT wedding.  I can’t wait until stuff happens at the wedding!  It’s going to be my personal blooper reel.  Remember that you will still be just as married at the end of the day.  You will always be your FH Queen.  What more could you ask for?

Just give him a budget, and a LITTLE direction for the holders.  Set him loose.  Go with what he picks no matter what.

I also think it looks fine the way it is, cube name holder included!  Its pink, which matches with your paper.  I would see your point if say, it were orange, but it looks like it matches to me.  Anyway, I highly doubt guests will even notice what kind of name holder you’re using…they’ll be more into the food and talking to each other than scrutinizing if all the decor matches.

It is pretty hard to tell in in the picture – the pinks look pretty much the same.  Of course, colors on computer monitor…  whatever.  I’m sure you can tell much better in person.

Will you have other things on the table?  (flowers, petals, favor boxes)  Or will you have colored linens?  You might see if putting some more color around the base changes your opinion – it might draw your eye away from the box a little more.

Guys are funny – my FI either really, really feels strongly about a detail, or doesn’t think it matters at all.  I know that some of the things I am obsessing about (just lately, favor boxes) seem like a no never mind to him.  (Sure, that looks great!  Just pick one already!) 

And I love the font!! It’s a little gothic, but really, isn’t a lot of England a little gothic?

can you wrap something around the pink block to hide it?  like a black cloth/tissue paper and tie it together around the wire part with pink/white ribbon to match your scheme?  perhaps that defeats your fiance’s whole saving $$ idea, but it might come out better in the end than starting over.

Paper’s cheap, spray paint’s cheap, and it seems like a DIY project pretty much anyone could be trusted with if your groom’s so inclined. Depending on what material the pink thingy’s made from you might need to sand it a bit first. 

If he hates it and can be bothered to change it (or new stand thingies could be bought cheaply) I’d let him change it. There’s not much point matching the paper signs on tables to your invitations/name cards anyway – they could match the linens or some other accent if you’re worried about matching?
