So I was talking to Fiance today and was asking his opinion on doing a first look photo session. He actually didn’t even know that traditionally the bride and groom don’t see eachother until the bride walks down the aisle.
My question is does/did your FI/husband know stuff about weddings or did you have to clue them in on a lot of things?
At this point it looks like I could make up any kind of crazy tradition and he would go along with it because he has no clue about weddings/ does not want to have to deal with any plans.

I had to clue him in on SO much! It’s a guy thing 🙂

Darling Husband was surprisingly up on the traditions even though he had only been to 2 “traditional” weddings in his life; my brother and my sisters. I guess he must have picked up on the traditions because we were so invested in my sister’s wedding.
I asked him about doing a first look and he looked at me like I was off my rocker. He was firmly against the idea because he didn’t want anything to possibly taint the moment of me walking down the aisle towards him at the ceremony. It was really sweet.

He knows that he can’t see me at all on the day of the wedding, he also nixed the first look. That’s ok though because I don’t want them either. 🙂

Mine is the opposite, he had no idea that you didn’t “have to” follow every tradition. He was sort of shocked when he heard my crazy ideas.m

No, he knew everything!
This is because Darling Husband is WAY more social than I am and had been to like, 4 times as many weddings as me 🙂

lol that is funny I thought everyone knew that. Fi did find out about the first look when we first started looking at photographers, I want one, he doesn’t so we are going to have battle it out.

I had to clue mine in. I probably shouldn’t have because now he wants to stay true to all of it, lol.

Mine insisted that one of us has to stay somewhere else the night before so that we don’t see each other at all until I walk in…..he has random traditions that he knows about and they are non-negotiable! I hope he doesn’t find out about any more!!

I was just so surprised that he he didn’t know about not seeing the bride until she walks down the aisle. I was also surprised that he did not immediately object to doing a first look photo shoot because he is pretty traditional. I don’t really want to do one myself but thought I would ask his opinion and before I even finished explaining he said I don’t care do whatever you want. Which is his typical response to wedding talk so i guest I souldn’t have been surprised.

To answer the question, shortly after engagement I asked FH what he wanted our wedding colors to be. He replied “weddings have colors?” This poor guy knows NOTHING lol.

@pierogi: Same with my FI! I would tell him the things I do not want to do, and he would sort of freak out cause he thinks we have to do everything by the book!

My Fiance is pretty much aware of traditions and the new things like the first look. We are not doing a first look but we will be doing a first touch, like him on one side of the dorr and me on the other side of the door. He was actually ok with that idea. So far he’s been pretty good.

@couawilou: I love the idea of a “first touch”. I didn’t know thats’s what it was called but I definately will be putting that on my list of pictures.

His opinions of what should and shouldn’t happen at weddings were completely based on weddings he’d previously attended, which fell to the traditional side. When I wanted to do something unique we’d get in a fight because I apparently was trying to rewrite the script.
