ME: I feel really guilty about spending so much time doing wedding stuff at work today. I need to do some work tonight to make up for it.
FI: What were you planning today?
ME: I was looking at floral arrangements.
FI: Why were you looking at flowers?
ME: We need to pick out what type of flowers we like for the wedding.
FI: I don’t get it. We are having orange flowers – can’t we just tell the florist orange?
ME: Laughing out loud.
FI: I still don’t get it.
Seriously, we are wired so differently!!! Anyone have similar stories!?

That is funny. Yeah, they have no clue! My FI didn’t have anything to do with flowers. He’s funny though. If he were into the wedding planning he’d be a groomzilla, though! He grills me on the few things that he’s allowed to be involved with. Like yesterday I was ready to send out invites and he’s all worried that we’re sending out too many or that the addresses aren’t right. I’m like… so what? It’s a good thing he’s not planning the wedding. He’d have an ulcer!

Yes, I mentioned something similar in another post. We ordered matchbooks that came back with the wrong date, color and name and he says hey matches are matches no one will notice

Me: So I have spent a lot of time looking at invitations and I want to show you the ones I like.
FI: For all I care, we could send the invitations out on brown paper bags!
(he eventually did look at invitations and pick some out 🙂

Hehe. He is good when i present a few options – he likes to be involved. But, it would never occur to him that I could spend 2 hours in a day looking at pictures of other people’s flowers!

LOL. I told my fiance I would love to be able to have orange blossoms because they were my grandmother’s wedding flowers (when she got married 60 years ago in CA) and have such a great scent. Because he is such a dear and wants me to get everything I want for our special day, he did some "research" and showed me pictures a couple days later of all these orange floral arrangements with roses and daisies and birds of paradise. I was particularly confused because he knew that orange was not one of our wedding colors.

Ha ha that’s great! Yeah, he keeps saying things that start with the phrase "can’t we just…" My answer is inevitably "no, we can’t" while trying not to laugh. Men are hilarious sometimes. ^_^ But he’s been really helpful the whole time, and went with me to meet almost all the vendors, so I can’t really complain!
