So my FI hasn’t put much input into the final desicions of the wedding, I’d be lucky if he had a preference.
But when it came to our first dance, he said, “This is something, I need to think about. It’s upbeat and not sappy but a summary of us.” (insert my whoa!)
Fast forward a few days, and he says, “You know, I’d like to think our first dance should be dean martin(‘s) that a kick song”
And, you know… Its perfect.
It is the sweetest thing he has asked the whole wedding process… and it was worth the wait for imput.
What groom/bride/partner request has melted your heart and reminded you of exaclty why you chose them?

My FI said he did, but i dont remember him getting down on one knee. All i really remember is zone out …ring … its happening … wow …and then he was standing up in front of me.
So one day his idea was to get on one knee when he places the wedding ring on my finger … that was sweet, unique and thats why i love him

When my SO told me that he wants to thank my family (during his speech) in my language so he is now learning how to say this in Swedish. It’s especially sweet as he doesn’t know more than a few words in Swedish before yhis so it’s a hard task, and he also does not like to be centre of attention so it’s a reql step out of his comfort zone just to show respect to me and my family. So sweet!

@mrsbordoni: Awesome post!
My FH also chose our first dance song (Into the Mystic — Van Morrison; it played in the car on our first date when we went out for a drive), and has signed us up for private ballroom dancing lessons (his idea — not mine).

@leecy87: That is really sweet and unique!
OP, my FI has planned our entire elopement. My dad is ill, so I haven’t been as “into it” as I may have been otherwise. He is taking care of all the details and still letting me have input. It’s been great!

MY FI also choose the first dance song (cheek to cheek Frank Sinatra). He also re-wrote our wedding website after my first attempt at it as I’m not very good with words and hence it was just very practical and boring after my attemot – he made it funny, sweet and romantic.
Similarly he’s helped pick the readings. One I have refused to actually have read at the weding as I don’t think my family would like it, but it’s very us and so we’ve decided to include it as text in the programmes. Not sure it will go down well on the Bee, but this is the reading he picked out – bear in mind that neither of us have good experiences of marriage from our parents and hence neither of us really ever expected to got married ourselves until we started seeing each other.
“To Diego and Frida” (Tina Modotti’s toast) from the movie Frida
I don’t believe in marriage. No, I really don’t. Let me be clear about that. I think at worst it’s a hostile political act, a way for small-minded men to keep women in the house and out of the way, wrapped up in the guise of tradition and conservative religious nonsense. At best, it’s a happy delusion – these two people who truly love each other and have no idea how truly miserable they’re about to make each other. But, but, when two people know that, and they decide with eyes wide open to face each other and get married anyway, then I don’t think it’s conservative or delusional. I think it’s radical and courageous and very romantic.
Ooh and he also wrote me a poem when we started dating which we are going to be using in the ceremony.
