Just had to share my FI’s latest brilliance re: wedding planning:
Note, we are having a 30-45 person wedding
FI: Yeah, I want to invite Renee and Angela…
ME: Okay, who are they?
FI: My cousins.
ME: Okay. So… is that husband and wife?
FI: No, mother and daugther.
ME: Okay… do they live together?
ME: Okay… are either of them married?
FI: I think so. Angela is, I don’t know if Renee is…
ME: Okay, do you know Angela’s husband’s name?
FI: I don’t know… call my mom! Why don’t you just call my mom, she can tell you all this!
ME: Ummm… cus they’re your family and you’re a grown man.
JEEZ. So shocking that I need names and addresses for invitations…
What oblivious things has your FI said re: wedding planning?

Hahahahaha! That’s so awkwardly adorable of your FI. This is what I call a “puppy running on linoleum” situation.

My fi doesn’t know the addresses of his family and such.. his mom is making a list for me.
I don’t know the addresses of most of my family.. besides the one that live nearby.. our family isn’t close, so we’ll have to track those down too!

@loving_life: Mine said the exact same thing Haha! Granted he has a big family, but his parents’ siblings are pretty immediate family IMO and he should at least know their marital status. He can’t name all of his first cousins though (there are over 20) so we didn’t invite any of them.

Ha. I totally feel you. When we were working on our guest list, I filled in addresses for my side, and asked FI to do the same.
He didn’t… until his parents came to visit. And they filled it in.

@loving_life: DH thought it would only take a few months (2-3) to plan a small wedding. (he was married before and thought big wedding=long time; small wedding = short time)

This whole scene sounds like my FI and, even worse, his mom too! So he can’t even go to her for help! Lol oh the “details.”

@nearlymarriedlass: That is my question as well. But he has had so few opinions that if he wants them there, then fine by me 🙂
