I am having a destination wedding in December. At this point we are trying to coordinate all of our guests rooms and flights so we can meet our minimum room requirement. I was having a conversation with my FI about his mom, dad, and two younger brother’s room. They want to stay in a “standard” room to save money. A standard room at Disney is two double beds and not a ton of extra space. His two younger brothers are close to 6 feet tall and one weighs upwards of 300lbs so I questioned their room choice. I mentioned that there are family suites available if they would like more space.
My FI’s response… Well I figure that if the standard room wasn’t big enough for them one of my brothers could sleep in the extra bed in our room. I couldn’t say “are you f’in kidding me!” quick enough, I think it came out more like “areia09u834j1i kdidng me!” I love my FI and he is always thinking about the most practical solution, we have an extra bed = extra room for someone else. But hello!! we will be brand spanking new newlyweds. I was so pissed at first but now I can’t stop laughing, thinking about my FI thinking having his 20 year old brother in-law in the bed next to us on our wedding night is perfectly fine! LoL – Not happening!
Please feel free to share your “OMG I can’t believe you suggested/said that” moments, good, bad, ugly, or hilarious.

@sizzi09: Youch, I probably would have had something snarky to say to my FI if he said that, too.
The only thing I can think of is that my FI doesn’t want to have chairs at the ceremony because we have to pay to rent garden chairs. Like, he just wants everyone to kind of awkwardly stand near us. And to make it worse, we have some mobility-impaired, ill, and elderly people attending who will definitely need chairs.

HA! I would have been pissed, too.
“Hey honey, as much as I’d like to have non-stop sex with you on our honeymoon, I told my brother he could sleep in the next bed. …Hey, what are you doing with that hot frying pan….AHHHHH!”

wow id be upset too! my FI has said PLENTY of them..but the one that hits me in the head right now is..he told me to invite his mom to my bachorlette party
brief back story- when he still lived with her- she loved me ( even paid for a trip for us!) when he moved in with me- HATED ME cuz i took her baby from her, she tried to even break us up!!.. when we got engaged- DEALS with me, cuz she knows im not going anywhere and he told her to get over it he loves me an thats final
so why in %RA^SGYASU &^&* would i have her go out with me & MY friends!!!!

ew I’d flip – sounds like something my FI would say! That’s why they make cots! The boys can suck it up or they can get their own room!

@sizzi09: Brother in the same room as the newlyweds? Escuse me? I would definitely say something like you did! It would probably come out a whole lot clearer than yours though! LOL

I got mad at my brother because he said, “So, how many blowup beds are you planning to buy to host people for the wedding?” What now?! We have a hotel room block and I cannot host anyone for the wedding (logistically and for my emotional sanity). What made me upset was that he wasn’t asking if I was planning to host people, or offering to help, or anything, he just assumed I would be and acted like I was a bridezilla for not doing that.
And actually, I am hosting a family member who is coming into town a few days before everyone else, but once it gets closer to the wedding, everyone can stay in the nice, conveniently located and super cheap hotel rooms that we booked.

OMG wow. My FI didn’t even want our family at the same hotel as us. We’ll be at Port Orleans Riverside and they will all be over at All-Star movies.
Since we have an Escape wedding, we don’t have a minimum room requirement. If you are having trouble meeting yours, you should check out http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=55 the Dis Wedding and Honeymoon Forum. You can find people there who will be there at the same time as your wedding and get them to sign onto your room block and get credit for it.

We haven’t had too many of those moments, but my FI did mention that he plans on spending a LOT of time removing my garter. hahaha!! how embarrassing!!!!

Hahah wow that’s bad! And hilarious!
My favorite moment was our misunderstanding around our honeymoon. We want to go to Yosemite and I was thinking we’d stay at a hotel in/near Yosemite. I thought this was obvious so I never mentioned it to my FI. Recently he mentioned CAMPING in Yosemite so I was like what? Camping? Turned out he wants to CAMP for our honeymoon. No. No no no no NO! We will be staying in a hotel!

This is a great thread!
The other day FMIL told me.. “Guess what I’m going to have at your ceremony?“
This kind of confused me because so-far I have planned everything for our entire wedding and have asked for no one elses input except for FI. And we are keeping it that way.
So she continues to say.. “Well instead of having everyone throw rice during your exit I’m bringing birdseed!!”
At this point I was a little upset, thinking… 1. Why does she think she is in charge of anything at our ceremony?? 2. If she wants to throw bird seed at the rehearsal dinner she’s planning, then fine with me, but not at our ceremony where we are having a military sword arch for our exit. 3. Was she not going to tell me and just show up with this stuff on our wedding day?
I told her nicely “Oh, we are having the sword arch for our exit from the church.”
And she says, “Yes, I know.. but after that we will all be throwing bird seed.”
I quickly said no, that no one will be throwing anything and that FI and I only wanted the sword arch for our exit.
During the whole conversation I was just kind of thinking wtf?! No thanks, I don’t feel like being pelted in the face with birdseed on my wedding day (I mentioned this to FI and he agreed).
I think what bothers me most is that she didn’t ask “Would it be ok if I brought birdseed for everyone to throw” NO, she said it so matter-of-factly like it’s her wedding and this is what she’s planning. … ok end of vent! 🙂

@Ms.GoodEarth: Haha I just laughed at loud reading your post! Sounds like something my dad would say.
@CactusFlower: What’s a military sword arch?

@anemonie: lol, yes chairs are probably a good idea
@shalynnmarie: I don’t blame you. I like my FMIL but I still wouldn’t feel comfortable bring her along to the bachelorette party!
@Fairy Penguin: We have a room block too $97 a night with tax included, that is pretty dirt cheap considering its disney and the week before christmas.
@rosworms: Ooo another Disney bride 🙂 We are staying at the All Star Music Resort for most of the time and then a night at the Animal Kingdom Resort. Luckily we’re really close to meeting our contracted room nights, disney has some language written into the contract that makes a couple signup for, say, 65 nights but then you can release 20% of the rooms three months before your wedding day, which we plan to do if we don’t meet the 65 nights.
@Ms.GoodEarth: I love camping, but definietly not for the honeymoon! lol
@CactusFlower: Oh no, all I can think about when you mentioned bird seed is it all getting stuck in your hair. I went to a Guatemalan wedding where the tradition is to throw beans and rice at the bride and groom for good luck and the poor things were pulling rice from their hair all night and into the next day when she took her hair out of the updo. and p.s. my FI is in the military as well 🙂 Thank you and yours for your service 🙂

@MsVoyageur: HA! That’s so funny. When I told my mom she said, “Oh my god, you are marrying your father”.
This is a military arch – they are awesome!

My wedding is a very vintage, antique wedding and we have been saving a lot of little vintage trinkets to lay at the tables with the centerpieces. I was explaining the vintage trinkets to my FMIL and the next day I get an email from her that says, “I found something ‘vintage” for you to deplay at the wedding- my old christening dress. I’m sure you can put it somewhere to hang around the ceremony” Uhhh…since when did trinkets turn into clothing? LOL…I just wrote back Thanks but no thanks, no clothing items will be displayed.
