So, my SO is a huge fan of the Final Fantasy video game series. Same way I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter. So I asked if he'd like to incorporate elements from Final Fantasy into our wedding (he already wants me to walk down the aisle to the piano version of Aerith's theme- which is actually really pretty!). I was thinking something like having a Final Fantasy-inspired cocktail if we served alcohol (cause I would totally do butterbeer if I could find a recipe I liked- perfect for a fall wedding!) or something. He immidiantly asked if he could wear this:
Just curious as to how other bee's would respond to this request if your SO asked? Personally, I am a firm believer that this is his wedding too, and I think with a few small alterations it could work.
ETA: Also, if you weren't having a themed wedding, how would you incorporate bits and pieces of yours and your FI/SO's interests into your wedding?
I may be your SO's target audience, maybe not yours as I am a huge gamer.
I'd be cool with it. I'm under the impression (At least planning my own wedding) that if my SO asks for something/pipes up on something, I better damn listen 'cause it's important to him.
Also, Aeris' theme rocks. My SO has the battle victory song as his ring tone.
Well if you like it, then go for it. It sounds like it already fits with your theme. Its not really my taste. Personally, I would tell him Hell No! I tell my SO all the time; "It may be our marriage, but it's my wedding" (This is just a joke, though).
Bahaha, that's awesome. FI and I are planning to play the FF fanfare when we kiss and he's super giddy about it.
Regarding Squall's uniform, I say go for it! Just make sure to get a good quality cosplay suit, as sometimes they use cheaper fabric that tends to look dull in photos.
I love the idea of having Harry Potter and FF elements. Maybe have bottles of "Pheonix Down" feathers as decorations since they could be interpreted in either series?
I think it's a good looking suit and looking at it from a man's perspective... a wedding dress is a "costume", not a normal looking dress, so why do all the grooms have to wear a "normal" looking suit?
Make sure he knows he, his children and his grandchildren will be looking at pictures of himself in that suit for years to come. If he's still happy, then why not?
The music and cocktail ideas are great! The costume..... Not so much in my opinion. It just seems very childish to me.
The song is a good element to incorporate for him. The suit...not so much. I, personally, don't think it's the place for such a thing, even if he does like it. You could always surprise him by having an FF groom's cake. You're already allowing him the song, which is nice of you. I just really would not go with the suit.
@ForeverBirds: I'd let him do it IF IF IF that could be made with a quality fabric and not polyester.
Don't skimp on the wedding suit.
SO wants me to wear Zelda's dress.
I'm KIND OF thinking about it. If instead of a belt, the shape of the belt was done in embroidery on the skirt. same with the rest of the details, if done that way it would look like a "normal" a-line dress...
@Hyperventilate: I'm more of an, "It's our wedding" type person. So while he does have a few things that are important to him, I want us to be able to compromise rather than have an element of the wedding I hate. While I'm not a video game or FF nerd, I don't dislike the costume, and I think if it's done well it would be an interesting twist. As much as I love the idea of my SO in a well-tailored tux, he's not much of a tux guy, you know?
@SincerelyShe: Lol. We don't really have a "theme." It's more just random elements that we like that we're tossing together. The closest we wil have to a theme is wedding colors! And I think if I told my SO it was my wedding, he'd just be like, "Ok. Then you pay for it!" And then I'd be stuck cause he's the one who works while I go to school. XD
@ekizuna: I love the Phoenix Down idea- I wil definitely mention that to him as soon as I get home from school!! And the fanfare idea is really cute (probably not something I would do, but I still like it!)
@happyface: This is definitely an interesting way to put it. I'm not planning to have a traditional wedding dress, so why should he have to wear a traditional tux?
@doorstopper: He'd probably try to figure out a way to tell our grandchildren that the character of the game was actually based on him or something!
@Mrs.babycat: I really hope I'm not being snarky here, but I don't think it's anymore childish than a bride wanting to be a princess for a day. If I get to be a princess, why shouldn't he get to be a video game character? It is his day too.
@cwedding14: "Allowing him the song"? He gets just as much say in these things as I do. Yeah, I'd put a stop to anything I absolutely didn't like, but I'd hope we could both come to a compromise that would make us both happy.I'm not being nice; I'm trying to make him happy on our day and give him just as much say as I have. :) I apologize if I'm overreacting to your comment, it just sounded to me like an implication that he doesn't get any say in something unless I give it to him.
@HelleCat: We'd probably have his aunt make the suit if she makes my wedding dress, so I know we could pay for quality fabric since she wouldn't charge us for labor. But that definitely is a good point for me to keep in mind! And I'd love to see a picture of Zelda's dress! I'm curious now!
To everyone: honestly, this is probably a passing fancy of his and he'll change his mind a dozen times before we really start wedding planning, just like I will; I'm just curious about how other brides would respond.
I agree that it's his wedding too, but unless you are full out going to incorporate final fantasy as a theme, then I don't think it's appropriate attire for a wedding ceremony.
