Not about weddings, but since we’ve discussed getting married and even dates and locations by this point my SO made a comment that, “By the time I propose to you it’s going to be so anticlimactic.”

I just stared at him and said, “Nope, nope. I’m SURE you can work hard on making it awesome if that’s something you’re worried about.”

He always used to ask me why I was so stressed!   Like REALLY you have no idea.  Then near the end he was like “I see why you were so stressed now….you did a lot….good job”.  Lol. Geez

not about weddings, but SO once said that he thought he had to spend 15K on an engagment ring. I set him staright on that one, 15K I’d have to hire a body guard to go to the store!

I asked him what his wedding colours were the first time he got married and he said black and white… I just said “really? Like the flowers, invitations, everything was black and white?” and he said “I dunno, I wore black, she wore white” That made me laugh!

He also thought that a wedding can be planned in an afternoon, we can elope without a dress (um, no), and he was shocked to find out that some places are booked up until the end of 2014. He’s pretty damn clueless when it comes to weddings!

@braverbeating:  A couple hours!  Bless his heart haha!

FI has made several little comments that have raised some eyebrows, but I usually just smile sweetly and say “Well, we can talk about that…”  Then we just don’t talk about it and I think he’s forgotten about some of his ridiculous suggestions 😉  But the best was my dad.  He went out of town for a week and my mom and I decided that was our week to hit the DIY projects hard and get some other wedding related things done that we’d been putting off.  As my dad was leaving, he said to my mother “This will be great, you can relax and just do wedding stuff all week.”  My mom and I looked at each other and just rolled our eyes.  Relax?  We worked our little patooties off that week! 

Men!  They just don’t get it 🙂  But you gotta love ’em!

When we first started planning, I asked my FI what he thought were the best and worst things about the weddings he had gone to (he’s got a huge italian family and has been to tons of weddings).  His reply was the open bar for the best things, and lack of food for the worst.  When I asked him if he remembered anything else, he told me that guys only worry about open bar and food lol.

“Why can’t I wear jeans to their wedding? I wouldn’t care if people wore jeans to ours…”

Yeah… we’re going to get him some dress pants for my friends wedding and if ANYONE shows up to my wedding in jeans, I may kill them…

@braverbeating:  HA! Eyeroll indeed!

At the time we were first basically discussing, in vague terms, the idea of getting married, I once asked then-SO how long he thought, generally, couples should be together before getting engaged. He was like “4 years”. I felt my heart drop a tiiiiny bit at that, knowing that it would be awhile. We continued talking about it and it came out he thought 4 years because he thought you were only engaged for like, 3 months!!! And then the wedding just magically happened!!! So he was basically saying that he thought 4 years was a good time to get MARRIED.

I was like “nooooo I would say on average people are engaged for at least a year now!” and he goes, “Whhhaaatttt?” The best way I could explain it to him is that most places book up a year or even two in advance. He goes “oh…..”

And belieeeeve me, once you start asking him opinions on wedding stuff (which I hope is very soon!!!) he’ll be like “Wait, we have to think about that? And that? AND that other thing?!? PLUS THIS?!” He’ll get it. Ask him if he’s ever “just thrown a big party”… I bet the answer is no! lol. You should throw a HUGE fourth of july party or something and let him see all the planning that just goes into that haha!
