So I’ve been reading some funny posts about what our SO or FH didn’t know about weddings. Please share your story!
One night we’re watching Platnium Weddings on WE and the rehearsal dinner comes on. He says “Wait they have to rehearse the dinner too???” At first I thought he was joking…no he was serious…..

My FI didn’t know that the bride’s parents paid for the wedding. He also didn’t know that you couldn’t see eachother the day of!

Mine was married briefly before and STILL doesn’t know ‘anything’ about weddings. I sure hope when the day comes, he realizes how much work I really did put into everything and how wonderful it turned out.

HOW TO PROPERLY FILL OUT A RESPONSE CARD!!!!!!!

What our response cards looked like.
I left our first RSVP out for him to open. He said, “It’s addressed to you.” I said, I know, but you can open it. He is confused and says, “Why?” And holds it like it’s going to explode. I say, “Just open it!” So he does. He looks at it and says, “It’s a card from Mr and Mrs Steve Whitney.” OH MY GOD!!!
Yes dear, that’s our first RSVP. “Oh, I like the envelope and this sticker label thing. It’s very nice.”
Um…you helped stack them..but ok. Oy!

My FI didn’t know what cake toppers were. I was looking at some pictures online and the conversation essentially went like this:
“What are those??”
“They’re cake toppers.”
“What’s a cake topper??”
“Uh…they go on top of cakes….”

My FI had NO IDEA what things cost! He thought we could get a photographer who was amazing for like $500.

My FI is totally blown away by the cost of things too. I think once I got him over the initial shock of the cost of renting a hall everything else was a little easier to accept.

LOL @leilafl, I think FI and I had EXACTLY the same conversation… then he followed it with, what do we need that for?
Why do we? Except that its cute and pretty! Is there another reasoning behind them?

That the wedding colours would affect what he chose to wear!

@effinjess: Yeah, FI actually reached a point where he thought $300 was a bargain fr something haha!

Add my FI to the list of men that have NO clue how much weddings cost. We’re not even having an extravagant wedding by any means but at one point he was like …
“Can’t we just tell everyone to go to the park and just do it there?”
“Um… even if we DID do that, we’d have to reserve it, pay a fee, and rent chairs…”
“What the hell! WHY would we have to reserve a PARK? It’s public property.”
“That’s exactly why. So we don’t show up and find another 3 weddings at the park!”

Ha. Mine still thinksa that a couple of our friends will be able to take good pictures. And I quote: “It won’t look any different from a professional’s pictures!”
