my hubby made it really clear that pink was a no go no matter what. I was ok with that because I don’t like it myself, but I’ve never met a groom that was overly interested in the girls’ dresses, flowers or anything like that.  Some guys are totally ok with any colour scheme.

Maybe find images of what you do like, and what you absolutely hate, and show him both – maybe that will help get a discussion going on what he does/doesn’t like.

I guess more neutral tones – or at least not the colour pink!  Candles and vases rather than flowers as centrepieces, modern cake without frills, no cheesy music!

Include him in on the planning and you won’t have to worry about whether it is too girlie.  Most men will share their opinions if asked, unless, of course, they don’t have an opinion!

My wedding was very feminine, very romantic, and I did have pink. My husband knew from the first time he met me that I’m feminine, that I love the color pink, and I like everything to look pretty, so he was okay with everything.  I did not, however, make him wear anything pink.

One thing he said to me that I thought was so sweet was he didn’t care where, how, or when we got married, just as long as we got married.  You might find out that your fiance feels the same way…

We chose a light blue, white and gold for the color scheme. We’re also trying to adhere to an art deco theme, so everything is very geometric, which helps it to not be too girly :). Some things in weddings will be inherently feminine. I mean, what guy would even surround himself with candles or feathers IRL? I bet that as long as he’s included he won’t feel too overwhelmed :).

I’ve been trying to keep things modern and somewhat masculine. i love all the cutesy things, but FH is an army guy so when i think about like his friends coming to the reception and seeing some of the things i’ve seen on the wedding sites… yeah, i imagine he’d get some razzing (especially since i’m 7 years younger than him). anyways, i sent future hubz some inspiration boards and guess which one he picked? LOL

@elliestan:  The most feminine one? 

Great looking inspiration board!

well, we both play zombie games, and he was the one who chose the pink out of all the colors i sent him! haha… i did “bold colors vs soft” and “vintage vs modern”. we’ve settled on the bold, but i guess we’re kind of mixing vintage & modern. he suggested early 1960s spy film themed. ??? that definitely sounds masculine, but i have no idea on the execution. we don’t want it cheesy. we like mid-century modern design and things like that, so maybe we’ll lean that way. somehow. and infuse it with chinese and south american elements. >_> sure. easy…

@ginger_rogers: 😀 thanks! he definitely is – it makes me laugh when he starts to get involved in wedding planning. we live in different states so i rarely mention it when we talk so that he doesn’t get wedding overload. every time i talk to him about it though, it’s a different suggestion, it’s like we’re time traveling! “1940s… no, 1920s… no! steampunk… no! 1950s… no! early 1960s…” as long as he stays out of the 70s to 90s i’m good. he wants to tux it up either way, I know that at least!

BLACK AND WHITE WEDDINGS ARE ALWAYS SAFE WITH AN ACCENT COLOR. FOR ACCENT COLORS THINK ABOUT A CHAMPAGNE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, CREAM,RED SILVER, GOLD ORANGE, CORAL ETC….THERE ARE LOTS OF OPTIONS FOR COLORS OTHER THAN PINK.

 

GOOD LUCK!

Our wedding was not girly at all – yellow and green with brown accents

@elliestan:  Oh come on!  You mean you don’t want him in a typical ’70s tuxedo, powder blue with a ruffled shirt?  LOL!  Just kidding! I wouldn’t either!!!!

I saw a cake on a WE progam–can’t remember the name of it–but they did an awesome steampunk cake. Just incredible.  I think that whole idea is terribly romantic and edgy at the same time!!!  I think it would be fun to go to a wedding like that.
