I love the random things that men choose to think about for the wedding!  Mine wasn’t too particular about anything, but felt very strongly about having a photobooth.  He went out and got PVC pipes and made one himself!

Mine wants top hats and canes for him and his guys…….I have no idea where this idea came from or why he thinks it is a good idea for our country wedding. I’ve told him if he is willing to help me make 175 favours and work on the invitations he can wear a top hat. Thank goodness that the thought of doing crafts with me for an entire Saturday scared that idea out of him 🙂

@DelilahDiamond:  FI really wanted a red carpet entry, with photographer and everything.  I immediately said no, thinking of the people that wouldn’t be comfortable being FORCED to take pictures like that.  He also wanted a photobooth during the reception which i said yes to – those are so much fun.  I may be able to placate the red carpet idea though because I’ve found a company that to make a logo-repeat backdrop (just like the red carpet backdrops) using our monogram for the photobooth I’m putting together.

These are too funny! My FI has had some pretty silly requests ,for instance, a french fry centerpeice, but none of them have been serious. Although, FI does want to play this incredibly morbid song for our first dance, which will not be happening.

Yeah.. my fi came up with some strange ones.

– He wanted to wear a top hat & cane.

– He wanted a monocle

– Cigar bar [we are doing this]

– Differant types of cakes, instead of just 1 flavor [so we are having an 8 tier cake with all types of flavors including chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, carrot & red velvet.. haven’t decided on the others yet].

– Having our men wear dresses and girls wears suits [yeah, that’s not happening]

– To start off our slow dance, and then in the middle change it to a heavy metal song and start head banging [also not happening!]

– Wedding colors, he chose black, I chose pink – so we added a filler color [white] and kept our fav colors.

– Corvette stretch limo [we are doing this]

– late night snack [we are doing this, a nacho bar]


Luckily, he doesn’t get too discouraged when I turn down some of his ideas, lol.

@DelilahDiamond:  Mine wants to do a ‘fancy kegger’ idea.  He is convinced that this will be completely klassy. 

I’ve thought about making neat pilsners as an addition to gifts (because not everyone drinks beer)…but I’m just not loving the keg idea…. Undecided

@DelilahDiamond:  I LOVE the idea of a unity cocktail! That’s genius! Especially if you can somehow mix your own signature drink with one favourite spirit from him and one from yourself. Or one mixture from you one spirit from him. That’s an adorable idea and then you can serve them at the reception for everyone to try! 

Sorry, but I’m on your FI’s side. 😛

FI wanted straight techno for music played at the reception.

There are no words.

@Everdeen:  I don’t HATE the idea of a unity cocktail…I’ve seen a lot of black and tan ceremonys….it would really take the edge off while doing your vows lol! Laughing

maybe not at the ceremony, but it could be cute at the reception

For some reason DH got really stuck on having Bells of Ireland in our centerpieces/floral arrangements.

Fortunately I think they’re pretty enough, so it wasn’t too much of an issue.

@DelilahDiamond:  I kinda like the that idea maybe not shots as they are too strong … but its a nice way to cheers and toast to a new start together and your life being whole with one another 


I mean i find the candle and sand ones kinda silly and cheese the bright coloured sand makes me think of sand art when i was a kid and the candles just seem silly to me 


the idea of mixing somthing (classy) in beautiful glasses and then cheersing to long happy life seems a little less cheesy to me more like a ritual like what you do at most celebration points in a life
