My FI shocked me by being 100% dead set against chair covers. It was the one thing he would not budge on so luckily our venue let us have chivari chairs for no charge! ( He said they freak him out haha) He hasn’t been too picky on anything else but I know he will for the cake!!

@excitedtobeMRSF: First look photos- he doesn’t want to be “cheated” of the experience of seeing his bride and her gown for the very first time as she walks down the aisle. I was surprised by his extremely strong opinion, but don’t mind at all. It’s actually a very sweet view for him to have.

@excitedtobeMRSF: He has always maintained that he doesn’t care as long as we get married. When I said ok let’s elope to Vegas, I found out he meant he didn’t care as long as it wasn’t Vegas.

Cupcakes of all things! Lol. He actually insisted that we change cupcake vendors midway through (and I must say, our new cupcake lady is amazing whereas the other one was “meh”). He’s been completely laid-back, “whatever you think is best, hon” about everything else. Who knew!
ETA: And the craft beer. But that one doesn’t surprise me. 🙂

@excitedtobeMRSF: he wants to come dress shopping. It’s not a request, he literally thinks he’s invited to come. At first I thought he was joking and a few of our friends had a good laugh about it — but he is being dead serious. Coming dress shopping is something he wants to 100% be a part of.

The lighting. He is very adamant that the lighting needs to be amazing. And also, he was very insistent that we have a sit-down dinner. I didn’t care either way. Who knew?

Music, food, his attire. That’s about it 🙂

Favors. We HAD to have favors (according to him), and he even designed them (then somehow I got stuck assembling them… Hmm…)

THE DATE! It has been his one and only request throughout the whole thing, he wanted it on the 24th of any month, because the 24th is the day we met in October 2009. I thought that was pretty cute. 🙂

- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
He was actually very into getting what he deemed to be the best officiant. I was surprised since for the most part he jokingly will tell me to get “whatever is cheapest” but he decided he was paying for the officiant and while there were much less expensive options out there he insisted on meetings with more “custom ceremony officiants” and then deciding.

@excitedtobeMRSF: My fiance is really being adimant on incorporating both of our wedding colors into each decoration. Centerpieces, bouquets, other floral arrangements. I really is quite odd that he is being that particular. LOL It helps me though!
