Lol, my hubby said the same thing about them!  When I first said how much I loved pintucked linens he was like, "They look messed up!"  After he saw the whole idea together he changed what he said and thought they looked "sick." 🙂

When we were looking at bands (music) online I said "oh well this one has tuxes included in their package" and he says "well that doesnt matter since everyone will be wearing polo shirts and khaki shorts anyway"

Umm… not so much at our Country Club/Golf Resort EVENING wedding!!!!!

Got totally crushed when he realized that I was kidding about having a Pirate -Themed wedding.

  • Wedding: September 2010 - Heinz Chapel Ceremony, Museum Reception

He was shocked and dismayed to realize that I expected him to go with me to see the top contenders for potential reception venues, then asked if there was a complimentary Xbox for grooms to play while the bride looked around.

Since we’re having a morning wedding I was complaining because none of our local salons are open early enough for me to get my hair done. My FH’s solution? Just go in the night before and have it done then! He was dead serious. I still laugh everytime I think about it… sometimes I wonder about his logic.

So, it’s not exactly wedding related, but I decided I wanted to grow out my bangs some so I could style them sideways.  I wanted to decide before the weedding which style I liked best.  After a few weeks of the growing process, I asked my FI if he liked my bangs better longer or shorter.  He studied my face for a moment and then asked, "What are bangs?"

Hahahaaha that is fantastic Soon2BeMarsC!

 My guy suggested renting children to fulfill flower girl and ring bearer roles (we have no super young relatives)

He also suggested having a legit Bollywood concert 1. he’s NORWEGIAN, which is hilarious enough and 2. he naively claimed that it would only cost a couple thousand dollars. Yeah, honey, probably more like a couple hundred thousand! Hehehe, he’s so silly 🙂

Well It is between the following, maybe not knee slappers but thought I would contribute as well.

#1) Does not want me to book the venue/site for our garden wedding as he states, we can have it in out "future back yard" of the home he plans to buy in the near future.I added that I really did not wish to do so and that  we need to plan.  I stated that I really wanted a gazeebo or arch and that the cost to rent of tables, chairs and a tent would add up. His reply, seriosly " we will just get in good with a local church and borrow all the items" Not!! He is 100% serious and we argue about this a bit, also said he has a whole year! Does not get that it has to be booked! So on the invitation’s I could just put, location future backyard?

#2) He does not want to wear a vest or any color (thus black and white) and a flower. His idea a bow tie and cumberbun-not certain of spelling of that? So sorta like rain man meets Forest Gump.

#3) I plan to have a flower girl and a ring bearer, he thinks we should make (his nephew) a flower boy!

#4) Not necessarily funny yet suggested I have his sister whom I have never met, and is really close to his mom (which is as warm as a iceburg, adn the personality of a rock) be one of my BM. The woman whom upon first meeting her, and going right to work cooking and cleaning the whole lovely weekend, told me I was using the wrong attatchment on her carpet.

At our couples shower I opened up our new crock pot, you know, the Rival 7-person crock pot. His reaction, that he said loud enough for people to hear, "Oh, that will be good for dip!"

Hahaha, we still laugh about that.

ha! these are all too funny! This isn’t exactly something my FH did but when we were in Miami (his hometown) 2 weeks ago, we mentioned to one of his friends (not the sharpest tool in the shed) that we were getting engagement pictures taken the next day.  Friend’s response: "Wait, what? Aren’t you already engaged? You’re proposing again with a photographer??" HA! boys have no idea about these things…
