So far, I have to say my FI has been amazingly helpful dealing with vendors, super hands-on in the planning process. We’ve really only had 1 moment where we completely disagreed.
He felt rather strongly that one of my bridemaids could surely find a dress in their closet they already owned and the others could just buy a similar dress, no problem! LOL wtf? I should point out that we are having a semi-formal evening wedding.
hahah I’m still laughing about this.
what are some of the funny ideas your FI s have had?

Mine thought that it would be perfectly acceptable to have a backyard wedding…BBQ or clam-bake style…..WAIT FOT IT……………w/ a slip n’ slide….
seriously….and then he asks me why we can’t do it

MrsJKH2be- that would qualify as the MOST AWESOME WEDDING EVER! But I can see why it might not exactly match your vision 😉

Haha a slip n’slide..well the funny thing is that what I thought were ‘funny and crazy’ ideas our our reception I ended up giving in and that’s what we’re doing. MY FI comes from a beautiful big farm in vermont…but I would have never considered having the reception in is backyard where there are still the smells of the farm. Over the years I have completely gotten used to it and I realized that people would too and it’s most affordable. PLUS we’re going to have corn hole boards set up during the cocktail hour so people can play games.

Well I do agree it would be fun, but it just didn’t go w/ my other ideas :o) and I would have caught a lot of sh*t from my family! So he’s getting a pig roast for our Jack n’ Jill and he got to choose the honeymoon – fair right? hahhaa

Ok, well this is not my fiance’s idea, but I thought I’d share. I saw a wedding TV show once and the couple was having their wedding in October. Well, the groom thought it would be cool to have jack-o-lanterns as centerpieces. So he bought a bunch of pumpkins and started carving faces on them, lol. It took him a few days. he didn’t tell his fiance because he wanted to surprise her, and when he did, she just laughed at him, and said “Uh, no way in hell are we using those as centerpieces.” Lol.

@AmberEyes – awww I feel kind of bad about the jack o’lantern centerpieces. I’m sure they looked hillarious, but it’s cute that he wanted to surprise her!

Slip n slide…hahahahahhahahaha how funny!
So get this, FI’s Best Man is very shy and not the best public speaker. We were talking about speeches and I randomly said something about funnel cakes and FI chimed in with “Let ******* make funnel cakes at the reception and he can tell his speech to each individual who comes to get a funnel cake!” He thought it was brilliant, and the best man was totally down with the idea. But I put a damper on that by vetoing funnel cakes!
On a side note and NWR, after I told FI that BBQ sauce was basically ketchup and brown sugar he came up with the idea to just make brown sugar chicken nuggets and eliminate the extra pack of BBQ sauce, I could just dip it ketchup and get the same taste!

He wants to wear some ridiculous outfit at our formal wedding and he wanted the bridesmaids to carry a single rose (not ridiculous but different). He has good intentions lol

I ordered one of those VS BRIDE tank tops right? with the little blue bow on the back on the outside by the tag right? Okay so it came in the mail the other day and he said, ‘OH are you going to wear that under your dress for your something blue??” God bless his heart! I said no hun my dress is strapless! ( So im picturing in my head with this cotton bride tank top on w/ my wedding dress LOL Gotta love him!!
*Oh and he was playing XBOX when I showed him the tank top clearly he wasnt paying attention!!!

my FH wanted to have a potluck reception!!!!!! Nope, no way would I agree to that. Can you imagine the crazy mixtures of food we would have ended up with. And what would the invitations say all are welcome…..if you bring a dish???

My FI has an appropriate sense of style, I wouldn’t call him stylish, but what he wears is usually acceptable…
Our colors are cobalt blue, orange, yellow, and lime green. He thought it would be cool to find hand-painted floral ties for the groomsmen. WHAT?

My FI jokes a lot about having a tux made out of a sweat suit. 🙂 He is a silly man.

This isn’t so much silly as something that surprised me. My fiance is fixated on us having Chiavari chairs. I’ve explained to him the price difference between Chiavari chairs & nice wooden folding chairs. And, we’ve gone over that Chiavari chairs might be too formal for our rustic casual wedding. Yea, he’s not buying it! Whenever we go to wedding events or are watching events on TV or if I am showing him inspiration pictures, he always points out when he sees Chiavari chairs. Sigh!

Mine mentioned it might be “cute” for him and his brothers and cousins to do a Jackson 5 performance rendition at the ceremony.
I just nodded and said ……”interesting”……
