If my Fiance planned our wedding the colors would be red and black like his college alma mater, the ceremony would be at a courthouse and the reception might still be at a winery, but only if we could get it done for 1/5 the cost. Otherwise, he’d find a brewery or a park.  He really only cares about good food and lots of alcohol.

He would get to wear shorts and flip-flops instead of a tux.  Whatever I wore would not cost more than $200.  Oh, and there would be NO witnesses to the ceremony other than the 2 required by law.  He’s very nervous about having to get all those warm, fuzzy words out in front of all those people.

There’s a whole show about this!  It’s on the BBC America, it’s called “Don’t Tell the Bride”.  The couple is given enough money to have a nice wedding- but the bride isn’t allowed to pick out anything.  Not even her dress. Hilarity ensues, I assure you.

Beer and chicken or steak for food.

Probably courthouse wedding

Shades of navy and orange (his two favorite colors)

He would let me pick my dress because he knows I crazy I am about fashion and I would NOT walk down that aisle in a crazy dress

No fancy art gallery, no sir, it would probably be at our 700 sq apartment with everyone packed in there

An Ipod reception blaring out his favorite rock bands: Muse, Forever the Sickest, New Found Glory

I have to say , my man is pretty hands on , like he wants to put his 2 cents on everything we do ..which is fine ..but i think if it was TOTALLY up to him…

He and the men would be wearing Jeans and tshirts..lol..,                                      he could care less about the colors ,i think he would keep the blue and white ,since those are the colors of his country ,Greece…

 flowers, He would be simple roses ..there my fave’.s ..nothing fancy ..the dresses would be Simple ..the men would gte to wear jeans and tshirts ..

   Things that would matter to him would be that we definately get married in a greek church…As for food ,he’s a chef , no way would we get burgers and fries , that would be more My style ..lol..Not his .. If he could , he would cook the meal  himself  :)..and it would be fancy ..

In a strange way I think it would look really similar to what I have in mind because we talk about it so much. We have really similar taste. The main difference is that he’s not a really good bargain hunter and doesn’t obsess on wedding blogs!!!

He’s suit shopping today by himself and I totally trust him, he’s the one who is going to wear it!

steak and potatoes for dinner, with a salad with ranch dressing.

There’d be beer and wine

The attendants would just wear nice suits and he’d probably say red dresses since he knows all the chio’s already have red dresses.

it’d be very low key, to say the least. pretty sure he’d call everyone in lieu of invites haha

Actually i’d have faith in him–he managed to plan a military ball so he’s not completely uneducated about nice parties =]

Oooh I love this thread!

He’d have a reception of steak.  And more steak.  Maybe a salad and some baked potatoes all the way.  No cake.  He is not a huge dessert guy

Instead of cutting the cake, or have a wedding cake with layers of cake stacked,we’d have steaks stacked one on top of another, a steak tower with a petite filet on top which we’d have the little bride and groom figurine on top of!  

He’d wear probably his khakis and something.  Who knows.

There would be NO COLOR SCHEME except for saying that the guys can wear anything BUT pink. 

And the rule for me and the girls would be easy and simple.  Look hot.

And they’d serve on tap Fat  Tire beer.  His fave.  Maybe some Guiness for the guys.  And bourbon based drinks.

Yep.  That’s how this would go down.

We’d say our vows on a dock somewhere, then we’d jump into his kayak and paddle away.

The "steak cake" would probably look something like this.

I’d best not show it to T, for he’d want me to do something like this with my famous meatloaf I do once a week at his request!

haha I think if I left it to my guy to do all of the planning I would end up with a very nice dress…. the showed way too much boob. He’d wear a nice suit or tux… that cost as much as my dress. We’d probably get married out of the country with just my parents and his mom. We’d go to a mexican restaurant for our “reception.” There would be no dancing. hahaha.

This is why we plan πŸ™‚

Fun thread! If my husband would have planned our wedding:

Our colors would have been either black & gold (Steelers) or blue (his fave)

We would have had pizza for dinner. He handled the bar so that would have stayed the same-open bar-beer, wine, liquor.

He loved loved loved my dress so I think he would have picked something similar, though maybe shorter-above the knee.

He probably would have emailed/texted/called people to invite them to the wedding.

@The immigrant bride: Where in Quebec? That’s where my Hubby is from!

My guy relied on me for most of the stuff during the planning process, I am a good bargain hunter and very organized. But I know that if he had to do it all on his own, he would pull off a great party! Maybe the details wouldn’t have been as coordinated as they were for ours, but he is the one who planned the Ceremony (I am not religious and didn’t have much involvement in this) and talked with a lot of the vendors.

He may have forgotten a few things though, like the catering tent or directions for guests to the reception. It would have worked out though I bet!
