Fiance and I had our final meeting with the DJ tonight and had a bit of a disagreement. He wants “What’s that Smell” from Lynyrd Skynyrd for the garter removal song. He was talking about like taking a deep breath before going under my dress or even putting a clothespin on his nose. I told him absolutely not, and that its embarassing. He got mad bc he thinks it will be funny and that it isnt embarassing. He says its just a joke but my problem is that its at my expense and its infront of family and friends and coworkers… I just think its almost like degrading? Idk. Am I being too sensitive? Should I just let him have his fun? I feel like there should be a happy medium where we have fun with it but he doesnt make me feel like some nasty thing that doesnt take care of her business. Ugh help bees!

No, you’re not overreacting in my book. I would be really embarrassed by this too. I know he’s probably attached to the idea but you have to put your foot down somewhere. He can find something else silly to do that isn’t at your expense.
(Also, for a little while there it said you were posting from -1 years ago. I was going to congratulate you for mastering time travel.)

@a_marie13: There is absolutely NOTHING funny about what your Fiance wants to do. It would be degrading, embarrasing, and completely inappropriate. This is your WEDDING, not a frat party.

I think I have a pretty good sense of humor but I don’t think this is funny at all. I don’t think it’s a good idea, so I’m with you!

I wouldn’t marry someone who would suggest that as an option, to be honest.
But since it seems like it’s too late for that, I definitely wouldn’t let that song choice happen.

There is no way he is serious! He has got to be messing with you. It would gross me out to hear “oohhh that smell…” while he is going under your dress.

Umm.. how in the world does he think that is funny?

I would be horrified if I witnessed this at a wedding.
If my fiance SUGGESTED this, for our wedding, I could only deduce that he had lost his damn mind.

ick…I side with you. as a guest I’d feel very awkward and embarrassed to see that stunt.

@Neetch: That seems a little harsh.
It sounds like he just wants to plan something silly/fun at your wedding. Can you find a different way for him to do this?

Yeah that’s not even a little funny.

Yeah… I can appreciate a lot of crude jokes, but this is way more icky than it is funny.
What’s funny about everyone thinking the bride has BV or something?! I’d refuse to do the garter thing at all, after that suggestion.
