My MR suggested a “Tron Laser Glow in The Dark” wedding with a light saber battle. 

He asked if our officiant would wear a Darth Vader costume and if I would put glow sticks on my wedding dress.

Oh, and he asked why brides had to wear white – because its “boring”.   ๐Ÿ˜›

@mandypop: LOL omg could you imagine??  Although I would probably like to go to that wedding.

My Fiance has decided that he would like to do a choreographed dance number with our bridal party and basically put on a big production….this does not appeal to me in the slightest.  He’s not the greatest dancer and what he had in mind just made me laugh uncontrollably.

My Fiance is pretty traditional. If anything he has to put up with my ideas (like I told him I refuse to be introduced as “Mrs John Smith”, I don’t want a bridal waltz or father/daughter annce, I wont be wearing white)… nothing too crazy yet lol

I had a boyfriend once who dreamt of an “all white wedding,”  I had this vision of him dressed up in a white suit, looking like an ice cream man.

If anything, my fiance’s ideas are less ridiculous than mine.  He does want to have Rock Band at the reception, but that’s not really that ridiculous.  I don’t really think either of our ideas are that ridiculous, but his are more traditional than mine, for the most part.  

I wanted a very small wedding ceremony with no bridal party followed by dinner reception at a local restaurant.  I wanted to do this on a Friday evening instead of a Saturday.  Now, we are doing a much bigger wedding with a bridal party and more traditional reception.  And all of this is at my fiance’s request.  

I don’t mind, though.  Even if it isn’t exactly what I envisioned, I love him and want the wedding to be a reflection of what both of us want.  I am getting my way on some other things that are important to me.  Compromise is important for the marriage, so might as well start with the wedding.  ๐Ÿ™‚

He wants plaid to be incorporated somehow as a wedding “color.” and does not seem to care that it is a pattern not a color! I’m assuming that this is a non-serious request….

@mandypop: Your comment reminds me of a wedding I went to recently, in which the officiant was dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow.  It was seriously the best wedding ceremony I’ve ever witnessed as a guest.  It was in the Keys, and the groomsmen all rode in on a boat with Captain Jack standing right in front.  It was great.  And he stayed in character the entire time.  The wedding was decorated beautifully since the bride’s cousins were wedding planners, so it wasn’t like the whole wedding was a theme or cheesy or anything like that.  It was the second marriage for both of them, so I think that they wanted to lighten it up a bit.

As for my wedding planning, I was definitely the one thinking up the ‘crazy’ ideas, not my husband.  I had no idea he was so traditional until we started planning the wedding.  I managed to get a few things that weren’t ‘by the book’, but it was very hard with him and his family.  It’s so funny what wedding planning brings out in people…

I’m definitely the one with the crazy ideas.

“Honey, I want to wear a black dress…”

“Yes dear.”

“…and walk down the aisle to the Imperial March from Star Wars!”

“Yes dear.”

“Oh, can we do a short ceremony in the reception venue and immediately start partying instead?!”

“Whatever you want dear.”

Basically he just thinks of out of budget things and suggests taking out loans to pay for it all. he already spent half of our budget on the wedding bands (e-ring not included).

LOLL! This is a really cute thread! My FI’s most ridiculous ideas are trying to get me to spend as little as possible on my must-haves!

HIM: Do we REALLY have to spend that much on decor and photography?

ME: *blink-blank stare* Is that a real question?

Lmaooo! His only request was that our sweetheart table consists of us sitting on thrones…then he sends me this picture…LMAOO! Pretty over the top right? I’m still debating on whether I’ll give him his sole request
