Oh yes, every heavy metal song there ever was.  And…. hi-tops for the groomsmen.   Did I mention he is over 50? I kinda love that he is a kid at heart, but I don’t want to walk down the aisle to Led Zepplin.

Fiance semi-seriously suggested using a system of fiberoptics to install “twinkles” in our centrepieces. The centrepieces will not be twinkling, needless to say. 

He also suggested a 7 course dinner that recreates a selection of our favourite dishes that we’ve enjoyed together, each with a wine pairing. I love this idea, but maybe for a very intimate group, not really practical for 120 people. 

It sounds worse than it is – he did compromise quickly on these things when we started to be practical.

I think my favorite suggestion so far has been not sending out invitations and just creating a facebook event for our wedding date… “Becuase there is an RSVP thing you know”…. HA

Oh and also not wanting to wear dress pants becuase his favorite pair of hiking pants is black and he would be way more comfortable (I made the argument that I would be more comfortable in white sparkely pajamas, he was not ammused)

Fiance: “We are going to bake our own cake”

at first, I thought he was way off. Four tier trials later and half a dozen icing batch experiements; plus a concrete and calculated plan for how this will happen…. we are makin our own moist, dense, incredible wedding cake.

 

Secretly, I think I’m the one with the farfetched, unrealistic wedding suggestions; and he’s Captain Practicality.

@globalmargaret:   I honestly laughed out loud at the sparkley pj comment!  My Fiance made a joke that he will just show up in sweat pants!!

a bounce house for the kids.

he was half-joking, but still…no way. not happening. we’re not even inviting kids unless they’re close family and no way am i shelling out extra cash to entertain them.  plus, his nieces are nephews are a lively bunch, to put it nicely (at his sister’s wedding 2 of the kids somehow wound up bleeding from their heads), and i know a bounce house is going to increase the likelihood of an injury.

My Fiance would like to scrapbook our wedding photos because professionally matted photo albums are outrageously priced and overrated. Most of her other ideas have been winners.

@globalmargaret:  My FH suggested that too. He can’t understand why people would spend money on paper. Haha.

FH asked if we could incorperate chrome into the wedding. I mean, I know this is Alabama, but come on, no. He also thinks that he should be able to wear jeans, which would be fine if we were just running to the courthouse, but since he’s so bent on getting married in a church, the jeans are a no no.

It was a joke, but when I asked Darling Husband what he thought would be a good song for our first dance, he cocked his head and then said: 

“Private Dancer. Tina Turner.” 

…Can you imagine??

He said orange and baby blue suits for him and the groomsmen (like Dumb and Dumber).  LOL I would die.

He also wants a whole pig roast over a fire.  That would be kind of cool if if we did a beach/luau reception!  But we’re going to be in a mountain ski resort, wouldn’t go too well.

I don’t like facial hair at all so my fiance keeps telling me that he is going to show up to the wedding with a mustache because he thinks it would be “cool.” Almost every day he tries to talk me into letting him have a mustache for the wedding. We are in a LDR and so we won’t really see each other until wedding time so he just might be sporting a mustache when I see him! Although he better not…
