…But just don’t admit it? That thought crossed my mind the other day when J said that the best time to get married was around 1 or 1:30pm in the afternoon so that the guests aren’t waiting for hours between ceremony and reception. It made me wonder if men think about details like that as much as we do. Then I thought… Well, I don’t know what I thought. I didn’t want to jump to conclusions and get excited, so I’m posting it on here to hear your views.
Men, what do you think?
Ladies, what do you think?

I think it depends on the guy. But generally speaking, I really don’t believe that men think about these things as much as women do.

Not your average guy, no. I know hubs was shocked when I was planning our wedding, he had no idea the amount of work that goes into it!

No, my FI is excited to plan a wedding but definetly does not think about it like I do.

haha NO. They do randomly care about little details you wouldn’t expect them to, but overall no way.

Well, in general I think the things men think about (wedding related) are
1) Show up on time (and mostly sober)
2) Say “yes” and the vows without stumbling over all the words
3) I hope my eyes are open in at least one photo so in 10 or so years when my memory of the day is fading, I have something to remember it by (and where my tummy is at least 20 pounds smaller)
4) Whats she wearing under that wedding dress
haha, mostly joking but I do think many men are not cognizant of those details unless their fiance brings them up.
I want my fiance to have the best wedding possible, but her and her mother are definitely taking the lead, but I will help in any way I can

Im going to go out on a limb and say.
NO….actually, HELL NO.
Women are wired to be worriers and planners. 🙂

@LGenz: Hmm. Ya, I can see that.
J’s been randomly saying things like this lately. Makes me wonder.

Do they think about the planning & logistics of a wedding? I don’t think so.
But, men do have opinions about general things – but these opinions are usually formulated on the spot, not like they were at work thinking “humm I think a wedding should have this” 🙂

@panterapeach: LOL! Agreed!
My man is not a detail person, even when he tries to be. All he cares about is how the food tastes and me not making him wear anything pink, otherwise it is up to me.

As a guy — I do think about that stuff! I agree that it’s not all the time, nor to the extent of my fiancee, but I do think about the little details like where we should be positioned so that the sun is not in our guests’ eyes … what should be in the boutonnière, etc. etc.
I’m also very practical and not prone to flights of fancy, so things like timing, positioning, etc. are important to me.

I think they think about the proposal, but no “waiting” or the “planning” like we do!! Yeah, my SO has randomly said things we must have or cannot have, but that’s the extent =)

Short answer: No
My husband did take some interest in some of the details. He had opinions about what food served at the reception, cake flavor, some stuff with the limo and what he was wearing. Overall though he just told me I should do what I wanted.
