Nothing would get done. XD

 

I let him plan a trip once.  We stayed at a roach motel…

There would be no wedding at all!!  He gets so distracted and is a super procrastinator!!  It’s not that he doesn’t want to get stuff done, he’ll just do it TOMORROW 😉

At about 5pm on the day of, he’d start calling his friends and trying to throw something together. I’ve give him opportunities to plan different things and it always comes down to that lol

we would go into debt so badly we’d have to file bankruptcy or flee the country. he loves parties. he’d have dancing, and drinking, and expensive decorations and suits… and he’d pay someone to organize it, the most expensive planner he could find.

* note *

money is the biggest conversation we have. i’m taming his champagne taste. good thing we’re great at communicating.

Yup. We’d have our family meet us at the court house on the day of, most likely. He’s never been a planner.

We’d be getting married on Easter Island by some witch doctor with a bone through his nose and a bird on his shoulder.

He’s actually said exactly that before in all seriousness. He wants to travel to a bunch of places and be married how it would traditionally happen there.

It would be a sports themed wedding with burgers, french fries and pizza. Oh and we would go way over budget and probably have like 400 guests.

We would be eloping to Vegas, ALONE! I am 100% sure of this, as certain people are driving him nuts and he said as much to me yesterday.

Granted, he is helping a lot, and we have a common vision overall.  But… if he had total control, there would be no decorations, no dress code, no organized meal, and probably no public ceremony.  Basically, he and I would have a private ceremony and then we’d have a backyard party.  That said, what we’re really doing is not far off the the mark – it will just be prettier than what he’d do himself and we’ll have the public ceremony.

I think that we would have ended up with a really fun wedding! We probably wouldn’t have had centerpieces — and we definitely would have had a candy bar instead of favors — but overall, it would probably have been similar to our actual wedding in Vegas. 🙂

He’d call up our matrons of honor and best man, ask them to meet us at the courthouse or the local Universalist church, and we’d all go out to eat afterwards.

To be fair, this sounds pretty great to me.

I’d have the most cookie-cutter, personality-free wedding of all time.  He gets on my case because I’m trying to put some pazazz in our wedding and he just keeps saying “god Kristen, can’t you just do things the way ‘everyone else’ does them?” to which I reply that if he wanted an average wedding, he should’ve proposed to an average woman.

He also trusts in vendors too much.  Special song requests?  Favorite foods?  Nah, no need to request any of that… we’re paying the vendors to do a job so we should just trust they know whats up.

It would be perfect and exactly what I want. We’ve done the whole thing together, from flowers and decor to cake. He’s gone to all the wedding shows with me too. The only place he wasnt allowed input was my boquet and my dress, neither of which he will see until that day.
