I know there used to be an old thread similar to this, and I thought it was fun, so I’m reviving it. Mr. Hobbit and I were discussing different aspects of the wedding, and I asked him what colors he’d prefer. His response?
“We get colors?”

I get the feeling this thread will provide me with much amusement!
I asked my Fiance if he had any ideas for the wedding breakfast. His response was “Beetle Drive”… for those that don’t know what this is here is an extract from Wikipedia;
“a British party game in which one draws a beetle in parts. The game may be played solely with pen, paper and a die or using a commercial game set, some of which contain custom scorepads and dice and others which contain pieces which snap together to make a beetle/bug. It is sometimes called Cooties or Bugs. The game is entirely based on random die rolls, there is no element of skill involved”
Needless to say this wasn’t exctly what I had in mind for our vintage, afternoon tea themed affair…

We are doing a consumption bar where we will be paying for mid-shelf liquor: ” Can’t we offer to subsidize the top shelf, so people pay the difference between Goose and Absolute?”
And then over the policy that all drinks will be served on the rocks (i.e. no shots), “But can’t we make an exception for people I say can do shots with me?”. Um..no. You aren’t doing shots either. Not in front ofy family and co-workers. Be happy I agreed to having liquor and drop it.

“What are Camels breath anyway?”

Had to register just to reply. My FH is . . . Well. . . I love him. . .
While having a discussion about dessert v. cake, I mentioned needing cake bags in case people wanted to take some home. FH “What are cake bags???”
So after trying unsuccessfully to explain to him the concept of bags to put cake in (really, isn’t the name self-explanatory?) I showed him a pic on ebay. His response: “So. . . They’re just barf bags with pretty pictures on them.”

Ha, the whole straight liquor thing was a concern for Fiance also. But, we’re scotch drinkers so it was a legitimate concern!
I told Fiance I wanted to send save the dates in November before the holidays or wait until January, and he said “this November?”. Well, we’re getting married next September, so yes, this November.

My Fiance just said last week – “I heard cast iron skillets are great to make eggs in. Can we register for one of those?”
My jaw hit the floor. This is a guy who hadn’t turned on the stove in almost two years until I moved in. And who bitched and complained about registering at all. I was like how the heck do you even know what a cast iron skillet is?

LoL! Barf bags… that’s hilarious.
I wish my Fiance had said some really silly things, but so far I’ve only got one. At the time it wasn’t very funny, but recently he finally wanted a break-down of our budget. When I told him that our venue (for both ceremony and reception) and catering will cost about $5,000 for our 100 guests, he got really sad and said he wished we had booked a cheaper place. I almost couldn’t keep it together as I informed him that all of the other places we looked at cost at least $15,000 and I had booked literally the cheapest place I could find. Bless his heart, he’s not very good with money 🙂

“Can’t we just get one of those cardboard cut outs that looks like me, record my voice saying our vows, and use that as a stand in for the ceremony?”
Poor guy is nervous 🙁
