I painstakinly picked 6 of the most beautiful dresses that I loved, hoping to get an opinion from my Fiance. I downloaded the pctures and put them on a powerpoint slide, numbering them 1 through 6. I sent the slide in an email. Wanted him to feel included, you know.
The email string was like this: Hi Honey! I love all of these…which one(s) do you like best?
Answer: “The white one?”

It has been AGES since I’ve posted, but this one’s got me to bite.
While DH and I were planning the wedding, he was also working on his thesis for grad school.
Our wedding was June 24th, and we were making our invitations. His thesis project was due sometime like the last week of April, first week of May.
When asking for his help on the ONE aspect of the invites I needed him for (we used a laser cutter he had access to through the university to basically engrave the lettering on the invites, and I couldn’t do that myself), he asks “Can’t it wait until I’m done with my thesis?”
Um… he wanted me to wait until the BEGINNING OF MAY to finish and mail my wedding invites for a JUNE wedding. I promptly flipped my s**t and explained that wasn’t going to work.
Men really don’t understand how weddings work.

Oh, I forgot my favorite this morning. I was looking at blue shoes. Fiance asked why. I explained they would be my something blue. He looked confused so I said ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe”. His response: “Something Borrowed? Something Blue? is that some crap Emily Giffin made up?”. At first I was so impressed by knowing my favorite author and her books, then it dawned, he had never heard of the tradition before!

That sounds like something my FH would say.

- “$1,000 for a building for a few hours? Can’t you just find a place for like, $20?”
- “Can we have camo for the wedding colors?”
- “Can I just wear jeans?”
- “Do I have to get my hair done too?”
FH doesn’t understand that weddings cost money. He was completely blown away by the fact that the venue we want costs $1,000 for the ceremony and reception site together (which is pretty cheap) and that the wedding dresses I’ve looked at are around $300-$700. He also didn’t know that lots of women pay to have their hair and makeup done… When I told him that the budget was $5,500 his jaw dropped. I then told him about a wedding I went to recently that was around $40,000. He changed his tune then.

Its not really something he says…but something he does every day.
It seems like everyday he comes in the living room and goes “bay! watch my wedding wobble!” hahah. Its cute because he has TWO LEFT FEET soooo bad. And he wants to do the wobble at the weddding so he literally stands infront of the mirror everyday and practices 😛
……it hasnt gotten anybetter lol. Gotta love him.

My Fiance has “let” me make all the wedding decisions by myself, so he really surprised me by getting upset with the music I chose for the wedding party’s introduction. He is demanding that they walk in to “The Final Countdown.” It’s so weird the things that guys think are important!

Hahah. It actually woulnd’t be a horrible idea if you do like an “evolution of dance” first dance :P. We want to do that too but I might have to sit out that particular dance move 😛

Him: “What…I don’t get it…they’re just flowers.”

“Since we both hate dancing, do we have to have a first dance? Can we just make everyone watch us drink our first beer as a married couple? Since that’s something we actually like doing? We can still use that song you picked out as background music!”
I’m actually tempted to go with it.
And a bonus, Not Wedding Related one, but I’ll count it, because I was out trying on dresses with my mom and I got when the following text exchange took place
Fiance – Why the f&%# do these red glove hot hands things have holes in them?
Fiance – I just burned the hell out of my arm trying to take the pan out of the oven.
Me – Well, honey, those things are called potholders, and they have a hole in them so you can hang them up (they’re the silicon/rubbery kind)
But it was sweet that he tried to make dinner while I was dress shopping.
