Hahaha this is great, I’m so glad I’m not the only one with a wedding-illiterate SO!

A few of my favourites:

“Cake bags? What for, can’t they just eat the cake there?! I thought you weren’t the type of girl to have stupid extravagant things at our wedding!”

When I was recently a bridesmaid: “I thought you were going to wash off all that makeup before the reception. I mean, it’s for the photos, right? And the photo part is over.”

“Why don’t I get an engagement ring? I want to show people I’m taken too!” (this was actually really sweet)

“I have to buy another suit? Whats wrong with my suit now?” (he bought his suit for his year 12 formal. He’s now 26, and it’s looking a bit worse for wear)

Bonus from another male friend, on hearing that his girlfriend would be doing the makeup for another friend’s wedding: “I just had the best idea! Like, a week before the wedding, she could come over and you guys could do a practice, or something!” Poor boy was so proud of his idea, no-one had the heart to tell him that the concept of a makeup trial isn’t revolutionary!

My fiance is so funny sometimes, even when he’s being dead serious. Last week when I suggested peach colors for the wedding, he said “Peach!? Why peach? I don’t want to wear a pink tie!” When I told him he didnt have to match the color and that the groomsmen’s ties would match the bridesmaids peach dresses he then calmed down and said with a devilish grin “Oh. My groomsmen will be wearing pink ties then…” It was much funnier in person, for sure.

When discussing which song we should use during the processional, he suggested the Star Wars theme. (You can’t tell he’s obsessed)

Also, right when we got engaged, he was defiant about not having an engagement ring and perisistently told me he wished he was a girl so he could have one! Haha!

We were discussing wedding party attire… He realized he was having the same number of groomsmen (plus himself) as there are power rangers, which of course led to, “I’m going to make them dress like power rangers!” And proceeding to quit seriously rattle of which of his friends best corresponded to which power ranger.

(I talked him down to vests in power ranger colors, which sounds fine to me and I believe may actually be part of our plan now.)

Edited to add: this is the same Fiance who is also considering pokeball cufflinks or something of the sort.

(All of this may sound stupid to some people but honestly I love him for it.)

Mine is dead set on wearing a suit that he’s had from 10 years ago. When he holds out his arms it’s about 6 inches too short. He insists “it’s still good!” Undecided 

Oh and he doesn’t get why we have to send out invitations. He thinks family and friends will hear about it and “show up” *facepalm*

When I mentioned to my Fiance that we needed to get started on our registry he looked at me so confused and said “What’s a registry?” so I explained that we go register at a store so guests know what kind of gifts we need. And he said….”That sounds cool, I’m gonna register for some new Xbox games!” Lmao I was like no, no baby you don’t register for stuff like that. It’s stuff for our home. He thought he could just stroll into a store and start registering for video games, and shoes and stuff lol!

Ok I remembered this post and I had to resurrect it because of a conversation Fiance and I had this morning. Please keep in mind he has been a Groomsmen in two weddings in the last 8 months… so he’s escorted his fair share of BMs… all of which had flowers.

Me: Those lilies you bought me are so pretty! I think that is what I’ll get for my girls for the wedding.

Fiance: What are you talking about?

Me: My bridesmaids, I think I’ll use white lilies for their bouquets.

Fiance: Wait, they get flowers? But you’re the bride, why do they need flowers?

Me: Seriously? You were just in two weddings. They carry them down the aisle.

Fiance: What do they do with them once the get there?

Me: Well, they just hold them and look pretty…

Fiance: I don’t get it… I’ve never noticed that before… are you sure?

@coffeeeeee: Haha! Your post made me think about when I brought up the veil with my Fiance. The thing is, English is not my first language and I had never said the word out loud before. So when I did, it sounded more like veal… Our conversation:

 
Eocenia: So how do you feel about me in a veil during the ceremony?
Fiance: Sticky?
Eocenia: What?
Fiance: And not very attractive. Is that a Swedish tradition?
 
So now, I can’t help thinking about Lady Gaga in that horrible meat costume whenever I picture myself in a veil. Needless to say, I’m NOT going to wear one! 🙂

My Fiance had a stroke when I told him the photographer I wanted was asking for $1800 (unlimited hours + album included!). 

“Can’t I just take the photos?”

No, you’re the groom, you’re supposed to be IN the photos. 

“No one will care about me, everyone’s just there to see the bride anyway.”

While talking about planning my sister’s lingerie party in front of my fiance, he get’s this strange look on his face and said he thought it was kind of weird for a sister to be hosting a party like that for a sister.  He actually thought everyone came to the party dressed up in lingerie!

@MissHobbit:  I asked what my fiancé thought of some wedding invitation samples we received by mail. Her response? They were slippery! Who says that?!

We’re not engaged yet, but the subject of wanting a small wedding came up. I the conversation went a little like this: “So we would have my family, your family, grandparents-” “We have to invite grandparents?” *sigh* “Yes, dear, we have to invite grandparents.” Sorry for the inconvenience. Tongue Out
