He sent me a text message:

“Well now we have a date, we just need marriage license and our clothes and that’s it right?”

Umm…how can I say this delicately? Hell no, dear!! So naive, the text message made me smile though ๐Ÿ™‚

I can’t stop laughing.  I get a few of these per week from my fiance.

“Why do we need to register for plates?  We have a ton of plates!”  Meanwhile, what we have are leftover pieces from three completely different collections.  I explained that since we’re going to start hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, it would be nice if our plates matched.  He said, “They will match.  We’ll use paper plates.”

In discussing the reception and how the evening is going to take place, he said “I think we should do the speeches at the very beginning.  That way, people can enjoy the rest of the night.”  I explained that it’s customary for people to give speeches when everyone is sitting down eating dinner, since there’s a captive audience.  He said, “Well, I’d prefer we did the speeches at the very beginning, right after they announce our names.”

We were talking with the DJ about the night, and my fiance said “We’re still very much working out what the day is going to look like.  We still haven’t decided on the order of the major events, like the cocktail hour, the reception, and the ceremony.”

Just today, in the car on the way home, he said, “I’ve been thinking about the reception, and this is what I think we should do.  It’s very important to me that we walk around and greet and thank every guest.”  Knowing full well that this is customary, I said, “Sure, honey.  That’s a great idea.”  Then he said, “And I think it would be really nice if we posed for a picture with everyone as we’re thanking them.”  So, with 130 guests, he’d like us to pose for a picture with each of them.  Meanwhile, I guess our photographers don’t need to take time out to eat…

Yesterday, my fiance and I were shopping for Superbowl Sunday.  He wanted to make hotwings, so instead of buying chili power, he asked for some red chili flakes from the Costco pizza stand ๐Ÿ˜‰  After receiving some packets of chili pepper, he turns to me and says….

“You save money with the vendors and I save money with the peppers for our wedding.” ๐Ÿ™‚

I love these! My fiance hasn’t said anything silly that I can remember, but I think that’s mostly because he has enough siblings that he understands how weddings are generally held.

OK, this is going to make my Fiance sounds like a total dummy !


Funniest line before we were engaged;

We were both in my brother’s wedding (MOH/Groomsman) and I was discussing with him the date/time of their rehearsal dinner and I get…

“Why do we need to rehearse eating dinner?”

LMFAO! At first I thought he was joking, then it got even funnier when I realized he was serious.

Gotta love my babycakes!

“So now you want a horse” hahahahahaha so funny.

All of these are so funny.

My FH and I were walking through our venue to get an idea for decorations and I asked him what his thoughts were- “Streamers.. a lot of streamers all over.” Streamers? This is not a toddler birthday party. The best part was that I started laughing because I thought he was joking and he sort of took offense. Ooops!

These are so funny… tears are literally streaming down my face and I’m at work.  Thank god for private offices. I’m still laughing at “So now you want a horse” and “Why do we need to rehearse eating dinner?”
