Wow, none of mine are as funny as these…

When there was a year left before our wedding, I said we should start making some decisions, like what city we were going to get married in, etc, booking venues, etc. He said that “We still have a year, I thought we’d decide all that stuff like a month before. Don’t get ahead of yourself.”

The other one was after the wedding. We had received some gifts that, um, weren’t really us, and that we weren’t sure what to do with. His response? “Well now we have our Christmas shopping done!”

My Fiance finally said something silly! He called the boutonnieres …wait for it… “CHEST PEICES”. I thought that was about the funniest thing I’ve heard all week!

So MY Fiance not really into the whole wedding planning thing, but is really trying to help in any way he can.  We decided that he and the groomsmen were going to wear black suits and not tuxes. So what does he do.. Orders one off of ebay without me seeing it !! Come to find out it is from Korea way to small for him but in his words “Hey I saved us some money”

 Guess who has is going shopping for a new suit next weekend

Showing off my new fascinator that arrived from Etsy last night, I turned so Fiance could see it in my hair, and he peered close like he was going to sniff the flower and said, “I don’t get it. What does it do?”

I said something to my Fiance about what his mom was going to wear to our wedding, and he goes:

“I don’t know. I have never really seen her in a dress, except for like once, so I think she will just wear a nice pair of blue jeans, with a botton up collared shirt tucked in”

I just looked at him, saw he was DEAD serious, and started laughing! I told him I though she would wear a dress, which she confirmed for us after I told her this story!

My Fiance loves striped ties.. he spent a couple evenings looking up ties that had nothing to do with our wedding colors. Multi-colored stripes, navy and yellow ties all these weird combos until he finally decided on a black bow tie thank goodness! btw our colors are french blue, silver and some purple and buttercream accents. I don’t know why he finally came around. I just kept saying lets keep looking haha Now we are to the dilemma of finding his shoes. he insists on wearing his favorite brown rugged cowboy boots. Im working on getting him to a boots store to find a black pair.. telling him it will look more professional if he wants to wear them to work too 🙂

These are really the only things other than music he has been a part of because he is so busy and Im thankful for that because I can only imagine what tactics I would have had to pull to get other things to go my way haha

Oh and do we really need all this stuff.. when referring to the registry.. can’t we just register for a bad-a new washer and dryer or something big, and just leave it at that!! 

I don’t think I would even add a washer and dyer to a normal registry haha

When we were picking a date in january, I tried to help him realize how crazy the month before the wedding would be. His response: “Oh, well, we’ll just have to buy our christmas gifts early”

yeah like that’s what I was worried about. 🙂

 

When I asked him if there was any type of wedding dress he wouldn’t like, he said “It’s okay with me if you want to get a dress with croutons on it”

he meant sequins.

Oh thank  you girls! I really was thinking my Fiance was the only “crazy” one out there. He is from the islands, and has a VERY island take on everything, like oh we have plenty of time.

I was asking him one day what color he wanted in the bedroom ie sheets and such, and he said white. I said white only white, well yeah of course it has to be white (like there was a rule).

Completely taken a back, I was like really sweety no red, blue, green? He said, “Why would you want a red wedding dress”. Yeah I see mis-communication classes in our future.

 

He hasn’t been to many weddings (I think only one, his mom’s) and so he has NO idea what he is in for, we were looking at wedding/e-rings one day and I started talking about the 4 C’s, and he said the what??? yeah great! Cracker Jack box here I come. Then he said, oh I really like that one for an e-ring. It was a 3-diamond, past, present, and future ring, I so had to explain what that meant…… after that he says, hmmm maybe you should just pick out the ring instead!

I do love him, but this wedding planning is going to kill me! But thanks again for all the laughs, it is good to know I am not the only one. Maybe I should see if he wants a horse, muhahahahha

Too funny!

 

Before we went to visit some venues, I tried to give my Fiance a rundown of some of the key phrases and what we needed to ask about, etc. One of them was whether or not the food was served “live” or in “hot boxes” and I told him that my preference was against hot boxes.

So we are sitting in a meeting, I’m asking a million questions and I turn to him and ask if there is anything else and all he says is, “Do you use hot boxes? We don’t like hot boxes” with a complete deadpan expression! I tried not laugh but it was so cute that he tried to take it so seriously.

These are great!!!!  So glad I was at work alone when I read these because I was seriously laughing out loud.  I can’t think of anything right off of the top of my head that my Fiance has said, but both of us have said some pretty insane things.. I’m not used to the wedding thing, but he had two older siblings to get married a few years ago so he kinda knows the drill.

Fiance claims that us spending $500 on a DJ is expensive.. and every time it comes up he asks why we aren’t using his buddy’s PA system.. and every time I have to remind him that buddy’s speakers are blown.

Oh, and Fiance is a truck (transport) driver too.. I made a joke about honeymooning somewhere he travels to often, and he was like “OMG YES, then I can get a load and we can make money while we’re on our honeymoon!!” (it gets worse) I then joked to his boss about it expecting she would back me up.  She says that she’ll shine up the white truck real nice and send us on our way ><

While I was trying to pick out some of our favourite songs to make sure we have at the wedding, I played the beginning of Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried” and he looks at me  TOTALLY serious and says “You really want that for our first dance?” ..sigh!

He’s lucky he’s cute some days!! Haha.

Oh, and completely not realizing it Fiance asked one of our friends if he wanted a part in the wedding.. but then couldn’t figure out what said friend could be.  Until he came up with a great idea.. (wait for it..)

 

Pall Bearer.

 

His friend burst out laughing and poor Fiance had no idea what he said.  He meant Usher, believe it or not.
