  • Wedding: March 2008

Ok, I’m probably the odd one out here, but at the time, he did ALL the planning. He found the pastor, the venue, did the invitations, the restaurant, wrote vows ( with my help there obviously) and organized the details. I was finishing grad school, and tend to get more stressed about things than he does. Our wedding was simple, so it wasn’t a huge endeavor. Our friends also volunteered to help and we just let them do their thing. They did: house decorating, flowers, photography and live music. Our families really contributed also. It was great because I remember wanting it to flow, and not wanting any stress, and that is how the wedding was. We had a ceremony with live classical music, then dinner at a Mexican restaurant, and then a party with a dj at our house, which went long into the night. I found a dress on sale at DB, and didn’t even get alterations lol! The event came together in a very natural way.

littlepinkpointes :  Disclaimer: my Fiance is not originally for the US either. He is only interested about the big picture: how much money the wedding is going to cost him. Lol. He’s much more excited and involved in the planning process for the honeymoon than the actual wedding. And I don’t mind! xoxo

littlepinkpointes :  Yessssss! I think for my Fiance, he feels like the wedding is largely a presentation for other people…but he feels like the honeymoon is about us. So that’s what he’s super pumped for!!

littlepinkpointes :  we split the tasks between us and frankly  the plan is for me to do less in comparison ( he wants big hoopla and I’d be happy with city hall wedding  as I dont like planning stuff like this)

My Fiance has been 100% involved. When we got engaged I felt a lot of pressure from everyone to already have everything decided and planned so Fiance found a wedding planning checklist and has helped get through every single step, especially cake tasting and looking at honeymoon destinations. I can’t imagine how i’d do it without him.

Mine couldn’t care less about it all. I thought for sure he’d care about the food, nope. The only thing he gave a damn about was what guest wore lol he wanted them all to wear white or blue. I was shocked, but whatever. They did and all looked amazing!
