So while watching some woman FREAK out on Bridezillas the other day because she was so stressed from planning a wedding my SO turns to me and says “I bet I could plan a wedding in two hours! This isn’t that difficult. All you’d need to do is say this goes here and this will go like that! Just two hours, that’s all I’d need”
Got me thinking about how strange a wedding would turn out to be like if he planned it in two hours. In my head I am picturing the ceremony in the garden section of a Home Depot so he could save money on flowers (he is very frugal).
What quirky things would a wedding have if your SO/ FI planned your wedding in two hours?

I’m pretty sure if my FI planned the wedding, it would be at a campground or something (because you know, why wouldn’t our grandparents want to sleep in tents?), with a pig roast and a couple of kegs. I’m guessing there wouldn’t be any decorations, because he just wouldn’t think of them. He would probably get a good photographer though, because he’s big into having good photos, and he would show up in a good suit. Also, we would have a delicious cake.
It would probably be fine, just maybe not very classy lol.

In all fairness, DH did put a lot of work into our wedding, but I definitely took the lead… if he’d planned it, it probably would have come out pretty close to what we had, but it would have cost 6 times as much because he’d have done it all at the last minute.

I’m from the UK and we have a tv show called “Don’t tell the bride”, where the groom plans the wedding in 3 weeks with £12 000. We nearly entered but in the end decided against it. I would have completely trusted him to sort everything out to fit exactly what I wanted but I enjoy the process of organising it too much.
Don’t I would have had anything quirky and I’ve actually run every idea through him as he’s had to rein me in from my crazy ideas!!!

My SO will be taking a big part in the planning; he’s really excited to start. I told him as long as we have good food,a gorgeous dress for me, we get to say ‘I do’, and an open bar I will have the time of my life. The only thing he specifically asked for was that I worry about the flowers. I’m all like ‘psssht, flowers in November, can’t we just do pumpkins?’ hahahaha
I totally imagine me carrying a huuuuuge pumpkin down the aisle in my awesome dress, sweat beads coming down my face.

If mine planned it everyone would show up in their nice clothes and would have to set everything up, cook their own food, and clean everything up. How do I know? because that is the way he threw dinner parties before he met me : (
There would be not enough food or drinks and no decorations. He would probablydig out one of his to small track suits from wherever he hides them so I can’t throw them out. He would shave though so I guess that is a point in his favor lol.
Umm lets be glad this isn’t going to happen!

Mine would be at a casino, if FH planned it. Probably at vegas, at a drive-through elvis wedding chapel, and then he would vanish and I’d find in at the slots. LOL

If my FI planned it, we would have our officiant come to our apt and marry us in our pyjamas. Nope, he is not planning this at all!

It would be awful. He would hire a comedian as an officiant, do some crazy elaborate thing for when we went down the aisle and he would have everyone do “funny speeches” at the reception which I imagine would turn more in a roast of me and or him and the relationship. No children would be allowed and most of the music would be country music.
He would also get really plastered before the wedding and probably get his groomsmen in on that as well. He probably would if he could make his dog his best man.
I would be very upset, shocked and embarrassed to attend a wedding like this (mostly because of the blind drunkness and the roast style reception.)

If he planned it with the same amount of time that I have, I think we’d actually have a very nice little wedding. He’d be the one on WeddingBee day in and day out and learning etiquette rules and where to get good deals. If he planned it in 2 hours… that would be another story. I think we’d be going to the courthouse.

Fi swears he can throw better parties than me if given the chance. He used to work as a banquet manager so he has experience with events, but I don’t think he would think of all the small details. It would be a very nice wedding though but it would cost more money as fi has expensive taste and is not as frugal as I am (plus he doesnt waste time shopping around for bargains like I do). I would trust him to plan the wedding… he just doesn’t have as much time as I do.
If he planned it in 2 hours, we’d go to the court house and then have a nice takeout meal at home.

@happyface: I’m not going to lie, being married in pajamas and slippers sounds fantastic! And after instead of a buffet you could just have all you can eat pancakes!

He would probably want everyone to show up in their favorite team’s jersey. It would probably include playing baseball and or flag football, eating lots of smores (which we are actually having at our wedding) and it would be held in Vegas. It would be a dream come true for him.
Haha, no I think he would probably do a great job and throw a heck of a party….but it would still be in Vegas. 🙂

Umm.. yeah, if he planned it? We’d be dressed to the nines at the local courthouse, haha. I’d trust him to throw a pretty good party afterwards, though. Just, you know, without decorations. 😉
