We had a simple outdoor brunch wedding. It was beautiful and intimate. I knew early on I wanted it to be vintage and I wanted pink as one of my main colors.
My daughter’s had their pink dresses. My son had his pink tie, but my husband kept refusing to wear a pink tie! He is totally comfortable with his sexuality. He never says he won’t do something because it’s “gay”. So this took me totally by surprise!
But get this, when his mom came down for the wedding 3 days beforehand, I mentioned it, and she said offhandedly that his brother wore a lavendar tie for his wedding. And Voila! He said he woudl wear a pink tie. LOL
*Edited to add a pic of the pink tie 😛 *

I wanted to get married on a beach but he insisted we get married in a church. Which I eventually was fine with! 🙂

my FH said no chicken dance. I’m OK with that.

We’re not doing a first dance because he doesn’t want everyone staring at us.

He doesn’t want to dance, not even with me. It’s fine because I don’t like to dance either. I am hoping after a few drinks I’ll get to catch him dancing with someone though!

My guy doesn’t want a big wedding but everything else he doesn’t care about.
My ex refused to wear a pink tie too… it wasn’t a big deal because I wasn’t totally stuck on any ideas. But he also refused to have any pink in his bout too, that was frustrating.

He doesn’t want our head table named Pride and Prejudice (instead of table numbers our tables will be named after books we like), still trying to twist his arm on that but so far he hasn’t budged. So it will probably be the parents’ table or another table instead, and ours will probably be Harry Potter or something, since that is the only book we share in common!

Oh good Lord yes. Darling Husband was extremely involved in our wedding planning process. Drove me nuts! He was very picky about the decorations, the music, and the food. He also insisted on no dancing.

Why did you have pink in your wedding if your guy didn’t like it?

My husband refused the idea of doing a first look for a very long time. Finally we went to a wedding and the couple took pictures after the ceremony which meant we were waiting for 2+hours at the reception. I finally got my husband to agree to a first look so that we could take picture before. He ended up loving it!

@Jacqui90: Oh my. I love the idea, but I hope you find a more romantic tittle than Harry Potter. 🙂
Loving allt he comment ladies. I noticed that a lot of them are dance related. We didn’t have dancing as it was a brunch, but I do wish I would have been well enough for a first dance.

@susi_petunia: Haha! Happy he was cool with the pink tie in the end. 🙂 My Fiance has been adament about a lot of things which I was cool with at first. But he isn’t helping much with planning so I decided he can’t be adament about anything unless he’s involved.

I wanted to wear my veil back all the way down the aisle towards him. It is much prettier pushed back because the pleating makes a cascading effect. But I got outvoted. He wants it over my face because he wants to lift it to kiss me, which I thought was very sweet.
Pushed back (the way I wanted to wear it)
With the blusher down (the way he wants it)

no first look. he’s adamant that the first time he sees me will be walking down the aisle. I’m ok with this one though.
The one that I don’t get – he is Scottish, born and raised in Glasgow. His parents are still there. We are getting married in Glasgow and he WON’t wear a kilt!! I’m soo sad 🙁

@peachacid: Pink is my favorite color. My husband didn’t mind that there was pink in the wedding. In fact, he liked that is was in our wedding because of this reason. He simply did not want to wear the color. He is a very conservative dresser.
The awesome part is that he ended up loving his tie. He thought he would never wear it again, but has, quite a few times! Hah.
