My Fiance literally care about nothing but the fact that he wants a Shea Stadium replica grooms cake.. everything else… he could care less… oh and apparently that I wear a veil…. men….

My Fiance was very concerned that the napkins not be glittery fabric because then it would get on peoples faces. Yes very odd huh, I really want know where he experienced glitter napkins that attacked!

My Fiance hasn’t specifically asked for anything… which is really good because my mom and I are both pretty opinionated and I just don’t think we could add another person’s opinions into this situation!  The men in my family have been telling him to practice the phrase “Yes, dear” and I think he’s really getting it 🙂

Haha, one of my FI’s first suggestions:

We’re getting married lakeside, and had the idea that we could pay people who own sailboats to anchor them in the lake behind the ceremony, so they could be in the backdrop of all of our pictures.  Okay, so that might be kind of neat but it was literally his first suggestion once the venue was picked! 🙂 🙂  Love him!

The biggest request my FH had was to ensure the tableclothes went all the way to the floor. I can only imagine that this was something his mom must have insisted on at his sisters wedding so he is only repeating what she said, but it still amused me. Of ALL the details, that is the only thing you really care about? Hhah!

 

kostahowsk  that is a cute idea! even if a little silly, because he is trying to make it so pretty and perfect for you.

he comments on if the baseboards were chipping or if the paint was chipping near the corners of venues when we were visiting various venues… also commented on placement of “exit signs” and electric sockets – made me want to pull my hair out!!

Fiance has an opinion on everything but the flowers. And I’m sure once we get there, he’ll find something to say :). It’s odd, because he’s usually very un-opinionated. I like it, though, since I’ll know that it’s our wedding and not just mine :).

@vickyness: My dad will do this at the most random places or lean against a wall and be like yep is blah blah off here and not structurally sound. It would embarrass me so much as a kid!

@bohemianbailie: wow… yeah Fiance was doing that at EVERY venue… it drove me bat sh*t crazy since he’d walk out and go “its okay we’ll find something let’s keep looking!” i had already contacted about 80 diff venues and he’d still manage to find something wrong with them! his favorite line was “I don’t like where this support column is.” is your dad an engineer?

aww that is so cute that your Fiance noticed that the lights are out.  he wants the color green as one of our colors.  That is it so far.  I am sure he will have more opinions as we continue planning.

haha I can’t think of anything like THAT off the top of my head but when I told him about his presents to his parents, groomsmen, and Best Man he said, “Shouldn’t me getting married be enough of a gift?” hahahahaha yeah, you wish, buddy.

My FH’s one request was that we have chocolate milk served with the wedding cake. The catering manager at our venue was pretty amused by that one.

Wow, those are some pretty cute suggestions! Lol!

(Note to self: Make sure the tablecloths are down to the floor!) I have learned something new! Laughing
