  • Wedding: June 2012

We’re having an outside wedding in a small garden like area. I told him to go measure the area so we can know how many chairs can fit. He says to me ” why do we need chairs, why cant people just stand. I mean we’re gonna be standing the whole time so they should too”. Remind you now his grandmother is 82. All I could do is smdh!!!!

@vanilla44:  Haha where to begin??!??! I think the one that really lit my fire was when he insisted that we didn’t need a photographer. I was debating between hiring a real (and thus expensive) professional or getting the friend-of-a-friend who is trying to build up her portfolio and so would do the job on the cheap but possibly not as well. Instead of helping me decide between these two possibilities, which was a really big and important decision, he insisted that we didn’t need a photographer at all. Clearly, all the guests with their digital cameras would do a fine job capturing the day.

Yes dear, our $10k+ wedding will look great in the photos people upload to facebook. I’ll just ask them to email them to me for the wedding album. 

And when I told him he was basically being an idiot, he got mad that I even asked him in the first place if I wasn’t going to listen to his ideas. Haha lesson learned! Don’t ask Fiance questions if his answer is likely to irritate me 😛

@soon2bnixon:  I’m pretty sure Fiance said something along those lines too!

When I was making our chair signs Fiance kept saying “I don’t know why we need signs, they are going to know who we are when we’re sitting down”.

It took quite a bit of convincing that the signs weren’t so people knew we were the bride and groom, but so that people knew those SEATS were for us (we have open seating)… Then when they were done I showed Fiance and he says “those look great! what other words are you going to make, we can just hang them everywhere”…. DOH!

It’s not so much what my Fiance says or does….It’s what he doesn’t say and doesn’t do! When I ask for his opinion, everything is “fine” or it “looks nice.”  He’s just not into details I guess.

On our menu card, under Entrée I actually put “Pig’s belly fat and fish scales” to see if he would notice and no joke…He told me they looked good!!!  Uuuugggghhhhh

@PinkFlemingo:  haha I had this exact conversation with FI!!  except his alternative was his brother in law (who he has as a groomsmen btw!) who used to do photography… Um, he’s IN the wedding he can’t be in the wedding and take pictures, and I’m pretty sure being IN the wedding is more important… Besides the fact that I’m really picky about photography and would hate to not like the pictures and hold it against Brother-In-Law forever… lol

Well Fiance and I go to the same hair person and this seriously happened the other day.

He went in at 1 pm to get a haircut and the hairdresser wasn’t ready for him; she asked how the wedding planning was going and he said it’s great! Pretty much done and not that much left to do 🙂 Got a haircut and left.

After he left I went in there at about…1:30 pm and saw the hairdresser; she wasn’t ready for me so she asked me how the wedding planning was going and I just huddled in a heap. I told her there was soo much left to do and launched into my list for the next month. Got a haircut and left.

Apparently after we left, the customer she was working on said, wow, that girl could learn a lesson or two from that guy…he’s doing pretty good with his wedding. The hairdresser looked at her and said, believe it or not, they’re talking about the same wedding.

A few weeks ago while asking him about details (after he said he wanted to be consulted on EVERY detail) he made a comment that he only wanted to help with the details that were about him. Which equates to Food + his clothes. Apparently everything else is about me.

Last night I also heard this gem come out of this mouth “$90 for 60 invitations?! Why cant we just start a facebook event? Its free, and people will come I promise.”

I hate when I ask for his opinion and he says he doesn’t care because and I quote “it’s your day.” While I do agree the focus is primarily on the bride I certainly don’t go around touting that is my day and we’ll do what I want regardless of his feelings. I am very quick to correct him that it is OUR day, not just mine.

“Can we have a choreographed sword and chair fight?”

“What?”

“At the wedding! Instead of the first dance.” (Bear in mind I’m an ex ballroom dancer and the first dance is one of two aspects of the wedding I actually care about)

“No.”

“After the first dance?”

“Probably not.”

“Why not!?”

“We’ll see, but I just don’t think it’s quite in the spirit of the day. Also I don’t think any of your family except maybe your siblings and father would particularly like to travel five hours to see me hit you over the head with a chair.”

“Oh. Maybe.”
