My Fiance didn’t know that the bride’s parents paid for the wedding. He also didn’t know that you couldn’t see eachother the day of!

Mine was married briefly before and STILL doesn’t know ‘anything’ about weddings.  I sure hope when the day comes, he realizes how much work I really did put into everything and how wonderful it turned out.

What our response cards looked like.

I left our first RSVP out for him to open.  He said, “It’s addressed to you.”  I said, I know, but you can open it.  He is confused and says, “Why?”  And holds it like it’s going to explode.  I say, “Just open it!”  So he does.  He looks at it and says, “It’s a card from Mr and Mrs Steve Whitney.”  OH MY GOD!!!

Yes dear, that’s our first RSVP.  “Oh, I like the envelope and this sticker label thing.  It’s very nice.”

Um…you helped stack them..but ok.  Oy!

My Fiance didn’t know what cake toppers were. I was looking at some pictures online and  the conversation essentially went like this:

“What are those??”

“They’re cake toppers.”

“What’s a cake topper??”

“Uh…they go on top of cakes….”

“oh…”

My Fiance had NO IDEA what things cost! He thought we could get a photographer who was amazing for like $500.

My Fiance is totally blown away by the cost of things too. I think once I got him over the initial shock of the cost of renting a hall everything else was a little easier to accept.

LOL @leilafl, I think Fiance and I had EXACTLY the same conversation… then he followed it with, what do we need that for? 

Why do we?  Except that its cute and pretty!  Is there another reasoning behind them?

Add my Fiance to the list of men that have NO clue how much weddings cost.  We’re not even having an extravagant wedding by any means but at one point he was like …

“Can’t we just tell everyone to go to the park and just do it there?”

“Um… even if we DID do that, we’d have to reserve it, pay a fee, and rent chairs…”

“What the hell! WHY would we have to reserve a PARK? It’s public property.”

“That’s exactly why. So we don’t show up and find another 3 weddings at the park!”

*Sigh*
