Ugh, glad I am not the only one. So issues we have had:
What do you mean there are two rings?- Didn’t understand the enagement ring, and wedding band concept (I cleared this up before we got engaged)
He refuses to take part in the registry, so I just registered for what I like. He thinks it is rude to let people know what we want because it looks like we are asking for gifts.
Apparently he is never going to give me a list of family and friends to invite, so his sister is going to give me family, guess only his Best Man will get invited…
Doesn’t want to waste money on a photographer. This is OK, cause we are totally broke, but I am going to have his sister take pics of me getting ready and heading down to our cermony location etc.., plus I have a friend who is a photographer who is expected to come, and see if she can work out a deal for just a few formal shots.
We are not really having a reception, just having a small party in a nice hotel suite afterwards, but he doesn’t get that this still needs some planning, and food, drinks, etc.. even if not over the top.
It makes me crazy, because we are keeping it very, very, basic, inexpensive, and low key, but there still needs to be some level of organization. Plus, I have reminded him the cost of the avg wedding is like $22,000 and ours is under $5,000 including our travel!
I had this conversation with his sister yesterday, and she assured me it was men, not me. I told her I thought, maybe he just didn’t want to marry me. :o(
So it is nice to see other guys are a little clueless, although, I still think mine is the most clueless!
