Fiance: Honey, I did a great thing today. (You know nothing good ever comes from a line like that.) The RSVP cards came in the mail while you were gone, so I opened them and noticed they had this huge typo in them, so I called the company and had them fix it. They’re printing us new ones tomorrow!

ME: But I proofed them online. How could they have a typo?

Fiance: Look, there’s this random “M” on the line where they’re supposed to write their names!!


Poor thing couldn’t grasp the concept of the M___________ line on the RSVPS. He had them reordered for an unnecessary $100 that I had to fight to get back.

He. Legit. Thought. It. Was. A. Typo.

My Fiance thinks “we have enough crap” so he wants to hand write on the bottom of our invitations “We don’t need crap! Bring cash!” are you kidding!? I am going to have to hide them from him when they come in! We will see if he changes his tune once he gets his hands on the scanner gun! Tongue out

My guy thought that he and I could just make all the food for the reception. Like, I could just put on an apron and whip up a meal for 120 people on my wedding day. I quickly made him see the light.

My newest favorite from him:


after we designed (ok, I designed and he approved) our save the dates and sent out around 90% of them, I was working on the design (drawing up a mock-up) for the invitations. He helped me pick the calligraphy style and we even reinvented a couple letters he didn’t like. No joke, he helped to that level. He loved the side design on the invite, helped with the envelope size and liked my liner idea. He can’t wait to use the sealing wax to seal the envelopes.


So the other day I said something about invitations and he “didn’t we already send those”

me: “no dear, those were save the date cards”

him: “oh, so then we have to do invitations too?”

ummm, you just spent hours with me designing our invites… did you forget already?

๐Ÿ™‚ I love him so much he just cracks me UP.

Just today he said “What do you mean we need to find a limo? I’ll just drive. Your dress can fit in my front seat right? I mean, we are just going home.” Going home? Yeah, He wants to drive away from our wedding in his 98 Avalon and head home… to our apartment… on our wedding night… No hunny, not happening.

My favorite so far is from when we were at Bed, Bath and Beyond:

“This is awesome!”

“What is?”

“You can put 4 bottles on here and you never have to worry about replacing the cap!” refering to a $20 liqure dispenser.

“Well, that’s something we can out on the registry.”

“What’s that?”

“A list of things we would like to have as we start our new life together.”

“You mean someone will buy this for me!? Does that mean they’ll buy me the alcohol too!?!?”

Oh bless his heart…

Mine thought that the engagement ring was just for the time you’re engaged.  He had no idea that women wear theirs with their wedding band!

He had no idea that people returned RSVPs if they are not coming. He thought it was only confirmations.

We are not officially engaged yet. Can’t wait to see what he comes up with once we are actually planning!

@MapleBecky: Mine too! He TOTALLY did not get that there were two seperate rings for engagement and wedding. He just assumed you got an engagement ring and then he just put that one on your finger on the wedding day, too.

These are hilarious, keep them coming!

Haha these are too funny!  Fiance was sitting beside me as I read those and goes “I haven’t said anything you’re going to post on there, right?”  And I don’t think he has.  He’s been pretty good.

There aren’t enough words for me to describe what men don’t know about weddings… OR I should say: to describe what my man doesn’t know about weddings. ๐Ÿ™‚
