One thing my fiance doesn’t quite understand, (but is starting to realize it, I think!) is that my whole heart and soul is going into this wedding. All the DIY projects, my dress, etc. Everything! He was married before, and she was lazy and didn’t care about the little sweet details that make the day really special. I told him I want this day to be the most special day of our lives! So, yes, future hubby, I will spend ten thousand hours working on tulle pom poms. 🙂

I am a total groom in my cluelessness about weddings, because I can totally understand where some of these comments are coming from.
@effinjess: I also completely thought that engagement pics were ‘dramatic proposal reenactment pictures’! It makes sense!
I also agree with the sending an email instead of a save the date, see no need for programs, had never heard of a registry, etc etc.
Unfortuntely, the only thing that Fiance doesn’t seem to know about weddings, other than thinking a wedding can be planned in a few weeks, is that *shock*, traditions can be broken.
He doesn’t seem to believe me that we don’t HAVE to have bridesmaids and groomsmen, we don’t HAVE to have a reception in a ballroom with round tables and dancing, we don’t HAVE to do bouquet tosses and garter tosses, we don’t HAVE to waste money on wedding cars that would drive us 100m… ahhhhhh so many things! And he’s so hard to argue with about these things because his only arguement is “but it’s a wedding. We have to!” NO honey, we DON’T! I don’t want ANY of these things and I know he doesn’t really either, he just thinks that they are things you have to have or it’s not really a wedding. I am getting my way slowly, making a wedding that suits US as a couple, and I know he will enjoy more than a traditional wedding. It’s just hard work!
