@jen 42713:  I am from Boston and VERY Irish and so is pretty much my entire side of the family attending our wedding. Our wedding is at an Irish pub and banquet hall here in Milwaukee so my Fiance wanted to offset some of the Irsih-ness by bringing in his Polish roots….with a Polka Band!! LOL He’s still trying to get a hold of them to see if they’d come play at our wedding, even if it’s just for an hour. I’m actually kind of excited for my crazy Irish family to hear them 🙂

This is FI’s second wedding and when we initially talked about it, he had a huge laundry list of don’t-wants:

  • No veil (I’m in agreement)
  • No boutonneire (bit sad)
  • No groomsmen or best man (may try to change his mind on this one)

Turns out that when we’ve gone on appointments, the do-wants have come up:

  • All new clothes, including dress shoes
  • Female officiant–which I’m fine with, as long as she has a good voice and is taller than my shoulder (I’m 5’10”, he’s 6’2″)
  • Song in the iPod mix from every live show we’ve seen.  This is going to be an interesting mix–Soundgarden, Franz Ferdinand, Tiger Lillies, The Cult, Imelda May…

@RedWine13:  How about some Mo-town stuff?  Classic, fun, and up-beat!

These are all so hilarious, thank you for the entertainment. I have no contributions to this post, my fiance has given ZERO input, but my wedding is July of 2014 so we have some time. Maybe as it gets closer he will chime in with a random request.

My fiancé is designing our invitations (he’s a pro graphic designer) and will not take any criticism or suggestions at all. Luckily, I love the design. He’s really into the rules of men’s fashion so there was some disagreement about whether he would wear a tux or not. We’re getting married at 5pm in August so he thinks he will look stupid in a formal tuxedo, because sunset isn’t until about 7pm.  when I suggested he and the other groomsmen wear light grey suits instead he said they would look like “plebs”

He eventually agreed to the tux but is adamant about purchasing a designer tux.  He keeps saying he’s going to wear it everyday once he gets it. It’s his money so I really don’t care.

The weirdest thing he’s requested is that he wants to help get me out of my wedding dress at the end of the evening when we go back to the “honeymoon suite”.  

 

And I’m all like NO.  Because the last thing you need to see is me climbing OUT of my dress, with almost undergarmets on, clothing lines on my body, sweaty, and tipsy too boot….  I’ve made countless bridal assitants see that (minus the alcholol, pity) and I felt sorry for them and myself too.    That is NOT the way I want you to see me on our wedding night. Trust me… It. Is. Not. Sexy.

Fiance insisted we have favors (he also chose and assembled them), individual place cards, limo service, the flower girl dress, chose the suits for the GMs, ring bearer, and the fathers.

He also planned the ENTIRE rehearsal dinner!

My Fiance did request an entirely dessert reception (as in no real food, just tables and tables of desserts). I hope he was joking, because I said no way!

We are having our wedding in Canada, and my fiance insists on providing German beer. He also tried to get the venue to stay open until 4am, but that is not possible. Otherwise, he didn’t want pink as a wedding colour and wanted the ceremony outside. Not too unreasonable 🙂

@HeyKaraoke:  Wait! What exactly is a cookie table? My son is getting married in PA, but none of us are from there. Explain how this works?

@morgansmom:  it’s a western pa tradition 🙂 in addition to cake/dessert, there’s a table of just cookies. They’re usually baked by the bride/groom’s families, especially if there’s a relative with mad baking skills, but some people get store-bought too. I used to work at a banquet hall, we did tons of wedding receptions and most of them had 1 or 2 8-foot tables just covered in tons of cookies, all different kinds.
