YES! He has very strong opinions about the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (they have to be yellow, lol) and he also had really strong opinions on our cake topper! It’s adorable, but really random. Every once in a while he’ll bust out with something completely out of the blue that just “HAS TO BE” a certain way. It’s pretty funny!

he definitely cares what we ask for in the registry, the music, and the honeymoon… mostly common things, but he’s left it all to me for the planning and what i want so it’s funny to get any opinion out of him! 🙂

The shape of the tables of all things! I really want rectangular tables, he’s really bent on round. Somehow he thinks there’s less conversation flow at a rectangular table, but do we all sit in silence at our diningroom table?! Plus if we go with round tables it puts a huge kink in my centrepiece plans, so there’s no way he’s winning this one!

Our desserts buffet. It’s really my baby since I love sweets, but somehow he and our caterer highjacked it and have turned it into a sweet/savory buffet. Sigh.

Oh and the tent. I wanted to get the liners on the inside so you couldn’t see all the framework and whatnot, but he HATED it and refused to let me rent it. It saved us a lot of money so I was okay with it, but I was surprised he felt SO strongly about it, LOL!

Otherwise he’s been a good boy with lots of “yes dear” “It’s beautiful honey” “that’s going to be great babe!”, LOL!

My Fiance really wants a chocolate fountain. I agree- it will be totally awesome!

He also wants to DIY the invitation and is excited to use his skills to lay them out and print them.

He cared a lot about what he and the groomsman would be wearing.  Since our wedding is outside during the summer, I wanted them to wear a lighter colored suit or tux, definitely NOT black.

He gave me a hard time about it, mainly because every wedding he’s been to or been in, the men have worn black tuxes.  My Fiance is the type of guy that can’t think out of the box most of the time.  He’s so hesitant to do anything different than what he’s seen at other weddings.  Luckily, I’ve convinced him to wear a light gray tux.

haha oh I love this!

At first Fiance wanted to be involved in EVERYTHING. Which meant, me do al the reserach, give him several options and have him pick my least favorite or suggest something else entirely. What?!

Finally, I asked him what he wanted to be in charge of and we delegated tasks. Like usual, he got transportation and music, and planning for half of our honeymoon (Hawaii, two islands)

When registering, he was OBSESSED with knives! and closely behind that, the silverware! oh, and cookware. Fine with me, he’s a great cook! I took over the baking and linens dept. haha oh and he wanted lots of picture frames?!

oh fiances 🙂  – luckily he loved my idea for boutineers so we were okay there. Oh, and he insists on having our dog in some of our pictures.

The vacuum on the wedding registry. He can’t understand why I don’t want a carpet steamer as our only vacuum because a carpet steamer is “the only way the rugs get clean.” He has one at his apartment and I asked him if it was his only vacuum and he said “yes” then I asked how often he uses it: “a couple times a year, but it really cleans the carpets.” Yeah ok. It was turning into an issue at BB&B so we had to walk away from the vacuums and talk about silverware, lol.

@MsTerrapin –  Yeah, I totally know what you mean.  I also don’t have the typical ballgown wedding dress that my Fiance has seen a million times at other weddings, and I was worried that he would be really taken aback by my dress.  It’s really annoying how he bases everything off of other weddings and doesn’t understand the concept of being different!

He is very adamant about not having assigned seating!!

He was also weirdly into the engagement pics after a long long time of saying that he didnt care!!! He got upset because he got a hair cut the day before and it didnt turn out how he wanted and he was like “Im going to look bad in the enegagement pics!” it was very odd!!

My Fiance has really strong feeling about ….well it feels weird to say it, but ME.  He doesnt care about what type of cutlery we have, what our decorations look like, what the cake is doing or what kind of music we have.  He is totally 100% just laid back and easy going. However, when i start to freak out a little bit, he gets all upset and being like ” Dont STRESS! this is supposed to be the most important day of your life!!! Dont act like this!!” thats the only thing he has had to say about the wedding since we started planning. He just doesnt want me to worry and to just enjoy the process. I know i have said a few times, but we only got engaged in the end of march and our wedding is in may. So 2 months to plan the most imporant day of my life….I think im actually being pretty calm.

He’s really into the music and the food, but I think that it’s pretty normal for the groom to be involved with those two things.

He’s really letting me take the lead on most things. I even got to pick out what color suit he wears. He doesn’t want to wear a bout, so we’re going to go with a pocket square.

Other than that, he’s been pretty easygoing.
