@KatieColorado: it’s really odd seeing this post because I recently went to a wedding that did include a groom and best man clad in blue and orange tuxedos…they did the full show: top hats, canes, and the cane fight…must be a collective groom fantasy!

Mine just wants a Cheesecake Shop cake (that’s a chain store in Australia, for cheesecakes and mudcakes) because it’s the cheapest you can get short of making it yourself… and we had one for the engagement party. I had to convince him that we should go for something a bit more personalised for our actual wedding!

Mine has come up with the brilliant idea of having a puppy stampede and then of course everyone’s favor is a puppy.
He would like to theme his entire ensemble after James Bond, including getting a watch and driving off in a rented Aston Martin.
His food requests are: bacon wrapped dates and pizza (I’m actually making both of those happen.)

Just got another one, “I think I want a 3 piece suit, because a vest is an essential part of a wedding.”

Okay… so now, “We could have a water slide at our wedding. Or you know like a slip and slide.”

He was joking but my Fiance suggested that each table should have a roasted turkey for a centerpiece.

This is the best entertainment haha!! My fiancé has had some ridiculous suggestions that I can’t remember but one did happen today. I’ve been spray painting wine bottles (navy, silver, and white) for our centerpieces. They’re a pain in the butt to store and have been taking up a ton of room in our apartment. He suggested buy some kind of hardware to hang them around our apartment until the wedding. Ohhh honey 😉

We are having a smallish intimate backyard wedding at the folks house. All we have to work out is paying for food, seats, bathrooms, decorations and attire. Not too hard right? That is until I start planning with Mr.Goodnight.
Me: We need to make a deposit for the rental chairs. They are going to cost X amount.
Him: WHAT!? It cost that much to rent chairs for one day??
Me: Yes dear. The chairs are actually cheap. Considering we don’t have too many guest, I find this very affordable.
Him: No. It’s crazy to spend money on chairs when everyone we know has chairs.
Me: I don’t follow.
Him: Hear me out. Our invites should say BYOC. Bring Your Own Chair. It is genius! Why didn’t I think of this before!? Everyone can bring their favorite chair. That way we don’t spend money on something wasteful and all the guest will be comfortable in their own seats. C’mon babe, imagine a bunch of chairs in the yard: Queen Anne, Lawn Chairs, Office Chairs. It will be AWESOME.
Our wedding is going to have seating that looks like this: http://media.mlive.com/michigan-deals/photo/garage-sale-findsjpg-b6a103da2123c7c7.jpg
***Wedding Planning Update: He somehow convinced his mom(her backyard) this is a amazing idea. She has already volunteered 28 chairs from her house alone. Now they want me to ask around for chiars to borrow. WHAT THE HECK. I better put my foot down now. I thought he was joking.

He wanted chili for the reception meal because it is cheap to make. I am not opposed to chili or anything, but not for my wedding!

Oh I am so bumping this thread because it is hilarious… We just started planning our wedding and are looking into having it at a nice hotel in the mountains. Here are my favorites from Mr.Soon2bebee
I was thinking at one point about grey as one of our colors. While laying in bed
Him- “Babe, if we wear grey suits can we where white shirts?”
Me- “Um yea, that’s fine”
Him- “Well can we wear red ties?”
Me- “…….. where is this going??”
Him- “We can all look like peewee herman!!!”
Needless to say it took me a while to fall asleep that night.
Here are a couple more of his “great” ideas
Covering the wedding cake in chocolate chips (he LOVES chocolate chips)- no…
He said he does not want to wear “shoes” at the wedding- no dear you must wear shoes
And then of course the chicken fingers as apps at our cocktail hour………..

My Fiance has had a few ideas that i just had to let my bridezilla side out for. Our most recent one after we booked our venue which is very formal:
Him: So you’re happy with everything we decided?
Me: Absolutely it’s going to be beautiful why?
Him: I’m just wondering what our nephews (7, 4, 2 and 1 year olds) are going to do for the reception, they’re going to be really bored.
Me: Okay what did you have in mind?
Him: I think we should rent a bouncy-castle, they’d love it.
Me: Blank look on my face not sure if he was serious or just playing around.
He than continues:
Him: We really should have thought about this more before we booked the venue, we probably could have had it at my aunt and uncles house, they have a huge backyard and swimming pool
Me: Swimming pool?
Him: Yeah to go with the bouncy-castle, the kids would have so much fun I don’t know why we didn’t think of this earlier.
Me: You do realize we’re planning a wedding and not a kids birthday party?
Him: Nods yes
Me: Gets up and walks out the room.
