The boy and I just had our first wedding related fight. And do you want to know what it was about – Dodgeball. Yes, that’s right, I said dodgeball.
He’s a youth pastor and I’m a volunteer youth leader at the church, and dodgeball is a large part of our ministry. So he thought it would be a fun idea to have a game of dodgeball for the youth and his camp friends (And I do have to admit it WOULD make a great photo op). But I don’t want it. At all.
Our plans for our reception are already less than “formal” and currently include lawn games (Bocce, Cornhole, etc…) and about a 90% chance of a bounce house. But when he asked today if we could somehow incorporate dodgeball – I LOST it. We seriously argued about it for 45 minutes…. in the church parking lot…. haha
By the end we both realized how absolutely absurd it was to be arguing about wedding reception dodgeball and had a good laugh.
But it made me wonder, what’s the dumbest/silliest/weirdest/most insignificant thing you’ve fought about related to your wedding?

Just last night we fought about the tv show Bones. It was whether or not Zack Addy had actually killed someone and if going to a mental institution instead of life in prison was getting a “deal”. It got pretty heated!

Wedding related? We got in a huge argument at Sam’s Club a few weeks ago about whether to serve kegs vs. bottles. It was intense.

he wouldnt let me order our envelopes for the invitations 8 months before the wedding. I was ready to start lining, addressing and embossing the envelopes already. These things take time.

Fiance likes to ‘fake argue’ with me occassionally, but I think he was being serious when we were arguing about trhe catering. He really, really wanted his favorite taco place (not a nice Mexican restaurant mind you, it’s just a couple of steps above Taco Bell) to cater, and I kinda yelled at him more than I should have. We were at his apartment complex’s pool with one of my friends and we just kept arguing about it. It wasn’t heated or anything, just really drawn out and dumb.

He tried to throw away my bridal magazines. I say not until after the wedding.

Our color scheme. It got so nitpicky that we ended up arguing over the exact color that “slate blue” was.

@MissMeg: My SO suggested we could find food for 15 per person and he “knew” someone who could deliver it! Really?! No thanks. He also suggested we could have two separate weddings(one in each of our hometown) so it could be convenient. Pulling off two weddings in a place I don’t live to be convenient? Okay, that’s irrational.

Hmmm, wedding related (and dumb, might I add … bc the fights about his side of the family being invited that we don’t even know has been ongoing and a serious one lol) So, the dumbest would be the venue. It was dumb bc he wanted to put large plasmas up all over the reception hall (for what, still unsure) simply bc he could get them for free from his job.
I believe for the picture show or camera sitting around. I informed him its not the superbowl so they’re unnecessary. But, it was a dumb argument. lol

He is being sosuperintense about the car we drive away in. When I point out that… we are staying where we are and it’s not even necessary, he gets all “But I want this super BA car, whinewhine”
And I’m super-practical. It doesn’t make sense. This is still not resolved. :p

Inviting people from work or not!
I think its ridiculous and inapproriate to invite people from work especially since he has only worked there a few months, they are not in the same state as our wedding, and there are 25 total because of spouses etc. I’ve been at the same job for 3+ years and regurlarly see my co-workers outside of work and they are still not invited. I just think its weird that his boss will be there to watch him take a garter off my leg, us drinking, us expressing emotions and sentiment.
Battle still on, we will see who wins. 🙂

The thing that gets me all the time is the factor that he doesn’t think we need to set a menu yet and that he thinks we can change the menu a week or two before if he changes his mind.
I think the most unheard of thing we got in a fight over was that he wants a picture cake for our wedding cake and I refused! I am talking about the fact that he wants a big sheet cake with a picture of us in the middle saying “Happy Wedding”

It wasn’t so much a fight per say, as a bad idea that got semi shot down… I posted a thread about it a few weeks ago….
Another one is how the invite to his grandparents will be addressed. I said it needed to be their actual names, while he thinks addressing it to “mama lupita” is ok…. not so much. I guess we will cross that bridge when we get there.

@jillieb: I feel sooooo good knowing that most men are crazy. I have not laughed this hard in a long time. A picture cake? A car to drive around the corner? Taco Bell? Hilarous!
