Ours just kind of developed… all by its self. We picked our colors to compliment the natural beauty of the Sedona Red Rock, we used Cathedral Rock on all our Out of Town bags and on our folders, we’re doing table numbers with Arizona things like Cacti and Javelina…. it just all sort of happened.  :o)

Mine is totally on board with what I want. I don’t know if he is enthusiastic about it or not, but he hasn’t complained and likes everything, so far. I think it is because I bring it up to him in a way that he thinks he is the one that is doing the choosing.

My SO isn’t as creative as me.  But he absolutely loved the idea!  Of course I tied in some thing that he likes into it as well

Um…I don’t know that I could truthfully say that Mr. Fro Yo knows what our wedding theme is.  He sees all the stuff, but I don’t think he knows what I’m going to do with it.

Haha, the Dude didn’t give a crap about our theme!  Well, if I had picked something ugly or cheesy he would have vetoed it, but I think he pretty much just trusted me.

it wasn’t really discussed. i just kind of came home with some centerpieces one day, i don’t even know if i showed him. he doesn’t care about that kind of stuff, and it actually works with the venue- which he did help choose and he loves. it’s a historic b&b, and i’m going for a vintage feel. he does let me know what he cares about- photography, food, favors (oddly enough), and he gives me plenty of input on that stuff. but not on theme.

I wanted a black and white wedding… something elegant and timeless.  Fiance didn’t care, lol.  He happily leaves all of the creative/envisioning stuff to me 🙂

Well, we don’t really have a theme, just colors and a general feel. But the boy is fine with it.

i had originally wanted a blue spring wedding, but we’ve since decided that dec 2011 would be the eventual month, so i thought the blue idea was gone, and settled for a deep red instead, until the bf said that “i looked so good in blue i must look good around it”, and he decided we can still make it work 😛

I am pretty sure it was agreed, the chandeliers and feathers are for me and the brunch is for him, all that he really cares about is good food and evidently he cares more about the venue than I could have ever expected lol

We also just have colors and a ‘feel’, and Fiance is TOTALLY down with it.  Though he’s not as good with decorating and making things pretty as me or the average female, he definitely has strong opinions and aesthetic preferences.  Yeah, I picked the colors, but I knew he’d like them, and he loves my Victorian era-influenced style, so he was happy to have that as a ‘feel’ for our formal wedding.
