What are the Random Things Your FI/DH put his foot down about**

Recommended Posts

Hey Gals,

 

So I thought it would be fun to post the random stuff that our FIâ€s or DHâ€s put their foot down about in the wedding planning.

 

My FIâ€s is super laid back and not a big planner. He is the creative laid back match to my type A-ness. So he from day one he was supportive in saying this is my day and he wants what ever I want. Heâ€s not to involved in the planning but will offer an opinion when asked and mainly does not care or is supportive of what I decide.

 

But now and then he will get amped up about the most RANDOM things.

 

Fiâ€s most random things so far:

1.Cake Topper- I LOVE the metal or crystal monograms, he thinks I am crazy and insists on flowers or plain—This is the oddest thing to me.

 

2.Tux rental shoes- despises them, no tux for our DW but was thinking maybe for the AHR and he went on and on about the shiny shoes. –cracks me up.

 

3.Flip flops- what ever I chose he HATES, but has been good about then selecting others he likes and emailing them to me.

With my husband it was two things:

the STDs had to be PERFECT, corners cut just right and the design had to be flawless. That was amusing... for like the first 30 seconds! LOL

And the second one was his shoes! I wanted everyone barefoot for the wedding and he was NOT about to do that. So instead he bought all the GM's matching flip flops so at least they all still looked cute.

I think FI is only going to put his foot down about the music. He's really picky about the music and I know he's going to want a say in each and every song that's on our playlist!

LOL... this is a funny thread!

 

My DH's most random fuss... The Cake.....

 

this is a summary of a portion of the meeting we had

 

WC: what would you like for a cake?

DH: doesn't matter, i don't have an opinion on that

Me: probably chocolate - with white icing (and I hand her my inspiration pics)

DH: chocolatehuh.gif? No non.. Not chocolate

WC: you have something else in mind?

DH: vanilla, with some sort of filling, maybe butterscotch or caramel, white icing, but not really sweet icing, something that goes well with the butterscotch....

Me: good thing you didn't care

 

That was funny...

 

The other component he really really became involved in was the music... he made playlists for hours!

 

I can't wait to read about other peoples funny FI's and DH's

My FI was pretty adamant about the GM attire - he too cares a lot about their shoes (they have to be the right kind of brown shoes or sandals) and their belt (I know SO random!) Other than that he has been super laid back and has been very helpful :)

HAHA! Same here. We fought for about 3 weeks about this one until he finally gave in and we just booked our photographer. I am very happy.

for some reason FI really wants pie instead of wedding cake/cupcakes but I am not having it...maybe if you are having a barn type reception that is super laid back, but on the beach? not so much! we will see if I get my way - I hope so!

My FI hasn't put his foot down on much yet. He pretty much knows to not say anything, haha! He is weird about what he is wearing-he wants to pick it out and he is weird about his flip-flops too. He has good fashion taste, so I am not that worried =)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
