    Hey Gals,

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

    My FI’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. He’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.

    Fi’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: chocolate? 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 =)
