Our "first" fight over wedding projects

Recommended Posts

Hey Emme,

 

First off YAY Red Deer, AB!!! Finally found someone on this forum from here!

 

I am going through the same thing with my FI. Details and organization are so not important to men! I just tell him the important stuff and tell him to leave all the little things to me - capiche wink.gif

 

It's good you are able to see beyond the silly fighting and remember that he's your man, you love him and it's not a big deal! At the end of the day your wedding will be amazing and both of you will be super happy for all the hard work you've put in!

For the most part, I find that guys aren't really interested/excited about the wedding until it's a couple months away. Then they're all excited to do stuff, but by that point, we're fried and have our own routine set. Try not to squash their excitement (even though it can be frustrating sometimes).

Last Sunday we were shopping for necklaces for my bridesmaids. (well we just stopped into a store and they had some great stuff we weren't really SHOPPING) I found two that I liked and I'm very indecisive. I asked FI "which one do you like?" Of course he said "it doesn't matter honey whichever one you want." (the problem is he says that about EVERYTHING!!! So I say back to him... "Don't you have an opinion?" There was another customer in the store who overheard the conversation she said "I have an opinion, what do you need?" LOL

We don't have fights I just end up doing it all because he is all thumbs and then some. He does sit and keep me company though. And then asks me after everything is done, If I really think all this is necessary. Of course the answer is always "Well what do you think" lol. We so love our men don't we....

These are just cracking me up. We haven't argued about anything yet, but I'm sure with as much of a perfectionist as I can be sometimes, it will happen. But this did remind me of something my roommate said(she's getting married next month).

This morning she asked her FI if she could make him a little list of things she needed to have done for the wedding. He told her that he had a busy day so he didn't think that would work. So all sweetly she says, okay honey what are your big plans for today? He then tells her that he is planning on seeing a movie with a friend. So she expectantly asks what else he has going on. And he tells her, well I just really wanted to sleep right up until the movie.

 

I found it funny but at the same time, I really want to know if he actually ended up doing anything. lol.

Ya looks like it's a common theme!

 

We fight about every single wedding related thing. So now I just never talk about it or bring it up with him and this seems to work! I don't know why I was involving him so much or asking for his opinion when I never liked his opinions and he got mad when I wouldn't do it his way.

 

So it's better this way! I think we can't help it. When girls get engaged a switch is flipped and we become all anal about stuff and we simply can't help it! It's nice though that he tries to help! Thumbs up for effort.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
