I'm getting married to my beautiful fiance' in January. I proposed to her back in February, and my God has this year been a whirlwind!!

Guest lists, measurements, groomsmen measurements, DJ's, photographers, caterers, seating charts, getting everyone to RSVP on time, marriage licence, marriage class, booking honeymoon, food tastings, cake tastings, getting my mother to quit complaining that things aren't her way, surprise bridal shower that I somehow got involved with, picking wedding bands, picking groomsmen gifts, limo services, learning to dance, song lists......

MY GOD!!!! No wonder I lost my hair at 26!!

This thing was originally going to be small. Maybe 50 people. Now it's 150 people!! (thank God her folks are footing the bill. hehe) I don't even know 150 people!!

We were supposed to have 2 groomsmen and 2 brides maids. We now have 6 each!!

Oh and 1 photographer wasn't enough. Now we have 2. And a videographer.

And flowers.....no man should have to deal with flowers. AHHHHHH!!

The things we do for love.

I can't wait to be posted up on a beach chair in Jamaica with a beer in my hand and a cigar in my mouth!!

No wonder men usually die first!!!

That's because you did it wrong. This is how a Guy's wedding plans go.

Tuxes, Preacher, Grommsmen gifts, Beer, Honeymoon booking. Those were my 5 jobs. Planning weddings is easy.

As I just said to another poster in a different thread......

Shouldn't this be in the drunken ramblings section?

Well enjoy the wedding, all 5 minutes of it that you'll remember Once we were turned and walking down, I was like, "What, that was it? We're married now? Tap the kegs!" Granted, we had a 12 minute wedding from her walking down to us walking back

I proposed she said yes. I figured i was only there for 2 things

#1 pay for it
#2 say I do.

I had her tell me when and where and that was about the extent of it. SWMBO planned the rest and her folks bought us a honeymoon so I didn't even have to do that. Very good wedding.

The other option:

#1 Don't get married
#2 Pay for it.

Ding, ding, ding, ding....We have a winner!

When I proposed to my wife I told her the following..... I said that I am just as happy to be married by an Elvis impersonator in Vegas as I am to have a big wedding in a church. It doesn't matter to me. Therefore, since this is YOUR day, if you want a big church wedding then the plans are up to you and YOU ALONE. At that moment she was sooooo happy about getting a ring that she agreed without question.

I did, however, decide to take care of the things that were important to me in regards to the wedding/reception:

1) I wanted good music, so I handled booking the DJ.
2) I wanted free beer and wine for our guests, so I handled that as well.
3) I handled the groomsmen gift and tuxes since they were for my friends.
4) My younger brother is a minister, so I handled booking him to do our wedding.
5) I booked the honeymoon. Had I not I'm sure we'd still be paying it off 7 years later. Cancun may not be Hawaii, but it's about a tenth of the price.
6) I took part in registering for gifts. Had I not we would have ended up with a crap load of crystal and china sitting in our closet.

Aside from those 6 things I had ZERO to do with anything else.

Just don't get sucked into doing one of those silly "whacky" dances that you don't expect to see at weddings. Anyone that is desperate enough to plan their wedding to make a youtube video is desperate enough to rip out your eyeballs and pee in the empty sockets just to gain the attention of spotty faced 16 year old wankers with a kooky bride fetish.....Just saying it as it is!

My god, how the internet has enhanced my sceptisism!
