Fiance Friday #1!

Hello to all of you out in the blog-o-sphere! Holl and I thought it would be fun to introduce a new feature we like to call "Fiance Friday." (The name was my idea). I have noticed that there are not a whole lot of grooms out in "blog land," blogging about their wedding preparations. So, every Friday (and other days on occasion - when I'm allowed :)) I'll chime in my two cents on this whole wedding planning business. I'll probably bring some comic relief along with me, because, well, that's just me. :)

I thought I would take today's post as an opportunity to share with you all some things that I have already learned throughout this process. First, some background! As many of you know, we've been engaged since the beginning of November. With more than a year until our wedding, there is still quite a bit of planning left to do. So far, I've learned MANY things! Did you know that you can get flowers in almost any color you want them?? Also, did you know they make women's shoes in about every color under the sun?? Who would've thought! Perhaps it is because I'm a guy and I only go for basic colors of white, gray, black, and brown. Apparently, not everything goes with those colors.

Speaking of colors, grooms of the world, listen to me closely! When your fiancee tells you that she wants to go to Home Depot, it IS NOT because she is suddenly interested in power tools! Yes, I have to admit I have spent over an hour of my life in Home Depot looking at color swatches in order to get inspiration for wedding colors.

I've already learned about some things I SHOULD NOT, under ANY circumstance, say while planning our wedding. These things include, "I don't care. You pick." Trust me when I say, grooms, that you should have an opinion on EVERYTHING! Now, whether that opinion is taken in to consideration every time can be a different story. :) Of course, I'm lucky enough to have a fiancee who ALWAYS takes my opinion into account. ;) The one other thing I have learned not to say is, "The church is beautiful, what do you mean we need flowers?" No matter how beautiful the location of your wedding might be, you will always need flowers. Take it from me. :)

Well, that's it for this Fiance Friday! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I'm done with my Comprehensive Exams for my graduate program, so it is time for some relaxation!

Until next Friday,

  2. Great post, Kevin!!! I loved it and it brought a smile to my face. I look forward to future Fridays! Sounds like things are moving right along very normally. Yes, it IS always a good idea to have some kind of opinion. Another thing never to say is, "It doesn't matter." :) It ALL matters.

  3. Thanks for the post, Kev. I love to see your sense of humor added to the site. Great way to express what you are experiencing as well.

  4. Thanks for the post and I agree with Hollyanne that you need to put up pictures.
