  • Well, sure, if they're gay and the femme in the relationship... maybe.
  • Ya, I'm not buying this. Most new marriages, the couple are young, and just starting out in the workforce, the last thing the guy wants is a 10 or 15 k bill to pay off when he's more worried about paying the rent and utilities. I call bullshiat.
  • They're called bride-zillas for a reason. No one's ever said groom-othra

    Ha!
  • Apotheosis of the UNLIKELY tag

    Vs. Mecha-bridezilla!
  • Female here, and I have always been of the mind that if you pay so much for your wedding that you cannot afford a down payment a home, you're not mature enough to get married. And, if you think your wedding should be the most wonderful day of your life, you have a pretty poor opinion of the marriage is will follow your wedding.

    "...is will follow..."?

    Please,

    Thank you.
  • even ric romero is calling bullshiat on this one.
  • There's an inverse relationship between the amount of money you spend on the wedding and the length of the marriage.

    /EVERY day is "my special day all about me," dammit

    Yeah, bad on my part. Should be "of the marriage that will follow your wedding."

  • I don't understand weddings. I do like receptions where you can dance and have food with your family and friends though. Maybe a Halloween wedding wouldn't be so bad if everybody could dress up and maybe some people did the thriller dance. Yeah, with my ideas I should just start stocking up on cats .... But I'm having a hard time thinking guys are into big fairly tale weddings. Maybe they want to show off? I don't know.
  • I don't know how common it is, but my husband wanted a fancier wedding than I did. I wanted to get married in the yard with a tea and cookie reception. That didn't fly with either him or his mother. We paid for our own wedding. My parents would have sooner committed suicide than help with the expenses. He convinced me I would be happy with the decision years later, flipping through the album of wedding pictures. That might have been nice had the photographer deemed to take pictures of me that involved clothes. Despite my request that she stay out of the dressing area, she brought me an album full of "tasteful" pictures she'd snapped unnoticed while I was dressing. They are disgusting. Most of the remaining photographs are of my SIL. There were so many photographs of my SIL, my MIL actually got upset about it. Now, the entire album is stuffed out of sight. I won't keep it anywhere that might induce someone to look at it.
  • To be fair, I DID want a stripper to be the flower girl.
  • bullshiat. men are not groomed from infancy to plan their fairytale weddings in which they are the star of the show.

    this will be the last bastion of inequality. once the wedding industry dies then, and only then, will we truly be post-gender.
  • I dunno. I'd kind of like *one* of my weddings to be of the fairy tale variety. Change is sometimes good.
  • The most interesting wedding reception I went to is where the groom and bride were already arguing about shiat. College friends who got married and they were both crazy. Tried to hook up with her long after they had separated and all she would go on about is her ex, and how he ruined her sex life.

    Yeah, she was throwing me a hint and a half, but she was really nuts. Would not stop talking about him and besides she was unreliable. Always extremely late for dates.
  • I am casting my vote in with the UNLIKELY crowd here too, but mileage is going to vary with both men and women. Despite all the horror stories we see around here all the time, I think its only a few crazy biatches who demand an insane lavish wedding. My relatively sane, stable friends and I all just want to laugh and have a good time with our family and friends to mark the start of a big change in our lives, if we think its the right choice for us.
  • Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: To be fair, I DID want a stripper to be the flower girl.


    Or vice versa.
  • I can believe this.

    The key to understanding this is that there probably was no definition of what a "fairytale wedding" entails.
    What a random guy considers to be a "fairytale" might entirely fly below some bridezilla's radar.
  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH​AHAHAH

    *gasp*

    HAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAH​HAHAA
  • My husband wanted the big wedding, not me. I only agreed to it because our parents were willing to pay for it. Of course it's always more stressful for a woman than the man. A man just has to show up on time in a nice suit.
