bump: Since when has a wedding ever had anything to do with the groom/man/males?

She has her special 'princess day' envisioned and you are simply a coffee table in the whole scenario really - it's alllll about her her/her mother/her sisters/her friends/countless ''bride themed' magazines and enough money to be practical with and say, oh - put a down payment on a home - for example.


That's what I did. My parents told each of us kids they would spend X amount of money on a wedding. My sister spent every cent they gave her plus a ton of her own cash on her wedding. When I got married I asked "if I come in under can I have the rest towards a down payment on a house" and my folks said yes.

My husband & I had a really nice outdoor wedding at my parents house, I made my own dress (I spent 3 months beading that mofo), got a friend to DJ, made the food ourselves, etc....and we bought a really nice house about a year later.

This May my husband and I will have our 15th anniversary.  My sister got divorced two years ago.

But rest assured, it has NOTHING to do with the man.

This whole article scared the sh*t out of me.

Once the couple became engaged, Owens had to break it to her fiancé that their wedding was already, well, planned.

"I was a little surprised at first," said Shawn Owens, 34.

The Owens made it through the wedding planning process together and, when it came to their big day, much of their wedding resembled the binder full of ideas Owens had assembled.

Owens did give her groom say in at least one thing, however.

"He picked out the tux that he wore," she said. "He picked out the suit and everything that the guys wore. I just gave him a color scheme to work with."

That ability to give at least some leeway, wedding experts say, is the key to ensuring pre-planning doesn't result in a frustrated fiancé, or worse.


I would be gone. See ya.

I've a cousin. She loved Disney growing up. Everything Disney. She got married when she was 19 or 20. Disney themed reception- everything. All her kids have Disney names. She has half a dozen kids and is absolutely miserable. She was a happy person before, but she hates life now. She thought her life would be like a Disney movie- Prince Charming would find her, marry her, and live Happily Ever After. It is beyond sad to see. And she did it to herself.

Owens' booking her wedding band well in advance was just one part of the project manager for I.B.M.'s detailed wedding day planning that began 10 years before she even met her future husband...

"Nobody knew about the binder. It was just another binder on my shelf," said Owens, who labeled her wedding plans "Life" so no one would become suspicious of her early planning.


Seriously, there is some mental illness there.

stainedglassdoll: As someone that is engaged and is planning a wedding, I'm a little annoyed at all the insinuation that anyone that wants a fairly nice, wedding/reception is doomed to have their marriage fall apart.  Come on, guys.  These conversations always devolve into some twisted competition on who spent the least on their wedding and therefore has the most moral superiority.  Can't we all just agree that couples should do whatever makes them happy?  All I know is if we have our close friends taking the time off and money to share our celebration with us, we at least want to host them well and treat them to a good meal (and it looks like we'll be able to do it for significantly less than the cost of the average marital shindig in this country).  If you think that makes us shallow and materialistic, and our love less viable, then you're entitled to your opinion, I guess.  But we're going to have a great time. :)

I feel like you're reading into things a little bit. You had a key phrase in there: Can't we all just agree that couples should do whatever makes them happy? I think that most rational people would find this reasonable, and you yourself said that you'd be spending less than average. I think that people were showing disgust toward those who tend to see a wedding as some sort of culmination when it's really supposed to be about two people officially starting their lives together.

These are the kind of women that know what to name all the kids before the end of the first date. Farking scary.

I just had some friends do an intervention with one member of their social circle that became like this as soon as she hit 35. She had been flirting with a guy on facebook - to the tune of two posts over three days - when she found out he was going out on a date with one of his co-workers. She freaking lost it she was so pissed and jealous. Over those three days she had managed to imagine herself in an exclusive relationship with him, unbeknownst to him. Terrifying stuff. Hopefully he doesn't own a pet rabbit.

KiwDaWabbit: Gyrfalcon: OK, if you are the man, make sure you have an iron-clad pre-nuptial agreement.

A loaded .45 under the pillow also wouldn't hurt.

Pre-nups aren't romantic.


Neither is withholding intimacy as a tool for manipulation but women get away with that.

That part is logical, therefore could never be considered.

Being engaged should be a more rigorous training period to prepare for a life without logic.

Mormon, right? Does she live in Utah or Zonie-land?
