What color and music theme would you want for your wedding? Are you the type that would want to call the shots, or talk about this topic with your S/O, or you really don't care and wouldn't have a problem with your S/O calling the shots as far as what they wanted?

For me, I would want to talk it over with my special lady, and work out something with music and the color theme that we could both agree to.

I talked about this topic with my sweetie about a week ago (no, we're not getting married anytime soon...when the time is right we will ), and we both agreed to go with the color of lavander, with the instrumental music theme of St. Elmo's Fire as she walks on down to me. The theme music would be a combination of love music over the past 30 years. I have some really good music in mind during our wedding event. Our wedding will also take place outside.

If and when we tie the knot, so to speak. My wedding will be anything from traditional. So who knows that colors, music, or anything else we will choose for the event.

I was gonna say.........Shawn..........all this talk of wedding stuff??? rings??? engagement rings??? wedding themes??? colors??? music???

Sounds to me if you're not planning it yet, it's very much on your mind at the least!!!

Oh and BTW, typically the bride and her bridal party or wedding planner picks out all the colors, themes, music, food, place settings, center pieces.........etc. Basically, you just have to show up! On the bright side it is generally expected she and her family will pay for it...

yeah, it has been, but we're both not going to rush into things.

I know, that's usually how it's done, but I would love to have a role in these decisions as well. I only plan on getting married once, so I want to make it just right.

You've got to be kidding me??? The more I think about it, the funnier and more ludicrous it becomes,,,and I suppose the the bride is to wear white too? Will you try to catch the bouquet?

Bruce 'ole boy, you're too set in your ways and way too old fashion for your own good to think this should only be up to the bride herself and her family. Even though I'm somewhat of a traditionalist, I'm still open minded enough to try something different, and something I want to pertake in with the decision making. Yes, some of us guys also care about this type of stuff. Clearly you're a little too closeminded and lack any interest whatsoever on special meanings and occasions.

I have had my wedding and divorce. Next time I'll just find a woman that resents me, buy her a house, and save the attorney's fees.

Have at it then. But to come on my blog to ridicule me simply for showing an interest in my own future wedding is pretty tasteless.

Hey good luck with the wedding plans from experience I can tell you it will be that last time you will get to pick a color or at least one she hasn't already picked. Be honest was lavander your color pick? Only kidding but there is a bit of truth to it as most guys on this sight will tell you!

Hey now, like I said, we're not rushing into a wedding or anything like that. It'll be a while on in the future before we take our vows with each other. As for lavander, yeah, we both love that color, and I do think it's a pretty color. I'm very comfortable in my sexualality to where I'm not too concerned what people think of what colors a man should and should not like. Most guys I'm sure doesn't view it as a manly color, but I'm not like most guys. I don't play that stuff. If I like it I like it. People should be true to themselves and not worry about what others think of them.

As for married life....I'm sure we're going to disagree from time to time on what colors to paint certain rooms.

But hey, that's sometime in the future.

Straddle....if you read WoW's comment, I believe he meant HIM ever getting married again....not any weddings you would have. I mean...asking if YOU are going to catch the bouquet would be incredibly redundant if it was your wedding...


As for ours...as she has said, it will be far from traditional....likely black and silver in color and a cross between Medieval/Goth....*Wicked Smile*

Well now Shawn. just in case You can use this.


My Vow To You

When you are sad, I will dry your tears
When you are scared, I will comfort your fears
When you need love, my heart I will share
When you are sick, for you I will care

You will feel my love when we are apart
Knowing that nothing will change my heart
When you are worried, I will give you hope
When you are confused, I will help you cope

When you are lost, and can’t see the light
My love will be a beacon, shining ever so bright
This is my vow, one that I pledge till the end
For you above all are my wife and best friend

These words I have written, speak of my love for you
From my lips these words spoken, shall always ring true
God has blessed me, and with your hand in mine
Both of our hearts, will forever intertwine

Into all lives, falls pain and sorrows,
I promise together, we will meet all tomorrows
Happy together, with honor and love
blessed in unity by God above

Sure doesn't sound like he was talking about himself with this statement. Sounds like it was directed to me because of my involvement with the wedding plans.

Just the way I read it, Bro. Only he can confirm. But again...at his age ( and obviously hers too ), a bride wearing white would be more than funny....

Let me give you a big piece of advise. Let the Brides mother plan everything. You don't need to get into that argument, believe me.

My ex tried to have the kind of input into our wedding that you want to do and even his mother told him, it wasn't up to him. And my mum told him, to stay out of it, so he did. She gets to choose everything. Most girls have dreamed and planned their wedding days from about age 5. They dream of being the princess, walking to the music they want.

If you want special music, leave it for the reception. Never come between a girl and her wedding.LOL And yes, It's HER wedding. It's her family paying for it usually. You only have to pay for the honeymoon and her bouquet, which she picks out. Also her ring.

Sounds kind of un-fair in this day and age. But most woman will tell you, a wedding is traditional, even if the event ends up not being so. LOL.

Down to the courthouse and maybe the reception beach side. Save the money for our first home together. That's practical Luna speaking here.

Romantic Luna says small non-traditional lakeside wedding, me in a strapless gown with lace accents, no veil but a spray of flowers placed in my curls. Walk down the aisle to an acoustic guitar rendition of "You Must Love Me" from Evita and 1st dance at the reception would be this or R.E.M's "At My Most Beautiful". Colors..well,whatever suited me and the groom.

Reception in a large tent with hanging lights, traditional Southern and vegetarian cuisine, no DJ just someone's mp3 player hooked up and an open bar, of course. Oh, and I'd make sure I was friends with a photographer to get wedding photos on the cheap. ;-P

For me at this time for music..It'd have to be the Funeral Dirge

I got married once on the banks of the Santa Fe River in Santa Fe , New Mexico.
Just the attendants and us,,
We wore white jeans and white Moroccan wedding shirts..
After we went to the minister's home and he broke out the good booze
Then we went to a Middle Eastern restaurant on Canyon Road after..

Does Robin Hood and Maid Marion ring a bell?...YES..that's what I want ....a Rennaisance wedding in a field with a slight hill, so we can walk up each side and meet at the top at sunrise ....to Celtic music and a little bit of Yanni thrown in....specific enough? .......color scheme......wheats and greens and colors or the fall in my wreath for my head and my bouquet.

I work in the wedding industry a little and these days it is the Bride and Groom that make the decisions together on colors and music and food and most of the time it is the Bride and Groom who goes 50/50 on the wedding cost unless one of them has a lot of money. The brides parents no longer have to foot the whole bill for the wedding. And in 80% of cases since the late 1970s do not pay for any of it.

As for the white dress, anyone can wear them now. They were not really a sign of purity when the white dress started out. Colored cloth came from France and they were in the middle of a war at the time so all the brides could get was either white or off white fabric to make their dresses at the time. All those other reasons were tacked on by the clergy through the years. In some cultures you would not wear white to a wedding as that is what they wear to funerals.

As for me, I like wines and deep purples and who knows what kind of music I would walk down the aisle to. Just as long as it is not Billy Idol's White Wedding. LOL

Celtic music

If it was the Afro/Celt Sound System, that'd be cool

If I'm every crazy enough to get married again I'm thinking a justice of the peace, we spend the weekend at a great resort and we call it a well executed event.

I've done the big wedding, it was tons of hassle, headache and money. Next time I'm keeping it simple.

When it comes to a wedding, I would most definitely be sharing ideas with my S/O as he is part of it too. I would want it to be something we both enjoy and put an equal part of ourselves into.

If I was to get married it would be a small and intimate gathering...just close friends and family. It would take place in the fall outside in a garden and it would be a low-key affair...simple and classy.

I'm not sure what the colors or the music would be, as I'm sure the guy would like some input into these decisions. I very much agree with Shewolf when she stated the wedding decisions today are now made by both the bride and the groom.

As far as my dress goes, I don't think I would wear white simply because there are so many beautiful gowns to choose from, and a lot of these gowns come in various shades and colors that are both stunning and eloquent.
