RQOTD

This weekend I was watching "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway" and on this epsiode, the groom decided to suprise his fiancee by planning their entire wedding in a week with the help of a wedding planner and the bride's (bitchy) mother. When he told his fiancee that he had planned the wedding and they were getting married the next day she actually took the news surprisingly well. Now I don't know if the show paid for a portion of or their entire wedding or if they just supplied the planner but it got me thinking and this leads to my Random Question of the Day:

If you were offered $100K for your dream wedding but it meant giving up COMPLETE control of every aspect of the planning (including your dress) to your fiance would you do it?


My answer: after much hesitation I would say yes...I was a bit of a control freak when it came to my wedding so giving up that control would be very hard. But I think Kristian could do a good job planning a wedding on a $100k budget...I would just make sure he knew EXACTLY what I did and didn't like in advance!

I would totally do it! Josh and I have very similar taste, so I think he'd do a great job (espicially with the help of a planner and my mom!)

I don't know....I trust my boyfriend's judgement and think that by now he knows what I want but I don't think I could do it. I say this now, because I haven't been through the stress of wedding planning yet; but, I am going to enjoy planning my wedding (way under $100k :) My answer will probably be different after I get married though.

I'd do it. My wedding would be nothing like I'v ever pictured, but my boyfriend would be happy. And, it'd be a great expression of my love for him and trust in him because we both know I like things my way and to be in control!

Honestly, I do not think I would ... My fiance would be miserable planning the whole thing and I would end up not getting the wedding that I dreamed of.

I'd say yes because Rob has similar tastes as I do if not maybe a tad more conservative. Also, he's more likely to splurge on things than I am which would be a benefit. Even with a large budget, I'd have trouble buying certain things just because of costs.

Marian said...

Oh, what a great question!! I think I would totally do it. Liam is actually doing a lot of work as it is. The hardest part would probably be the dress and not being able to do that whole process because as much as I complained, I did really enjoy trying them all on!!

No way! I loved planning my wedding and making it our own. I liked our personalized $20,000 wedding much more than I would a $100,000 wedding that I had little no input into.

I'd have to say no. As stressful as it was at times, the planning part was a lot of fun for me...I enjoyed most of it, especially the dress shopping! I don't think any amount of money could have convinced me to let someone else plan our day!

Hell yes! It be one helluva backyard throwdown!

Hmm. If a planner and/or one of our moms was involved, I'd say yes -- I think he'd put together a great party! But if it was just my sweetie, I'd have to say no. He had some, uh, quirky ideas. For example, he was really interested in a ceremony space that was too small for our guest list. His solution if we got too many "yes" RSVPs was to uninvite people from the ceremony! (In his defense, he was still going to let them come to the reception.) I'd want someone sensible there to talk him out of ideas like that one!

Hmmm prob not as I loved planning my wedding and making stuff for it.

But if we were to do that; I would hope that the other half would know enough of what I would want too!

I have to say no way. While I think Mr Fix It would do a good job on the planning aspect, we have totally different tastes and he wouldn't know how to come up with the ideas and such that I incorporated. :) It wouldn't be worth it to me at all...I would want our day to be 'our' day..not just one of our choices and style. But that's just me.
