    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot? No, I don't see the point.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session? No, some things just don't need to be photographed.

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos) We did! It was a simple sheet cake with H's alma mater on it. He loved it.

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys: I don't think he enjoyed anything per se, but he really helped out. A lot.

    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors: We both hated printing everything and tying ribbons on 150 favor boxes.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot? No, probably not.  I'd love to, but I want to donate my dress to a good cause, so I don't want it to be damaged so someone else has to get it professionally cleaned -- and it's not in the cards for me to do it financially.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session? Wanted to, but don't have the time/money.

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos) We can't bring any other food in.

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys: Anything involving eating (food tasting, cake tasting, etc.)

    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors: Anything "nuts and  bolts" (seating charts, escort cards, etc.)

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot? I don't think so. I think my mom might have a heart attack.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session? Maybe ;) He seems to like the idea.

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos) I want to try and have one. I'm thinking of making one myself for him as a surprise as our regular cake costs a lot as it is :/

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot? Noooooo.  I love love love my dress, and I would feel terrible about messing it up/trashing it.  I know that all it's going to do for the rest of my life is hang in the closet in it's box, but really, I just can't imagine trashing it.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session? No.  H would probably like it, but I think I would feel totally awkward doing something like that.

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos) Nope.  H doesn't really like cake at all.

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys: He seemed to hate venue selection and meeting with the DJ the least, so I'll go with those things as his favorite. :)

    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors: He really hated the flower discussions.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot? Nah I don't think so.  I wish I was that ballsy, but I can't see trashing the garment I've spent the most money on and getting a trash-the-dress-dress defeats the purpose IMO

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session? I didn't for the wedding but I'd consider it for an anniversary or something

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos) No grooms cake, he wants chocolate delight so we're doing a Grooms Dessert - which apparently is what the Groom's "Cake" was traditionally (according to my baker anyway).

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys: The music is definitely his favorite part.

    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors: The guest list and the fact that he will be seeing aunts and uncles that he has no desire to see at the wedding lol.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot? We're going to because we had 2 sessions included in our package and have already done e-pics and a boudoir shoot. We were going to do it right after around Santiago, but we didn't have time, so now I'm thinking we might wait til we're in CA in March and do it in San Francisco.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session? Yes. I actually did them before we were even engaged (for free) because my BFF is a photographer and needed some b-pics for her portfolio. H and I were her go-to models when she was starting out :)

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos) No

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys: He did the song list with a friend and had fun with it.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot? I considered it, but I don't really know what I would do with the pics. 

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session? I think it would be fun to do one in the future.

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos) Nope. As much as I love cake, we're just having a normal spice cake at the rehearsal dinner and a normal wedding cake at the reception. No red velvet armadillos for us.

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys: Finding our DJ and picking our menus. Om nom nom.

    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors: Writing thank you notes for gifts we've already received from his family has been a struggle. I've had to write a lot of thank you notes from the shower and presents that have come from my family so far. I think it's only fair that he write a few, or at least feed me the words while I write. I think our thank you note ratio is like 30 written by me to his 1. I'm definitely going to have to put some incentive on fi-written thank you notes.

    Licia - our ratio of thank yous written by H and thank yous written by me is 0 to 150.  Yes, I wrote them all.  Every. Single. One.  I knew there was absolutely no way H would write a thank you note in a timely manner so I just wrote them all.  Control freak?  Maybe, but I didn't want our guests to think badly of us for not getting them out in an appropriate time frame (no offense aerin :) )

    Frogurt, my hands hurt just reading that. Hopefully, with enough glaring and threats of possible PS3 confiscation, I can keep our ration a little more even.

    Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot?  No.  I donated my dress to Brides Against Breast Cancer.  There was one shot I actually really wanted, of me in my dress on my scooter, helmet and all, but alas.  (Though I should note that I've seen very few TTD shoots that actually damage the dress beyond a basic cleaning; unless the bride specifically requests that she wants the garment destroyed, usually the photographer is pretty careful.)

    Did you ever do a boudoir photo session?  DH and I have an unspoken rule that we don't commit anything to film that we wouldn't want showing up in a tabloid later in our careers.

    Did you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos)  No, mainly because DH was so enamored of our main cake idea.  We did ice cream birthday cakes for the RD.

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys:  He had the run of the menu, which he was happy about.

    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors:  He practically begged me to stop talking about my stylist woes with him.  Unfortunately I do my most effective thinking aloud, so he sort of suffered through it until I booked someone.

    And Frogurt, no offense taken.  I know that I should feel bad about it taking this long.  I convinced DH that we need to head up to Yosemite next weekend because it's the last chance we'll have before we move (we're busy the rest of the month, and then it's snow until spring), so maybe I'll take them along with me in the car and just bang them out.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot?
    I haven't ... yet ... but I also still haven't taken my dress to be preserved (Even though I've already paid to have it done), because I keep thinking "I want to wear it, just one more time". So I'm still debating doing one ... I just don't want to get it so messy that it wouldn't be able to be preserved afterwards.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session?
    Despite how "open book" everybody thinks I am, I'm actually incredibly shy and reserved when it comes to bedroom-related matters. I toyed with the idea of doing one, because I know DH would love it ... but the truth is, I don't have the balls, lol.

    Did you?do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos)
    We didn't have one-honestly, we'd never even heard of them until I joined TK. It's a cool idea ... but to be perfectly honest, when it came to "extras", if it wasn't included in our venue package, for the most part, we skipped it. They gave us our "regular" cake, and that was good enough for us.

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys:
    He was actually really into the flowers that we had to take care of (Venue did the decor and center pieces for us). But flowers are a pretty big deal in his family: several generations ago, when his family was still in Italy, they actually had cultivated their own special roses that were famous all over the country at the time.
    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors:
    Ok, I can't fault him too much, because I've admitted on several occasions I wasn't all that into planning, lol. He really could not care less about the attire (One of the few things our venue didn't give us, lol), especially the "girl" stuff. But he wasn't into tuxes really either ... he kind of took me and my mom to Men's Wearhouse and said "You both know I can't dress myself and my friends dress even worse than me. Help.", lol.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a trash the dress photo shoot?  No, I don't really see the point.

    Do you plan to/Did you ever do a boudoir photo session?  I really want to.  I think FI would love it and I think it would be a lot of fun.  The idea makes me a little nervous though!

    Did you/do you plan on having a groom's cake? If so, what of? (photos)  I want to surprise FI with one at the wedding.  Right now I'm thinking a regular DQ cake decorated to look like a hockey puck.  FI can't eat regular cake, but loves ice cream cake, so I think it would really make him happy.

    One part of planning that your guy enjoys:  He's been pretty into the whole thing.  I'm outing us as total geeks, but we're both really excited to do seating charts when the time comes.  He's pretty much taken care of the DJ entirely, and I know he's looking forward to the limo stuff.

    One part (or more) of planning that your guy abhors:  Flowers.  He doesn't see the point.  He keeps trying to convince me to put our flower budget to other things, haha.  (I mean, he'd be fine with it if I went out and bought a second wedding dress, as long as the money came out of the flower budget.)

    DH made up spreadsheets for the finances (account amounts, vendor prices, deposits, payments, etc) and for the gifts (who sent what, what was sent, date it arrived, who wrote thank you and the date).  For the last two weeks, we had a schedule spreadsheet that for the last two days broke down into his and her schedules.  You are not alone in your geekiness - all of our vendors complimented our organization.  My response was "How in the world do you plan a wedding without this level of organization??"
