Is it cute or stupid??

One BM told me it's cute and loves it.. another said it was stupid and I shouldn't do it.

Every time FI and I talk about him wearing a ring, he says he doesn't want to, that it's uncomfortable, he doesn't wear jewelry, etc... so my reply always is... buddy, even if I have to crazy glue it to your finger, you are wearing it!! lol 

So the other day at the store I find these tiny tubes of crazy glue and thought.. how funny would it be if when the officiant tells me to put the ring on his finger, I turn to my BMs and they each pull out the tiny glue tube and pretend to put glue on it.. then put it on his finger. I think that would be really funny! I know he would get a huge kick out of it.

I'm always joking around and saying/doing silly things, so it wouldn't be out of character for me to do something like that.

One BM loved the idea and was very excited about it because she knows how I am.  Another one said, it would ruin the moment, that it would take away from the meaning of it.

I think it would be really funny. I'm also thinking of adding to my vows "I promise to let you keep cooking for me almost every night"... another running joke between us.

Am I wrong here? Is it stupid and it will ruin the moment?

    It sounds cute to me.

    If it's something that is "you" and you want to do it, I think you should. I don't see how a little joke is going to take the meaning out of the moment, especially if you are the type to joke about things.

    Personally, I think the best weddings I've been to are the ones where someone says something that makes the whole crowd laugh during the ceremony.

    that is adorable and a moment you will both definitely remember...

    I was MOH at a friends wedding and when they were exchanging vows, she promised to be good to him in the good and the BED, in front of all our friends and family... total freudian slip but made for a great story...

    I say GO FOR IT!

    I think it sounds adorable and the guests may not understand it, but your FI will and he'll probably get a laugh out of it and that's what matters.  Maybe just have the one BM that liked the idea act like she's gluing it?  OR she can hand you the super glue and you can act like you're doing it so FI can see the tube of glue and not wonder what BM is doing.:)

    Thanks girls. That's what I thought... I will do it.

    Good point Candis... I think that's even better. Have them hand me the glue for me to do it.

    vleon - That's hilarious!  I did a wedding once where the groom said "I take you to be my awfully wedded wife"  :-) Everyone bursted into laughter.

    I think it's super cute! If you're going for a romantic mood, then no... but if you guys are just silly and want the ceremony to represent the two of you silliness and all... then I say go for it!

    I was wondering the same thing because I got FI apple (mac) cufflinks since he works witht ehm so much, and ok they might not be the most delicate but its very him
    Do waht YOU want, and what will make YOU laugh and be happy, and you said he would really get a kick out of it, so even better

    I think it's hilarious! If it's definitely how you guys are with each other, then this will totally capture your humor.

    I also like the idea of the BM handing it to you so he can see it right in front of him.  

    And I 100% agree with Janet.. make sure it's caught on video! I wanna see it!

    I definitely think this is a cute idea and it wouldn't ruin the moment if it is something that you and your FI would find funny .. it would make it more memorable and special. And yes, please post a video clip afterwards :)
