He doesn't want to send separate invites to our 20-something cousins and their SOs, just send one to their parents' house with 6 or 8 names written on it. (He also still doesn't understand why this is rude).
Yeah, don't do this. It's not even practical.
My cousin did this, and then my mom forgot to tell me about the wedding. I found out later, after missing her wedding (and of course not RSVPing to say I wouldn't be there) that I was even invited.
Officially hitched as of 10/25/13
FI originally wanted a dollar dance and games at the reception to keep guests entertained. Other than those, he's been very helpful.
Blue tux.... ala Dumb and Dumber.... (he said that since he wore the Orange one for his high school grad that somehow justifies this!)I almost cried when I found out he was serious and said I am not getting married to someone in a blue tux!He wonders how people will know he's the groom if all the men are in black suits.

OMG! Are we marrying the same guy??
He wants the wear the blue and have his guys in orange. Dumb and Dumber is one of his favorite movies.
Our wedding colors are dark purple with red, yellow and orange flowers - I mean a more natural, fall orange and he thinks Dumb and Dumber orange tuxes will match perfectly.
Swords for groomsmen gifts and an open bar. Yeah, nothing will go wrong there.
Mine has been great, but he really wanted "we're registered at ..." on the invites. No dice. We're still in an uneasy truce over handwriting/clear stickers on the outer envelopes (he's a MailMerge fanatic), which is about to come to a head now that the invites have arrived.
Was finally able to convince him that we can't have the nieces/nephews in the wedding party and my bridesmaid's kids in attendance but put a ban on other kids. (After the Save-the-Dates had gone out to whole families instead of just Mr./Mrs.)
The most recent facepalm moment (and there have been thankfully few) is my mom, who is much too weak/frail/sickly to participate in the 20-minute hora dance he's excited about. I suggested we pull up a chair for her near the action, and station someone to hang out with her so she doesn't feel left out. His suggestion: "Well, maybe we can put her in a chair and people can take turns carrying/dancing with it." Mind you *I* am not even psyched about the chair part for myself! Again, this is, as another commenter put it so gracefully above, "I love you but ..."
My FH wants to enter the the reception to the theme song from the show strike back and wants to have bounce houses. I will say his food truck idea was actually pretty awesome.
I could start another discussion called "Stupid things my fiancé said."
While touring wedding venues, one of the reception rooms was set up with a sweetheart table. My FI asked why there was a little table and I informed him it was a sweetheart table and that we will most likely have one at our wedding. He was shocked and said "what are we going to talk about for 3 hours??" Um....if you're worried about talking to me for 3 hours at a wedding reception maybe we shouldn't go to Hawaii for 2 weeks for the honeymoon!!
