Another post on another board reminded me of something my DH asked me during the wedding process. I thought I would share and want to hear things your SO/FI/DH/DW has said.
So one day while watching TV there was a bride with a veil on. DH turned to me and said "You are not going to be wearing one of those mosquito net thingies over your face are you?"
Seriously, all I could do was laugh. I guess years living in the islands sleeping under nets made him see veils in a different light. I had already bought my dress and planned on NOT having a veil (much to the sales persons dismay - apparently you are not a bride unless you had a "mosquito net-thingy"), but the comment pretty much closed that subject.
What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests. Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.
