The process of planning a wedding is rife with opportunities for couples to disagree about minute details. Whether the groom's idea of an ideal wedding cake is red velvet while the bride prefers chocolate mousse or the bride's love of country music clashes with the groom's devotion to heavy metal, squabbles are an essential facet of the big-day preparation process. However, as with a couple's relationship itself, it is important to recognize which divisive issues deserve attention, and which aren't significant in the grand scheme of the wedding. From fonts to fondant, read on for the top times it's completely alright to disagree with your groom about the wedding. After all, compromising on a detail or two will simply create a wedding that better represents both the bride and groom.
1. Who your best man and maid of honor should be
A best man with a taste for inappropriate jokes or a maid of honor who has a proclivity for impromptu dance-offs may not please your significant other, but they will hardly bring your wedding to a crashing halt.
2. The font on your wedding invitations
Intricate calligraphy expertly scrolled on each invitation by hand may not be everyone's cup of tea, but if the resulting product is legible and aesthetically pleasing, why not indulge?
3. The color scheme of your wedding
Your groom may not understand your pink and gold color scheme, but what truly matters is the love you share, not the hue of your sweetheart table and centerpieces.
4. The decorations on your getaway car
If the groomsmen decide to decorate your vintage ride with silly string and solo cups, so be it. A bit of whimsical decoration will simply add flair to your exit.
5. The design of the groom's tuxedo
Just as each bride is entitled to a wedding dress that suits her taste, every groom is entitled to a unique getup for the big day. So long as the groom doesn't march down the aisle in an ensemble you find repulsive or inappropriate, you should allow him free reign to embrace his personal style.
