What Men Really Want
Here’s the lowdown: for a dude, a big, extravagant wedding is not something he's ever dreamed about. He’s not interested in looking at a zillion photos of cakes. He’s doesn’t care if you choose the navy napkins over the white. And he sure as poop doesn’t care if you invite his second cousin and his brood.
The reality is that your hubby-to-be is happy to keep your love fest a small and sweet affair. But don’t mistake his nonchalance for not caring about his wedding at all. There are some things that may just pique his interest. So the next time you find yourself punching the air in frustration because you can’t get an answer out of him, throw him a bone with one or all of these ideas. He will bite. I know it. Read on!
1. The Food
He food very seriously, right? And he loves pizza, right? And wings? So why end your night with a trip to his favourite pizza joint? I know what you’re thinking right now, but trust me, you won't for a moment feel like it's just an ordinary Friday night.
2. Your Look
I’m guessing that like most brides-to-be, you want to look and feel like a movie star on your wedding day. And rightfully so. It’s your time to shine! But before you go all Ru Paul crazy with the makeup, remind yourself that your man expects you to just look like you on your big day. So choose your hairstylist and makeup artist wisely (there are soooo many talented ones in Calgary!), and forego the heavy makeup and the big hair for your wedding if it’s way outside of your day-to-day look. Just remember that he fell in love with you the way you are, so just amp it up a little and highlight your best features.
3. His Family
There’s a really good chance that there’s a family member or two of his whom you just plain don’t care for. But remember that they’re his family. And logically, he wants them to be a part of his big day. So before you finalize your small guestlist, have a serious chat with your future hubs to determine exactly who is on his "A" list.
