Our wedding is creeping up! October 10th is just around the corner and we are running around like crazy people! I swear, there aren’t enough hours in the day and our weekends are booked like no other. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever been this busy in my life. I don’t mind, but I’m looking forward to the crisp fall and being snuggled in a blanket burrito…but until then WE WERK!
As my mom, bridesmaids and I decide on what shoes, what centerpieces, and everything in between– what are the boys thinking? Grant has a countdown on his phone (so sweet!) and was eager to pick out his tux for the wedding (Vera Wang, you know how to dress a guy!), but is there anything else? Usually, it is us brides making decisions and focusing on every little detail. SO, I sat down with my groom and the best man. I figured it would be fun to do a little wedding Q&A. If you want a sneak peek into what happened, lets just say we would be having a VERY casual wedding featuring black flowers…I know.
Meet Grant (G) and Andrew (A). A little background on these guys. They’re best friends from high school. The kind of boy best friends that cheer each other on, but give each other a hard time and it is HILARIOUS! Andrew also helped us moved TWICE, he’s the ultimate.
Without further adieu, I present to you the mind of these two wedding planners…
How do you feel about getting married, Grant?
A: Grant is ecstatic and can barely contain his excitement. He talks about it everyday and how he is so lucky to have such a beautiful bride.
Andrew, if you were to throw a bridal shower for Grant, how would it go down?
A: If I were going to throw a bridal shower for Grant? I would throw a groom’s shower, not a bridal shower. Is it a groom’s party or a bridal party?
S: It can be a grooms party.
A: A grooms party, cool. Much better. First we would go to the horse track to get the day started– betting on some ponies and having a good time. Go out for dinner at Ditka’s…
G: Ditka’s is disgusting, put Morton’s.
A: And after our wonderful dinner at DITKA’s, we would head over to the piano bar and troll the piano man with Garth Brooks requests. Then probably go back to the apartment, watch some Netflix and get hyped for the wedding.
How do you feel about wearing bowties?
A: I’m stoked.
G: Great. It’ll be chill.
Brides usually are very into what flowers will be at the wedding. Grant, you just recently went to the flower shop with me. What flowers would you have at the wedding?
A: Only flowers that are worth the bride’s special day.
G: Black ones, because black matches everything. Is there such a thing?
You are walking down the aisle. What song is playing?
A: A pre-wedding hype song?
G & A: Africa by Toto.
How would you decorate the wedding cake?
G: It would be a DQ Cake. An icecream cake.
A: Whatever my wife likes….
S: That didn’t answer the question…
Do you have any fears about the wedding?
A: Nothing. I am completely at peace with this wedding.
G: My biggest fear is that my beard won’t look good.
If you were able to choose your wedding wardrobe, what would you wear?
G: V-Necks. Black V-Necks. With black sweatpants.
A: Whatever my wife wants me to wear.
S: Andrew, I’m seeing a trend…
If you could change anything about the wedding, what would it be?
A: I didn’t want salmon…I said it four times.
S: Salmon isn’t an option….Grant?
G: I wanted salmon. No, I’m joking. I want a destination wedding.
Wedding favors. What would you give your guests as a thank you for attending?
A: For my wedding…Party favors. Geez. A flask with the last name and wedding date.
G: A golden a retriever puppy and if they don’t want it, I get to keep it.
After this, our conversation was mostly just laughs instead of questions. We made cookies in our new mixer, so we had to tend to those. Cookies always win. There you have a sneak peek into the minds of the wedding men. Do you have any good questions to ask them as the wedding approaches? As you can see, they are good for a few laughs.
To all our grooms and bestmen out there, we’re sorry your wedding may not be super casual and we hope your facial hair(whether that be clean shaven, scruff, or full blown beard) is on point. We also wish you the happiest days with your partner and to ride off into the sunset with your “hype song” blasting.
