How are you? I really love the advice you give to people. Keep up the good work. Well now it’s my turn. I’m getting married in two weeks and I have one big problem left to tackle–music.
My hubby to be and I can’t agree on what to play. I’m pretty eclectic with my tastes in music, but he listens to Maxwell ninety-five percent of the time. I’m not a big Maxwell fan at all.
My fiance keeps firing back that he let me do everything I want with the wedding–the cake, the seating chart, the registry, my dress…I explained to him the bride is suppose to have say so over all of that, but he doesn’t get it. We can throw a few Maxwell songs in, even do our first dance to one of them, but not the entire wedding. What do you think?
***Anti-Groomzilla, it sounds to me like your being a Bridezilla! Marriage is all about compromise, so you might as well begin now. Contrary to popular belief, the wedding belongs to the bride AND groom. If all he is asking for is control on the music then you should give into that. Besides, have you listened to Maxwell? Most of his songs are extremely wedding friendly. I recommend This Woman’s Worth when you walk down the aisle and Whenever, Wherever, Whatever for your first dance. Remember the most important thing about a wedding is not the gifts, music, or even the guests; it’s two people uniting as one for the rest of their lives. Congratulations darling!
