honey do

An incomplete list of things about which I’ve asked DJ to form an opinion:

Fonts. White vs. cream paper. Bridesmaid dresses. Bridesmaid dresses, again. Shades of ivory shoes. Single vs. doubleface satin ribbon. Varieties of roses. Length of linens for the head table. Wording on the invitations. Kerning on return addresses. Music for the ceremony, cake cutting, and first dance. How to transport mannequins safely. Which prom dress to buy for a mannequin. Whether his mom should have a wrist or pin corsage. If he likes this shade of blue-green fabric, or this one. Is this purse too small? Do my fake eyelashes look too fake? Cake toppers. Programs or no programs. Too-red hair, or not red enough? Chairs or no chairs for the ceremony? If chairs, are the cheap white folding ones ok or do we need to spring for the more expensive wood ones? One escort card per couple, or one per person? Are these candles ivory or white?

No wonder they say the wedding is for the girl. Sorry, DJ. AND, he is somewhat colorblind. To his credit, he has come up with an opinion for every one of the points listed, and if pressed can even support his position. Without giving me a hard time. I think I'd better marry him.
