You know, wedding planning was a lot more fun when it was a theoretical wedding and I was the only one planning it. Things get complicated when people and money are involved. S. and I agree on a lot of important things about our wedding - it's about our commitment, and sharing that in a fantastic party with our family and friends. Things we don't agree on? The planning process. Here is S. in the role of CPA while I play Typical Excited Bride.
S. - "How much does that cost?"
Me - "I don't know. I'll call and find out. What kind of colors do you like?"
S. - "Colors? What are you talking about? What do we need colors for?"
Me - "Because that's like, the second step of wedding planning. I like green and gray."
S. - "Why? Where do the colors go? How much does that cost?"
Me - "Nothing, it's just a unifying concept. What do you think of this invitation?"
S. - "It's fine. But what is the point of planning all of this without numbers?"
Me - "Ummm...it's fun? We get to decide on things together?"
S. - "Talk to me when you have numbers."

Yeah. That's pretty much how our wedding discussions go.
