    There are many things I did in preparation for my wedding. None of them were anything like that. I feel for you.

    Why do you have to go to a bridal expo? You can just pull up The Knot web site and see all the same things - neatly organized by category.

    If I had to guess....because he needs to pick his battles.

    And when it comes to wedding planning he would probably be fighting uphill...lol.

    @CB Jones nailed it. She wants to go. There are other things I'm probably going to be/are already in disagreement with her about the wedding, this is one where letting her have her way is probably the smarter choice.

    That is so sad... @gpseymour and I had so much fun with our wedding - we keep saying we should get divorced so we could have another one. No expos. No bridal shops. I bought one bridal magazine - to make sure the Universe doesn't explode in case I didn't. That was pretty much it. I think our only "glitch", if you can call it that, was that the first menu we submitted raised some eyebrows - they had to remind us we were only going to have 36 people and not 70 and not 100. So, lesson learned - never plan an event menu while hungry. :)

    Sue and I had a judge come out and marry us at our house with family and a few close friends. Because she wanted a wedding here. Then we went to England and exchanged vows on the battlements of one of the castles we stayed in. Because that's what I wanted.
    But here's the genius part.
    The two weddings were exactly a week apart, and the one in England was on the anniversary of our first date, to boot.
    Since the one here was her desire, every year she plans what we're going to do and takes me out, and I do the same for the one in England. So I'm 100% immune to the man-fear of forgetting an anniversary. Unless she also forgets, I'm guaranteed a 1 week reminder. And if she forgets, then I've got a Get Out of Jail For Free card. Pure genius, if I do say so myself.

    This is Amberley Castle. We got married right outside the gate tower to the right.

    Yes. That is quite brilliant. And now I want a castle.

    We're actually both enjoying it. We argue about certain points, but we both enjoy that part too. I'd be fine with the expo, if it didn't take away from my martial arts time

    Her mom was also very insistent on us having a large wedding-her family is a big italian family, so apparently it's "expected". We agreed, only if she paid for the venue. We've still got to pay for everything else, but a large chunk of it is gone.

    Oh, stop it. You've wanted a castle for years.

    Yeah, but now I REALLY want one. Since I know people who had been to one. Also, the hairstylist who did my hair today has a bull mastiff. So, I want one too.

    Mastiffs are the best!

    I used to have a Cane Corso mastiff...just a big baby but great family watch dog.

    There are plenty for sale...

    I think Caverswall is up for sale right now. We stayed there, too. Very nice place. Walled (but not crenelated...) and still partially moated.
