Spin-off: Are you planning anything for FI?

So, Ms.Griffin is surprising her FI with a band! And I just booked a haunted inn for my FI after the wedding. Which kind of got me thinking.


It's his day as well, and it's so easy to get caught up in our vision. And we all know we make sacrifices for the little details we want. But what has everyone done to make your wedding day also about your FI/SO?

I won't say it is for my fiance, but I do have a few surprises he doesn't know about yet.


I booked some reception entertainment and he doesn't know about the Photobooth.

DH wanted to run away and get married (& not invite anyone), we compromised with just inviting family. He also didn't want to give a speech. Other then those two things he really didn't care =]

His favorite group is the Dramatics, so I am going to have Damatic impersonators come in and do 2 songs. He will love it!!!!

My FI is a drummer...so his band will be playing at the reception and I plan on getting a grooms cake in the shape of a drum as a surprise.  I am also going to be looking into having a grooms table at cocktail hour.  Its a table set up with an ice scutlpture of his fav football teams logo surrounded by typical football food...wings, nachos, ect.

Reese cup cake? Oh, please describe this to me. I think that would make FI cry.

He loves 80s rock so I am trying to figure out way to incorporate it into the dinner/reception music.  He really wanted to second line, so we are doing that too.  His groom's cake is representative of his favorite football team.

I got him Jeep Cufflinks, because his Jeep is his other love!!  He got to pick out all the beer (since he is really into microbrews & brewing his own beer/growing hops).  Also, the beer flower arrangement our florist made.  I snuck his giant, personalized beer mug to our florist to use as a vase.  Still so, so sad there are no pics of it :'(
