Bride plans wedding 10 years before meeting her groom Beth????
Guys would you ever marry a woman like this? Do you think Beth had her fairy tale wedding all planned years in advance?
Bride plans wedding 10 years before meeting her groom
Say what you will about the bride, but there's one thing you can't call her—a procrastinator.
When Shawn Owens proposed to his girlfriend Kate, she accepted. And then she whipped out a binder that included every detail of the couple's wedding, down to the menus. The binder was aptly labeled, "Life." Years before Kate even met Shawn, this wedding had been painstakingly planned.
"I think some people probably thought I was nuts," Owens told ABC News.
Kate even went so far as to book a band back in 2003. She saw them playing at a bar and thought they would be perfect for her sometime-in-the-future ceremony.
"I booked my band nine years in advance. I said, ''I don't have a groom, but if you guys are still around, will you play my wedding?'"
For nearly a decade, Kate had been perfecting her big day. She hired a wedding planner, picked out the dresses and even knew what hairstyles she wanted for her wedding party.
"I knew the style of wedding dress I wanted. I knew what style bridesmaids' dress I wanted. I knew the color scheme. I knew I wanted it to be outdoors."
When she met Shawn, she didn't him about these plans--understandable. So when he proposed, and Kate revealed her secret, Shawn says he was "a little surprised." But eventually, he learned to appreciate Kate's…er…
initiative. "The fact that she had so much planning done ahead of time, I realized how low-stress this process was going to be."
Is Kate's behavior odd, or is she just highly-organized? Is it okay to plan the wedding without the groom? The Heart Beat talked to Kristin Banta, who owns an event-planning firm in Los Angeles.
"These are two people coming together for a union. They should be united in their planning and be on the same page. It should not be all about the bride," Banta told us. "This is their first opportunity to present something reflective of them as a married couple. And I'm not sure why or how this idea of it being solely 'her day' has come about."
To be fair, Shawn did have some input when the couple married last June:
"He picked out the tux that he wore," Kate said. "He picked out the suit and everything that the guys wore. I just gave him a color scheme to work with."
Shawn revealed that he and Kate are now working on starting a family. We bet the colleges are all picked out.
I saw that story the other day on the news. Woman is nuts. You can't hook up with someone like that... She has everything planned out for eternity and anything you do will never be good enough because of her preconceived notions. I'd be all if we met and she pulled that list out of her tight pocket.
but seriously good luck to the groom.

I think alot of women are like this (well not to this degree). I guess I am the exception. I think the whole elaborate wedding is a big waste of money. Use the money to go to a nice beach (vacation) put it towards house etc... Didn't Joan Rivers spend like a million dollars on her daughter's Melissa wedding? How long did that last two years.
