My FI is lovely and supportive in everything i do.
But when it comes to my wedding planning (wich tends to be full of crazy ideas) he’s about as helpfull as a sleeping cat.
He complained that a two hours wait for our guests while we take our wedding photos was too much for them, that they would get bored. I have made a word search for them and we’re having a photobooth/guestbook signing and fresh fruits with champagne. I really liked the idea of having a wedding trivia as an icebreaker or just to make the time pass without guests beeing bored to death. He seemed to like the idea, but when i ask him for help with the trivia questions he just goes: “i told you i didn’t think it’s a good idea” (wich is not what he said when i made the suggestion) or “i don’t know/don’t care”..
So i’m getting a little bit anoyed and irritated that everythin i do to get our guests to have enough entertainment (wich seemed important to him) is met by a unenthuseastic (is that how it’s written?) comment.
So bee’s I need you to tell me I am completly normal and allowed to be a bit irritated by this.

HaHa. I think it’s normal to be irritated when he’s not offering an alternative to something you previously agreed about. Two hours is a pretty long gap, but I know many people do it and don’t worry about providing entertainment for adults who are waiting. You may end up with some drunk people if they’re standing around only eating fruit and drinking champagne,tho.
Can the photography time be cut any shorter?

@ItWasntMe: some of the time for photography will include our family photos (wich is most of our guests). they will have a bit of champagne (not too much though) and some non alcoholic alternatives. And since they are doing the photobooth as part of our guestbook (we’re doing prom style pictures of them all to go into the guestbook), after those they can put on the sillyhats and etc. and play around. Those who does not wish to do this can talk amongs themselves. We’re only having about 50 guests so there is not too long a cue on the booth or on the guestbook signing “station”. Just hoping it’ll be enough.
I also suggested to my FI that we do the standard wedding photos that day and then got redressed in our finery and had a more unusual fun photosession on a later date (but this idea was quickly killed since he hates to be taken pictures of). So i need the two hours to make sure i get atleast ONE photo of him (us) to use as thankyou cards. Haha.
