I keep reading posts about FI’s who have no interest at all in the wedding (which I am assuming is pretty typical of a guy). My FI however is completely opposite. He is totally into the wedding! He is always looking up things and coming up with ideas, he has scheduled cake tasting and bridal shows (I swear hes straight…lol) Just curious, does anyone else have an FI like this?

My FI is very involved, which has its pros and cons. Two heads are not necessarily better than one when it comes to color schemes!

mine is! he wasnt into helping at first. but he saw that i really wanted him to and needed his help and now i think he actually enjoys the planning. since we’ve been ldr for much of the planning process, it have been a g-dsend that he’s been helping so much.
i agree that it is probably not the norm, but i am really happy that its been working with us.

Mine is more like “I don’t know. What do you think? Sounds good.” or “How much extra is that?”

Mine is!! He was the one who started looking up venues, and found a lot of great ones, but most importantly, the one we’re using!

Mine is! Of course the whole thing is still pretty new and we haven’t done a whole lot.

My FH is. He is pretty active in the planning. Mostly I pick stuff out and narrow down the choices then he approves it (he is not as specific as me, but he likes to see what I am picking out). We both feel that this is OUR wedding so we should both have a say.

Nope… he has no interest. I wish he did =(

Ugh NO – he has his things that he cares about but for the most part he doesn’t really care about wedding details and really just wants to marry me 🙂
I don’t mind though because then I get to make all the decisions 😀

My fiance has a hard time coming up with big things like the theme and decorations and everything. He wants me to get what I want. However, he does lots of the calling to set appointments and more practical scheduling, guest list, those kinds of things. However, he proposed to me with the location in mind-we’re getting married where we got engaged at! <3 So, I think he’s probably quite the planner. He’s just so set on making sure I get what I want that he leaves that part up to me and I just tell him what I need him to do and he jumps on it. Jojo- my fiance makes those same comments all the time! That’s why we’re working so well, haha. I’d say the planning has been an even split so far. =) Just like I wanted.

Surprisingly enough, my fiance is quite helpful in the planning. I think it’s mostly because he doesn’t want me to stress out too much lol. He likes to give his input when I ask him for ideas or opinions, but his answers often end with “Don’t worry, nothing will happen without your approval.” He’s also given me his opnion of what kind of dress I should wear….all this from a guy who doesn’t like to plan stuff!

Oh, mine TOTALLY is! At first, we were a lot like @Mrs.Louboutin, I gathered info & options & FI chimed in. As planning has gone on, he’s heading most of the non-church, non-attire duties, while all church & attire decisions are almost solely mine. With my secondary input & opinion, HE designed & executed our DVD STDs, brochure-like invites, baseball card escort cards, & our 8×10 autograph glossies of each party of guests to sign as our “guest book.” He’s in-charge of our tastings & our website & he’s even planned out the caravaning of our guests from where they’re staying (near our place) to the church & back to our reception venue (back near our place). He keeps us on schedule with all our appointments & such. He’s a planner & organizer by nature, which I think many guys are not…I just got lucky!

I think my guy is more of the seeing my projects come to fruition. I come up with a plan and he executes it. Like when I discovered that having 100 shepherds hooks with hanging candles was not feasible I came up with a plan to build 100 standing candle holders that are about 4 feet tall and he has gathered supplies and built them and he has even found all the hurricane glasses. But he definitely wants nothing to do with the flowers or dress part of it all. He did have some very definite request for the food tho.
