I’m just super curious…are you happy with your FI’s wedding planning help? I personally, am super happy. My Fiance pretty much stays out of things but will offer an opinion if I ask and is really sweet about going to conslutations (meeting the florist & photographer). The only thing he’s really cared about is the more lifelong decisions, such as our registry and ketubah. So, I think he’s got his priorities right 😛 How about you??

My Fiance sounds a lot like yours :). I’m very happy with his involvement. He is more than happy to be as involved or uninvolved as I want him to be.

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
Planning’s been pretty good- he’s not causing me any stress, thankfully. There are a few things he really wants (like a rehearsal dinner even though we’re not having a rehearsal-??), and we’re doing almost all of them.

@lanipapillon: He lets me blab on & on to him about place card holders and what shade of purple our cardbox should be.. and just smiles & nods in agreement. He’s helped with the big decisions (the date, the venue, the food) but as far as the little details, the only the bride cares about, he lets me do whatever I want.. and that’s the way I like it!

My situation is a lot like yours. I try to consider my Fiance in the plans and ask his opinion, even if it is nuetral, or he doesn’t really care. So far he has gone on every consultation with me, and been supportive. Sometimes I wish that he would take more charge in certain situations, (I asked him to call to the DJ’s and then had to call them back the next day), but overall I don’t mind that he has pretty much taken a back seat to the planning.

@X0JLYNN03: your Fiance sounds super sweet!
and everyone else who responded, I’m glad to your FI’s are also laid back, but cooperate. Doesn’t it make things so much easier?

My guy is def involved and I love it! He should be I mean it is his wedding too not just mine (I’m not marrying myself!) 🙂 But that’s the way we are with everything we ask each others opinions and come to a decision we’re both happy with!

He was involved in:
Choosing the venue
Choosing the DJ
Picking out the tuxes
He also went with me to the menu tasting and cake testing. But as far as flowers, invitations, other small details go, he could care less! Which is fine by me… I don’t mind planning most of the stuff by myself.

I have assigned mine a few things and he has done registering with me as well as any vendor meetings but as far as the details and stuff my MoH has pretty much helped me with. I do wish that he would take more on but that’s something we have to talk about, i just have to assign him a few more things so I can check them off. I think he can handle reserving a town car to the airport lol. I have a friend who’s fh has been very picky and opinionated and she said while she appreciates it it’s actually super obnoxious so I’m glad I’m not dealing with Someone nixing every idea I have!

My mom and I are doing almost all of the planning. Fiance has a few opinions but he doesn’t really care very much. I run everything by him and he takes an interest when I tell him, but floral arrangements and up-lighting aren’t really his thing!

I voted for the last thing, haha. He does have opinions, but only on certain things. For example, he couldn’t care less about flowers so that’s up to me, which I like. I’m happy!

My Fiance is pretty involved. I have to do all the research and then give him options. But he throw throws ideas out there. I love his help! This last week he wanted nothing to do with weddings though and that was a sad day since I really wanted help narrowing things down this week.

Im in Delaware planning our wedding and my Fiance is stationed at Fort Riley in KS, so he has absolutely no imput with anything! He’s basically going to show up. Im planning the wedding completely by myself, and although i would like his imput, its not really possible, so im keeping everything a secret. but im picking everything according to what he likes so hopefully hell enjoy all his surprises!

Ugh it has been like pullin teeth to get Fiance involved and to help! The only thing he really had a part in was picking the venue, which he had a couple strong opinions about, but really doesn’t care about anything else. It’s frustrating because I am indecisive and could really use the help!

He’s been very good so far, I ask for his opinions, he gives them to me and I take them into consideration hehehe… he is loving that I am crafty and am doing TONS of DIY!
