Haha don’t dump the brownies, go back out and tell him if he doesn’t help you plan this wedding you’re gonna eat brownies every goddamn day between here and there and you’re gonna be massive for the wedding. Hahaha!

Ah no seriously, I’d be so mad at that man. Although he probably really didn’t expect your trick with the phone, and I know my fella would be livid if I dropped that on him like that. He hates being put on the spot.

Time to back track a bit. Maybe show him a wee list of all the things that *have* to be done in order to have a reasonable wedding. Then explain to him that the earlier you get some of these things sorted, the more realistic and small your budget can be.

And the more reasonable and calm you can be! He obviously does want a nice calm fiancee, so maybe explain to him that it’s just the type of person you are, that you do need to know things are getting done/crossed off the list to not get stressed about them.

And maybe remind him that this is certainly going to be the most expensive day of your lives, and as such, it should be carefully planned.

 

And tell him he’ll be wearing a brownie hat if he ever utters the words Bridezilla or Controlling to you again. Too far!!

grrr, i totally feel your pain! I feel like my FH is the exact same. I give him minimal tasks, and he STILL refuses to do them. It makes me feel like he doesn’t care about the wedding, and makes me doubt he even wants to get married! I hate it. Maybe that’s why you feel like you want to dump the brownies on his head?

If it was me, I’d go get the whole container of brownies and take it into the bathroom, run a bath and eat brownies in the tub – with the door locked. I might even blast some wicked girly music really loud.

Good luck!

I’m assuming you’ve met this aunt at least once? Maybe your best bet would be to ring her yourself. something along the lines of,

‘Hi Mrs.X, this is Melissa, I got your number from SillyBrownieHeadMan. I hope you’re all keeping well there, blah blah (amt of blah depending on how well you know her, obv). I just wondered if you were free to talk about flowers, or if we could arrange to meet up sometime soon to talk about it? I know it’s a little early, but I think it’d be no harm to get the ball rolling so that we know what we’re doing blah blah…’

Ohmygod, those look so good!

Just call the aunt yourself. He’s being a boy, they can’t seem to help it.

Just xplain to him that the more you can get done now the less stressed out you will be the closer you get. He needs to really understand that concept generally so that you dont have to repeat every time you want to cross something off your wedding checklist that he feels is too early for
