@StL.Ashley:  Haha glad he stepped up to help. DH was awesome at the beginning, helping to call venues and what not, but after he picked out his tux, he checked out. I put the Knot checklist in front of my DH’s face when we were planning becuase he thought I didn’t have that much to do. He was helping in a hurry after that and realized why I was so stressed out.

@StL.Ashley:  I love “It’s not a surprise party for FI”!  Good for you guys!

Mine really loves the *idea* of helping, and he really likes doing wedding stuff WITH me, but doing it alone is a whole different strugle.  He contacted a few photographers last night though, so I have high hopes!

I admit to having to push FI to get going on some things, but others – like for instance, we’re planning on sending our documents over to the resort this weekend so that can get processed since we’re 5 months out and they need it by 60 days out – he had his divorce decree all ready before I even had a chance to ask if he’d looked for it. 😛 

I think all they care about is that we show up and we’re happy, and sometimes they think that they won’t know what we’ll like or what’s pretty and just would rather let us run the show.  Sigh… lol

Men not helping out with the wedding planning is completely foreign to me. The wedding is as much mine as it is my guy’s, so we work as a team to choose our inspiration and plan.

I gave FI a To Do list of all the things I expected him to do. I told him I was not planning OUR wedding by myself.

@letigre:  Foreign to me too, we’re not even officially engaged and many nights he’ll spend time showing me things he’s found online, like venues, food ideas, honeymoon options. It’s been so much fun this way, he’s even given me some input on wedding dresses which I like.
