Have any of your Fiance’s been exicted about the “act” of getting married and the cermony, but they are NOT what-so-ever excited about the reception? Any help any this area would be great! Is there something I can think about so I don’t start crying or get upset? He is not interested in the wedding and he didn’t think that there would be so many details that go into a wedding. We are marrying in another city and I told him that when it starts to get closer to the wedding I might need to start going down there more. He just about had a heart attack. Is ANYONE going through this? How do I handle this??? He would like the whole thing to be over with in 2 hours; cermony, eat, say our thank yous, have our 1st dance then get out of there. I’m going on and on now…sorry.

Does he not like a good party with friend and family. Maybe if you focus on the fact that you are planning something that will be FUN and AWESOME he will get more excited about it. My FI wants to be included in the big decisions, but doesn’t care about all the details. He is most excited about being able to celebrate with everybody we love all in one place.

From my understanding, this is a pretty common thing. *BOTH* myself and my FI would prefer a quickie civil ceremony and not bother with all the stress of a big wedding, but it’s about the joining of families and that means putting on detailed, nice, memorable event. Just remind him that all of these details are going into something the two of you, along with your friends and families, will remember forever.
And don’t stress too much about him not being too interested in the details, that’s just in dude DNA.

My guy is like that too. He really just wants to be married. I know he’ll have fun on the day, but he doesn’t understand or really care about the details and he wants everything over as fast as possible. I’m mainly just working around him.
