    @missashley884:  That sounds like my Fiance.  You’d think he’d be on top of his groomsmen to get their tuxes and stuff, but he’s not.  I’ve had to do all of that.  Any information anyone has gotten has been from me.  Of course, he has strong opinions on things, but he doesn’t help out any.  I tracked down all the missing RSVPs when they were all his family.  I’ll work on stuff after dinner and he’ll sit there watching tv.  He doesn’t offer to help and won’t do it even if I start complaining.  It’s very frustrating.

    he’s amazing.  at this point, i’m so over planning, and he’s totally running the ship. he’s been super involved the whole time though.  it’s been a partnership for sure.

    Mr. Dragon was pretty up front about not wanting to be involved with a lot of stuff. We have differing opinions but I care about details more than he does, so for the most part I’m running the show. He’s handling a few things that he cares about, and he will help out if I ask — I just kind of have to keep at him to do it, and sometimes I have to get him started. For instance with our wedding website, I had to sit down with him and open up the site and get him going on it RIGHT THEN or it would not get done.

    Fiance is willing to help with things, but his time-table and mine do not jive.

    Fiance is pretty much trusting me with everything.  But we do most decision together.  I’ll bring some idea, and he helps chose.  I also told him he should choose the cake since he’s the expert when it comes to sweets, so he made the final decision on the cake.

    To my surprise, my Fiance has wanted to be involved in every step of planning so far.  He’s even made some choices I didn’t think he would go for, but was pleasantly surprised that he did.  So far we’ve been lucky and smooth sailing, even though we still have a long way to go.  All of his suggestions have been wonderful and we’ve actually agreed on everything.  I’ve been really lucky.  (so far!)

    I haven’t expected too much from my Fiance during planning.  I don’t expect him to help out with all my DIYing (although it would have been nice for him to offer to help me with the invites this weekend as he was sitting right next to me!) Or in calling anyone (The one time I gave him a calling vendor task I had to call them back the next day).  We have a vague idea about suits in which he has helped with some decission making.  But, like I said, I really don’t expect much.
