@MsGinkgo:  Rant felt!  I don’t understand how guys who are regularly good with money can have no clue what goes into the cost of a wedding!  Like somehow the magic venue fairies appear and the venue is arranged, set up, and fully paid for.  I feel you there!  I’m not getting rid of my FI, but I have considered trading him in for used cooking oil sometimes.  I guess at least he finally looked at!

This happened to me too! Thankfully i was super on top of everything and my FI just needed to feel like he was taking charge. (He drafted up a budget document of his own while we were talking about it, even though i have sent him at least three budget outlines with updates in the last few months!) 

I know its all working out, but i’m with you – I wish he’d looked over it at least once since we’d started planning!!!

FI and I have an agreement, he knows the final budget and doesn’t ask any questions past that.  He gets have a say in everything he wants to but he isn’t allowde to ask how much it is. lol  Men can really be useless when it comes to this wedding stuff!
