In general my FI has decided to leave all wedding planning to me. When I ask him for opinions he usually says “I don’t care do what you want.” Every once in a while he has a sudden opinion that he feels very strongly about. Sometimes it’s about little things that I would have never thought he would even care about. For example, for our little bird wedding favors he is vehemently against them being in any sort of packaging where you can’t see them. It’s always some weird random little detail like that.
Do any of you ladies have an FI who normally couldn’t care less and surprises you once in awhile? What was the most surprising thing that your FI wanted to have a say in?

Haha thats great. Picturing a guy worrying about little bird favors is pretty funny. My FI has been too busy to really get involved with wedding planning. But one day, I was looking at random wedding stuff online and he saw these champagne flutes he wanted to have sooooo badly! They we like two halves and made a heart put together, cute, but I totally didn’t see that coming haha.

@lawschool bride: That’s cute and funny! I think I would be surprised if my FI had a sudden desire for a particular champagne flute set. Especially since he utilizes my wedding planning time as a way to go do things he wants to do like play video games or watch programs that I have no interest in.
The bird thing took me by surprise. I was staring at a bunch of little decorative bags in the craft store with him the other day. He asked why I was looking at them and when I told him responded with something along the lines of “You can’t cover them up! No just do something around the bottom of them!” It was pretty sudden. I must have stood there for at least a minute with the most stunned expression on my face. He was pretty loud too lol.
