@shellersbabe:  You just described my life! lol We are 150 days out…and while a lot of things are planned, most of it has yet to be acted upon because he is dragging his feet. Soooo frustrating! Its like he thinks….oh, weve got all this time, no rush. The man must be delusional! 😉

@shellersbabe:  Same here!  158 days and I feel like it isn’t going to happen on time.   I feel like he thinks it’s going to plan itself!

Make your life easier.  When you want his input, stop asking open ended questions.  Provide 3 acceptable options and ask him to pick his favorite.  Accept the fact that he doesn’t care what flowers you have in your bouquet or on the tables.  Most men can’t tell the difference between a peony, cabbage rose and a dahlia, let alone the slight shade differences in color.  Take advantage of his interests.  If he wants to be involved in certain aspects, encourage him!  And for the parts where he could care less, ask someone else who IS interested.  This is what mothers, FMILs and bridesmaids are for.

Are you feeling overwhelmed because you have so much to do that you don’t know where to start? I would suggest making up a checklist kid things to do and your them in order of priority, then go through that list methodically. That might help you get direction. As for your FI not helping – I guess he’s probably not interested in the small details. Try picking some things he might be interested in, for example the food or the music, and make that his responsibility.
