Hi Bees! I am recently engaged and super excited to plan my wedding. Unfortunately, my fiance does not share quite the same level of enthusiasm. I have come to accept that he may not swoon over photographers or flower or details, but I am finding that he doesn’t really have interest in helping me scope out venues either! He DOES want to have a say, and ultimately he does want to help pick, but I set up 3 appointments at potential venues this weekend and he is already asking if he really has to go! Any advice out there? Should I just go alone and give him the recaps?

Go alone. You have 3 appointments set, so you might not even like the places. Take your mom, sister or a friend with you. Narrow it down to which one(s) you like and then take him back there.
My fiance went to most with me, but because of his work schedule, couldn’t always do so. I ruled out a place he never even saw.
Be honest with him and tell him that you would like him to go with you and show some interest. He probably will want the lowdown on what the food is, and what the bar situation is. That’s what most guys really care about. This gives you the freedom for choosing other things. Better than having a groomzilla.

Find out what things are important to him and make sure to include him on those things. Other than that take a friend or family member with you to pick out the other stuff. A lot of guys could care less about most of the details of a wedding but it doesn’t mean they don’t care about the marriage.

My fiance started out unenthusiastic and unopinionated about most things, but is slowly becoming more interested. Once more things start falling into place and it becomes real, he’ll probably start to get more excited.
For instance, he just recently contacted all of his friends and family for their addresses. As soon as the responses started coming in, something clicked and he magically started getting excited.
