  • Wedding: July 2010

First off, big hugs. It sucks to have this happen. My FH did the same thing, all the best intentions and none of the follow through. It took me making him sit down and explaining that the wedding industry was a competitive place and we would never have the wedding we both wanted unless we both put in the work. After that he started becoming much more proactive with wedding stuff. 

You’ll figure something out. And you’ll look back at this and laugh. But I know it’s hard right now and it’s totally understandable to be upset. Again, big hugs.

  • Wedding: October 2010

If you really want that place and Sunday works — then go for a sunday. I am doing my wedding on a sunday and it has made everything so much easier for getting the vendors too. I don’t know if you had your heart set on Saturday — thats a different story but for our venue we were able to have it all to ourselves on a Sunday and able to choose starting times and all that. Just appealed to us — and since its an October wedding — we didn’t want to be locked into either a 11:30 start (too early for us) or a 6:30 start (too late in the evening).

When it comes to the wedding planning I’ve found that if I want it done right I just do it myself. No one will care about the wedding as much as the bride so unless I absolutely NEED my FI to do something I do it myself.

For (most) guys I feel like the wedding is less of a big deal so they’re less motivated to do things in a timely manner. Plus they have NO IDEA how early things can be booked out etc. so they thing they can call the week before and everything will be cool. 🙂

I’m so sorry. On the plus side, Fridays and Sundays can be A LOT cheaper, so you might not only get your venue, but save a great deal on other vendors as well. Best wishes.
