- Wedding: November 2014
I’m sorry, this will be a slight rant. I have been searching high and low for an awesome venue for about a year now. I have found hundreds of places, many of which didn’t work for one reason or another. But I also found some pretty awesome spots. Since I am in school and was getting all stressed with that, the FI offered to take over the venue hunt. I wanted to visit our potential venues over spring break and choose one. But he didn’t make a point to schedule anything. We finally visited a bunch of places and found this awesome farm that was affordable, rentable all day, and they let us do pretty much whatever we wanted. They didn’t have the exact date we wanted but they had the rest of September open so we were ready to book.
I asked FI if he would like me to call and book it or if he wanted to do it himself. He said he would take care of it. Well, he sat on it for awhile and now every Saturday is booked in September and October. Argh! I know it’s not that big of a deal and we’ll just get somewhere else or do it on a Friday or Sunday but I’m just so frustrated that I have put so much effort into finding something that is perfect and because he doesn’t follow through with things, we lost it for any of the dates we wanted. I was so excited about this place because it had everything we wanted and was our best outdoor option. I was really beginning to picture us getting married there and now I’m so disappointed.
I was so relieved that we had finally decided on a place and it was within our budget. I am so ready to be able to plan the rest of the wedding. Now we are back to square one. It has been like this throughout this whole planning process. I do all the work, FI offers to help, and then FI doesn’t do ANYTHING and I end up doing it. In the end, it just causes me more stress. I’m sure we will end up finding a great alternative and the wedding will be beautiful but I’m just ready to throw something at his lazy head. Does anyone have any advice on how to motivate your lazy SO? Or better yet, is there some secret to putting up with this?
