Ummm..not really lol

He has told me over and over “whatever you want” etc until I show him something he doesn’t like and then he’s very clear to tell me.  He did obviously go to look at our venue and he went to the cake tasting.  He’s also going to be in charge of picking out the men’s attire but everything else is up to me.  He’s a big procrastinator so it’s really better this way. Hah!

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  To date the only thing he’s done is fight me on the idea of a tie with mint green in it. He apparently hates mint green. lol.

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Ugh. Nothing. We are just over two months out now and I’m having some serious anxiety because there’s still so much to do. He asked what he could do to help. I said that first I needed him to figure out for sure who his groomsmen would be (there are work issues that may prevent one or two from attending), decide what they will all wear, and make sure his time off is officially approved. That was days ago. Is ANY of that done?? Nope.

@taraelisabeth:  I have asked my fiance at least 5 times who his groomsmen are going to be…he keeps changing his mind.  He thinks because he’s been in 7 weddings that all of them (and then like 5 fraternity brothers) need to be IN our wedding.  I can’t believe y’all are 2 months out and he hasn’t decided! What are you doing about suits/tuxes? I haven’t researched much yet about them but figured it need a bigger window than that for ordering..

@goingtotherooftopoflove: Mine was good at talking things over with me and we came to joint decisions. He chose the bands and made our table numbers

My FI has actully been really involved. We make most decisions together, although it is usually me presenting the ideas to him. He has come to every vendor appointment and was actually the one to pick out and complete our invitations. He also put together our entire wedding website and regularly updates it.

@Kir32:  +1

my FI is wayyy involved!  Even gets in on the drama!  He recently found the apartment we will live in once we’re married, paid deposits, etc.  He chose his cake at our tasting and gave our cake lady his design ideas.  He also picked out his tux and the suits for the groomsmen!  Now he’s working on our Disney honeymoon!  He has been a great partner in this!

@MouthOfTheSouth:  We bought his suit but them for his guys they are just wearing gray pants, a white button up, and then either a tie, suspenders, something. Should be an easy decision, right! Glad mine’s not the only one who can’t even pick guys to stand there for ten minutes!!

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  That is super sweet! Love that!

 

My Fiance makes the “final decision” or so he thinks…he is really my tie-breaker when I cannot decide…lol.

I want his input, so I am the researcher etc… then I come to him with options of “which do you like better?”. So far he has “chosen”:

guitarist over pianist

the invitation design

the cake design

his tux

It is actually surprising how much he really is not involved until I ask or we search together, like if I wasn’t planning this, who would? would we be having a wedding??? It is not like he comes to me and says “look what I found on pinterest for centerpeices” or anything.

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  FI has been very involved. We make all decisions together though we take the lead on different things based on what we are more interested in. He’s leading on STDs, invitations, website, cake, and his outfit.
